Beautifully clean home, used Regina's bikes to explore the area at no cost. Honest and friendly host with a cute baby! Very helpful despite having a newborn, gave us good tips and recommendations on local wineries and eateries. We even had the big house to ourselves as there were no other guests at the time. Would recommend. Dat & Hong

Hi there I guess the friendly Irish welcome went out the door when prior to arrival one of your party emailed asking me to come out to the Airport and pick up her and her 4 friends (not guest's of the Villa Rose) and then went on to ask if they could all come back here at 0930 and loiter...

Villa Rose has many attributes, nice bedroom, swimming pool, washing and cooking facilities but we did not feel comfortable there. We had cause to return for night to Blenheim a few days later and we stayed elsewhere.

If you just want somewhere to crash for a night or two then Villa Rose could be a good option for you. If you're after personal service and attention you're probably best looking elsewhere. This homestay has a bit of a backpacker feel to it - too many rules and signs for my liking. Gina was friendly enough but I...

I would like to start with staying The Villa Rose is indeed exceptional value for money but not a cheap place to stay. We are only a year old and trying to get as many guest as possible so hence the low rates on the rooms. The signs around the house are there to help people find their way from...

We were left a little disappointed with Villa Rose but we think it was mainly due to Gina being preoccupied with organising the christening of her daughter when we were there. As this was the first night of our trip we were hoping to get some ideas of where to go but we felt like we were in the way...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful New Zealand villa. With such small numbers here it is easy to make friends but with five dining areas and three lounges it’s easy to spend time alone whatever your preference. Our home is your home - arrive to a warm Irish welcome. Come and grab a hammock to relax by the pool. Our home is stunning - you won’t be disappointed with prices starting at only $33.00 pp. ... more   less
