The Villa was a beautiful and well equipped place to stay the night. Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 small children and the house accommodated us easily and in style. I highly recommend a stay here.

Wow wow wow! What an amazing place! It's a beautiful, historic villa on the main highway going through Hokitika. There's loads of room, it's beautifully decorated and clean, and Debbie is the perfect, welcoming host. It was just us and my husband's parents for one night, but …

Response from Deborah:
Thank you for your awesome review Rachel. It's important to me that my guests enjoy their time at The Villa. So I was a bit shocked to read your earplugs comment. I'm not sure if you noticed all the road cones along Fitzherbert Street when you were staying? After your review I rang the council to find out exactly what they were doing. Turns out it was major work on a whole line of manholes which had sunk and were causing reverberating/clanging/banging issues whenever a vehicle went over them. During this work they had them only thinly covered so the noise was amplified. This IS NOT THE NORM!! Hence for anyone reading this review - please look at 8 years of reviews on (Website hidden by Airbnb) holidayhouses, airbnb and (Hidden by Airbnb) to see noise has only been mentioned three times - after the first two I double glazed the whole frontage. The work is being finished this week. So please note - no ear plugs required :) But Rachel - I'm soooo sorry your sleep was affected. I didn't know what the council was actually doing otherwise I would have let you know. They said the traffic noise would have been super loud over this period - heck!! I would not have been bothered at all had you just moved into another of the king bedrooms to ensure you slept well. I hope to meet you again one day if you come back to stay - you will be able to leave your earplugs behind I promise :) Kindest Debbie :)

Deborah went out of her way to make us feel welcome. When she learned we were running late, she offered to purchase steaks and other food for dinner to be ready upon our arrival. She also gave us some local options in town for dinner out. When we arrived at the Villa, there wa…
