We stayed here during the scallop festival. We have not stayed often at private lodging but we so pleasantly surprised by the privacy and and space in this gorgeous setting. The hosts are fantastic and enthusiastic, helpful to get out bags to the room and then we were left alone in peace to enjoy our weekend on the terrace and...

The weather lifted and we had a wonderful time here. Fabulous location and even better hosts in dramatic landscape overlooking Mercury Bay. Spacious accommodation, beautiful kitchen and most interesting Italian wines. Look for Margherita's art!

Well, again researching TripAdvisor saw us depart to the perfect location for a 3 x day break in one of New-Zealand premier beach locations. Our hosts Margherita and Giorgio, the quintessential warm, generous Italian couple who from day 1 made us feel part of their family who we also privileged to meet. The apartment which is on ground floor was...

Lodges in New Zealand come in many forms. The property is perched atop a hill, high above the town of Whitianga with wonderful views across the bay which produces a warm glow from the sunrise in the morning . The Villa Toscana is a custom built villa incorporating a self contained 100 sq metre private apartment with two bedrooms, a...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Villa Toscana. Giorgio and Margherita were delightful hosts. We visited a gorgeous beach, fantastic pizza pad and quaint tea-house, all recommended by Giorgio and perfect for our escape from Auckland. We had a memorable weekend and enjoyed the spectacular view.

The views from this property are breathtakinig but they only begin to indicate the delights here. Your hosts, are still very Italian despite their long residence in NZ and they reflect in their sense of style, their understanding of quality and attention to detail much that is typical of their home country. A beautiful property which would be perfectly in...

We have stayed at Villa Toscana between January 2nd and 5th and we just hope it would have been longer. The location of the villa is pefect, the view is just breathtaking and the owners are so nice and caring. The amenities are numerous. For instance, you have your private outdoor jaccuzzi with a view om Whitianga bay. In addition,...

As unlikely as it sounds, it is precisely what it is!! As an extensively well travelled couple we were surprised to find only a few hours from our backdoor a place so pleasantly relaxing that we even forgot where we were. Villa Toscana was such a wonderful experience that Giorgio and Margherita will have to put with us again very...

Very warm and friendly hospitality, unobtrusive but always accessible. The many little extras were a pleasant surprise and the hosts Giorgio and Marguerite have actually thought of everything. They have created a truly authentic experience and nothing has been compromised. The fabulous views whilst being in such close proximity to the township were an added bonus. Ken and Audrey Wells...
