Villa 142 Luxurious Living

Cambridge has been bestowed the title of Most Beautiful Large Town in New Zealand. We are close to Hobbiton, Hamilton Gardens, Waitomo, Lake Karapiro and the list goes on.

Villa 142, built in 1914, is a traditional wooden villa now restored and decorated to give it a luxurious and modern edge.

Three generous bedrooms, two king and one queen size beds with two fabulous tiled bathrooms. Feather duvets and quality linen throughout with a choice of pillows. Electric blankets on all beds. Heating with vents to every room.

Large private secure backyard with seating under the olive trees and BBQ.

Complete laundry and dryer or clothes line, washing powder provided.

Two bikes in the garage gives you the opportunity to explore some of the fabulous bikeways around Cambridge, more can be rented just down the road from the I-Site.

We are a flat walk into town or around Lake Te Koutu, within minutes of the town centre or farmer's market on Saturday.
Antique shops, boutique shopping and a fabulous choice of cafes or restaurants make this village setting rather unique.

Villa 142 is spacious, comfortable, stylish and has all the amenities one could need. Location is perfect within walking distance of Cambridge centre, yet quiet and peaceful. Beds super comfortable with quality linen and showers great too. Highly recommend and would stay there again.

This is one of the best places we have stayed in anywhere in the world. It is immaculate and extremely stylish yet still manages to feel homely. It is about a 10 minute flat walk into the town centre, we haven’t needed to use our van since we’ve been here. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could possibly need and it’s a real pleasure to cook in.

This is an absolutely gorgeous Villa, very stylishly furnished with all the great comforts of home. We booked it for my Best Friends wedding and the Bridal Party prepared for the big day. It is spacious, stylish, clean, very comfortable and incredibly inviting. We thouroughly enjoyed our stay and cannot recommend the Host highly enough. Thank you so much Yvonne!

This home is just beautiful! Yvonne has made the home so welcoming and homely. Special touches down to the fresh loaf of ciabatta for us! Will definitely be back and cannot recommend this home (and host) highly enough. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didnt want to leave!
