Reviews from our Clients

“We really appreciated the great service from PetVilla and the way they looked after our little fur bundle.”

Dave, 13/06/2024

“Pippa, our 9yr old Lab was a bit put off having to leave after a 5 night stay. She will be looking forward to staying again”

Bryan, 06/06/2024

“Our dogs & cat have just spent another break at Mary’s. I recommend them to every pet owner I know. It’s super clean with lots of areas for the animals to be stimulated & exercised. Thanks Mary for taking the greatest of care with our animals, we have no worries when we take a break.”

Linda, 25/05/2024

“When I was about to leave overseas I was so anxious about leaving my cat Harold behind but I could not have left him in safer hands. I could check the Facebook page every week and it was clear to see that my cat was happy and calm in all of the photos. Mary and Frank went above and beyond for Harold and I and I am so Grateful! They were trustworthy, reliable, caring and communicative! I would recommend Kapiti pet villa for any pet parent looking to leave their pets in good hands, especially if it’s an extended period of time. Harold is now happily back home! Thanks again for everything, you were amazing!”

Siobhan and Harold, Auckland, 23/5/2024

“Outstanding cattery. Staff seem to genuinely love my cat and she’s always well settled and content when we pick her up again”

Tanja, 22/05/2024

“Such a relief to know that Chase was safe, warm and well entertained while in your care :) We are so happy that we can go away on holiday now & relax, knowing that he will be well taken care of. I actually think he was a little sad to leave when I picked him up – which is a good sign!!!”

Sparty, 17/05/2024

“My dog Vanya has been very well looked after at Kapiti Pet Villa. Great booking system and communication. Many thanks.”

Louise, 27/04/2024

“Both our cat and small dog have stayed at Mary’s Pet Villa. We’re always very happy with their service and care, knowing that our pets are in good and safe hands. They always return happy and well looked after and we always appreciate the photos and updates while we’re away.”

Juliane, 23/04/2024

“Our 2 boys Beau and Baxter stayed for about 1 week. They were super excited in the car when they realised where they were going, and it was great to see some photos on the Website while we were away. Highly recommend Kapiti PetVilla”

Jenny, Waikanae, 21/4/2024

“Wonderful service, great setup! Our Leo came home very happy. I highly recommend Kapiti PetVilla. We will definitely be back :)”

Deep, Otaki, 11/4/2024

“My small 14 year old dog had never been in kennels before so I was naturally concerned about how she would get on. I gave Mary lots of information about her in advance and was very pleased to see that all this was recorded in my dog’s record and Mary obviously bore it all in mind to ensure my dog had the most positive experience that she could. The facilities are great and beautifully kept so I have no hesitation in recommending petvilla”

Wink, Waikanae Beach, 30/3/2024

“Wonderful service…pick up and drop off so convenient. Our Lab came home happy, content and stress free. Have already booked again and would highly recommend.”

Dean, Lower Hutt, 29/3/2024

“This is the second time our cat Honey has boarded at Marys Petvilla. With reading the reviews we had peace of mind knowing while away that Honey would be well looked after in such a caring environment. Thank you. We will definitely be back”

Nila, Waikanae, 26/3/2025

“Very good experience that we had when we took our pet to Kapiti PetVilla and stayed there for 3 weeks”

Peter, Lower Hutt, 25/3/2024

“My Burmese cat has had many long stays here, and I cannot fault the care and attention he has received from Mary”

Richard, Otaki, 21/3/2024

“Amazing caring and knowledgeable. We’ve tried another place but theres no comparison. Our dog was happy, beautifully brushed and cared for when we picked him up. Awesome pics posted online of him which put us at ease, he was happy and said goodbye which was a great sign that he’d had a great time. We are so glad to have found a place we feel comfortable leaving our border collie. Highly recommend.”

Claire, Waikanae, 19/3/2024

“Kapiti Pet Villa is the only boarding kennel that our dog seems reluctant to leave at the end of his stay. Would highly recommend”

Alistair, Lower Hutt, 4/3/2024

“A great first stay at Kapiti PetVilla for my 2 dogs. Kapiti PetVilla were very reassuring as I was quite a nervous dog mom. They shared a double occupancy cabin which was a perfect size for 2 Spoodles.”

Lisa, Otaihanga, 30/1/2024

“The best dog boarding facility we’ve ever used. My dogs come home happy and have obviously been well looked after. I’m really fussy about where my dogs stay and have had some bad experiences in the past at other places. I’ve now used Kapiti Pet Villa numerous time and we’d never go anywhere else. Would highly recommend.”

Michelle, Upper Hutt, 29/1/2024

“Was lovely to check in on Cleo via webcam. She readjusted very quickly when she came home. Love the security of being able to leave her knowing she will be pampered.”

Ann-Marie, Otakim 15/2/2024

“A lovely rural setting. Kirk came home very happy. Kirk will definitely be coming to stay again. Thank you”

Leo, Waikanae, 16/12/2023

“We were really nervous about leaving our fur babies for the first time, but they really loved it, we got photo’s and they were really happy. Totally recommend Mary’s PetVilla for anyone needing fur babies being looked after. Will definitely book again.”

Fiona, Wadestown, 13/12/2023

“I was so worried about Jerry because he had never been in a cattery before. Ella and Frank were so kind – answered my emails and posted photos on Facebook. I can now enjoy my holiday without worrying about him.”

Judith, Wellington, 11/12/2023

“Perfect holiday home, great set-up and Mary is an absolute pleasure to deal with!!! Would not look to go anywhere else. Only guttered that we had a short overnight stay so our kitty wasn’t able to settle in as well as he could have. Will definitely be back”

Toya, Manakau, 23/11/2023

“Thank you so much for the attention, care and love you gave our three bunnies. You have a wonderful place, and perfect for our cherished and delightful wee guys. Thank you, and we’ll be in touch the next time we head away.”

Roberta, Raumati Beach, 3/11/2023

“Ayva obviously had a fantastic time during her holiday. Great to see photos of her on her nature walk and also having zoomies and races with her new best friend on her stay. It’s clear by the reports Mary gives that Ayva was well observed as to her behaviours and needs. We’re both VERY happy thank you! Would love a daycare space if ever one became available”

Carolyn, Paekakariki, 26/10/2023

“Our 2 dogs stayed for 4 weeks while we were away overseas. They were very well cared for. I highly recommend Mary and her team at PetVilla.”

Julia, Lower Hutt, 10/10/2023

“Our dog Indie spent a month at Mary’s Petvilla and arrived home happy and healthy. Would recommend to anyone wanting to be sure that their cat or dog is in great hands.”

JB, Paraparaumu Beach, 5/10/2023

“Saw all the positive reviews and checked out Petvilla online. Looked like a loving and caring place for pets. And it lived up to the reviews. Great welcoming, loved being able to keep up to date via the Facebook page. During pick up it was really nice to see the bond that had formed with our cat. Would definitely use Petvilla again”

Janine, Otaki, 19/9/2023

“Vinny (our 12yr old Corgi mix) had a wonderful time during his recent stay with PetVilla. Thank you for making sure he was settled in the right space and got lots of play time with the other dogs. We are very happy with our visit.”

Sarah, Waikanae, 14/9/2023

“We’re always grateful to Mary for her friendly and excellent care of our cat – and previously two cats. It gives us considerable peace of mind while away. We’ve been taking our cat/s to Mary for several years now and highly recommend her Petvilla.”

Kara, Paraparaumu Beach, 11/9/2023

“Mary and co did a wonderful job of looking after my two teenage cats which included the challenging task of administering medication for one of them. They had wonderful surroundings with the bright, clean and spacious cattery and returned to me happy and settled. They provided me with thorough feedback about how they went, which I was very grateful for. Many thanks, Mason and Frankie will be back.”

Jill, Waikanae, 8/9/2023

“I am very happy to recommend PetVilla. My two small dogs always come home happy, smelling good and I know that the team at Pet Villa look after them well. Also love the updates via their facebook page.”

Amber, Porirua, 20/8/2023

“Both Lucy, our Puppy, and Be our Cat, stayed at Mary’s Pet Villas. On our return both of our girls were in great condition and happy. We were very pleased!”

Joy, Waikanae, 10/8/2023

“We are very grateful for the wonderful care our cat received at Mary’s Pet Villa yet again. Mary has a wonderful rapport with our cat who is very happy at Mary’s PetVilla Cattery. We feel very reassured knowing our cat is getting great care and is so happy and relaxed. Mary and the PetVilla team are great to deal with – highly recommend! “

Catherine, Waikanae, 7/8/2023

“Very friendly and helpful.We were nervous about leaving Milo as he was a rescue dog, caged for 8 years, and we worried about leaving him. No worries, Mary made sure he was settled and he loved playing with the other dogs.”

Clive, Kapiti, 7/8/2023

“We have an older, very timid cat – Patch. We needed a place for her to stay for four weeks while we were away. PetVilla turned out to be ideal – they were professional and caring, and made sure that Patch was in a ground level condominium (she’s not up to jumping any more), and kept us updated on how she was getting on. Recommended.”

Neil & Jenny, Otaki, 26/7/2023

“Mary made us feel very welcome on our arrival at the kennels. Our Brittany, Wren was well cared for her two night stay – lovely personalised service.”

Louise, Waikanae, 25/7/2023,

“They were fabulous!! Both our doggos had a great time! Will definitely use again!”

Mel, Whitby, 24/7/2023

“We are fortunate to be long-term customers of Mary’s PetVilla – we board both our cats and dogs reasonablybregularly, and our dogs attend daycare 3 days a week. They love going there and they always come home happy and healthy. Would thoroughly recommend!”

Danny, Paraparaumu Beach, 22/7/2023

“Our dog loved his first time at Mary’s PetVilla. I appreciated the update while he was there and could tell it really is ‘a home away from home’ he was so cared for. Highly recommend! We will be back.”

Rachael, Wellington, 20/7/2023

“Love this kennel! We have one senior dog and two active adolescents. So accommodating to the dogs’ needs, and adapted to ensure they had a wonderful stay.”

Sarah, Tawa, 19/7/2023

“I always go on holiday knowing that my fur baby is well looked after at Mary’s Cat Villa. She’s warm, dry and feed and I don’t need to worry about her safety. I always get some feedback on my fur babies stay which I really appreciate. I wouldn’t take her anywhere else.”

Renee, Otaki, 18/7/2023

“As always we collected Theo who was calm and shiny with no weight loss. Always friendly professional service from Mary with updates if anything unusual happened.”

Rosemary, Waikanae, 16/7/2023

“Myrtle was very well looked after and came home happy. Thank you for taking good care of her.”

Tracey, Waikanae Beach, 15/7/2023

“As well as Carrot, we now also send our anxious and occasionally dramatic Spoodle, Ted, here too. He clearly enjoys himself (after he gets over the initial separation) and is well looked after. Highly recommended place – that we keep using as our regular, despite the fact that there are many other places much nearer to us.”

Peter, Plimmerton, 8/7/2023

“Mary made us feel at ease, as we were nervous about Benji’s first time spending the night outside our family home without us. It was nice to see Benji easily warming up to Mary, and his photos showing that he had fun playing with the other dogs. It was good to hear that they had an evening walk, and they used music to help him settle in his cabin. Thanks Mary and team – till next time.”

Joel, Porirua, 27/6/2023

“Our very shy cat had a longer stay at Mary’s Petvilla whilst we were overseas. We were impressed by how we were regularly updated on her progress with messages and photos. She has been well cared for by Frank and Mary who are very knowledgeable and clearly interested in the needs of the pets who come to stay with them. Thank you so much. We appreciate it!”

Louise, Waikanae, 26/6/2023

“Mary & Frank have looked after our 2 Huntaways on multiple occasions, and they are wonderful with them. Really patient and take the time to get to know each of the dogs. Extra walks are a bonus given our dogs energy levels and their love of the outdoors. Mary & Frank go out of their way to make sure we all have a great experience and when we go away we feel confident and happy that our dogs are extremely well looked after.”

AD, Te Horo Beach, 25/6/2023

“Apologies for only doing a review now after so many visits :) Mary and her team do a great job, and they are clearly passionate about what they do. Our cat is incredibly timid, and we have tried a number of catteries over the past two years with Mary’s being the one our cat feels the most comfortable. It’s always a huge relief when we can book our cat to Mary’s, highly reccomend.”

Nikau, Lower Hutt, 21/6/2023

“What a lovely location and great facilities – Milly was very relaxed from the start of her stay and when I collected her.  So nice for her to enjoy her own food – I’m sure this makes for happier pets, especially older ones!  I will definitely be recommending Marys PetVilla to others and Milly will be back for another stay soon.”  

SW, Kapiti, 21/6/2023

“Harry is a 1.5 year old rescue dog and he recently spent six nights at Mary’s Pet Villa Kennel. It was great to see how relaxed and settled Harry was when we collected him from the kennel, and we will definitely be booking him into Mary’s Pet Villa Kennel again. Nga mihi nui.”

Ronda, Raumati, 15/6/2023

“Thanks so much for looking after my little dog so well. It was great to know she was in a safe and caring environment.”

Kirsten, Waikanae, 6/6/2023

“Georgie loves going to Mary’s PetVilla. She’s always happy to be dropped off and excited to see us when we arrive back. We love seeing the photos on their Facebook page. It always makes us feel better seeing her having fun playing with all the other dogs. Would definitely recommend.”

Bobbie, Otaki, 6/6/2023

“Our dog had the best time at PetVilla’s. What an awesome place.”

Sally, Otaki, 12/5/2023

“Mary’s PetVilla is no ordinary boarding place. The staff and the facilities will exceed expectations. The team are animal focused, ensuring every member of your family is well looked after. They keep you informed of their progress during their stay. They are professional and always keep animal welfare at the centre of the business. Our two boys enjoy staying there and are always very happy. Using Mary’s PetVillas will give you peace of mind when you can’t bring your four legged family members with you. The quality of service starts from booking right the way through to when you pick them up. I highly recommend this wonderful place. There is a reason why you need to book early – this is a very sought after holiday home for your furry family members.”

Colm, Raumati, 12/5/2023

“Our dog had the best time at PetVilla’s. What an awesome place.”

Sally, Otaki, 11/5/2023

“Pet Villa cattery could not have been more helpful to me and my cat! I needed special medications given twice a day and also a trip to the vet while I was away. Nothing was too much trouble at all- I am very grateful to the team and highly recommend! Easy booking process online and an isolation facility available for sick / scardy cats! Thanks so much!”

Kerrie, Paekakariki, 10/5/2023

“We left our cat Ollie with them for a long stay – over 6 weeks when we went overseas in Nov/Dec 23. It’s difficult to leave your pets for such a long time in a cattery, but I felt so confident with Petvilla. During Ollie’s stay, they frequently emailed me giving me updates about him and how he was adjusting. They would also post photos on their social channels which I loved; I felt less guilty about leaving him to see him happy and playing, definitely a sense of relief. He came back home as a very happy and extra cuddly cat! I absolutely will leave him with them again!”

Varsha, Wellington, 21/3/2023

“Thank you so much Pet Villa for looking after our boy so well. He came home happy and relaxed, we are thrilled. I am sure he can’t wait to visit again.”

Peter, Otaki, 11/3/2023

“We really appreciated being able to leave our two cats at very short notice when we had to go out of town for a family illness. It was wonderful caring service when we were quite stressed. “

Marj, Paraparaumu, 10/2/2023

“My cat doesn’t like being in a cage and is generally scared of other cats but I know she is safe and cared for at Mary’s pet villa, she gets her own little enclosure with a petzcam so I can check in on her, they don’t make her go out into the common area if she doesn’t want to, they just leave that up to her and usually after a few days of getting used to things she settles in and braves leaving her room to socialize.”

Jamie, Otaki, 6/2/2023

“Great 1st time cattery experience for our very shy cat; she returned home and settled quickly like we had never been away! “

Tracy, Waikanae, 20/1/2023

“We’re very glad that we chose Mary’s Petvilla as a boarding place for our guinea pigs. It’s our first time to have the pigs board for a few weeks. But we’ve made the right decision, as there was an option to be able to see them via the small cam, and the team are excellent in communications, e.g. really prompt in responding to emails (apart from an amazing website that is so easy to use). The guinea pigs were really happy and healthy when we picked them up! We would definitely come back here if there’s a need for the boarding and would highly recommend Mary’s Petvilla to anyone who needs pet boarding. Your pets will definitely be well taken cared of!”

OM, Johnsonville, 16/1/2023

“Our cats had a wonderful stay at Mary’s PetVilla. After a 3-week stay, they came back happy and healthy. Will definitely book our cats with them again.”

Josphen, Upper Hutt, 14/1/2023

“Lovely clean and we’ll organized cattery. It was Betty’s first stay and she was so well looked after. Would highly recommend.”

Melanie, Wellington, 8/1/2023

“Great set up and lovely people.”

Justin, Lower Hutt, 6/1/2023

Andrea, Wellington, 21/12/2022

“Had my wee Kitty Girl stay for 3 weeks with total piece of mind that she was safe and happy. Mary is super accommodating and we will definitely be booking ALL the fur babies here again.”

Clint, Waikanae, 20/12/2022

“PetVilla is a very well run, clean and tranquil haven. My cats were very settled and content and I was surprised at how well they interacted with all the others in the communal area. So pleased I have found this happy “home from home” for Leo and Chester.”

Gill, Waikanae, 8/12/2022

“We love Mary and the great care she gives our cats highly recommend Catvilla.”

Sharon, Levin, 7/12/2022

“Very welcoming and Molly came home very happy. She doesn’t go into kennels very often so pleased she enjoyed her time and we will be happy to take her there again.”

Christine, Waikanae, 22/11/2022

“Mary has twice now been an attentive & caring host for our cats when we need to be away. Her cat villa has clean spacious accommodation, safe cat play areas, natural light & fresh country air, & we are very pleased to recommend her.”

Dana, Waikanae, 27/10/2022

“Our two Spoodles have vacationed at Mary’s Cat Villa a number of times over the years. The dogs are always happy to see Mary and are relaxed about going there. We are able to house them in the same area so they comfortable. The Kennel and Cattery are very well managed and organised. The dogs enjoy the interaction with other dogs and always come home to us as happy as ever. It’s wonderful to know that we have somewhere safe and caring to put our fur babies when we are heading away.”

Anna, Raumati Beach, 25/10/2022

“Very good customer care. Always reply promptly on emails and calls. I left my cat there for a first time and we could see our baby via camera and photos on Facebook and he looked happy.”

Karolina, Paraparaumu, 24/10/2022

“Highly recommend Petvilla! Amazing service and very accommodating. Great space for the animals and not too overwhelming for anxious dogs!”

Rosella, Waikanae, 16/10/2022

“We were very comfortable leaving our cat with Mary at Petvilla. The area where the cats are kept is spacious and clean, with a good area for them to play and socialise inside. When we came to pick up Jasper, it was a beautiful day and the doors to the cat accommodation were open so that fresh air was flowing through to the cages which I really liked. Mary also texted us on the second day to let us know Jasper had settled well which was really lovely, given it was our first time leaving him there.”

Jan, Tawa, 14/10/2022

“Fantastic cattery. It’s great knowing your pet is well looked after and being treated like he was one of her own cats.”

Tessa, Paparangi, 13/10/2022

Sharn, Kapiti, 6/10/2022

My dog loved his stay at Mary’s, we felt welcomed and secure leaving our boy here. The fact he had a wonderful cabin, walks on the farm and taken inside to sleep at night gave us such peace of mind.”

Kirsty, Upper Hutt, 22/8/2022

“Our cat is a timid rescue cat who had a rough early life. It was really reassuring when Mary let us know that she has settled in well and could go out and about in the shared space. The accommodation is warm and comfy and the shared space full of things to climb and survey the world. We are grateful to have such an excellent service in our community.”

Sue, Waikanae, 15/8/2022

“Our very fussy Foxy always has the best time – she gets excited from the moment we turn into Derham Road, knowing where she is going. We appreciate the updates we get when Molly is boarding and the lovely picture updates on their Facebook Page and Instagram. Booking her in is always nice and easy and communication back is also very quick. Highly recommend as somewhere trustworthy and caring to care for your pet when you are away.”

Stephanie, Paraparaumu, 9/8/2022

“Our dogs seemed to love their stays, i like it’s a smaller facility, as one of our dogs is a bit nervous. Love getting a picture of their stay”

Louise, Te Horo, 2/8/2022

Paul, Waikanae Beach, 18/7/2022

“Amazing service, made our very anxious cat comfortable for her stay”

Caitlin, Tawa, 9/7/2022

Leigh, Auckland, 6/7/2022

JT, Kapiti, 25/6/2002

“This was our first time leaving our boys at PetVilla. We had visited a number of other kennels and we found PetVilla more suited to our needs. We made the right decision. PetVilla is focused on caring for your fur family members. Mary and the team put you at ease and make sure you are kept up-to-date while they stay. Their focus is on quality of care. Highly recommend this fur family-friendly environment. Thank you for a great stay”

Colm, Raumati, 21/6/2022

Vanessa, Te Horo, 16/6/2022

“My wee Bengal Aria, has cone home happy and settled after her first ever stay in a cattery. Pet Villa took wonderful care of her and I would happily let her stay again.”

Christine, Otaki, 2/6/2022

“Betsy is a shy wee thing but settled in well thanks to Mary. She loved sleeping in her little igloo, didn’t want to come out! She was glad to be home though, and headed off to patrol her home range and check the place for changes. We’re very pleased with Betsy’s new hotel.”

Bruce, Te Horo Beach, 31/5/2022

Aleena, Paraparaumu 12/5/2022

” It was wonderful to be able to go on holiday and not worry about Rupert! We know he will always be well cared for with you!”

Sue, Waikanae, 12/4/2022

“We’ve used PetVilla multiple times over the last few years for our two boys Bentley and Xander. Mary and her team are always a pleasure to deal with, nothing seems to phase them. The facilities are clean and tidy, and the animals are stress-free. If you can’t make it out to Te Horo then they offer a pickup and drop off service which we have used a couple times, once where they dropped our boys off to another cattery (due to the length of stay/short notice in getting a booking) which saved us a couple of hours driving. If you want peace of mind for your cats or dogs then I can’t recommend Mary and her team enough.”

James, Wellington, 8/4/2022

“Beautiful facilities and my dog came home happy and relaxed, and clearly enjoyed her time and the personal attention from Mary. Highly recommend PetVilla, and it was a huge relief to know my dog was well cared for whilst I was away.”

Olivia, Wellington, 31/3/2022

“We absolutely love Petvilla its so comforting knowing Luna is in an environment thats fun and shes being giving the utmost care.”

Sarah, Otaki, 22/3/2022

“Our cat is a bit nervous but settling in very well at PetVilla – Mary is lovely and the whole operation is very professional and great to be able to log in and see our cat during her stay.”

Katrina, Otaki Beach, 2/3/2022

“This was our third visit to Petvilla and we were again delighted in the care and attention our cats received. Can not recommend Mary and her cattery highly enough. Our boys will be back again soon.”

Sharon, Levin, 16/2/2022

“The referral to Kapiti Pet Taxi to collect our cat that’s flight got cancelled last minute for the connecting flight Wellington to Timaru. They have been amazing to deal with and for sure will look after Sofie the cat well tonight.”

Hamilton Pet Transport, Hamilton, 14/2/2022

“We are so very happy that we found Pet Villa. Another great stay for our boy Hercules. It is lovely to get updates and photos on how Herc is enjoying his stay. He always comes home looking nice and relaxed. Keep up the great work Mary we really appreciate it. Would highly recommend Pet Villa to anyone”

Anette, Paraparaumu, 13/2/2022

“Easy booking and great communication. My cat can be a bit grumpy but settled in so well. Really appreciated the update on him too. Definitely recommends Marys and will be using again.”

Annette, Te Horo, 10/2/2022

“Due to my cat being hit by a car before we were due to go away. I needed special care for my cat while he recovered & needed to be cage bound. Mary’s we’re able to pick him up from vets, administer his medication, and look after him. Was really impressed by the service.”

Puhi, Otaki, 8/2/2022

“So hugely grateful to PetVilla for making room for my fur baby during the busy summer period and for going the extra mile with the pick up/drop off service which was a life-saver given I don’t own a car! My kitty returned home happy & healthy and had obviously been very well taken care of. Thanks so much!”

Tamarind, Wellington, 12/1/2022

“My cats always look relaxed when I pick them up and in good condition. Mary and staff are kind and caring. Mary’s calm character is reflected in the feel in the cattery. I have no hesitation in recommending PetVilla to anyone who is looking for a new place to try.”

Megan, Paremata, 7/1/2022

“PetVilla took great care of our cat and was very accommodating with us as our dates kept changing. Facilities were excellent and even had the option to have camera set up to check in on our cat. Would highly recommend their services.”

Edward, Waikanae, 6/12/2021

“Possum was looked after beautifully and I was extra delighted to receive a photo of hr and up to date report a few days after we dropped her off. She came back very content even though she is old and it was her first time in a cattery.”

Bronwyn, Otaki, 20/11/2021

“PetVilla was recommended by a friend and was a great temporary home to leave our young cat, Pascal, on his first stay away from home. Mary was wonderful to deal with and updated us during Pascal’s stay on how he was settling in. Each cat has their own private area, plus a large communal area if they are happy to socialise. More than happy to recommend, will return.”

Neil, Waikanae Beach, 17/11/2021

“I thoroughly recommend PetVilla. I have bordered my dog Baxter there on many occasions and he is always excited when I take him there – good feeling for me as the owner! “

Neil, Waikanae, 5/11/2021

“I must say with our 10 month old pups, Holly and Ruby, we initially could not have imagined leaving them. However we took the opportunity to visit and meet Mary and were very impressed. So a weekend finally come when our little girls would go to PetVilla. We truely could not have been happier with the loving care our pups got. Mary provided updates and even a photo of our girls. We were extremely satisfied with the service and care and will not hesitate to have our pups stay again. “

Alison, Kapiti, 2/11/2021

“We like taking our pets, to PetVilla. Mary and the team take really good care of our dog and cat.”

Daniel, Otaki, 26/10/2021

“We picked up two happy guinea pigs after a weeks stay at Pet Villa. Very professional and friendly to deal with.”

Phil, Waikanae, 18/10/2021

“Our fluffy girl was so happy at PetVilla. Couldn’t have hoped for better!”

Anna, Waikanae, 13/10/2021

“Bailey had another lovely stay with you. I was a bit worried about the contactless drop off on a rainy day but I shouldn’t have. It worked perfectly and Bailey was very happy with it all. She had a great time playing with the other dogs, and was very well cared for. Thank you! It means a lot to me to know that Bailey is so happy to come to you and that you take such good care of her.”

Beth, Waikanae, 9/10/2021

“Mary was very friendly and welcoming to our 5 month old pup Alfie, who had his first stay away from home at Pet Villas. Communication was excellent and Alfie has returned home happy and healthy, and a little tired from his exciting adventures.”

Sarah, Raumati Beach, 8/10/2021

“Warm care for your cat, so very relaxed on return home”

Annabel, Waikanae, 8/10/2021

“Friendly and welcoming even though following Level 2 H&S. Our dog was very well cared for and we appreciated the updates with photos showing what he was up to while we were away.”

Sara, Waikanae, 5/10/2021

“Such a great service, it is obvious that Mary cares deeply about animals and was more than happy to leave my rabbit with her for 3 weeks. It was a first for both me and my rabbit and he came home the same happy and healthy bun as when I dropped him off”

Katherine, Wellington, 31/7/2021

“We are so happy with Pet Villa! Our little boy came home very tired and very happy. It is obvious Mary is a real animal lover and looks after your pets as if they are her own! Wouldn’t go anywhere else!”

Fiona, Paraparaumu, 29/7/2021

“George and Daisy had a fabulous time at Mary’s, it’s always great to know that our pets are so well looked after when we go away.”

Peter, Otaki, 24/7/2021

“She met with us and showed us around her very well set up accommodation for Bella. Everything was clean and an abundance of toys and equipment even down to the same eco-friendly pine pellet litter. Bella had just had an operation and needed recuperation and TLC while we moved. She couldnt have been more helpful. Bella spent 13 days and on the occasions I was able to visit she looked perkier and perkier. She has been back with us in her new home and is seeing well and was soon demanding cuddles and play. So obviously well looked after. I cannot recommend Mary highly enough. Friendly and caring and knowledgeable.”

Rosie, Te Horo, 22/7/2021

“Stella seems to have had a great time. Mary was very friendly and even sent a photo of her for us to see. A lovely touch. We found the whole process of leaving our baby less stressful with the care taken with Stella on drop off and return. We even got told what Stella got up to while she was there “

Penny, Manakau, 21/7/2021

“This was our Rosie’s first stay away from people well known to her. I felt safe and happy handing her over to Mary, but wondered what she’d be like when we got her home. I didn’t need to worry she was just herself, thrilled and really fussy to see me and then her grandad (normal behaviour), and was totally normal when we got home. I’m so much happier at the thought of leaving her for longer in August”

Margaret, Waikanae, 6/7/2021

“Bailey had her two days trial with Mary this weekend. I really liked the way Mary greeted her by getting down to Baileys level and interacting with her. Bailey then went off without a backward glance to me which is a first for her. She has come home full of the joys of life like she has just had a great weekend with friends. I was really pleased she did well. We will certainly be back.”

Beth, Waikanae, 5/7/2021

“Whenever our fur family stays at PetVilla we know that they are comfortable and very well looked after at. We try to book in as soon as we know we’ll be travelling; Mary emails us an image of each of our animals with an update, for which we are extremely grateful. Can’t recommend Mary highly enough!”

TJ, Paraparaumu, 30/6/2021

“Took great care of Basil, our son’s cute mini lop rabbit. Friendly staff confident with a new pet.”

Lynley, Lower Hutt, 20/6/2021

“This was our second visit to Petvilla and we were again delighted in the care and attention our cats received. Can not recommend Mary and her cattery highly enough. Our boys will be back again soon.”

Sharon, Levin, 17/6/2021

“Awesome communication leading up to & during our dogs stay. She was very loved. thanks team!”

Cheralee, Te Horo Beach, 16/6/2021

“Luna loved her stay at Pet Villa and we loved that Mary sent us photos and updates. Definitely would recommend Marys for your beloved fur babies when you can’t take them away with you.”

Sarah, Otaki, 19/5/2021

“Mary is so lovely to deal with! She emailed us to let us know that our dogs had settled in well and it was so nice not to be worrying about them! Will definitely be boarding our dogs with her again!”

Sue, Waikanae, 18/5/2021

“Fantastic place to leave your pet. My dog was on trial and I was so happy when I get back my dog, he looked obviously well cared off. I like the place very nice to leave you pet when you are on a holiday. Mary your beautiful smile is remarkable that you are friendly to both the owner and the pet.”

Teresa, Waikanae, 29/4/2021

“Great service and our kitty was super relaxed when we arrived to pick her up. Couldn’t recommend enough”

Nikau, Wainuiomata, 5/4/2021

“Such amazing service from Mary and the team! Our first experience with a cattery and we will definitely be returning”

Courtney, Lower Hutt, 5/4/2021

“We had great service at PetVilla. They were so helpful and understanding when one of cats escaped before their shuttle pick up and came back later. They sent text messages letting us know how our cats were doing during the stay. Easy and prompt communication and billing. Will definitely use them again. Thanks!”

Charlotte, Khandallah, 21/3/2021

“It is great that the 2 cats & our little dog can go to the same place. makes our life so much easier. Mary is wonderful & caring. would recommend this animal accommodation to anyone.”

Mary, Waikanae, 19/3/2021

“Fabulous place – very friendly and felt completely comfortable leaving my puppy for the first weekend at a kennel. Would highly recommend!”

Sarah, Paraparaumu, 17/3/2021

“Pet villa is the only kennel that our little Beau loved and was stress free. Mary showed me around and explained where the dogs stay during the day and night and was very particular regarding Beaus needs and even sent a photo of Beau with an update on how he was doing while we were away. It certainly eased any worries I had about him and was so unexpected. This is the first time Beau was so relaxed and happy and full of energy when he got home and hadn’t lost any weight in a kennel. I will recommend Petvilla to anyone .”

Maree, Raumati Beach, 9/3/2021

“Great place to leave your pets. Very helpful too.”

Chris, Waikanae, 6/3/2021

“Cannot fault the service with Mary and they are very committed to the pets having a happy visit. Seemed a lot to do when initially registering but absolutely worth it. First time for us and my pets have never been so relaxed when they got home. Will be our new go-to pet hotel”

Katie, Otaki Beach, 23/2/2021

“Mary is great, very friendly and professional.”

Andrew, Hautere, 23/2/2021

“Mocha likes her second home. Came home happy & purring”

Dee, Otaki Beach, 16/2/2021

“We have an old needy cat and are very reluctant to leave him in a cattery. However since discovering PetVilla this has all changed. Now we don’t hesitate to leave him with Mary knowing he will get all the care and attention he needs. We’re quiet sure he actually loves his holidays there !”

Sarah, Porirua, 9/2/2021

“Benji had a great time at Petvilla, was well cared for and came home a happy boy.”

Elsie, Waikanae, 7/2/2021

Mary provided a wonderful environment for our precious cats for the past week. Mary was friendly, accommodating and very professional throughout the booking process. I would highly recommend the villas for a home away from home experience and will be returning when we next have the opportunity for an extended break. Special mention must go to the email update and photos sent of our girls when we were away. It is that wonderful extra care that makes Pet Villa just that little bit special.”

Kaye, Te Horo, 20/1/2020

“Fantastic place to take your pets and know they will be looked after while you are away!”

Jay, Poruia, 14/1/2020

“Took great care of our cat, carrot. Great accommodation, friendly owners and good comms. We will aim to use them again.”

Peter, Plimmerton, 11/1/2020

“Absolutely amazing. Took fantastic care of our beautiful bunny ‘snow’. Very accommodating with the loss of Snow’s sister and Snow’s injuries just 2 weeks before his 2 week stay. I felt his care was exceptional. Thank you so much for taking such care with him.”

Josie, Raumati, 9/1/2021

“We drive an hour with our cat before going away so that he can stay at Mary’s, that should tell you how great we think her service is. We would not use another Cattery.”

Kristy, Grenada Village, 9/1/2021

“Would also like to add that Mary now takes care of our two dogs along with the cat. I like the fact that it is a small, personal kennel.  Wookiee our little Pekingese has a heart condition and I feel reassured that Wookiee is with Mary. In my book  Pet Villa is gold. Thanks heaps for your work. First and foremost, if I could I would give 20 stars to Mary and her Cattery. I have used the services prior, and when she told me she was returning to the USA I was gutted as I am fussy where our cat goes. But then Mary and her husband returned and they reopened the Cattery. In my book you cannot get a more dedicated, experienced, and kind person than Mary who is very experienced with cats. Mary has animal qualifications from the USA including Pet CPR. Around 1 month ago our Burmese cat Nala became very sick while we were away, Mary did not waste time she immediately took Nala to the Otaki emergency vets, Mary stayed with Nala, phoned us, and messaged us. In my book this Cattery is a first class place. On a positive note Nala has made a full recovery from a kidney infection.”

Adrienne, Paraparaumu, 7/1/2021

“Love the large cots and the fact that kitties are allowed to roam and play all day rather than being stuck in their cots. On top of that, Mary is a really lovely person who genuinely adores cats.”

Nina, Wellington, 6/1/2021

“Mary does such a wonderful job of caring for our pets. The cattery is always immaculate and smells clean and fresh. The cats are all relaxed and happy and she has created a lovely space for them to enjoy. Cat villas are spacious and comfortable. I would never even consider taking my animals elsewhere.”

Andie, Porirua, 4/1/2021

“I had my two Pugs stay with Mary and her team on their beautiful property. I received updates on how my girls were doing and saw some photos of them on Facebook. After 13 days of boarding, I eagerly went to pick them up because I had missed them so very much and fully expected to be overwhelmed by their excitement to see us. They were not. They sort of ran over, tails wagging but weren’t overly excited or even seem to realise that they hadn’t seen us for so long. This in a strange way makes me feel comfortable and happy that my girls were so comfortable and so well taken care of that they didn’t seem to miss us, which is actually ideal. No one wants their pets stressed out and miserable while they go on holiday. This wonderful place is like a vacation for your pets. They came back rested, relaxed and were so calm in the car on the way home. I will never let my dogs go anywhere else. Thank you for the love and care you put into your business. Lots of licks and cuddles from Pixie and Phoebe”

Kirsten, Paraparaumu, 16/12/2020

“Petvilla had our cat in their care for four and a half months while we were overseas. When we got him back he was happy and healthy, and he settled back in our my home immediately – like he had never been gone. I would be very happy to send him back to Mary’s Petvilla if we are away from home again.”

Tony, Otaki Beach, 3/12/2020

“Absolutely love having this as a place to leave our dog when we travel. Mary is caring, thoughtful (always sends an update as to how he is doing) and the place always looks clean and tidy. Our boy always comes home calm and settled which is great. This is by far the best kennels I have found on the Kāpiti Coast. Would highly recommend.”

Becoming Healthy, Paraparaumu, 25/11/2020

“We are very grateful for the amazing care our cat received at Pet Villa. Mary was wonderful and our cat was very happy and well looked after. Thank you very much.”

Catherina, Waikanae, 19/11/2020

“Our little gremlin always likes going to “see Mary” and is a happy girl when she gets home again too. Great to get texts to say how she’s getting on during her stay too, as it was our dog’s first big holiday. Thanks Mary and team!”

Amy, Paraparaumu, 11/11/2020

“Great service, have provided pictures and little summary half way through his stay. When picked up was great hearing how he had taken to his stay as can be quite attention seeking. Would highly recommend to others looking for accommodation for their dog in Kapiti as have been to others and has been the most positive experience in dog stays”

Rebecca, Raumati South, 29/10/2020

“Mary was very welcoming and calming (I’m always more upset than the cat!). She sent a photo of Nerys to let me know she had settled in and responded quickly to any emails I sent. Nerys was well and happy when I picked her up (she was in for 10 days) and seemed to have coped just fine.”

Tee Ess, Otaki, 28/10/2020

“Highly recommend”

Nadene, Raumati South, 28/10/2020

“My two girls came from Mary’s rescue arm The Forgotten Feline Foundation so of course they were going to stay at her cattery while I was away. My girls are shy wee things but I was told they settled well and made friends with other boarders. They settled perfectly when they came home. I have no qualms about rebooking at this idyllic cattery.”

Fenella, Raumati Beach, 27/10/2020

“We really appreciate how well Cooper is looked after at the cattery and the condition he is when we pick him up. Also appreciated is the information as to how he is settling in. Keep up the good work. Our only concern is that he may get to prefer the cattery to life at home!”

Keith, Waikanae, 24/10/2020

“Mary took very good care of my two dogs. Mary kept me updated about their stay, posted pics on Facebook and was very sweet and caring towards my scared rescue dog.”

Carolyn, Wellington, 21/10/2020

“It is a huge relief to know that our cat Mindy is in good hands. We are always very happy with the service that Mary provides at Petvilla Cattery. Mindy has been back several times.”

Julie, Waikanae, 17/10/2020

“Our cat has stayed three times for extended periods. In other cattery she had returned quite unsettled. At Mary’s she returns with a glowing coat, calm and settled demeanor, looking healthy.”

Anne, Wellington, 13/10/2020

“Our furry girls love staying with Mary. They always appear relaxed and happy when we collect them. I’d thoroughly recommend the cattery and Mary’s care. Easy booking system, too.”

Rachel, Waikanae, 19/9/2020

“Thank you PetVilla. Mocha was very well looked after.”

Dee, Otaki Beach, 16/9/2020

“Great, welcoming, feel confident that medication is given as directed.. will have no hesitation in using Petvilla again. Our elderly cat became unwell on her last visit to Mary’s. Mary rang us straight away, this reinforces my opinion of Mary and her commitment to the animals In her care.”

Eileen, Te Horo, 10/9/2020

“Great service and Mary was more than happy to provide updates on Alfie’s wellbeing while he was staying.”

James, Paraparaumu, 7/9/2020

“Barney and Cassidy, my Lowchen cross and Cavalier King Charles dogs spent 8 days with Mary in August 2020. Barney is an anxious, shy boy, and I was a wee bit concerned about leaving him, but I shouldn’t have worried. He was very happy at Mary’s, and Mary sent me regular photos showing me how happy he and Cassidy were. Their accommodation was clean and comfortable, they had lots of walks and I was very happy with the entire experience. I will certainly book them in with Mary again.”

Vicky, Levin, 22/8/2020

“Our dogs Harry and Lily recently boarded at PetVilla. It was their first time boarding but they had a great time and came home well cared for (and exhausted from playing!). Would definitely recommend and use Mary’s again (we already have future bookings).”

Vanessa, Paraparaumu Beach, 13/8/2020

“My fur baby Lizzy experienced her first stay in a cattery ever with Mary. What an exceptional experience.  Lizzy was so content and well looked after. She was still looking for her friends once back home.  I definitely recommend PetVilla to anyone who loves their family member as much as I.   You will not regret the decision, and knowing your pet is so well taken care of is priceless. “

Vanessa, Otaki Beach, 7/8/2020

“This was our first time using PetVilla Cattery & Kennel and we could not speak more highly of the service that was provided to not only us but our cat. Mary was accommodating at the very short notice that we were able to give her, and even sent us a photo while we were away to show us that our cat was fine and having a great time with the other cats. Would highly recommend PetVilla Cattery & Kennel to other pet owners.”

Renee, Otaki, 6/8/2020

“Our two cats recently spent 3 nights at PetVilla. They were well cared for and seemed happy and comfortable upon collection. Service was very friendly, informative and Mary’s communication to us before and during their stay was great!”

Loren, Waikanae, 4/8/2020

“Had never taken my cat to a cattery before and was quite worried. However Mary is awesome and I could tell my cat was well looked after, would totally recommend to everyone!! Next time I’m gonna book the room with the camera for sure!! We will be back 100% , recommend to all! Once home my cat had settled in after about 2 hours. So I was super happy all round.”

Debbie, Waikanae, 30/7/2020

Catvilla is a very well organized operation. Their booking technology is first rate. We also enjoyed using the PetziCam to see what our little girl was up to. The amenities are clean and tidy and Mary herself is very sweet and caring about her guests. We will no doubt use  Catvilla again.”

David, Paraparaumu Beach, 20/7/2020

“Service: warm, welcoming, and professional. I appreciated the continuity of service, from online booking to follow up after I took my pet home. Cost: affordable, and I felt like I got more for my money than I expected. Location and grounds: Easy to find, stunning, built for purpose, clean, safe, tidy, and inviting. Would I use again? Yes. Would I recommend to others? Yes. Thank you PetVilla.”

Bea, Porirua, 18/7/2020

“It was so great having Misty and Riley stay at Pet Villa while we were away. Mary kept us updated on how Misty and Riley were settling in and even took pics to share. We won’t hesitate to book our furbabies in with Pet Villa during our next vacation.”

Tarryn, Te Horo, 14/7/2020

We were really pleased with how happy and settled our dog Hobbes was when he came home from PetVilla. The facilities and people there are really nice and Hobbes seemed to have a great time, enjoying he walks and company of the other small dogs. Our whole family felt comfortable leaving him there!”

Sonia, Waikanae, 13/7/2020

“Awesome host, thank you Mary!”

Francois. Lower Hutt, 8/7/2020

“Our 3 cats (Gary, Myrtle, and Noa) loved their time with Mary and came home even better than they had left. Mary is obviously a real animal lover and clearly takes joy and pride in her business. Her efforts in innovation (i.e. the Petzicam) are appreciated, and I loved that she took the time to email me updates and post photos on Facebook. Top-notch service”

Mikayla, Porirua, 6/7/2020

“Harry loves going to stay with Mary, and if Harry is happy then so am I. He gets the best treatment and attention and is always in great condition when I pick him up.”

Anne, Waikanae, 23/6/2020

“Absolutely delighted with the care and attention our kitty received here.”

Shaz, Kapiti, 23/6/2020

“Mary is a wonderful dedicated carer, our Chilli was so very well looked after, I would definitely recommend PetVilla, This message comes from a cat mum that doesn’t leave her baby with anyone.”

Daxa, Wellington, 23/6/2020

“My two large dogs have well looked after and safe at Petvilla. I had visited many other boarding kennels before choosing Mary’s. The kind caring atmosphere helped my anxiety about leaving our fur babies in someone else’s hands. Thank you to the team at Petvillas! Highly recommend.”

Jac, Waikanae Beach, 9/6/2020

“Excellent, I mean the thought of even driving Kasia out to CatVilla was stressful for me let Kasia, however, the pick up and return service was worthwhile for me, made it less stressful for me, not sure about Kasia! It was great to have updates on Kasia every now and then. Highly recommend CatVilla Cattery to family, friends and their pets.”

Aniela, Wellington, 5/6/2020

“Mary was very friendly and helpful and Mudgie came home very relaxed. Will definitely use CatVilla again.”

John, Te Horo Beach, 1/6/2020

“Wow I’m amazed at the amount goes into looking after my cat moochie he was happy when came home, was his first time at cattery and he did so well thank you for caring for our baby boy moochie diffently 100 gold star and really good you can watch him live on camera was relife knowing what he’s up to.”

Matt, Paraparaumu, 26/5/2020

“My two cats went into Mary’s cattery for 4 days while we moved house. They had never been into one before and they were very well looked after and settled in fine again at home.”

Margaret, Levin, 7/5/2020

“We’ve had both our pets (Bunny and Mini-Schnauzer) stay with Mary and I can absolutely recommend her. Part of our planning before going away is checking whether Mary has space for our pets. By far our first choice for looking after our fluffy family members.”

Steven, Waikanae, 28/4/2020

You took care of Wiggle, our grandchildrens precious rabbit. Their dog, Scotty, came for a sleep over recently too. So impressed with the love and care they were given. We know, when lockdown is over, their pets will be safe and sound with you while the family visits us.”

Marianne, Waikanae, 7/4/2020

“The cattery suited Middy really well. Great customer service, with Middy being well catered to. Will definitely use again. Highly recommended and would highly recommend to other people.”

“We love knowing that our fur baby is safe and well cared for. Would highly recommend Mary. Love the piece of mind while we are away.”

Rachel, Otaki, 10/3/2020

“Our wee Cavoodle Dharni loves going to Marys. Mary is always so excited to see her and Dharni responds to this being a real people person. The kennels are clean and spacious and they are in a great country location. We feel we can really trust a Mary to look after our precious girl. We strongly recommend Marys PetVilla.”

Nigel, Te Horo, 8/3/2020

“Thank you Mary for providing a peaceful calm setting for our dear Piper who loves her own space as well as an area to move around . We noticed she wasnt keen on coming home! We wouldnt hesitate in recommending Mary to other pet owners.”

Robyn, Levin, 20/2/2020

“Third time my two have stayed at Mary’s new location in the last seven months – once for 10 days and twice for the weekends. They settled in very quickly this last time. Mary is lovely, and her attention to detail is amazing – all of their belongings came back neatly labelled, and they were healthy and happy too. Can definitely recommend”

Ohtheirony, Porirua, 17/2/2020

“This was our cats first stay in a cattery and we were very concerned as to how he would cope – and his parents for that matter! I visited several catteries before seeing Pet Villa and what I really liked is that the cats have lots of room to play and many fun toys, with access to a secure outdoor area. Their sleeping area is also a good size and there are petcams to allow you to see how they are getting on which is brilliant. Mary is very considerate and you can tell goes to a lot of trouble to ensure pets in her care are well looked after and I felt that all interactions were very professional. Mary sent us emails and photos over our cats stay and answered my questions really promptly. Mary has created a great environment which I knew our cat would enjoy and be stimulated.”

Marianne, Te Horo Beach, 11/2/2020

“We were away for 6 weeks, Mary & team did a fantastic job of caring for our precious two yr old boy, sending us updates and photos whilst we were overseas giving us peace of mind. We live about an hour away and used their convenient pick up and drop home service. This was our pets first stay away from home and I would not hesitate to use PetVilla Cattery in the future, they are a pleasure to deal with, our precious boy came back to us very relaxed and healthy, a testament to the love and care provided to him in our absence.”

Wayne, Upper Hutt, 01/02/2020

“Highly recommended- Mary is fabulous, kind, caring and hands on with not only the cats but the dogs too. She is also super organized and we found the catery and kennels were clean and purrfect. Our animals were always relaxed and happy there. Five stars from us”

Mandy, Johnsonville, 27/1/2020

“We are really pleased with the love and care Mary gave to our cat, he was healthy and very relaxed when we picked him up! Such a wonderful environment for him to have spent six weeks, we couldn’t be happier and we highly recommend! Thanks so much Mary just fantastic!”

Patti, Levin, 24/1/2020

“We totally recommend Pet Villas, Mary is so lovely and friendly and our two dogs had a wonderful stay. See you again soon”

Matthew, Otaki, 17/1/2020

“Thanks heaps Mary for taking such good care of Prince I wasn’t sure he was going to come home with me.”

Hiria, Wellington, 12/1/2020

“Highly recommend Petvilla! This is the 2nd stay for our cats and we know they are loved and looked after.”

Tammy, Waikanae, 8/1/2020

“It was great to receive an update on how our cat had settled in and being able to see photos via Facebook. Thanks for taking such great care, it gave such peace of mind whilst we were away.”

Shae, Wellington, 31/12/2019

Mary has taken the very best care of our two much-loved cats for two stays now. Mary is very professional, friendly, willing to help and loves animals. So good to know our purry-furries are in safe and caring hands. I have given Catvilla 5 very well deserved stars.”

Corona, Paraparaumu Beach, 9/12/2019

“Really happy with the communication whilst our two cats were in Mary’s Care — highly recommend this cattery — the care and experience of using this cattery goes above and beyond anything we have experienced elsewhere — Mary thinks of not just the pets in her care but the pet owners as well”

Christine, Te Horo, 8/12/2019

” Cat Villas is super-clean, modern and well presented. I felt really confident leaving my dear old cat Fluffy there for a few days and it was obvious when I picked her up that she was happy and well cared-for. The website and booking system are excellent and Mary is super-helpful, even sent me a message to let me know Fluffy was doing well. I will definitely be using Mary’s place again.”

Anna, Otaki, 27/11/2019

“A very tidy, efficiently run cattery/kennel. Mary wants to understand each animal’s preferences and gives them her time. My cat has been twice and come home after 10 days more sociable with other cats so that’s a bonus!”

Donella, Te Horo Beach, 18/11/2019

“Mary is a rare gem of a person when it comes to looking after cats. My very shy 17-year-old cat with a thyroid condition was given the attention she needed, and I was given updates and answers to my questions by text while on holiday.”

Liz, Waikanae, 17/11/2019

“Wonderful experience. Mary is so knowledgeable and my cats came home so relaxed! like they had been on a holiday too.”

Bex, Levin, 29/10/2019

“As Cato was to be a long stay resident, despite having a great feeling about Pet Villa, I was naturally slightly apprehensive as were to be out of the country for the duration of his stay. However, his care was exemplary and being able to peek in on him via the Petzicam also showed that he was content and settled. Mary rose wonderfully to the health challenges Cato decided to present her with and her veterinary experience meant that she was able to manage calmly and to inform and reassure me in a professional manner. The ultimate test though is how Cato behaves when he comes home and he came back in as though he hadn’t been away. I am slightly nervous about singing Mary’s praises too highly because it may mean that her popularity will prevent us from being able to get in whenever we need to but, this really is the gold standard of catteries.”

Brenda, Waikanae Beach, 23/10/2019

“My cats were very well looked after and I will be booking with Mary for their next holiday!”

Janine, Te Horo 7/10/19

“Can’t recommend highly enough! My cats were so happy and relaxed throughout their stay. Mary was lovely, understanding and so helpful…Will definitely book with you first if I need a cattery again”

Mia, Levin, 2/10/2019

“Very happy with the care shown. When away recently had updates on how my cat was doing. This set my mind at rest. Pick up and drop off service is great. I would recommend Petvilla and will be happy to have them take care of my pet in the future.”

Trevor, Waikanae, 27/9/19

“Highly recommend Mary and the cattery. Rosie was well looked after during her short stay (whilst we shifted house). Mary was very caring and Rosie was well looked after.”

Lilian, Otaki, 25/9/2019

“Professional business, modern clean facilities and friendly staff in lovely location. My cat looked happy when I picked him up. Already booked for next stay”

Paula, Waikanae Beach, 17/9/2019

“Awesome facilities, my dog is very excited when he gets dropped off there. Lots of attention given and walks provided daily.”

Kelsey, Paekakariki, 16/9/2019

“It was Coopers first stay at Petvilla and I could not have asked that he be better looked after especially as he had just been diagnosed with kidney disease. Such a lovely environment, very clean and I would highly recommend. PetVilla will be our first choice when Cooper needs future boarding.”

Leanne, Lower Hutt, 15/9/2019

“We use Cat Villa regularly and could not fault them! They always take such great care of our fur babies and we would not go elsewhere now.”

Stephanie, Auckland, 11/9/2019

“Highly recommended, had our pup transported from Palmerston North to Masterton. Fast replies and very accommodating, overall very friendly. Would definitely book again.”

Victoria, Masterton, 10/9/2019

“Two happy boys after a short stay with Mary and they can’t wait to go back again!”

Margaret, Paraparaumu, 5/9/2019

“Best ever cat boarding facility,..Our cat Burmese kitty became really sick with her renal disease Mary went above and beyond by taking Nala to the vet she was in contact with us the whole time, we came home immediately. Nala recovered as she is a fairly young cat. So glad Mary is taking small dogs now. To sum up I wouldn’t take our animals anywhere else.”

Adrienne, Paraparaumu, 29/8/2019

“I just wanted to say the biggest “thank you” on the planet to you both for your wonderful efforts in getting our furr bubbas to Christchurch. My husband said they arrived in Christchurch, all well and happy.”

Andi, Johnsonville, 20/8/2019

“Great facilities and really lovely owners that clearly communicated with us. Our fur child was very happy at Catvilla, we’re happy to have a place he enjoys and feels safe”

Kim, Otaki, 19/8/2019

“This is our dogs second stay …we have used many different kennels, some great and some we would never return to. When Frankie comes home he is healthy, spritely and his usual stalkerish self. We get regular updates, photos and emails. Mary has a lovely connection to animals and I always say it’s as if he has been cared for in his own home environment, he loves the walks, the llamas… The kennels are awesome……. we feel very reassured he is in good hands.”

Pamela Curreen, Wellington, 14/9/2019

“Highly recommend Cat Villa. The cattery and condos are immaculately clean and spacious, with lots of things to play with and explore in a safe environment. Mary is very tuned in to cats in her care. She picked up immediately when my boy became distressed and didn’t settle. I had just moved house before their stay and had lots of work done, then needed to go overseas. It was just too much for him. Mary was brilliant in the way she handled my two babies and informed me of every step she took to settle them. It did not take long for my boy to settle and both were able to be flatmates again after a short time. My little girl went to explore and played and socialised with other cats too, which she never did before as she is normally shy and more anxious. When I picked them up they were both in excellent shape and relaxed and confident and settled in quickly at home.”

Frankie, Paraparaumu, 31/7/2019

“I can’t recommend PetVilla enough. There’s heaps for our furry friends to do, it’s spotlessly clean, and Albert, my cat, always comes home healthy and happy.”

Jill, Otaki, 23/7/2019

“Our dog Frankie had a lovely stay in the very capable hands of Mary. We would highly recommend and use PetVilla again.”

Sue, Wellington, 15/7/2019

“Mary is very friendly and professional lady that loves animals. The place is very clean and well managed, especially love the fact that they separate guinea pigs and cats to avoid them assault each other. Our piggies went back home happily with their stuff being stacked up very neatly. Would definitely stick with Mary every time when we’ll be away! Thank you!”

Say, Wellington, 1/7/2019

“PetVilla is one amazing cattery. Nala our 5 year old Burmese is very much at home with Mary. Mary updated us recently with a photo of Nala rolling on the floor of the cat condos, and she commented that Nala just loves the sun. Mary also went above and beyond back in February when Nala became ill with her renal disease, Mary took Nala to the local after hours vet, she phoned and texted regularly – we came home immediately. Nala recovered and is back to good health. Mary has a pet CPR certificate and many other feline certificate pertaining to cat well-being. Absolutely stoked to have found PetVilla.”

Adrienne, Paraparaumu, 21/6/2019

“Gillie loved staying with Mary at Petvilla, I was nervous about him boarding since hes so young. All fears allayed, he was so settled when we left & excited when we got back. Absolutely recommend Petvilla.”

Rachel, Paekakariki, 16/6/2019

“We left for Europe feeling very comfortable that our Giselle would be well cared for. Mary was brilliant. Giselle seemed very happy and Mary takes the time to ensure all pets are well cared for. Mary provided updates and photos via social media. We highly recommend CatVilla!”

Nadene, Raumati South, 9/6/2019

“Our two cats stayed at CatVilla for two blissful weeks. What more could you ask for in a nice peaceful rural setting. The facilities were clean and relaxing, it has an indoor/outdoor area for the cats to explore and watch life outside. Mary was very accommodating picking our boys up, and dropping them off at their next destination and sending us regular updates with pictures. Would definitely use again.”

James, Wellington, 1/6/2019

“We were delighted with the care Basil received at Catvilla. The cattery is modern, bright and roomy in a lovely rural setting. We really appreciated the communication, including a lovely photo, we received from Mary during Basil’s stay. We will certainly use the cattery again and really recommend it.”

Anne & Kevin, Paraparaumu, 18/5/2019

“The cat and dog villa’s are situated upon a quiet hill just inland from the Kapiti coast. Mary provides a caring and consistent service and communicates clearly and quickly. She was also able to help me out of a pickle with a dog sitter at the last minute and helped my dog recover from a stressful situation. I would definitely use the Petvilla again and recommend it to other dog owners.”

Tricia, Upper Hutt, 3/5/2019

“Always a pleasure when our darling cat, Audrey, stays at CatVilla. Peace of mind, personal attention and care, excellent communication — all good reasons to ensure our beloved fur-baby returns again and again.”

Simone, Waikanae, 29/4/2019

“Excellent communication, great facilities and so nice to get an update and photo of our cat.”

Lisa, Pukerua Bay, 26/4/2019

“Thank you for looking after Oscar and accommodating us out of hours, it was much appreciated. I highly recommend CatVilla 5 stars”

Kerry, Plimmerton, 25/4/2019

“Mary is great!!! Within the first few days of the stay, Mary had sent us an email (with pictures) letting us know how our cat was settling in. At the first sign of an issue Mary quickly got in contact and kept us up to date, and our minds at ease. The additional option of the camera was great for those of us with separation anxiety – hahaha. 10/10 would recommend.”

Sarah, Waikanae, 24/4/2019

“Our ten cats (please don’t judge :-)) stayed with Mary for three months whilst we renovated our home. We had complete peace of mind from the moment we dropped them off with Mary. So inviting is the accommodation, I myself wanted to stay with them in one of the condos, instead of a house under renovation! Our cats range in age from six months to fifteen years. Each with their own individual temperament, background and needs. Mary was completely unphased with the list of requirements I left her with. She had different diets and also medications to administer. All the while keeping us updated on how they were settling in. And I have to say this didn’t take long at all. Even our most shy cats quickly found their feet with Mary and felt comfortable enough to be themselves knowing that she was atuned to their needs. Mary is dedicated to the cats in her care and truly treats them as her own. Within a couple of “days” we were receiving updates on what she was doing with them. I was blown away by how she had got to know them and their idiosyncratic “needs” that up until them only we had been privy too. This is in light of many pet sitters we have had over the years who never managed this. In the words of our seven yea old “Mary is a cat whisperer”. And I couldn’t put it better myself. :-)”

Viktoria, Raumati South, 13/4/2019

“Very helpful. I felt very comfortable leaving my dog Milo with you and I knew she was being really well cared for. Thank you”

Liz, Paekakariki, 11/4/2019

“Trustworthy, kind, a beautiful setup and a genuine animal lover.”

Gina, Wellington, 10/4/2019

“I was happy with Minnies stay with Mary and the great service. Mary picked up Minnie and dropped her back home after our holidays Minnie was herself not shy or timid when she came home. would definitely send her to Mary again.”

Lorraine, Otaki, 10/4/2019

“We were very happy with your loving care of our precious Molly.”

Diana, Paraparaumu, 9/4/2019

Fantastic from start to finish. I was kept informed from day one of my bookingthrough to pick-up. While on holiday I was also kept up-to-date as to how my cat was getting on. Upon return again informed of the delivery time of my precious cat, thana report as to how things went during that period. One could not have expected more as the cost and service weretop-notch. A must for all pet owners known that their pets would be inexcellent and caring hands.”

Aniela, Wellington, 9/4/2019

“We were pretty nervous and our kittys were very nervous, but all went well and the camera was awesome”

Margaret, Porirua, 8/4/2019

“Very easy to book and to communicate with. Really loved the pick upand drop off service. Mary was friendly and caring.”

Vicki, Otaki, 5/4/2019

“Excellent service we were really happy especially with seeing pictures of Freddie settling in”

Kelly, Otaki, 4/4/2019

“Was so glad to hear that Mary now boards dogs as had heard a lot of great things about her cattery. Rocco seemed to enjoy his stay, was great to get an update on him from Mary and the little cabins are awesome. He would have loved the farm walks and cuddles! Will definitely bring him back again.”

Kelsey, Paekakariki, 4/4/2019

“Mary is the Pied Piper of Cats. They just love her. Fuzzy and Wuzzy did not want to come home with me!”

Margaret, Paraparaumu, 4/4/2019

“Excellent amenities and amazing hosts, thank you for providing such a unique experience for our cat, fully recommend Catvilla!”

Jane, Paraparaumu Beach, 3/4/2019

“Great service. Would highly recommend Cat Villa to others and my cats will be back for another stay”Willow loves staying at”

Vanessa, Te Horo, 2/4/2019

Willow loves staying here, we are always confident that she will receive the best care from someone who has an obvious love for animals.”

Pete & Deb, Otaki, 2/4/2019

“Very good.”

Liz, Waikanae, 2/4/2019

“Peggy O’Reilly was so well looked after and happy on pick up. Loved the cat area and seamless service from Mary thank you. Hoping to get a place for Peggy this year!”

Kim, Wellington, 2/4/2019

“Brilliant and caring”

Ian, Wellington, 2/4/2019

Stress free, it’s not easy to put your trust into someone else to care for your much lovedpets as you would. I always know he is being well looked after and Mary is right there to help with any changes or questions every time.”

Julianne, Paraparaumu, 1/4/2019

“I knew Rosie was in safe hands. Thank you!”

Tracey, Otaki Beach, 29/3/2019

“Mary took wonderful care of my three-year-old cat Lily. Individual accommodation is clean and spacious as is the shared area. Lily took advantage of the shared area to sleep as well as to play and spend time with some of the other cats. Quite amazing as she is never sociable with other cars at home. On her return home, she was in excellent shape and immediately took up all her old routines. I would recommend  ‘cat villa’ to any cat lover.”

Elizabeth, Otaki Beach, 22/3/2019

“Highly recommend Catvilla. Mary let me know when my boy had settled in as he is always a bit shy around strangers & posted photos on her facebook page which was a real highlight seeing how happy he was while I was away. I will definitely be using mary in the future, her set up was amazing too. Roomy cages & immaculately clean. Thank you, Mary, for taking care of my baby & I will look forward to seeing you next time we get a holiday.”

Kelly, Otaki Beach, 12/3/2019

“Firstly if I could I would give 20 stars to Mary and the Cattery. I have used Mary’s services prior, and when she told me she was returning to the USA I was gutted as I am fussy where our cat goes. But then Mary and her husband returned and they reopened the Cattery. In my book, you cannot get a more dedicated, experienced, and kind person than Mary who is very experienced with cats. Mary has animal qualifications from the USA including pet CPR. Around 1 month ago our Burmese cat Nala became very sick while we were away, Mary did not waste time she immediately took Nala to the Otaki emergency vets, Mary stayed with Nala, phoned us, and messaged us. In my book, this Cattery is a first class place. On a positive note, Nala has made a full recovery from a kidney infection.”

Adrianne, Paraparaumu, 11/3/2019

“Very happy and impressed with our wee dog Molly’s stay at CatVilla. Highly recommend for cats and dogs.”

Diana, Paraparaumu, 22/2/2019

“Thanks for again looking after Willow and making here stay a good one – it’s comforting to know she is such good care when she stays there! She has so much fun she is exhausted when she gets home”

Peter, Otaki, 19/27/2019

“The cattery is a calm and clean space and the cats spend lots of time in the shared space if that suits them, with lots of high spaces for their surveillance needs. Our cat was very well cared for and came home in excellent health. I recommend CatVilla unreservedly.”

Tania, Wellington, 22/1/2019

“If you need to board your cat you certainly can’t go wrong with CatVilla. My Harry spent two weeks with Mary. He came home very happy and settled which I was really delighted about. He is going back for another two weeks at the beginning of February. Mary is a lovely lady who obviously loves all the cats.”

Anne, Upper Hutt, 21/1/2019

“Our usually grumpy cat, Thunder, had an almost 2 month stay at CatVilla this summer. She reluctantly came home after having settled confidently in toher home away from home. We were very grateful for updates and photos from Mary and found her very quick to respond. Her care of Thunder was top notch. Thunder came home looking healthier than she has in ages. I highly recommend CatVilla to others.”

Anne-Marie, Seatoun, 20/1/2019

“Mary had a real challenge on her hands to settle our adventurous, independent Tasmin into her cattery.  And I’m pleased to say that Mary was the perfect person for the job! Mary loves and completely understands cats, she has so much patience for them.  We received lovely updates about how Tasmin was settling in and we were so pleased to see the photos of a relaxed happy Tasmin, chasing the resident Catnip mouse! Thank you, you provide a lovely clean, interesting environment for the cats, and Tasmin will certainly be coming to holiday again with you soon!”

Nicolette, Wellington, 18/1/2019

“We highly recommend Mary. The cattery was immaculate with a great indoor/outdoor area. The cages were a very generous size. Mary was easy to contact and looked after our elderly needy cat.”

Jolene, 14/1/2019, Porirua

“Thank you so much for looking after Niko.  He seemed to have a lovely time and looked so healthy and relaxed when we picked him up.  We think your cattery is lovely and the cats are in such good hands with you.”

Suzanne, Wellington, 14/1/2019

“Mary is excellent at caring for our fur babies, they are always happy and healthy when we pick them up. She is fantastic at sending updates on how they are doing. The cam hire service is a nice touch, the cattery very clean and the condos are spacious. We highly recommend this 5 Star Service.”

Lori, Porirua, 6/1/2019

“Second time round for Albert and again he was well looked after, beautiful pictures posted, and he came home fit, well and happy. A great place”

Jill, Otaki, 6/1/2019

“I was hesitant at first, however, it was the best decision I made. The service was excellent. Although Kasia was pleased to be back home I was delighted to here how Kasia engaged with Mary and the other felines. Definitely would recommend CatVilla to family and friends.”

Aniela, Wellington, 2/1/2019

“Mary is the most amazing animal caretaker. She walked my pups back in the states and she was THE best dog walker I have ever had. I lost her to the calling of New Zealand, but now you all can experience her kindness.”

Amy, San Leandro, CA, 20/4/2018

Many thanks for looking after Louie so well again. Absolutely thrilled that you are back and up and running again. Not only is it a great cattery it is extremely professional”

Marg, Otaki Beach, 1/12/2017

“Mary is such a lovely woman who truly cares for your animals while you are away. Olly loved his stay and will definitely be back. We have used the Cattery twice now and have been very happy both times. Highly recommend”

Chantelle, Lower Hutt, 6/11/2017

“Many many Thanks. Louie was so well looked after. You have a delightful cattery. I felt totally comfortable leaving my boy with you. I recommend you highly as your place is all about the cat”

Marg, Otaki Beach, 5/11/2017

“CatVilla is fantastic. Mary contacted us to let us know that our little monster was happy and even sent us photos. We will def use them again when we go away.”

Lisa, Raumati, 3/11/2017

“Our 2 babies were very well looked after, will def use again”

Kat, Paraparaumu, 1/11/2017

“Our kitten Willow loved her stay with you and it was great getting updates on how she was settling in…”

Debra, Otaki, 22/10/2017

“It was so relieving to know my little Sika was being loved and cared for while we were away. The facilities for the cats are clean and spacious! With plenty of areas to play! When I picked her up she was very happy! We will be more than happy for Sika to have more holidays at CatVilla.”

Shushaanah,Waikanae Beach, 14/10/2017

“Highly recommend CatVilla for your pet boarding needs. We boarded our rabbit with her. Nice setting for animals. Mary is very friendly and good at updating you how your pet is doing.”

Taukiri, Upper Hutt, 12/10/2017

“Thanks for having Ben stay at short notice over the school holidays. He seemed very content and happy to stay with you. We’ll be back again.”

Katie, Ngaio, 11/10/2017

“Lulu was so comfortable at Mary’s Catvilla that she almost seemed reluctant to leave when we called in to pick her up recently. Mary is a very caring and attentive host and the facilities are clean and well maintained. Highly recommended.”

Ema,  Paekakariki,  10/10/2017

“Thanks so much Mary for taking such good care of Mishca. It was such a relief that she was with someone as capable and caring as you when she became unwell and I really appreciated that you got her to the Vet smartly and kept me up to date. Your insight about Mish’s sight also helped me understand some recent behaviour If you want someone who is highly capable and caring with a top notch cattery then Catvilla is the place to take your furry friend for their next holiday”

Jordyn, Johnsonville, 06/10/2017

“The cattery is immaculate and exceptionally clean. The location is rural and such a lovely location but not too far from anywhere. Nala our Burmese cat was very happy and well looked after. If I could give 10 stars I would. I wish I could find a dog kennel with the same high standards as Mary. Go well.”

Adrienne, Paraparaumu, 25/9/2017

“Very happy with the way Mary looked after my two. A bit of a trek from where I live, but worth it.”

Pat,  Whitby, 5/9/2017

“Frankie and Coco our two Birman cats had a wonderful stay with CatVilla. I especially liked the email and photos of them looking relaxed and happy. Check in and check out was super easy to.”

Maureen, Waikanae, 3/9/2017

“Cat Villa is excellent. She’s knowledgeable about cats and their health and genuinely cares for all her clientele (both the cats and humans). I highly recommend her!”

Tom, Wellington, 23/8/2017

“Thank you so much Mary for taking great care of our kitten, Marley, over the last six days. The text and photo updates were much appreciated. Can’t recommend CatVilla enough – the spacious condos, Petzi treatcam, amazing set up for the cats and the safe and enclosed outdoor area. The most impressive cattery set up we’ve seen. We will only use CatVilla from now on.”

Pip, Porirua, 18/7/2017

“Mary did a fantastic job looking after our two cats Isabella and Turbo! The facilities were top notch, and service absolutely fantastic. Mary definitely made me feel more comfortable leaving my wee ones behind – Izzy is just a wee kitten and I’d never left my cats at a cattery before! very nice also to receive text updates to know how they are getting on! thank you again from Izzy, Turbo and I!!  We will definitely be back!”

Sophie, Johnsonville, 17/7/2017

“We left our cat George with Mary for a long weekend. It was the best experience we’ve had with a cattery. Not only did Mary help assist with settling George in after he made a mess of himself on route (he was nervous) but she kept us up to date with how he was getting on throughout our holiday. The facilities were clean, the condos were spacious & the outdoor enclosure was fantastic. We will 110% be back! Thank you again”

Alisa, Johnsonville, 17/7/2017

“Mary took very good care of our boy Harry! He is on medication & a special diet & he was totally taken care of. So so happy to have found Catvilla. We can leave him here with total confidence knowing he will be spoilt rotten.”

Maree, Waikanae Beach, 14/7/2017

“Thankyou so much Mary for taking such good care of our old boy Jonah …at 20 years of age we went away knowing that perhaps he may decide to not wake up at some stage. He’d been abit off his food and over time losing weight so we were delighted to see him so happy and comfortable at your place and even putting on half a kg . Also, the emails and photo were fantastic to receive while we were away. Definitely highly recommended.”

Cherie, Raumati South, 13/7/2017

“Thank you Mary, for taking such good care of Albert. He came home looking sleek and healthy, and surprisingly enough wasn’t interested in leaving your wonderful villa. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone wanting kind and loving care for their cat while they’re away. Thank you.”

Jill, Otaki, 5/6/2017

“Thank you for all the wonderful care and attention you gave to Sooty and Sweep during their extended stay! I really struggle to leave my animals with anyone and at last I have found Cat Villa I really love what Mary has created ( a clean interactive environment which allows cats the freedom of withdrawing or interacting inside or in an outside fenced area) and felt very confident leaving my cats with her. She gave me regular updates and photos and both Sooty and Sweep have returned in excellent health. This has not always been the case particularly my younger cat who is really shy and nervous and does not love the experience of catteries. We will definitely be using CatVilla again!”

Giles & Teresa, Paraparaumu 5/7/2017

“Mary took such good care of Stellar while we were away – even taking her for a vet visit when her eye needed attention and kept us up to date by text on how that went. We’ll definitely be back.”

Megan, Te Horo, 28/6/2017

“Thankyou for taking such good care of our cat Mary. We were lucky to find you.”

Marc, Waikanae, 24/6/2017

“Very happy with Mary. Will use again”

Karen, Te Horo, 23/6/2017

“My Cats Bootie and Shadow stayed at Mary’s CatVilla for a week while we moved house. This was the first time we had used Mary and in dropping off our cats we were very impressed with the standard of the facilities and the cleanliness. It was great to receive a text from Mary during the week to reassure us the cats were settling in well and were just fine.”

Lisa & Dan, Paraparaumu Beach, 9/6/2017

“I’m delighted with the accommodation at Catvilla and your care of Lily. Lily has always been timid around other cats and I was impressed to see that she was outside with a cat ‘friend’ when I arrived to pick her up and that she had been in the shared area every day. I was pleased that you fed her her usual diet too. A holiday for Lily as well as for me.”

Elizabeth, Otaki Beach, 31/5/2017

“Lovely caring environment for our two kitten’s.”

Debra, Otaki, 21/5/2017

“Great customer service, and great space for the cats to use!”

Becky, Paraparaumu Beach, 4/5/2017

“Fantastic care for our cat!”

Thomas, Johnsonville, 30/4/2017

“We recently had our three cats stay with Catvilla, and she provided a brilliant service. Each of our cats are very individual with different needs, and she catered for them all. She even sent us an update and photos by text to let us know how they were doing away from home, which we especially appreciated as 2 of them had never been in a cattery before. The Catvilla has lots of variety with toys, spaces to explore and climb, a sunny airy open area, and spacious ‘condos’. We would very happily recommend Mary’s Catvilla to anyone looking for a comfortable, caring, and healthy place for their cat(s) to stay! ;-)”

Dana, Waikanae, 29/4/2017

“Beautiful location, Mary is so friendly and we loved the option of the Petzicam, we were able to tune in and see Camilla wherever and whenever we wanted. Will definitely be using this service again.”

Mosalene, Khandallah, 29/4/2017

“Thank you for taking such good care of our cat Charlie for us. He looked so happy and healthy when we picked him up. Thanks also for the updates and photo you sent us, it was so reassuring to know how he was going without us. We will definitely be booking him in for our next holiday.”

Kristy, Grenada Village, 24/4/2017

“Thanks for looking after Ruby & Fox. Thanks for your extra efforts with Ruby”

Debra, Otaki, 17/4/2017

“At the end of March 2017 I had cause to find a Cattery for my cat Ziggy whilst I was away. I found Catvilla in Kapiti. Mary the owner was very welcoming to both me and Ziggy and the surroundings in which Ziggy stayed were very clean and tidy with plenty for Ziggy to keep him happy. Both Ziggy and I were happy with the services offered and I would not hesitate to use Mary’s Catvilla again.”

Linda, Whitby, 4/4/2017

“Thanks Mary, Tom Tom enjoyed his stay, reluctant at first but settled in well with your kindness and affection.”

Michael, Otaki, 24/3/2017

“Great service, Mary really cares for the cats under her care. Will use again and highly recommend. AAA+++”

Alan, Waikanae Beach, 16/2/2017

“We found Mary very friendly and the Cat Vila was new and clean and tidy. The other cats seem very happy and they had lots of room and outdoor area gave them fresh air but it was secure and safe. Zoe was very relaxed when we came to collect her after a week. Will use CatVilla again :)”

Andrea, Lower Hutt, 26/1/2017

“Merlin really enjoyed his stay with Mary over Christmas and is keen to stay again !!!, Highly Recommended”

Julian, Waikanae, 15/1/2017

Thank you, Mary for having Smudge to stay. Wonderful care, an excellent environment and professional service. We loved the holiday update with a photo! Would highly recommend Catvilla to all pet owners.

Jane, Paraparaumu Beach, 6/1/2017

Our cat Fiocco was well looked after, she was happy and had the chance to socialise with other friends and she was relaxed on the way home. The condo was nice and was well kept daily. Thanks Mary for clean her up as she had an “accident” on the way there. Mary also let us know that Fiocco was fine and we knew she is in good care. The petzi cam gave us the chance to watch her remotely. It was fun to have! I highly recommend CatVilla to other cat parents.”

Wai Ling, Lower Hutt, 6/1/2017
