“Above and Beyond!”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

We had a wonderful stay with Brent and Niki. The room was beautiful, the ensuite incredible and the hospitality was truly above and beyond anything we expected. While it is a bit of a walk from town, this results in a stunning view of the sounds from both your room and the sunny deck. Furthermore, they are more than happy to pick you up and return you to the ferry and even let us borrow their car when we needed it! Breakfast was beautiful as were the other meals they so generously invited us to join them for. They even hooked us up with a free day on a yacht of their friends which made the trip. Could not rate the stay more highly!!

Myself and family stayed here and we found it very comfortable. Hosts Nicki and Brent were great, very welcoming and accomadating.
Everything we needed including baby portacot etc were there. Clean, modern, and tastefully decorated.
Wonderful view of the Picton harbour.A reccomended place to stay if you are single, a couple or a family, a New Zealander or a traveling tourist.

Stayed there for one night. Very nice room in very good conditions, with a stunning view on Picton. The bath room was the most beautiful I have seen on my trip. Brent & Niki were very nice hosts. Excellent breakfast in the morning. Definitely an excellent place to stay in Picton. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay . We were made very welcome after a cold and wet bike ride from Nelson. A hot cup of tea ready after we settled in. Even let us borrow their vehicle to go into town for Dinner. excellent breakfast. Will be back - thanks Brent and Nikki for making us welcome in your home.

Thanks again for staying with us and we wish you a safe trip back home. Regards Nikki & Brent

We booked a last-minute train trip to Picton due to our west coast trip being cancelled due to the recent bad weather. From the first contact Nikki was friendly and welcoming and made me feel that i was making the right choice. We were treated like family members from the moment we arrived and Nikki and Brent were both fabulous to deal with and both very friendly and happy to chat. My little 5 year old Maddy made friends with Nikki very early on and Nikki even made time in her day to have a little tea-party with her and even Brent got roped in at one point. To me this made me realise how relaxed Maddy felt in this environment that she felt she had made a friend !! So much better than a sterile motel environment, We all felt so much at home. The Continental style breakfast in the morning was just marvellous. There was never any time when we felt out of place or uncomfortable and the property is beautiful. We would most certainly stay here again !

Sounds Vista was the perfect place to stay for our 3-night getaway to beautiful Picton. Nikki and Brent were extremely welcoming and it wasn't long before we felt right at home. The Bed & Breakfast catered well for our large group, with just the right mix of bedrooms and ensuites. The great location of Sounds Vista allowed the boys to make the most of the fishing opportunities while the girls meandered into town for shopping before settling on the deck to enjoy the afternoon sunshine and beautiful view. The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortable and had everything we could wish for, including SkySport, a collection of DVDs and even Guitar Hero. We highly recommend Sounds Vista to anyone planning a trip to or through Picton. Thanks so much Brent & Nikki, we look forward to coming back soon!

After a scenic drive up the eastcoast of New Zealand, 'Sounds Vista' in Picton is the perfect location to relax and unwind. The warm welcome by Nikki and Brent on our arrival at 'Sounds Vista' was very pleasant. The room was comfortably spacious and modern with a view to die for. The serene town centre is located on the waterfront and is only a few minutes by car (15minute walk). The cafes and shops provide a lovely selection of local crafts and friendly hospitality. We enjoyed a walk out to 'The Snout' a good 4 hour workout with great views as we walked amoungst the fresh green bush and bays of Marlbrough Sounds. We returned back to 'Sounds Vista' for a much appreciated cuppa and chat, as we looked out over Picton from the spacious sunny deck and reflected on our awesome day. Before heading to a local restraunt for dinner, we watched the 'Interislander' quietly dock amongst the twinkling night lights of the port and marina. We liked the fact that this Bed and Breakfast is spacious, relaxed, friendly and did I mention the views to die for. We didn't want to leave so soon and plan to have another little get away asap to 'Sounds Vista', our newly found oasis.

Room Tip: Book in advance and you won't be disappointed. All of the rooms are very comfortable.
