“A must stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Had the pleasure of staying at Brent and nikki's wonderful B&B. nothing was too much trouble for Nikki during our stay. We stayed in room 1 which was superb in every way. Lovely big comfy bed, walk in wardrobe to the side and the most amazing bathroom with a fab walk in shower. Breakfast was very well presented with plenty of choice, even had the pleasure of Nikki sitting down sharing breakfast with us. Our only disappointment was we didn't stay longer !!! But hey that was our fault !! Do stay here if you get the chance, you will not be disappointed. Many thanks Nikki for a wonderful stay. Terry & jo

Room Tip: Go for room 1. Superb bathroom !!

We had three nights at the Sounds Vista B&B and it was a highlight of our three weeks in NZ. Brent kindly picked us up from the ferry and within minutes we were in a really comfortable room with a great view down to the water. Brent and Nikki's hospitality is fantastic - they made sure everything we needed was there, and more. The bedroom was really comfortable and immaculate. Breakfast was fantastic, plenty to choose from and lots of it. We would thoroughly recommend staying here. As for the location, it's only a short walk into town and you get such a good view as a result.

An immaculate B & B with really spacious rooms and equally spacious bathrooms. Superbly comfortable beds and a good breakfast. It's a bit of a walk from the town centre, but the host offers a very good free taxi service if you can't face the hill. Great views too. We were a little concerned about the nearby railway line, but there was no appreciable noise from passing trains.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it is very much appreciated. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay here in Picton and yes the train isn't too much of a problem in the two guest rooms, they are very well insulated.

Just few minutes drive from the ferry habor, I'd say Sounds Vista is the best B&B we ever stayed during our 18-day visit in NZ. Brant and Nikki are amazing hosts and we enjoyed one night in the comfortable room.

The room is clean and the free wifi is fast.

We definitely would stay here again if we visit Picton.

We were delighted with our five star quality suite, and the whole experience of staying at Sounds Vista. The room was very well-appointed, with quality facilities, elegant soft furnishings, and a focus on comfort. We loved the gleaming spacious bathroom, and the dressing-room (and wished we had time to stay longer to make full use of it!). Brent and Nicki were perfect hosts, friendly and helpful, yet discreet so that we relaxed into our own space. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, in a pleasant room set in the heart of their own home, and we appreciated the warm, attentive experience, which was tailored to our appetites. Views from the bedroom were stunning, and the deck just beyond our window beckoned us to relax outside. Without any hesitation, we recommend Sounds Vista to every discerning traveller.

Room Tip: We had the superior room, which was totally wonderful, and included a mini fridge, and facilities fo...

Spent two nights in this lovely house . Our room was first class and the ensuite was fabulous. Brent and Nicki could not do enough for us even giving us some after sun lotion. Everything was perfect. Looking out of the window early evenning at the lights from the harbour was very relaxing. Im still talking about this place now that we are back in Auckland. Thank you so much both of you. P S The breakfast was a good time to sit down and have a chat with our hosts and of course yummy food.

Don't let the fact that this B&B isn't in the town centre put you off. Our bedroom was very tastefully decorated with thoughtful attention to detail, the ensuite was fabulous and the view from the room and the deck was stunning. Brent & Nicki were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to be helpful. We walked into Picton for dinner and Brent kindly came and picked us up and brought us back. Breakfast was a feast of muesli, yogurt, fruit and freshly baked croissants - a perfect start to the day! We will definitely be returning and will pass the word around our friends.
