Six of us stayed with Mike and Lynette for our first night in New Zealand. What wonderful hosts. Upon arrival, Mike immediately took care of the luggage. They opened the bar and hosted us with wine and drinks and pleasant conversation. Rooms were great- the suite upstairs rivals any luxury hotel. While Mike chauffeured us to a restaurant, Lynette even... More

My partner and I needed a break from the city and found this B&B while searching online. It was a perfect weekend and the hosts were extremely friendly and easy to talk with. I felt really comfortable and at home there. Lynette did our massages and she did a wonderful job - it has been two weeks since and I... More

We just arrived, trying to figure out what we need from our luggage. Mike turned up opened his arms to welcome us at home. That was it. From that moment on, we felt like 100% being at home. Lynette and Mike are the most loving people i ve met in my life. SO much attention to the slightest detail during... More

I can't speak highly enough of Vista Del Sol! We stayed there for our wedding night, and it was just perfect.

Not often we experienced such a warm welcome as we got from Lynette and Mike who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Situated in a beautiful natural setting, this B&B offers superb views, perfect breakfasts and an instant getaway-feeling. We had a great stay!

Lynette and Mike take care of you: The service at their B & B is just tremendous! They bring you to and fetch you from a fine restaurant where they have booked a table for you. So you can enjoy a glass of wine or two. They do a tour with you down to the beach with a 4x4. Lynette... More

We stayed two days with Mike and Lynette and they went out of their way to make sure that we were looked after and pampered. The breakfast is outstanding and everything was beautifully cared for. We couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Mike and Lynette were great host. They would go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and the showers are rain shower which you see in over the top spas. They also cook breakfast as you ordered--it tasted great. I would recommend this place for everyone for any occasions.

The perfect place to relax! Room and facilities were excellent - we loved the spa. Mike & Lynette were amazing hosts and we got so much more than we expected. All the extra little things made the stay really special. We would highly recommend this B&B and would love to make it back some time!
