first of all, brent and nikki are amazing hosts, charming and accommodating. when they heard we'd walked all the way from the ferry terminal (barely 1.5 km), they were appalled - they would have happily come and picked us up! and they did just that the next day after we ventured down into the town center, and also dropped us...

We have just completed our month long trip to New Zealand and Australia.This was our best B&B experience in either country. The setting is up a hill with a great view of the harbor, perfect for enjoying an evening glass of wine .While the walk to town may be a little long for some individuals, especially the walk back up,...

We stayed only one night at 'Sounds Vista' B&B ~ yet experienced what was the nicest, cleanest and well appointed room, and superb en-suite bathroom and a most enthusiastic and helpful owner in Nikki. Nothing was too much trouble and her breakfast layout was magic. Our room had a view of Picton below and a nice outdoor area to take... More

Nicki is an excellent host, going out of her way to make us comfortable, even offering use of her laundry. Sounds Vista is close enough to town to walk should you desire, about 15 mins flat walk, or just a couple of minutes drive. We stayed in the family room, a large, comfortable room downstairs with all the usual facilities... More

The B&B is a a short drive out of town on SH1 South so unless you use toe local pub you need the car if you're going back into Picton for a meal. We were late getting in because of a delayed ferry sailing and the house was a little hard to find in the dark: it is up a... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It was nice that you chose to stay again with us on your return from your holiday down South. We must look into doing some of the walks that you spoke about that you both did. About the train noise, we agree it can be disturbing especially if the windows... More

Rooms were very comfortable. Nikki and Brent were welcoming and pointed us to an excellent restaurant where we ate both nights. The books in the room about the area were really interesting in fact I bought a copy of one as a souvenir. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and everything was perfect. The owners, Brent and Nikki were so welcoming and helpful. For instance, they picked us up at the ferry port, transported us into town on a wet morning, booked a wine tour for us and did a machine-load of laundry! Room 1 is very spacious with a lovely bay window... More

What a complete pleasure. No one could be more helpful or caring then our host and hostess and our stay in Picton was delightful. Nikki recommended restaurants that turned out to be excellent. Our wine tour was fantastic and so much fun. The bedrooms were so comfortable and well equipped and their home was delightful.

Excellent accomodation and welcoming hosts. I stayed for a couple of nights in December 2014 at the start of my trip around South Island. Both Brent and Nikki were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. On the morning I left they arranged an early breakfast for me as I had to be in Nelson to pick my daughter up... More
