Truly fantastic experience staying in this beautiful B&B. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Felt like visiting old friends but without being intrusive. Very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Suggested activities and places to eat. Highly recommend

After a very delayed arrival, I was warmly greeted and taken care of like a VIP. The couple who own the place made me so very welcome and at home. I felt very special. The room I was given was just wonderful. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud and it was so lovely and warm I slept a... More

What a beautiful home and B&B set-up Nikki and Brent (?) have here. We only stayed one night before our ferry the next day but this was a comfortable, relaxing base from which to explore Marlborough. We shy away from B&B's because we prefer eating/living in private and weren't aware this was B&B when I booked through an overseas agent... More

Thank you for your review. We enjoyed meeting you both. I'm not sure if you were aware at time of booking your accommodation that we also have available 2 luxurious en-suite rooms. Both with tiled heated floor & heated towel rail. Our intention for the family room you booked is to add a en- suite in the future. Thanks again... More

My daughters and I stayed at this B&B while passing through on a trip around the south island. The couple running the B&B were incredibly warm, almost bringing us into their family. The rooms were very nice as was the breakfast the next morning. If we were passing through again, we would definitely stay here again.

Lovely B&B in the beautiful Picton. I only stayed here for one night, but would happily return in the future. The hosts were wonderfully hospitable and the room very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend Sounds Vista to family and friends.

My daughter and I arrived on the late ferry from Wellington and stayed overnight before driving to Christchurch. Nikki kindly waited up for us when our ferry was delayed by fog in Wellington harbour. We had a comfortable stay in the spacious family room, everything was immaculately clean and the shower was very good! We were treated to a delicious... More

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... More
