5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Stayed for two nights in an most comfortable room with everything you would need.
Brent and Nicki were great hosts and nothing was problem, even lending my partner a wetsuit.
A great place to stay, highly recommended.

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.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that your time with us was great and that you enjoyed the bathroom. A lot of thought had gone into the design of the bathroom to make it user friendly.
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!
