I stayed at the villa for a 2 night stay to enjoy the tranquility and calm of Picton. Picton has a very chilled out atmosphere and a GREAT Irish bar (not the usual theme but a lovely bar run by an Irish connected couple). The hostel, although not the cheapest, is well equiped and has a great atmosphere and helpful staff.
In Picton, as a portal between North and south, you will meet travellers with stories and advice of where to go and where not to go in both Islands.
Don't forget to ask the staff for advice and see the very well behaved hostel cats and dogs (who you can walk if you want).
the best hostel I visited in the whole of New Zealand.
