Vista del Sol
Ranked #1 of 2 Te Horo B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 18, 2012

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.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are nice. It depends on what type of room you need ie. two bed vs one bed

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!

My husband and I after 7 years of marriage decided to get away for a week-end.We ended up at Vista del Sol.An amazing restful place with so much of character about it.The hosts were warm and friendly.The home was warm and clean ....It was awesome.

Lynette and Mike definately made our choice a good one by the way they presented the home and the communication was like family.

A must for anyone who need to get away and have a touch of warmth with family....

Loved it!

Room Tip: The Kapiti room is great for sun and view.

Fabulous location, fabulous accommodation, fabulous food and fabulous hosts. 5 star B&B with 5 star treatment from Mike & Lynette. The villa is secluded and set in lovely countryside. The accommodation is pristine and everything you could possibly require in the way of toiletries is provided in the room. Mike and Lynette are the perfect hosts, and go out of there way to make you feel at home.
We ate out twice at 'fine dining' local restaurants during our stay, but the meal provided by Lynette (ably supported by Mike) was by far and away the best meal of the three. Breakfast included freshly baked bread, locally produced preserves, fresh fruits, yoghurts and cereals as standard... all beautifully presented. Lynette will accommodate your every wish. I happened to mention that I liked pancakes and blueberries, and the next morning we had exactly that.
We had a great time, just chatting with Mike and Lynette, over the dining room table and sharing a bottle of wine. We would definitely recommend Vista Del Sol to others and we will be returning ourselves later in the year.

It was my first time in a Bed and Breakfast and the experience was simply awesome. Mike and Lynette are fabulous hosts and made me feel very welcome. The room was amazingly presented and the surroundings were tranquility itself - beautiful gardens and large areas of land to wander around. The spa was very relaxing after a hard day's walk around Kapiti Island. Breakfast was meticulously presented and very delicious.
I would definitely recommend Vista Del Sol to others.

TRANQUIL! The whole atmosphere is absolutely peaceful. It was an escape from the usual tourist route. Mike and Lynette were incredibly accommodating. Breakfast was simply AMAZING - YUMMY! Loads of room (inside and outside) to get lost in. Found the mixer to the shower in my room a bit far but was later found out that the room was fitted out to be wheelchair friendly. So - a definite recommendation!
