Sounds Vista B&B was a delight! Nikki and Brent are wonderful hosts who really make you feel at home immediately. We stayed in room #1. It was spacious, equipped with a small fridge and coffee/tea facilities, and iron and ironing board - very comfortable bed and bedding, too. The large bath with walk-in shower has towel warmers, a heated floor...

We stayed one night after coming off the ferry. The rooms were beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. Beautiful bathroom. Lovely continental breakfast. Friendly hosts. Is up a steep hill therefore nice views from the front veranda.

My husband and I stayed at Sounds Vista B&B for one night on our way back to Wellington. The place was just what we needed to relax and re-charge before heading back on the road again.

I stayed in the double en-suite. Nice size of room, big storage cupboard along with bathroom and comfy bed. When I e-mailed about check in times, I got the offer of a lift from the ferry port, which I accepted. When I got there, and when passing, Nikki and Brent invited me to sit with them to chat about my...

Fantastic hosts and an warm and immaculate setting. We happened to be there when one of the most recent recent reviewers "redwood fan" showed up. From what we saw the host handled the situation diplomatically as the guest had misrepresented who was to be staying at the property. The view from our room was spectacular and we couldn't have been...

I booked through Hotels.com. The description (and the relatively expensive price) did not make it clear that the room does not have a bathroom in it - that one needs to walk through the house to use the bathroom. I was pretty blown away. The owner wanted us to pay even more for a small bedroom with no view that...

It's a shame that all accommodation providers don't get to write reviews and rate guests like you, giving then the option to refuse entry to their property. Based on your previous reviews, it is clear to see what sort of attitude you have ! We would certainly not have allowed you the privilege of staying in our Home !!

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.
