  • Wonderful Holiday
    Reviewed by Navigator176124, February 2020
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bay Vista Waikawa Bay. Great location and beautiful view of the bay from our unit. From the moment we arrived Kerry and Liz were really friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week and it could've been longer! The unit was cleaned daily and had everything we needed. Our son loved the space to run around and would explore the waterfront daily looking for crabs and snails. If we come back to Picton we would definitely stay back here, quiet and peaceful and not far into the town centre. Thanks for having us Bay Vista
  • Great Hosts & Beautiful View
    Reviewed by Jo.W, February 2020
    The team at Bay Vista Waterfront Motel were so accommodating and were a pleasure to deal with. We were very late in booking in a busy period so we had limited choice of unit. They went out of their way to make our unit as comfortable as possible for our family group. They were super friendly, met us upon (our very late) arrival and ensured all was well. The view was a treat to wake up to
  • Best Host Ever

  • Beautiful View and Clean Room
    Reviewed by Inlook, January 2020
    The view from our room was phenomenal. We had a party of three. There was a bedroom with a queen size bed and a single in the front where my adult son slept with the incredible view. The front desk lady was wonderful, helpful and friendly. The room has everything you need with dishes, stove top and oven. I totally recommend this place.

    Lovely friendly check in, couldn't have been more helpful - even when i booked and we said we were coming up on the train we were offered to be collected, so nice. Just such a lovely spot, great views out to Waikawa Bay and watching the ferries. Had a great time and thank you, will be back again.
  • Just Perfect

    We have stayed here once before and did not disappoint us on our return. It is just such a lovely setting overlooking the waterfront and could sit outside and watch the world go by all day! Kerry the Hostess is such a welcoming person and facilitated our requests so professionally. Lovely spacious rooms, big modern kitchen with all facilities. Perfectly clean, comfy and modern motel. Best in Picton!

    A lovely, quiet getaway with amazing views. What really made our stay was how kind and helpful the host, Mani was. She made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond to make our stay perfect. All in all, we had an amazing trip and will definitely be back! Thanks Bay Vista & Mani.
  • Great Place To Stay
    Reviewed by P25UMaussie, September 2019
    One of the best places we stayed while in NZ. They upgraded us to a bigger room which was great. The place really suited what we were looking for our 3 days in Picton. Well located overlooking the Bay and still close to Town Centre of Picton.
  • Great Location With A Very Warm Welcome
    Reviewed by Rose M, September 2019
    We stayed overnight prior to the Picton-Wellington ferry crossing. Kerry gave us a very warm welcome and had upgraded us to a 2 bedroom unit. We booked at short notice that was not problematic. The unit was spacious, comfortable and cosy. This is our "go to" place to stay in Picton. The views are fantastic, even when it's raining.
  • Fantastic Location
    Reviewed by Clare W, September 2019
    Lovely units with a gorgeous view overlooking the bay. Very peaceful and quiet location a short drive from Picton. Each unit is well equipped with all you should need for your stay. Nice to have the kitchen. Our stay was winter and the unit was well heated and sunny.

  • Kerry Made us Feel So Welcome
    Reviewed by Margarete, August 2019
    What can I say, Kerry made us feel so welcome. Our unit was all we could ask for. So cosy, extremely clean and the heating was great. The views from the patio were amazing and so relaxing sitting there in the afternoon sun watching the world sail by. Views from the patio with the Cook Strait ferry heading out.

    Reviewed by Hunteurs1, August 2019
    We spent a very relaxing night soaking up the wonderful view across the bay. The unit was very comfortable, extremely clean and very warm. Kerry was very friendly and made us very welcome, also providing us with some local knowledge. Excellent value and highly recommend this property if you are looking for a relaxing place to chill out.
  • Superb Stay
    Reviewed by Andrew T, July 2019
    We arrived later than expected on a wet evening but Kerry had the heater on in our unit and it was as warm as her greeting. Kerry was a friendly, helpful and personable host throughout. Our unit was comfortable, well equipped, warm, quiet and all that we could have asked for. We slept well and had plenty of hot water in the shower. We had friends for tea one evening and we were able to cook and host as if in our own home. The view can't be beaten - wonderful. We will most certainly be back.
  • The Best
    Reviewed by Isduane, July 2019
    We did a trip from Coromandel to Nelson and stayed at a number of motels. We stayed at Bay Vista Waterfront Motel on our way down. We found the this to be the friendliest and best deal on our travels. Not that the other motels were bad but Kerry and her motel was so much better. Nothing was a problem for Kerry and the quality of the motel and its setting was second to none. I would highly recommend Bay Vista Waterfront Motel and will definitely be staying there next time I travel to the South Island.

  • So Quiet & Gorgeous Outlook
    Reviewed by khbees, July 2019
    We arrived about 8.30pm and it was a welcome surprise to find Kerry had put the heater & our electric blankets on in our room! What a treat. The room was very quiet and the outlook when we opened the curtains the next morning was amazing. Just wish we had the time to stay longer. We will be back.
  • Great Stay
    Reviewed by wikitoriamoore, June 2019
    Wonderful views and homely touches like a warm room on arrival and milk for your hot drink. Great room with a kitchen, wished we were staying longer! The shower was amazing. Thank you Kerry for your hospitality.
  • Accessibility Great
    Reviewed by LynD, June 2019
    We arrived late after a long drive on a cold day. Kerry had drawn the curtains and turned on the heaters for us - a totally top reception! The bathroom was thoughtfully designed and equipped for accessibility and included a backless shower stool. The unit was just a small lawn away from the bay and had a patio complete with table and chairs so meals could be enjoyed outside. At our family function we heard other good comments about the motel and Kerry's consideration for her guests. Definitely recommended and expect to stay there again.
