Her Worship welcomed Vista del Sol to Kapiti at a time when investment has been scarce due to the recession, such high quality accommodation would be an asset to the region. It was additionally welcome with the bulk of the 1 million dollar upgrade being spent on local trades and business and the continuing operation of the B&B also featuring award winning local produce, wines and condiments.

He also welcomed and congratulated Vista del Sol on the investment in the area, the quality of accommodation and facilities, and added an additional thank you to Vista del Sol for its support of a donation of a night in the Tararua Suite for the Charity Auction held two days earlier in Horowhenua to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House (supporting families with child cancer).
