Three nights were too short to fully appreciate this modern and fully equipped Bed and Breakfast. The hosts are friendly, helpful and make great breakfasts to provide a foundation for days of exploring the Bay of Islands. The view from the terrace and the pool is commanding to the point that we almost wished for days locked up at the...

We enjoyed our stay with Mike & Chris at Swallows Ridge B&B. It was our first night in New Zealand and we were not disappointed! They were wonderful hosts, with great restaurant recommendations and breakfast the next morning was fantastic. The only thing that would have made it better, is if we would have thought to call them directly to...

A beautiful spot and great central location for our few days in Bay of Islands area. Mike and Chris were very hospitable, their modern comfortable home provided everything we could wish for. We are happy to recommend it thoroughly. We played golf at Kauri Cliffs and also Kerikeri GC which were both fantastic.

The view, the hosts, the property -- all exceptional, A-plus. It's doubtful you'll find a more enjoyable place to stay while visiting Kerikeri or the Bay of Islands area. Mike and Chris will treat you as old friends and see to any of your travel needs.
