The apartment was very comfortable and surrounded by flowers and greenery. The front view was terrific, especially when the sun finally came out. It was too wet to eat meals out on the front deck. There is a nice clothes washer. Our clothes did not dry on the covered line or in the bathroom. The last night we draped them on chairs around the heater and by morning they were dry. Our host was very welcoming and helpful. We would have enjoyed staying a few more days as two nights were not enough to see everything. We liked the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and the Just Fish restaurant.
Swallows Nest has an amazing view from your front door. The apartment is very well equipped with all the comforts of home. The owners are very friendly and knowledgable about the area. They told us about tours, great places to eat and even things to do if it was raining. Janet had made some beautiful muffins for us on arrival which was very much appreciated. Had the best time in The Bay of Islands. Would recommend Swallows Nest to everyone.
Swallows Nest proved a great choice for our 4 night stay in the Bay of Islands. The accommodation was comfortable and spacious, with great views and parking right in front. Just 15 mins walk into Pahia (though the return is all uphill), the position was ideal for us, being quiet and peaceful. Owners Janet and Jim were welcoming and helpful.
