We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Ridge House and could (should) have stayed longer. The location is great, a short drive from the beautiful Wainui beach and only 5 minutes drive into Gisborne itself, which made eating out in the evening easy. The house is stunning and the room we stayed in was large, had a big bathroom,... More

They showed a real interest in us and in catering to our needs and wishes Glen picked us up in Te Kaha and drove... More

Glen and Kim have a truly wonderful home with panoramic views across the Gisborne vista. We fell in love with Ridge House as soon as we saw it and knew it would be the perfect setting for our wedding ceremony and reception. We live in Auckland, so did most of our planning from a distance over the phone and via... More

Glen and Kim set the standard! We had two nights in this wonderfully-located, inspiring home and have been enthusing ever since about the views, the hospitality, the amenities and many small details which made our stay such a relaxing, engaging experience. These are outstanding hosts who have thought through what their guests enjoy and assured that everything is provided. And... More

We had the most fantastic time staying with Kim and Glen in January...They are both such lovely hosts and made us feel very welcome...it felt like staying with friends. Kim and Glen are such natural hosts and such interesting people to talk to. Maybe we "exploited" this a bit during our leisurely breakfasts that Glen cooked so expertly, but they... More

I booked 2 nights at Ridge house for my parents who were visiting us in Gisborne from the UK over Christmas. Kim and Glen were amazing hosts and accommodated myself and my partner without hesitation to join mum and dad for breakfast each morning! The house is magnificent, as is the friendly cat! Beautiful views, swimming pool and spa. So... More

We fully concur with the other reviews on Trip Advisor- we stayed with Kim and Glen leading up to Christmas and we couldn't have asked for more. One expects a clean bedroom and on suite but the little touches (fresh flowers, chocolates, mince pies when we arrived, we were even given some of Glen's wonderful honey on Christmas morning, the...

Our stay was fantastic and one of the highlights of our road trip through the North Island. The place is amazing for a great sleep after a long drive up from Napier. Thank you Kim and Glen for the wonderful hospitality, and Glen your morning coffees are magical.

We called Kim at the last minute to book a room, we arrived and were so happy with our choice. It is a beautiful home furnished with beautiful and interesting pieces of art.
