Staying at Swallows Ridge for 3 days was the most amazing get-away. The rooms were immaculate, the view amazing, the facilities perfect and the hosts were just beautiful people and nothing was too much trouble. This little corner of the Bay of Islands gave a couple of Aussies a perfect break from city life.

We recently spent a night at Swallows Ridge and were tremendously impressed by the friendly, helpful hosts, the luxurious quality of the accommodation, the situation in quiet countryside overlooking the distant Bay of Islands and Mike's wonderful home-cooked breakfast. We consider ourselves aficionados of B&Bs and this definitely one of the best we've stayed at! Alan & Gay B.

My family and I (4 adults and one teenager) spent the night at Swallows ridge, and what a lovely place to stay! The setting is beautiful, views of the country side and bay, luxurious rooms and perfect hosts, Chris and Mike. Would strongly recommend Swallows ridge as the place to stay in KeriKeri.
