We visited Swallow's Ridge in early January and loved this place. Chris and Michael are the gold standard for b&b hosts and the rooms, food ,views and quiet location of Swallow's Ridge match that standard. It is a bargain as well! Look no further and book early!!

We had a perfect stay at Swallows Ridge. Mike and Chris made us feel at home from the very start. The beautiful house and garden, scenic view, spacious rooms, comfortable beds and Mike's amazing breakfasts couldn't have been better. We can recommend this place to anyone! Dennis&Mieke

Our experience at Swallows Ridge this month was very enjoyable. It is situated very close to Kerikeri on a beautiful property with views to Bay of Islands and within easy driving distance to the restaurants in Kerikeri. The hosts, Chris and Michael, made us very welcome and Michael's breakfasts were scrumptious. Everything we could have asked for was provided for... More

We stayed with Chris and Mike for 3 days over Christmas, it was the most relaxing Christmas ever! The house is beautifully appointed, lovely and clean, everything thought of with great attention to detail. Swallows Ridge is situated conveniently close but just out of Kerikeri which made it incredibly peaceful with amazing views over Kerikeri inlet out to Bay of... More
