My partner and I spent 2 nights here but wish it could have been longer. Mike and Chris were lovely hosts, and their place was stunning.We really enjoyed the swimming pool, and the friendly ducks and chicken who live on the land!

This bed and breakfast was absolutely charming, clean, and the best of the best. If you are in the area it is a must stay. Mike and Chris made the stay so amazing with their beautiful personalities and the lovely breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer! This is at the top of my list for b&b.

My wife and I recently stayed at Swallows RIdge as part of our honeymoon trip to New Zealand, and we enjoyed our two nights there immensely. The rooms were extremely comfortable - clean, spacious and with a stunning view over towards Kerikeri Inlet and the Bay of Islands. We found Mike and Chris extremely friendly and they made us feel...

We stayed at Swallows Ridge for one night with our family and we loved it. It was immaculate and as a self confessed "clean freak" I was delighted with the standard of cleanliness and attention to detail. Our hosts, Mike and Chris were so friendly and welcoming and we were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much... More

Once again I was not disappointed with this fantastic choice for accommodation. I travel many miles on business and I make a point at staying at Swallows Ridge. Not only the restfulness and view but the pure customer service. You are treated like a member of the family and that's in a good way. Its always fun to wake up... More

We stayed at Swallows Ridge for one night. Everything in this B and B was pristine with particular attention to detail. The views were amazing and I think if we had stayed here in the summer, the outside space would have been very difficult to beat. The range of breakfasts offered was very good and Mike's cooking was certainly above... More

Gorgeous views and lovely hosts! If you love these 2 things, then this place is for you. Situated in Kerikeri, Swallows ridge was just beautiful. The care taken to make us feel welcome to the amazing breakfasts, we felt like this was a home away from home. The picturesque views from Swallows ridge while swimming in the pool made our... More

After a long day we arrived in the dark to a wonderful welcome from Chris & Mike. We chose Swallows Ridge for the view and wow what a view it is. Fabulous vista to wake up to in the morning and enjoy while eating a lovely breakfast cooked by Mike. The house is beautiful and the attention to detail to... More

Mike and Chris were delightful and altho we only had a one night stay, they were very accommodating and helpful. They are located out in the country, a 10-15 min drive, but worth it for the beautiful scenery and immaculate home! The breakfast was yummy and we wish we had been able to stay longer!
