The additional guest kitchen facilities are great with everything you need including wine a skiable to purchase in case you feel like a n evening in.

Where to begin Swallow Ridge is sooo much more than a quaint B & B Chris and Mike make you welcome the minute you arrive. Their home is beautiful and new - but welcoming. Our room was exactally what we wanted for a first class trip away for easter.

Stayed at Swallows Ridge for the Easter Holiday. It's only about 5 minutes from Kerikeri town centre. Very quiet environment and beautiful view. Very nice room, surrounding, breakfast and hosting.I think I will be there for next holiday. Thanks a lot, Chris and Mike.

A beautiful, brand new home with kind and gracious hosts. Mike and Chris do everything they can to make their guests feel comfortable in their cozy homestead. The grounds are beautifully kept and they seem to have thought of everything guests might possibly need. Plus they do it all themselves - you can tell how much they care about the... More

Having stayed at Swallows Ridge in November 2014, we are rather late in writing our review but definitely wanted everyone to know what a great place this is. Even in November the temperature in the Bay of Islands was very warm and we had a fantastic time enjoying the great accommodation and wonderful breakfasts. We were there for 3 nights... More

We only had time to stay 1 night, but it was a perfect stay. Mike and Chris were so friendly and very helpful. The house and rooms are very nice and modern, there are nice views down to Kerikeri inlet. Breakfast was great.

Couldn't fault this accommodation in any way. Stayed 4 nights in mid-March and enjoyed it greatly. Location outside Kerikeri was a bit tricky to find but proved to be very handy. Picturesque view of Bay of Islands from a multi-acre property, complete with a chicken and a duck! Beautiful modern home purpose-built for B&B. Spacious room, comfortable bed, modern bathroom,...

This B & B is extraordinary. The house and rooms are beautiful, the view is spectacular, and the hosts, Mike and Chris, are great. We particularly spent time with Mike who shared a lot of information about the area. The breakfast was also very good. This is a great place to stay while exploring the Bay of Islands area.

We were booked to stay 2 days and luckily they were able to accommodate us for a 3rd night. Mike and Chris have a beautiful home and were very welcoming. We arrived very late in the evening and Chris kindly made us some sandwiches and tea as we had missed dinner in town. Their property is in a very tranquil... More
