We arrived here having booked for 2 nights and could not resist staying longer - thankfully Mike and Chris could accommodate. Swallows Ridge shares a high quality home with you including so many 'add - ons' beyond that you would expect. From a genuine welcome cup of tea and knowledgable advice of the local area, to the use of a... More

The stay lived up to all expectations and from the first view of the house, sitting on top of the hill as we rounded the bend, to the comfortable rooms opening out onto the terrace and beautiful garden, the pool, laundry (only a small charge applies) and kitchen facilities, this was a relaxing and wonderful stay with hosts who went...

We were there at the same time as the last reviewer and couldn't have said it better. Fantastic views in bucolic, rolling countryside. Beautiful setting and Mike and Chris are great. (Mike helped us find the Southern Cross constellation on a star-filled night...no light pollution here!) We didn't stay at one of the beach resorts and are so glad that... More

My friends and I stayed 3 nights at the tranquil and relaxing Swallows Ridge with our wonderful hosts Chris and Mike. The property was lovely with beautiful views and landscaping, and there is a lovely warm pool, and deck chairs to lie on after sightseeing. The rooms, (which can be separated from the main house by a door on the... More

Mike and Chris have a small piece of paradise here in the rolling hills of New Zealand with sweeping views towards the bay of islands. They take great pride to ensure their guests are comfortable from the immaculate rooms, to the heated pool, to the delicious made to order English/American breakfast. It's the perfect spot to wake up and enjoy... More

A friend of mine and I stayed here in early February, 2015. We found Mike and Chris to be pretty much exactly what any B&B hosts should strive to be. They were pure pleasure to deal with, and it was fun to spend a bit of time getting to know them. The place is extraordinarily well maintained, and attractive as... More

This stay was just perfect! Perfect hosts, perfect location and perfect accommodation. The house is stunning, and our room, as well as the rest of the house, was to a very impressive standard. The hosts were welcoming, friendly and make a fantastic breakfast!! We will definitely be back and I could not recommend it highly enough- BOOK NOW!

Stayed at Swallows Ridge for 2 very enjoyable nights. What can I say ? Every aspect of the stay was simply superb from the moment we were greeted at the door by Chris and Mike. The location is breathtaking looking across the hills to the distant bays from the bedroom. The room was impeccably clean and the shower was one... More

When we arrived we were met directly by the owners Mike and Chris. They helped us get settled and recommended a fabulous restaurant for dinner..the best..In the morning Mike prepared a breakfast for royalty (Chris is not allowed in the kitchen:)). Our 2 night stay was better every moment. The views are ridiculous down to the bay and the sunrise... More

Mike made us a nice warm breakfast and Chris gave us great tips on where to eat... More
