Miranda and Keith have a large, modern, and very private hilltop home with stunning views to the inlet. There are two very well appointed guest rooms, each with ensuite, and well separated from the rest of the house. There's a gorgeous living room with a roaring log fire in winter. They are marvellous hosts - friendly, helpful and happy either... More

I stayed here with my husband and adult daughter and we used both bedrooms. They were lovely rooms, comfortable beds and good showers. There was a spacious beautifully presented guest lounge and dining room and an outside patio and lovely garden - with a sea view and a few friendly hens. Miranda was the most hospitable of hosts. She cooked... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent and we were not disappointed. Keith and Miranda are excellent hosts and the location is perfect. We stayed in the inlet room and woke to the beautiful views which can also be enjoyed from the terrace, lounge and dining area which we used during our stay. Keith's skills as a... More

Heron Hill combines the attention to detail of excellent small boutique accommodation with the warm hospitality of the friendly hosts. Everything about our stay was exceptional and Keith and Miranda went out of their way to make our time with them memorable with their high quality meals, knowledge of the local area and ready access to their wonderful gardens and...

We love the Bay of Islands and have spent a lot of time sampling the different hotels and accommodation the Bay has to offer. We have to say however, that Heron Hill was absolutely perfect... the weather was great (especially pleasing when speaking to friends in the UK who had snow!), the view of the ocean was to die for...

We visited all three times in the Bay of Islands area, and this turned out to be exactly where we would have chosen to stay. Quiet, with a beautiful setting overlooking the water. But high enough to avoid heat, noise, and sand flies. It is accessible to everything, but private. The host and hostess seem like family, but leave you... More

We had stayed previously with Miranda and Keith and so good was the experience we decided that on our next visit to NZ we would stay over Christmas and New Year. What a great decision that was. We were made to feel part of the family and it was amazing on Christmas Day to sit eating great food whilst admiring... More

Exquisite location with beautiful lawn and gardens overlooking the water. Beautifully appointed bedroom and ensuite bathroom and a lovely lounge for guest use. Personal attention from Keith and Miranda is unobtrusive and superb; cheerful, accommodating and knowledgeable. And the food is to die for. You won't be disappointed.

The surroundings are great as is the service from the hosts. It is always difficult to drag myself away each day. Dinner is alaways interesting and tasty, with good wine to match. The rooms are excellent, very comfortable and quiet. Always look forward to staying here.
