We felt welcome at first meeting of Chris and Mike. The house is set up so nice with a wing of three rooms, a nice "utility area" with refrigerator and basic items so we could eat at "home". The biggest aspect was the hospitality of the owners. Thank you!

After a bit of confusion finding Swallows Ridge with Mike guiding me turn by turn on the cell phone, we found ourselves at their beautiful home on the top of a ridge overlooking the Bay of Islands. We took a quick dip in the solar heated pool and watched the sunset. The home is immaculate with everything you can think... More

I fell in love with that place when I was looking at our options on the internet and couldn’t not to include a stay there in our trip itinerary. So we went up north straight from the Auckland Airport – about 3.5h drive. When we arrived it was already pitch dark, we struggled for a moment to find the right... More

We spent 3 nights here at this B and B, we were welcomed warmly and despite disappointing weather were helped so much but the owners. First, excellent breakfast of our choosing,secondly, our hosts were able to arrange a flight for us up to Cape Reinga at a reduced cost. Would recommend this to our friends.
