We stayed in many nice places during our three weeks in New Zealand but the Summer House stands out as our favorite. Our friends stayed in the downstairs suite while we were upstairs in a large bedroom with private bath. Our mattress was excellent and the bathroom and shower were outstanding. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated with a south seas theme. The house sits on a two and one half acre former citrus orchard which Rod and Christine Brown have landscaped beautifully. Rod and Christine were incredibly helpful during our stay. Christine's breakfasts are to die for and Rod was an endless fountain of information regarding Bay of Islands attractions, history and ecology. They recommended restaurants, booked tours for us, and gave us great advice on attractions to see on our return trip to Auckland via the west coast. We could not have had better hosts or improved on the Summer House.
