We stayed three nights at this most ideallic of locations, and our only regret was not planning to stay longer.
Our hosts, Chris & Mike, made us most welcome and pampered to our every need in 5-star luxury.
After partaking of a hearty breakfast prepared by Mike, and enjoying the magnificent views, the options were to just relax by the pool or venture out to the many attractions of the area just a short drive away, including Paihia, the Waitangi Treaty House, and cruises around the islands.
The views from the house location are to die for, and Swallows Ridge is outstanding and most highly recommended.
