We were delighted to find our last stay was in Keri Keri. Our previous host told us that we had kept the best till last. Well the scenery was fantastic. However, all four of us were disappointed with The Summer House. Whilst the downstairs suite is delightful with its own terrace. If your unlucky to have am upstairs room, then...

Since every other TripAdvisor review has given us 5 in all categories and also the numerous Qualmark visitor feedback forms have always rated us 5, we doubt that our facilities and breakfasts could really have deteriorated to the extent claimed. We think that these particular guests, alone of the approximately 6000 we have welcomed into our home, may be better...

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...

Audley Travel had booked us into The Summer House in Kerikeri and it was our first NZ experience. We flew into Kerikeri from Auckland, having arrived at Auckland via Sydney and Hong Kong after a week in Xian, so we were exhausted! It was a joy to arrive at The Summer House where we had been booked into the Pavilion....

The Summer House was the best place we stayed on a three week trip to New Zealand. We spent 2 nights. The inkeepers (Rod and Christine) are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Their garden is amazing. Our room was spacious and overlooked the back garden. Christine's breakfasts are excellent. We would certainly return if we are ever in the Kerikeri...

During our 5 weeks in New Zealand we stayed at many wonderful properties, all of which have been commented on favourably by other tripadvisor members. But why no review of this little gem? I suspect those in the know want to keep it secret! We met several people who had stayed there and all pronounced it first class. The Summer...

My ladyfriend and I spent 3 days/nights at the Summer House in early January '08 and had a great stay. We booked the "Pacific Pavilion", which was a semi-detached "suite" that included a large bedroom, large bathroom (walk-in shower, no tub), half kitchen, and semi-private deck just outside double doors to the backyard garden. Overall, we had a great time...

My wife and I stayed at the Summer House for three nights during our honeymoon. Rod and Christine are excellent hosts. Rod had great suggestions for area attractions and Christine cooked absolutly delicious breakfasts.
