Swallows Ridge is just amazing. Its setting is idyllic and the owners Chris and Mike could not be more friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is luxurious and very comfortable. The swimming pool is an added bonus. We are planning another trip to NZ in December 2015 and will definitely be returning to Swallows Ridge.

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!

We took a quick dip in the solar heated pool and watched the sunset. The home is immaculate with everything you can think...

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...

Mike and Chris are such a warm, humorous and knowledgeable couple. They made our experience (Yemisi and Kristina) very enjoyable.
