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...

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.

Swallows Ridge is a lovely house in a scenic and peaceful location. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with its own terrace looking out onto the bay. Chris and Mike are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. They helped us make the most of our three days, advising us of places to go and booking a boat trip...
