Rod and Christina were the ultimate B&B hosts. The Summer House was beautifully appointed and tidy. The garden was extensive and we appreciated the fresh fruit from the orchards on the breakfast table. The weather wasn't great (rain but not cold) but the recommended hikes and sight seeing were spot-on. The wireless internet access was easy to use. Rod was very knowledgable about the history and culture of the Bay of Islands and we enjoyed the reference books during our "inside" time. We felt very welcome and will visit again.
