Faultless - simply faultless.

Friendly reception, and the hosts provided everything we needed. The room was very comfortable and we appreciated their guidance and suggestions what to do in the area.

Fantastic breakfasts with fresh fruit from the garden.

A wonderful quiet break, far from the madding crowd.

It has been quite a while since we visited New Zealand together. Aside from all beautiful sights we have seen and wonderful things we have experienced there, it’s about time we let you know how we feel about our stay at “The Summer House” at Kerikeri. Of all hotels and Bed & Breakfast-places we visited “The Summer House” tops them all. All accommodations on both North and South Island have been selected with the greatest care for us by our travel-agent Jan Gerritsen from Taupo. Of our total of 33 days we spend 3 days at Kerikeri. Our stay at “The Summer House” has been a delightful experience which contributed greatly to the overall unforgettable impression that we got from this glorious journey. The rooms are simply fantastic, the garden unbelievably beautiful and the food is of a quality that one would only expect to find in five star hotels. Hospitality can be found there that is truly heart-warming and both host and hostess can provide you with information about the surrounding area and points of interest that is above average. All meals are served with superb care and you can see and taste that all food is prepared with great knowledge of nutrition, taste and health-aspects working with the best of ingredients and fresh items. Surmising we can only wholeheartedly say that our stay at “The Summer House” has been unsurpassed. Thanks to Christine and Rod Brown.

We stayed for two nights and found the Summer House really relaxing. Our suite was very clean and well appointed; the gardens are beautiful. Rod and Christine were perfect hosts and couldn't do enough for us. We would have no hesitation in going back there.

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.
