The 27th of Januari we arrived at the Summer House in Kerikeri. Our room was spacious and there was a nice terrace looking out over the beautiful garden. Our hosts were very kind and told us all about the village, the walks, the golf course and made a reservation for us in 2 restaurants, where the food was very good....

My friend and I spent 2 great nights at The Summer House. The house itself is beautiful, the rooms are perfectly appointed and comfortable and the garden is gorgeous. The true stars of this bed & breakfast are the hosts. Christine and Rod were gracious and welcoming hosts who helped us plan our short stay in the Bay of Islands....

We stayed in the "suite" which was overlooking the beautiful garden. The room was impeccable, bed comfortable. The hosts, Christine and Rod were fantastic. Rod was a wealth of information about NZ history and the area. It is situated close to everything but secluded in location. We loved it!

The Summer House is a lovely B & B in a beautiful garden. Christine and Rod were very welcoming as well as very knowledgeable and helpful with things to do in the area. The breakfasts (three) were probably the best we had on our trip, largely because of the generous and varied supply of home grown citrus fruit, though we...

We spent 2 nights in the Pacific Pavilion (self-contained suite). It was quiet, comfortable and well taken care of. Our hosts were more than helpful, helped us plan our activities and prepared us a wonderful breakfast each morning. It was the nicest place we stayed during our trip. Ignore the negative post - they obviously don't know what they're talking...

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.

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...
