Reviewed 16 October 2007

We loved Heron Hill! Thank you Keith and Miranda for making our stay so much more meaningful. Kerikeri is obviously full of wonderful people. The surrounds and activities matched your wonderful hospitality and cooking! You really have got the mix just right and we look forward to coming back again.

We spent a long weekend at Heron Hill in 2006. Where do I start? Keith and Miranda our hosts made us feel very welcome and relaxed.
Keith is a very, very good cook. We had some memorable meals and even a little cooking demonstartion which was great fun.
We stayed in a gorgeous room which opened on to a private balconey with enchanting views. Our room had a good sized ensuite bathroom, spotlessly clean with really lovely products to use.
The bed linen was really good quality and the room itself was well equiped.
What made our stay at Heron Hill was the hospitality and warmth of our hosts. We'll certainly be back!

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our New Zealand vacation. What a wonderful place. The rooms are very comfortable and clean-Very comfortable bed.
The view from the property is gorgeous and the house is very comfortable. But the best part were the hosts - Miranda and Keith and their lovely daughter. They give you as much privacy as you want or invite you to share time with them. They made us feel very special and very welcome.
The breakfast - included- was wonderful - we never had anything quite as nice the rest of the trip. Several nights we had dinner (costs extra but so worth it). We watched as Keith prepared our gourmet meal and drank wine and chatted like old friends. They were more than wiling to book anything we wanted or just give advice. The Bay of Islands area is very beautiful and well worth at least a week to explore - we felt like we had just scratched the surface.
If you go to New Zealand and like stunning scenery, you should definitely explore the Bay of Islands on the North Island and you should most definitely stay at the Heron Hill B&B.

We (two couples traveling together) spent 3 nights in this beautiful home in late March 2006. The grounds and view are fantastic, the rooms with baths are brand new, ultra-clean and pleasantly furnished. As the 2 rooms (only) are in a separate part of the house from the owners' living quarters, there is a very large, vaulted ceilinged living room/dining room with full glass open to the patios and the magnificent, unobstructed views of the water and penninsula. The hosts are the best combination of friendliness and professionalism one could find. Moreover, the breakfasts are great and the dinner we were able to have with them was beyond compare . . . 5 courses with different wines and champagnes, all prepared and served by the hosts (Keith has had a lot of training in both cuisine and landscaping, and they do a catering business now that he's retired from landscaping at a young age). Their daughter is very sweet and pleasant to talk with. This was one of our favorite spots to stay during our 3plus weeks in New Zealand, both north and south islands, comparing favorably in memory with Arowoa Resort in Abel Tasman although there are no similarities between the two. You'd be fortunate to make this your center during a visit to the Bay of Islands/Russell, Paihia, Kerikeri area. It's only a short drive over to Russell and other sightseeing areas. We give it 5 stars!
