There was plenty for room for us to put up a marquee for 85 people for a sit down meal, and a great area with spectacular views for dancing, drinking and...

We spent two days here in January and would have liked to stay longer! It's a well-designed modern bungalow in a fantastic location near the top of a hill, a couple of miles outside Gisborne, which is an unspectacular but very pleasant little town. We had superb views from our room of the hills on one side and the sea...

Ridge House and Gisborne have been the highlight of our visit in New Zealand. The House is absolutely stunning (both in terms of location and design) in a very quiet location, yet close to the city center. Glen and. Kim are very friendly and caring hosts. We hope to come back soon!

Stayed at ridge house for a long weekend escape, and was really impressed. Glen and Kim are excellent hosts who pay real attention to detail and made sure our stay was comfortable and relaxing. The house is designed and decorated beautifully, and we enjoyed swimming in the pool, fresh coffee in the mornings, and a glass of wine at sunset...
