You are completely free and cosseted in Fernridge. Magnificent views look far into the distance from its carefully positioned balconies. There are all kinds of unexpected luxuries (oils, soaps, the softest robes and sheets, tasty water) and a well stocked kitchen. The generosity of our hosts John and Erin was incredible. We were brought fresh fish and soup everyday so we ate like kings. Fern Ridge is magnificent log-cabin, built out of John and Erin’s love for bush and sea and it is done such with abundance and off-grid eco-care Being there was a great experience and by far the highlight of my NZ accommodations. Hopefully, I’ll make it back.
We also stayed in the Bay of Islands and I preferred the beaches and characters of the far north. There is actually more to see here. A definite five stars.More
