We stayed at Summer Hills late December early Jan. We were so happy to find this place. It is picturesque, tranquil and conveniently located close to the beautiful town of Bangalow. The location of the villas/bungalows meant that we were afforded a lot of privacy. Quite often felt like we were the only guests (we weren't). Scenic drive to Byron... More

We had the most beautiful secluded week away in early January - the pictures on the website barely do justice to this most idyllic setting. It's only a few minutes away from Bangalow's shops, galleries and cafes, but you'll feel as though you're in an entirely set aside world at Summer Hills. If you're after a very special solitude and... More

I am so pleased that I elected to stay in Summerhill Retreat and not in Byron Bay itself. I woke up every morning to exquisitely beautiful vistas and the sounds of nature. After a beautiful breakfast I generally took trips in different directions, sometimes to Byron Bay using Old Bangalow Road ( thank you for the tip Francesca) thereby avoiding... More

The SummerHills Retreat is located about five minutes drive from the town of Bangalow and about twenty five minutes drive to Byron Bay. Situated in a beautiful countryside setting in the Byron Bay hinterland, there is a main house and two smaller lodges built around an extensive outdoor living space including two barbecue areas and a good sized pool overlooking...

Fantastic location in the hills above Byron Bay with amazing views. Once we found the old road to Byron which skipped the traffic and made for a lovely drive to the coast it made the trip to the beach hassle free. Lovely room with outside accessed kitchen and bathroom. Beautifully equipped room (really comfy bed and good kitchen with all... More

Dear Shropslady, We thank you for writing a review to share with the TripAdvisor community. We are very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and we loved meeting with you both as well.

Summerhills retreat is amazing! Great bush walks, and the service was always warm and friendly, they were always there to help us. Only thing is is that we thought it was close to Byron Bay because of what it says in the name when it's actually a 30 minute drive away. None the less was a really nice play to... More
