What we really wanted was views, lots of space and a big spa bath! And something not too far from byron bay. And that’s what we got. Francesca suggested the forest cabin as it was their biggest cabin with their biggest spa. The cabin is elegant and modern (just renovated) with the most beautiful views overlooking the mountains and gorgeous... More

I stayed at SummerHills with my husband on July 21st. It was the first night of a wonderful 5-day cycling tour around the Byron Bay Hinterland which was a celebration of my 60th birthday. Francesca greeted us so warmly and provided us with all that we could possibly wish for after a day of peddling... A really lovely room with... More

Words can not express the wonderful time we had at SummerHills Retreat. From the champagne on arrival to the private out door spa and fantastic view. The team at SummerHills Retreat were obliging and nothing was ever a drama. The view is absolutely breath taking, as is the pool and spa. The large sprawling property was peaceful and a great...

Another perfect weekend away at SummerHills. We never get tired of the views and warm hospitality from Francesca - nothing is ever a problem, from extras in the room to booking a restaurant in town. We stayed in the self contained Cabana which is spacious and comfortable - even has its own open air spa bath! Very private and mini-bar... More

Where do I start, I was recommended by a friend to stay at "Summerhills Retreat" When we got there, everything from the look of the place to the retreat was perfectly perfect. Francesca and her team are very welcoming and amazingly accomodating to all needs. My partner and I stayed in the "Cabana Spa Cabin" The Spa is set on... More

Our stay at SummerHills was excellent. Great facilities including kitchen and washroom. This share house is located a little away from the action of Byron Bay but all in all it is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are extremely comfortable and the whole house had a good atmosphere that makes a stay enjoyable.

When we go away we usually go to the coast but this time we wanted to try something different. We'd always wanted to try the Byron Bay Hinterland and we found booking with Francesca really easy. She recommended the Forest Retreat cabin because it was the most private and that's what we wanted. It was excellent, like its own mini... More

We had a fabulous time at Summerhill retreat staying in a tranquil apartment with a bedroom for adults and one for two kids, a lovely common area and a bathroom with a spa. Birds singing in the surrounding rainforest and rolling hills surrounding the property. Absolutely beautiful. Fantastic service and what a breakfast basket! We'll definitely come back!

We stayed in the Cabana last year and we went back again this year, but this time for a longer stay. Same adorable cabin. Same surreal views. Same excellent service. This time though we had the side by side massages and wow, they were fabulous and some of the best massages we’ve ever had. We also had the breakfast basket... More
