We loved every moment we spent at this retreat! The lush and tranquil surrounds, abundant birdlife, outdoor bathing area with a view to rival all others, stunning pool, manicured gardens, native forest, sunset views, resorative walks all made extra special by the attentive and lovely Manager, Francesca. One of the best places we've stayed in.

We stayed 3 nights at this amazing retreat. The children swam in the pool and we cooked in the large downstairs kitchen. As ever it was quiet and relaxing and just a short drive to the centre of Bangalow gives you the best of both worlds. Francesca is a welcoming host and nothing is too much trouble. The apartments are... More

My wife and I decided to spend another week at beautiful SummerHills. We weren't disappointed with any of the treasures we had uncovered from our first visit. The gentle pulse of retreat-like living, walks through the tall forest and macadamia plantations, lazy afternoons by the pool and candle lit dinner in our secreted cabin was an adventure in a timeless,...

We stayed at summerhills retreat a few weekends ago, we really loved the forests and the gardens and the room was very clean. The big spa was very nice and relaxing. We needed a break away and the privacy of the forest garden cabin really suited us down to the ground. It had a barbeque and kitchen which was really... More

SummerHills was an absolutely beautiful experience. Francesca was warm and knowledgeable about everything the area had to offer, we were fortunate she recommended the cafes and restaurants in Bangalow because they were a highlight! The landscape around the property is divine, it was such a pleasure to look out the window and from the outdoor spa to see a panorama... More

We normally stay in the cabana cabin but this time we tried the palm view Tuscany suite and it suited us quite well. Super fast Wi-Fi is... More

Return visit to Summer Hills was just as good as the first. This time we stayed in the Forest Retreat Cabin which was nicely decorated with a large spa and king size bed and also very private. The cabin has a kitchen and bbq but there are plenty of good places to eat just 5-10 minutes (by car) down the... More

We stayed in the cabana! An absolutely amazing well set out little cottage with all we needed to stay 4 amazing days. The spa was my favourite to sit in and we got complementary bottle of champagne to top it all off! It was great to be up in the hills on the countryside rather than being in town or... More
