Spent a lovely day here with a group of friends. The accomodation was comfortable and very clean with lovely garden views. Beautiful spacious bathroom. Relaxing pool area with fantastic country/ mountain views. A huge communal kitchen that was great to prepare meals for a group. Host was so accomodating to all our needs and so friendly.

This place was everything we wanted in a retreat style getaway. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms we very comfortable and clean. Francesca the host was really good with recommending place to eat and things to see and made sure we had a great time. Definitely the place to stay in Bangalow.

We were in suite adjacent to others like a duplex, which we didn't expect. Very noisy neighbours 6 ladies on a hen's weekend apparently, until we complained on Saturday then were moved to a villa next to the pool.

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
