“Beautiful house with all you need.”
Reviewed 13 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

We arrived in the dark but could immediately see the fine wood decks and floors to the house. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the shared kitchen, dining and living rooms were well appointed. Breakfast was left in the fridge Nd included bread, jams, juice and milk for cereals. A beautiful property and one I would recommend.

“Delightful B&B Ideally Located”
Reviewed 31 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

The Summit is one of three accommodation options offered by very pleasant and helpful owners Helen and John. A beautiful house in a stunning environment at the top of Atherton, fully equipped if you wanted to self cater. A fabulous location to use as a base to tour around the Atherton Tablelands. I thought it looked lovely online and would suit our needs but was very delighted that it exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended.

“Peaceful and relaxing”
Reviewed 13 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Staying at this location was such a blessing to us. John and Helen were incredibly understanding and generous. After realizing we had misunderstood the shared kitchen/living and pool areas, they kindly and very generously offered another solution which catered beautifully for our needs. We would highly recommend both the Summit retreat apartment and the Summit B&B. We ended up in the B&B for one night and had a brief hello in the kitchen with the other people in the morning as we were about to leave, otherwise we didn't notice there were others even there.
Thanks John and Helen for creating such a wonderful space for others to be blessed in, you have done and continue to do a great job! Our hope is you also get time and opportunities to retreat and enjoy time together!

“A very relaxing place”
Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We stayed for almost a week and were happy with our choice. The place is very clean, laid back and comfortable once you get the hang of everything. The big 10 yr old Queenslander is a great building. The interconnection with the other 2 parties that can potentially stay there at the same time is generally limited to morning breakfast, but we were mostly on our own. Would we come back? Yes definitely.
Thanks Helen and John for your tips. We enjoyed our stay in Atherton.

A nice place with lots of space, suited two families, a total of eight all up. The pool was inviting and the deck had amazing views. It made a great base station to visit the surrounding areas and sights.

There are a lot of rules to follow, and when given the keys and told its a good idea to have your kids in bed by seven because its a residential area didnt sit well us from the start. The washing machine was broken when we arrived and also cost $5 per load, also the owners come daily to do thier laundry as well which really invades your privacy of your stay. In this day and age WiFi is generally free, but nope you also had to pay for this as well, not a really big deal, but most hotels and B&B's now provide this free of charge. Make sure the lights are off, don't climb on the rocks around the pool(impossible with kids 4 children under 10), rules, rules and more rules dont put stayers at ease when trying to relax on holiday.
Even a simple dvd player was missing to be able to watch movies. The reception was also a bit scetchy. The owners really need to catch up with what really should be offered at this price.
Would not go back and would not recomend to others as there are to many rules to follow.

Very sorry to hear that you don't like rules and maybe your group needs to get together and provide a balanced overview of your stay as Donna & Julie said that they were happy at check out.

What we find most distressing is that a number of things are not mentioned in your review. A phone call after dark to tell us that you have locked your keys in the room which we happily attended to, when one of your little ones vomited & soiled our bed linen we happily replaced the linen and washed, at no cost to you, as well as all your towels, the bed spread as well as the sheets.

The washing machine had broken down and we were waiting for parts from the Gold Coast, the joy of living in a regional area, we did not or could not use it, once we had the part we then fixed the machine immediately when you were out. Donna who was in your group was very understanding and thanked us for our efforts & understood that it was not our fault. We said we would not come back to respect her privacy and she said that it was quite all right & absolutely not a problem.

Guests safety and insurance is a huge part of modern day society, we do our best but I'm sure you would want your kids to be covered if they do have an accident, we certainly need to be covered and be responsible landlords in our warnings. Our rules are there for a reason and they are not "over the top". We also "ask" for your help, nothing more than that, if you don't want to help us maintain the standard for all future guests, then just tell us.

Please don't tell us how to run our business, we attempt to please all our guests and when they are disappointed it affects us deeply, you only need to communicate with us and we will try to resolve any issues you have, which members of your group did do as mentioned above.

cheers john & helen
