Summerhills retreat Byron bay was our favourite place in Oz! What a great place to relax and unwind. Excellent facilities and grounds. Loved our cabana pool-side cabin. Francesca booked us some of the best massages. We loved the complementary bottle of sparkling wine on arrival but what we loved the most was the location – the spectacular mountain view right...

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...

The big spa bath and big...

Thank you for helping to make our experience this weekend one to remember for the rest of our lives! Everyone would benefit from your retreat... hiding away in the mountains in a town full of more passion and love than Paris or Rome. I hope our paths cross again.

The view from the pool deck never ceases to relax me. I spent some time there each day just staring at the lush green hills. In the morning, an early walk through the macadamia trees is a must, leading to an open space with a gigantic Morton bay fig rumoured to be 280 years old! Francesca as usual was the...

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.
