DO NOT CHOOSE THIS AS A WEDDING VENUE!! The manager doubled the venue fee after we had signed a contract and paid a 25% deposit, even though there was NO clause in the contract to say it was subject to change. This would have amounted to an extra $1200. We felt completely taken advantage of and were sure there would...

The Summerhouse hosts many happy wedding celebrations - we are sorry on this occasion you decided to choose another venue and cancel with us four weeks from your wedding date. A refund of your deposit was offered if your dates could be re booked, but at short notice this can be difficult. Please note The Department of Fair Trading have...

We were so pleased with our Superior Suite at The Summerhouse that included a private spa, private balcony with amazing expansive view, the bed was from heaven; our Superior suite ambiance was unlike anything else I've experienced. A king room with a Moroccan style that's truly special. Service was perfect, the staff were friendly yet discreet. We stayed for a...

My boyfriend booked the Summerhouse for our overnight stay in Byron to show my parents the area who are visiting us from Scotland. On arrival we were greeted by Ailsa who showed us around the house and to our two rooms. My parents stayed in the deluxe room and we stayed in the luxury. Both very clean and spacious with...

We had a great time at the Summerhouse! Mark, the Manager, is very friendly and made sure everything was taken care of. The place itself is gorgeous... beautiful big kitchen and balcony that overlooks the bay. It's a $18 taxi into town but that didn't prove to be an issue for us. Really friendly staff that made us some delicious...

We stayed in the luxury room at the Summerhouse for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. The house is about 10 minutes drive from Byron town, so close enough to head back into town for dinner or to the beach for the day. Just keep in mind its a little too far to walk so a cab will cost...

I arrived late at night after a day-long ordeal with Jetstar bungles and consequential stuff up with a hire car. I was stressed to the max. The owner Mark had a bottle of complimentary champagne on ice in no time and duck pancakes delivered to my room. They were the best duck pancakes I've ever tasted! The room was quite...

The Summerhouse in Byron Bay has stolen our hearts. My husband and I have just spent four days in this little piece of heaven.

The Summerhouse is an extraordinary piece of paradise in the hills above Byron Bay. If you want the serenity of the countryside with the calmness of ocean views, only a few kilometres from good food and coffee, then you need to stay at The Summerhouse. Well-appointed furnishings, private bathrooms per suite, a chef to cook your breakfast, solar heated pool,...
