Location

Summerlee is located next door to Cape Kidnappers Golf Course, The Farm - a 5,000 acre farm which includes the world famous gannet colony and several miles of spectacular Hawkes Bay coastline. While totally private and secluded Summerlee is just 25 minutes from Napier Airport, 15 minutes from the city of Hastings, Havelock North and many of Hawkes Bay's best wineries and attractions including half a dozen of them right at your doorstep. 

Attractions

Wonderful attractions are right on your doorstep. Restaurants and wineries, a famous surf break and fishing. Gannet Safaris overland leave regularly for Cape Kidnappers at the bottom of the driveway. This offers the chance to drive over the station and experience the spectacular cliff-top views including the farm and golf course before arriving at the Gannet Colony, this trip can be experienced year round. A little further are other significant wineries and restaurants. 20 minutes away is Napier, a city destroyed and rebuilt after an earthquake in 1931. It is now recognised as one of the most significant Art deco cities in the world. Beautiful long ocean swimming beaches are a 30 minute drive to the south. Golf courses, trout fishing rivers, paragliding and hot air ballooning are all close by. A full compendium to local restaurants and attractions will be in the retreat when you arrive, we also offer a wide range of activities that we are more than happy to arrange on your behalf.
