Guest Comments

We had a very relaxing time and would like to visit again. Auckland

Summerlee was a superb place for a group to stay while playing golf at Cape Kidnappers. It felt like a private home, stunning decor yet homely and cosy with the open fires and central heating. We would love to return. Australia

We recently experienced a delightful stay at Summerlee. For those wanting privacy in a stunning location this property ticks all the boxes. Wellington

This beautifully presented property offered every facility possible to help make our stay memorable, we were able to have a wonderful catered family dinner in the dining room, after a game of tennis on the all weather court, a swim to finish off, a terrific evening and stay. A magic place. Australia

This property has everything, thanks for allowing us to share it with you. Auckland
