On arrival we were pleasantly surprised just how close to Byron Bay the Summerhouse is located, a mere 5-10 minute drive to the main shops.
Our first thought when walking in and seeing the breathtaking sweeping views of Byron Bay over the infinity swimming pool was wow! What a perfect place that would be to have a wedding ceremony and reception. As the living area and kitchen ate communal be prepared to meet a few new people doing their thing. Speaking of weddings we had the pleasure of meeting Jamie Eastgate, who is one of Brisbanes top Celebrants and was staying for the weekend as he had Weddings to perform in Byron Bay so by complete chance that's our Byron Bay wedding ceremony, reception and Celebrant all sorted!
Like other reviewers we were a little surprised to be charged an extra $10 for pancakes, we were fine with this however it would have been easier for them just to include this in the room charge.
That said, the breakfast was plentiful, filling and healthy with a choice of museli's that you could sprinkle fresh fruit on top of as well as a dollop of yougart. The coffee was excellent and the lovely lady that served us offered us a second cup which we gladly accepted.
In summary while a little on the pricey side, this would be the perfect place to book out all 4 of the rooms and have a weekend away with friends/ family or hold your wedding or function, without the 2-3 week minimum booking period that many of the Byron Bay holiday homes have in place.
Once again the view is stunning!
