The term luxury is used freely to describe a lot of New Zealand accommodation any from our two week experience in the south island most are not luxurious BUT the Sumner Re Treat IS true luxury.

We were greeted in a friendly manner and said we were looking for a room for the night. We were immediately shown the only room available before we booked in and we could not have been happier. Thankfully we stayed two nights here and enjoyed this lovely beachside suburb of Christchurch.

The apartment is overall a large luxurious one, it has a separate lounge, a full kitchen, a separate bedroom a lovely deck and all the mod cons including decent wine glasses. We utilised the in built laundry to catch up on our washing. Undercover parking downstairs.

Its located near the beach and some good restaurants. Easy walking to everything including the beach in this small but delightful place. would I stay here again? YES.
