Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We booked the 2 bedroom apartment as we wanted a little treat for our birthdays and wedding anniversaries. It is just awesome! Very spacious and clean. Fully equipped kitchen and laundry, fabulous shower. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for breakfast which was was a lovely touch. The TV has souround sound, Netflix and you can also chrome cast to it from your phone. Chris is a lovely host and we hope to be back again soon. Sumner re treat and sumner village is such a great place for a holiday. We loved our stay

I am writing this review from the sofa of apartment 6 the family apartment. We are sadly only here for one night.

This is a fantastic place to stay, beautiful furnishings and facilities. The pool and spa area is to die for a perfect place to relax.

Perfectly located for a very relaxing stay with everything you need locally.

We will return! Might book the next visit now!

We stayed in the studio apartment. It was clean, comfortable and modern. The separate kitchen was a bonus for a studio. The apartments are well located in Sumner, with plenty of excellent dining options and a small supermarket in walking distance. Parking for the studio is on the street but there are plenty of free parks across the road. The only downside for us was that the bed felt a little small for two - I think it was a double and we're used to a king. The hosts were friendly and couldn't have been more accommodating. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Sumner Property for 2 nights, we were a group of 3 couples with 2 kids each. Property is great for kids, the apartments are big and spacious. Everything in the apartment, from cutlery to furniture is modern and chic. Location is great, you can walk to some good local restaurants and the beach is 100m away. We had a great time and will be back again.

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.

Luxury does not fully describe. What a treat awaited us with bottle of wine and lovely continental breakfast.
Spacious living areas, 2 bathrooms and 2 large bedrooms both opening out to balcony. Close to amazing eatery's in the heart of Sumner, close to the beach and really nice shopping. Fantastic for families. When we visit Christchurch again, this will be the only place we stay. Very accommodating and friendly hosts.
Very highly recommended.

What a wonderful place to stay, we just stayed the one night as we had a wedding in Sumner, wish we had had more time to use all facilities. Full sized apartment, wirh everything you would need for short or long stay, was more than we expected, its like a home away from home, will definitely be booking again to stay.

We highly recommend Sumer Re Treat. We stayed here for only 3 nights, but felt really at home with Chris from the moment she picked us up from the airport.
She was really helpful in getting around and we enjoyed the home-made scones we got as an friendly welcome.
The apartment is clean and nicely decorated.
We'd love to return to this place if we are in Christchurch again!

Due to a good bus service, you don't need a car to see a lot of Christchurch. (Bus stop in front of the building.)
Several good restaurants nearby, you don't have to prepare your own meals if you don't want to ;-)

We wanted to stay on the 26th of december for one night at the Sumner Re Treat. We saw on tripadvisor that 4 Apartments were available. So we made an extra drive to sumner. As we arrived there in the later afternoon we saw the vacancy sign outside. Happy about that we rang the door. A lady came out and we asked for one room. She said that there are no rooms available. I said that online are 4 rooms available. She explained that she didn't know how to close these rooms. Then I asked about the vacancy sign. She said that this shouldn't be there. As we had no choice, we left but tried once more to call the number on the sign. The same lady answerd the phone and said that nothing is available and that the owner is currently on vacation. The vacancy sign was still there. We drove back to the city and found a nice motel there.

Good morning Berlin Roadrunner, I am so very sorry my staff member did not have the apartment cleaned earlier in the day. We had left to go on holiday first thing in the morning and she did not arrive at Sumner Re Treat until 5pm, which was far too late. I have spoken to her about this situation and I am sure it will not happen again. Once again my sincere apologies. Regards Chris (Manager)
