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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Motorcycling around the South Island we were confronted by an accommodation shortage - it seemed everything was booked out. However a call to Summerspring saved us as they had a cancellation. Talk about falling on our feet, this place is a patch of paradise. Absolute beachfront away from the madding crowd. The room is spacious, impeccably clean, the bed the best we’ve had on our journey & of course that view!
Wonderful hosts, such a shame we had only the one night.
By the way - took their advice for dinner at The Mussel Inn & it was fantastic, great food, beer & wine in a garden setting.
Highly recommend!

Panoramic views from comfortable room with kitchenette and very well-appointed bathroom. Lovely walk to beach and in easy driving distance of Takaka (very nice take-away fish and chips). Laundry facilities much appreciated. Only downside was breakfast - we wished we hadn’t opted to pay for this as an extra (tinned fruit and rather soggy croissants).

After traveling around the South Island Summerspring was near the end of our stay. But we saved the best til last. The setting is THE BEST. Lovely grounds. The beach at the end of the garden. Secluded Hot Tub. The hosts were 1st class nothing too much trouble. The room fantastic with everything we needed. Just wish we were staying more than 1 night.

This accommodation changed its name to Summerspring Beach Front Accommodation.

Seeing is believing. The description said that they have WIFI and a hot tub. However, we found out that a lot of things were not working. No signal on TV. No WIFI. No reception to access to internet using own data either. We only needed to have a nice hot swim and chill out. We are not going to use kitchen as we would go out next day pretty much all day for doing things.

You don't know it until you booked it and got there. No refund even though the owner agreed it over the phone when my husband talked to her. The owner was not even there to help us. Her mother asked me about my credit card's 3 digit numbers so that her son could process the payment from somewhere else...(?!).

Although there are good reviews, they did not work for us. We are not picky tourists. We used Booking.com and expected what it would be for $510 for 2 nights. This is the first time ever that we left the accommodation soon after the arrival and decided not to stay.

We did not use TripAdvisor to book this accommodation, but thought this experience should be shared by people.

Large, comfortable airy room overlooking the ocean with a very comfortable bed - ideal for relaxing and rejeuvenating and some ‘me time’. Did’nt get to use the hot tub but will next time. The unexpected bonus was the dark sky and the myriad of stars - worth a visit alone.

We had a brilliant time at Summerspring in Feb 2018 on our tour of South Island. The place is is beautiful , we walked on the beach and then used the jacuzzi to ease the muscles - looking at the sea and the setting sun. Great memories ! Buddha was very welcoming and helpful, and told us about local things to do. On his recommendation we ate at the excellent Mussell Inn (a few km by car) and the even better Captain Cooker beer (with manuka tips- lovely). A truly memorable stay and a fantastic location with a nice family - you cant get better. One of the highlights of our trip

Nice relaxing place for a get away. The views from the room are amazing. Feels like a home away from home. lovely, friendly and kind people and just a all round nice place to be. So close to the beach. Bed so comfortable! Not far from Takaka and around 15minutes to Collingwood.

Spacious and well appointed. Friendly and helpful hosts. The bed is comfortable and the views are amazing. Situated a few minutes' drive from Takaka and right on the beachfront. Highly recommended and we will come back!

What a stunning place! We had both rooms and they have spectacular views and are beautifully and thoughtfully appointed. Friendly accommodating hosts. Highly HIGHLY recommend this gorgeous place. Note though there are limited options in terms of restaurants or food options nearby especially at night - you'll need to drive, and then only a few options available. But...this is part of the charm and well worth it! Can't wait to go back.
