A huge thank you to Sharon & Peter for our wonderful stay at Waimarie in early May - perfect in every way! My husband & I stayed 6 nights in Apartment 2 (there is only 2 one bedroom apartments at Waimarie, both recently re-novated/re-decorated). The apartment was spotless, really comfortable, quiet and really does has everything you need. It is all thought of - beach towels & beach blankets, backpack, yoga mat, water bottle, umbrella, cloths line and hand washing facility (laundry use on request). Books, magazines, Satellite TV, DVD's, wifi which worked very well. The luxury items such as that wonderful linen bedding, the quality bathroom towels and products plus our welcome items of champagne/beer, home made biscuits, sourdough bread, eggs and the great fresh coffee just add to the overall fabulous experience. Waimarie is in a slightly elevated position, so the views toward the lagoon from the verandah and bedroom are great and sitting in the garden seat over-looking the airport runway to the mountains was just picture perfect. Yes, you can watch the odd plane come in - being near the airport is a novelty bonus here, certainly not a hindrance! From what I could see when researching accommodation and then travelling around the island, Waimarie is amongst just a few places to stay on LHI with views. So if you are like us and like to come home from a days adventure and sit back with a quiet drink and a beautiful, unique view this is definitely the apartment for you on LHI! Sharon & Peter are unobtrusive, but there when you need, assisting us with a tour & grocery shopping on arrival, dropping us off to get our bikes for our stay, daily activity info sheets & transport to dinner at night. Waimarie is an easy ride or walk into the "town centre" and really a great location to go north or south from on the island. We were out bush walking, snorkelling or fishing every day and it was never a problem getting to or from Waimarie under bike or leg power! - (we are both 50). We truly cannot fault our stay - having planned to go to LHI for about 5 yrs, staying at Waimarie was so relaxing, value for money and our best decision. It in fact, enhanced our stay and activities on this beautiful part of Australia.
