We stayed at Waimarie Apartment 1 for 10 glorious days. Sharon and Peter were fabulous hosts from the moment we were picked up. The home made slice, bread and eggs in the fridge were much appreciated as was the cold bottle of bubbles! The apartment was furnished in true island style, modern and very clean with a fabulous bathroom. Lovely deck on the front was great for a good read and views and the private rear deck got lots of lovely sun. Mount Gower is a feature of Lord Howe Island and you can well and truly see it from Waimarie's gorgeous garden and bbq areas. All very private. A great ride into town on the bikes too!

We just came back from an amazing week over at Lord Howe Island staying at Waimarie Apartments. I would 100% recommend them for your stay at LH. (1) The apartment is amazing - nicely decorated and spacious. You have your own private bbq area with views to the mountains and sunset and a separate private outdoors coffee lounge on the back which is also pretty cool. All the linen, towels and kitchen stuff is first class. (2) The area is very secluded and private - while a very short 8 minute stroll into town. You can definitely get closer to town but Waimarie gives you a huge space in front of your apartment to enjoy without feeling the claustrophobia of other resorts. The breeze is great and very silent at night. (3) The hosts are the best! Drove us into town as much as needed, gave us good recommendations on what to do, welcomed us with a bottle of bubbles and roasted coffee. Don't think it twice. If you can find availability make sure you book it or it may be too late! :))

It is inspiring to witness Sharon and Peter’s dedication to Waimarie. As returned guests, we immediately felt at home. Their warm, relational manner and commitment to improvement and growth is apparent. We highly appreciate the chats, laughs and generosity. Waimarie provides the perfect balance: Ideal distance from the town centre to the stunning southern beaches Sparkling clean, totally self contained with many additional luxuries Opportunity to cook, bbq or be driven to cafes, clubs and restaurants Quiet, private yet interesting with superb water views and the added entertainment of sheep and planes. We already miss Waimarie, stunning Lord Howe Island and being with family who stayed in the ajoining apartment. The decision to book for a fortnight was an excellent one and we already anticipate our return visit - fingers crossed it’s even longer! Stuart & Helen 🐝

Waimarie Apartments are the perfect place to stay on Lord Howe Island. The accommodation at Waimarie certainly adds to the magic of the Lord Howe Island experience. There are spectacular views of nearby mountains Lidgebird and Gower, and the sun setting over the lagoon is a photographer's delight. Sharon and Peter are superb and friendly hosts. Their attention to detail and generous and thoughtful hospitality left nothing to be desired. As noted in other reviews, everything has been thought of with the luxury inclusions: the starter breakfast provisions, bottle of French bubbly, personal bbq, quality skin products (soaps, body lotions, moisturiser, shampoo), superior linens, etc. A stress free, relaxing and chilled holiday, with plenty of adventure if that's your choice! We stayed 2 weeks and will definitely be back. Peter and Jo

Oh my! we were so lucky to find a magnificent view, a sparklingly clean apartment and THE most comfortable bed. I could go on...I will...the interiors were understated and so well resolved...quality in all things - the coffee, the teas, the butter, the soaps, shampoos and moisturiser generous and so useable ...even the pack of cards and the cups we drank from! Our hosts, Sharon and Peter, really were hosts in their own low key island way enabling us to have an outstanding time in our 6 days due to their local tips. I love snorkeling, swimming, coral and fish and saw the best I have seen in years. We walked to the south end of the island and I went out to Balls Pyramid (so wild and spectacular), in the open sea with a capable local captain. Amazed when I saw myself in the mirror back in Sydney, I was so rested and well. We can't wait to go back. If it is your first visit to the island, you will love it - a south seas paradise full of palms, greenery and unique species. The apartment matched the island - high quality, well managed and friendly - with an eye to detail. One of the best outlooks from the accommodation choices on the Island. Proximity to the airport is actually a bonus enabling spectacular views of the mountainous rock. The small planes are very infrequent and add to the interest of the area. All in all - one of our best holidays - and so close to Sydney - why didn't we visit years ago? .
