The owners and staff are friendly and accessible. The rooms are clean and comfortable - we stayed in the family room with our 3 kids and it was a really good set up - easy to relax and enjoy the beautiful Lord Howe Island. The location on the island is excellent with easy walking/riding access to town and lots of walks and beaches. The pool is lovely and the green space and BBQs near the rooms is also wonderful for relaxing. The owners really go out of their way to make you feel at home and like nothing is too much bother - their friendliness and helpfulness is a big part of the appeal. Highly recommend.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Kerry & Keith for making our trip so memorable. From the initial pickup from the airport they went above and beyond throughout our stay to make it was as memorable as could be. With a huge backlog of tourists unable to leave and with Sydney experiencing floods; Kerry made sure we were inconvenienced as minimal as possible including contacting Qantas on our behalf to ensure we were allocated on the next available flight home and even reaching out to other locals on the island to source baby formula for our 10 month old. The accommodation had a great family vibe with the majority of rooms opening up onto a communal grass area with BBQ’s. Oceanview also has a lot added extra’s that you cant find anywhere else including their own beach shack, a pool and games room containing table tennis and pool table. I was also told that they will have their own restaurant and bar on site in the next few months which will be another home run. Couldn’t recommend this place anymore highly!

Basic level of accommodation. Rooms are clean and tidy but the walls are paper thin. Snoring from next door kept us awake at night! Within easy walking distance of the main part of town. Customer service provided by Kellie can’t be faulted. She went out of her way to assist with dinner bookings etc. PS. Don’t be fooled by the name …. there are no ocean views!

we stayed here for a week while diving. the location is fantastic - very central with a quick shortcut to the store/cafe/restaurant of town through the vacant lot with resident bull Mabo. Plus its a reasonable walk to the stunning Ned's beach (back beach) & the main town beach - spectacular! the family owner/operators are all very friendly, helpful & informative - nothing was an issue. we didnt hire a car so walked everywhere - i would recommend perhaps hiring a car for a couple of days to provide some greater ability to investigate the island. huge tip: reserve your dinners at least a week in advance. places have rotating nights they serve so everyone tries to book in. your accommodation will offer shuttle service there & the venue will shuttle you back. there are 2 stores on the island - so plan snacks/small meals. make sure you pack comfy shoes & socks as you will be doing a lot of walking! the accommodation itself was perfect. comfy QS bed with 2 singles with a well stocked kitchenette & large fridge. The ensuite was a bit pokey but suffice. plenty of powerpoints. great BBQs in the lovely gardens. airport shuttle provided. communal laundry which was great - only thing i would suggest are clothes racks so people can dry their clothes in their rooms/under the eaves & not on the main washing lines to avoid overnight dew & take up room washing line room for the operators to do sheets/towels. we were disappointed the boat wasnt available for us to go fishing (which was the main reason we picked this venue) & the bikes/kayaks were also not available. luckily we were diving everyday & would recommend making contact with your accommodation provider in advance to confirm extras. 2 things i really liked: 1) the main clubhouse building with games, table tennis, tennis court & swimming pool 2) the transit room: where you could store your packed luggage on the day of your departure & then go explorng - with 2 bathrooms to have last minute showers before you depart - what a wonderful idea!!

We loved our stay at Ocean View and found Kevin and Sue to be wonderful, helpful hosts. Ocean View is in a perfect location - we rode our bikes everywhere but just down the bottom of the hill we could jump off the jetty into the turquoise waters of the lagoon. Ocean View has a boat shed and we took a kayak and paddled out to Blackburn Island, used snorkelling gear over at the amazing, pristine Ned's Beach, and went on many walks around the island. Kevin will help you book restaurants, but get in early and book ahead your meals out as well as all your trips, because we found out too late we were a little slow in booking ahead for things like trips out to Ball's Pyramid. All in all, Ocean View is great for a family holiday, you won't want to leave.

We made a last minute booking and stayed 6 nights in a studio apartment at Oceanview. We had a great time here. It is really well located, the apartment is incredibly clean and the gardens/BBQ (cleaned and spotless every day!)/pool were the highlight. Most of the guests return again and again, and it is perfect for a family holiday. Kevin and the rest of the family are clearly proud of and take excellent care of the estate. Also loved talking about the history of Lord Howe Island and how settlement came about. Thanks for all the lifts and conversations.

We stayed for a week at Ocean View Apartments in early March 2020 (before COVID-19). We have stayed here many times before and it is like coming to the island and staying with family (and not just because we have been before). The Wilson family own and run the place and have been there for generations. You could not have friendlier hosts. They are always very attentive to your needs and helpful with anything that you need done.

I really enjoyed Ocean View, it's in a good position, with Old Settlement Beach just 5 mins walk through a shady street, the “main street” and Lagoon Beach 5 mins in the other direction! Kelly took good care of us during our stay, our first visit, I'm sure it won't be our last. Return visitors were booked in all around us. All was spotlessly clean, the ceiling fans kept everything comfortable, it's a tidy family friendly place. The transit room showers meant I was able to squeeze in a last minute swim at Lagoon Beach. Some say it's facade and lobby/games room is “dated” but I'm actually relieved to read in another review that it's somewhat heritage protected. I'd *love* to see the bar areas functioning again one day, be horrified if they ever “gutted”/renovated the place... It's got what just can not be bought nowadays, early 20th century bones, with a big dose of “mid-century modern” vintage original...I love *60's everything*/tiki bars, so my eyes almost fell out of my head when I saw it! SO great! I'm sure they'll “take good care of the old girl” but I hope they keep her *intact*, with the bench seats, sea weed bar, driftwood bar etc, she's not dated at all... she's "Vintage", just enjoying a beauty kip while everyone else gets the vicious facelifts! I'm sure Driftwood must have hosted some ace soireés in the 60's and 70's, with the air boats landing in the lagoon... you can't buy that kind of history. So pleeeeaase DON'T renovate, it's a sleeping treasure :)
