Classic beachhouse-style holiday living in sunny seclusion, just metres from the natural wonderland that is Ned's Beach. Private and sheltered yet right in the heart of the settlement area, Howeana is also only 300 metres from the pristine waters of the Lagoon and the stunning panorama of Mts Lidgbird and Gower. This boutique property sets a new benchmark in self-contained accommodation in that it ticks all the boxes of comfort, style, space AND location. The two apartments, designed by architect Col Griffiths, are fully self-contained with quality furnishings and appliances, sundecks, gas BBQs and outdoor settings. Special features include ensuite bathrooms, well equipped kitchens and private laundries. A perfect hideaway for couples looking to escape, the apartments can be booked individually, or together for families and groups of friends.

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 stayed for 1 week at Howeana and could not fault a single thing. From the time we met Anne at the airport we knew we were going to have a great time. Her and Tim’s personalities were perfect for the hospitality industry. Everything was perfect from the location of Howeana and the quality inclusions down to the fact that nothing was too much trouble. Anne had great recommendations for dinner and tours. When we do go back to Lord Howe we would not even consider staying anywhere else and have recommended Howeana to other friends already. A 5 star holiday due to Anne and Tim.

The main reason for this review is to pass on some feedback about Howeana Apartments and our hosts Ann and Tim. Everything about their apartments and the care they take of their guests is exceptional. The apartments are just perfect for a couple, beautifully presented and in an excellent location. Ann is very considerate, she had a restaurant booked for us for our first night, and she checked each day to make sure we had everything we needed. We don't normally do reviews, but on this occassion we feel that the accommodation service was so exceptional that we should pass on our thoughts.

I finally persuaded my wife to visit Lord Howe and picked this apartment on the advice of our travel agent, and a look at online reviews. We stayed in unit 1, which is a VERY spacious apartment on 2 levels, the bedroom, or should I say suite upstairs with full bathroom. Living dining kitchen downstairs, another bathroom. The fitout and appointments were first class and spotless, and the location gave a sense of being totally isolated on a tropical island. Internet, wifi, TV, stereo, Bose bluetooth speaker, all there. On arrival Ann and Tim met us and en route took us to the store for some basic provisions including breakfast cereal and wine. They were very obliging and considerate hosts throughout. The unit came with a big bowl of fruit (mandarins, bananas), light and full cream milk, coffee anyway you like it. We even had Ann arrive one day with a bunch of local bananas, way better than the usual supermarket fare. The kitchen is fully fitted including dishwasher. The only issue we had, and this might not matter to some others, is that the bedroom curtains left gaps that allow early sun in, waking us up much earlier than normal. It's less than 10 mins walk to the village, Anchorage Restaurant was good, burgers at Thompson's store outstanding. Some resorts include 3 Meals a day, talking to some of their guests I think they found it a bit too much, I think a self-catering option much better. We had a delightful time and wouldn't hesitate to return. Don't miss Dave and Glenys' boat trip to Ball's Pyramid, spectacular. Be warned that transport costs mean Island food is expensive.

Wow - we were so impressed when we arrived. Annie and Tim were away in Sydney but Chilli and Brad met us at the airport and after a quick tour of the island and shops, we arrived at the apartment. It is tucked away in lush foliage but still close to the road. It has to be the best spot on the island - on the flat, close to Neds beach, Thompsons store and The Anchorage cafe. Close enough to walk or you can easily ride bikes without any effort. It is also sheltered from most winds. The apartment was modern and had a beachy feel with lovely furnishings - a great comfy king bed, beautiful bathroom and the kitchen was well appointed. We loved the little extras - milk in the fridge, fresh eggs, coffee pods, beach towels, torches and umbrellas (which we needed on Melbourne Cup day - it poured). Annie rang us twice to check on our stay which was nice. We are sorry we did not get to meet them. Maybe next time...

We had two weeks on Lord Howe Island and due to availability had to swap accommodation half way through. Howeana Apartments was our second accommodation and whilst both were excellent the hospitality at Howeana was superb! The apartment was well fitted out with everything that you needed and like all accommodation on Lord Howe the owners would drive you to the restaurant in the evening if you wished.

Howeana apartments offer the ultimate in comfort, luxury and tranquility in a secluded tropical setting. The location is perfect being in a flat area and close to the lagoon for swimming, kayaking and tours and just a very short walk to Ned's beach on the eastern side where you can snorkel, feed the fish and watch Mutton birds return to their burrows in the evening. Nearby is the excellent Anchorage restaurant/bakery, Thompson's store and the Post Office. We stayed in Apartment 2 which was spotless with top quality furnishings and decor. There is television, DVDs, books and board games plus free wifi. There is a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. You can have meals on the veranda, cook a meal on the BBQ or just relax on the our door lounges and watch the delightful bird life. We really appreciated the extra touches such as daily servicing, the coffee machine with a variety of coffee pods, the supply of milk and fruit, beach towels, umbrellas, torches and back packs. Annie was the perfect host, so friendly and helpful. We really appreciated the effort she went to to get us on an earlier flight when our afternoon flight was cancelled. We had a wonderful stay at Howeana and hope to return this very special place again before too long.

Before our visit to Lord Howe we had toyed with the pros and cons of self catering or fully catered options and settled on some self catered serviced luxury in Howeana. We couldn't have been happier with our choice! We stayed in Apartment 1, beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean, very comfortable king bed and everything we could need! On arrival the lovely Anne met us and showed us around the "town" and then drove us to Howeana then back to Joy's shop to collect supplies ( which she dropped back to the apartment while we rented our bikes for the week). Howeana is superbly located a very short (flat) stroll from both Ned's beach and the Lagoon to ensure that a protected beach is just a few hundred metres away. Easy 5 minute walk to the lovely Anchorage restaurant/cafe/bakery, Thompson's store and the tours leaving the lagoon. Anne was the perfect host and a fabulous help in organising restaurant bookings and tours, whilst being totally unobtrusive. Either she or Tim kindly drove us to our restaurant each night who in turn drove us home after some amazing meals in great locations. Lord Howe Island is spectacular place to visit and Anne and Tim's hospitalty made everything about our stay very special. Thank you!

My husband Geoff and I loved Howeana. Beautifully appointed, spotless and private. And in a handy spot. Anne and Tim were perfect hosts, very helpful and friendly but not intrusive. We hired bikes for the week, which was good fun. Lord Howe Island was so pretty, peaceful and relaxing. Had a fabulous time. And will stay at Howeana if we get to go there again. Big thanks Anne & Tim. From Julie
