This is an outstanding lodge. Small (only 9 suites), intimate, friendly, beautifully positioned, thoughtfully built and furnished. Amazing views to Mt Lindgbird and Mt Gower and out to sea, yet super private, surrounded by palms and birds. Superb breakfasts and dinners (including

From the moment Libby greeted us at the Lord Howe Island airport and Mark delivered our luggage to our suite, we felt right at home on this tiny, lush island. As we stepped out onto our deck, we were surrounded by palm trees, mountain and sea! And this was just the beginning. Wit

The view from our upstairs bedroom - could see the mountain and the sea every day - bliss!
I'm thinking about coming to Lord Howe for the occasion of a 30th wedding. My target dates are three nights, from November 3rd to November 5th (the latter being the actual anniversary date) 2018. But on the Trip Advisor website I'm advised there is "no availability" on those dates. Is this correct? Thanks, Don (Adelaide)
Sometimes the info is incorrect best to call them direct

Do you have any 5 day block availability between April 1-17 2017,? We are looking at a family holiday with up to 12 guests. Regards, Kathy.
Dear Kathy, thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, we are unable to assist with a booking of this size or duration over your requested dates. Should they be flexible, the lodge has availability in May and June which may suit. Please let us know if we can consider a tailored booking for you. We'd love to welcome you and your family for a mid-year retreat.

Are you booked out from March 31st until April 5th 2017 for a couple? Kerrie
Dear Kerrie Thank you for your enquiry. Alas, Capella is fully booked over your requested dates, March 31 – April 5, 2017. Should your dates be flexible, we can offer the Makambo Loft for five nights from April 4th, or a Lagoon Loft from April 5th for four nights. Should either option be of interest, please contact the Baillie Lodges reservations team for further assistance. We hope to have opportunity to welcome you soon!

I am planning a 4 week trip to Australia and would like to include a stay at Capella Lodge but since I'll have more luggage than the restriction noted for flights to Lord Howe Island, I don't know what to do. Any thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
Hi Elizabeth, thanks for your interest in Capella Lodge. The baggage limit to Lord Howe Island is 14kg as you will have discovered. However, an additional 9kg (max) may be checked in (must be in a separate bag) but it will be treated as excess - but not charged as such. Uplift of the second bag will be dependent on the weight of the aircraft on the day. As such, it may follow on another flight. Please note, you may also take a carry on bag such as back pack which allows for additional storage. For additional luggage, we suggest storing baggage at Sydney airport where a number of operators offer this service. Hope this is helpful and we have opportunity to welcome you to Capella soon.
