What a wonderfull 6 days ! Our only regret was not booking a few more days to do everything and still sit and soak up the palpable friendly culture of this very unique island.
It started with Sharon doing the meet and greet in a relaxed and informative style. From there our expectations were exceeded which is no mean feat these days. The apartment was just delightful and our whole trip was full of fun, friendliness, adventure and peace. Thank you Peter and Sharon. We have already sung your praises to our family and friends! 👋 😊 we did a mini skit but can’t figure out how to upload It , so a couple pics instead 😎👍 I will try to email our clip. 😀

    This was our first visit to Lord Howe Island and it couldn't have been better. Sharon and Peter are the perfect hosts. Peter met us at the airport and showed us all around the island - giving us the rundown on where to eat, what to see, and he was a wealth of knowledge on history and interesting tidbits. The apartment itself is just perfect. We couln't think of a single thing that would have made our stay more comfortable and relaxing. It's all the little touches Sharon has given the place that makes it so special and we felt at home right away. Now that we've stayed at Waimarie we couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on Lord Howe Island. It's the perfect base to explore this absolute stunning piece of paradise. Thanks Sharon and Peter for making us feel so welcome.

    This review is not about staying at Waimarie, but how Sharon helped us with a surprise welcome gift for our parents, who are celebrating both of their birthdays with a first time visit to Lord Howe.
    Sharon was kind enough to arrange a lovely bottle of red wine as well as enormous fruit and deli platters on their arrival.
    Things didn’t go quite to the original plan, as they were delayed in Sydney for 2 nights, but this didn’t prevent Sharon from producing beautiful, fresh platters for them.
    Thanks Sharon for the special effort and giving Fran and Dennis the perfect start to their stay with you.

    We could not recommend Waimarie high enough. Sharon and Peter are such wonderful,thoughtful hosts who made our stay on the island so enjoyable. Baked goods and a bottle of bubbles on arrival,so beautifully presented with the most magnificent views.
    Thank you Sharon and Peter for your hospitality, we hope to be back soon.

    Well all the 5 star reviews are absolutely correct! We loved our stay at Waimarie apartments. This was our first time on Lord Howe island and I am so glad we chose to stay at Waimarie. Sharon and Peter are fabulous hosts and the accomodation is beautifully presented and has everything you need. Treated with home baking, bubbly and lots of homely touches to the apartment. The view of Mt Gower from the garden is also simply spectacular. Great find on Lord Howe.

    Our hosts Sharon and Peter could not have made us feel more welcome. There were some starter supplies in the kitchen for us and a bottle of champagne.

    The apartment at Waimarie was welcoming and extremely comfortable. Fluffy towels, fabulous shower and the most comfortable bed. A selection of books and films are available if you feel like spending a night in.

    Nowhere is far on LHI and we particularly enjoyed the walks to beaches and cafes although there is always a lift to and from restaurants available should you need one.

    The peace and tranquility felt here really added to the relaxing, peaceful holiday, thoroughly recommended.

    Room tip: There are 2 apartments offered here and either of them would be perfect.
