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.

Room tip: Some of the apartments may be more private than others.
