Absolutely Fantastic
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Jan 2024
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.

    Room tip: Unit 1 has 18 steps between ground floor and bedroom, unit 2 is 1 level, although I think smaller area.

    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.

    If you’re after boutique self-catering accommodation on LHI, I don’t think you’ll do any better than Howeana. Great location, Tick. Spotless presentation, Tick. Extremely well set up, Tick. Privacy, Tick Exceptional proprietors, Tick.
