Impressive place to stay
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Oct 2022
We had 6 nights at Earls Anchorage although we had to change rooms as we were a late (in the scheme of things) booking. We stayed in room 2 and room 5. Both were fantastic, although room 5 didn’t have blinds on the living room space facing the boardwalk between the units, so we did feel a lack of privacy, especially at night with the lights on.

The layout of the whole property, the design of the apartments and all the quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings are wonderful. There is so much thought and care - one local told us that owner John would only build and design a place that he’d be happy to stay in himself, and that really comes across. Before we moved on to a different accommodation for our second week, we made sure we had a lazy day (unusual for us) so we could just enjoy the space.

The grounds are lovely (with abundant local birdlife and plants) and the property backs on to Stevens Reserve, making that an alternative walk up and down to the settlement area. It’s on the hill behind the settlement but a pretty easy walk through the reserve or in one direction by road (and a steeper hill from the other side by road). We found it very accessible and a great location compared to some others. Accommodation/eating places on the island generally offer lifts to and from restaurants for dinner.

Owners John and Kathy, and hostess Christie, were all super friendly and helpful (but then, everyone on the island is!)

    The absolute best! We loved our stay at Earls it was just magic! The bungalows are huge, spacious and have everything you need. The staff at Earls went next level above n beyond to make our stay so perfect. Special shout out to Christie :-) short ride/walk to the lagoon and Ned’s is just around the corner. Cannot recommend this place enough - truly the best service ever! Thanks John Kathy and team

    My husband and I needed to destress from a very hectic work schedule. This was the perfect place. It had everything we needed and was amazingly comfortable, loved the comfy King size bed. Great position and easy to walk or ride anywhere. Really close to Ned's beach. Our plane was delayed, so had to stay another night and we were kept up to date and felt we were in good hands. John was great dropping us off at various dining places and nothing was too much trouble. Love the island's hospitality. Highly recommend!!

    Room tip: any room, they are all great.

    Exceptional service at every level. Special mention to Christie & John who personify hospitality.

    Location tick, Accommodation tick, Staff tick. Restaurant tick.

    Our family had one of our most enjoyable holidays ever. I've travelled the world and stayed at so many wonderful places. LHI is absolutely unique. Thanks again Christie & John. You deserve every accolade possible. Joe, Brenda, Zack & Amy.

    We were met at the airport by Christie. Her smiling face and willingness to assist with luggage immediately made us feel special. On the way to our accommodation she took us on a quick guided tour of the Island and pointed out where the important places like the hospital and shopping were located. When we arrived at our 'penthouse' we were thrilled to find it clean, comfortable and roomy. It was equipped with everything to make our stay a real holiday. If you needed a lift to the restaurants or anywhere else for that matter, John was always only a phone-call away. His service and hospitality was really above and beyond anything we ever expected. Thank you to John and Christie for making our stay so memorable.

    Very responsive to emails, even after business hours. Free complimentary airport pick up and drop off, dinner drop offs snd pick ups also. John and Kathy were great, you can tell they love what they do. In the room you can find anything u can think of..coffee , tea, milk, shower gels & shampoo's etc. room service daily which tops up your shower gels. Washing machine with washing powder in the bathroom. own little bbq on the outside deck as well. Also you can find lil bbq pack pack with cutlery, plates wine glasses etc. for beach bbq areas. Hardline phone in the room was also very handy for booking dinners and activities. There is no phone reception but wifi is available and works well.

    Earl's Anchorage is located just 1km from the Anchorage restaurant, shops and post office. We found the location great. It's close to the Ned's beach as well.

    Room tip: The place gets booked out quickly, but John and Kathy will do their best to help you out.
