“Heaven on a stick, then there was the island itself”

We had a wonderful week at Bowker Beach house. Our luggage failed to arrive, our host Lisa, made it her personal mission to track it down and hassle QantasLink to get it to us. By the time it arrived two days late we didn't care if it arrived or not. The house is secluded, and private yet easily accessible to the main areas of the island. We walked everywhere and it was an easy stroll. The bed is marvellously comfortBle. Everything, was catered for in the house. Even down to drink bottles and backpacks for hikes. Rod and Lisa are so hospitable, friendly and lovely hosts. I could recommend it to anyone.

“Luxurious Beach House in Paradise!”

My husband and I recently travelled to Lord Howe Island for our honeymoon. We chose Bowker Beach House for its privacy, location, amenities, and its luxury! When we arrived, it far exceeded our expectations – Lisa & Rod had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible; from pre-organised bike hire, to beach towels, picnic basket, snorkelling gear, stand up paddle boards, yoga mats, a fully self-catered kitchen with better appliances to what we have at home…! Their hospitality was second-to-none, from meeting us at the airport on arrival, giving us a brief tour of the island, recommending restaurants and activities on the Island, stocking the fridge with essentials on arrival (wine, antipasto, crackers, fresh fruit, bread, tea, coffee, milk…) Even with 2 days of rain, we were more than comfortable at Bowker Beach House, which is equipped with an extensive library, board games, and great DVD selection. We would highly recommend staying at Bowker Beach House to anyone considering a touch of understated luxury on beautiful Lord Howe Island. It was truly a honeymoon to remember.

“Perfect accommodation on the most beautiful island in the world”

Bowker Beach House is the perfect place to stay on Lord Howe. It is a brand new beautifully designed and built home nestled in the forest just across from the crystal clear lagoon. The house has been fashioned into separate living and sleeping wings. And there is a separate kitchen with first class cooking and cleaning (dishwasher) facilities. The drinks fridge was very well stocked for our week visit but if that isn't enough then the liquor store is just around the corner. The bathroom is enormous, relaxing and kept sparkling clean by Lisa. There is a separate laundry to wash all those dirty clothes after trekking, cycling, climbing and swimming all over Lord Howe. There are also bikes, a kayak, paddle boards and very good quality snorkelling gear. Lisa was the perfect host, took great care of us and arranged fishing, mountain climbing and transport. Internet access is pretty slow, so rather than download movies be content to enjoy a wide election of DVDs or read from a splendid library.

“Exquisite Perfection in Paradise”
Reviewed 30 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

It is very rare to find accommodation that matches the photographs shown on the website however, Bowker Beach House is exactly as shown and more! This home away from home is extremely luxurious with total attention to detail. Our high expectations were exceeded!

This one bedroom house has only recently been built so it has all the latest fittings and modern comforts. It is quiet, totally private and easily accessible to the main part of town. There are many areas where you can go both inside and outside this house to relax and enjoy the surroundings. There are also many things included such as different sporting equipment, wine, and some basic supplies (check out what is on offer). We choose Bowker because of these factors plus we had the flexibility to eat when and where we liked (either at the house or at restaurants/cafes) because we weren't locked into meal packages that some of the high end resorts offered.

Lisa and Rod were incredible hosts, so helpful and friendly, but very discrete. This is definitely the place to stay on Lord Howe Island!

As you enter this striking beach house you are immersed in its natural setting. The wooden decking and the large glass windows connect you with the outdoor setting from every room. We loved the indoor to outdoor living space. Thanks to wonderful hospitality from Lisa and Rod we settled in with fresh bread, wine and deli treats. We were shown around the island and given all the benefit of local knowledge which matched our interests in bird life and snorkelling. We had bicycles arranged on arrival and in the evenings our lovely hosts delivered us to any dinner venues. Island hospitality is really part of Lord Howe's charm and we would love to return. An idyllic holiday and superb beach house with charming hosts.
