My Husband had always wanted to visit Lord Howe Island, so when he turned 50 we decided to treat ourselves to Bowker Beach House for 5 nights. Upon our arrival we knew we were in for something special. Rod and Lisa were so welcoming and friendly. Our accommodation was first class. The finishes and furnishings were just beautiful and everything from bikes, SUP's, snorkelling gear and even backpacks for hiking were there for us and if we needed anything at all, Lisa and Rod were more than willing to help out. I wish we could have stayed longer. It was heaven. Thank you Lisa and Rod for creating your little slice of heaven and sharing it with us.

My husband and I wanted to go book something special for our honeymoon. Looking at what other people had said and the photos that were available, Bowker Beach House seemed to fit the bill.
When we arrived on Lord Howe Island it became pretty clear that the experience that Lisa and Rod have created at Bowker Beach House not only met our expectations but far exceeded them.
Following our airport pick up and driving tour of the Islands key landmarks to get our bearings, Rod dropped us off at our private house and took us through all the mod-cons to make sure we knew what was where.
My husband and I aren't fancy people, but we do value quality, and comfortable luxury and Bowker Beach house has these in spades. From the super comfortable furniture; to the excellent complimentary wine, cheese and breakfast starter pack; to the bathrobes which we couldn't wait to put on to relax in the evening; the attention to detail and quality that Lisa and Rod have put in are top notch, and that's just the inside of the house!
The gardens around the house provide you with so much privacy. The walkways are well lit, and you feel like your only neighbours are the birds in the trees. The use of your own bikes, snorkel gear, stand up paddle boards and kayaks means you have so many options at your finger tips to explore this absolutely beautiful island.
This was the perfect location for our Honeymoon. We could explore a stunning location at our own pace, or just do nothing all day but take a short barefoot walk to the Lagoon beach (shoes really aren't required).
We had a fantastic stay and can't wait to come back.
Thank you Lisa and Rod for helping make our stay so perfect!
Our sixth visit was just as perfect as the first, and we will keep coming back as there is no place on earth like it. Thank you Lisa and Rod for providing such a beautiful house surrounded by a natural forest garden with all the amenities you need. If you are longing for a quiet, peaceful, romantic time away from hoards of touists and traffic BBH is your dream come true.

A truly unique and wonderful experience, this classy, tasteful accommodation is private, beautifully appointed, and excellent value for money. From the moment of our arrival, we were treated to the very best this special island could offer - met at the airport by Rod and introduced to key landmarks to get our bearings; warmly welcomed by Lisa and shown through 'our' pristine delightfully architected beach house; indulged with top quality gourmet goodies, including assorted wines and beer; spoilt rotten with divine toiletries. With discreet daily servicing, the beach house was immaculately presented and maintained, and catered to our every requirement - we wanted for nothing, with thoughtfully provided extras to meet every possible need - bikes, single and double kayaks, picnic and other backpacks, snorkelling gear, beach towels, life jackets, fully equipped kitchen, laundry and library. Rod and Lisa were just a phone call away to answer questions and provide recommendations, and always available to drive us to and from our restaurant and other bookings. Within this island paradise, the Bowker Beach House is a standout option, with all the benefits of the classiest of stays without the daunting price tag of comparable accommodation. Simply outstanding.
We recently stayed at Bowker Beach House. We are long time LHI devotees and have experienced many places on the Island.
BBH is well located in the middle of the island, the Lagoon is 40 metres out the front door. We would start the day walking over to the Lagoon with our coffee followed by a swim and end the day with sunset drinks at the same spot, all the time thinking what a relaxing and wonderful holiday spot. BBH is extremely well appointed: there is an excellent library, Foxtel for the sports lovers, wifi if you feel the desire to stay in touch with the outside world, quality bathroom amenities, very comfortable and design inspired lounges both inside and out, and a good bed - everything you need to chill-out!
The hosts Lisa and Rod did everything possible to ensure our needs were met ( in fact exceeded). Whilst we were close enough to walk to many restaurants using the torches provided ( you can't believe how dark it gets there without a good moon), Rod is always on hand to drive you. The good new on LHI is the restaurant drives you home after dinner!
BBH is well equipped with an arrival package of quality wine, cheeses, and breakfast provisions. There is everything available you need for a beach holiday from the kayaks, backpacks, comfortable beach chairs to paddle boards.
Rating 5 out of 5.
Really, if you want an upmarket relaxing holiday BBH is not to be missed.
PS not sure why I am sharing all this info as we may never be able to book a spot again!!
