We were recommended Ebbtide Apartments by friends who had stayed there and it didn't disappoint. 2 weeks was not long enough.Mother & daughter team Julie & Emma are exceptional hosts. The apartments are spacious and well stylishly furnished. The other great thing is the sense of privacy you get and the gardens are delight and each apartment has its own... More

It's wonderful to know that we can keep up the good work from previous recommendations! Thanks so much for your time taken to review Ebbtide. Lord Howe is really such an amazing destination, to be able to provide accommodation that is comfortable and suitable to our environment is what we hope to achieve and maintain. More

This was a great place to stay on the gorgeous LHI. The rooms were spacious and while not luxurious, they were attractive, well maintained and very clean. The gardens around the apartments were lovely and I especially enjoyed the fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables from the garden to add to the meals we cooked. There is a shop around the... More

Wood fired BBQ's are the best!!!!.....It is such a part of Lord Howe, relaxing whilst watch the flames from the fire freshly caught local fish and a beautiful sunset. We are pleased you enjoyed everything Ebbtide had to offer, there are just 2 properties on the Island that no longer have TV's in the room. Nice to have the choice... More

We just had a week @ Ebbtide and were well hosted by Julie & Emma. Amongst other things they took us on their Friday Chook Run at the golf club. They fairly shamed us with their golf but were nothing but encouraging as we hacked our way around the course which has got to be seen to be believed. The... More

Tucked away overlooking Neds beach, Ebbtide is an absolute gem with authentic hosts in Emma and Julie greeting you at the airport and delivering you there at the end of your stay as is the LHI tradition. Accept a holiday venue without TV and mobile phones as a welcome change. And be very patient with the Internet. Here as with... More

Many Thanks for taking the time to review Ebbtide. There are very few downfalls of living on this spectacular Island but the lack of a decent internet service is high up on the list, not only for holiday makers!! Good news however the Lord Howe Island Museum/Visitors centre have managed to install a new service that is far better than... More

Stayed at Ebbtide for 8 days and Julie and Emma couldn't have done anymore to make our stay better! A little out of the way over a big hill that the bikes struggled with, but once there it was so quiet and peaceful with no TV noise. Hardly aware of other guests. We had end unit (3) which was even... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Ebbtide and your Lord Howe holiday. I'm pleased you were happy with the amenities provided on the property, Ebbtide is now only 1 of 2 accommodation providers that have chosen not to include TVs on the property as so many of our guests appreciate the enhanced peace and quite that is now...

Stayed for 2 weeks in the superior unit March 2014. Although at the end of a drought period, with tank water very low, Julie and Emma do everything possible to make your stay comfortable. The grounds are spacious, and the unit free standing, with a view over the Admiralty Islands...although you do have to look over the top of a... More

Thankfully we have had some rain! The Island relies on rainfall as the primary water supply, each property having it's own tanks for water collection. Thank you for reviewing Ebbtide! More

We only stayed for one night after checking out of the Somerset apartments because of a mistake we had made with dates. Ebbtide is a little out of the way but was a very pleasant experience. At over $300 per night we did not find it as good a value as Somerset apartments but the rooms were bigger and decorated... More

We loved everything about LHI and Ebbtide. Emma & Julie did a great job of taking care of us. The apartments were well appointed and very clean. There was a "transit" room where we could borrow backpacks, snorkeling gear, books, sunscreen, bug spay, etc. Washer/dryer were available too. There was an honor system for wine & beer and their prices... More

We stayed for a week in January and found Ebbtide to be an excellent base on Lord Howe. It is a 10-15min walk into town or 5-10 mins to Neds Beach. Our apartment was one of three joined together, yet the clever layout meant we never heard our neighbours at all and the only noise at night is that of... More

Had an amazing two weeks at Ebbtide. Lovely gardens and a great location, only minutes walk from Ned's beach and right near Topshop. Clean, tidy and well equipped rooms with great decks. There is also a little veggie patch to help your self to. Overall, a fabulous stay!
