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!

If you're heading to Lord Howe then stay here. We stayed at a couple of different places on the island, but found this to be the best. Heaps tidy rooms, really good outside areas to cook and chill out and everything you need in the rooms. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. The Kitchen is well equipped... More

On arrival what a welcoming sight with fresh hibiscus and frangipanis decorating our apartment and outdoor area. It was difficult to leave the sunny deck overlooking the peaceful, private tropical gardens and although Ebbtide is at the top of a challenging climb, we didn't find it a problem and often took the Neds Beach option through the bush track.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Ebbtide, and whilst we have nothing else to compare it to, we had an perfectly relaxing stay here. We chose a garden unit which was very spacious, light, airy and well equipped. Ebbtide is situated on a moderate hill, but this suited us fine, as after making it back to... More
