Ebbtide sits on the hill above Ned's beach. It is a little out of the way but has cottages that are large and good value by Lord Howe Island standards. The hosts are friendly and there is a nice walk along the cliff to the beach. There a lots of birds in the forest - which is great but a... More

We've wanted to go to Lord Howe Island for many years but the airfares seemed always to put us off. But with the kids grown and the two of us now on our own, the time for LHI had come. Easy flight from Brisbane in a happy little plane. Friendly arrival at the intimate (little) airport. Cheery pick up by... More

The island is amazing but accommodation was a let down and over priced! In these apartments you can hear the people using the toilets next door! I caught the managers snooping around our unit and peering into our bedroom window!!The managers are also not friendly- run by a mother and daughter team that I suspect are simply over it.

My sister and I stayed in apartment1 and we found it comfortable . It is quiet except when the guests in the next apartment used their kitchen and slammed all the doors. The accommodation is fairly basic but all that we needed. The beds were comfortable and the shower was good. The gardens were well maintained and quite tropical. We... More

Whereas this property was very nice and the manager , Emma, a delightful, helpful young lady, i feel that people who go there should understand that the "free internet" mentioned in the advertisement means an occasional written email and nothing more, no Skype, no Facebook, no net surfing. Also there is no TV and very limited radio reception and no... More

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

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
