We stayed at Pinetrees for a week. The staff are fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble. We had a problem with our unit and they were very willing to assist. The food is great. I would highly recommend the BBQ option. You nominate the location and an esky and picnic basket is delivered at lunch time. Sure, you still have... More

Accommodation, service and food was simply outstanding. Clean comfortable room, friendly helpful staff who always had a smile and food to die for (too good and too much!!). Absence of TV, radio, internet and mobile phones was brilliant - no annoying interruptions. Go to Lord Howe if you like walking, hiking, snorkling, swimming (with the fish), Kayaking, picnicking, or simply... More

No mobile phone. No TV. No radio. Yesterday's papers. Very limited access to the landline and the internet. No rubbish. Limited traffic. Warm water. Plenty of places to walk and sit and read. Friendly locals. Fantastic sunsets. That's Lord Howe. Excellent food. Excellent service. Excellent staff. That's Pinetrees. Together, the perfect way to escape the hustle and bustle.A short runway...

My husband and I spend several nights here for our honeymoon in December 2014. The overall impression of the lodge is one of simple comfort and relaxation. Nothing fancy (you can stay at Capella for a more high-end experience), however, the location, amenities and everything else were outstanding. The highlights of our experience at Pinetrees were; the all inclusive food... More

There is something magical about Lord Howe Island! It could be the simplicity of island life, the crystal clear lagoon water at mostly deserted beaches, or experiencing family run businesses that have been there for generations. It was an unforgettable location for babymoon #3. Arriving on the island via Quantas Link, I was skeptical about what we were going to... More

We expected a good welcome but got a great welcome. Our experience at Pinetrees just stayed at a high level of attentive service and great food for the whole week. Lord Howe Island is a great holiday destination and as staff are mostly non locals themselves, the relaxed atmosphere of LHI keeps everyone fresh and focused. There is lots to... More

We had the most amazing time staying at Pinetrees Lodge. The highlight would have to be the food - fresh, healthy, seasonal, delicious - every meal was sensational. From the homemade granolas to the incredible desserts, every meal was a taste sensation. The rooms have been very well refurbished, the beds are extremely comfortable, our verandah was a beautiful place... More

Did you know that there was an island more beautiful than Bora Bora, with a magnificent lagoon teeming with colourful fish overlooked by dramatic volcanic peaks and fluffy clouds scooting across an electric blue sky? Did you know that it's only 2 hours from Sydney and it has less than 350 inhabitants and no mobile phone service? Did you know... More

We stayed here as a family of four (two children aged 2 and 6) for a week. Nothing was too much trouble and every request was granted without trouble. For example out two year old fell asleep at lunch time so the chef kindly made a quick pasta when she woke one hour after lunch . This was so kind... More

I have just spent my second trip to Pinetrees and they just never let you down. Apart from the amazing crystal clear ocean, incredible walks and breath taking snorkeling and scuba diving the food oh glorious food. Pinetrees is a 5 star rating when it comes to their food. From the morning 8am breakfast call to the 7.30 dinner its... More
