We loved staying at Milky Way. The apartments had everything and the basic food hamper was a great help. Packs, beach towels daily visits from the hosts to check any requirements and picnic hampers were all great extras. Their situation on the island was also close to lots of things. We walked half the time and biked the rest. At... More

A leisurely stay in a well serviced apartment. Were picked up at the airport and given a commentary on the appointment of the island on the way to the apartments on the southern end, adjacent to the lovely Settlement Beach. We only cooked one nights the restaurants were all so good despite several being closed for Winter. Walking to the... More

I recently had a short stay on Lord Howe as a break from the the hustle and bustle of Sydney. The Milky Way Villas provided a very good accommodation option. The villas are comfortable, clean, spacious and well appointed. The units are set up for self catering with all necessary kitchen appliances. The staff at Milky Way were excellent in... More

Our apartment had everything that we needed. Each morning our friendly hostess would visit us to see what we required for the day and to offer us any advice. Located on Lagoon Rd it is convenient to most things on the Island. A very comfortable bed and everything you need in a kitchen. Located next to Settlement Beach made for... More

Set in the seclusion of palms and banyans, with the shortest of walks to nearby Settlement Beach, the Milky Way Villas exceeded all of our expectations: considerate and unobtrusive service from owner Andrea (who also picked us up from, and delivered us to the airport) and her staff; spacious, clean, quiet and well-equipped self-catering accommodation (with tea, coffee, milk, condiments...

We stayed at Milky Way Apartments in March. The units are well designed and have a proper kitchen . Sound insulation is good and the bed was very comfortable. Two great advantages of the location are that it is very quiet as it is at the end of the road and that it is on level ground - no challenging... More

We have been coming to Milky Way almost every year since 2008. Superb position by Settlement Beach which has both good snorkelling and sea grass beds where turtles feed. Really comfortable self catering accommodation and friendly knowledgable staff. Eat in, barbecue by the beach or lots of island restaurant options - and they drive you there as well!Milky Way does...

We would highly recommend Milky Way to anyone. The trip was a birthday present for my wife and the Island and locals did not let us down. Even after my wife's baggage had to be left behind in Brisbane due to weather conditions and fuel restrictions of the plane. Andrea met us at the airport with a gift voucher from... More

We spent 6 delightful nights at Milky Way and would highly recommend it. There is a terrific beach a minutes walk away and the setting is idyllic. You can easily walk to the town centre. Our unit was clean, comfortable, private and great value for money. We had champagne, cheese and biscuits watching the sun set on a secluded cosy... More

We have just returned from our week's stay on the Island. My husband has difficulties moving around due to pain and Andrea bent over backwards to assist us. We had the end room - #10 and the view was extremely relaxing. The whole island experience was wonderful. All locals, islanders and tour operators (bar a few of the "trendy"shopkeepers) went...
