The setting was idyllic, accommodation very quite, we hired bikes and rode everywhere, walked all the tracks, went to the top of Mt Gower. The staff were very helpful and checked every morning if we needed anything. Cannot find fault at all.

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 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
