Delighted with Endeavour Lodge. Clean, beautifully appointed, glorious views. Quiet and convenient - thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All the reviews here were spot on, and helped us decide on Endeavour Lodge - so glad we did.

Room Tip: #5 had 2 double rooms, each with a roomy ensuite bathroom, and a central living area - ideal for two...

We were impressed with the ocean view out if the veranda of room 7 & room 3 we stayed, all the rooms are good, very comfortable and thoughtful set up inside the lodge, have books to read about local birds and flora on Norfolk Island, picnic baskets and binoculars to watch the birds with; room are large and clean, tranquil location and we feel relaxed instantly. Would suggest some bar menu of snacks and small drinks as when we have rainy weather, be able to stay indoor and not having to go out looking for restaurants would be more convenient. Overall very happy with our stay and definitely recommend it.

We were a bit put off by all the 5 Star reviews - nothing could be that good, right?! Perhaps someone was paying the reviewers? Well, it turns out that all the other reviews were spot on! If we could award 6 Stars, we would! Hosts Duncan & Gaewyn were wonderful. The accommodation was wonderful. The views were wonderful. Is that a bit over the top? No!

We travelled with 4 other couples on our yearly get-together and took over the 2 BR unit and four of the 1BR units. All were perfectly appointed, right down to the picnic basket, fishing line and DVDs in the cupboard (there was even a mobile phone supplied). And spotlessly clean. Did we mention the views and the birds and the peace and quiet? The free bananas? And the stars at night? Ah, the serenity!

Perfect!

We recently travelled to Norfolk Island for a week and stayed at Endeavour Lodge. From the minute we were met by Duncan at the airport, to the time we sadly farewelled him and Gaewyn, things were brilliant. Endeavour Lodge is definitely the best place to stay on Norfolk, it's seldom I've stayed in a unit that has been so well appointed - they have thought of everything, even binoculars and a bird book to identify the many birds we could see from our private verandah. Outstanding views, and great private location - we will be back!

This was our second visit to Endeavour Lodge, staying in the fantastic 2 bedroom unit.

There is little to add to my review from last year – everything was just as perfect. This time Gaewyn and Duncan were on island and it was good to get to know them better. They are genuinely lovely hosts.

We rarely use the internet while on holiday but it’s useful to have a wi-fi hotspot right on site.

We met another couple on our flight who were visiting Norfolk and Endeavour for the first time. We saw them occasionally (everyone staying there seems to be private people like us which is great) and again at the airport waiting for the flight back to Auckland. They told us they’d had a great time – totally relaxing just what they needed.

It really is a fantastic place to stay – in fact we’ve already booked for next year, which will be our 10th visit to Norfolk Island.

Congratulations Gaewyn and Duncan, you have such a quality property and have thought of everything.

We spent a couple of weeks in the two bedroom cottage, and just loved it. A home away from home really, and so tastefully and thoughtfully appointed. Your 100% 5 star reviews is thoroughly deserving, and I don't think that we can add anything else . . . but just agree..!!! amongst a squillion other things, we loved the binoculars, the use of sim cards, that you have weberQ's (our favourite :) ) just an all round amazing experience, thankyou..!!!

Based on Trip Adviser reviews and the comments on their website, we booked into Endeavour Lodge for our return to Norfolk Island. We were not disappointed in any way - in fact it was even better than we had hoped. The unit was superb, very comfortable, clean and equipped with all manner of useful items, including a cell phone for calling home at a very good rate. Gaewyn and Duncan were very kind hosts and they have created a property to be proud of. Great views and restful tranquility - one of the best experiences we have had during holidays.

Room Tip: All rooms are positioned to maximise the fantastic view
