Great property all round. Picked up from airport. Friendly welcome from Duncan and Gaywyn. Car provided at small cost was invaluable. Apartment was immaculately clean and everything you could need was supplied and of very high quality. Appreciated the discount vouchers for local restaurant and also the supplied beach towels, picnic set, thermos and binoculars.
The location is great with beautiful views from the balcony.
We will remember our Norfolk Island holiday at Endeavour Lodge with fondness as we sipped wine and barbequed on the balcony, watching the sunset over the treetops.

Room Tip: Great views from apartment 2, but apartments from 3 upwards would probably have a bit better views.

Our family stayed at Endeavour Lodge in September. Part of the reason for choosing to stay at Endeavour was based on the reviews I'd read on Trip Advisor. Surely the place would have to be good with all of these 5 star reviews. Well it certainly was. Location was great, views awesome and everything you could want was there and it was the cleanest place I have ever stayed in, in my life. The owners are lovely people too. You won't be disappointed if you choose Endeavour Lodge for your holiday.

Room Tip: We were in the 2 bedroom cottage which is great for families or 2 couples together

We had a wonderful time on Norfolk Island celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary staying at Endeavour Lodge. The rooms were clean and the view amazing. All the extras were included in the apartment including a picnic basket and a travel rug. Bananas were in fresh supply everyday. I would recommend Endeavour Lodge to all travellers to Norfolk.

We stayed at this Lodge for a week in August. What a great spot.Perched up on top of a hill
at the Southern end of the Island. Lovely views out to Philip Island one way, and ocean and farm views from the Kitchen window. Our Apartment had absolutely everything you needed and more. Washer an dryer in the bathroon and a small clothesline outside your unit.Even supplied a thermos and picnic hamper, rug an binoculars, so you could pack your own lunch etc and go for a drive to some quiet corner of this beautiful Island. Bunches of bananas from the property were hung outside their laundry door and you could just go and help yourself to them. Great for breakfast each day.
As the Lodge is situated at the very end of the road... it is silence personified.It was a absolutely what needed , but ony a few of kilometres from the shopping area.
Our host met us at the airport, checked us in, gave us the keys to our Rental car, and
left us to enjoy. PS had a complimentary Bus tour of the Island next am... good value.
what we needed.

Room Tip: I dont think you could choose "a wrong room" owing to the location. Sun came in morning...

These units have a great location overlooking the ocean with a good view of Phillip Island.
Gaewyn and Duncan have taken great care to set up these units with an eye for detail. They are clean, comfortable and the beds give you a good nights sleep.
A free banana supply make every mornings breakfast a healthy start for the day. On our arrival the hire car was waiting for us next to our unit, a 3 course dinner (recommend) was offered for the first evening and the free mobile telephone was well explained by Gaewyn. Any messages from different tour operators for us, where promptly relied to us.
I most likely don't do justice to other operators, but I would not look to stay anywhere else on my return.

We had a great week on Norfolk Island, staying at Endeavour Lodge.
Loved the way they have thought of everything - even a torch with functioning batteries! Kitchen was spotless, fully equipped, excellent appliances. You'd think that Norfolk would be predominantly seafood but beef was the go. And a great little Weber to bbq it on.
Very comfortable bed, spotless bathroom.
Favourite spot was the balcony, with a good book and a glass of something.
Norfolk Island itself is just fascinating for its history, splendid walks, and natural beauty.
Endeavour is out of the main centre (Burnt Pine) which we loved.
The hospitality extended by the Endeavour team was top-rate.
they don't have a swimming pool, but Emily Bay down the hill is beautiful!

Room Tip: Room 6 (where we stayed) and Room 7 are the newest.

Recently spent two weeks at Endeavour Lodge July/August. It is the ideal accommodation, magnificent views,spotlessly clean, good quality fittings everything you need for a perfect holiday. Gaewyn and Duncan the owners and all their staff could not be more helpful and friendly. This is our second visit and it won't be our last. We highly recommend Endeavour Lodge.
