If you want to be close to the beach this is the spot. Many of the other lodgings were up a hill inland. Nothing is very far on Lord Howe but being able to walk in 1 minute to the beach is excellent. Moorei Unit was clean and comfortable with everything you need. Loved the King sized bed and roomy walk in robe. Newish kitchen and bathroom. Lounge suite may need an upgrade as sagged towards the middle. Remember unless its raining all day you only sleep and sometimes eat there. The staff are friendly and laid back so you should be too. The drink and food honesty system is a real bonus. Restaurant was good value with good sized meals and fast service.
Lord Howe is such a beautiful island with gorgeous beaches and plenty of moderate and challenging walking trails. If you do Mt Gower be fit and prepared for ropes and cliff edges. Not for the faint hearted.
Using bikes to get around is a great idea, and the bike racks everywhere to park them with picnic tables and fireplaces at every beach (and there are many!). The lagoon colour has to be seen to be believed. The water is warm and there is fish and coral at this lattitude!!
We stayed for a week but need to return as we only just scratched the surface. Would definately stay again at Milky Way.
