We booked at Pandanus for 6 nights under the impression that the apartments were stand-alone
cottages. Their website does not mention that the apartments are duplexes, so you have a common wall with your neighbours. If you wish to read a book or have a drink during the afternoon on the front verandah there is no privacy as the other guests are right next door (abou 10 feet away). At night we could hear them walk around, due to the timber floors, doing their washing etc, the pump must have been right under our bedroom and we could hear every tap being turned on and off. Very disappointing to pay that amount of money and have basic facilities like that. The bathroom and the kitchen are average as well, with a very small shower ; there is nothing luxurious about Pandanus. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Kenya Apt, which is a replica of the one next door. They do not provide bicycles but saying that Liz was a very good host and drove us to anywhere we wanted. I think for the price they charge it was disappointing.
Everything on Lord Howe Island is expensive ie. the restaurants, the supermarkets, the gift shops. It is a pity because it is such a beautiful island and so close to the mainland!More
