Lord Howe Island was a trip come true. You know the price of that airticket is all worth it with the first breathtaking views of the island even before you land. We are glad to have chosen to stay in Lorhiti - our garden apartment was spacious, clean, fully equipped and about 10 mins ' walk to the island's little town area. Debra was a warm and cheerful host - she made us feel at home and was always able to advise on the best restaurant to go for dinner.

We were initially a tad worried about travelling there in winter, but it turned out to be a great decision. The weather gave us cool hikes, rainbows all over the island everyday and a tranquil experience without the peak summer crowd. Stay for at least 5 days if you don't want to regret not taking in enough of the amazing island just because you want to save on a night's expenses.

We wanted something special for a 60th birthday. Did we choose the best place or what!!
Flying in we started to get excited when we could see Lord Howe Island.
We knew the holiday was going to be perfect after being met at the airport by Pete and Deb, given a brief tour and description of the island, and then taken to our Lorhiti apartment.
As soon as Pete and Deb welcomed us into our apartment we felt at home, and knew that we had chosen the best accommodation for our holiday. The apartment was immaculate, the setting perfect and the gardens beautiful.
Lorhiti gave us the freedom to do our own thing by dining at home in comfort or by dining out.
We enjoyed just sitting on the balcony watching the white tern sit on it's egg and also watching the banded rail and woodhen when they came by to check out the new arrivals.
Ned's beach being so close to Lorhiti was a definite bonus, not far to walk to feed the ever hungry fish.
We stayed eight nights but it was not long enough. We enjoyed Pete and Deb's company and nothing was too much trouble for them. Always willing to help with advice and assistance.
We will definitely be returning to Lorhiti for the next 60th birthday.

We had planned a trip to Lord Howe for so long and heard so many great descriptions of the island but it was even better than we had expected. The fact that we had chosen Lorhiti Apartments was a real bonus. Debra and Peter made us feel completely at home and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our apartment was modern, well-equipped, very clean and comfortable. We didn't expect the bonus of the beautifully-kept gardens and loved sitting on our deck for breakfast watching the almost tame white terns in the tree right in front of us.
Lorhiti is a five-minute walk through the banyan forest to Ned's beach where we fed the fish as they swam around our feet. We watched the mutton birds arrive at night there also, and scuttle past us into their holes in the ground. The 'village' and Lagoon beach are only 15 minutes walk away, or five minutes by bike. In the evenings it was great to be driven by Peter to our choice of restaurant and brought home again by minibus. We'll definitely be back on beautiful Lord Howe, and definitely stay at Lorhiti.

Room Tip: All rooms were good.

We stayed at Lorhiti for 4 nights, and it was simply fantastic. Upon arrival at Lord Howe, we were greeted by Peter, who took us around on a tour and explained a lot about the Island. Then we also met Debra, whom, together with Peter, manages the apartments. They are great people and will go the extra mile to ensure everything is perfect for your stay :)
Our apartment was immaculate and very comfortable. It's very spacious, the bed is huge (and amazing), and everything you need is there - only have to bring your clothes. It's very close to Ned's Beach - it's nice to take this small track to get there - and there's also one good track nearby that leads to The Clear Place and the Valley of the Shadows, where you feel like you've entered a Lord of the Rings scene.
We absolutely loved to stay at Lorhiti - sadly it was not enough time to see and do everything we wanted to - but then we have a reason to come back, and we'll definitely stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lorhiti and our time was made even more pleasurable by outstanding managers - Debra and Peter - who went well above and beyond themselves to make our stay so comfortable – and they were so willing to share any extra information we required about the island. It was great too to have the presence of the mutton birds on the property at this time of the year – and the white terns nesting in the Cape lilac outside our apartment, gave hours of enjoyment! Great location higher up on the island

Room Tip: All 6 would be equally good as they are all surrounded by garden

We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay with the best couple running the place.Deb and Pete are getting quite a fan club and rightly so.Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are so warm and friendly with it.Lorhiti apartments are in the best spot very close to neds beach and are spotlessly clean and well maintained.As for the island as a whole all I can say is I wish everywhere was like it, trouble free, welcoming and beautiful. Hopefully we will be back one day and Lorhiti will be our place to stay.

From the moment we stepped off the plane & received a Warm & Friendly Greeting from Deb and Pete, Managers of Lorhiti we knew we were in for a Great time.
On our way to Lorhiti we were given excellent information on the History and what the Island has to offer to us.We were also taken on a short Tour of the Island showing us Beaches, Photographic Spots, Restaruants, Shops, Bike Hire & Supermarket which was greatly appreciated.
After being shown to our Beautiful Accomodation Deb and Pete even offered to Drive us to the Supermarket to get a few things if we didn't want to go out to a Restaruant that night which we gladly accepted.
Accomodation was Excellent. Beautiful , Spotlessly Clean, Large & Open Room,with 2 Veranders , 1 at the Front looking out over the Beautiful Tropical Gardens and 1 at the Back looking out over the equally Beautiful Gardens, Gazebo & Barbeque Area.The Kitchen in our room had everything you could want from making Toast & Coffee to a 3 Course Meal.
Location was EXCELLENT. 2 Minuite walk from our room through amazing rainforest to Neds Beach.One of the most Beautiful Places I have ever seen.Lorhiti is also Perfectly Positioned to give you Peace and Quiet but also within Easy walking distance or Bike Riding for any of your needs on the Island.
Deb & Pete were Wonderful Hosts at Lorhiti helping us at the drop of a hat to ensuer we had everything we wanted from Tour Information, Help with Bookings,Local advise and knowledge on the many Scenic Bushwalks as well as even Driving you to the Restaruant of your choice any night of the week where by all Restaruants on the Island drove you back to your Accom.at the end of the night.How Good Is That !.
Lord Howe Island and Lorhiti Apartments go Hand In Hand.What a Wonderful Place To Visit and what a Wonderful Place To Stay.
My Wife & I had one of the most Wonderful Enjoyable Peaceful and Memorable Holidays we have ever had staying for 5 Nights at Lorhiti and being looked after by Deb & Pete.
We can STRONGLY RECOMMEND that if you want the Best on Offer in the way of Self Contained 1st Class Accomodation on Lord Howe , STAY at LORHITI you won't regret it.
We are looking at going back again next year & can't wait.We had a Ball
