“Once in a life time holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

A weeks holiday for a family that chose to spend their last holiday together in an exceptional place. that will remember for the rest of their life's.
Lord Howe was an extraordinary destination and Lorhiti apartments were exactly what we expected plus more.
A property that is meticulously maintained with beautiful decor and gardens. The caretakers were amazing as nothing was too much trouble and the extra touches and effort they made was behind their job description.
In addition the location was handy with a short stoll to Ned's beach and Top shop.
I would defiantly recommend Lorhiti apartments for families and couples.

Room Tip: There's no pool and room service but the website does not have a N/A All roommate good.

Our second visit to Lord Howe , the first was our honeymoon 25 years ago . I liked the look of Lorhiti on line as was not at all disappointed . Pete and Deb picked us up from the airport and were great hosts , always friendly and helpful but never intrusive . The unit had everything we could want , big comfy bed . well appointed kitchen and a nice lounge room . The grounds are a tropical paradise with plenty of peaceful spots to relax . Great location , short walk through the bush to Neds beach and short ride down to the lagoon . Most nights Pete dropped at one of the great restaurants or we just stayed in and fry up some local fish . We had one of our best ever holidays , thanks Pete Deb Lorhiti .

I stayed here recently for 4 nights during my first visit to Lord Howe.
I cannot saty enough good things about Lorhiti.
From the pickup at the local airport to the drop off 5 days later, property managers Pete and Deb were always available as needed, gave informative tips and most importantly, maintained a friendliness and honesty throughout that made me feel immediately welcome.
The property itself is beautifully maintained with some amazing gardens that blend very well with the native vegetation.
The location is great: close to town centre and Ned's Beach, and I was there during muttonbird mating season so enjoyed the dusk walks down to the nearby Kentia palm forest to watch them come in in their hundreds from the ocean.
The rooms are spacious, clean, basic and well maintained: I cant comment too much here as I only spent the nights here: rest of the time was far too active enjoying the adventures available on LHI!
Will definitely return here, well recommended.
(I only gave 4 rather than 5 stars for sleep quality ONLY because the calling of the muttonbirdfs kept me awake, in a good way!)

My wife and two friends stayed here mid November as our first ever visit to Lord Howe. Beautifully maintained property, large spacious bedroom, ensuite and fully self contained kitchen/lounge/dining combined villa.
Located close to town centre and popular Ned's Beach, short walk to culinary delights, like Pandanus and Greenbacks if you decide that cooking while on holidays is not your style.
Hosts were terrific and obliging and always near by if you needed help, a lift or advise.
We all enjoyed our stay and will most likely be returning.

Room Tip: As all properties on Lord Howe use tank water, confirm hot water stability from shower prior to book...

My husband, John, and I spent 7 fabulous nights at Lorhiti Apartments and cannot recommend it highly enough. It was well equipped and clean with good storage, including wardrobes. The bedroom was spacious and the king-sized bed super comfortable. The outlook from the room was over the well-maintained garden and verdant. Each apartment is equipped with a verandah from which you can sit and enjoy an aperitif whilst watching the Golden Whistler and white terns flit around the branches. Barbecue facilities under cover of a pergola were available and modern. Set near the top of the hill above the lagoon it is only a 5 minute cycle "home" from the lagoon, whilst a 5 minute walk will take you from your apartment through the palm forest along Lorhiti's private track to Ned's Beach.
Onsite managers, Deb and Pete were on hand whenever they were needed and provided a wealth of information. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made us feel very welcome.
A communal phone is available on the premises (60c for a local call, useful for booking restaurants and activities). There is no mobile phone connectivity on the island. Internet access was free at Lorhiti - although a little patchy when the weather was inclement, as was the TV reception.
Lorhiti Apartments will definitely be our Number One choice on our hoped for return trip to Lord Howe Island.

My husband and I stayed at Lorhiti for 3 nights in September 2013. From the moment we arrived at Lorhiti we were made to feel like old friends welcomed home by the caretakers Deb and Pete. Our room was spacious, quiet, spotlessly clean and with everything, and more, than we would need. Lorhiti is located near the top of the hill of the main loop of accommodation, stores and resturants on Lord Howe Island. It is a short steep ride near the end from town, but it really only takes a few minutes to ride or walk up. Deb and Pete are absolutely lovely and cannot do enough to make sure your stay enjoyable. We would highly recommend staying at Lorhiti - it has everything you could want for a relaxing stay on Lord Howe Island.

We have just spent 7 nights at Lorhiti Apartments.Everything you require is supplied. Pete and Deb are fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble. I would hazard a guess that they are the best on the island!

We had the most relaxing wonderful holiday (and it really was a holiday with no mobile phone access!). Lord Howe Island is so beautiful. There is so much to see and do. We think it is the best holiday we have ever had.

We would not stay anywhere else on the Island except Lorhiti. The accomodation was so comfortable, clean and welcoming. We went out every night for dinner. It was such a treat to be taken to a restaurant and then driven back to Lorhiti again.

We loved walking along Lorhiti's lovely private path to Ned's Beach and swimming and seeing those amazing fish. The family of Woodhens living in the tropical garden at Lorhiti was a bonus to see.

Deb and Pete were great to talk to. They couldn't have done more for us. They made you feel so welcome and they made you feel so relaxed. We had lots of laughs together.

I was so excited about coming to Lord Howe Island and Lorhiti. It was more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.

Hopefully we can visit again one day.
