“Perfect getaway on Lord Howe Island”
Reviewed August 3, 2019 for a stay in July 2019

Our first trip to Lord Howe Island and what an amazing experience. Made all the better by a stay at Bowker Beach House. Would highly recommend Bowkers with no details overlooked to make for a comfortable, private, and relaxing holiday. The house is perfectly located in your own private bush but still right in the middle of all the action with the beach across the road and a short ride to town. Also great to have everything include likely Kayak's, bikes, snorkeling gear etc, which gives the flexibility to do what you want, when you want. Can't wait to come again!

“Perfect couple getaway”

Lord Howe Island is the quintessential unspoiled paradise, but you are definitely spoiled at Bowker Beach House. Lisa has put so much thought into the design of BBH, the layout of the house, the colour scheme and all the fixtures and fittings are luxurious, but simple and very comfortable. BBH is very quiet and private, with lush gardens all around, but also just across the road from the beautiful beach and lagoon, and a short stroll or bike ride to cafes and shops. Lisa and Rod made us feel very welcome, but did not impose upon our privacy. We loved all the extras - wine, cheese, olives, eggs and bread, and real coffee. We really enjoyed not having mobile reception, but were glad from time to time of the wi-fi available in BBH. Would highly recommend Bowker Beach House to any couple. Great place for a honeymoon! (or those of us married for 33 years!)

“Serenity in paradise”
Reviewed December 4, 2018 for a stay in December 2018

What a place! We stayed at Bowker Beach House for our honeymoon and it exceeded our expectations. I was apprehensive about booking a house instead of one of the luxury lodges. After staying three nights at Bowker I am so glad we went with the private house. The privacy and amenities were fantastic! Every detail has been thought about and you are left never wanting more and being totally satisfied.

You have access to everything you need to enjoy the island - bikes, canoes, paddle boards, hiking poles (wish we had taken these), backpacks, snorkelling gear - you name it Rod and Lisa have thought of it. This made our stay perfect, as we didn't have to book anything, arrange with anyone - we just picked up what we wanted and off we went for the day. It was pure bliss! Again making this such a private getaway. No need to talk with anyone if you don't want to.

Lisa and Rod are the perfect hosts! Rod greets you at the airport and gives a quick tour of the island so you are across of the what and where. Lisa is wonderful at making sure your needs are met. Either one of them will happily pick you up and drop you off to a restaurant for dinner. We only took them up on this offer once, as we just loved cycling freely around the island.

Don't hesitate and just book this house - it will meet all your expectations and more. We loved it!

“Paradise in Paradise”
Reviewed November 21, 2018 for a stay in November 2018

Rod & Lisa have created a wee slice of heaven on LHI. We spent four wonderful days wanting for nothing. Bowker House is a minutes walk from the beautiful lagoon beach and short cycles to the rest of the islands beaches, cafes or restaurants. And if you don’t want to walk or cycle then Rod will drive you!!! So thank you Rod & Lisa for making us feel so welcome on your island paradise.

Lord Howe Island and Bowker Beach House are a match made in heaven. The island is a pristine paradise and Bowker creates a beautiful private haven after a day of exploring the island.
Lisa and Rob have thought of everything to make a stay here simply perfect.
From bikes and kayaks at your front door to a lift down to the restaurant of your choice for dinner nothing is overlooked.
The house itself is beautiful, nestled in rain forest and every luxury at your fingertips.
A peaceful and awesome place to holiday.
Can’t wait to return!

Bowker Beach house is a gem that is hard to beat. It was our first stay on LHI - an island we loved for the beauty, walks, scenery and the gorgeous lagoon. Bowker Beach house is beautiful, immaculately presented and simply stunning and situated in a great location. We loved our 7 days to the fullest. Lisa and Keith are graceful and perfect hosts.

Bowker beach house exceeded our expectations. Luxury accommodation in a secluded setting, while being close to all amenities. Was a lovely treat to have wine, cheeses, fruit, coffee and breakfast foods all on arrival. And to top it of hosts, Rod and Lisa are genuine lovely people. We can’t say enough about Lord Howe island and Bowker beach house. See you on Stewart Island, NZ sometime Rod and Lisa :)
