Most of the accommodation on Lord Howe is inland, so options near the beaches are limited. From what I could see, the closest ones were Arajilla, Pinetrees and Milky Way, which is the most affordable of the three. It's still quite steep in general terms at Aus$300 per night for a one-bedroom villa, but hey, there are no budget options...

the villas are ideally located on the southern end of the island. The management are very friendly and obliging. They offer a pick up drop off service to the airport and to all restaurants operating on the island each day the other mode of transport around the island is via bike and facilities are available within the villa for these.

My wife and I stayed for a week in a one bedroom villa (although with so much to do on the island we were not in the room much during the day). This was roomy enough for the two of us with a spacious bathroom, a storage area off the bedroom and a good sized kitchen/dining/lounge. We alternated between dining...

I give Milky Way 5 stars in the context of what you should expect at/from Lord Howe Island. LHI is sheer magic and surely a rarity in the world. Limited guests, get around on bikes, leave your doors open, beautiful reef, walks, fish etc. A real step back into a forgotten time. Life is simple and pure. Milky Way is...

We really enjoyed our stay at Milky Way. We were in a one bedroom villa which was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately closely behind our villa was a road which connected some homes of local residents, and even though there are very few vehicles on the island, I was woken every morning early by cars passing....which spoilt my sleep-ins. Also on...

Had a very relaxing and enjoyable 2 weeks at Milky Way. We really enjoyed being about to cook for ourselves. Also loved the big rooms in the Belmoreana villa. Andrea looked after us beautifully. We will certainly visit again.

Just had a hugely relaxing and enjoyable 5 day break on Lord Howe staying at Milky Way villas. From the moment we arrived and were met by Andrea to the moment she dropped us back at the airport, life was easy (apart from some of the sensational walks we did while there).

Along with 20+ other travellers to Lord Howe Island my wife and I experienced our worst ever travel nightmare last week. The gravity of this statement should be seen in context of my other reviews which are always objective, candid and generally positive. I always prefer to give the benefit of the doubt. This is a different story. Before I...
