Hideaway units are just that, hidden away in a lush bush setting, feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, really nice feeling. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hill is a kicker to climb to get there, but it gets easier each day and the view from the top to the lagoon is lovely. Kitchen equipped well for...

We really enjoy having guests, but also like to give them their privacy. Glad you enjoyed staying at Hideaway and really like to think that it is rather like a "home away from home." I hope you will stay with us at another time - we have a lot of solo travellers, and it seems to have become our speciality...

I was late arriving, and late leaving, for that matter. But no problem for my wonderful hosts, Val and Bronwyn. I was picked up at the airport and given a tour of the island - a very nice hello. But really, the whole stay was carefully monitored - advice given judiciously, peace and quiet given generously - I never felt...

Thank you for your kind review Sandra. We like to look after our sole travellers but are very conscious of giving our guests 'space'. Glad we found the balance. Look forward to seeing you again sometime.

If you are looking for an excellent base for a stay on Lord Howe Island, then Hideaway ticks most boxes. The units are modestly priced, spacious, very well equipped, and in immaculate condition. Val, the proprietor, is an ideal host: unobtrusive, helpful at critical moments, very welcoming and a fund of information. At around 08:45 each morning, she brought us...

My partner and l recently stayed a Hideaway for 8 nights. We loved our stay, loved the lush gardens, spacious apartment, and it was in a fantastic location, with a 2 minute walk to Joys Shop for food and essentials, a 10 minute walk to Ned's beach, and surrounded by beautiful lush forest. Val was very helpful and gave us...

I just returned from a fantastic 7 night stay at Hideaway and could not be happier. The apartment is clean and comfortable, with a reasonable back deck overlooking a peaceful garden full of frangipanis and butterflies. Yes, it is located at the top of a very steep hill, so may not appeal to some - but I found the seclusion...

This is the perfect place to spend your time on Lord Howe. It’s walking and cycling distance to everything. The rooms are spotlessly clean and perfectly appointed. The price, given you are on Lord Howe, is really fair and the help hat we received from Bronnie and her mum was simply outstanding. They both went out of their way to...

Val, & her daughter Bronwyn, were great hosts and couldn't have been more helpful. I stayed for 7 nights and because the planes couldn't land on the day I was due to leave, Qantas paid for me to stay an extra night, which I thought was great, so I ended up staying 8 nights. The Hideaway is in a good...

Had a great stay at Hideaway, clean and comfortable room, quiet spot. Easy 10 min walk to town. Val was very accommodating and helpful. Very friendly service. They also gave me a little tour of the island on my arrival. Would I stay here again? Absolutely.

Hideaway was awesome accomodation for the price, yes there is a hill however it's not that bad. Val and John were excellent hosts and nothing was too much trouble. I walked most places and found everything was accessible by foot. Yes the the decor is minimalist however very comfortable and you are not on Lord Howe Island to sit in...

The accomodation was clean and in a peaceful setting, there were ample towels and you could use the guest laundry for washing. Tthere could have been more kitchen equipment. For example no bowls to put salad or veggies in. The coffee plunger was a bonus however :) The hosts were informative and able to pick you up from local restaurants....
