“Lovely and Relaxing - Perfect little beach house.”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the moment you walk down the decking pathway, through the gardens and into this lovely little house, you immediately feel relaxed. The house itself has everything you need for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. From the Royal Doulton dinnerware to the Sheridan linens and lovely bath products. The kitchen is stocked with 4 bottles of wine, along with cheeses, olives and a number of other local products. The house has push bikes, snorkeling gears, beach chairs, umbrellas, picnic baskets and paddle boards all for your exclusive use. This house is very private but it only a 1 minute walk away from the lagoon and lovely mountain views. You are also only a 2 minute push bike ride away from the center of town. As for your hosts, Lisa and Rod, you would not find two nicer people. Both go out of their way to make sure your stay is as pleasurable as possible. I usually only stay at 5 star resorts but I could not fault this house in any way. I would highly recommend this house to any couples wanting a romantic stay or getaway and my husband and I will be back.

“Perfection”

This was our first time setting foot on Lord Howe Island & we were simply blown away.
The island and Bowker Beach House exceeded our expectations. Lisa & Rod were exceptional hosts with their attention to detail creating an inviting, private retreat & a heavenly few days.
The design of the house with its strategically placed windows framing the foliage outside connected us with nature on every turn. From the outdoor shower, luxurious bed, champagne and wines, fresh bread, well stocked book shelves, bikes and kayak we have now been spoiled forever.
We walked the 2 minutes barefoot down to Lagoon Beach every morning to swim before breakfast and in the evening to watch the sunset. The "locals" on the island were so lovely and generous- they definitely added another dimension to our holiday.
The combination of both Lord Howe Island and Bowker Beach House was magical and we were truly dragging our heels when we had to leave.
Highlights- Biking everywhere, kayaking to North Beach, swimming with turtles, Kite boarding with Dave (Lord Howe Kite Surf), Neds Beach, biking everywhere, the co-op for bulk food items, birds and more birds, Diving (Howea Divers/Brian), biking everywhere & sunsets.

“Everything you could wish for”
Reviewed 28 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Our stay at Bowker Beach House on Lord Howe Island was a dream come true. Not only is the island a very special place but Lisa and Rod, the owners of Bowker Beach House, have now made it possible to experience all the island has to offer whilst enjoying the comforts and freedom of a first class rental property where no detail has been overlooked. The house is a perfect base, close to the amenities of the 'CBD' and across the road from the idyllic lagoon. All you need in the way of facilities and equipment are provided and the house is spacious and beautifully presented. Along with daily servicing and expert recommendations on the islands attractions and restaurants the warm and friendly approach of Lisa and Rod ensure that Bowker Beach House is difficult to beat as a place to stay when visiting Lord Howe Island .

We have just returned from celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary at Bowker Beach House and can only say that our stay was perfect in every way. Lisa and Rod's attention to detail in the furnishings, accessories and added extras ensured that we made the most of our 5 days. During the day we made good use of the paddle boards (fun), snorkels and fins (spectacular), bikes (essential), kayak (exhausting) and daybeds (relaxing). In the evening we loved reading from Lisa's extensive library while listening to music and enjoying the wine and nibbles provided. The bedroom and bathroom were of the highest comfort and quality. Thankyou both for providing us with this wonderful hideaway on this most special island.

We stayed at Bowker Beach House for our Honeymoon. It was private, luxurious, stylishly fitted out and central to shops, restaurants and the beautiful lagoon. Lisa was fantastic and the tour of the island when we arrived was very much appreciated. Bowker Beach House was the perfect compliment to an oasis of an island. Thank you Lisa and Rod!

“Heaven on a stick, then there was the island itself”

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful week at Bowker Beach house. Our luggage failed to arrive, our host Lisa, made it her personal mission to track it down and hassle QantasLink to get it to us. By the time it arrived two days late we didn't care if it arrived or not. The house is secluded, and private yet easily accessible to the main areas of the island. We walked everywhere and it was an easy stroll. The bed is marvellously comfortBle. Everything, was catered for in the house. Even down to drink bottles and backpacks for hikes. Rod and Lisa are so hospitable, friendly and lovely hosts. I could recommend it to anyone.

“Luxurious Beach House in Paradise!”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I recently travelled to Lord Howe Island for our honeymoon. We chose Bowker Beach House for its privacy, location, amenities, and its luxury! When we arrived, it far exceeded our expectations – Lisa & Rod had thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible; from pre-organised bike hire, to beach towels, picnic basket, snorkelling gear, stand up paddle boards, yoga mats, a fully self-catered kitchen with better appliances to what we have at home…! Their hospitality was second-to-none, from meeting us at the airport on arrival, giving us a brief tour of the island, recommending restaurants and activities on the Island, stocking the fridge with essentials on arrival (wine, antipasto, crackers, fresh fruit, bread, tea, coffee, milk…) Even with 2 days of rain, we were more than comfortable at Bowker Beach House, which is equipped with an extensive library, board games, and great DVD selection. We would highly recommend staying at Bowker Beach House to anyone considering a touch of understated luxury on beautiful Lord Howe Island. It was truly a honeymoon to remember.
