“Wonderfully relaxing”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We recently stayed at Bowker Beach House. We are long time LHI devotees and have experienced many places on the Island.
BBH is well located in the middle of the island, the Lagoon is 40 metres out the front door. We would start the day walking over to the Lagoon with our coffee followed by a swim and end the day with sunset drinks at the same spot, all the time thinking what a relaxing and wonderful holiday spot. BBH is extremely well appointed: there is an excellent library, Foxtel for the sports lovers, wifi if you feel the desire to stay in touch with the outside world, quality bathroom amenities, very comfortable and design inspired lounges both inside and out, and a good bed - everything you need to chill-out!
The hosts Lisa and Rod did everything possible to ensure our needs were met ( in fact exceeded). Whilst we were close enough to walk to many restaurants using the torches provided ( you can't believe how dark it gets there without a good moon), Rod is always on hand to drive you. The good new on LHI is the restaurant drives you home after dinner!
BBH is well equipped with an arrival package of quality wine, cheeses, and breakfast provisions. There is everything available you need for a beach holiday from the kayaks, backpacks, comfortable beach chairs to paddle boards.
Rating 5 out of 5.
Really, if you want an upmarket relaxing holiday BBH is not to be missed.
PS not sure why I am sharing all this info as we may never be able to book a spot again!!

“Perfect location, with everything you could need or wish for!”

We stayed here for 3 nights after our wedding on the island and wished we could have stayed for months! Three (busy) days was not enough time to enjoy all that Bowker Beach house provides! The snorkelling gear, bikes with cup/bottle holders, SUPs, picnic bag, well equipped kitchen, stunning bathroom, the lush bed with beautiful linen sheets, books, movies, nice food and wine, gorgeous decks! It is a hop, step and a jump to the lagoon- everything is an easy walk or quick bike ride away. The finishing at Bowker is high-end, the design is immaculate. Private, secluded, comfortable. We felt like kings! Highly recommend!

“Classy accommodation in a special place.”
Reviewed 19 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Prompted to visit Lord Howe Island by several friends who are regular visitors and who rave about the Island, we were very fortunate to book The Bowker Beach House for our first visit and were not disappointed.

The Bowker Beach House is no ordinary Beach House! It's five star luxury accommodation surrounded by a tropical forest. Very private but centrally locTed and accessible to all the Island has to offer.

It has all the equipment you associated with the beach - surfboards, kayaks, snorkelling gear etc. but much much more...a well appointed kitchen with well stocked fridge and pantry, large bedroom with a great bed, generous bathroom - fabulous toiletries and comfortable lounge area.

Even though the weather was inclement for several days during our stay it didn't matter as The Bowker Beach House provided all we needed to keep us amused - large library, DVDs, games, WIFI, Foxtel, wine and nibbles.

Lisa and Rod were the perfect hosts and have created a luxurious little paradise. We loved it!

“Beach house paradise”
Reviewed 7 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This beautiful beach house in paradise was all we could have hoped for, and then some; excellent attention to detail, with an impressive garden and everything so well set out, both inside and outside, and in impeccable order It's a haven of peace and tranquility and perfectly located by the lagoon, with easy bike access to the island's other pristine beaches, forest walks, restaurants and shops. The hospitality and welcome package was exceptional, and I would've loved to have stayed longer. We'll be back.

“Relaxed luxury in a perfect location”
Reviewed 18 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We have just had a wonderful week at Bowker Beach House. The house is perfectly situated in a lush private garden just across from the crystal blue water of the lagoon, beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. We loved that bikes, kayaks, SUPs, snorkels and fins were all provided, making it super easy to enjoy all the wonderful activities on the island.
Our host, Lisa made us feel very welcome, picking us up from the airport and the provision of sourdough, fruit, wine, nibbles, muesli etc meant we settled in to the relaxed island lifestyle straight away.
A wonderful place to relax in luxury surroundings.

“Beautiful Bowker”
Reviewed 4 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I recently stayed for a week on Lord Howe Island enjoying the wonderful accommodation facilities of Bowker Beach House. Bowker is perfectly located along Lagoon Road opposite the pristine Lagoon Beach and a short, flat walk to the main shopping strip. Our hosts picked us up from the airport, delivered us to our beautiful, private bungalow set amidst a lovely backdrop of ferns and palms. We were provided with a range of delicacies including avocado, bananas, wine/champagne, cheese, local sourdough bread, butter, milk, tea & coffee. We had the use of bicycles, snorkelling gear, kayak, stand up paddle boards, backpacks, beach towels, and flashlights for the outdoor activities. The interior of Bowker Beach House has been carefully thought out and is equipped with everything one could desire including wifi, landline for national calls (no mobile reception on LHI), extensive book and DVD library, pay TV, BBQ, washing machine and clothes dryer. The quality furnishings, towels, bathrobes, linen and daily servicing all added to that special feeling of being pampered. Lisa or Rod were happy to drop us off at the local restaurants for dinner if required and were a wealth of information about LHI. We could not have asked for better hosts and would certainly recommend Bowker Beach House to anyone seeking a self contained oasis of luxury for their Lord Howe Island stay - worth every penny!

Bowker Beach House is a beautifully designed and built bungalow with complete privacy and includes all the five star inclusions one comes to anticipate but not always receives - as you do at Bowker Beach House. Lisa and Rod go out of their way to provide first class "hosting". It is a unique experience. We will certainly return to Lord Howe to enjoy the beautiful island, friendly locals and magnificent accommodation which Bowker Beach House provides.
