Meeting the wood hens on Lord Howe Island was the highlight of our stay. Without mobile phones and internet you can completely cut off from the world and relax. A unique and special place with beautiful surroundings and friendly people. Pinetrees Lodge was a perfect holiday destination with lovely food. We will be back.

The food at Pinetrees Lodge is fantastic! Our compliments to the chef. The service was great and the staff very obliging (there is nothing they can’t do for you). The fish feeding on Ned’s Beach, the magnificent views, snorkelling the amazing coral reef – a wonderful experience. I will be back! 10/10
Lynette & John, Castle Hill, NSW

I never imagined such a paradise could exist with its natural beauty and relaxed locals on Lord Howe Island. From snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing to just chilling on the lagoon. I can’t say enough about the staff at Pinetrees Lodge – friendly, welcoming and professional.
