Swimming with the turtles at Lord Howe Island was amazing and I loved the Gower trek and snorkelling. The staff at Pinetrees Lodge is fantastic, very helpful, thoughtful and friendly. The food has been more than great.

Pinetrees Lodge is a national treasure! Staying on the island is special enough – the natural beauty, wildlife and swimming. But staying at Pinetrees Lodge is an additional delight – a wonderful guesthouse with a proud, unbroken history, wonderful food and a friendly but reliable good and welcoming staff. Too special for words!

It is hard to sum up the brilliance of Lord Howe Island in a few lines. It is an escape from reality and a holiday in paradise with beautiful beaches and walks with spectacular views. This is my twelfth stay at Pinetrees Lodge; it is a wonderful guesthouse with the friendliest staff. Thank you for the best 10 days of my year! See you next year!

Kayaking on the lagoon on Lord Howe Island, BBQ’s at Ned’s Beach are most memorable. From the moment Pinetrees Lodge picked us up at the airport we were warmly welcomed.
