How lovely it was to return to my favourite island and be the first guest to experience the great refurbishment of this delightful cottage. Lisa and Rod have made Lagoon Landing a perfect holiday stay with everything thought of to make my time peaceful, relaxing and worry-free. I enjoyed my regular strolls over the paddock and across the stile to visit Joy's shop with the occasional stop to chat to the resident horse and cow. I really appreciated all the brand new kitchen facilities, fantastic modern bathroom and great library. The adjoining laundry was a huge asset. In fact, I could not have asked for more. Thankyou Lisa and Rod.
So we love Lord Howe having been four times in two years and now we've found our perfect hosts - Lisa and Rod made us feel so welcome and so at home, arranging bikes, stocking the fridge with basics and daily giving us news on the island without being intrusive. The cottage is very relaxing and luxurious. So many outdoor spaces to sit and enjoy the peace and garden with total privacy. We have already booked again for next year - see you soon Lord Howe, Lisa and Rod!
Where do I start? This place is clean, fresh, new, close to the lagoon, the museum, cafés etc.
Lisa and Rod provided basic provisions such as farm-fresh eggs, wine, bread, milk etc. There is lettuce to pick.
The house (Lagoon Landing consists of 2 privately located 1 bed beach-style homes) sits on a large area of land with a horse, a cow and several hens wandering freely around.
When we arrived Rod took us on a tour of the island so that we could orient ourselves and later in the week he went fishing with my husband John.
Rod and Lisa were always happy to have a chat and to help. This is the only place where we would stay on Lord Howe Island.
I booked lagoon Landings for our 41st wedding anniversary in Feb this year ,we had an amazing time on Lord How Island ,this place was just as I expected it to be .Lovely modern cabin , with nice little touches eg ,fresh fruit ,homemade jam ,butter ,milk ,coffee.tea,and the best fresh baked bread all ready for you on arrival .New washer and dryer in separate Laundry building with washing powder supplied (,nice to be able to take clean clothes home) .We loved walking over the road to beach each day and drinks on the veranda each night ,it is a place to completely relax .Walked all over this island ,its an Australian gem ,just so beautiful .Maybe I should keep this place a secret ,but then no one would get to experience this wonderful place .
We stayed at Lagoon Landing in January 2017. We booked it before the building work had been completed based on the reviews of the sister property.
Relaxation set in from the moment we landed on Lord Howe Island. Rod met us from the airstrip, gave us a guided tour of the island, pointing out the good places to eat, and delivered us to the property. He made it clear that we were to let him know when we needed a lift to one of the restaurants in the evening. A bottle of wine and some other goodies awaited our arrival. The facilities were explained and directions to the general store, out of the garden, and to the bottle shop were given. When we went to hire bikes we were told that we could have some on the following day. We were asked where we were staying and all of a sudden everything was sorted; Lisa had already made a reservation for us and we rode away there and then.
The property is just across the road from a long sandy beach, centrally located on a flat part of the island. It consists of two adjacent one bedroom bungalows and a really useful separate laundry building. It was spotless and the fittings and equipment were quality. The free wifi ran without a hitch. Rod was around most days, sweeping up the BBQ area, making sure everything was OK, and checking whether we needed a lift that evening.
Lord Howe Island is a little gem, and Rod and Lisa helped us make the most of it. Would we stay there again? Yes, in a flash!
