Beachcomber Lodge

The Payten family, sixth generation descendants of the first ever settlers to call beautiful Lord Howe Island home, invites you to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the intimate surrounds of their family guesthouse set on 5 acres of beautiful Island property. Beachcomber Lodge is one of the original restored Island homesteads, secluded amongst tropical gardens and Kentia palms, with splashes of colour from fragrant frangipanis and hibiscus surrounding eight private, self-contained apartments.

A short stroll from Beachcomber down palm fringed roads will take you to either stunning Ned’s Beach, renowned for fish feeding and snorkeling, or Middle Beach, a secluded and private beach (and nearly always you will have this beach to yourself). Beachcomber is also located close to shops, cafes, restaurants, post office, all beaches, tours, attractions, and only minutes’ walk to the beginning of several bush walking tracks.
