눉If guests weren't planning on driving they need to inform the lodge in advance as otherwise a hire car will be waiting at the airport, and the lodge location on the far side of the island makes walking to shops or tourist attracting impractical. Note that shortly after guests leave the car at the airport on departure the hire company will take it away (meaning you can't easily check-in then quickly drive to the shops). Locations like the Captain Cook landing site appear close by on the map but would require climbing / descending multiple steep hills if on foot. Rather than any air conditioning there's a single fan - might be an issue in mid-summer. There's no turning circle for the covered parking, so you have to reverse onto the front lawn in order to drive out forward. There are no staff on site so you're reliant on the emergency number if there are any issues (which there weren't). If you're not used to harmless mantises/large spiders etc, there are plenty in the gardens. Had to be out by 8:30am on the final day so the property could be cleaned (looks like the cleaners arrived at 8:50) - wasn't charged car hire for this day but you'll have to drive up the mountain or something to fill the time before the flight. Also worth noting that Anson Bay itself is half a mile away at the bottom of a cliff road that might put off most drivers and walkers.
눇Secluded wooded location in peaceful part of the island about 5 miles from the main commercial town and main tourist accommodation with easy road access to the rest of the island. Booked an apartment but was upgraded to the two bedroom house (third bedroom is in an annex). Property is large with covered parking, front and back gardens, covered front and back seating areas with private barbeque area, stove and washing machine. Spacious property - single L-shaped room servers as kitchen, living and dining area. Also has a master bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom (shower only) as well as multiple cupboards / storage areas. Kitchen equipped with everything you're likely to need including microwave, toaster, oven, fridge, pantry, cutlery, plates etc & is likely to be stocked with adequate tea/coffee/milk on arrival. TV had wide selection of Australian channels and there also seemed to be a heating oven and an electric heater in the main room. There are washing lines out back next to the water tanks, all the windows have fly nets, stereo & mobile phone are provided along with plenty of towels and basic toiletries. The two apartments are semi-detached and also appeared to be a reasonable size but aren't so secluded, don’t have their own gardens or barbeque areas and don't have covered parking. Guests are met at the airport and drive themselves to the property (under escort) in the automatic hire car that is included in the price (daily insurance is extra and is paid on arrival at the lodge to ensure cover). This is a quite part of the island and a car will be needed. The complimentary tour is with the island’s main tour company and guests will have to drive themselves to the commercial town to board their bus (mine was an afternoon tour – covers about a third of the island). Staff sort out all payments / departure times etc on arrival at the lodge, then you won't see them again unless you call their emergency number.
