Whichever stunning accommodation you choose, all are situated overlooking one of Norfolk Island's most scenic and serene valleys, designed with luxurious relaxation in mind. Bright and sophisticated, with an emphasis on local natural materials, it's the world-class design, craftsmanship and landscaping that has created true luxury.

So put your feet up on your private veranda and allow the beautiful ocean breeze to cleanse your soul. You've arrived in paradise for a Norfolk Island holiday that you will never forget.

Hunky's Homestead (Six Bedroom)

Hunky's Homestead, is a six bedroom traditional Island home with the sophistication and attention to detail of a world class luxury retreat. At the heart of the Homestead is the beautiful main room, with adjoining dinning room. Contemporary in design and classically Norfolk, the views from here will capture your heart. A gorgeous potbelly stove, holdover from a generation not long passed, separates the main room from the country-style kitchen. A study, laundry room, three and half bathrooms and six bedrooms make up the rest of the home. 360° of verandah ensure you can always find your moment of serenity.

Hunky's Homestead is ideal for your Norfolk Island wedding, family reunion, yoga retreat or conference.

The Homestead hosts 6 -8 comfortably but can accommodate up to 10.

Hilli Cottage (Two Bedroom)

Hilli Cottage, beach house beautiful and bright, is an open plan, high ceilinged two bedroom ideal for small families or groups of friends. Gabled windows reveal glimpses of young Norfolk Island pines shooting for the skies. Lush gardens frame the cottage yet it is the view, majestically suspended in front, that will take your breath away. Two luxurious bedrooms with ensuites, available with either king or twin beds, are complimented by an airy living space, centrepiece fire place, bright kitchen and dining room. The front patio invites lounging, barbequing and getting-lost-in-the-views.

Hilli is the Norfolk language word for 'feeling in a lazy mood'. While at Tintoela don't be surprised if you're feeling 'hilli' relaxing amid the comforts of your luxury accommodation with a glass of wine, soaking up the view.

Hilli Cottage comfortably sleeps 4 though can accommodate up to 6.

Kushu Cottage (One Bedroom)

Kushu Cottage, a delightful one bedroom with breathtaking ocean views, is ideal for a couple on a romantic getaway or a pair of friends looking to catch up, Elegantly set over a single level, the cottage features a large bedroom, beautifully appointed ensuite, a spacious kitchen with breakfast bar and a living room designed with relaxation in mind. The bedroom features the option of a luxurious king bed or matching twins. Though the ocean beckons from every room, it is often the private patio, surrounded by verdant garden and the ocean beyond that leaves you feeling as though you've found your very own private paradise. Kushu Cottage is also a favourite amongst romantics, offering a perfect hideaway for a Norfolk Island honeymoon or a serene island wedding.

Kushu, in case you were wondering, means 'I'm feeling good' in Norfolk's language. We guarantee you'll be feeling Kushu by the end of your stay at Tintoela.
