We were 9 friends travelling together to have a fun adventure & enjoy each others company. Greeted @ the Norfolk airport by a very happy & pleasant Neil who gave us an informative tour of Burnt Pine before taking us to our lovely accommodation for the week. Explained everything that we needed to know & made us feel very welcome.... More

This medium sized property is well located at one end of the main town shopping strip. It’s a comfortable, level walk to most shops, cafes etc. and the Bowling and Leagues Clubs although the RSL may be a bit too much of a walk for some. The resort entry is just across the road from the local Tourism Office and... More

Thank you very much for your great, in-depth review of Fantasy Island's location, accommodation and features. We were really pleased to have you staying with us and hope you'll be back again soon! P.S. You'll be pleased to know that the showers in our other two blocks of apartments are much simpler to operate! More

Glad that I chose to stay at Fantasy Island Resort for 7 days, including a weekend. Host Sharon told me that the Saturday and Sunday markets right opposite the Resort had excellent local produce for sale and must not be missed. I listened to Sharon and was at the markets at opening times (Sat.7.30am and Sun.8.00 'ish') to pick up... More

Wonderful Hosts, couldn't have done more for us to make our stay on Norfolk Island so enjoyable and hassle free. Sharon met us at the airport, drove us around town to show us where restaurants, shops, emergency services, etc were, then helped us settle into our room. Rooms very comfortable, well appointed and maintained. View from the balcony over the... More

We did not stay at Fantasy Island but Sharon rented us a car for the final three days on the Island. I believe the cars are normally part of the accommodation packages, but any that are not used are then hired out. We had hired a car from another company which we returned just after lunch as it was poorly... More

My wife and I (no longer young) spent a week at this resort recently. Our flight from Auckland was long delayed and Sharon had placed extra food in our studio unit in the event that dining out was not an option when we arrived. The following morning Sharon gave us a tour of Burnt Pine pointing out places of interest.... More

Our family of 6 adults had the absolute pleasure of visiting this beautifully appointed boutique resort. Fantasy Island is a small and personal establishment. They are to be highly commended for the attention to finer details, airport collection, village tour, organising 1/2 day tour, booking a resort dinner function and more.
