Perfect Presentation
Beautiful view, manicured gardens and tasteful, stylish decor in the lovely Hilli Cottage. The kitchen had everything needed including a coffee machine with pods supplied. As well as the excellent service provided by Emma, we had the pleasure of meeting the owner Laurie. We would have no hesitation recommending Tintoela cottages to the most fastidious guests.

The absolute best place to stay
Staying at Tintoela was amazing. From the very beginning meeting Emma, manager, who linked us with our hire car, then took us to our beautiful cottage. It wasn’t hard to fall in love with the location. Emma provided us with all the local places and directions that we needed to make our stay excellent. Everything was provided for our stay from coffee pods to snorkeling equipment. Will definitely come again!

Cottage with everything
Beautiful cottage overlooking lovely grounds with a view of the ocean to the north and gardens or pine trees in all directions. Apart from the rental car supplied, in which we were picked up from the airport, given an orientation tour and shown what was where in the town and historic areas, we were then taken to our cottage which was beautifully decorated and had a well equipped kitchen. There was fresh fruit, books to read, walk in wardrobe, laundry, tea, coffee, milk and all the kitchen things we needed as we made some meals (it's easier when you have allergies). Easy drive to everywhere on the island. Even some friendly black chooks that visited every day!

Perfect Getaway
My husband and I spent a week at Tintoela in October to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. We wanted our accommodation to be quiet, peaceful and private and Tintoela's Kushu Cottage was absolutely perfect as we had privacy and magical views through valleys and across the ocean from living room and bedroom. The rooms were spacious, the furnishings were tasteful and comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. You can purchase the locally grown fresh food for that quiet night at home and eat out at a different restaurant for lunch or dinner when it takes your fancy. Mountain walks, beaches and the main shopping centre are only minutes from your door. Right from the warm welcome at the airport by Pauline, the Manager's wife we knew we had chosen well. We had a wonderful time on Norfolk Island and thoroughly recommend a visit to this historical island and the orientation tour offered by Tintoela was the perfect start to our holiday. We will be back to Norfolk and will definitely stay at Tintoela.

About the neighborhood
Just over two hours from Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne by air, and even closer to New Zealand, Norfolk is the dream Island getaway, convenient enough to go door to door in under 4 hours and incredible enough to feel as though you’ve just arrived in a paradise of your very own. Multiple flights weekly ensure a Norfolk Island vacation with dates designed to your needs. Upon arriving on Norfolk Island, your host will meet you at the airport and provide you with a complimentary rental car and guide you to Tintoela's - a mere 5 minute drive from the airport. Through the heart of the Burnt Pine township, onto New Cascade Road and then along Harpers Road, you will arrive at Kushu Cottage with its spectacular setting and unrivaled views over Cascade Bay. Beautiful Norfolk Island is an outdoor enthusiast’s playground. With one third of the Island devoted to national parks and reserves, visitors can choose between a myriad of activities, catered to your specific desires. Majestic subtropical forests host a number of exquisite walking and hiking trails, many of which ocean-side, with lengths to suit every fitness level. Mountain biking tours can also be arranged. Stunning blue waters offer incredible fishing, scuba diving, snorkelling, surfing, sailing and kayaking. Looking for a more relaxing pursuit? There’s always the calm, delightful waters of Emily Bay, one of the most picturesque beaches you’ll ever find. Emily Bay is also host to the popular glass bottomed boat tours. For those seeking a more exotic or specific experience, Tintoela is proud to work with Damien Snell, one of Norfolk Island’s most fun and informative nature guides, to offer custom itineraries that you’ll remember for life. One highly recommended trip is to Philip Island for a day tour, Norfolk’s uninhabited satellite island. There you’ll experience a land few humans have ever seen first hand, taking in vistas, flora and fauna both beautiful and otherworldly. “Paradise” is how Captain James Cook described Norfolk Island when he discovered the uninhabited island in 1774. Not long after Cook’s discovery, Norfolk Island was turned into a penal colony. In 2010 the site of the former penal colony was officially added to UNESCO’s World Heritage List for being one of the best preserved historical sites in the Pacific. Late in 1856, the history of Norfolk Island took another amazing turn when the Island was generously granted by Queen Victoria to the descendants of the Mutineers of the Bounty. Today roughly a third of the Island’s inhabitants trace their lineage back to the Mutineers and their Tahitian partners and God Save the Queen remains the national anthem. Norfolk Island today is a host to a number of fascinating peoples and cultures.
