We recently went to Norfolk Island for our Wedding and stayed at Tintoela. There was a group of us that had gone over for a week and we hired out all three houses at Tintoela, which was perfect for us and the rest of our group. We had privacy, if we wanted it but also the homestead was big enough if we wanted to have everyone together for larger meals. I recommend using Geoff and his expertise to help plan your wedding as his local knowledge makes your experience less stressful and he takes care of all the little things that make your day/week perfect. I would recommend Tintoela to anyone going to Norfolk Island and even if you are just hiring one of the cottages you will have privacy from the others the design and layout has been done really well over the whole complex. Thanks again to Tintoela and Geoff for a remarkable time on Norfolk Island.

I visited Tintoela Homestead on a recent holiday to Norfolk Island. Tintoela Homestead is the perfect getaway for a group of Couples or Families. The Homestead is very roomy and the views looking out to the ocean are magnificent. The spacious Kitchen and dining room allow for self catering whilst on your getaway.

My husband and I had our wedding at Norfolk island earlier this year. Our families came along for the destination wedding and we all stayed at Tintoela. We booked out all three houses and used the Homestead as the base where we would all meet and have our large evening meals. The accommodation in each of the three houses was perfect. They were of a very high standard and in a beautiful setting. The homestead was gorgeous with the wrap-around porch and the views were breathtaking. It was a perfect place for a holiday. Geoff, the Manager, was amazing and helped organise our big day down to the finer details including arranging a gluten free chocolate gateau wedding cake for the reception. He definitely cannot be thanked enough. We heard about Tintoela from reading Trip Advisor, and we thoroughly recommend it to you. We will return. Thanks Geoff!

We have stayed at Tintoela 7 times now and never been disappointed. The view of the rolling hills and view out to the ocean is magnificent. The cottages are so placed that they are very private. The grounds are well maintained and one feels that it is your own bit of paradise. The cottages are very clean and have everything one could possible need. Even a picnic set and beach towels for those occasion when you feel like enjoying the many places on beautiful Norfolk Island. Emily Bay is a must. One has to mention the amazing Golf course along the ocean edge .After a game of golf there is nothing nicer than enjoying lunch on the verandah with the view of the golf course and the view out to sea. Geoff and Pauline are always very helpful, friendly and caring to your every need. We now feel it is like our home away from home. Looking forward to our next visit to Tintoela

My husband and I spent a week at Tintoela in April. We wanted our accommodation to be quiet, peaceful and private. The big house at Tintoela was perfect. It was like staying a in a beautiful old plantation house. The breezes wafting through the windows, blowing the curtains and the views to the ocean were glorious, changing every day. I had fun playing the old piano, the music echoing through the house. Having the hire car included was an extra bonus. The house was immaculate and had everything we needed and more. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when we visit Norfolk Island again. Thanks Geoff for making Tintoela a perfect paradise.

My Husband and I spent 10 days at Tintoela in March. The Cottage was magnificent with everything one could want. Geoff and the staff were very welcoming and looked after us well.
Tintoela is set in a beautiful location with mouth watering views out to sea looking across the beautiful landscaped property. We were supplied with a free hire car waiting for us at the Airport. Nothing is far away on Norfolk and the people are so friendly and relaxed.
We are looking forward to returning to Tintoela as all the previous guests have stated and done in the Guest Book.
We would highly recommend this Accomodation to anyone looking for the perfect cottage with the perfect view. The privacy is also amazing. Don't hesitate, BOOK NOW.

Our group of 6 mature ladies stayed at Tintoela in Hunky's Homestead February 2013. We have booked our return for later this year as we could not wait to return. Everything you find in 5 star motels we found in Hunky's and more. House is superb, views relaxing & grounds beautiful. Geoff & Pauline are the Managers are very obliging and maintain the property very well. All of us enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere & the location. Norfolk Island is still a place to have a busy or totally relaxed holiday, throwing in some duty free shopping. A must visit more than once. We have other friends intending a visit since we showed our photo's of our last visit.
