TINTOELA. Norfolk’s Luxury Retreat
Our Resort Report.

OUR Thoughts on Tintoela, Harpers Road, Cascade, Norfolk Island
It’s hard to imagine a more picturesque outlook anywhere on Earth.  As you travel the 1.5km from the Burnt Pine Commercial Centre of Norfolk Island, along Taylors Road, then New Cascades Road and into Harpers Road, the outlook just gets better and better. Then, as you turn into either of the two driveways into Tintoela you are confronted with a jaw-dropping vista of gently rolling green hills on both sides of a beautiful valley scattered with Norfolk Island Pines and, on a clear day, 600 metres away and framed by the valley, the dark blue waters of Cascade Bay and the ocean. Talk about spectacular and special!

The top driveway services the 2 Bedroom Hilli Cottage and the 1 Bedroom Kushu Cottage. The second driveway further down Harpers Road is the entrance to the 3 storey Hunkey’s Homestead. Neither of the buildings impinges on the view of the others.

A premium 5-seater car is provided for guests in each cottage, you only pay for the daily insurance cost and for filling the tank with petrol before you leave.  For those staying in the Homestead, extra cars can be provided at a similar rate.

This is a wonderful spot for a relaxing holiday.  All the accommodation is of a very high standard.  As well as being a great place for individuals, honeymooners, couples and families.  The 3 units comprising  Tintoela can be reserved together for a small wedding, executive retreat, corporate event, family reunion or any small group event of up to 18 people looking for a high standard of comfort and facilities.
