This photo is of owners Laurie and Hunky with Geoff, Tintoela's manager, in the middle.

Geoff takes great pride in ensuring that Tintoela's guests have a a wonderful visit. He also enjoys looking after Tintoela, including Hunky's Homestead and Hilli and Kushu Cottages. Geoff is a keen g. which is apparent when experiencing the 3 1/2 acres of beautiful grounds. He also enjoys travel and sports, most recently combining the two as a presenter at the London Olympics.

Tintoela means sweetheart in Norfolk. Fittingly, it is here where Hunky Evans, a direct descendent of the Bounty Mutineers, chose to build his dream home with his Canadian sweetheart, Laurie. Designed and crafted by Hunky, himself a master builder, the beautiful Island-style Hunky’s Homestead is where Hunky and Laurie raised their five children. Excited at the opportunity to share Tintoela with visitors, Kushu and Hilli Cottages were built and the property was meticulously prepared for its next chapter as the premiere Norfolk Island boutique property.

Today, the family resides in Canada yet their heart remains with their sweetheart Tintoela on Norfolk Island. As all those who have stayed at Tintoela can attest, it becomes part of your heart from the moment you arrive, embracing you with beauty, comfort and serenity. The feeling is almost magic. A lot like the feeling you had when you met your first sweetheart.

Thank you for visiting. We take great pride in sharing Tintoela with you.
