Description from owner


Tintoela Luxury Retreat 4.5 star boutique property with stunning ocean views and includes a free rental car. Bright and sophisticated, with an emphasis on local natural materials, it's the world-class design, craftsmanship and landscaping that has created true luxury. When combined with story-book ocean views and lush fruit-filled gardens, Hunky's Homestead truly becomes the most serene refuge you can imagine.

At the heart of the Homestead is the beautiful main room, with adjoining dining room. Contemporary in design and classically Norfolk, the views from here will capture your heart. A gorgeous potbelly stove, holdover from a generation not long passed, separates the main room from the country-style kitchen. A study, laundry room, three and a half bathrooms and six bedrooms make up the rest of the home. 360° of verandah ensure you can always find your moment of serenity. So put your feet up on your private verandah and allow the beautiful ocean breeze to cleanse your soul. You've arrived in paradise for a Norfolk Island holiday that you will never forget.

Located just five minutes from town, stunning beaches, and a myriad of walking trails, Hunky's Homestead sits upon three acres of manicured hilltop above one of Norfolk's most scenic valleys. Incredible ocean views, inspired architecture and lush landscapes are at the heart of this unique and elegant accommodation.

The Homestead is also ideal for your Norfolk Island wedding, family reunion, yoga retreat, all professionally coordinated by Shuan, Tintoela's manager.

Hunky's Homestead hosts 8-10 comfortably and can accommodate up to 14.
