A place to feel safe and at peace with lovely view
The hosts from the moment we were greeted to showing us throughout the villa. Really felt at peace, a very private villa and home away from home. Would buy the property if I could!!!! Will definitely return

Villa with a stunning view
Firstly, it is not ön the beach"but on top of cliff as shown in photo. To access beach is precipitous cliff path, or short car drive. I am allergic to mosquitos and not all windows were screened and we had unwelcome "visitors"- also ants in the bed on three occasions and in my hair. Nothing was left that could have attracted them!!! Property is in glorious location, once you have mastered the very rough unmade tracks that are full of deep potholes. You know you have nearly arrived when you pass delapidated rundown sheds and farming equipment! Linen changed once a week . There is a washing machine in the unit's laundry. Gets dark by around 6.30 and there is no "street"lighting and so its quite an ädventure" to get in to town and avoid the deep potholes and animals/cows etc. who have right of way. We mostly self catered at night because of this. Our visit was for two weeks. One would have been enough.,. Norfolk Island has changed very little since I was last there 60 years ago! Be aware of high costs for petrol, food etc. A hire car is essential. Try to get car ïncluded". We didnt and it was a considerable additional expense. Also, regarding swimming pool? There is one but not for general use. It is attached to their premier accommodation. So, not on beach and no swimming pool, however, the view is fabulous and the location very peaceful.

Great villa No1 had best views
We selected Shearwater from the fabulous reviews and we were not disappointed we drove the whole island end to end and did not come across another establishment that we would swap it with. The holiday went smoothly from the time our guests met us at the airport supervised car hire and guided us back to the villa. The sea shores and headlands are amongst the best we have experienced. The only issues we had was with a number of the tour operator staff in the tour offices who could learn to be a little more friendly. But outside of that was a great holiday.
