You can't go wrong at Shearwater!

We had the most amazing stay at Shearwater. You can't get better hosts.. they went above and beyond. Every morning we woke to a stunning view of Kingston. Our villa had everything we needed and more with unexpected, homely touches to welcome us. The villas are spacious and all with a great view, gorgeous surrounds and we were so sad to leave after our 7 days. We can only highly recommend Shearwater. We were so happy with our choice and look forward to returning again.

Wonderful place to stay.

Pros: Everything !
Cons: A pen with the comment book. We didn't have an airer for washing.
Location: I enjoyed the spa & the free produce.
Loved the privacy but still a close drive to Kingston and Burnt Pine. Management extremely helpful. Magnificent view from our villa. Villas not on top of each other. Villa for 2 very spacious and lacked nothing.

Lovely unit with awesome views

Pros: Everything, quiet, comfortable, private, easy access to everything, beautiful accommodation, has everything you need and happy to help.
Cons: As above, Only the fan.
A wonderful place to holiday, definately would stay again. The owner and managers were great, always happy offer advise on where to visit, places to eat or just say hello. The one and only thing I would sunset is maybe a fan in the room as sometimes it can get quite warm.

Wonderful views from cliff top across to Kingston

Location: Snorkelling, swimming at Bumboras beach, bird watching.
This was my 4th visit to beautiful Norfolk Island and my 2nd stay of a week each time at Shearwater Villas in the Tropic Bird studio. I love the tranquility and sense of peace; the sweeping views across the Pacific Ocean to nearby Phillip and Nepean Islands, as well as down to Kingston pier; the towering Norfolk Pine trees; the swimming pool with loungers and the rural aspect of the owner's 5 beautiful caramel coloured cows saying hello across the fence! The studio apartment is perfect for a solo traveller or a couple. It is compact, but contains everything you need. the hire car which is included in the rate, was modern and economical- an important consideration on Norfolk Island as petrol is expensive! I was fortunate to meet the charming and friendly owner of Shearwater, Charisse Clarke, this visit. She and her managers, Rachel and Linden, all made me feel very welcome. From the front lawn of Tropic Bird, I was able to watch the ship at anchor off Kingston, being unloaded by the men in their lighters. This is quite an experience. There are lovely sunrise and sunset views from Shearwater and nearby Point Ross. The stars are quite brilliant as there is no air pollution and bird watching from your cliff top position at Shearwater, is wonderful.
