Perfect location. Quiet, with views over Kingston. Only noise is the roosters that start around 2.00am, but that is expected on Norfolk, regardless of where you stay. A bit dated, but very clean. Perfectly suited our needs. A short drive to Burnt Pine town and only 2 minutes drive to Kingston. Brett is very accommodating and nothing is too much... More

We stayed in Room 7 for a week. The views from this unit are spectacular but the room was a bit ho-hum. It was generally clean but could do with a good scrub and spruce up (windows, walls, and kitchen tiles were a bit grimy). The linen was clean and the bed was comfy. The thing that ruined our stay...

We had two weeks on Norfolk Island and felt like we were locals when we left. I certainly think I had waved to the whole population while driving around (its what you do - everybody waves!). I think we had also seen everything the island has to offer at least once! Norfolk Island is basically a country town in the... More

I stayed in Unit 1 for a week, looking south over Kingston settlement, Phillip & Nepean Islands & the beautiful ocean. One bedroom, neat & clean, comfy bed, plenty of space, furnishings a little tired, but when you remember everything has to come by ship & lighter, you don't expect 5-star. The apartment is completely self-catered, so first job is... More

Why the need for 5 star accommodation when most of the day is spent exploring the island? This place suited me most admirably. Dated, maybe, but very clean and comfortable, with stunning views. I had Unit 1 for 3 nights, then Unit 2 for the other 4. Full marks to owner Brett for his willingness to assist, and his gesture... More

These apartments have a magnificent view overlooking Kingston Penal settlement with an easy walk down the hill, with Phillip Island in the distance. We stayed in Unit 2 with a great view. The two bedrooms were comfortable and self contained with everything you need. You should expect accommodation on Norfolk to be clean and comfortable, not luxurious and trendy. They... More
