About

#1 of 4 villas in Norfolk Island
Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
This private peninsula was initially a retreat for advertising guru Peter Clarke and his wife Charisse. In the 1990's they created a private retreat for others to enjoy this exceptional property with them. The property maintains the retreat appeal with just six well-spaced villas, a spa house, and the onsite manager's cottage. Sensational views, tranquillity and comfort from each villa were paramount in the development. From the moment you make a booking, the managers and Charisse will assist you in getting the best of what Norfolk has to offer.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our stay here was absolutely everything we could have dreamed of, comfortable, views to dye for, along with tours all over the island. Great history told by guides on your tours who know everything and everyone. Good food places as well. Roads are a shocker, but worth the trip for the views!!

WOW WOW WOW! This place will not disappoint. The villas are so luxurious and well appointed. There is every appliance you can imagine. The scenery is beyond belief. The hosts, Jennifer and Richard, are so obliging and nothing is too much trouble for them.

This is a beautiful place to stay. Views of the beaches and coastline set on the cliff tops. Villa 5 has the best view from all rooms and is very spacious. 10 mins out of the township area but worth it for it’s natural beauty. Hosts Jennifer and Richard fabulous.

Our week long stay was far too short. We will be back. The accomodation and scenic views will blow your mind. It is spectacular! Don’t forget to visit the wharf when the fish sale is on and the scraps are fed to the many sharks The daily visitors (cows) are a welcome sight Our hosts Jennifer and Richard will look after your stay like you are royalty

It was a stress-free welcome being met at the airport by Kerry and Allen and being escorted to Shearwater in our hire vehicle. The apartment was spacious and clean. The view was stunning. Having been to many lookouts around Norfolk we looked forward to returning everyday to enjoy the tranquility and beautiful view looking down onto Cresswell Bay. We walked down from Shearwater one day and thoroughly enjoyed the bay.

We recently stayed at Shearwater Scenic Villas in a 1 bedroom villa. The villa (number 5) was spacious and very comfortable. The views from both inside and outside (balcony) were outstanding. The villa was very well maintained with everything you need. Kerry and Allan were friendly and gave us plenty of good information about the island. We would highly recommend you stay here when visiting Norfolk Island.

If you are thinking about coming to this beautiful island take this tip at dont book anywhere else other than Shearwater Villas. Yes its a 5-7 minute drive to town but the view, position and privacy that you get is worth it. Its also just around the cnr from my humble opinion the best restaurant on the island Homestead Restaurant. The managers Kerry and Allan at Shearwater were very warm and hospitable meeting us at the airport and giving us any help that we required. We stayed at villa no 5 with a direct view back to historic Kingston and Emily bay. Best Best Best position in the Island we have loved every minute Thankyou again Kerry Tony and Louise Pischedda Camden NSW

Spectacular view, clean & comfortable villas, friendly & helpful service. Private & quiet. We made a last minute booking, Kerry & Allan went above and beyond to co-ordinate a car rental, fishing trip & other recommendations. We were met at the airport on arrival & given the scenic drive to get our bearings of the island. Thank You. We hope to return again one day.
