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.

Luxury from the arrival and pick up by owner Alex and chauffeur driven to villa with a tour of property and a personal itinerary . We added the taste of Norfolk add on package which is well worth adding it included amazing restaurants and one the homestead which we had transfers to and back which was great the location was beautiful and meals excellent.
Location stunning of the villa and well set up comfortable and luxurious as well great kitchen and laundry if your interested in cooking while your here I didn’t too many great restaurants close by and chose to dine out every day.
The pool was fantastic to cool off and having a smart tv was great at night as well as two outdoor seating areas or the pool loungers if you prefer.
The bedroom was comfortable and a large bed facing the pines with curtains and a overhead fan for cooling. The stunning views across the valley and peaceful surrounding area. The shower was oversized and bath was beautiful all well thought out and luxurious towels and products provided.
The car was fabulous to have and phone provided to use by accomodation as Telstra doesn’t work on island.
The drop off at the airport and later checkout was appreciated by Alex & Sarah.
Recommend staying here for a luxurious stay the owners are amazing as well as their luxury villas will definitely return but stay longer it went too quick.

Alex and Sarah were amazing! The accommodation was even better than the photos! Daily housekeeping. The pool was stunning. Alex and Sarah went above and beyond, for any request.

My partner proposed while we were staying on the island in this accomodation, and Alex and Sarah made the proposal so special by lighting the fire pit, lining it with candles and leaving roses for us in the room!

The car was very nice, a VW, which added to the luxurious experience of the villas.

The location was around 5 minutes drive from both Emily Bay, and the main town, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle.

They aren’t kidding when they say the island provides the views and they provide the luxury.

Very highly recommend this accomodation to anyone wanting to splurge while in Norfolk Island, as there is no other accomodation quite like it!

Alex and Sarah provide an outstanding blend of luxurious quality and personalized hospitality. My partner and I enjoyed a week at Glencar, split between both villas due to other reservations. Some of the key highlights of our trip were the picnic, inc homemade sushi and sweet treats, supreme quality of decor and car provided and attentive nature of Alex and Sarah.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway - and don't forget to add the Taste of Norfolk to your booking! You will be impressed!

My husband and I stayed here for a week. Alex and Sarah were the perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble from before we arrived with Alex making restaurant reservations for us.
We stayed in the Ocean View Villa, the villa is as luxurious as the photos.
It’s all the little things like having a platter of all your favourite foods, including fresh sourdough straight out of the oven, laid out when you arrive.
Everything was clean and so well presented, right down to the scents that are used.
A comfortable bed with beautiful linens, the most amazing bathroom…..no expensive has been spared to make your stay amazing.
The use of a VW to drive around the island was great for us as we loved exploring all that Norfolk has to offer.
We cannot recommend Glencar Luxury Villas enough, book now and escape to the most beautiful island and stay at the best that Norfolk Island can offer in accommodation.

Just home from our lovely week on Norfolk Island, spent at Glencar Luxury Villas. So pleased we chose to stay here. Everything from the personalised pickup from the airport to the platter awaiting us on arrival and the inclusion of a new car to explore the island set the scene for a fantastic week. Sarah and Alex were great hosts and couldn't have been more welcoming. The villas were gorgeous and the extra attention to the little details like surprising us with a very generous home prepared picnic lunch on our anniversary was very thoughtful and greatly appreciated. We will be recommending Glencar to all our friends.

Visited for my husbands birthday and, firstly, the setting was beautiful and the quality and finishes ate superb.
We particularly appreciated the private pool for skinny dipping.
Our host met us at the airport and there was a welcome platter provided that kept us in snacks for the whole week

The car was included and, with it, a local phone for calls and GPS! Brilliant idea.
We would recommend this place to anyone as a great base for a wonderful holiday.

BTW book the villa and only book the introductory coach tour, then organise each day once you are there.

Alex and Sarah provided that rare personal touch. A hamper awaited us with food catered for our preferences. As you walk in through the front door there is a window that overlooks the magnesium pool and the majestic views of the sweeping valley. Clean, beautiful thick towels, fisher and paykel new washing machine and dryer, Aesop hand wash, shampoo and conditioner. The bed overlooked the scenic views which delighted us with a stunning sunrise. And the comforts of home, apps loaded onto the TV and a wonderful car to use for the trips around the island with snorkelling gear and mobile phone to use. All in all, 5 stars and I’d recommend without any hesitation for those looking for a serene getaway. Alex and Sarah were also lovely hosts.

From when we were met at the Airport by Sarah to when Alex dropped us off there again, we experienced a perfect balance of privacy and assistance. We appreciated the luxury of the well-appointed Villa and comfortable car, and arriving to the scent of freshly warmed bread to accompany the personalised welcome platter signalled the thoughtful touches that Sarah and Alex offer. We recommend it to anyone looking for that touch of luxury in a Norfolk Island holiday.

It was a pleasure to stay at Glencar. Every little detail has been considered by Alex and Sarah. We enjoyed the plunge pool, magnesium bath, amazing views while having a drink on the deck, luxury linen on the most comfortable king sized bed I've ever slept on. The fully equipped kitchen including nespresso coffee machine had all we needed for our stay. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Our villa was stunning! We fell in love with it the moment we walked in. There were so many fine details that added to the luxury and fine taste of the accommodation. Bedding, towelling, Aesop products, gas lounge room fire, walk in shower, back light mirror…honestly so much to list! We were torn between wanting to stay in the villa all day and night and wanting to explore the island! Sarah and Alex made our stay so easy to enjoy all the best parts of the island and its activities. Being equipped with a phone that worked locally, a great car(s), snorkelling and beach equipment we couldn’t have asked for more. Everyone who’s seen our villa shots cannot believe how gorgeous it is! A private pool, mountain, ocean AND sunset views, it’s the best spot on the island. We couldn’t stay anywhere better on the Island and are so grateful for Sarah and Alex’s wonderful hosting.
