Enjoy our wonderful Northern Territory hospitality and luxurious setting with water views towards the CBD and Charles Darwin National Park. Relax in the resort style pool, a luscious tropical garden and comfortable furnishings with all conveniences.

Our listing is unique as the house is an extremely large and very modern Art Deco design, fully air conditioned and beautifully appointed. The location is very quiet and peaceful; but is only 6 minutes by car to the CBD yet close to the major roads to take you quickly out of Darwin to explore the fabulous Northern Territory. 

There are 3 double rooms for short stay rental per night and discounts apply if bookings are per week or per month or for large groups. The slightly smaller rooms rent per night at the advertised price and the larger rooms are a little more. All rooms have their own ensuite bathrooms, kitchenettes and lounges. Eight adults or 4 adults and 4 children and a baby can be comfortably accommodated in either twin or king sized bed configuration, but smaller numbers or couples are very welcome. 

Our rooms are decorated by unique Aboriginal art prints on fabric created exclusively for a local business "Ausdesigns". This business employs and supports local disabled people and we support them.
For further information about with the artwork, please see the detailed descriptions to be found by Googling "Ausdesigns" in Palmerston which describe each of the artists and their stories.

Guest access

All guests have fully serviced rooms (sheets and towels changed weekly) with ensuites or bathrooms; kitchenettes with fridge; own TV; king sized beds (or two singles if required); lounge and coffee table. Guests have sole access to the fabulous pool, full kitchen, breakfast tables, eight seater formal dining table, lounge and bar and no facilities are shared with anyone else. The house is very large and there are plenty of private spaces for guests - for example there are five TVs in the bedrooms and lounges.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts will interact as much or as little as required by the guests.
Where possible all guests will be personally greeted and shown their rooms and the facilities. But we do have lockbox facilities if required,

The neighbourhood

The house is set high overlooking the Bayview Marina and has wonderful views. There is a very pleasant walking path right around the Marina and a park a short stroll away with children's play and adult exercise equipment. The neighbourhood consists of up market, modern executive homes and tropical gardens.

Getting around

There is a bus service to Bayview and an excellent road system. Taxi services (including private hire cars) are readily available in Darwin as are a good range of hire cars, including 4WDs. Bus and driver hire to attractions such as Dundee Beach, Litchfield Park or Kakadu are available.

We recommend hiring a vehicle as that is an easy and time efficient way to get around.

Other things to note

There are several stairs at the front door (see photo) and carpeted stairs between the two guest levels and the ground level containing the full kitchen, dining,bar and pool and entertainment area. The house may not be suitable for some guests with mobility issues so please let us know.
My husband John and I live in a separate fully self contained flat upstairs and are available to assist our guests at any time. We do share the Foyer area with guests.  There is another separate, fully self contained flat that has its own separate entrance and garages with permanent tenants who do not interfere with our guests enjoyment of the facilities.

Bayview is very well situated, being only 6 minutes by car to the CBD of Darwin or about the same distance to the Showground. It is about 20 minutes by car to the Northern Suburbs or Palmerston or only a couple of minutes onto Tiger Brennan Drive which takes a driver out of Darwin and onto the Stuart Highway and onto other Top End delights such as Litchfield Park, Dundee Beach and Kakadu.

We are about 20 minutes from the Darwin Airport and the Railway Station. If there are 4 or fewer paasengers, we are very happy to pick guests up and drop them off - our 2015 Prius iTech can only cary 4 passengers! Buses can be arranged at cost for larger groups, particularly if guests wish to have a personal tour of places both within and outside Darwin.

"Best place in Darwin to stay!" This property was absolutely breathtaking, even better than the photos. Beautiful views and quiet neighbours. Sue was also a great host! Highly recommend

- Shellharbour,


Amazing property and hosts that were everything you could possibly want and more. Will definitely book again for our next Darwin holiday.

- Shailer Park,


Beautiful large home with plenty of space for everyone to relax. House is well appointed and all rooms having an ensuite and kitchen area made it very comfortable for 3 couples to stay together. Lovely views of the city and easy to get into the city.

- Adelaide,


Sue and john were lovely hosts, making sure we had everything we needed and accomodating our family as if we were her own. The kids spent hours in the pool and rooms were super comfy. We would highly recommend sue’s place and thank her for sharing their piece of paradise with us.



We recently stayed here for a week in April 2018. We were made very welcome upon arrival and throughout our stay. To us, it felt like a home away from home. Sue & John are wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!
