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 separately 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. Six 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. Larger groups may be able to be accommodated as we have friends with units and houses close by who may have spare rooms that can be made available. Just ask!!
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.
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 access to the fabulous pool, full kitchen, breakfast tables, eight seater formal dining table, lounge and bar.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts will interact as much or as little as required by the guests.
All guests will be personally greeted and shown their rooms and the facilities.
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.
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. We are happy to pick up and drop off our guests from Darwin Airport or the Railway Station at no charge if there are 4 or fewer guests - unfortunately our 2015 Prius iTech can only take 4 passengers! However we can arrange bus and driver hire to attractions such as Dundee Beach, Litchfield Park or Kakadu for example.
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.
My husband John and I live in a separate flat upstairs and are available to assist our guests at any time. There is another separate flat that has its own separate entrance and facilities with permanent tenants who do not interfere with our guests enjoyment of the facilities.
