Right on the Nightcliff foreshore Arafura Blue is a large house exuding that quintessential Darwin charm. Built after cyclone Tracy this property has a character that is unique to older style Darwin homes. The house retains many of its original features, is surrounded by a lush tropical garden and has a huge pool. This house is all about relaxation, whether you are a large family, a group of friends or even colleagues on a business trip you will find your perfect stay at Arafura Blue.
Budding chefs can cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen. There is a dishwasher (because holidays are too short for washing dishes!) and a second fridge should you require extra space for storing your food and drinks. Under cover BBQ also available, to take advantage of the outdoor lifestyle that Darwin has to offer.
The huge pool is for your exclusive use and large indoor and outdoor dining settings allow you to eat alfresco or in air-conditioned comfort.
There is a large LCD TV in the living room and free WiFi for staying connected. For those wishing to switch off from technology we have a selection of books available for your enjoyment. Or you could just relax with a cool drink on a sun lounger by the pool, as the sun slowly sets over the Arafura sea!
The house can sleep up to 12 people. There are five bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The first bathroom has a bath and separate shower, a toilet and a vanity. The second bathroom has a shower over bath, a toilet and a vanity.
Darwin can be a little hot so all living areas and bedrooms have their own individual air-conditioners and ceiling fans.
This house is fully self contained so you will have exclusive access to the entire house, garden and pool area.
Please note we do have a small, completely separate flat under the house which we use for ourselves when we are in town.
Nightcliff is one of the premier beach side suburbs of Darwin. There is a beautiful walking/cycling track that runs for kilometers along the foreshore. The Nightcliff pool sits on the waters edge with a lovely cafe right next door. A little further around the foreshore is the Beachfront hotel, perfect for a relaxing drink or a meal while enjoying the famous Darwin sunset. The nearby Nightcliff village is well known for its Sunday markets and all services are available close by. It is about 10km or 15 minutes drive to Darwin city.
