About the property

We would love to invite you to stay in our home away from home.

Located in one of Darwin's sought-after suburbs (10 mins from the CBD), our place is a classic tropical elevated Top End family home.

With three bedrooms upstairs (2 queen rooms, 1 room of 2 singles) and an optional fully self-contained studio apartment downstairs (1 queen w/ its own bathroom), this house is great for groups and families. There is unlimited WiFi, a large screenTV, a stereo, and even board games to keep everyone entertained. (For more information, the downstairs self-contained apartment is listed separately as Sunset Studio.)

Our newly renovated kitchen has all the essentials you need to feel at home. Cook and bake to your hearts content. Or relax on the verandah and dine whilst you look out into the tropical style garden. We are fully air-conditioned, although you are unlikely to need it when our lovely bifold doors and louvres let the breezes through.

The property is fully fenced with off street parking for 4 cars. We welcome families and are happy for you to bring your pets (although we do ask that they stay outside).

There is a swing set in the garden for the kids and a cool spa (fenced) to take a refreshing dip.

Our home is a few doors down from the famous Sunday Rapid Creek Markets where you can sample amazing local tropical fruit and vegetables and taste a range of food and drinks from many countries.

The nearby local shopping centre has a remarkable corner store (you will find it hard to need something that they don't have!) and Darwin's only organic fruit and vegetable shop, Greenies. There are also a pizza and Indian takeaways and a Japanese cafe. Out the front of the shops are buses that will get you to most places in Darwin that you may need to go.

We are well located for many of the town's features. It's only a 10 minute walk to the Nightcliff foreshore and Casuarina beach as well as Darwin's well-known Jingili Watergardens. There are large playgrounds for the kids nearby, with a small one a few doors down. We are conveniently close to the university, the airport, Marrara Stadium, and the hospital.

Please note: This is a family rental house. While it is suitable for family gatherings and special occasions it is not suitable for loud parties. This is our own home and we are very happy to share it with others when we are away. We like our guests to treat it as they would their own.

We look forward to hearing from you and hope to help make your stay in Darwin comfortable and cosy.


Our advertised pricing is for the upstairs only with an additional fee of $80 pn if you would like to use the downstairs self-contained studio as well.

We can provide 2 trundle beds if required for $15 per night each

Usually if you do not require the studio apartment we will rent this out separately. ( this is negotiable )

We have a minimum stay of 4 nights. We will try to accommodate stays of less than 4 nights but may then need to charge a cleaning fee. In the low season we have reduced rates for longer stayz. Should you require a shorter stay still get in touch and we can discuss rates.

We require a refundable security deposit (or bond) of $500.00

Please note that prices may change and are at the discretion of the owner.
