Plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

Being two singles and a couple, our little group spilled out into the lounge room for sleeping and even with this, never felt crowded or uncomfortable. A generously proportioned and equipped apartment. Fantastic location for Canberra. This would be my pick for future visits, without hesitation.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and my elderly parents stayed at The White House and we couldn't have asked for more. The place was clean, bright and quietly tucked away with everything we needed for a comfortable and memorable stay. We'd recommend The White House to anyone looking for a getaway.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The White House was the perfect home away from home for our extended family weekend getaway. The house is exceptionally well filled and organised. And the heating worked well on the coldest weekend Canberra has experienced in over 20 years. Thanks to the host Chris for a superb spot. It's a little out of the city centre which suited us well but there's no street lighting so it does feel very dark if you're coming and going at night time.

Owner's Response: We're very pleased to know you enjoyed your stay at the White House Sarah. And thanks for your feedback on the lighting. Sometimes our guests can accidentally turn the motion sensors off without us knowing. As this doesn't help our next guests, I'll get my electrician to fix this.

Excellent, would stay again

  • 5 of 5

The property has everything needed for a stay of any length. Ideal for 2 people. Good for 4 people but the access to the bathroom could be better. Apart from that it is well thought out, very comfortable, good outdoor seating and very quiet.
