Emerald on the Lake - tranquility in Palmerston

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Emerald on the Lake is comfortable, home-style accommodation which is located in a quiet, no through road in the suburbs of Palmerston. The house is located opposite a lake with uninterrupted views of the water from your front windows and yard. There are many local ducks, birds and turtles to view from the house.

Emerald on the Lake is a 2 bedroom home which is perfectly suited to the travelling couple or small family. The main bedroom features a comfortable king-sized bed, whilst the second bedroom features a single bed with a trundle which can be set up as a split-king.

Emerald on the Lake is ideally located within easy walking distance to public transport, restaurants and shops, and is an easy 5 minute stroll to the golf course. The golf course winds through the suburb and around the many lakes making a picturesque evening or morning walk.

Fully air-conditioned and with its own plunge pool, Emerald on the Lake is well equipped to escape the tropical heat. A gas barbecue is available outside for entertaining in the pleasant tropical back yard.

The kitchen is fully equipped with essential items if you choose to cook at home. There is a coffee plunger and limited supplies of tea, coffee and sugar. The laundry has a front loader washing machine, as well as other basic essentials to improve your holiday stay. Quality linens have been used throughout to increase the comfort and luxury of the home.

We believe in environmental sustainability and have provided storage for recycling cans and bottles. Money raised from the cans and bottles of guests will support a local animal rescue group.

The house has a TV, DVD player and micro-stereo with Ipod dock for your music selection. There is also a range of DVD’s and a collection of board games for quiet nights in.

The owners have lived in this house for many years and believe we know what you need to make your holiday perfect. If we have missed something, we encourage feedback so that we can improve for future guests.

Emerald on the lake is available for short stays of 3 nights or more, and executive rental of 6 weeks or more. Out of respect to our neighbors, we will not accept bookings for more than 4 guests. We have a no-smoking policy inside the house, although ashtrays are provided externally.

Please note: Parents with very young children will need to consider that there is a lot of glass furniture including coffee tables and stands which could be a hazard.

About Janelle Coleman

I was born in Adelaide and grew up in Darwin. I have attended school and university here and work as a social worker. I love music and travelling and am currently studying to specialize my work skills.

I am a helpful person and having lived in Darwin for a long time, I can help you out with information on services, what to see and where to go in your time here.

Why Janelle Coleman chose Holtze

I purchased this property as my first home in Darwin and I fell in love with it the minute I walked in. It just had (and still has) a nice, welcoming feel about it. The home is close to everything you need and I always found it nice to walk here in the mornings and see the bird life on the lakes, and to be able to wander to the golf club on a Friday night for a bite to eat and drink. It's because the house is so perfectly situated that I decided I couldn't sell it and decided to share it with others.

What makes this house unique

This house is close to everything you need. It is lake fronted and on a no-through road so there is minimal traffic and noise. Still, there is a bus stop, a salon and spa and 2 restaurants all within 500 meters. Golfers will love the proximity to the Palmerston golf course!

Within a couple of kilometers, you have Woolworths, Coles, shopping centers, cafes, more restaurants, 2 cinemas and a water park.

The property also has a lovely pool, and a great outdoor area which you need in Darwin. There is air-conditioning throughout the home for those that need to escape the heat, and a cupboard full of DVD's and games for the kids.

Emerald on the Lake - tranquility in Palmerston
average rating of 4.75 based on 4 reviews

This property was perfect for us. So quiet and peaceful and we felt totally safe at all times.

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed. The hosts Heather and Tony were just fabulous. Nothing was too much trouble and a problem (my fault) on our first day was handled quickly and easily with no drama at all. All communication with them was great and if we ever come back to Darwin again we would gladly stay here again ..... but longer :)

Durack’s hidden gem

  • 4 of 5

‘Emerald on the lake’ was everything it advertised. Great location and facilities. Very easy communication with the owner. We would recommend this home to anyone needing an escape up North.

It would have been good to have had access to WiFi.

Great little place

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place for extra family at xmas and it was great. Very comfortable and excellent location. We will definitely stay again. The only negatives were old box aircons (they worked fine) and stove/oven a bit dated (worked fine).

Exactly what I was after

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for what I needed. Was like a home away from home. Perfect place to base myself for the 4 days whilst on a work trip. Clean, organised and the pool was a definite bonus. The owner was amazing in helping out prior to the stay. Will definitely be booking it again.
