The space
The main bedroom contains a very comfortable king-size bed and and has its own spacious ensuite.
The second bedroom contains a queen size bed.
Both bedrooms have soft cotton sheets on their beds and the towels are soft and fluffy.
There is a mattress on the floor for a fifth person.
This mattress is best suited for a 2nd child who doesn’t want to share the queen bed with their sibling, but still wants to be in the same bedroom. Alternatively, it could be used in the lounge if you really want 5 adults, but it would need to be packed up everyday - as there’s not a lot of extra room in the lounge.
The second bathroom shares a space with the laundry - the washing machine and dryer are behind closable concertina doors.
There’s a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, air conditioning in all rooms, coffee plunger, barbecue and an insinkerator.
Showers only - no bath.
We have a portacot, high chair and children’s books, games and toys.

We have internet connection/WiFi.

When your booking is confirmed, please refer to House Manual in Guest Resources for some Apartment Housekeeping.

Where you’ll be

Darwin City, Northern Territory, Australia

Our apartment is in Darwin CBD on the Esplanade.
'Neil and Jane’s apartment was by far the best Airbnb place we have stayed at across the world. We could not fault a thing, from the comfortable space, immaculate cleanliness, thoughtful touches and fantastic amenities, this apartment had it all!’ Review by Michael - Feb 2020.
The Esplanade has a walking/cycling path that runs from Doctors Gully in the north to the Cenotaph in the south and onto the wharf precinct.
The Cenotaph is in Bicentennial Park, and contains a Bombing of Darwin Civilian Wall.
There is a large children’s playground close to our apartment.
Many tourist attractions are close to the apartment.
Doctors Gully, down the incline at the north end of the Esplanade, is where the fish feeding occurs – always on the high tide.
The southern end of the Esplanade has steps that lead down to the beautiful open air Deckchair Cinema – which is closed in the Wet Season.
If you continue along this path you will come to the waterfront and wharf areas where there are a lot of restaurants, cafes - and the wave pool and lagoon.
Other close by attractions are : Crocosaurus Cove, the Chinese Temple, Christchurch Cathedral (which was damaged by the Bombing of Darwin and Cyclone Tracey and has a small remaining part of the original church at the front), The Tree of Knowledge ( an ancient Banyan Tree in front of the Civic Centre), Lyons Cottage, Brown’s Mart which was built in 1833 and now hosts performances, Darwin Entertainment Centre, Lameroo Beach (a short steep jungle type walk down the cliffs of the Esplanade, onto the beach which used to house the open air swimming baths of Old Darwin) and plenty of other attractions, shopping and eating places.
The lovely areas of NightCliff and Rapid Creek are 20 minutes away and these have lovely cycling/walking track along the cliffs and beaches of this area.
The iconic Nightcliff pool is where you can enjoy your swim while taking in views over the sea.
This area has plenty of picnic spots dotted along the foreshore.
Casuarina Square is 30 minutes from the CBD and is a large shopping complex and also houses the cinema.
The city of Palmerston is about 30minutes drive south from the city.

We live in beautiful warm Darwin and have lived here in the Top End for over 40 years. Neil grew up in the wonderful small town of Streaky Bay and Jane moved there when she was 13 - after spending her childhood in scenic Port Lincoln. Though we are new to hosting with airbnb, we have welcomed many travellers into our home over the years and have loved showing them the sights of the Top End. We love travelling and have travelled extensively - often using airbnb. This gives us an insight into what travellers need & like and we strive to provide our guests with the same facilities that we enjoy.
