We spent a day at Heather's and we can only say that she's lovely. She came to pick us at the airport, she made us feel at home and she also brought at the airport when it was time to leave, giving us the chance to remain longer at her place as the flight was late in the night. The house is beautiful so we can just recommend to stay at hers!

Heather and her husband were fantastic hosts, from recommending tours in the weeks before our stay to collecting us from the airport and dropping us off and collecting us at other times during our short (2 day) stop over in Darwin. Heather even prepared us a packed breakfast to take with us when we had a super early start for a litchfield park tour one day. Highly recommended.

We loved having you and Amy here and wish you could've stayed longer. So glad you got to Litchfield and the market - all on one day too!! Safe travels and please come back some time. You were great ambassadors for UK and Amy for young leaders! cheers, Heather & Brendan

I was only in Darwin for a day, but Heather made me more than welcome. Her house is just lovely, with a beautiful garden that is an oasis of peace. The bedroom was large and very comfortable and I appreciated the excellent bathroom facilities. Heather herself is the soul of generosity, picking me up from the station, dropping me at the airport (ridiculously early), doing my washing and donating some beautiful hats (they got home in one piece and look fab). In between hunting down her recommended places of interest, I loved listening to her wonderful conversations about life at the "Top End" and looking at her beautiful works of art, including the lovely objects she makes herself. She also took me to a wonderful club where I danced the night away to the accompaniment of a tropical storm! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Heather. It was a short but very sweet visit and I hope to see you again. Let me know if you ever come to London as I would love to return some of your kindness.

Response from Heather:
Heather, you managed to fit so much into one day! Thank you for your kinds words, they are heart warming, not that we need more 'warming' in the tropics! The hats are definitely more 'at home' in London than Darwin and should feel 'good' on, no-one will believe you found them here!! With one of those hats on, even on a bleak day in London Town, you can experience fond memories of that 'one' day in Darwin which puts an automatic smile on your face so others are left wondering, why you're smilin'! :)

No wonder Heather is tag as a SuperHost here in Airbnb. I had a very short stay in heather's home, not to mention on such a short notice (checked in at 12mn), yet it was a very pleasant experience. You can feel the authenticity of her hospitality and that it's more like 'checking in ' a home rather than just having a mere place to stay. The room and its amenities were exceptionally clean and cozy. Overall, it was a topnotch! She welcomed me like an old pal. Lucky I didn't have a surfboard (heather. You know what i mean). Lol

She's such a nice host and a lovely person. She told me so many good stories, showed me around Darwin. I felt like home, it was so comfortable staying here and the room where I stayed was sooo amazing! I loved waking up to the chirping of many different birds. If you are here for a vacation this is the place that I would highly recommend. Anytime! Thank you Heather :)

Hi Rahul, thank you for your kind words. It was our pleasure to host you and we hope you get to love Darwin as we do. Like you, I love waking up with the bird song each morning and I love watching the little lizards in the garden, there are some cute little ones at this time of year, along with the green tree frogs that always let us know if it's going to rain overnight! Enjoy your studies, sunset walks at the beach and the tropical lifestyle, with or without shoes! cheers, Heather

Thanks for your comments Florian. It was our pleasure to meet you and we hope you have another wonderful day in the Top End. Make sure you visit the Raptor feeding at the Wildlife Park, it is amazing to watch the big birds being fed, you get to see them up close and if you are quick, you can take a great photo. cheers, Heather

It was such a wonderful short stay in Darwin. Heather was very considerate and friendly host. The place is 5 minutes drive to the airport and about 10 drive to Nightcliff. The guest room is neat, clear and well-decorated. Highly recommend for leisure holidays. Many thanks to Ying who spend her entire weekend showing me around the city. We've been so lucky to be able to enjoy many beautiful views during this rain season. Looking forward to my next visit.

hi Yang, it was our pleasure to meet you and have you stay with us. So glad you had an opportunity to have a short and intense two day one night Darwin experience! You should now have some great stories backed by beautiful photos. The Wet Season skies make the best photos and with the monsoon hanging around, there are no shadows in the outdoor photos - or so I've been told! I know I have some beautiful pics from our Lee Point Beach Walk yesterday, and the sea was noisy and choppy, again making for great video and photographs to add to a calendar...some time! Please have a safe journey home and we would love to see you again in the future. cheers, Heather
