Great place to stay. Right opposite the bus stop with direct bus to city. Lots of information about the local area in the book and accommodation had everything you could need.

It was a nice balinese style cottage in the back of the yard of the owners house. It was nicely decorated and there were all the things we needed. We liked it. It is located like 10 km out of the city so you will need a car or you can take a bus at the corner of the street.

We really enjoyed our 2 nights in the Balinese Cottage and the warm and friendly welcome. The atmosphere of the cottage, it's surroundings and the general position of the house were all great. Highly recommended!

Kim's place is pleasant and relaxing. It is close to the beautiful coast, some great beachside eateries, a hotel and markets. We had a car, but if we didn't, there's a bus stop near by, making anywhere you want to go in Darwin, accessible. Kim has a comprehensive document on what's available and accessible in easy to read form once you enter. Both Kim and John are friendly, non-intrusive and ready to help, if you should need it.
