WELCOME! This is a BUSINESS READY and FAMILY FRIENDLY homestay.
The INDOOR spaces are fully air conditioned and tiled throughout. Outside there are wall fans available on the tiled outdoor dining area - pool side.
Enjoy a coffee and a read here, or laze under an umbrella around the pool, or even grab a chair and enjoy the lush tropical gardens under a shady tree. The bird song early in the morning is lovely! A possum might be heard rustling in the tops of the trees in the far corners at night! During the rains in the Wet be prepared to experience the symphony of green tree frogs. This is tropical Darwin .........
The LIVING area has large louvered window galleys - a great feature of the tropical home when you want to open up the home and catch the breeze. It also has a large wall mounted TV and a DVD player. We have many DVDs available if you just want to "veg out". There is also a secure WiFi system connected to the National Broadband Network (NBN).
The KITCHEN end of the living space includes instant and ground coffee, a selection of teas and some herbs & spices. It also has some other basics like bread, breakfast condiments, milk and cereal on your arrival. It is equipped with glasses, crockery, cutlery, cooking pots, pans and utensils. It has an espresso coffee maker as well as 2 coffee plungers, a microwave, electric jug, ceramic stove top, fan forced oven, a rice cooker and toaster all to assist you to self cater to your needs.
The SLEEPING space and bathroom are accessed through a separate entry we call "the breezeway". From this internal room you access the modern large shower room with vanity (including hair dryer), toilet and bedrooms. If privacy is required, the two bedrooms are individually lockable. They join this space and each contain queen size beds, a compact workspace desk, small wall mounted TVs, modern inverter air conditioners and inside the built in wardrobes and shelving, small safes for your passports.
The COMMON spaces we happily share:
The large salt-chlorinated swimming pool, a small gas BBQ, the internal laundry with two washing machines - detergent supplied; outdoor clotheslines or clothes airers. Sorry, no internal clothes dryer. The shared laundry specifically stores an iron and ironing board for your personal use.
To assist for your private tourist sightseeing days, we have for your use: portable chairs, a basic PICNIC basket, plastic ware and water container. Just provide your food and drinks of choice. If you need an umbrella, we have those as well!
Please note: Besides being BUSINESS READY, we are a FAMILY FRIENDLY homestay. If you have specific needs for your family, please contact me. I may be able to provide a different bedding format, or an extra single mattress. I also have available on request: a portacot, high chair and basic wooden playpen. Airbnb essentials are provided, including all linen - including separate pool towels.
Any queries? Please make contact, for my business is to make your stay a great one!

Your Homestay space is at ground level. We live in a completely separate area upstairs. We work, so we come and we go........
As I said before, you can be as independent in your Home stay space as you want. If you wish to interact, ask for local knowledge or stories, we are here for that as well. Let us know...
We have two pets on the site, but not within the homestay space. We have a timid cat who lives upstairs with us and moves around the property as she pleases, but occasionally comes to say hi! We have recently rescued a placid and friendly female dog from the RSPCA, in to our family pack. She should not interfere with your homestay visit.
Not too many rules, just the usual for your safety and well being.
Absolutely enjoy the space but please be respectful of the environment and also noise levels must be considerate, especially at night; as this is a home in a leafy suburban setting, and we like to keep our neighbours as friends...
The Homestay space you are booking is for four persons. It will be very clean on your arrival, and I ask that you leave it neat and free of rubbish on your departure, for if a greater cleaning service is required, then an extra fee will be charged.
This is a family oriented and child friendly home, however children and infants must be under active supervision by a parent or guardian, at all times. All responsibility and duty of care for them must be provided by you, including their personal equipment and needs.
No EXTRA ADULT overnight visitors.
Drinking in social moderation is acceptable.
NO parties or events, no illegal activity or inappropriate anti-social behaviour.
Please let us know immediately if something is malfunctioning so it can be rectified. However, all damages or missing items will need to be paid for by you before departure.
To maintain a fresh and healthy environment, this is a strict non-smoking premise. The openness of elevated houses causes cigarette smoke to drift. If you feel a need to smoke, there is one spot in the far corner of the yard that has been made available for use.
Cats are curious things, but we ask you to not let our small and timid cat inside the Home stay space, to avoid her getting confused: for not everyone likes cats. Our young friendly dog is also not allowed in the homestay space.
For fire prevention and safety - do not leave any electrical appliances switched on when they are not in use, or when you are leaving for the day. This includes air conditioners, fans, hair straighteners and portable device chargers.
Pool closes at 10pm. To avoid injury, no bombing or running in the pool area. Children are not allowed in the swimming pool area without an adult actively supervising in the space for safety and as the lifeguard in an emergency. No drinking glasses or bottles are to be taken in to the pool area - only plastic allowed.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 5 jours avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement intégral. En cas d'annulation au cours des 5 jours précédant le voyage, la première nuit est non remboursable, mais vous recevrez un remboursement à hauteur de 50 % du coût des nuits restantes.
As a couple, Garry and I are always keen to travel and experience the world locally and internationally. This global village Earth, has so much to offer those willing to stop, breathe and appreciate her in all her natural and man made glory! We both work in an educational environment. I'm in administration and Garry teaches at our local university. We have 3 children and 4 grandchildren. We both hold NT Safely Working with Children Cards and have NT Police clearances.
Our home has physically grown over the years, and now our renovated ground level empty nest, is available for visitors just like yourself. It is completely self contained.
On a personal note, we enjoy reading, have eclectic tastes in music, and enjoy most things. Life's too short to take it for granted. We have never been "party animals" but prefer smaller numbers to truly engage and laugh. We like taking walks, enjoying a delicious cheap meal or movie, or simply sipping a glass of wine whilst watching the Wet Season storms, or Dry Season sunsets. But mostly, we love meeting new people and hearing their stories.....
Whether a first timer or a returning visitor, you can be totally independent from us, doing your thing; or you can slow your pace and share your story with us! Your choice!
Come to the Top End of the Northern Territory and stay for awhile. Our Homestay experience could be just what you are looking for.................
