Stirling House is one of Darwin’s most unique historical tropical homes, tucked away on a large, quiet hideaway nook of Larrakeyah, adjacent to the CBD. Enjoy breezy spacious old-world Darwin with high ceilings, hardwood floors and antique furniture.

Le logement

You are invited to stay in Stirling House, one of Darwin’s most classic and unique historical tropical homes.

Located in a quiet and secret hideaway nook of Larrakeyah (the closest residential suburb to the CBD), our place is an old-world elevated Top End family home, full of charm.

Harking back to the yesteryear Burnett era of simple breezy tropical design, the residence features high ceilings, wooden floors and walls of louvres all round. It is tucked away on a large secluded and shady block (2000 sq. metres).

Upstairs, the large master bedroom has a king four poster bed, with an optional extra single bed available. The second bedroom (2 single beds - bunks) and third bedroom ( a queen bed) are joined by a lockable sliding door, which can be opened to accommodate families. With an optional fully self-contained apartment downstairs (1 king + 1 single w/ its own bathroom, indoor/outdoor kitchen and atrium living room), this house is great for groups and families looking to experience a different kind of Darwin. (For more information, the downstairs self-contained apartment is listed separately on Airbnb as Stirling Atrium Apartment.)

Our living room features antique and retro furniture, unlimited NBN WiFi, a large screen TV, a stereo, and even a few board games to keep everyone entertained.

Our newly refurbished retro kitchen maintains the spacious simplicity of the colonial era - with all the essentials you need to feel at home. Organise a family dinner and bake to your hearts content. Or relax on the back or side verandah and dine whilst you watch the sunset over the tropical garden.

We have tried hard to stay true to the classic post-colonial design features of our home, which by nature suits low energy consumption. The home utilises open-topped walls and a steep-pitched roof to enable cross-ventilation - no matter which way the breeze is blowing - but there is also air-conditioning available in two of the bedrooms upstairs ( the king and the queen rooms) and the large bedroom downstairs.

Accès des voyageurs

The property has a large front driveway with off-street parking for 6 cars. We have more than enough room to accommodate trailers or caravans. We welcome families and are happy for you to bring your pets (although we do ask that they stay outside and will need to be on a lead as the property is not fully fenced).

Échanges avec les voyageurs

We are long time Darwin residents with lots of local knowledge. We are happy to help with advice about whats around to see and do. We are only 15 minutes away so can easily sort out queries as required.

This property is nonsmoking. Pets are welcome but they need to remain outside. Please note that we do not have a front fence on the property, so pets will need to remain on a leash in the garden.

The house is an old classic. Nothing fancy or flash but perfect to spend a few days.

The house is very central and it is easy to get to all the best places. It was very clean and well maintained and did provide us with a taste of "old Darwin" which is what we were after. Check in and out were easy. Thank you.

This house, very large, is perfectly located, between the CBD and the botanic garden. Danielle did her best for us and we spent a great time !

The best thing about this house is the location - we had young kids with us but were still able to walk to the Mindil Markets and Aquascene fish feeding. Adults could also walk to the city centre if they were keen. A lot of places we went were only 5-10 minutes' drive (shopping, in particular). The other great thing about this house is the size. Upstairs, the lounge, kitchen, and master bedroom were all very roomy. the deck has a massive table that seats 10, as well as other seats. We spent a lot of time out there in the mornings and evenings. We also used the downstairs unit - four children slept in the very large bedroom. It was handy having a second fridge and TV at our disposal and it was great to be able to separate kids and adults, particularly at night. The kitchen was well-appointed and other guests had left spices, vegemite, peanut butter, and so on, which was great. While we didn't meet Danielle, she communicated constantly and made everything easy. The only negative aspect to our stay was noisy birds (which obviously can't be controlled) and a howling dog early in the morning, possibly next door. Despite this, we would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it.

We had a great stay at Danielle's place. Danielle and Will were great at communicating and answering any questions we had. It is an old fashioned house, however was clean and has a lot of character. Perfect for a big group when booking whole house (upstairs and downstairs). Lots of space in driveway for cars or camper trailor's if needed and great balcony with outside fans. In a quiet street central to town - location was perfect!! walking distance to cullen bay, mindil markets and mitchell st. Didn't need to use aircon at all with great airflow within house. We would love to stay again and want to say a huge thank-you to the hosts.

I have been living in Darwin for close to 15 years and I love it here. I am looking forward to sharing my house with people from Australia and around the world and hope that they will love Darwin as much as I do.
