A few problems at the start, ceiling fan not working, small fridge rather noisy when compressor came on during the night but worst of... More

A very comfortable, even elegant, place to stay in a quiet and handy location, with very pleasant and friendly hosts. We stayed upstairs for a few nights before moving down to the larger family unit (book early!). Both 'units' were well set up, functional, clean and nicely furnished. I for one am very happy with the idea of an outside... More

Went to Palmerston to visit my sister and was looking for a well-priced two bedroom apartment with facilities to prepare meals for the family. This property was everything we needed. They even supplied a highchair and port-a-cot for our 18 month old daughter at no extra cost. Jan and Brian were very welcoming, even giving our two children icecreams on... More

Very warm hospitality with down to earth hosts Jan and Brian. Swimming Pool was very relaxing. Most important thing for me was the high level of cleanliness. I had the Kadek Suite which was spacous and nicely furnished in a tropical Bali style. Location was close to facilities for dining out.

After a delay in Darwin picking up hire car, I was late arriving. Brian was very helpful and showed me how the room worked etc. Couple of things went wrong: A/C was intermittently working and shower head ?too heavy for the wall kept falling down but both were sorted out quickly by Brian on return from work. Room was clean... More

The hosts Brian & Jan are wonderful. They were so friendly and helpful. The location is quiet with a wonderful outdoor setting on the verandah. There is your own fridge, microwave, sink and utensils. The pool and BBQ were great.

Having only stayed in a B&B once before and not enjoyed it as I felt as if I was staying in someone elses house and eating at their dinner table as if one of the family. I like the privacy of being able to choose how much time I wish to spend interacting with the hosts. I really enjoyed this... More
