We stayed for 7 nights at the retreat. Jan and Brian went out of their way to make us feel at home. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The resort is hidden away from the main roads which makes it very peaceful and have beautiful tropical plants at the back. It's also about 2 mins drive... More

The description and reviews promised a lot for this suburban B&B but we were a bit disappointed. Accommodation in Darwin is expensive and this is no exception at $275 per night not including breakfast although Jan did give us some lovely mango from their farm. We were two family couples who stayed in the Kadek Suite and the suite is... More

Thankyou for taking the time to review our property and outling the high quality of our amentities and wonderful location. Our property reflects the use of outdoor spaces like "verandahs" poolside BBQ/Cooking and ultra large TV and seating areas that are reflection of how Darwinites live in a very tropical climate.

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.
