My first time to Darwin (quite possibly my last, I really can't cope with the heat - November), the owners/operators are the most fabulous people, nothing is too much trouble. Spotlessly clean roomy room, AC and a fan,comfy QS bed, good blockout drapes, flat screen telly, bar fridge, spacious WR, balcony with outdoor setting which just serves to make you appreciate the AC. Ask for a pool towel and you get a terry towelling blanket, great pool/barbecue area with shade. It's a very short walk to the Parap Tavern - reasonably priced meals/bottleshop, the Raging Bull Steakhouse (10% off when you show your room key). The other corner has a nice little general store and the shopping centre past the Tavern on Parap Road on your right is also a market on the weekend. The bus stop is a short walk (to your left) up Stoke St also and only $2 to go to Darwin (10 mins) and a good walk if you can cope with the heat - I recommend a parasol. A taxi is about $10 to the CBD where there are lots of good pubs and restaurants. The Paravista is an oasis just out of the Darwin city area with the most easy going, helpful, hospitable people on earth. The rooms are serviced unless you put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door handle. And they Do Not Disturb. It was and truly worth the money; I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Darwin, its true value for money.
PS We happened to be out the balcony on a hot night during a close thunder storm and were treated to a spectacular lightning show for ages.
