Being a regular visitor to Darwin, I’m always on the look out for great places to stay outside of the city and Rakhi Retreat was a fantastic option. Clean, comfy accommodation with the big draw card being the location on a big bush block surrounded by beautiful trees, plants and wildlife. Haven’t felt that relaxed in ages and can’t wait to visit again during the wet season when the lagoon is full. Rod the owner was also great to deal with. Highly recommended place to chillax!
Rakhi Retreat was a fantastic place to stay and do some NT birding. The house is beautifully finished, very comfortable and the kitchen a pleasure to cook in. The property is all natural bushland with a few different habitat types running into one another. In the morning I saw 24 different species of birds in the woodland, rainforest, paperbark forest and remnant water hole. It was just a short drive in the morning to Fogg Dam Wetlands and rainforests. The best NT accommodation for birders by far.
Gorgeous little house on some beautiful land. We booked here because it was fairly central to everything we wanted to visit. It was isolated enough for privacy, but definitely close enough to the shops for a quick run down the road when we needed something. The people who look after the rental are super friendly and gave great advice when we asked for recommendations. Would definitely recommend.
