What a great location excellent communication from the onset. Great apartment, great views and a large balcony. The apartment is large and comfortable with everything you would need even a large amount of DVD’s and kids games, fishing gear etc. Easy walk to great restaurants, the children’s pool, easy access to town centre. The things that let this great apartment down was the cleaning, left a little to be desired, stove was dirty, the side of the fridge was black one other problem was the air-conditioning in the main bedroom (en-suite) struggled and noisy. Do not get me wrong the apartment is great but looking a little tired and out dated lounge seating could be better for older people not very comfortable. Would I stay here again yes.

“Location is absolutely perfect”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Wonderfully located overlooking the Darwin Waterfront. Everything needed is very close by.

We were part of 3 couples staying. 3 double bedrooms were right for us. Some features were not right for 3 couples but the location was the big thing that was perfect. The outdoor balcony was excellent and well used.

These comments relate to 3 couples staying. Lounge furniture was not enough, big couches but back rests not great. Could have done with another 2/3 seater couch as well as a small table or 2.

The showers were a small problem in that the open shower floor had not been installed at acceptable levels and caused the water to flow over the entire bathroom/ensuite floor. After a while we overcame this by running the showers at half pace.
Internet Wi-Fi was not good enough and did not go for for first 2 days of our 5 day stay. When it did eventually go it was unreliable and at the very slow speeds of between 0.64 Mbps and 1.36 Mbps. We rang the Manager but the response took 2 days.

Once we arrived, there was no contact with the Manager. After paying over A$2,150 for 5 nights I thought we may have had a courtsey call early on.

Apart from the things mentioned above, the apartment was very well equiped. It had everything such as games, CDs, fishing gear, good air conditioning, kitchen equipment, and many other things.

Highly recommended and would book the apartment again.

This apartment was amazing. The location is unbeatable. The apartment itself was spacious and had everything you could need. With two families, we managed to squeeze in 4 adults, 5 kids aged between 7 and 15 and a baby - and yes, the manager/owner knew! We did bring our own sheets and therma-rests as the apartment officially sleeps 6, but we used the couches for two and only need our own bedding for one of the kids. If we ever get to Darwin again, and I hope too, this would definitely be the place I would stay

Liked best: The location, the space......everything
Liked least: Water leaked out of both showers and onto the surrounding floors....and we could not get wi-fi to work, but that was probably user error!

“Loved it”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Stayed in July and it was amazing. The owners have everything in the unit you need to make for a great holiday. Great views, comfy beds, BBQ, games, DVDs, even done food in the cupboard so you don't have to go and buy every little bits n pieces (sauce, salt etc. ). Will definately book there again on my next visit to darwin.

“Close to everything”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had not been to Darwin for a long time but the memories never go. These apartments are in the wharf precinct and has everything you want. Three large bedrooms; large balconies and the one we had (level 4) had games for the kids. The Oil Tunnels is just at the front of the complex and there is now a lift to a walkway that goes straight into town. Our grandchildren spent a whole day in the wave pool. You just have to go.
