My townhouse is in a small quiet complex - a park on 2 sides & 1 minute to the sea. Buy food at Fannie Bay shops or dine out at one of the local eateries. Go for a early morning walk &/or walk later in the day and watch the sun go down.

The space

The small and quaint bedroom, (with a quiet air-conditioner) is for one person and more suitable for women.
Please note: occasionally there are mosquitoes - the net is for those who like their windows open during these times.
The townhouse is located close to the Fannie Bay shops with a great local IGA store, several eateries, a coffee shop and more. There is Lake Alexander (safe for swimming), the sea, East Point Reserve (excellent for walking & biking - i have a bike that can be borrowed), and bus stops.
It's an easy walk to the Sailing Club, a short drive to the museum, Mindil Beach Sunset Markets (every Thursday & Sunday during the dry season), Saturday Parap mkt and CBD.

I don't supply breakfast, however if you are a night-time traveller i am happy to purchase a few breakfast items for you and you can repay me the following day.

Another enjoyable option for breakfast is a popup cafe which operates in the car park by the sea and Lake Alexander, accessed by turning right along the sea. It's a 5 minutes walk. Red bean bags under the trees, looking out to sea. Nice! Opens from 7-2pm Thursday - Sunday. It can get pretty busy during the weekend.
And there's the 'Cool Spot', at the Fannie Bay shops, 5 minutes the other way. Enjoyable also (although my preference is the popup) - especially if there is a good barista on and some seats give you a sea view.

Note: Late arrivals are fine.

The taxi from the airport ( approx. 9 kms) is roughly $18 - $29, depending upon time of day/night.

Street parking is available.

Guest access

The kitchen is available for use, as is the fridge. The bathroom is shared with myself.

Interaction with guests

I work from home and am in & out much of the time. I enjoy my own space and respect that for others. However, I also enjoy a chat & being of help if i can.

Other things to note

I have a bike to loan out, free of charge, however there is a refundable deposit.

This is a quiet complex and I myself enjoy quietness - thus this space would work well for someone who enjoys that also.
Sorry, it's not suitable for children as the space is only suitable for one person.
No shoes upstairs (leave them at the bottom of the stairs). Thanks
No smoking in the house or in the little courtyard. Thankyou.

Quiet place beside the coast. Good for a quiet retreat or a break from Darwin city centre life.

The location was absolutely fabulous with only a short walk to the esplanade, lake, 'Salty Plum' a pop up breakfast beanbag cafe with aromatic coffee & freshly prepared food. The room was light & airy with a comfortable bed to lay my weary body down. Linda is a lovely lady who gave me space & support at a difficult time. I am grateful that Linda could accommodate me at such short notice & also provide such a peaceful haven.

I enjoy working with NT & Australian fabrics making wallet and purses that hold a story.
Love the Tango and I am also learning Spanish.
Living in Fannie Bay with a sea view is great, especially when there is a sea breeze. I enjoy early and late walks along the beach and swimming in Lake Alexander.
Darwin life during the dry season is a delight.
