We would like to share our big old Darwin beachfront apartment. You would have the room in the ‘west wing’ while our bedroom is at the other end of the house.

We love meeting people. Depending on how long you stay, we'd love to share a meal. Josh will loan you his pool pass to cool off in the Nightcliff pool.

Our place is a unique & special angle on this city, right beside beautiful Rapid Creek, close to the airport, the uni and to the delicious food at the Sat/Sun markets.

The space

One of the few houses that survived cyclone Tracey. Our home is large but not conventionally modern. It looks a bit rough from the outside and the bathroom is ordinary but it works. The highlight for us and everyone who visits, is the location vibe and the massive long balcony facing across to the water.

You very much have your own space at the other end of the house. We have good internet included and a hefty washing machine. Plenty of off street parking (great for travellers).

My husband Josh won an international hospitality award from Airbnb for his place down south. We both love Darwin and would love to give you a sense of how to navigate the north.

This is one of the best locations if you are looking to explore the real end of Darwin. Perfect if you are coming for the university too.

Guest access

Own bedroom. Shared bathroom. Lots of space to share.

Interaction with guests

We are often away on weekends. And always during the weekdays. Evenings we can be busy/winding down, but it doesn't mean we don't like company.

Other things to note

The road in front of our property is not quiet, but because it’s Darwin, it quietens down on nights and weekdays.

The property is old and looks very tired from the outside. Don’t judge the block by its cover. It’s a really cool and comfy pad.

There are two flats downstairs who need to be respected. They are awesome people and could give you good fishing tips.

Staying with Emma and Josh felt like coming home to old friends. They were excellent hosts, both warm and knowledgeable, yet also gave us space to have our own experience. The house is an excellent example of honest tropical architecture, perfectly suited to the climate and impeccably styled. Emma and Josh understand that a guest's experience is all about the details, the little pieces that create a home. It was hard to leave.

Emma and Josh's place was right on the beach as described and was a very relaxed, easy place to stay. Communication was great and I have no problem recommending Emma's place to anyone visiting Darwin.

thank you so much Emma and Josh. We really enjoyed our stay at ur place. We arrived at their house at 7am from Bali and they messaged us in advance how to get there, where the key is and all those important information ☺️ we were also invited in Josh's early birthday party (theme party: "Apron")- and it was tons of fun. The next days we haven't seen them much as we die day trips to Kakadu and Litchfield Nationalpark. Only on our last day (after 3 nights) we had the time for a short smalltalk and time with Emma and josh. We enjoyed the stay as we felt really welcomed, were able to wash our clothing and the A/C was great with the heat! The balcony has an awesome view to the beach and there is a nearby pool, too. Unfortunately it's not possible to swim in the sea because of crocodiles and jelly fish. But thank you so much for everything Emma and josh. ☺️ The 2 German Girls, sandra and sandra

We spent 6 days there, it's a nice place to stay in Darwin. The view on the ocean in the veranda is really nice and the air con in the room make the nights better. Emma & Josh are lovely people, I recommend !

This was a great place to experience the Darwin lifestyle. The atmosphere and view from the verandah was just so goddam idealic. The room and amenities were great and the air con made it a great place to sleep theough the tropical heat. The hosts were unobtrusive and yet more than happy to chat about anything and share those crucial local tips and tricks. Solid reccomendation.

Emma and Josh are very friendly hosts. Their place is as advertised, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable, with its own charm and a large balcony overlooking the foreshore and ocean. Close to Rapid Creek and Nightcliff markets, multiple food trucks and a pool nearby also. We really enjoyed our stay.

Really enjoyed our stay with Emma and Josh. Their hospitality and location was great, we felt at home in their space and would recommend a stay at the 'cane clubhouse' to anyone wanting to experience Darwin authentically.

Recently I have been dodging crocodiles, middle-school students and midges in Northern Australia. I've been involved here with different art projects and education research opportunities. My husband and I have met some great people through the Airbnb community. Meeting people and experiencing new places helps me to listen and learn.
