Quayside Executive 6605

We stayed here for 5 nights and we were very happy with the apartment. It’s in a great spot right on the the waterfront overlooking Stokes Hill Wharf. It’s on the 6 th floor so the views are fabulous. With plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby plus Darwin CBD a quick walk away it is ideally placed. The apartment is beautifully furnished with very comfortable beds. Handy provisions for the traveller with bread, milk,OJ, cereals – great when arriving late – no need to rush to the shops! We loved our stay and would recommend staying there to family and friends when they visit Darwin.

Lookout Apartment at Sentinel

This is a great apartment for our family of 5. 3 BR and 3 Bathrooms and a large dining table and a well equipped kitchen gave us plenty of room for our 6 day stay.

The large wrap-around balcony with BBQ and outdoor dining was a wonderful way to eat meals overlooking Darwin Esplanade and Harbour, and we made plenty of use of the pool!

Very convenient, clean and well equipped for a relaxing stay. Thanks

Darwin Waterfront Apartments

We absolutely loved our recent stay at the Darwin Waterfront Apartments. The apartment was clean & welcoming on our arrival and the view & location were fantastic. Everything we needed was close enough to walk to which was perfect for us. We loved everything about it and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!!

Waterfront apartments

Ideally situated close to restaurant strip, convention centre and Stokes Hill wharf. Amazing harbour views through large windows from both bedroom and large main room/kitchen. Well stocked with cooking gear. Complimentary bottle of wine in fridge, and some brekkie supplies. Lovely to have breakfast on the verandah with fan overhead, overlooking the ocean.

Waterfront apartment

Darwin Waterfront apartment luxury and convenience!! What a way to spend the time between christmas and New years. A 2br family friendly apartment that had everything we could need including a 5 star view of the harbour. We saw boats of every size and use, ate delicious food and drank awesome coffee at the local restaurants and the kids loved the swimming, playground and family walks each day. So close to the city to pop in for some retail therapy (and another playground) and there was still time to enjoy a wine and a chapter or 2 back at the apartment. we will be back and we have spread the word. Thank you More than a room for a truly relaxing and comfortable stay!! Wish I could add photo’s the view was amazing!

Mandalay Luxury Stay

This was our second Darwin visit we have made with More Than A Room and Suzanne, our first in January 2018, staying at The Lookout luxury apartment which was fabulous. It was pre-booked for our most recent Darwin Xmas stay so selected Mandalay on The Esplanade, a very convenient location to the city, supermarkets and the harbour eateries. Mandalay is like stepping back into Colonial days with stone walls, rich timber flooring and matching furniture, right down to the timber inside shutters on the double doors in case of that Christmas cyclone. There’s was everything you could ever want provided in the kitchen, plus books and games in the living areas, flat screen tvs in every bedroom and the lounge. The welcoming hamper was very much appreciated, especially the ice cold bottle of white wine after we had unpacked. There were supplies for an initial meal so you did not have to head out to do the shopping upon arrival. Wonderful location opposite the parkland on The Esplanade plus the harbour beyond. We could sit on the upper floor balcony and watch the sunset or the arrival of several cruise ships heading into Darwin. Mandalay is one of four similar buildings surrounding a lovely swimming pool. There was another couple staying in what we assumed was a two bedroom similar stone building but hardly saw them. There were six of us staying in the three bedroom accommodation and we had heaps of room to move about. Good areas to ‘get away’ if you wished. We had the pool to ourselves 99% of the time….and being just inside the property, passing pedestrians looked with envy to see us in the water during what has been a bad build-up to the Wet season. We thoroughly recommend this stay and will be heading back. For interest sake, the Lookout luxury accommodations is a penthouse unit and also on our list is a top place to stay. Only need to make a lift ride to the beautiful pool. But the Mandalay is great…plus off street parking for two cars in the carport. Thank you Suzanne..great Xmas holiday. Barry and family

We have been coming to Darwin for many years and our accommodation experience has been ok. This year we tried more than a room for the first time and had a far better experience with the quality of accommodation. Highly recommended and Suzanne is a pleasure to deal with. We have already locked in our 2018 trip with her!!!

Angela, July 2018


Overall, very happy with our stay. Thank you

Kate, April 2018


Suzanne, you have do it again!
This is the 3rd time we have used you in recommending accommodation for us subject to our needs & you never let us down.
“Eagles Nest Waterfront Retreat” is awesome. The views, sunrises & sunsets, location, facilities & atmosphere.
See you again in January 2019.

Paul, April 2018


A really enjoyable stay. The apartment was spotlessly clean and there were some nice touches such as the complimentary wine, breakfast provisions and even Easter eggs!
Very relaxing just sitting out on the balcony taking in the view – and so handy to many facilities.
The reception staff were very obliging – assisting with a late check out when our flight was delayed and assisting with information for our next stay.

I stayed in Waterfront apartment in Darwin, which was beautiful and clean, great amenities, and lovely view of the port. Convenient to restaurants and a short walk to the CBD. thank you.

Maureen, April and May 2018


Stayed at Darwin waterfront apartments. Unit was spotless, modern and centrally located, would recommend and stay again. Booking was easy, quick and very good.

Alan, May 2018


We stayed for 9 days in Unit 10 Colonial Court on the Esplanade Darwin. The unit was like walking into our own home – it has everything you could possibly need for your stay and was very clean. It is also in a great location – walking distance to town for supermarkets and restaurants and across the road from the lovely Bicentennial park and ocean. Well done Suzanne and team. Highly recommend.

Allen, May 2018


Lovely apartment with all inclusions. Was very grateful for the added Milk, juice, cereals and Easter eggs (we arrived after 1am).
Front element on stove dosnt work and bathroom design is poor. ( drainage is inadequate so water ends up on the whole bathroom floor). See through pane of glass in other bathroom is also not very inviting especially when you have teens staying in the room??
Parking is very hard to identify in middle of night.
Poster is small and we were looking for waterfront apartment not more than just a room, so that was tricky.

My husband and I just spent a week at the Bali House and it was divine. It was very clean and spacious and we loved the quirky layout that so suits a tropical environment. The bed was very comfortable and the shower really good. The kitchen was well equipped and all the chairs were comfortable. The airconditioning worked well in such a humid environment. The pool was fabulous and the shade cloth over the pool made swimming without having to put on sunscreen great. I would highly recommend the Bali House to anyone wanting to stay in Darwin – it’s located at Cullen Bay which is very close to the city while at the same time nowhere near it. It has a very restful outlook over the marina and the sunsets you can watch are beautiful. More Than a Room were terrific to deal with even with a double booking episode – they fixed the problem quickly and painlessly. We would love to stay there again.

This clean and comfortable apartment was very modern,well equipped and very secure.. It offered fantastic harbour views from the balcony on the seventh level.
The Waterfront and surrounds offered a myriad of opportunities for the tourist.
We thoroughly recommend this as a holiday destination .
We would definitely stay there again.

Dianne, February 2018


Suzanne was extremely accommodating to my need for my last minute booking at the Heritage Apartment. The apartment was stunning, and very well located in the Darwin CBD. Would recommend to anyone.

Melanie, January 2018


We have used More than a Room to find our accomodation in Darwin on many occasions and in all seasons. We visit regularly to spend time near our family. Suzanne Porter is unfailingly helpful and has been able to find us the perfect home away from home.

Andrej and Kerrie, January 2018


I would recommend this accomodation to anyone the apartment was very modern and had everything you required for a great holiday in Darwin. It was central to the wave pool and the “beach” where the kids spent a lot of time. The wharf was popular as there was a great selection of meals for everyone. I would love to come back again and would choose this place again.

Great apartment, location and views. Great service. Thank you we will be back.

Brendan, April 2018


The Water’s Edge apartment in Darwin is one of the best we have ever stayed in. We didn’t want for anything during our stay.
From the gloriously comfortable beds (and pillows) we sank into after an overnight flight, to the welcome breakfast pack and coffee machine, the keynote was comfort.
The apartment has spectacular views of the harbour, is within an easy stroll of fabulous restaurants and the town centre, and has basement parking. It is equipped to the last detail with quality furnishings and appliances and we just loved it.

Jennifer, April 2018


We stayed the weekend of my wedding and I picked the best place to get ready and the best for photo shoot before the weddin!! I really wished I had of taken photos on the yacht but I didn’t as we ran out of time overall a fantastic place will highly recommend the Bali house and I’d stay again and again.

Jacinta, May 2018


We loved our 8 night stay in our Darwin Waterfront Apartment. The amazing water views were stunning. The apartment had everything you could possible need for a relaxed holiday. The location was perfect, close to restaurants and the wharf and an easy walk to town.The BBQ was a nice extra as well. We will be back!

Great location. Wonderful view of Cullen Bay and lovely cool breeze from the spacious balcony. Very clean and well appointed rooms. We were appreciative of the breakfast supplies we found on our arrival. Within easy walking distance of many attractions and restaurants
Thank you for making our Darwin stay so enjoyable.

Heather, June 2017


Our stay at the Waterfront Apartments in Darwin was most enjoyable. The property is new and ideally situated close to the water and the CBD. Restaurants and coffee shops are within the complex and car parking is under the building.
The rooms are large and clean with excellent facilities. Highly recommended.

Paul Case, July 2017


Thank you, Suzanne, for presenting such an amazing apartment at Sky View. The views and presentation of the apartment was delightful, the welcome goodies of bread, juice, breakfast cereals, tea & coffee not to mention the bottle of wine – all greatly appreciated. Easter Bunny left us eggs in the fridge! Easy to deal with and advice and reference for enjoying our holiday was much appreciated. We will be back. We can highly recommend this accommodation to anyone who enjoys luxury and lifestyle – Fantastic time had by us both !!

Sam & Mark, April 2017


Fabulous location and great apartment – THANKYOU for the complimentary food and drinks on arrival as there was no need to rush out and buy anything.

Jane, July 2017


My wife and I stayed at “Chique Chaque” for the fourth successive year recently and thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay there.

Malcolm Levy, July 2017


Stayed in the Harbor view apartment with my husband for 5 days. The apartment was very clean, large, view amazing and close walking distance to everything. We hired a car and did not use it for the first 3 days. Highly recommend these apartments to whoever wants to go to Darwin. Do not have to leave the waterfront as all you need is there. Couples and family alike. Suzanne was very helpful before and during stay. The breakfast pack and wine was a lovely welcoming. Will definitely stay here again.

Amanda, July 2017


We had 4 nights in Darwin staying in Costas. We had been staying in our campertrailer for 4 weeks and to have the space and luxury of our 3 bedroom apartment was just what was needed for my family. There were so many little things that were thought of that made our stay that little bit special. I would gladly stay with More Than a Room, I highly recommend them.
