Arafura Blue

Right on the Nightcliff foreshore Arafura Blue is a beautiful, big house exuding that quintessential Darwin charm. Built after cyclone Tracy this property has a character that is unique to older style Darwin homes. The house retains many of its original features, is surrounded by a lush tropical garden and has a huge pool.  Beautifully furnished and fully equipped this house is all about relaxation. Whether you are large family, a group of friends or even colleagues on a business trip you will find your perfect stay at Arafura Blue.

Budding chefs can cook up a storm in the well equipped kitchen. There is a dishwasher (because holidays are too short for washing dishes!)  and a secod fridge should you require extra space for storing your food and drinks. 

The house can sleep up to 12 people. There are five bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The first bathroom has a bath and separate shower, a toilet and a vanity. The second bathroom has a shower over bath, a toilet and a vanity.  

There is a large LCD TV in the living room and free WiFi for staying connected. For those wishing to switch off from technology we have a selection of books available for your enjoyment. Or you could  just relax with a cool drink on a sun lounger by the pool, as the sun slowly sets over the Arafura sea!

All living areas and bedrooms have their own individual air-conditioners and ceiling fans. The huge pool is for your exclusive use and large indoor and outdoor dining settings allow you to eat alfresco or in air-conditioned comfort.

The property is fully self-contained and all yours for the duration of your visit. You will have exclusive access to the entire house, garden and pool area. We generally do not disturb you during your stay, allowing you complete privacy. However we are just a phone call away if you require anything.


Please note we do have a small, completely separate flat under the house which we use for ourselves when we are in town. Like our guests we enjoy our privacy and will not generally disturb you during your stay unless you request to see us.

Nightcliff is one of the premier beach side suburbs of Darwin. There is a beautiful walking/cycling track that runs for kilometers along the foreshore. The Nightcliff pool sits on the waters edge with a lovely cafe right next door. A little further around the foreshore is the Beachfront hotel, perfect for a relaxing drink or a meal while enjoying the famous Darwin sunset. The nearby Nightcliff village is well known for its Sunday markets and all services are available close by. It is about 10km or 15 minutes drive to Darwin city.

As Arafura Blue is located 10km from the city centre we would highly recommend that you have a car when staying here.
