About the property


Located in Darwin's rural area (20 minutes from Darwin City), North 12 Degrees is a stunning, tropical architecture house of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms for up to 6 people. A glistening private pool completes the picture.

Elevated amongst the tree tops, N12D features a breathtaking outdoor, screened master bedroom, outdoor ensuite bathroom & private lounge. All furniture is bespoke from Java (made by master Javanese craftsman especially for us).

The house has an outside entertainer's stainless steel kitchen (inc dishwasher), inside & outside dining, 2 living areas, 2 flat screen TVs, free superfast NBN Internet, DVD/CD player, Nespresso coffee machine, water filter/ cooler, BBQ & full laundry. A laptop safe is also provided.

All rooms have ceiling fans with the inside bedrooms, lounge & dining equipped with Daikin AC for the hotter months.

Inside, North 12 Degrees is furnished with a King Jasper lounge. Outside the house features bespoke recycled teak & ironwood Javanese furniture. Local indigenous artwork is on our walls.

All guests will find a welcome arrangement of beautiful tropical fresh flowers on the kitchen bench.


The house is surrounded by tropical gardens with a crystal clear pool, creating a private bush hideaway.

Our bush is home to Agile Wallabies, Curlews, Bandicoots, Possums & native northern Kookaburras.

Come & unwind on our beautiful deck while you watch Darwins famous sunsets.

At 6.10pm each evening a flock of white corellas fly over heading south. You can set your watch by it.


We are located on the edge of Darwin, in the heart of the rural area (Coolalinga). There is quick & easy access to the Stuart Hwy, which is the main arterial road linking all of Darwin's attractions. Coolalinga village is 1km away by car/ foot.

North12Degrees is:

- 25 minutes - Darwin International Airport

- 20 minutes - Darwin CBD

- 5-15 minutes - various local markets

- 10 minutes - Palmerston

- 5 minutes - Arnhem Highway turnoff (Kakadu NP)

- 1 minute - Coolalinga Shopping Village

For those wanting visiting the magnificent Top End National Parks of Litchield or Kakadu, the swimming spots of Berry Springs & other camping/ fishing areas, we are on the way, <45 minutes to the Adelaide River region.

Note - Nth 12 Degrees offers flexible check-in/ check-out times (given the 24/7 nature of Darwin airport) as long as other bookings allow.

Clean-living small canines (under 10kg) will be considered on application AT THE TIME OF BOOKING and completely at the owner's discretion. A refundable dog bond of $500 is required.

Please note: This is a premium rental house. While it is suitable for weddings and other small special occasions it is not suitable for loud parties. If you are looking to party and drink hard while in Darwin this is not the house for you.

While the house is family-friendly, children are welcomed only on the condition that they are well behaved and respectful of the property. Note - the pool is not fenced.

Finally, we value our home very much and are very happy to share it with others when we are not in Darwin. We like our guests to treat it as they would their own.

About Fiona

We work in medico-legal issues. We are a doctor and lawyer although neither of us practice as such.

Why Fiona chose Virginia

The reason our home is available for holiday lease is because we currently live in the Netherlands.

What makes this house unique

North 12 Degrees is a very special self-contained, private house. The idea is to kick-back, cook on the deck & relax to the sights & sounds of the Australian tropical bush.

Amazing place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found this place to stay. We spent all the time in the outside kitchen, lounge area and pool when were back from a fun filled day out sightseeing. Everything you could want was there. Make sure you look in fridge and cupboards before you head to the supermarket, so you don't double up on things already there. Brenda & Peter the caretakers are lovley, nothing was to much trouble for them, and they were there to great us on arrival, and to answer any questions we had, and to call or message them at any time if we so needed to do so.Brenda also sent a sms asking if it was ok to pop up if she had to do anything. I slept in the outdoor bedroom and loved it. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

Unique and amazing.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at North 12 degrees before and hope to come back again. It's a great place to relax and unwind. It is a home with plenty of personality. The outdoor living spaces are so well designed you really don't want to go out exploring, but if you do the homes proximity to many of the top ends attractions, is an advantage. It is about 15 mins to the wonderful Berry Springs, and also convenient to Litchfield and close to Arnhem highway too.

Bush Property

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The pool was great. Everything we needed was on hand. Our only fault was there was no wardrobe in the bungalow section so nowhere to put any clothes and nothing in the out door bathroom for our toiletries

Owner's Response: I thank this guest for her feedback. I am sorry she did not see the black cabinet immediately above the basin in the outside bedroom. Re the lack of a wardrobe in the outdoor master bedroom, the architect gave us a choice of a view over the tree tops or a wardrobe, we went with the former and have no regrets. I'm also sorry this guest broke one of our red persex bedside lamps. I apologise to new guests for the temporary one, while I await the arrival of the replacement to make it up from Melbourne.
