Lovely spacious apartment in a beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

Roomy, comfortable apartment right opposite the beach and a few minutes walk to Nightcliff jetty and pool. Spent a week there at the end of a family holiday in the Territory and it was nice shot of luxury after camping around for a month. Loved having breakfast outside and watching Darwin wake up, and sunset walks on the foreshore.

Perfect for our needs

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Darwin and this was made easier thanks to the comfortable accommodation at Seashells. Although an older style apartment it had all the amenities we needed. As a group (mix of couples and singles) the bedroom arrangements were great.The air conditioners were well utilized as we were all from down south. Loved being able to walk to a decent café, swimming pool and bus stop to get straight into town. Only minor issue for us was only having 1 access key, but we managed.

Beautiful Setting Beautiful Unit

  • 5 of 5

The unit itself is older - but everything works and is very practical. The 3 bedrooms are a great size and the 4 is fine. We had a safe walk to the local shops and to the local pub... Thursday was very quiet in the neighbourhood but the place came alive on Weekend.. Food vans and families everywhere.. I didn't know Darwin very well so we were on the other side of the main town... but the city is very easy to get around.

Thank you again I had a great stay

Great location. Unit is tired.

  • 3 of 5

A 3 bedroom ground floor unit on the foreshore at Nightcliff. The owner met us at a late hour to hand over the keys and talk us through the unit.

3 good sized bedrooms. A smallish living area.

No breakfast provided for us and minimal supplies. That's always a problem when you land late.

The Airconditioning was so so. No bath plug despite texting the owner... I was looking forward to a bath.

The unit was a bit tired. Overall 3 stars.

Check booking may get bumped for better deal

  • 1 of 5

Received booking confirmation from Seashells@arafura apartments and Stayz and paid the $200 deposit. Phoned apartments early June to finalise payment to be told that we did not have a booking. When I mentioned that I had confirmation I was then told that a mistake had been made and we were booked in for1/8 and not 1/7. Following discussion with owner I was then told there was nothing they could do as apartment was booked even though we we first to book apartments. It was quite obvious that they had got a booking for a longer period than we had booked for. We had booked these apartments as it was situated close to where family were living as we were in Darwin for a family wedding and the apartment was big enough for the 6 of us. I then spent the next few weeks trying to find accommodation for us which in the end cost more as we had to also hire a car as we were not able to get accommodation close to relatives.
