My centrally-located two-bedroom apartment is just 200m from cheap public transport and perfect for 1-2 people. Friendly pet snakes make for a unique and educational experience. Relax with high-speed wifi, airconditioning throughout & a 12.5m pool!
I live alone and have a busy lifestyle, meaning you will have complete privacy from 6:30am-5:30pm during the week. I have two harmless pythons who each live in a secure enclosure in my loungeroom. I am also petsitting a friendly adult cat until 22nd March. I am a non-smoker and my home is drug free and LGBT friendly.
You will be sleeping on a queen bed in your own room. Fresh towels and linen are provided for each guest.
Shared loungeroom, bathroom and kitchen spaces.
24/7 access to a 12.5m shared swimming pool is included.
Access to high-speed wifi is included.
Smoking is not permitted indoors.
Washing machine, fridge and kitchen use is included.
An iron and ironing board are available free of charge.

I love chatting with all of my guests and often invite guests to join me on social outings. I genuinely enjoy listening to everyone's experiences and perspectives on life. I spend a lot of time at home when I'm not working, so am happy to offer advice or answer questions about your stay in Darwin.
My home is:
- 15 minutes' drive from the city centre (20 minutes by bus)
- 10 minutes' drive from the Northern Territory's largest shopping centre, Casuarina Square (15 minutes by bus)
- one street away from local gourmet pizza and greek desserts
- 5 minutes' walk from fresh food markets every Sunday morning, offering Asian cuisine and fresh fruit/vegetables
- 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the beach. Darwin is famous for its sunsets!
If you are arriving via plane, my home is a 5 minute drive or AU$15 taxi fare from the airport. Bus services to and from the airport are infrequent and difficult to find, so this option is not recommended.
Buses are the only public transport in Darwin; a 3 hour ticket is AU$3, or $1 for Australian students and concession holders. Weekly tickets can also be purchased from any bus interchange for $20, allowing unlimited travel for a week. The route 10 bus stops 200m from my home and runs every 20-30 minutes between Casuarina Square (the Northern Territory's largest shopping centre) and the city.
Guests will need to check in when I am home, between 6pm-6:30am weekdays, or negotiate a time for weekend arrivals.
I accept late night/early morning check-ins - as long as you can call or text me when you arrive. Guests planning trips to Kakadu/Litchfield should book tours departing at 7am or later, as the public bus to the city doesn't run before 6:30am.

I had a lovely and relaxed time at Brooke´s. Brooke is really chilled out, friendly, talkative, easy-going and an interesting person which made our stay stress-free. I enjoyed the bike rides along Nightcliff (so pretty there !) and the afternoon swim. Thanks :) Recommended staying here definitely!
Overall, it was an excellent experience.
Brooke is a very nice host and very friendly. She also introduced her snakes to us and it was really interesting.
The appartment was very convenient as it is very close to the airport. The room and the bathroom are clean and the bed was large and very confortable.
We surely recommend this place.
My stay in brooke's place was great. Brooke is really cool, she is ready to manage your check in even if you did that one at 2 am, that's amazing and perfect to me. The room is clean with a big bed. All the appartment is great but the bathroom is the best cause I've the impression to be in Mario's land (very cool).
Near of the airport it's a perfect place to stay if you get off early.
Thank you for everything.
It was a great AirBnB experience! Brooke is an exceptionally hospitable host and a great personality too. She took me to the markets, drinks and let me in after a late night flight. Her place is nice and snakes are friendly. Highly recommended.
We had so much fun at Brooke's place. We touched snakes, shared stories, a lovely shower and had a great nights sleep. Brooke is an easy going, welcoming and wonderful host.
Excellent!!! Brooke is a relaxed, nice to talk to, interesting Person with a lot of helpful local knowledge! The room was big with a comfy bed and Brooke provided a lot of info useful and/or interesting stuff about Darwin and NT.
Thanks a lot for making it possible to arrive in the middle of the night. We definitely recommend this lovely host.
Brooke is nice and hostal. We really liked to chat with her and play with her beautiful snake. The house is closed to the airport and comfy. If you go through Darwin go to Brooke's apartament.
My second stay with Brooke and she was as friendly and helpful as the first time. It was great to catch up with her and to see how her pet snakes were getting on. If you want to know anything about snakes, just ask Brooke! In between snake wrangling, Brooke keeps a clean and tidy apartment and I always get a lovely sleep whenever I stay. Thanks Brooke.
Brooke is very king, we were very well in her house. The two pitons are not a problem, instead we don't like very much snakes, this are in their box and don't disturb you.
The house is confortable and the room too.
We recommend the house every person who is in Darwin, because is close but not too much.
Brooke was incredibly friendly and welcoming from the minute we arrived at her place. The room was spacious and we had fresh linen and towels to use. We loved meeting her two snakes and hearing everything she had to say about them. She also gave us lots of useful tips on attractions and eating out in Darwin which we found helpful! It was very cool to hear about her stories of travelling in Europe visiting other Airbnb guests, a testement to her success!
