Although we didn't meet Debbie. She was in contact via SMS and gave us lots of (website hidden) was a comfortable apartment and in a nice quiet location. Taxi service was excellent and the buses were no problem.
Thanks Lynda.. pleasure hosting you and thank you for your other comments about how much you enjoyed the great air conditioning and wifi.. Good aircon is vital in this part of Australia and it is of the utmost importance to us so as to ensure the comfort of our guests.
Excellent, clean and tidy, great location, pool area fantastic, Debbie great with communication, very dark at night no lights to see pathway but torch used. Would definitely stay again.
Thanks Anne Marie, glad to hear you and your family enjoyed your stay at Tropicana Palms. The lighting of the common area is something I have been addressing with the body corporate. Thanks the reminder, I will follow up with them again. Great having your family and we hope to see you again
We are so thankful for Debbie's generosity for allowing us such an early check-in on the 1st day of arrival! If not we wouldn't know where to hang around at such wee hours in the morning. It is certainly a place we will recommend to family and friends if they want to visit Darwin (but it will be better to travel after 1st April). Wi-fi and all facilities were great except for the kettle, a little dirty inside or it's probably time to get a new one... otherwise everything else is impeccable. Thank you very much.
A welcoming, overseas host who encourages contact and left clear instructions for access made this most excellently positioned apartment very easy to enjoy. Hot, sticky weather was kept at bay with good aircon and we lounged in the large shared pool very happily.
We highly recommend a stay to anyone.

Clean apartment with a good location - love being close to Parap markets and the Cool Spot in Fannie Bay. Basic with just enough space for our family of four for a few days.

About the Host, Debbie
I live in Bali with my daughter who is going to international school here. We have been coming backwards and forwards to Bali since she was 2 years old and now we are based here we love the idea of likeminded travellers enjoying our Darwin apartment and our home in Bali!
We love living here in Seminyak for it's thriving restaurant scene, great beaches and endless activities. I have a small art gallery close to my villa in Bali featuring original fine art by a variety of local and international artists and I love to invite my guests to come and enjoy a glass of wine with me and take in the current exhibition.
We return home to Darwin regularly throughout the year to catch up with friends, family and attend to home turf matters and when we do we are reminded of just how beautiful a city Darwin is..
We really do have the best of both worlds!
