Freshwater Retreat

A private retreat designed to provide an escape from the busy, modern life – the ultimate place to relax.

Situated on the southern fringes of Darwin City, Freshwater Retreat boasts a large four-bedroom house and four beautifully appointed safari-style villas. The entire property can be booked out privately or the main house and villas can be booked separately by guests.

The house features four spacious bedrooms, library, two enormous bathrooms, an open kitchen & dining room, living room, wellness gym, laundry and lagoon courtyard with your very own freshwater pet crocodiles! Each villa is elegantly furnished and equipped with a luxurious king bed, coffee pod machine, kettle, toaster and bar fridge along with a wonderful outdoor tropical bathroom.

This 2 and a half acre sanctuary and its lush green gardens are complemented with a billabong, turtle pond, saltwater plunge pool and communal games room and kitchen. Birds, including whistling ducks, magpie geese, jabirus and beautiful dancing brolgas, wander freely around the billabong and villas.

A small selection of quality ingredients are stocked in the fridges for guests to make their own breakfast and a guest compendium is provided in each room with lots of insider tips about local artists, restaurants and other must do tours.
