We stayed for 4 nights in May whilst visiting family living in Palmerston. Owners Jan & Brian were extremely accommodating and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in both apartments as there were so many of us (6 adults, 3 kids and 1 baby), the 2 bedroom ground floor apartment has a fantastic outdoor area over looking the pool... More

We were very happy with Palmerston Sunset Retreat. Clean and well appointed. Nice position giving us a nice tropical aspect with the pool and palm gardens. The location was in between the main areas of Darwin and Rural suburbs which was ideal for our planned visits. I recommend this over the hotels in the area. A lot easier to access.... More

The room was clean and quiet. We enjoyed the breakfasts and especially the mangos from their farm. We especially appreciated Jan's knowledge and advice on tourist activities. We hope to visit Australia and Darwin again and would not hesitate to use this B and B

We stayed for 7 nights at the retreat. Jan and Brian went out of their way to make us feel at home. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The resort is hidden away from the main roads which makes it very peaceful and have beautiful tropical plants at the back. It's also about 2 mins drive... More

The description and reviews promised a lot for this suburban B&B but we were a bit disappointed. Accommodation in Darwin is expensive and this is no exception at $275 per night not including breakfast although Jan did give us some lovely mango from their farm. We were two family couples who stayed in the Kadek Suite and the suite is... More

A very comfortable, even elegant, place to stay in a quiet and handy location, with very pleasant and friendly hosts. We stayed upstairs for a few nights before moving down to the larger family unit (book early!). Both 'units' were well set up, functional, clean and nicely furnished.
