About the property

Available week commencing 21st March.
We have a furnished upstairs bedroom in a fantastic location at Fannie Bay available soon. Listings at this price in this part of Fannie Bay are rare.

The modern townhouse is within a secure gated complex of three in Fannie Bay in a superior location of Fannie Bay .It is a mere one minute walk to Fannie Bay shops and #4 and #6 bus stops which run between Casuarina and Darwin City. Bus #4 also goes via Mindle Beach Markets and Casino. The Sailing/Boating Clubs are a 10 minute walk away for great bistro food and outstanding sunset viewing. Also the Fannie Bay Horse Racing track and Silks Tavern is less than a 5 min walk for a great day out.

The room is sunny with large mirrored built in robes and a small private balcony. Air Conditioning and ceiling fan are in the room. . The room is available for $200 for a single person as it is of a smaller than average size. The room is furnished with a Q/S bed with bedside table and a lamp. Parking is on street which is very safe in the area.

We have our own pool and garden BBQ area which all people are to share the minor upkeep of (weekly rubbish bin collection, picking up fallen palm fronds, cleaning pool, BBQ after use etc.)

The property has WiFi available and we share chores in the common areas. There is a cleaner who comes in once a week to clean floors and bathrooms (second smaller one downstairs) however the expectation is, the common areas are kept clean and tidy with everyone cleaning up after themselves (ie bathrooms, emptying kitchen rubbish/recycle bins).
Bills are Power and Water only $200 per quarter. Often less

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a party house and smoking is permitted outdoors ONLY and ashtray not left overflowing. The kitchen is okay but not large (two is a crowd) so self proclaimed budding Master Chefs need to show extra regard for others at crucial meal times and not dominate the kitchen
Although we don't ask for a bond - rent is to paid in advance by bank transfer and applicants MUST be currently employed (Letter of offer or payslip required) or don't bother applying. Because the room is not large it would suit a male FIFO/DIDO worker - which is our preference. All nationalities welcome.

About the flatmates

We are a professional group - 2 Aussie's (female) and a Kiwi (male) - well travelled and very easy to get on with. We have lived in shared homes off and on for many years, so we understand the need for others space and privacy and expect the same in return.
We are very sociable and enjoy our beer and wine at the weekend and music around the pool and BBQ. We still travel a lot and occasionally do dog sitting.

This is a very chilled and relaxed multicultural home. In recent times we have had Zimbabwean, French, Irish, New Zealand, American, English, Indian, Polish, Australian and the occasional Scotsman (sleeping under the stairs) so the person we are looking for needs to be tolerant of others and their respective life style customs.

NB: MUST be employed (absolutely no exceptions) and looking for longer term accommodation (min 9 months). Short stay and couples need not apply. However overseas travellers on work visa's and staying in Darwin are welcome. A FIFO worker is our preference but definitely not a deal breaker. However for the balance of the house a male is preferred. Definitely no couples.

As mentioned above we are a very easy going couple however former house mates have taken advantage of our generosity and done midnight runners either owing rent, stealing laptops, credit cards and much more. Others have shown scant regard for the etiquette of a house share (kitchen, house/garden chores, cleaning etc) All of the 'housemates' described have been very transient or not in regular employment or simply lazy.

So please read carefully the expected standards for our easy going and welcoming home. Apologies if the above statement seems hard arsed. If it does it means you don't fit the criteria or easily offended and this is not the place to apply for.

Thanks for getting this far :-)

Al and Ann (and Rhiannon)
