Saltwater Suites – The best place in Darwin to stay, dine and enjoy…

Our team at Saltwater Suites offers you our newest property right in Darwin’s popular Waterfront Precinct!! We have only 3 bespoke Apartments ranging from 1, 2 & 3 bedroom Executive Waterfront Apartments.  You can stay with us from 4 night and up all the way up to 90 nights.  At this stage we are not offering stays of 3 nights or less however only LAST MINUTE (in next 7 days) – check our online booking calendar to see if we have allocated any.

Since COVID – our model has changed, we unfortunately dont do 3 night stays anymore (unless last minute – check our website for any last minute deals), we dont have a showroom at the Waterfront to collect the keys from (as we work from our virtual office nearby) to streamline the business, but we do have an easy system to collect your keys from our lockboxes on site and we are not far away.

Our properties are located right at 5 Anchorage Street and 19 Kitchener Drive, Darwin City (the Waterfront) and all properties are managed by Top End Short Stays, who carefully monitor each one to ensure standards are maintained. And you are offered a carefree stay.

Our property management team will do everything they can to make your holiday most enjoyable.  Should you need any of the following we will be only too happy to arrange them for you: baby needs, car seats, beach accessories, tour information.

Darwin is a top holiday destination with one of the most famous street markets in the world, Mindil Beach Markets. Take the time to eat out in one of the fabulous restaurants down at the Waterfront, or enjoy a stroll along the esplanade. Darwin City also has a wide range of places to eat. Whatever you choose to do on your holiday, one of the best places to do it is right here. See you soon…

Please note there is one allocated underground carspace – FREE – for each apartment booking. The height restrictions are 2.1m – if you have a camper van or similiar there is very limited off-street parking – you will have to park 5 minutes walk away to find something that may suit!
