Spacious one bedroom apartment in the heart of the parliamentary triangle - minutes away from Canberra's key attractions (Parliament House, Lake Burley Griffin, the Foreshore, national museums/galleries) and government departments. Sleeps up to four. Comfortable (ergoflex mattress and king furniture sofa/sofabed). Full kitchen, separate laundry - with a covered balcony - and a bathroom with a tub. Secure underground parking. Pls email enquiring about availability before booking. Ta:)
Huge, comfortable space with the highest quality furnishings.
The extra large bedroom has its own reading nook, study area and plenty of wardrobe/cupboard space. The queen-sized bed has an Ergoflex memory foam mattress (because what's more important that a good nights rest?)
Our living room has the highest quality sofa bed - king furniture - and flat screen TV and surround sound audio system. For a night in, you can enjoy some of our (literally) hundreds of DVD movies and TV shows. Brand new air conditioner installed in October. Wifi is of course also included.
We have a separate dining area and even a separate laundry with front loading washing machine, iron and full sized ironing board. We have a covered patio, so you can hang your clothes and not worry about them getting wet.
We're 10-20 mins walk (or 5 minutes drive) away from pretty much all of Canberra's key attractions - Parliament House, Old Parliament House (Museum of Australian Democracy), National Archives, National Portrait Gallery, National Gallery of Australia, and Questacon, just to name a few. Manuka Oval is only a block away. Bike rental available for a small fee (please let us know on booking if you require bikes).
We have a full kitchen (new Fisher and Paykel dishwasher) with microwave, and breakfast (coffee, tea, milk, bread, eggs, condiments, cereal, fruit) is included - help yourself to whatever we have in the fridge/pantry.
Bathroom has a full tub - we have candles and bath salts for you - so you can relax after a long day sight-seeing (or a hard day's work!). Linen, towels and toiletries are included.
Pool is available to use (currently undergoing renovations) and we have secure underground parking.
Please note the apartment is on the second floor, and there are two flights of stairs.
Interaction with guests
I live in Canberra (work and live very close to the apartment) so either myself or my partner should be able to help out with any issues you may have. Also more than happy to recommend things to do, see and eat!
Check-in is 3pm and check-out is 11am, but we'll be as flexible as we can, depending on whether we have other bookings on the same day.
Other things to note
Would be great if you could drop me a note asking about availability of your dates before making a booking request-I respond pretty quickly! And just in case the calendar hasn't been updated - if you'd like to visit on a date that is unavailable/blocked out, please send me a message!
- No parties/large gatherings in apartment please, and we'd appreciate care being taken not to disturb the neighbours
- Please take care of keys/fobs. Lost keys/fobs cost $80 to replace (this is just the replacement cost - fobs are expensive!) and will be taken from the security deposit.
- Please note 11 am check out time. We try to be flexible when we can, but unfortunately need to stick to a strict 11am checkout if we have another guest arriving on the same day. We reserve the right to charge for late checkouts ($10 per 10 minutes).
- if you are traveling together with other guests, please provide full names of all guests who will be staying. Thanks!
- Minimum age for booking is 21 years old
