Nestled in beautiful gardens & equipped with first class amenities, "The Annexe" is located on Canberra's premier street, in the heart of Old Canberra. Beautifully decorated, close to Parliament House and other tourist attractions, it is the perfect place for a luxurious yet peaceful getaway.

The space
The Annexe is luxuriously decorated with antiques and memorabilia and has top quality amenities. It is set in a beautiful old fashioned garden - camellias, azaleas, magnolia, daphne. There is your own secluded deck with chairs and table from which to enjoy it - and the resident bird life. Views from every window and a barrel vault with remote control blind makes the space incredibly light and airy. There is a private entrance with keyless entry and off street parking in your own driveway. Fresh flowers and a fruit bowl greet you on arrival. The new luxury queen size bed has premium Australian made Abode cotton sheets and a feather topper and you can pamper yourself with Australian made, organic toiletries in the walk-in rain shower. Under floor heating, air conditioning & reverse cycle heating ensure you are always perfectly comfortable. The kitchenette is equipped with Nespresso, T2 tea, bar fridge, microwave, toaster & kettle (no cooktop or oven) and you also have available a hair dryer, iron & ironing board. Enjoy free broadband internet with wi-fi access or lie back in bed to watch the flat panel TV with Foxtel (with platinum channels), Bluray player and Apple TV (you will need your own Apple ID). On request we can provide access to laundry, under cover parking, full kitchen and gym equipment.

Guest access
Guests have a private entrance & security system. The Annexe is 60m2 of luxury comprising 4 indoor areas: seating, dining/desk, kitchenette and sleeping. There is an ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe. There are 2 private outdoor areas - the deck with outdoor dining and The Lady Fountain terrace.

Other things to note
We have two German Shepherds who do not have access to any of The Annexe facilities - outdoor or indoor - but may be seen in the back garden (which is secured from the Annexe).
There is a 2m x 2m indoor space, with tiled floor and in-slab heating, where our canine visitors can stay for short periods whilst their families are out. However there is no secure outdoor space.
The gardens are filled with a continuous parade of native birds, there are possums in the surrounding trees and kangaroos literally at the back gate.
