Blue Haven is one of the bigger bungalows on Lake Bennett, it is a very spacious 3 bedroom 3 bathroom property with both an indoor & outdoor living & dining area. You will have a fantastic undercover deck & BBQ area & your own private pontoon & even a back yard for the kids to play in.

The space
Blue Haven is one of the largest Bungalows on Lake Bennett it was built by the original owner of the Lake Bennett Resort for himself & his family to live in. It is a set in a secluded part of the lake with only 2 neighbours who are permanent residents.

Blue Haven can comfortably sleep 7 adults (a maximum of 10 if you are happy to bring your own swags/air mattresses & linen for the extra 3) it is ideally suited as a family getaway with 2 small families or 3 couples & a few kids. it is right on Lake Bennett which is 30mins south of Darwins Rural hub. It boasts a private pontoon right on the lake equipped with a 4mtr Boat (& elec motor) & 4 Kayaks & ample space if you want to bring your own kayaks, sailing boats, paddle boards etc). There is a large air conditioned kitchen & living area & huge indoor dining room overlooking the lake with massive 8 seat dining table all fully enclosed & air conditioned. The bedrooms are fully air conditioned, 2 bedrooms with ensuite & there is also an additional toilet & hand basin for the 3rd bedroom. The living area & master bedroom opens out onto your own secure deck with outdoor seating for 8 people & 6 burner BBQ & bar fridge, the deck area is enclosed via pool fencing & has a gate to access a ramp down to your private pontoon & the lake.

The lake is safe for swimming, fishing & all water sports. The Bungalow is equipped with a fully functional kitchen & laundry as well as 2 large fridge/freezers, dishwasher, microwave, rice cooker, slow cooker, electric frypan & all cooking utensils, plates, cutlery & a few hand reels as well as a few books & some DVD’s, it is your complete home away from home.

There is also Free to air TV & a DVD player & a 2nd TV & DVD player in the master bedroom for those who can drag themselves away from the water. As an added bonus (if you are bringing the teenagers) there is good Telstra phone reception but there is no wifi so you can enjoy a technology free break & pretend to live like we did back in the 80's & 90's, you will find it is surprisingly relaxing ;).

There are life jackets provided & a water filter jug in the fridge so all you need to bring is your food & drinks & please keep in mind where there is water there will be mosquitos & bugs as such we recommend you bring personal insect repellent as well.

Linens & bath towels are provided but we suggest bringing your own beach towels. Guests are required to clean up after themselves & leave the bungalow as they found it. Please wash & put away your dishes & please strip the beds of all dirty linens & leave them on the floor in the master bedroom. Additional guests are not permitted unless you have the owners approval prior to arrival.

We do allow some pets but this is by owners approval only as there are body Corporate rules in place in regards to pets in the bungalows, so you MUST send a request with details about your pet prior to Booking. Although we do not have a pet surcharge as yet, we do require any guests with an approved pet to vacuum & mop prior to check out & brush down furniture for stray pet hair.

Lake Bennett is a remote rural area and as such there can be a lot of bugs after dark at certain times of the year so it is a good idea to keep the windows, doors & curtains & blinds closed at night.

Our property is a home away from home it is not a big 5 star all inclusive resort & we are not trying to be :) it is aimed at the people who want to escape all the technology & mod cons & get back to basics for a few days & just simply RELAX.

We hope you enjoy your stay :)

Where you’ll be

Lake Bennett, Northern Territory, Australia

Lake Bennett is 20mins from Batchelor & we highly recommend The Rum Jungle Tavern for a quiet drink or an awesome meal. Litchfield National park is also a great day trip away.
