Vogue Entertaining and Travel
"20 Great Holiday Homes Australia's finest from Beach Shacks to Bush Retreats"


"Jungle Look Me Tarzan You Jane Minutes from Darwin's CBD is a gorgeous complex of just five "jungle" villas on a property landscaped with rare plants and trees. The residences are set in the rainforest and have won many architectural awards The ambiance has a touch of Somerset Maugham about it with the benefit of all mod cons, as well as waterfall pools set in the rainforest - so forget about languishing like a world-weary expat in the heat. The beach, golf course, Darwin's restaurants and the buzzy Mindl Beach Markets are an easy walk away"

"Luxury Lifestyles - The Luxurious Moods of Moonshadow"

The luxurious Moods of Moonshadow In Xanadu did Kublai Khan a stately pleasure dome decree.. Perhaps Coleridge, in a differ time and place, was dreaming of Moonshadow Villas. Moonshadow was voted one of the 6 winners of the Top Winter Resorts in Australia from the theme linen on cloud soft beds to the sublime waterfall sandstone and greenstone pools, the Ganesha decorated with frangipani and candles at dusk, Moonshadow offers a vision of Bali and echoes of the Raj.

"Delicious Darwin" by Matt Preston and Catherine Sutherland

Darwin is becoming a city where good coffee is right not a rarity and where keen cooks can find ingredients they've never heard of, let alone seen down south. Where the fragrance of lemongrass and papaya from Hawkers stalls scent the air And Where to stay? Moonshadow Villas - Set in tropical gardens with luxe pool facilities, these five villas all have private courtyards..

Science Illustrated - "Australian Edtion"


I am dropped off at Moonshadow Villas, a tiny slice of tropical luxury.
It's easy to miss, perched outside the city centre near the Botanical Gardens. The Rain Shower and the opulent living area are very welcoming.
This time the Gecko's stay outside the windows (unlike Lake Bennett) and I sleep better than I have for years Rhiannon Elston Editor

Virgin Blue Voyeur "First Class Darwin";
Annabel McGilvray

Boutique Resort Moonshadow Villas has won a bag of architectural awards for its design and Peter and Moya Buckley provide top-class hospitality to match. It is a man-made oasis, with more than a little Indonesian influence. Each Villa is subtly different with beautiful furniture selected by Moya and artworks by Peter in a tropical glade behind Darwin's Botanical Gardens.

Australian Geographic "Defending Darwin".

Tucked into a Darwin valley of rainforest with its own microclimate, butteflies and wild birds, Moonshadow Villas are spacious and unique. The sounds and sights of oversize white possums, orange footed jungle fowl, finches and the scrabble of lizards of incredible variety give ample excuses for tenjoy the luxury and continual adventure of the Northern Territory.
Situation on rare hill land that was part of the original War victualling yards for the Army, this area was hidden and secure..

Thank You!
