Situated in a quiet loop street, this comfortable family home is available for short and medium term lets. Rather than stay at a B&B or a hotel rent an entire house. You will be less than a 5 minute walk from the popular Watson shops which provide groceries, a post office, a take-away, restaurants, hair salons and more. Plus bus connections to anywhere in Canberra. EPIC is within walking distance.

Cook at home inside in the well equipped kitchen or outside under cover on the BBQ.

Cockatoo House has one bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with bunks, one bedroom with a double bed and a study with another single bed. A portacot is available.

Two living areas provide plenty of space. Plus there is a covered deck and fully fenced back garden.

The Canberra Attractions

There is so much to see in Canberra and lots of it is free! Don't miss Old Parliament House or the War Memorial Museum to get a close up look at our history. Visit the Australian National Museum, Questacon, the National Gallery of Australia, the Botanic Gardens and Lake Burley-Griffin. If you visit the High Court or Parliament House at the right time you will see democracy in action!

Other Places of Interest

Other things to see around the Canberra area are the Zoo, Gold Creek Village and Mt Stromlo. Plus, right on your doorstep you can explore the Mt Majura nature reserve and have a personal encounter with the kangaroos!


Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Location fine and dog friendly which is why we booked. Had only basic furnishings / equipment required but blinds didn't shut fully so had early morning light. Deadlock didn't work, Couldn't lock garage door and front door needs repair as does rear window which we couldn't lock. No door in middle bedroom - open plan directly onto bathroom. Not impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A home away from home We loved our stay. The house was perfect for our dogs and us. Very quiet neighbourhood and only a short drive to all of Canberra's attractions. Just like a home away from home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent dog friendly property Really dog friendly with secure fencing our big German Shepherd loved romping around the backyard. Rooms large and plenty of room to entertain friends, dog and humans loved the house. Loved the fact that it was easy access to both Federal and Barton highways and still close to the city.
