A modern apartment in the prestigious Nishi building (2015 International Project of the Year - Building Awards London). A place to see Canberra at its best with panoramic views across the landscape of the national capital. Located in the city, in the New Acton cultural precinct, abuzz with restaurants, bars, cinema, and cutting edge art & design, this spacious home-in-the-sky is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Walk to national cultural attractions, university & lake.

The space

SELF CONTAINED APARTMENT: The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering, with a good range of cooking utensils, and a supply of tea & sugar and basic condiments. We supply towels and linen.

NO PARTIES PLEASE! Keep the noise down, we would like to stay friends with our lovely neighbours.

FREE PARKING: The cost includes a single basement parking space for the duration of your stay. Please ensure that you return the parking pass on departure, or a $70 replacement fee will be charged.

HEATING & COOLING: Nishi is one of the most ecologically sustainable urban apartment buildings in Australia, setting benchmarks in environmentally friendly design, low energy use and carbon emissions. Cooling is by a natural cross ventilation system - so there is NO AIR CONDITIONING. Don't panic, we'll show you how to operate this natural cooling system to ensure your comfort. In winter, hydronic heating will also keep you comfortable, however, we find the thermal efficiency of the apartment so good we rarely use it!

RESTAURANTS, BARS AND CAFES: The precinct offers a huge choice of venues to eat, drink and celebrate in style. Business travellers will find New Acton a fine place to bring clients and do business.

CINEMA & GALLERY: Nishi is located in the New Acton Cultural Precinct. There is a multiplex cinema 'Palace Electric' on the ground floor, showing the latest mainstream, arthouse and classic movies. The precinct is packed with amazing outdoor sculpture and funky garden designs. The extensive public spaces, too, are filled with art. New Acton is a creative hub.

BIKE HIRE is available nearby, a great way to see the national cultural attractions around Lake Burley Griffin.

PHOTOGRAPHERS, be prepared for spectacular sunsets. The big-sky and mountain views from our balcony are some of the best in the national capital. Anyone for cocktails?

MUSEUMS AND UNIVERSITY: The apartment overlooks the beautiful campus of the Australian National University, the National Museum, the Academy of Science and the Film and Sound Archives. A five minute drive away (or twenty minute bike ride along lakeside promenades) lies the National Gallery, Portrait Gallery, National Library and the Australian War Memorial.

This apartment is in an amazing building and neighbourhood; the developers wanted to build a Community and did so in such an inviting manner. The accommodation itself was faultless for us and we would happily stay again!

We wish that we could have stayed more than one night! This apartment was so lovely and the view simply stunning! Stuart was there to meet us and show us around. The apartment has everything you could possibly need. The collection of books and art was wonderful too. Comfy bed with quality linen bedding offered us a very comfy sleep and the fridge and cupboard were stocked with all the basics. We look forward to coming back to Canberra soon and wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Couldn't ask for a more perfect location and apartment to stay in Canberra, we will always check the availability of this premises each time we need to visit Canberra. Everything available in complex, great food, bars and a cinema, you don't need to leave, but at the same time if you wish to its only a 5 min walk to all of Civic shopping & theatres etc. Super stylish, restful and quiet, and check in by Ellis was swift and so easy. Definitely a must stay to experience when next in Canberra.

The Nishi Building is very special, and in an amazing precinct. Everything you could want is close by. Stuart's home is lovely and his son, Ellis did a great job checking us in. Such a treat to be able to stay in such a home.

This is my second time in this amazing home. The feel, view and location is on point. The sunset view from the balcony is something you just have to see for yourself to understand it’s magic. Stuart you’re an amazing host. Thank you; I look forward to my next stay.

Stuart’s place has great views, is very well looked after, very clean and perfectly managed. The place is excellent and so is the management. I recommend staying at this place. Further location is ideal in ACTON.
