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.
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.
Maximum occupancy is 2 guests.
We are happy to provide flexible check-in/check-out times by prior agreement. However, if another guest books on the day of arrival or departure, check-in will be 2pm, and check-out 11am.
If parking pass, room pass and key are not returned on departure, a $70 replacement fee will be charged for each.
We kindly ask you to keep the noise down after 9pm, and be considerate of the neighbours at all other times, thanks.
