WHAT PEOPLE SAY
What Our Guests Say...
"The place is set up well for fishing groups with single air conditioned rooms but also caters for couples & families with double rooms, the commercial kitchen with plenty of fridge & freezer space is excellent, huge air conditioned lounge room/ tea room is good for just chilling out, we spent most of the time on the large deck area taking in the view & cooling off in the pool"
"Owie made us feel very welcome, home away from home! Facilities are great, so you don’t need to bring much, views are amazing and the location is perfect. You can see the sunset from the deck and hear the waves crashing against the rocks! Very relaxing!! Great spot for when you want to get out of the city or just experience the beautiful top end coast!! It has something for everyone and every occasion and I can’t rate it highly enough!"
"It has a spacious dining, lounge and deck area. Loads of bedrooms with ensuites and AC, many with bar fridges. Really good location, walking distance to the boat ramp and pub/general store. Great sunsets and a lovely pool to relax in. If you are looking for good service and accommodation then this is the place for you."
"We loved our stay at Skippers. Owie was a brilliant host making us feel super welcome. Sitting at the outside table eating crab as the sun went down was unforgettable. The kitchen was well equipped. The lodge is within walking distance of the main boat ramp and bar/restaurant. I would highly recommend this accommodation."
JULES & RICH
Thanks Owie, incredibly relaxing! As a local this is an ideal place to get away. Piece of paradise.
"Skippers has a great sized lounge room, full kitchen, BBQ, big outdoor table on the deck and a pool. It's great to have a BBQ then sit on the deck having a few drinks while watching the sun set over the water. We got married at sunset on the lawn down by the water. There was plenty of room to put the tables and chairs for 45 guests and plenty of room for the caterers too. Having a full kitchen made it easy."
What an amazing place Skippers represents. Owner, Owie was very welcoming & went beyond expectations! Everything you need & more. Views awesome & very close to local eating establishment & boat ramp. If your lucky, you might have a few songs of an evening!!!
"This accommodation only became available shortly before we booked it. Honestly we did not know what to expect, and it really delivered. The sunsets are beautiful and the host are even better. Owie & Ben make your stay as comfortable as possible . It is very unique with a well equipped communal kitchen and lounge/sitting area. It is a real family atmosphere from the time you arrive. Don’t forget to ask Owie to belt out a song or two."
Beautiful location and facilities. The owner was friendly and communicated with us straight away about the check in and provided helpful ideas for us who had not been there before. The rooms were clean and mordern. This was a wonderful stay and we will definitely return for a longer stay. One night was not enough.
What a place to get away and be treated like royalty! Rooms are spacious and clean. Massive deck to sit under and watch the sunset, a cold beer in the pool after a big day of catching Barra! The best part was Owie hosting us and constantly making sure we were happy!
PAUL & NICOLE
Can’t believe it’s taken us 5 years of living in Darwin to find this place. Will definitely be back. Thank you.
What an absolutely unforgettable experience in the Northern Territory with great people. I've travelled overseas and seen some things but wow I've been missing out on so much in our own backyard, until now!Highly recommend travelling up here with the boys and photos don't even do it justice. Thanks guys! Will be back again
We had our wedding at Skippers recently, it was absolutely perfect! Owie made everything so easy for us to use the space to suit our style, and we enjoyed a beautiful 4 nights there with family and friends. Skippers is well maintained and had everything we needed! Dundee put on a pretty special sunset for our southern family as well. Thanks Owie and Skippers!
Dundee Beach is quite remote, but the rooms and service provided by Skippers and by Owie on the property are just perfect. We had a wonderful 2 night stay, wish we could have stayed longer. Don't forget to take a look at the stars at night!
Best weekend getaway, accomodation is immaculate well set up rooms that are ensuited. The huge kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The indoor tv lounge has enough seating for everyone, and the outdoor deck where we spent most of our time was just fantastic. Views of the water are amazing. Extra bonus point to Owie for being a great host and thanks for a great weekend.
BETTY & ROBBY
Owie at skippers made sure our 2 night stay was extremely warm and homely. my partner, daughter and I stayed mid week and used the lodge as our home away from home during our fishing trip. Skippers is extremely relaxing, and very clean. The amenities are surprising above what you would expect being out of Darwin. We have been in Darwin for 15 years, this is the first time we have been to Skippers and Dundee, we will be Skippers regulars after this great experience.
Such a lovely place to stay, great hospitality. All you need is here and very friendly and welcoming people.
Owie made everyone feel very welcome and at home. He helped us out where possible and always checked in with us to ensure everything was going smoothly. He even treated us to a couple of songs on the guitar!
The property was already amazing, and with more improvements in the pipeline, I won't be staying anywhere else other than Skippers when I go to Dundee in future!
We stayed at Skippers for 4 nights and held our wedding there. Owie went above and beyond to help us set up the wedding of our dreams. The venue has a great location and a very relaxing atmosphere. I will definitely stay again.
Skippers at Dundee is a must do destination in the Territory. It has a wonderful setting, comfortable accommodation and brilliant fishing and adventures hosted by the president of Dundee, Owie Paroz. Sipping an icy ale in the pool whilst watching the ocean absorb the sun is worth the stay alone. We enjoyed our freshly caught barramundi expertly cooked sweet chilli style by Owie and day tripped to Litchfield and Darwin during our stay. I will definitely return and endorse Skippers with 5 stars. See you in the NT!
Our whole family stayed at Skippers for five days - it was a fantastic holiday. Nothing we asked for was too much trouble - fantastic place and people! Especially the fishing charter that was organised - just so well organised.
Our number one spot to go to when we have guests staying at Dundee beach! So close to all the action and amazing views straight over the beautiful Dundee coastline. Not to mention the best host in Darwin Owie who goes out of his way to ensure everyone is well catered for. If you are ever looking for great accommodation and the best place to visit in Dundee you can’t go past Skippers.
We spent two very enjoyable days at Skippers. The location is perfect - a beautiful sea view & a short distance to the Lodge if you wish to buy meals. The outdoor deck area is a great place to relax, watch the boats, lovely birds & spectacular sunsets. Skippers is an ideal venue for special occasions, groups of family & friends & people who love fishing. The rooms are small & simple, but quite comfortable. Owie is a wonderful host - friendly & helpful. I would love to return with our family some day.
The property was very well located and had everything we needed and more. The set up, the rooms and the outdoor area are well maintained and looked after. The property and the rooms were very clean and the host was fantastic. Great Hospitality and couldn’t help us enough. He let us drop our bags off early due to a boat trip we had planned and was easily contactable. You made our stay more than enjoyable. I would definitely recommend the property for a weekend or a night away.
Staff was outstanding and made you feel at home. views were amazing. Rooms were clean and tidy. And well set up. We highly recommend.
Brilliant place to stay with beautiful views over the water, we had my 50th birthday party here and were looked after from booking to departure. Big thanks to Owie for a great weekend. Highly recommend to anyone who wants a great place to stay and relax or for a function or fishing getaway.
What can I say. An absolute gem of a place! 11 of us visited from Darwin. Rooms were immaculate, clean, fresh linen and spotless ensuite in every room. The kitchen was super sized and equipped to the max. A lovely tv/ communal area. The deck was great, seating for everyone and a view to die for. The pool was clean and with a squeeze fitted all 11 of us. Owie was a legend, great host and catered for all our needs. He even banged out a few tunes over a few beers in the evening!
Great beachfront location just up from the boat ramp. Pool, big deck area with enough chairs for everyone around a huge table and a massive grass area for a game of cricket. Hospitality was spot on, felt very welcome there, like we were all catching up with an old mate that by the way is very handy on the guitar & has a voice to back it too - Cheers Owie. See you again soon mate.
This gem is located on the beach and the sunsets are brilliant to watch as you sip on your drink eating nibblies. Owie, the host is friendly and obliging, the rooms are clean and there is a huge fully functional kitchen to use if the need arises. The walks along the rocks and sandy, clear beaches are stunning. The local pub puts on a great meal. If you are into fishing then this location is for you. The road from Darwin is fully sealed. We enjoyed 2 nights here away from the crowds.
Friendly staff and a beautiful view of the ocean. Large socialising area, pool, washing machine, clean rooms with ensuite. What more could you want!
Location, value, Owie the operator, the layout and the view was OMG and the facilities were amazing. Could check in whenever as long as the room was available. The pool, BBQ's and entertaining decks are also excellent. Owie went above and beyond for us and was super helpful and very easy to deal with. Loved the place.
I've had the pleasure of visiting Dundee and recently Skippers for many years, and there's no doubt that Skippers just keeps on getting better and better.
It's not just that it provides the best facilities to relax and unwind directly on the shoreline, looking out across the lawn to the Ocean, but the great people who own and run this fantastic NT business. Owie as always is a wonderful host, who cannot do enough to please, and there's the flexible opportunities to visit other local NT gems in Lichfield, Tipperary Station, and some of the best fishing hot spots in the area to make your trip just what you want.
And the fishing? Hang On tight - it goes off!
Already planning our next trip in 2020!
We thoroughly loved our brief stay here and will be back, I’m sure! The rooms were clean, the facilities were sufficient if you were there for a few days of fishing, R & R or property hunting in the area. Owie was a wonderful host. We highly recommend Skippers.
