Absolute Beachfront home
About Meri Williams
We purchased Golden Sands to renovate for our family home. With friends help we renovated it from top to bottom. The renovations took us 4 years. Most of the work was done on week-ends as we all had full time jobs. It was a lot of hard work but also so much fun. Work commitments have meant a move to a remote part of NT, so we are sharing our special piece of paradise with guests until we are in a position to return.
Why Meri Williams chose Wagait Beach
Golden Sands & Wagait Beach is a unique part of the NT. Close enough to Darwin to commute by ferry to work every day but so different from the city. It is where the bush meets the sea. Unspoilt, quiet & relaxing. The bird & wildlife are right at your front door/gate. Cool breezes from the ocean & the sounds of the waves gives it a special feel that calms the mind.

Every Dry Season
We’ve been here 3 years in a row and plan on coming back next year too.
The property, location, people and energy here are so good for the soul. It’s my favourite time of the year coming to stay at Golden Sands.
The house was great, lovely place to get away with the kids with tons of games. Will definitely stay again!
Thanks Josh & family for booking Golden Sands. We are very happy you enjoyed our piece of paradise. Look forward to seeing you again. Warm regards, Meri & Jeff
Golden Sands is an amazing house with lovely beach views. Had everything we needed and more.
Golden Sands was a lovely retreat for a family gathering for my 60th Birthday 🥳� It was great to have both my sons and their family staying under the same roof. The cricket pitch on the lawn was an instant success with the boys👍�🏏�They also loved the pool table 🎱� and the swimming pool 🏊�♂️ The walk along the beach was nice and my grandsons found some lovely shells🐚� It was good having two areas to watch tv with plenty of movies etc for the boys. We ate most of our meals outside on the back upstairs balcony - great views. Overall it was an enjoyable and lovely stay. 💙�
Fantastic place - great for our purpose!
We held our annual team planning day at Golden Sands.
Arriving Friday evening [after a leisurely drive from Darwin] we were greeted by Meri and soon felt very at home.
The house at both levels is very well appointed and we all enjoyed many home comforts, including the fantastic deck overlooking the ocean.
Our only thought was if the main living areas [either up or down] could be closed off and air conditioned it would have been better for our planning day as it did get quite warm in the middle of the afternoon.
Loved the pool - nice and cool.
Great BBQ and kitchen facilities.
Fantastic house, great view
This house has absolutely everything you need for a getaway. It is extremely private and there is plenty of space to spread out.
Thank you Lisa for your review & booking Golden Sands. We do enjoy sharing the Golden Sands/Wagait Beach experience with our guests. Wagait Beach is a perfect week-end getaway, being only 1.5 hours from Darwin. We hope to see you again. Warm regards, Meri
Very comfortable and well appointed!
You will want for nothing at this beachside spacious house which is only 100 metres from the golden sands of Wagait Beach across the harbour from Darwin.
Sleeping up to 8 adults in 4 double beds in the recently refurbished modern house with an option of three more cabins at the rear of the property.
We loved our stay and will be back as it is an ideal place for a group of friends for a weekend away as it is well located, well appointed and the room is space is plentiful.
Thank you John for your positive review. We are no longer offering the cabins as a renting option. We have supplied additional bedding options in the main house (2 x stretchers with HD foam mattress & single foam mattresses (linen supplied). We do hope to accommodate you & your family at Golden Sands again. Warm regards, Jeff & Meri
