My home is in a lovely quiet area next to a Reserve with lots of trees and greenery. It is only a few kilometres to the City and Domestic/International Airport and is on the bus route. There are some nice walking trails close by and a cycle path. I am very close to the Botanical Gardens, public swimming pool and tennis courts.

I have a nice garden and patio to enjoy and a beautiful dog which is very friendly (Dalmatian). She lives outside in her own spacious area but loves to greet guests if allowed.

The twin bedroom has two single beds, large built-in wardrobe, desk, chair, lamp, ceiling fan and nice view of the garden. Shared bathroom.

The double bedroom has queen size bed, built-in large wardrobe, mirror, ceiling fan. This room has own bathroom, lounge, bar fridge, microwave, tea/coffee making, cutlery, TV, dining table. Sliding patio door to outside area.
Facilities for laundry washing provided with outside clothes line for drying.

I am available at the weekend and if required, to act as Tour Guide and show my visitors the surrounding area, beaches, lagoon, night markets and Kuranda and Port Douglas.
I am sure you would have an enjoyable time and experience staying at Butterfly Haven.

    Nice house, very good and big room fitted with everything you need. Very friendly and helpful host. She took me to a tour ro Kuranda. I loved our chats in the evening.
    The public bus is not so nice. It departs just a short stroll from the house, but rarely every 30 minutes or in the evening or sundays once per hour. And when you return do not forget to tell the driver to stop at "Whitfield street", because in this direction there is no busstopsign.

    I recommend this accomodation.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
