About the Homestay
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.
Nice stay with Barbara who didn’t hesitate to show me few beaches and was helpful as I didn’t have a car. Nice stay !
Very hospitable host
