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 the northern beaches. It is on the bus route direct into Cairns. There are some nice walking trails close by and a cycle path. It is very close to the Botanical Gardens, public swimming pool, tennis courts and library. There is a wine bar and Cafe near by.

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 second bedroom (Bedroom2) has large built-in wardrobe, casual chair, queen bed, bedside lamps, ceiling fan and is air conditioned. There is a bar fridge with tea/coffee making. A T.V. for personal use. Shared bathroom with bath tub/shower and separate toilet/vanity.

The self contained double bedroom (Bedroom 1) has queen size bed, built-in large wardrobe, mirror, ceiling fan. This room has own bathroom, lounge, full size fridge/freezer, microwave, oven and electric cook top, tea/coffee making, cutlery, pots, dishes, glassware and dining table. Sliding patio door to outside area.
Facilities for laundry washing provided with outside clothes line for drying. Both rooms have own entrance.

I am available at the weekend and if required, act as Tour Guide to 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.

    We stayed here for a week when we came to Cairns. The room was absolutely lovely, clean, reasonably priced and with all the amenities you could possibly need. Barbara was the perfect host. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    I have loved my stay here with Barbara...so much ...that I have extended my stay.
    From the welcome drink on arrival, Barbara is the most generous host and I would have no hesitation in recommending this homestay to anyone considering it.
    The room is very well equipped and beautifully presented. It is situated in an ideal position...access to the city or northern beaches are within a short drive.
    Thanks Barbara for allowing me to stay here...it is greatly appreciated.

    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 250 $£€ 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.
