About this listing
The Fairy Cottage - Port Douglas, Queensland where the extraordinry Great Barrier Reef meets the World's oldest Rainforest.
A friendly fairy welcome awaits you at the Fairy Cottage where you are greeted at the driveway by a beautiful fairy letterbox and where fairies and unicorns abound.
A clean and neat double room with shared bathroom facilities with your fairy lady hostess. A continental breakfast is provided for you if you are feeling a little peckish. The Fairy Cottage has a lovely airy and light living and dining area.
There is also a smaller single room with two single beds..
If you feel the need to cool off there is a salt water swimming pool to swim, splash and play in. The pool is beside the BBQ and covered outdoor dining area.
To complete your stay with the Fairy Lady is my "Scooby Doo" look alike dog, a genial goofy Ridgeback by the name of "Chicken".
Five minute walk to the bus stop. Buses run in and out of town approximately every twenty minutes. There is a supermarket, chemist and bottle shop within walking distance of approximately 250 metres.
Your fairy lady hostess can assist you in selecting tours and fun things to do during your stay... from the reef to the rainforest. My partner John, who lives down the road, is a marine biologist, and can offer expert advice on the best tours available to the Great Barrier Reef, suited for your needs and sense of adventure.
So for a happy time with lots of fun come and stay at the Fairy Cottage.
Guests have access to the entire property.
Interaction with Guests
I absolutely adore meeting new people and having a chat with them. Its so nice to meet people from all over the world.
Its a lovely friendly neighbourhood. Stopping for a chat with neighbours. Its a lovely area with lots of trees and Opal Street is a fairly quiet street.
Yes there is. There is a bus stop at The Wildlife Habitat which is a five minute walk away. From there you can catch a bus into town which is about 5kms.
1. Must love dogs.
2. Must be prepared for a lovely and happy stay.
Heather is a super sweet lady and a wonderful host. She made our stay very enjoyable and she was a pleasure to talk with. She also is extremely helpful and easy going. For example we were going to watch the world soccer cup at 5:00 am in her living room and she was totally fine with that even though that meant that we probably woke her up! We had a great time in Port Douglas at the Fairy Cottage!
We would definitely recommend Heather.
Heather was there to meet me with a hug. My room was ready for me and I was able to make myself at home. Chicken, Heather's friendly dog, is an adorable addition to the house but I had trouble getting used to her when she greeted me at the door. (I am not that used to dogs). Heather's place is an hour plus 10 minute walk from Port Douglas shops but you can get into town on a local bus that runs regularly.
The FAIRY LADY and John and the coolest dog ever (Chicken)... We LOVE you so much it was a blessing and a truly fun experience to stay with you. Thank You for the great times and laughs. Thank you for dinner and our AWESOME reef trip. We will never forget BEST time ever. You are an amazing host and we miss you already but we do know we will see you again soon.
A fantastic stay with the lovely Fairy Lady! Such a welcoming home and you are at put at ease almost immediately with the friendly atmosphere and gorgeous Chicken the dog. Heather also put out a great selection for breakfast and she was extremely knowledgeable and insightful into the tours and recommendations around Port Douglas. I won't forget Cane Toad racing in a hurry! Definitely a great place to stay in Port Douglas and I would happily go and stay with Heather and Chicken again.
Had a great stay with heather and her dog chicken. Comfy room and convenient location (short drive to town). Heather was a pleasant host and her dog is so adorable :)
My daughter and I were well looked after by Heather.. clean comfy beds, quiet location, short drive into town. Heather made dinner for us first night, well stocked variety of cereals for breakfast.. bar fridge for our own use. Shared bathroom. Heather owns a Friendly large young dog.. but our older small dog was not keen to play.
Had an awesome stay with Heather and pooch Chicken in Port Douglas in their little slice of paradise. Absolutely recommend :)
