The Space

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.

  • 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.

  • 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 :)

  • Port Douglas is stunning. Do yourself a favour and stay here rather than cairns which is tacky in comparison. Heather was a great host and very interesting to chat to. Unfortunately chicken was away so I didn't get to meet him. Maybe next time.

  • I had a very nice stay with Heather (and Chicken, her lovable dog). The house was very easy to get to, a short drive into town, and I parked in the driveway. Plus, tour operators had no problem picking me up from Opal St. Apart from the convenience of the house, Heather is such a lovely person. I only have great things to say and absolutely no reservations to share!

  • I had a lovely time at the fairy cottage... Both Heather and her boyfriend John were amazing hosts, helping me out in several ways, always inviting me to have dinner with them, and always in for a chat. Heather was often in so you will never feel alone if you travel solo :) The dog chicken was also great to play with... The breakfast was very generous, with all kinds of cereal, bread and butter and jam and milk and juice... hmmm! Lovely garden with nice pool. Not the cleanest house I ever visited, but I do not mind that so all in all it was a lovely stay.

  • Heather was a fantastic host. From the start she welcomed us into her house and invited us to make ourselves at home. She even made dinner for us and introduced us to her partner on one night.
    It really is a little tropical paradise - a pool in the backyard and lots of windows to let the breeze through. The room was clean and comfortable, and the air con certainly helped when it came to sleeping. Overall, highly recommended!

  • Heather is super sweet, and certainly eccentric. Great breakfast setup, wonderful home cooked dinner, and chicken the dog is a sweetheart.
