'Firefly Cottage' - a gorgeous timber cottage, ideal for couples looking for peace and quiet, quality accommodation and privacy in a tropical setting. Nestled on a two acre block in the hills behind Port Douglas with views over the cane fields out to the coast, this property is ideal for those that want all that Port Douglas has to offer without being in the centre of the busy town.
*Please note a hire car is essential (there are only 3 taxis in Port Douglas, limited Uber & no public transport).

The space
The cottage is fully air-conditioned, has a comfy king bed, quality linen and towels, free wi-fi and a large deck where you can enjoy relaxing meals prepared in the fully equipped kitchen or on the Weber barbecue. A breakfast starter pack is included.

And for the nature lovers we have a variety of birds and wildlife in the area, ranging from sunbirds, cockatoos, lorikeets and bush hens to goannas, gheckos, wallabies and butterflies. And as the name of our cottage suggests, you may get to see our fireflies.

Having retired from Qantas in 2013, I have spent the last 8 years building a new house, renovating our cottage and establishing a tropical garden on our 2 acre block in the hills behind Port Douglas. Kerry and I have lived in Far North Queensland since 1984 and we love Port Douglas and the tropics.
