Overview

About the property

Your own self contained cottage set amongst a tropical garden. If you want to get away for a weekend or need a base to visit Jumping Crocodile cruises on Adelaide River, Windows on the Wetland, Fogg Dam, Kakadu and Litchfield National Parks. This is an place to stay. You can easily do day trips from here and return to your own little oasis.

This is our family property we are 35km out of Darwin in the 'Rural Area'. We live on the block and the HomeStay is a separate cottage fully self contained.

The Cottage is quirky and original. With one airconditioned bedroom that has a Queen and Pull out single bed. There is a TV with DVD in the bedroom and out in the living area. The shade cloth enclosed verandah has a small yet fully functional kitchen with a lounge area with three lounges. One of which makes up into a comfortable double bed. This is area is fan cooled. All of this overlooks your own private garden with outdoor living area. You can cook on the BBQ and eat outdoor with a full sized dining setting and living area.

The bathroom is fully renovated and semi-detached, adding an unique atmosphere. There is a washing machine and your own clothes line.

Feel free to walk around our five acres and visit Monica our cow whilst being accompanied by Gypsy and Angus our too friendly small dog's. The chooks will come and visit, feel free to feed them. The birds are active during the day, whilst possums, bats and other wildlife are frequent visitors. We are registered Land for Wildlife Members.

If you want to cool down there is the 30foot inground pool. A perfect way to relax down after a day of sightseeing.

Wet Season (October-May) - we suggest the cottage is only suitable to sleep up to 3 people in the air-conditioned bedroom. As the humidity is very high during the build up it can be uncomfortable sleeping in the fan cooled living area.

Like a 2nd home

  • 5 of 5

We've repeatedly come back here as the hospitality. Joyce and the family are extremely welcoming. My only hesitation to giving this property 5 stars is that it'll become too popular!

Home in the NT

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in July 2017 and was one of my NT highlights, great to have a home to come back to after a long day out and about. Owners were very hospitable and the property was welcoming. Will recommended to family and friends and hope to return one day.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My partner, myself and our 2 dogs recently stayed at Humpty Doo Homestay while finalising our move from Darwin to Sydney. The property was fantastic. So lovely and peaceful! The cottage was great and had everything we required. Thank you to Tracey and Joyce for a wonderful end to living in Darwin.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We could not be happier with our experience at home stay cottage. From the first moment we met Joyce she was lovely and welcoming. The cottage was a perfect place to explore what the top end had to offer.

Thanks Joyce for your hospitality

AWESOME!! (as described by our 15 year old son)

  • 5 of 5

What a sensational place to stay. Suited us totally. We loved it.

Thanks Joyce for everything; sharing your oasis, your local knowledge, your advice where to visit and what to see/do. A special mention to the puppies, Angus and Gypsie, for making us feel at home and of course Monica (moo). Thanks for loaning us your torch so we could enjoy the nocturnal visitors to your garden and ... all the home made biscuits!

It was perfect ... AWESOME!!
