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.

Humpty Doo golf course is only around the corner.

Fogg Dam conservation park, with it's abundance of birds, crocodiles and wildlife

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!! (as described by our 15 year old son) 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing and comfortable We stayed here for one night on our way out to Kakadu, and so we could visit nearby Fogg Dam. It was a nice relaxing spot to stay and excellent value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Marvelous Monica We stayed at Humpty Doo HomeStay Cottage for 2 weeks when we relocated from the UK to Darwin. The cottage is wonderful, very comfortable, very clean and well equipped with everything you could need. The gardens surrounding the cottage are absolutely beautiful. Joyce and Tracy are perfect hosts and made us feel very much at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were sorry to leave. The cottage and gardens are a credit to both of them and reflect their hard work and commitment to make their guests' stay as perfect as possible.We wish them both continued success with the cottage. New country, new friends, what more could you ask. Gypsy and Angus are an absolute delight (pity we couldn't smuggle them out in our suitcases) and we fell in love with Monica. Be ready with carrots during your stay! We would wholeheartedly recommend Humpty Doo HomeStay Cottage for your stay in Darwin, a very special place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A quite escape We really enjoyed our stay. Conveniently located to the major tourist attractions. Loved the tropical gardens and the modern up to date bathroom. Our hosts provided everything we needed including home made biscuits and were hardly seen or heard. Thanks for a great time Christine and Russell.
