Honeybee House is a fully furnished and self-contained holiday home at Speewah, less than a 10 minute drive from the rainforest village of Kuranda in Tropical North Queensland.
We offer guests a quiet retreat in a comfortable two bedroom house on 5 acres of tropical gardens and rainforest.
The house will sleep a maximum of 6 guests in two queen size beds and a sofa bed. There is also a wood burning combustion heater in the lounge/dining area, which will ensure your comfort in the colder months of the year (June to August). Firewood is supplied free of charge.
Well-behaved pets are welcome. Pets are not allowed on the furniture. Any soiling of furniture will incur extra cleaning charges. Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up after their animal, both inside the house and in the garden.
Please do not leave your dog alone at the house if they might bark or escape. Barking will attract complaints from the neighbours, and roaming dogs will attract the attention of the Council Dog Ranger. It is fine for your dog to be inside with you, but not on their own, and never in the bedrooms or on the furniture.
We have a shady, fenced area on the side of the house.
The nearest swimming pool from Honeybee House is at the Speewah Tavern, just a couple of minutes drive away. This is a good place for dinner when you do not feel like cooking.
There is also the Kuranda Aquatic Centre at 262 Myola Road, Kuranda.
Kuranda is surrounded by World Heritage listed wet tropics rainforest with approximately 1,200 species of flowering plants, 800 of which are rainforest trees.
