Perfect location with all comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

City Cottage was the ideal property for an extended family stay in Brisbane. Proximity to all services, including parks and bikeways, was a great advantage. The layout of rooms worked well, with a lovely covered deck area providing relaxed dining in superb Brisbane weather.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

We recently visited for a mother / daughters weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Brisbane. The house is quaint, well epuiped and very clean. Lovely deck and good location. Close to restaurants and bars in Paddington and short taxi trip to city and Southbank. I would definitely stay here again, suitable for families as the singles beds are actually upstairs and the double downstairs. Would have liked a second bathroom downstairs for five girls but we survived! Peter was helpful with information and we enjoyed the river festival flyover and fireworks from the balcony.

Wonderfully presented property close to everything

  • 5 of 5

City Cottage was a wonderful place to stay in Brisbane, close to the football stadium if that is your interest, easy bus route into the city and south bank, close to rail line or has off street parking if you have your own vehicle. The home had everything for five adults staying in Brisbane and we would not think twice about staying at the property again if it was available. The host met us at the house which was a lovely touch and small things like direct taxi phone lines and Wi-Fi were really helpful to us.
