About the property

Our Cottage is extremely spacious and perfect for wheelchairs.

We would love you to stay in our delightful Pet Friendly, Bush Setting cottage, situated only 10 minutes from all the lively activities of the wonderful Gold Coast. Whether you are seeking a comfortable family holiday with pets included or just a relaxing, peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle, you will find both here

You will be greeted with a basket of yummy goodies including a bottle of wine plus there will be fresh organic milk and a loaf of wholemeal bread in your fridge. We also supply all you basic kitchen requirements I.E. fresh and instant coffee, tea plus all condiments.

Our cottage is a 3 bedroom fully self contained house with tiled floors throughout the main living areas which enables your dog to live easily inside with you. (We can also accommodate for extended guests in our gorgeous 1 bdrm fully self contained cottage only 20 metres away. We also offer this as seperate accommodation if you only require 1 bedroom. This is fully fenced for a dog who likes to wander.)

This can be booked on Homeway under the website KNOT2FAR COTTAGE. Dogs are welcome inside both cottages on the tiled areas but not in the bedrooms.

The main living area is open plan with two seperate lounges, a six seating dining table, a huge very usable kitchen with a buffet and three bar stools. ( Great for a chat during cooking time)

The master bedroom consists of a queensize bed and an ensuite. The double bedroom has two single beds and the single bedroom has one single bed. All bedrooms have ceiling fans.

Outdoor Facilities

There is plenty of outdoor seating which overlooks the swimming pool and has spectacular Valley views. You would be amazed at the rising of the moon over the hills.

There is a flat concreted area for children to ride their bikes on plus flat grassed areas to play on. A game of swing ball is set up outside for children ( or adults still in their childhood).

We have a horse paddock which is now used as a wonderful exercise area for dogs as our very old family horse recently passed away. The loss of our horse was too sad to replace him with another one and he would be happy to see dogs enjoying his paddock.

Dogs can run for hours on our land and there are plenty of grassed areas for going to the toilet. Our only request is they are fully supervised when out on the land as it is too large to fully fence. We just ask that you pick up their droppings and place them over the bank where nature attends to the rest. No plastic pooh bags required here Yahoo!.

We have an outside small courtyard which is fully fenced if you would like to leave your dog behind while you explore the many tourist attractions on The Coast. As we also live on the property with our 2 dogs, in our own cottage, we are available, by prior arrangement, to keep an eye on your dog while you are away for the day. Our previous guests have loved having this option and have always returned to a happy dog.


Our guests can not believe how close our cottage is to everything but yet feels as if you are miles away from civilization.

You will be staying on 3 acres of private beautiful bush surroundings and yet " Not So Far" from all the Gold Coast has to offer. The following are all driving distances:

Famous Burleigh Heads Beach 10 mins

Palm Beach off lead 10 mins

2 huge off lead dog parks 5 mins

About lee Barnao

We are New Zealand born and moved to beautiful Australia 20 years ago.

We love meeting new guests and adore dogs so you will be greeted by very friendly hosts. We also respect your privacy and understand when guests are visiting for a peaceful quiet break way.

lee Barnao purchased this cottage in 2002

Why lee Barnao chose Tallebudgera Valley

When you explore the Valley you will learn why we and all the locals chose to live here.

There are many hidden walkways and swimming creeks known only by the locals and you will feel very far away from activity. We also love the fact that we can drive only 10 minutes to the centre of Burleigh Heads which is the most popular beach and cafe scene on the Gold Coast.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property is one that we never tire of and returning home from the busy streets of the Gold Coast is always wonderful.

Some of our guests never want to leave the cottage and only venture as far as our local cafe.

Wow, Knotsofar has everything, Lee and Theo are the nicest people you would ever met. Thier property is a must for families and even like us, a couple with two dogs who just wanted to recharge our batteries. The home has everything you would ever need. As this was my two dogs first holiday they were so relaxed and enjoyed the open spaces. Lee and Theo have thought of everything, from beds bowls and balls. You might think my husband and I are strange we live not far from the coast and wanted a weekend away with our dogs. Well we were blown away by this beautiful property. I do say put this property on your bucket list and come met Lee and Theo for a stay at Knotsofar Cottage holiday home. Thank you Lee and Theo for a lovely stay.

This has to be one of the best properties we have stayed in. The house is immaculate and the furnishings tasteful. The owners are very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. My dog loved it too. We will definitely return.

Wow! What a terrific hide away, our friends from interstate and our 2 dogs had such a wonderfull time at "Knotsofar" Lee's attention to detail made our stay so special, very relaxing and beautiful full moon at night peaking over the silky oak tree enjoying a wine and a sing along to Lee's CD collection she has to enjoy. We can't wait to return!
