Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 4 nights


About the property

Pet friendly Paradise Cottage is situated on the border of Brighton and Sandgate, in north east Brisbane's bayside - close to the motorways to the Gold Coast and to the Sunshine Coast, and Sandgate railway station. The cottage has unlimited free wifi making it ideal for an office away from home or for a holiday. The cottage is surrounded by tropical palms and plants and offers a relaxing secure hideaway that is 1km walking distance to the Sandgate/Brighton foreshore and the famous Sandgate lagoons. The cottage has free wi-fi, and street bikes for an active healthy holiday stay. Sandgate village with its restaurants and shops is a 15 - 20 min walk. Closer to home, the bus stop is 200 m from the cottage And this bus takes you to Sandgate village, Sandgate railway Station or further into town to Toombul bus interchange where you can catch another bus to the CBD. Closeby is Generations coffee shop and also Wes' for a great breakfast. Bernard street is 50 m to a wonderful park, that borders the Third Lagoon, at the top of the street. With its convenient location to Sandgate village, Paradise Cottage is eminently placed for holiday accommodation and for short term relocations. If Paradise Cottage is not available on the dates you want, try our new one bedroom cottage on the same grounds, Happiness Cottage (also on Stayz) - and separated from Paradise Cottage by gardens and a carport.

The Cottage

Paradise Cottage is a renovated builder's workshop, with a distinctive steep tiled red roof, that has been extensively planted with delightful aromatic gardens. The cottage has 2 covered outside deck areas. The ambiance is environmentally tranquil yet with all modern conveniences.

There are 2 bedrooms - a queen bedroom and a double bedroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen and laundry including ironing facilities. The living area has a flat screen 50" TV and DVD player. Dining can be inside or out on the deck with BBQ facilities.


We adore pets and believe in taking pets on holiday. Paradise Cottage has secure fencing and an interesting garden for your pet to explore. Pets are allowed indoors and there is a doggie door from the patio to the dining area. This is an upmarket pet friendly cottage so all covers are washed after each guest and the cottage is kept beautifully clean.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I came accross these pet friendly cottages when our renovation work went overtime and I needed to find some urgent pet friendly accomodation for our family. The cottages are popular and quite heavily booked but We took up what vacancy they had which meant we stayed 2 nights in paradise and then 4 nights in happiness cottage. So we were lucky to try both. Our labrador liked exploring the gardens in both cottages. They are both fenced and pets are welcome indoors. The 2 bedroom Paradise cottage is bigger but has older charm. Happiness is new with modern comforts but only 1 bedroom. Even still it fitted 4 of us comfortably. 2 kids slept on the couch and there is a king bed in the bedroom. Kitchen was very well stocked with utensils pots and pans and it has a lovely deck to enjoy also. My only suggestion is to maybe make the blue gate a bit more secure. I felt like it could could be too easily opened and adventurous dogs may escape. But Overall it was a lovely stay and Helen and Glenn went out of their way to make sure our stay was very comfortable. It was perfect for what we needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nikki. It is rare to have someone stay in both cottages and be able to compare and contrast the new one bedroom with the older 2 bedroom home. Thank for the tip about the blue gate. Hope you try our Mudjimba Beach House one day for a holiday and 10% off the advertised price for you as a returning visitor even in peak times.

Owner's Response: Cynthia it was lovely to host you while you were waiting for your new home. When you need a Sunshine Coast holiday try my beach cottage in Mudjimba: Mudjimba Cottage. Pets allowed inside of course. Such a pet friendly area like Brighton.

Absolutely Brilliant Pet Friendly Accommodation. Could not fault anything. My Wife, our little doggie and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wished we could have stayed longer.
