About the property

2 bedroom/2 bath self-contained cottage. 5 min drive to Pottsville Beach.


Surrounded by rolling hills, forests and deep blue sky, this gorgeous architecturally designed cottage offers a secluded oasis in the foothills behind Mooball National Park. Not only are the sunsets perfectly reflected in the beautiful dam on the property, but the resident chickens will ensure that their gentle clucking will welcome in the morning light.

Only a short drive from Byron Bay and Coolongatta Airport, Mango Tree Cottage is perfectly positioned for couples or families looking for a relaxing mini-break with a difference. The two well-positioned bedrooms both feature impressive views over the gently rolling hills, while the adjoining sunroom’s convertible sofa bed can accommodate two more guests, making this a convenient option for large families or groups. The master bedroom includes an adjoining ensuite, with toiletries supplied, features a freestanding claw-foot bath, surrounded by windows and an incredible view of the surrounding trees.

The undisputed centre of the home is the open plan kitchen and living space, complete with a freestanding slow-burning wood fireplace for the cooler months. The fully equipped kitchen has a country inspired wooden island bench that includes a breakfast bar, and a sealed cement floor throughout that’s perfect for pets. Evenings can be spent on the covered deck watching the sunset, cooking on the large barbeque or reading in the comfortable couches.

The property boasts large grassy areas for children and pets to run around, and apart from the chook pen, you’ll also share the extensive open grounds with two friendly Huacaya breed alpacas, named Billy and Emmy.

The cottage is a fully furnished self contained Pottsville holiday accommodation boasting 2 bedrooms plus sunroom with sofabed (for extra guests) that is 5 mins from Pottsville Beach, 10 mins to Cabarita Beach, 25 mins to Byron Bay, 20 mins to Coolangatta Airport, 1 hour to Sea World, Dream World, 1.5 hours from Brisbane.

We are kids (portacot & high chair booster seat available on request), pet (fenced-in area available) and wheelchair friendly!

Sleeps 6 comfortably.

Come and experience it for yourself!


Bedroom 1: Queen Bed

Bedroom 2: 2 King Singles which can be converted to King bed

Sunroom: Queen Sofabed


The entire deck which measures 50 sq mtrs is enclosed for the protection of all pets. Pets are welcomed to sleep on the deck or inside the cottage; however, they are not allowed on furniture or beds. There is also a sizeable lawn area next to the cottage where pets can run around and frolick on. In addition, there are multiple pet friendly areas/beaches just 7 min drive from the cottage. No bond required. THERE IS A PER PET CHARGE OF $30 FOR EACH PET. This can be paid in cash upon arrival. Please note: our chickens are housed in their own enclosed chook pen, so this shouldn't be a worry for pet owners.

Check-out: 10:00am

The cottage is designed for entertaining and we encourage guests to relax and enjoy themselves with friends and family. However it's not a party house and any plans for events with more than those staying need to be discussed with the hosts.


Pottsville is a hidden gem on the Tweed Coast of New South Wales with Byron Bay, Coolangatta and world heritage rainforest so close by. It's that great combination of rural and coastal but with city life so accessible.

There are a bounty of restaurants in Pottsville town including Indian, Thai, Chinese, Fish and Chip, Bakery (almond croissants are mouthwatering) as well as two new restaurants which recently opened, Mis Amigos Mexican and Izakaya Potts, which can easily be awarded the title “the best Japanese in town”! IGA, Chemist, Video Shop, News-Agency, and cafes as well.

Why Denise and Glenn chose Cudgera Creek

We love this property because it evokes a sense of peacefulness and tranquillity -- to hear the birds chirping in the morning and to see the trees blowing in the wind -- beautiful to the eyes and ears!

What makes this cottage unique

The views from the deck is outstanding! Many guests have commented that they could stay at the cottage forever and just take in those mountain views. The view from the claw-foot bath is equally awesome!

Gorgeous Little Country Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our mini break at Mango Tree Cottage. It's pet friendly, gorgeously styled and set at the back of the property so is very quiet except for the odd cow moo. The huge fenced in deck was fantastic for the dogs, and they loved sunning themselves in the morning. The cottage has a BBQ, fireplace and a clawfoot bath, all major bonuses in the cooler weather!

Only 5mins drive into Pottsville, 20min to Brunswick Heads etc. It's really well situated with access to human and pet friendly beaches and country drives to the west. We loved the cottage and will definitely stay again.

Perfect rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

Mango Tree Cottage proved to be a most comfortable and relaxing venue for our sister's getaway. We enjoyed the pretty rural views and the Cottage is central to many places of interest in the Tweed Coast region. A highlight of our stay was lying back in the beautiful bathtub and watching the clouds drift across the sky. Denise was very welcoming when we arrived but then just left us to enjoy the surrounds and each other's company. We would certainly consider returning to Mango Tree Cottage sometime in the near future and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family.

What a hidden pleasure we discovered in the rolling scenery if Pottsville Beach. It exceeded our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Close enough to enjoy Byron bay and its surrounds but peaceful and comfortable in every way. Thank you Denise and Glenn.

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Mango Tree Cottage. Such a beautiful house in the most peaceful and gorgeous setting. None of us wanted to go home. Our two dogs loved the deck and the paddock, and we had the best walks on the empty Pottsville beaches. We will definitely be back! Thank you Denise and Glenn for a perfect holiday!

Secluded gem!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were taken by the view of the lush landscape that photos do not do justice. The cottage is full of charm and character with all the facilities you will need. Our dog Ari loved the open spaces and the huge deck to watch the horses and cows. It was a quick drive for my husband to go fishing also. In two minds on whether to tell too many people about it because we want to be able to come back! A great place!
