Helen McKeering purchased this House in 2016
Why Helen McKeering chose Brisbane City
This cottage was built especially for us in a factory and came in on a truck as a sister to our Paradise Cottage. We designed it around the giant liquid amber tree - a smoother more sophisticated cottage in contrast to our boho Paradise.
What makes this House unique
Whole house and separate yard with high fencing for your pets. Deck has a gate to contain pets upstairs as well. Doggie door. Quiet neighbourhood - private and serene.

Instead of the Happiness Cottage, we stayed in the Paradise Cottage. It was spacious, comfortable and well provided for. Our fur children enjoyed roaming around. Helen and Glen were very friendly, helpful and considerate hosts.
Thank you for being such pleasant guests...and accommodating the change of cottage.
Cozy and Dog Friendly
i stayed at happiness cottage for 3 weeks and brought my 2 large dogs along. We were very cosy there, and Helen was the perfect hostess, making sure we had everything we needed. If we’re ever back in the area, we will definitely be staying there again.
Excellent in terms of design, cleanliness, comfort, owner assistance and location.
The property is perfect for pets with its enclosed yard, sheltered deck, dog door and polished floor boards. It has the spacious, upmarket feel of five star accommodation. The attention to detail is awesome including rugs and bowls for pets, air-conditioning and fans, plentiful off street parking, privacy and quiet. Its in a great location close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. The tropical garden is lovely and there is a barbecue on the deck. The owner is extremely helpful. This is my second stay and I hope to return.
Andrea thank you. You are most welcome and thank you for the extensive review. These reviews really do help people searching for a quiet well appointed cottage in a safe area.
Had everything we needed for a short stay, loved the layout and great deck area. Appreciated being able to bring our dog too - not enough accomodation that allows them inside.
Rebecca - thank you. Yes we started off pets allowed inside cottages with Paradise Cottage almost 8 years ago - the appreciation of our guests and we knowing their dogs are safe and comfortable keeps us keeping on. We support Karma Pet Rescue with spare change tins in all cottages. KPR takes in dogs (and cats) from rural pounds esp those in danger of being put down - and fosters them with good carers until they are rehabilitated ready for adoption.
This is an amazing property, very clean and welcoming. However there is only one bed (Queen size) which is great if you are traveling by yourself or as part of a couple. But if you are traveling with someone else then one of you has to sleep on the lounge. The place is beautifully appointed and the bathroom is amazing and spacious. There are heaps of places to eat near by. I would recommend this place and I would stay there again. The pet door in the wall is a good thought and works wonders if you have a small dog. The huge porch is an amazing place to sit and relax.
Hi Gavin - thanks for your review. Yes the cottage is more for singles and couples (who sleep together) as the bed is a king. The sofa is very comfortable and suitable for a day or two.
Very pet friendly
All 3 of us had a wonderful time at Happiness Cottage
Great to hear Jill. Come again and remind me you are a returning guest for returning guest discount.
