Overview

About the property

So very private for a memorable getaway or relocation with or without your pets. The cottage is a new build, light filled and cool with huge sliding doors and screens opening up onto a breezy north facing deck and aromatic tropical gardens. The cottage has every convenience, and is fully equipped with kitchen utensils, appliances, linen, laundry and air conditioning. Guest have access to free wifi; a 42 inch TV and DVD; free unlimited wifi, and an undercover carpark.

The cottage has one bedroom with a king sized bed and a beautiful spacious bathroom with stone tiles. Even if staying up to six months, electricity is free.

We welcome pets and as pet owners, we believe in taking pets on holidays. Your pets will adore the garden for foraging and exploring and are welcome inside as the floors are timber. There is a pet door and fencing is very secure. The area has 2 dog parks in the area (which you would drive to) and Council also allows leashed walking of dogs on the beachfront and at nearby Peace Park at the top of the street. This is an upmarket quality property and is kept beautifully clean and well presented for pets and their humans.

The cottage is in a very safe neighbourhood. The street is a quiet street hiding gorgeous tranquil Brighton Cottages: Happiness Cottage and the two bedroom Paradise Cottage! Both cottages are quite separate and privately situated from one another.

Our Paradise Cottage Brighton (the two bedroom cottage) has reviews on Stayz if you would like to check out our high standards. Happiness Cottage is also available for holidays and 1 - 6 month relocations. These Brighton cottages are the perfect place to begin your search for a longer term rental/lease in north Brisbane if you are relocating.

Relax and enjoy. If Happiness Cottage is not available for the dates you require, try Paradise Cottage (on Stayz) on the same property but separated by gardens and its own carport.

Guest Access

Our street is 1km from the beachfront and also 200m to Peace Park surrounding the Third Lagoon and its bikeways and walks. There are restaurants, coffee shops and fish n chips shops in the nearby Sandgate Village centre and a lovely 3km walking/biking track along the Shorncliffe/ Sandgate/ Brighton beachfront (Flinders Parade).

Interaction with Guests

We meet out guests where possible and if you are new to the area or to Australia we will be a phone call away for advice on supermarkets, restaurants, medical and transport issues.

The Neighbourhood

Brighton has a seaside village atmosphere with an emphasis on nature and serenity. However, it is close to the M1 (motorway) entrance which gives you easy access to the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast and to the city.

Getting around

The train is 20min walk away at Sandgate Station. If you don't want to walk catch the bus 200m closeby in the next street. This bus also takes you further to the Toombul Bus interchange where you catch another to the city.

Other Things to Note

The Sandgate Brighton Shorncliffe area is one of the oldest areas of Brisbane as it was once THE holiday destination before the Gold Coast and Sunshine coast were developed. As a result, there remain some lovely stately old homes along the waterfront which in their heyday were upmarket boarding house in the 1800s. The old post office and town hall on the main roundabout in the village centre have been restored and are usually open to view.

Try our other pet friendly cottages:

For a Sunshine Coast holiday try Mudjimba Beach House. Google Stazy 190782 as there are 2 with the same name. Can take up to 6 people but still cosy for a couple.

If you are travelling up north and need to stop after a 8 hour journey, Try Riverside Cottage South Rockhampton. Glorious view of the Fitzroy River . Google Stayz 187805

All we needed

  • 4 of 5

Happiness Cottage Suited the purpose of a couple and small dog very well. The deck was great and the tropical garden added to the atmosphere. As the steps up to the deck are quite steep, a hand rail is required. Our stay was enjoyable, the owner Glen came to make sure everything was ok. we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Jane yes a handrail is a good idea and we will install one in the future. The steps are the standard gradiant but some may find they need the extra assistance of a handrail. Next time try Paradise Cottage (the 2 bedroom cottage at the back) as there is only 2 steps into the cottage and I will do a special deal for you as a returning guest. Thank you for your review!

Truly a 'Happiness Cottage' ..

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the other reviews from people who have enjoyed their stay as much as we did, what more could we say about our lovely stay at the cottage.

The days were beautiful and sunny, the mornings almost frosty, and then the sun would rise over the patio pouring warming sunlight into the lounge.

A lovely way to start the day after sleeping in the most comfortable of beds.

How beautiful is that!

We were within walking distance of our aging aunt and uncle so location perfect.

Our stay was much too short.

It will certainly be our place for future visits.

Owner's Response: Rose it is a restful cottage isn't it? And so close to Regis Aged Care (formerly the Masonic Home) - just a block away. Please put in a reminder when you book next for "returning guests"" so I can offer you best price.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The minute we walked in we knew we were going to love staying here. Highlight was the deck where we spent most of our time. Lovely, private garden with lots of interesting smells according to Max. Gorgeous bathroom with great water pressure. We just loved it and will be back - hopefully longer next time.

Owner's Response: Sharron thank you for your review. Yes all dogs, large or small, love sitting on that secure deck looking out on the garden in that northern sunlight in winter. And the couch on the deck for adults is great for a midday snooze. I have had a few there myself! Come again and remind me when booking that you are a returning guest.

Beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfectly set up for the three of us ( my husband, myself and our dog) to catch up with family and friends living in Brisbane for three weeks. So close to the M1 and M3, beaches and bike paths. We enjoyed the sunny deck in the morning, the walks around the Peace Park, Lagoons and foreshore. The kitchen and laundry supplies were thoughtful and it was a real home away from home.
