Happiness Cottage Pets Allowed Inside and 1km Walk to Beach

Adults-only holiday home in Brisbane
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, dish washer, air conditioning. Guest have access to free wifi; a 42 inch TV and DVD; free unlimited wifi, and an undercover carpark. There is also a rmap for easy access as well as stairs.The cottage has one bedroom with a queen 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) is next door and completely separate - with its own entry driveway and fencing.... trees and carport keep you out of sight. 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 AccessOur 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 GuestsWe 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 NeighbourhoodBrighton 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 aroundThe 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 NoteThe 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. We also have Mudjimba Cottage - suitable for a couple. Both pets allowed inside.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

Absolute Paradise
Perfect place to stay while we relocated to Brisbane. Helen was always available and helpful. We loved the area so much we have bought a house nearby and are staying in the area. 😊😊😊

4/5 Good

Lovely little getaway!
Thanks so much for a great little getaway! I love travelling with my dog and it’s always so nice to stay at a lovely accommodation like yours! The place is clean and tidy with space for me to relax. It’s walking distance from the beach and local shops. I loved seeing the ginger cat as it make me feel less homesick for my own kitty cat. The owner was contactable through text and was respectful to my space. Mando and I will be back if only for a short break we enjoyed our time there so much!

4/5 Good

Comfortable stay
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.

5/5 Excellent

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.

5/5 Excellent

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.
