Pet friendly Paradise Cottage is situated on the border of Brighton and Sandgate, in north east Brisbane's bayside - close to the Gateway Arterial and 10 kms from the airport so an hour's drive either way to the Gold Coast or to the Sunshine Coast. 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. Sandgate village with its railway station, restaurants, and shops is a 15 - 20 min walk. If you don't want to walk take the bus as the bus stop which is 200 m from the cottage. This bus can also take you into the CBD as it continues onto Toombus bus interchange. Within 500 m and either side of the cottage is Generations coffee shop and also Wes Coffee has a hearty breakfast. To walk that dog or for a childrens play area, walk up the street 50 m to Peace Park that borders the Third Lagoon at the top of the street. With its convenient location to Sandgate village, Paradise Cottage (and its sister cottage Happiness Cottage) is eminently placed for holiday accommodation and for short term relocations. We have many repeat UK visitors who arrive for 3 - 6 weeks every year so book early if you are thinking of a longer break.

"Wonderful Pet friendly Cottage" We stayed in Paradise Cottage for 4 weeks with our 3 year old kelpie and 17 year old cat. It was the perfect place for us all to find our feet after relocating to Brisbane from Melbourne. The Cottage has everything you could need and the outside area is perfect for fur babies. It is well fenced and we didn't have to worry about letting the dog out. Even our cat had a good wander around. Helen and Glen are wonderful hosts that give you privacy and space to enjoy your holiday but are available via messaging if anything is needed. They are very accommodating and go above and beyond to make your stay as wonderful as possible. We highly recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a pet friendly place to stay.



Fantastic location, very safe for pets. Excellent hosts. We will return.



Paradise Cottage is a great choice for those wishing to stay in the Sandgate area or proximate to the inner north of Brisbane. We stayed for three nights and the communication with Helen through all stages of the process was faultless. Helen was a thoughtful host, even going so far as to organise a portacot for our daughter in the lead up to our stay. The cottage is a good size and feels very private thanks to the very nice landscaping. Great location, a short drive to Sandgate village and the (lovely) Brighton/Sandgate/Shorncliffe foreshore. Would definitely stay again next time we're in Brisbane.



Lovey area cute house clean and looked after well. Dogs loved it to.



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. My 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.
