We would love you to stay in our delightful Pet Friendly, Bush Setting cottage, situated only 10 minutes from all the lively activities of the wonderful Gold Coast. Whether you are seeking a comfortable family holiday with pets included or just a relaxing, peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle, you will find both here.
Our cottage is a 3 bedroom fully self contained house with tiled floors throughout the main living areas which enables your dog to live easily inside with you. (We can also accommodate for extended guests in our gorgeous 1 bdrm fully self contained cottage only 20 metres away. We also offer this as seperate accommodation if you only require 1 bedroom. This is fully fenced for a dog who likes to wander.) Dogs are welcome in both cottages on the carpeted bedrooms but only on his own bedding.
The main living area is open plan with two seperate lounges, a six seating dining table, a huge very usable kitchen with a buffet and three bar stools. ( Great for a chat during cooking time)
The master bedroom consists of a queensize bed and an ensuite. The double bedroom has two single beds and the single bedroom has one single bed. All bedrooms have ceiling fans.

Outdoor Facilities

There is plenty of outdoor seating which overlooks the swimming pool and has spectacular Valley views. You would be amazed at the rising of the moon over the hills.
There is a flat concreted area for children to ride their bikes on plus flat grassed areas to play on. A full sized round trampoline is also here for older children ( or adults still in their childhood).
We have a horse paddock with a very old friendly horse in it who has been in our family for years. He loves a stroke from animal lovers.
Dogs can run for hours on our land and there are plenty of grassed areas for going to the toilet. We just ask that you pick up their droppings and place them over the bank where nature attends to the rest. No plastic pooh bags required here!
We have an area outside which is fully fenced if you would like to leave your dog behind while you explore the many tourist attractions who may not allow dogs. As we also live on the property with our 2 dogs, in our own cottage, we are available, by prior arrangement, to mind your dog while you are away for the day. Our previous guests have loved having this option and have always returned to a happy dog.


Our guests can not believe how close our cottage is to everything but yet feels as if you are miles away from civilization.

knotsofar Cottage is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful location and fantastic property! We stayed at Knotsofar cottage with our family of 5 and my Mum visiting from the UK. We wanted somewhere within easy reach of the beach but away from the busy loud coastal areas. Knotsofar cottage was perfect. Lee greeted us on arrival and made sure we had everything we needed for a great stay. She provided much more than is usual in a holiday rental. For example the fridge was stocked with 2L of milk and a loaf of bread, the cupboards had more than you would expect too. Our children had space to run round and we made good use of the swimming pool. There is a huge amount of internal space too, very important if it rains! The beach only seemed to be about a 10 minute drive on quiet roads. We loved our stay and will be returning soon. Neal

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of Both Worlds We would recommend this accommodation to anyone that loves peace and quiet and also spend time with their dogs. Lee and Theo were very hospitable, friendly and welcoming, we loved chatting to them about their place and dogs. It wasn’t far at all to the bustle of gold coast and we appreciate the tips of where to take our dog. We couldn’t stop raving on about this accommodation to family and friends. Not only has it got beautiful surroundings, waking up to gorgeous view and birds; it was the small things in this house that also made it beautiful. The little areas where you could sit and read or have time to yourself, it had nice smell, chocolates on the bed and good books. Mostly we were impressed with how clean it was, sparkling and fresh. If our dog could review, he would say he had the best holiday! Thank you Lee and Theo we can’t wait to come back up. Emily and Chris

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a wonderful property to stay on. We were there for 8 nights having just relocated back to Australia from Nelson NZ and were so happy to be able to have our 2 beloved pets stay with us after the stress of flying. A superbly cared for property with every possible comfort provided for the guests. A magic little piece of paradise. Lee & Theo you are wonderful hosts and we would recommend your property to all potential future guests.
