New Life Cottage is a lovely little three-bedroom house, all on one level see photos below. With a brand new kitchen with all the modern ammenities, polished floorboards and newly painted, it has a really cosy feel. Situated just 4.5 km from the city, it is close to the CBD and has great public transport access.

All our properties are fully functional houses with a full kitchen. They are all within 4.5 km from the Brisbane city centre and all are immediately adjacent to a bus stop directly to the city. The internet facility is free of charge however the supply is not guaranteed. The property is equipped with a washing machine in a shared laundry. All properties are close to supermarkets and if it is a coffee that you are after, all of our properties are within walking distance to one or more coffee shops.

Ithaca Creek is around the corner and along this creek there is a walkway/bikeway that goes all the way to the city in one direction and is 30 minutes by foot into the bush and forest walks of Mount Cootha in the other direction.

History and internal layout

New Life Cottage owes it's name to the fact that the house was an old maternity hospital dating back to 1890, and was picked up and moved on a truck from the nearby suburb of St Johns Wood to it's present location. It is also located on a road which is a sacred Aboriginal path to Mount Cootha - called the place of the Honeybee Dreaming. So lots of history.

Accommodation is as follows:

1 Queen bed in the main bedroom

2 Queen bed in bedroom 2

3 Single beds in bedroom 3 plus trundle bed if necessary

4 Port-a-cot available free of charge for those with a little one on request

All three bedrooms radiate out from the large living room with adjacent dining area.

New Life Cottage is one of two side-by-side semi-detached houses. Hope House is the other and they share a common internal wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from overpriced to compatable properties Gardens overgrown, not family friendly, utensils hap hazard, cutlery rusted, showering system poor. The owner talked about affordable for families, it was more of how little I spend on the property while maximizing the price. Not recommended, unless improvements are made. Stayed at a number of different properties during our holiday which were far superior and better priced

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Absolute perfect - home away from home"We choose New Life Cottage located in Ashgrove, Brisbane as it was on the North Side and from what we had been told meant quicker trip times into the heart of the CBD. Well it provided this and so much more.First and foremost the biggest factor that drew us to this property was its price - at first I was a bit skeptical as it seemed almost too good to be true however I can honestly say that it was the best money I have ever spent on accommodation and have spent a lot more for a place to stay and have received a lot less than what this property gave us.The house itself is fully self contained and has everything that one would require for their trip away.It has 3 sizeable bedrooms and my family instantly felt at home.We were able to cook all our meals in their fantastic facilities and washing our clothes was a breeze in their super easy to use washing machine and dryer.It had ample parking for our large 4x4 plus trailer and the court yard was just perfect for our three little children to play in.The supermarket was barely a 3 minute drive and the ashgrove shops were all but a 2 minute stroll which we did easily with our 3 children (1 who is 18 months old).The owners were so very lovely - ensuring that we were well looked after in every way possible and even had a portable cot set up and ready to go for our baby son as they knew we would be arriving late and that this would make life so much easier.This was our first stay in Brisbane and it won't be our last and I won't hesitate in re-booking New Life Cottage next time we come up to visit.It's the perfect home away from home!!!
