Brighton/Sandgate is a grand historical Brisbane seaside suburb conveniently located just 15 minutes drive from Brisbane airport and 10 minutes from Boondall Entertainment Centre.

Our 3 bedroom quaint seaside cottage is a self contained duplex is overlooking Moreton Bay and surrounded by lovely gardens that offers a relaxing getaway for both short term to longer stays as required. A comfy queen bed with french doors that open onto the deck and overlook the bay is in the main bedroom. Bunk beds are in the second bedroom (consisting of a double and single) and the third bedroom 'the blue room' makes for a lovely reading room with single day bed. The homely living area comprises of lounge, dining and kitchen overlooking the bay.


Guests have private entry and exit into the home and there is ample street parking.

Whilst the property is its own home, we share a common wall. We lead busy lives raising our two children however we also are at home most evenings and on weekends. Our children are well behaved however from time to time will create some noise. If you are wanting absolute solitude and will be bothered by noise - this is perhaps not the most ideal choice. In saying that, we are most hospitable and love entertaining and look forward to welcoming you.


Kitesurfing is what brings the crowds when the wind is up and we are located opposite one of the most popular beaches for this activity. If it's a balmy day then Stand up Paddling (SUP) or kayaking in the bay might be more your thing.

The Queensland Cruising Yacht Club (QCYC) is located on Cabbage Tree Creek, Shorncliffe. QCYC has always been a popular destination for cruising and racing yachtsmen. The Clubhouse is set in a parkland like environment with views across Cabbage Tree Creek to Brisbane’s largest wetland environment reserve, the Boondall Wetlands and out to Moreton Bay. A short walk to the mouth of Cabbage Tree Creek, will afford spectacular views across beautiful Moreton Bay to Moreton Island.

Boondall Wetlands and Environmental Centre is where you can enjoy a spot of bird watching and a great place to ride to from The Beach Shack.

Along Flinders Pde foreshore we have 8 kilometres of walking and cycling pathway, where you can discover a variety of cafes, kids parks local swimming pool and end up at the historical Shorncliffe Pier which was built in 1872.

Wood fired pizza, Thai, Indian, IGA, baker, butcher and bottle shop are all a convenient 2 minute stroll away.


We are just a few minutes walk from the bus stop and a short drive to Sandgate train station where trains leave to the Brisbane Central frequently. Brisbane City is just 25 minutes on the train.

Australia Zoo and Underwater World are under an hours drive - heading North towards the Sunshine Coast. South bound - our famous theme parks 'Sea World, Dream World, Movie World and Wet n Wild will see you there in an hour's drive from our place.

Sunshine Coast is a 45 minute drive, and the Gold Coast (depending on where you are going) will be around 1 hour drive.

If you are arriving from the domestic or international airport, you will find all major car hire companies at both airports. The easiest way here is via a car or cab which is a short 15 minute drive away. You may also take the Airport Railway which links in with the Shorncliffe line (Sandgate is where you would hop off, then catch a cab to Brighton).

If the kitchen area is used it would have to be left in clean and tidy condition, for long stays guests may use washing machine and dryer for washing their linen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to stay Visiting Brisbane and this is a lovely place to stay. Was made to feel most welcome, like a friend catching up. Accommodation was lovely and is in a great location near to local shops and restaurants. Was a great place to base ourselves and go on some day trips to the Sunshine Coast and into the City. The best bit though is the view and having a glass of wine on an evening on the front porch whilst watching the kite surfers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great location and perfect for families My family and I stayed in Brighton Beach Shack after moving to Australia from the UK in September 2014. We’d been looking for somewhere that offered easy access to the northern suburbs as well as the city while we set up our new lives, found a house to rent, picked schools and bought cars etc. The house is in a fantastic location – it’s right opposite the beach, and just a short walk away from a great park. There are also shops and take aways in walking distance, which was perfect for us as we didn’t hire a car for the first couple of days. It was also close to Sandgate for more shops and the train station. It was an older style property with basic furnishings but the house had everything we needed in it and it was a great base as we explored the area. Brighton is a really lovely suburb and the house is in one of the best spots where you can watch the kite surfers while you eat your dinner. Tara and her family (who live in the adjoining house) were really welcoming. As we have three under fives we aren’t the quietest of neighbours, so it was lovely to find a house to rent where this wasn’t a problem as they have kids too. We were invited to use the garden and trampoline when we liked, which the kids loved. My three also enjoyed playing with Tara’s boys and their dog which took their minds off missing their friends back in the UK. We enjoyed some evenings chatting to Tara and Mick on the deck over coffee or a glass of wine as we tried to learn as much as we could about our new home. They were a great help with advice about schools and suburbs. On our second day there we were invited next door to join the family for some birthday cake, and we all ended up at the beach for a splash in the water afterwards. This was a turning point when my 4yo twins both told me they loved living in Australia and didn’t want to go back to the UK except for holidays. I’m so grateful to Tara for making us feel so welcome, as I’m sure this was the reason our kids settled into their new home so quickly. When we were searching for a rental we considered houses on Bribie Island that were a lot cheaper, but I’m so pleased we decided to rent this place instead. Bribie is so far away and we’d have spent so long driving backwards and forwards to the suburbs where we wanted to live and with three kids travelling is hard work. For us, Brighton was a perfect location for exploring. Also, having a family next door was a big support to us and that was so important after we’d just left all of our family and friends behind on the other side of the world. I’m so pleased we chose Brighton Beach Shack!
