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 inside both cottages on the tiled areas but not in the bedrooms.
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 game of swing ball is set up outside for children ( or adults still in their childhood).
We have a horse paddock which is now used as a wonderful exercise area for dogs as our very old family horse recently passed away. The loss of our horse was too sad to replace him with another one and he would be happy to see dogs enjoying his paddock.
Dogs can run for hours on our land and there are plenty of grassed areas for going to the toilet. Our only request is they are fully supervised when out on the land. 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 Yahoo!.
We have an outside small courtyard which is fully fenced if you would like to leave your dog behind while you explore the many tourist attractions on The Coast. As we also live on the property with our 2 dogs, in our own cottage, we are available, by prior arrangement, to keep an eye on 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolutely lovely place We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "Not so far pet friendly cottage". The cottage it's self was clean and comfortable with excellent amenities for my husband, myself, our 10 month old baby and our dog. The location is beautiful and the cafes and beach are not too far away. Will hopefully be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable stay! Thank you Lee & Theo for a very comfortable and welcoming stay. A lovely, clean and well thought out cottage with so many goodies left for us to enjoy and mandarine's straight from the tree very appreciated! Great to be able to stay so close to the coast but to be able to get away from the busy coast after visiting and come back to a property with a bit of space and peace and quiet! Highly recommend this property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Retreat from the World A lovely welcome by owner Lee, a really delightful cottage for our stay with everything we required for a bit of r & r. Everything lovely, fresh and clean. even a stocked fridge and basket of goodies. The setting is magic, I enjoyed watching the sunrise each morning, just bliss !! We enjoyed the pool and our little dog was very happy ... even had his own room. Can highly reommend as one of the best rental accommodations I have been to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful location and close to everything! We had a lovely stay at Knotsofar Cottage (2 Bedroom), it's close to everything but secluded enough to give you a perfect escape. We were made to feel very welcome and it was a great short break. Our beautiful doggies enjoyed their time inside the cottage, which was really well set up for them, however there is no adequate fencing outside for dogs, unless your dog is able to go completely off leash (and come back when called), there is no area for the dogs to play outside which was a bit of let down seeing how big and beautiful the property is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bliss! We are a family of four with two young children under two and this house was perfect! Lee was so lovely and helpful suggesting where to eat, local markets, wild life parks etc. the house has absolutely everything and I mean everything! Literally all you need is you're clothes. Lee even gives you a lovely gift basket with wine and chocolates and basic food shop so you don't have to go anywhere (as we got in later we didn't have to worry and our breakfast was sorted for eggs on toast with gourgous organic avacdo from the hide away cafe just down the road- delicious!) The wild life is amazing and it's so nice to sit out front during sunset listening to the kookabarras. its perfect location with surrounding forest is so bliss! Yet it is only short trips to all main attractions, wild life parks, shopping centre etc which is perfect if you're travelling with kids! The only thing I have negative which isn't even, was the smell of the septic tank on occasion, however it was never for long! Lee is so genuenley lovely and hosting. We are up the Sunshine Coast now and we miss it down there terribly so peaceful. Big Thanks to Lee for being so gracious, recommending this to our families and friends!
