Looking for something a little different instead of one of the hundreds of high-rise apartments on the Gold Coast? Frangipani Cottage is a 1 bedroom house set within our 1 1/2 acre property in the beautiful Tallebudgera Valley (12 mins to Burleigh).
All about the cottage -
Bedroom - It's not huge but it has a queen size bed and storage for bags and clothes. There is also a sofa bed in the living area which would be perfect for 1 or 2 small children. We are happy to have infants but you'll need to bring your own portable cot/bedding. Unfortunately we gave ours away years ago. Linen is provided for both the queen and sofa beds.
Living area - It has a comfortable lounge/sofa bed, coffee table, TV and DVD, and dining table. The kitchenette is stocked with basic items and includes a Nespresso coffee machine (and pods), microwave, toaster and bar fridge.
Bathroom - Not much to say about this really. It's about as bathroom-like as they come......toilet, sink, shower.....you know the drill. It's nice and roomy though for those that like to swing their towels around.
Outdoors - There are front and rear decks with a small chair and tables on each. If you sit out the front, you can watch the chickens being chased by our puppy. If you sit out the back, you can watch the sheep being chased by our puppy.
Pets - Being pet owners ourselves, we are definitely pet friendly. Pets are $10 extra per pet per night. (Maximum 2 pets) If you wish to bring your pet, just pop them in as an extra person in the booking and let us know so we can be prepared. Our yard is fenced but be aware they'll be sharing it with our puppy (who loves ALL dogs) when he's out and about, so if your pet doesn't get along with dogs or can't handle being hassled by a very excitable puppy, please take this into consideration prior to booking. If we feel your dog is a threat to our dog, we will ask you to keep it indoors while our dog is in the yard. Pets are quite welcome in the cottage but we ask that they not sleep on the bed or sit on the lounge. They are also not to be left on the property in your absence.
Extras - Feel free to use our pool and spa and also our outdoor entertaining area with BBQ if you wish.
We have BBQ and Breakfast hampers available for purchase. 24 hours notice is required.
You have access to all the outdoor areas of our property, so you have plenty of space if you need it. While there's no washing machine in the cottage, if you'd like to do some washing during your stay, we're happy to help you out for a small donation.
We come and go and will interact with you as often or as little as you wish. If you would like total privacy, just say the word and we'll pretend you're not even there. :)
Tallebudgera Valley is a beautiful, virtually untouched piece of paradise in the Gold Coast Hinterland. It's a little bit of country close to the city. We're only 12 minutes to Burleigh Heads and Palm Beach, 20 mins from Gold Coast airport and 1 hr 10 mins from Brisbane Airport. Our local shops are a 4 minute drive down the road with a grocery store, fish and chip shop, bakery, bottle shop, cafe, vet, hairdresser and pizza restaurant. There are plenty of lovely drives that start close to the valley and also 3 golf courses within a 5 minute drive.
There is no nearby public transport, so you'll need your own transport. If you require a lift somewhere, have a chat to us and we'll work something out. There is off-street parking.
Other Things to Note
At this stage, the cottage doesn't have internet but we're working on it. You do have wi-fi access on our back deck though, so you're welcome to use it if needed. Mobile phone reception is also pretty dodgy depending on which carrier you're with, how tall you are, which way the wind is blowing and what you had for breakfast. Take that into consideration when booking.
Since our accommodation is very reasonably priced and we don't charge a cleaning fee, we do ask that you leave everything as you found it. If you could wash any dishes you've used and pop them away that would be great and if you've got time, give the floors a sweep/vacuum.
We live in a pretty quiet area, so we do ask that there's no loud noise/music after 10pm.
We also have a no smoking policy in the cottage, however smoking is permitted on the back deck if you're desperate.
