About Helen McKeering
Glenn and I love our dogs and cats and aim to provide pet owners with lovely relaxed secure clean cottages near the beach or rivers to take your pets on holidays. We have been providing pet friendly (pets allowed inside) accommodation for 7 years with lovely budget cottages all near the sea or river. See Paradise Cottage and Happiness Cottage in Brighton and Riverside Cottage in Rockhampton.
Helen McKeering purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Helen McKeering chose Mudjimba Beach
This property is gorgeous in winter with the lovely northern sun coming into to the living area and bedroom. Cool in summer with windows on all sides, cool overhanding trees on the west and a great treed outside area that is larger than it looks in the photos (say my guests). fans and airconditioned as well. This cottage has many return visitors. Short walk to the beach and cafes with your dog.
What makes this Cottage unique
Budget priced clean and oh so great for your pets: tiled floors inside and outside gardens to sniff about in. High secure fences and gate. No dogs walking past as its at the back of the property and separated from Mudjimba Beach House.

A beach reprieve
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mudjimba Cottage. Perfect for a couple and their loved pet.
A comfortable place to live in and with access to great food, service and a dog friendly beach!
Cute Beach Shack
Fantastic quiet location, perfect for the furry friend. Close to beach, shops and easy access to local coastal villages. Perfect for a relaxing break and larger than it looks.
Quite lovely but cleaning expectations were not well received.
Whilst there was a lot to like about the property, I was most disappointed and somewhat insulted to have been charged a cleaning fee but still be provided with written guidelines in the cottage expecting me to take the sheets off the bed and put them and the other linen/towels into the washing machine and wash them, ready for the cleaner to just dry them. Additionally I was advised to kindly vacuum the property before leaving. I believed those requests would have been accounted for in my 'pre-paid cleaning fee'.
As my little dog is a Cavoodle, non- shedder and I had taken my own covers for furniture due to the wet weather, this seemed highly inappropriate. The owners were lovely but this cleaning issue did influence my overall experience negatively.
Guests need to read the instructions we send when they book. The guest phoned to ask for the address and where to access the key, having alreadyarrived in Mudjimba so it was obvious that the information sent was not opened.
The original message from me to guests when they book contains loads of information .about the cottage and Mudjimba, including access to the property, parking etc and where to find door keys.
Reading the information when you book and before you arrive is very important to prevent misunderstandings. We want guests and their pets to have a great time!
Additonally, our lovely guests get a 5 star good communication rating when we review their stay, by bringing up these issues during their stay rather than after leaving... when we have no chance to recity any issues.
In this instance, for example, we could have advised that if the guest did not want to vacuum after their pet, or put the washing in the machine (and press the start button,) that would be fine (sometimes guest do ask to be excused if they have mobility problems). Guests can offer an extra $30 if the cleaner would be required for another hour (stripping bed, loading waiting for the machine to finsish and doing a doublle vacccum if there are pets) and that would have been no problem at all. Hope this helps future guests!
Lovely accommodation close to the beach and other Sunshine Coast attractions. I loved it, kids loved it, but most importantly the dog loved it!
