A light filled cottage perfect for couples or small families, this intimate and foliage filled retreat is situated on a private quarter acre only 1.5 hours from Brisbane. During summer spend your days by the pool, laze on the deck with a grazing platter and serve beautiful meals of local produce from the kitchen servery which opens out onto the backyard. In winter, watch the star-filled sky by the fire-pit or read a good book with a glass of wine and soak your cares away in the bath.

Set in the quaint country town of Palmwoods, this 1940s workers cottage is full of history and charm.

Full of vintage finds and unique salvaged decor, the house is an original QLD railway workers cottage built from hardwood which used to dominate the landscape in the local area.

Many of the cottages you see around the neighbourhood of the same era were set up to house the workers who constructed the railway line from Brisbane to Cairns.

Set in the quaint country town of Palmwoods, the train station at the end of the street takes you directly to Brisbane, or north to the famous Eumundi markets. Jump in the car and drive 10 minutes to Montville, 20 minutes to Maleny, Caloundra, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba & Coolum, and only 35 minutes to beautiful Noosa.

The cottage has a large yard (quarter acre) and a pool. We also have NBN wifi, Netflix and Stan. You will have the whole property to yourself. The property is suitable for couples and small families. We do not however provide cots, high chairs etc. Please bring these amenities yourself if needed.

PETS - Small dogs can stay upon request. Please list your dog as a guest when booking. Please note that the property is not suitable for multiple large dogs as the fenced garden area is quite small and mostly garden beds. Dogs are not to be left unattended at any time. Strictly no dogs in pool as it will ruin the PH and require major chemical treatment (at your expense). Please make sure your pets stay off the furniture by bringing your own bedding, blankets and throw rugs for your furry friend. Please ensure that you put all droppings in the wheelie bin upon your departure. We understand that accidents happen. If your pet goes to the loo inside, PLEASE LET US KNOW! That way we can target the area when cleaning. Thank you (-:
