The Brighton/Sandgate/Shorncliffe area's is a stunning sea-side location. We love the laid back feel here, and the beautiful community of people just make it. You’ll also find at Sandgate Village, quirky, boutique, organic & fair trade shopping. Of a morning if you walk along the waterfront, you will see personal training groups, yoga and pilates classes taking place in the many parks. Sandgate Parkrun is on every Saturday morning at 7am along Flinders Pde.

The Kite Shed is just an easy 2 minute stroll from the local shops which include an IGA minimart, pharmacy, bottle shop, post office, bakery, cafes and restaurants. We are ideally situated 7 minutes drive from the Brisbane Entertainment Centre at Boondall.

There is a bus service 2 minute walk away at the local IGA, along with a train station which is situated at Sandgate. Trains leave approximately every half hour into Brisbane. If you don't have a vehicle - uber or a local cabs are the way to go.

Interaction with guests

The Kite Shed is situated a few metres from the main house. We live in the main house within the property so we are on site most of the time. We are happy to give as much help and advice as you require but equally happy to leave you in peace.

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.

Other things to note

There may be occasional noise in the yard as we do have 2 children, however if guests are in the Kite Shed we will endeavour to keep this to a minimum.

Just perfect. This delightful self contained accommodation is perfect for a couple. Extremely spacious and well appointed and so peaceful, quiet and private. It is centrally located and nicely away from the hustle and bustle. So much to see and do locally and perfect for walks and driving. Can't recommend highly enough.

The Kite Shed was in a perfect location and was immaculately presented. Tara was accommodating and had excellent communication with me before and throughout my stay. The bay across the road was an added bonus to such a gorgeous stay.
