Cockatoo Cottage is furnished with antiques and the finest of linens, and overlooks tropical and cottage gardens, in a bushland setting. Set on 4 acres in the beautiful Samford Valley, with abundant birdlife, you can enjoy the antics of the cockatoos at the bird feeder, and hand feed the friendly kookaburra. Very quiet location, yet less than 4 minutes from Samford village, and some 30 minutes from Brisbane central.
The cottage is newly built, with fresh new bathroom, and granite top kitchenette. It has a ceiling fan and air conditioning (cooling and heating) for your comfort, and is fully screened.
The suite is furnished with a queen size mahogany bed, fine white linens (100% pure white cotton) with accents by Laura Ashley, or Martha Stewart. ALL of the soft furnishings - not just the bed linen - are freshly laundered, as we pride ourselves on the space being meticulously clean.
The generous space includes a wardrobe, soft and comfortable leather sofa (which converts to a double bed), dining table, kitchenette, flat screen television, and bathroom with shower. We wouldn't recommend the sofa bed for adults though; our recommendation is that it used for a young child only.
There is an outdoor area, paved with granite tiles, on which you can enjoy a morning cuppa with the birds, or evening drink under the stars. This looks out on to a cottage garden, and tropical garden backdrop, which then leads down to a swimming pool, which you are welcome to use; pool/beach towels are provided for you.
The kitchenette provides a sink, kettle, toaster, microwave, and bar fridge.
The fridge is stocked with homemade butter, pure honey (from our beehives), homemade peanut paste, jams, passionfruit curd and marmalades. We grow what we can ourselves and everything else is sourced locally and organically.
We will provide your choice of freshly baked bread for toast, muffins, crumpets, cereals, muesli or oats for porridge. Also, milk, juice, tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. The fruit bowl will be full of seasonal fruits, or melons in the fridge.
Disponible para huéspedes
There is an electric gate to access the property, and you will be given a remote control key to use for the duration of your stay. Access is then via a pathway from the shared driveway/parking area, and up sandstone steps to the main entry door of your private cottage. You are most welcome to enjoy the rest of the garden, fire pit, and swimming pool area, all set on 4 acres (of largely bushland).
Atención a los huéspedes
We have travelled widely ourselves, and enjoy interaction with guests, but we do consider your privacy as extremely important, and you are left to initiate any contact during your stay. We are always happy to provide tips on good local restaurants and points of interest.
Otros aspectos destacables
There is no public transport nearby, and so, it is necessary to have a car to get to Samford village and its facilities.
Whilst the suite does not have a washing machine or dryer inside, we are happy to wash a basket of clothing for you, and there is a clothesline easily accessible. (We know how hard it can be to get laundry done when you're travelling!) There is also a laundromat in the village.
Please note, we have a friendly border collie dog and gentle giant German Shepherd, who will usually meet and greet you, but then leave you in peace. They are kept inside in the main house at night.
We have beehives which provide all of our delicious honey; these are a long way off from the cottage, and you would need to walk to the bottom of the property to find them. But best not to go to within a couple of metres of the hives themselves. You may see bees in the flower gardens going about their business, but they are not aggressive unless under threat.
We appreciate you treating the property as if it was your own. We have lovely rainwater as our water supply; you will need to bear in mind that this is not an endless supply in the tanks.
This is a non smoking property (including outdoors).
