Grace Cottage is a charming three bedroom turn of the century timber house with 10' ceilings. It has a separate Lounge room and Dining room. With easterly views of the Gold Coast, particularly enjoyable to watch the lights of the Gold Coast at night from the enclosed Verandah. Situated only 3 minutes drive from Tamborine Mountain's famous Gallery Walk, Rainforest walks and a selection of sumptuous restaurants. Browse through the local farmers market, every Sunday from 7am at the Show Grounds and return to make yourself a gourmet meal in the large fully equipped kitchen. It is only a short 10-15 min drive down the mountain to Theme Parks.
With old world charm and modern conveniences, this charming house is only minutes away from the best Tamborine Mountain has to offer. It is only about a 15 mins if you have tickets for Dream World, Movie World and Wet and Wild.
Grace Cottage is in a peaceful and tranquil location with plenty of native bird life.
I suggest you bring your own car or book a hire car as Tamborine Mountain (approximately 8km long x 4km wide with an elevation is 525m) has many attractions, either on top of the Mountain or on its sides.

Grace Cottage is a no smoking property.
PEACE AND QUIET
It is a quiet residential area and is not suitable for parties, so I would kindly ask you keep noise to a minimum and not allow children to scream. If you bring a dog please ensure they are. It barkers if you leave them on their own.
Please treat my furnishings with care, use coasters provided for drinks, especially hot ones. Do not let children jump on the furniture or the beds or stand in the chairs. Please don't move the beds.
The dining table and buffet are marble topped so try not to spill vinegar or red wine on them as this will eat into and stain the marble. If an accident happens please clean it straight away. There are table cloths provided and place mats. The dining chairs have white upholstery so please put towels on them for children to sit on. Old towels in the bottom of the cupboard next to the fridge can be used for this.
The house only has access to rain water, so please use water sparingly (sorry, no 20 minute showers) It uses a sceptic tank, so please DO NOT flush any foreign objects down the toilet. There is a waste paper bin in the toilet for items.
Please ask me if you plan on bringing your Pet. They must stay on the front verandah or in the front fenced yard. Not in the house. There are poop bags for you to collect their droppings and dispose in outside garbage bin. Please don't leave any behind for the next guests! If there's an accident on the front verandah please clean with vinegar which is under the kitchen sink. If they are likely to bark please leave them on the front verandah if you go out with out them (there's a fan). The front fence is only 90cm high so if you think they are going to jump out re think the need to bring them. Also paralysis ticks are a huge problem on the mountain so please ensure your pet is covered by some sort of protection. There are old dog towels on the bottom shelf of the linen cupboard next to the fridge.
If you do have an accident of some sort, don't stress, I understand that life happens but please just let me know so I can tend to it as soon as possible.
The soil at Tamborine mountain is red and it stains. If someone accidentally gets red mud on the carpet, please use white vinegar (under kitchen sick) to remove and then plain water to rinse off. Just let me know what's happened or if your worried about how to clean it contact me.
The front verandah has clear blinds so please feel free to raise them when you like. However you will need to lower them before going to bed or if it looks like rain! So keep an eye on the weather. Ensure when you lower them that the skirts are fully lowered otherwise the veranda will flood if it rains.
The back patio has a pull out shade awning, please feel free to use it but as with the clears, this needs to be rolled away at night or before any rain or it will collect water and break.
WOOD BURNING FIRE AND CANDLES
Take extra care with candles and extinguish when leaving the room. Timber is supplied for the fire. Please don't throw fire ash on the garden. Wait for it to cool bag it and place in the outside bin.
If you want to use the washing machine use the Samsung on the left. The other one is for cleaning rags and dogs towels.
There is a BBQ on the back patio
Using the Beefeater Bugg BBQ on the back Patio.
The Bugg BBQ is easy to use and the gas bottle is located in the left hand side door of the BBQ cabinet. Please turn the gas bottle off after each use.
Please do not force the knobs.
The knob on the left of the BBQ turns anticlockwise (away from you) and the knob on the right turns clockwise (towards you). It is auto start. There are aluminium trays in the kitchen cupboard to leave under the BBQ to catch fat run off. There are BBQ wipes to clean it after you've finished.
Please don't let fat overflow onto the BBQ cabinet.
The Bugg is designed to be used with the lid closed for roasting or open for grilling. Keep an eye on the temperature gauge on the outside as it does get very hot. You can cook with both or just one burner.
If you have any questions or can't find anything I am always available by using the Airbnb app, phone, text or email, please feel free to contact me or my representative.
