Mudjimba Cottage Couples Retreat - pets allowed inside & 250m to the surf

Bedrooms 1
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

This stylish pet friendly couples/singles retreat is tucked away 250m to the surf beach at Mudjimba. The mature trees shade the so private, 1.8m high fully fenced and secure garden area, for you and your pets. The little deck area with outdoor bar, is north facing and the cottage is light filled. There is free wifi. There is off-street parking - although our van may sometimes be parked there as well (it is a long driveway).

The lovely king bed has an expensive deep mattress and in the lounge there is a pull out resort quality sofa bed. Three people are permitted for a couple of days but the for longer times, the cottage is most ideal for 1 - 2 people. The cottage is fully airconditioned and has fans. The TV is a 55 inch with a DVD recorder as well.

There is a stove, electric cook top and microwave - there is a gas Weber Q BBQ outside. The bathroom/laundry is spacious. Bed linen is provided but please bring your own towels unless you are flying in.

Pets are allowed inside and all areas are tiled. There is no extra charge for your pets and you are allowed up to 3 pets.

The cottage is one of 3 cottages at 18 Currawong St Mudjimba (one behind the other but quite separately fenced and private, and with separate access to each). The other larger 2-3 bedroom cottage in the front is Mudjimba Beach House. The one night minimum Mudjimba Bliss is on this site also (not available for peak times though but a budget pet friendly alternatives for off peak stays.

The cottages are 150 m to the local eateries of unspoiled Mudjimba Beach and the cafes are dog friendly and the locals very welcoming. Further west about 1.5 km away from the cottages in Pacific Paradise are a Coles, chemist, bottle shop, and other delights.

Dogs allowed off lease about 1km down the beach and on lease on the front main beach and parks. An extensive bike track and a still water dog offleash area in the nearby Maroochy River (dog off-leash and calm water off North Rd) are added attractions.

Mudjimba has a Coles 1.5 km away with all the other shops and services you would expect for convenience but the area where the cottage is close to the beach, is a local secret with state forests surrounding it and only infill development possible.

For reviews of my other pet friendly cottages on Stayz please check out in Brighton, Brisbane North the one bedroom Happiness Cottage (Google: Stayz 170457) and the 2 bedroom Paradise Cottage (Google Stayz 132603); and in Central Queensland try Riverside Cottage Rockhampton (Google: Stayz 187805).

My pet friendly cottages all allow dogs inside and we charge no extra cleaning fee (apart from the normal $60 to $80 exit clean) for having your pets. Pets are allowed on sofas etc and we provide coverings to protect the sofas. All cottages have secure fencing (as we have lived in all of these cottages ourselves and our dogs are escape artists).

We expect our guests to have their pets' vaccinations and health checks up to date for their pets as they would if going into kennels.

We have been providing pet friendly (pets allowed inside) accommodation for 7 years with lovely budget cottages in Mudjimba Brighton and Rockhampton. 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

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). 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.

I loved the Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a great find the Beach Cottage was. It certainly exceeded my expectations. I couldn't have hoped for a better place to stay for 3 nights with my little dog Monty while visiting friends. The cottage was clean & bright with a large deck in the midst of a private leafy backyard which Monty enjoyed stretching out on when he wasn't enjoying his walk to the beach. Many thanks to owners Helen & Glenn for introducing me to the High Tide Bar on Friday night and for making me feel so welcome which made my little holiday just perfect.

time away

we loved the days we spent at the cottage in Mudjimba. Our dogs loved walking to the beach and the fish and chip shop nearby made the best fish and chips we have tasted in a long time.

Excellent value.

  • 5 of 5

We picked Mudjimba Cottage due to closeness to the beach, and the pet-friendly nature of the cottage. The cottage was perfect for our needs, very clean and tidy, and Zac, our Miniature Schnauzer, loved the tropical rainforest feel of the garden. A lovely quiet location, within a short walk to wonderfully uncrowded beaches and a range of local shops. Also, Mudjimba is a very central location from which to explore the Sunshine Coast and hinterland. Highly recommended.

Peaceful Garden Cottage

  • 4 of 5

A quiet little cottage retreat. Quick, flat and easy access to the beach, nature walks and local shops. A big comfortable bed, and I slept very well because of the peaceful location. My dogs enjoyed the secure garden courtyard. Walking them every day at the beach or on the nature walks just behind the beach was a real pleasure. Morning tea under the trees in the courtyard was accompanied by glorious birdsong. The thoughtful addition of grocery basics was an appreciated surprise. Plenty of books were available to read in the little library (you can take one home with you if you haven’t finished reading it during your stay) and leave one of your own in its place. Helen the owner is a caring host, and her communication before, during and after my stay was excellent, checking that the accommodation was as I expected and that I was comfortable. I really enjoyed my short retreat at Mudjimba Beach Cottage and am already planning my return visit.

Fantastic little place for a getaway holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Mudjimba Cottage Retreat was exactly what I was looking for. Tucked away, off the street - totally private; I felt very safe and at home. The big bonus was that it is totally pet-friendly. It was so nice for my dog to be as welcome as I was. I think she loved it as much as I did, especially that she was allowed to be inside to crash out on the couch after a big day at the beach.

With the gorgeous beach at the end of the street and a great selection of cafes and eateries just a little further along, Mudjimba is a well kept secret. It is a beautiful part of the world.

I have nothing negative to say about the Cottage and all that was provided, about Mudjimba or about my holiday. It was awesome.
