About this space

Only 50 mins from Brisbane where you can explore nature in style. Picnic under the mango tree or in the olive groves then star gaze, or, as a recent booking Benjamin M said, “The stress of our day to day disappeared as we sat outside into the late evening watching the Milky Way reveal herself to us in all of her glory!”. The sky is so clear here with little light pollution, you hardly need use the telescope that’s in our loungeroom – especially for winter observation.

Surround yourself in the sanctuary of 40 acres with picturesque views across the entire valley, watch the bird life, listen to cows lowing….. Completely off-grid yet all the facilities of full mobile coverage, high-speed internet, Google Chromecast, Netflix, Smart TV, and sound.

Yes, standalone 248 sqm weatherboard cottage. That means all electricity and water is generated on our property – completely green sustainability and a very very small carbon footprint.

Cascade cottage is fully insulated. By turning on the large ceiling fans we find air conditioning is not required. For natural cross-ventilation, all the bi-folds in the loungeroom can be opened as a single door or folded right back to take advantage of the afternoon sea breeze and wonderful natural light.

Open-plan Hampton style kitchen with breakfast bar, dining, lounge, and full laundry facilities. Lounge with combustion wood fire and three sets of bifold doors opening onto wrap around verandahs and expansive lawns.

In the cooler months you’ll be as warm as toast in a jiffy from the fuel-efficient wood combustion fire. Paper and matches are in the pantry to start the fire, plenty of kindling and logs felled from our farm are at the ready.

We’ve a fully stocked kitchen – 5 burner SMEG gas stove and all new appliances. Easily set up with beautiful dinner ware and accessories. For example, Heritage bone china white dinner set for 8, extra dinner plates Italian patterned ceramic Maxwell Williams, Cutlery; Laguiole and stainless steel Stanley Rogers 56 piece setting, all BBQ utensils and so much more. Just 5 mins to town for supplies; the Dayboro Bakery provide savory and sweet platters and The Old Storehouse does some lovely picnic hampers with gourmet deli produce.

Soaring VJ ceilings upstairs where you’ll find our two bedrooms separated by the bathroom. Queen sleigh bed in North bedroom and king bed or two king singles in the South bedroom. Of course, all our beds can be made up using fine spun 100% cotton 500 percale white sheets – picture perfect and luxuriously comfortable.

Many TV, filming, photo backdrops both inside and out – mid western barn with tractor parked up, large 30sqm custom-built pergola with wicker lounge setting to take in the uninterrupted views, café setting on the 6 foot verandahs, two billabong dams surrounded by trees, two 22000 litre corrugated steel water tanks, 13 large batteries for full solar power, 900 olives, 4000 cabinet trees, 600 metre undulating gravel drives, mature phoenix palms and an out-door loo for the adventurous!

Also a six metre diameter fire pit. Requests fully catered to on application 🙂

Take a quick glance at some recent reviews from real people:

Jessica S said “The cottage was exactly as described, and immaculately clean. The property is stunning, and so peaceful. If you’re into stargazing or astrophotography, this is an excellent spot as well – I got some beautiful photos.”

Katrina P said “The cottage and surrounds are beautiful. The pictures don’t do the cottage justice. This place is actually stunning. Hard to believe it’s only a short trip from Brisbane.”

Clare D said “The most perfect pocket of paradise. an exquisite private cottage, immaculately styled and presented with breathtaking views.”

Cooper B said “Malcoms property is to die for.”

Heath from Heath Missen Photography said “Upon closing the timber entry gates and following the tree-lined gravelled drive there is an immediate sense of seclusion. Atop the drive awaits a charming, white timber home and outdoor pavilion that offer spectacular, uninterrupted vistas over the established olive grove toward Ocean View, Mount Mee and the D’Aguilar National Park. Simply spectacular. The modern home is entirely off-grid but nothing is compromised; the house is beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and has a lovely homely feel. The pride of the owners is evident in every element of the Birdwood property.”

Alice H said “This retreat is beyond expectations, it is one of those rare places on earth that make one’s soul sing for joy. More than that, it is such a privilege for us guests that Malcolm is willing to share that paradise he has created and built. It’s an astonishing collection of hand-crafted structures carefully sited within in a wondrous agrarian landscape. Capability Brown would be proud of the result.”
