Holiday rentals

Exclusive rural retreat offering seclusion and serenity. Self-contained luxury.

Leela offers self-contained luxury accommodation for up to eight adults.

Leela is a unique abode, consisting of two linked dodecahedrons, built on a ridge. The first twelve sided module incorporates the living areas, with the second housing the four bedrooms. Sweeping verandahs circle both dodecahedrons.

You will stay in an elegant home, which through its design complements and enhances the landscape. Situated to maximise valley views, tranquillity and privacy, the house is provided with luxury linen and excellent furnishings and fittings. It is unique in both design and decor; its delights only enhanced by the eclectic array of adornments from some unexpected corners of the globe.

Fully ducted reverse circle air conditioning, thermostatically controlled heaters and fireplace will keep guests at the perfect temperature while staying at Leela.

Living areas, gardens and surrounds
Enjoy stunning and uninterrupted forest and valley views from the verandahs and every room in the house. Warm up in winter by the sunken circular fire pit, with its surrounding granite seating. The living room features a wide-screen LED/LCD television with MyStar HD (The Works) catering for all viewing tastes (also including the local HD channels). An accompanying Blu-ray DVD with a range of DVDs is also available. Complimentary (reasonable use) WiFi internet is also available to guests.

The house has four bedrooms. Two of the rooms feature king-sized beds, made from sustainably heli-harvested New Zealand hardwood, featuring an integrated Bose stereo with iPod connectivity. The bed bases can be tailored for small, medium or well-built guests. The third double room features a luxurious queen-sized bed. The fourth double bedroom also has a queen ensemble but can be reconfigured with 2 king singles.

There are two full size bathrooms, each with a stunning view and linked to the bedrooms. A spa is available in the master bathroom and full size bath in the second room, with integrated showers in both.

The stunning granite kitchen comes fully equipped with gas oven, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. Guests will be able to enjoy plunger coffee and a range of herbal and black teas. A Nespresso coffee machine is also on hand for that perfect morning wakeup.

A stainless steel gas BBQ with side burner is also available for guest use. The 72 acre property has 15 acres of lawns, with scattered gardens and offers a private covered parking for up to four cars, a walk in the park through manicured lawns, a six hole par three "Bush Golf" course, swimming pool and five plus kilometres of walking track.

Getting there Located on the Maleny-Kenilworth-Eumundi tourist route, Leela is an easy drive north of Brisbane. It is a mere 10 minutes from Maleny, the centre of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. While Leela fronts the Maleny-Kenilworth Road, most of the property is set in a secluded private valley where natural beauty, spectacular morning mists and tranquillity await. The house is positioned over 500 metres from the main road.
Parking Undercover parking available for up to four cars.
Things to do Situated high in the Blackall Range, about 50 kilometres south-west of Maroochydore, the delightful Sunshine Coast Hinterland village of Maleny lies in picture postcard dairy country, interspersed with rainforest pockets, national parks and stunning vistas.

There are a myriad of sightseeing opportunities on the range, including panoramic views of the Glasshouse Mountains. Bushwalking and bird-spotting are popular pastimes in this area. Maleny and her green hills also boast diverse walking tracks, including Mary Cairncross Reserve, Kondalilla Falls, Gardner's Falls, Kenilworth State Forest and the Great Walks Trail of the Blackall Range.

The towns of Maleny, Kenilworth, Montville and Mapleton are bustling with galleries, boutiques, antiques and collectables, art and craft markets, cafes, an award winning ice creamery, cheese factories and wineries. An abundance of fine dining experiences await, and the range is home to regular cultural festivals and exhibitions.

This secluded pocket is just a 90 kilometres drive north of Brisbane, yet is an eternity from the cares and pressures of the big smoke.
