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.

|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.
