Cosy cottage with privacy and beautiful view

Pros: Tranquility, Privacy and Relaxing
A very tranquil relaxing few days away from the every day. Completely enjoyable and peaceful allowing time to reconnect and very intimate and private. We never saw other guests as the garden surroundings complete the scenery. Very happy and definitely would return.

Over and beyond our expectations would give a 10!

Pros: How kind hearted, authentic, genuine and lovely the staff were. I have never in my entire life been made to feel this valued as a guest.
Cons: I have thought long and hard for 5 minutes going over each section of the cottage and can't fault it. They really have thought of everything.
Location: The Italian woodfire pizza place is very yummy, montville shops are very close by
Where do I even start on our amazing experience? First our babysitter fell through at the last second, I rang and asked them if I could bring my 9 year old son and what the extra costs would be. He said don't even worry! He stayed free and we only had to pay extra for our son's breakfast in the morning. When we arrived he greeted us and took us down to our cottage (I have been on many, many retreats and the staff have not once taken us to our cottage, rather they would throw the key at you and that was that). He was such a gentleman. He had extra blankets, pillows, cups already organised for our son to stay. There was home-made chocolates and cookies waiting for us, as well as fresh scones. My husband ordered some wine for us and we were amazed when they gave us 2009 wine all the way from kangaroo island (top notch stuff!), he showed us all the hot spots to visit. He brought us breakfast fit for a king and queen's feast each morning and it was absolutely delicious, did I mention this breakfast is complimentary in your booking price? Wow. They even noticed my son liked their home-made cookies so filled the jar back up for him and that my husband liked the pod coffee so gave us extra pods. So much attention to detail.

Relaxing retreat

Had a wonderful stay at Lillypilly’s. This was my second time I stayed there with my partner and it was a night away without children. it was very relaxing. The ‘little touches’ make the accommodation very comfortable and I will definately be back.

Beautiful accommodation, surroundings and staff!

We had an absolutely wonderful time. Everything was beautiful and relaxing. The staff were so thoughtful and lovely. The cabin was just gorgeous, and the view was incredible.

Great Getaway

Pros: Very cosy with wood heater, nice romantic spot.
Cons: Nothing, well catered especially complimentary dvd's, cd's boardgames etc.
Location: A hinterland aspect with great views, Gardner Falls close by and Maleny Hotel with a superb menu and lovely setting.
Arrived at Lillypillys to be greeted by lovely owners and complimentary scones,jam and cream which were delicious. Stayed in cottage with a slight lake view and fabulous spa bath with comfy bed. Everything lovely with tasty breakfast. Nice overnight stay.

Great place for a escape

Pros: Comfort, cosiness and the views.
Location: close to relaxing (or strenuous if you like) walks and national parks. Both Montville and Malaney are only a stones through away/
Easy to get to, but feel like you are away from everything. From the second you step into the place you automatically de-stress with welcoming forest entrance and hosts/owners who are relaxed and go out of their way to make sure you know the facility and how to relax... nothing was too much trouble and the place is built for a stress free get away.
