Very calming and relaxing

Pros: Different from our normal beach getaways, very peaceful and quiet. Small venue where you don't see a lot of other guests.
Location: Just a 5 minute drive into Maleny if you need to pick up supplies. Plenty of things to do close by. Wineries, walking trails, great country scenery
This is a great place for a relaxing peaceful getaway but a little overpriced. The villas are smaller than the photos show but overall it was large enough for the 2 of us for a 2 night stay. Restaurant provides great food and staff are very helpful with great service. Breakfasts are great with a twist on your run of the mill standard menu choices which is what you would expect from a boutique accommodation provider. Would definitely recommend this venue and would go back again.

3.5 experience in a 5 star rated and priced resort

Pros: Location and facilities.
Cons: Accommodation needed a complete refurbish.
Accommodation had seen better days and was grubby. Staff were friendly and helpful but not 5 star professionals. Fridge and TV did not work properly. Account had charges for items we did not have.
