“Everyone deserves to have an African Cottage experience”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

From first contact with Matilda, I knew this would be a break to remember and it was. Cottage was clean, well appointed and had some very thoughtful touches. We ordered some of the food on offer which was extremely tasty and easy to prepare if you wanted a night in. The grounds envelop you with tranquilty and yet the cottages are close to Maleny and all this charming town has to offer. I felt refreshed and will certainly return.

My husband and I took a 3 day break to this gorgeous place to relax, so beautiful and close to so much . Matilda was a wonderful and very beautiful lady and he cottages are well worth the money to stay in. Dinner was provide and OMG!! that was fantastic along with a bottle of red wine. We will definateley be going there again and have already had some friends book in as well. A place to go for a relaxing time with partner or the whole family, We could even take our dog.

“Beautiful cottages”
Reviewed 16 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

This place is really lovely, just a few cottages with a lovely garden and balcony. Great to take kids too. The owner was really lovely. Great escape from the city if youre looking for peace and quiet with a lovely view.

“Maleny Hideaway”
Reviewed 7 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

This is the most pleasant, friendly ,relaxing and affordable place in Maleny to stay the view of the rangers is spectacular.There is a pool,with great surrounds heaps of space for the children to roam & play. Would recommend this hideaway to anyone who would just like to chill out for the weekend or for that much needed holiday with-out the hussel and bussel of the coasts.

“Batteries recharged”
Reviewed 19 April 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed 2 nights in the latest African room. This room is right next door to the main office but the owners and staff are very quite and we didnt hear them at all. The room is delightful. We were meet by the owner on our arrival, who provided us with a very quick overview of the room because she sensed that we just wanted to relax. Her advise of "just have a glass of wine and relax" was music to my ears.

The food provided was very tasty and a lovely surpise.

If given the opportunity I would love to go back.
