Maleny, Sunshine Coast, Queensland
Wildlife Holiday House welcomes guests into a smartly renovated Queenslander furnished with period pieces and an abundance of artwork.

Set on 5 acres on the edge of North Maleny, the land has been sanctioned a Wildlife Sanctuary by AQS. You’ll find 3 families of platypuses in the spring fed dam, plus echidnas and rain-forest birds of all kinds.

Guests have said it’s the serenity, the beauty, peacefulness, privacy and views that sets Wildlife Holiday House / Bed and Breakfast apart. But it’s also the sound of waterfalls on the back deck - only a few minutes walk from Gardner Falls (the locals secret watering hole) along the Maleny Trail. And only 10 minutes’ walk into the Maleny town, interspersed with the Sculpture Walk and other points of interest. Across the road is the Maleny Golf Course. There is no time to be bored!

You cannot go wrong staying at this wonderful wildlife holiday house in Maleny. It was in a perfect location for our family and despite us filling all the bedrooms there is lots of space and every facility (kitchen, TV and games entertainment, bbq, etc) that you could dream of! Coupled with a generous and warm host which was the icing on the cake. As promised this is a genuine Queenslander home with lots of care and thought that has gone into it. The larder and fridge were stocked up with lots of goodies, including a lovely surprise Maleny cheese hamper and wine.
The location is very convenient for Maleny town (you can walk the Maleny trail right from the door step), Australia Zoo short drive, surrounded by wonderful nature, and if you are lucky enough you will even get to see platypus in the lake close by.
We have been lucky to travel to many countries over the years but the attention to detail, generosity of the host and peaceful nature of this home is up there with the best.

Management response:

This family have to be the most enthusiastic tourists I have met..into every thing and place..super friendly and I thought a cleaner had been in after they left the house. Great group recommend 5 star for guests..Dad so loved his stay he gave me a hug. It was good old fashioned hospitality they wanted.

Very accommodating host who supplied all you need for a house full. Breakfast was exceptional and varied but we still did not manage to use it all. Location is quiet. Kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. The host forwarded promptly, an item that I left behind. Gift of soaps much appreciated. We would certainly revisit this property.

Management response:

I learnt hospitality when I grew up in New Zealand and enjoy making sure people enjoy themselves. Owner Maleny Wildlife Holiday House
