We stayed in a beautiful cottage for 4 nights. It was clean, warm, comfortable and so very relaxing! We highly recommend this cottage retreat to anyone wanting to get a way from the madness and enjoy wandering around The Sunshine Coast hinterland. We will definitely be back!

When searching for a place to stay in Maleny we stumbled across Whispering Valley, i looked up Tripadvisor and read the reviews and decided to book 2 nights. This was everything we had read and more. The Host is so friendly and inviting and the cabins (Silky Oak) was set up exactly how i had pictured. The whole experience felt... More

My partner and I just had the most relaxing weekend at Whispering Valley. The host Anne was very accomodating and friendly from the moment we arrived. I liked the fact that they just let you be to enjoy the cabin. The cabin itself was so clean. For being in the middle of the rain forest the louvre windows did not... More

The privacy and seclusion of these cottages were fabulous. Friendly staff who didn't bother you at all. Really felt like we could relax here, didn't run into another person. Beautiful location and facilities, would stay here again. Think of it as a rustic cottage, with the finishes you want ie spa, fireplace, king bed.

Wow! From the view to the furnishings to the kind reception... This place is amazing. I originally booked it as we needed accommodation for a family members wedding and my mother-in-law has a rather refined, quaint taste. She loved it here and so did we. Hopefully we can visit again for our own escape. The cottage was clean, tidy and... More

These cottages are comfortable and in a quiet, leafy, private location. They need to be maintained better than what they are. The bathroom was a very poor design with no drain in the middle of the floor. There was no shower screen which meant that the floors and around the edges of the bath was soaked with water. Considering the... More

Our family stayed her to get ready for a wedding for the weekend in Maleney. The house is well loved and cared for. Extremely clean with all the amenities needed for a weekend stay. The beds were comfortable and it was spacious and abundant, the decking was lovely for a warm afternoon lunch and sit down. The highlight for me... More

This place is absolutely bliss. The cabins are stunning and surrounded by beautiful bush land. There are dams and bush walks and you really are in paradise. The cabins themselves have everything you need and are just perfect. Thank you for such a wonderful stay!

Lovely spot for weekend getaway. About 10kms outside of Maleny. Cabins are well-appointed with kitchenette, barbecue, spa baths and pot-belly stoves to keep warm in the winter. Little walks on the property are mapped out. Service and reception are warm and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

We loved our 4 night stay in the Sallywattle cottage. The cottage was comfortable and well laid out, with great views down a little valley to a dam and surrounded by trees. We could have been miles from anywhere it was so quiet and peaceful. Saw a male Satin Bowerbird just outside the bedroom window, which was a treat, and... More
