My husband and I have stayed in the Hide pavilion twice now and both times were incredible. I recommend Lyola to anyone looking for a romantic escape. Laying in bed looking out the window all that can be seen is a silhouetted canopy of trees with a million stars over head. It is truly magical. Things to love about Lyola... More

Everything about this lovely place is all about relaxing. From having the fireplace lit before we arrived to the beautiful warm freshly cooked bread being hand delivered to your door each morning. The beautiful sunset views that spread out before you and the tranquil sounds of all the amazing birds. To top it off the very warm welcome from Margaret... More

Perfect for the couple looking for some peace and quiet, the space to "be yourselves" and not be bugged by your phone or email (No Optus) Walked down to the swimming hole and rock hopped up the river looking for another more private pool for a swim and were rewarded with a beautiful spot. Took our hot bread and spreads,... More

Lovely people. Great accommodation. Awesome location. What else could you ask for. Perfect getaway from the kids and the rest off the world. Close enough to Maleny but seems like you are in the middle of nowhere.Views are simply to die for. Can't wait to go back.

As I've written previously about the wonders of Lyola, I'll keep it simple. My wife and I were married there and have returned, for our anniversary, every year since. We've just arrived home today after our latest stint and are already booked for next year. In a nutshell, this place rocks! We always stay in Seek, the higher-positioned of the... More

This was our third visit to The Hide cabin in the last 12 years. A magical place of privacy and solitude where you can truly refresh and reinvigorate yourself. Fine linen, comfortable and large bed, lots of relaxing chair and day bed options. The self contained whilst basic as pretty much all you need to whip up a gourmet feast.... More

Our visit to Lyola was to celebrate our halfaversay (6 months). We were in search of a private retreat with two requirements. It had to be wheelchair accessible and it needed to have a spa. The 'Seek' cabin at Lyola fit the requirements perfectly and greatly exceeded expectations. Equipped with a fireplace and reverse cycle airconditioning the Seek cabin is... More

My wife and I stayed at the "Seek" cabin on a cool, rainy and misty couple of nights in July 2012 for our 10th wedding anniversary. We couldn't fault it. The supplied breakfast materials were very thoughtful, as was the endless supply of firewood to keep the cabin warm continuously. The wet weather didn't matter - it just added to... More

My husband and I stayed at Lyola in late February for just one night. It was a very special experience. Having found this place through Green Getaways Australia, we were delighted to be able to have real contact with the owner, rather than just an impersonal booking system. I still cannot get the lovely image of seeing Jane, the owner,... More

Lyola is everything the photos indicate, an idylic secluded treetop retreat. The amenities are excellent, the rooms are very clean and the views are superb. A very relaxing place to stay no matter what the weather conditions are like outside. There are limited places to eat in the area on Mondays and Tuesdays, but this is not a problem as... More
