We recently stayed at Half Moon Hideaway as a weekend get away. We were given a gift voucher from a friend for Christmas in 2007 and wished we had used it sooner as we are planning another trip back when we need to relax outside of the city.
The website for the cottage does not do it justice as it was just fantastic.
We had drinks on the deck overlooking the hills. Spent time in the spa with a great view and relaxed at night in the living area by the warm fireplace.
The basket of goodies and fridge full of food was out of this world and was so great!!! The cottage has everything you can need plus more and 5 star hotels could learn about what to provide to guests.
We fed horses straight from the deck - that was cool.
You have Maleny a few minutes drive away and the historic local hotel does a transfer service I believe if you want to be picked up and have some drinks in the heart of Maleny. Plus there is an irish pub a little walk away.
The owners are very friendly and skittles loves to keep saying hello. You can even take your own pets and our own puppy had a great time!!
Enjoy yourself and take a break!!
