As parents with young kids, beach is our usually choice of holiday, so this time we wanted to try something different and we're glad we chose spending time at The African Cottage. The cottage is clean and fully equipped to details, from different facial towels for removing make up (for ladies) to plastic plates/cups... for kids. My kids loved the... More

My partner and I had a wonderful 2 nights at delightful Cape Cabin tucked under the spreading branches of 100+ year old Moreton Bay fig. The cabin was so pleasantly decorated with a sense of Africa in all the furnishings and lovely little odds and ends around the rooms. Matilda could not have been more helpful and also prepared an...

We visited Maleny / Montville for a short holiday. There were five of us - two parents, two kids and one grandparent, so the 3 bedroom African Cottage was ideal. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to this part of QLD. As with all my accommodation reviews, here are the good points: - great (and huge) kitchen, including massive oven -... More

This is the second time I visited "The Rondawel" at African Cottage. Really love this unique cottage that hidden at Maleny. Fully furnished, very spacious and relaxing along with some African music. Matilda prepared African dinner, along with some seafood we bought from Mooloolaba, my family had a great time celebrating Father's Day. Will definitely revisit this place again. Thanks... More

We had a fabulous holiday in the Rondawel African Cottage this week with an almost 360 degree outlook from our cottage. Fully furnished, spacious and clean with lovely grounds. Very relaxing. We were welcomed by Matilda who had prepared a traditional African Dinner for us, which was delicious! This is a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay.

As a South African, I was looking for an authenic experience - which is not easy to find! Well...we were just blown away! From the time we booked in and throughout our stay, Matilda excelled...
