“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

We loved our weekend away, could not have asked for more. Beautiful scenery. Wonderful facilities: huge spa, double shower,BBQ and I loved the day bed on the deck. Great breakfast, lovely treats. Secluded romantic getaways. Highly recommended! Even headed in to the local pub at Kandangar and enjoyed a fun afternoon with the locals. LOVED IT!!

After looking for somewhere locally for our first honeymoon (before we jet set overseas later in the year) this was perfection! Tanya and Tony go above and beyond with all the touches! They have thought of everything and make the perfect hosts. The double shower and spa are bliss, not to mention the fresh fruit, juice and bread delivered to your door every morning (without you hearing or seeing them). The country surrounds make you feel completely relaxed and stress free. We loved every moment here and can't wait to return! It's a must to stay here :) Abbie & Scott

Double shower, spa and beautifully appointed haven in a peaceful bushland setting with absolute privacy. Our 3 nights were bliss with some special, unexpected treats from Tanya & Tony. Our best Easter getaway ever!! We are already planning a return visit!! Maree & Gerard

Hi Tanya, Tony and Emma!

Thank you again for being a great host to us. Our 2 nights stay at the Spring View Cabin has been great. Meeting little Emma has been a highlight of our trip and we enjoyed the company of Rosie and Bella too.

Yes, the bread Tanya made each morning is really, really good. The breafast that were provided - they were so abundant that we didn't need to have lunch!

Thank you Tanya for your great suggestions of visiting the neighbouring little towns. The people in Kandanga and Kenilworth were so friendly and helpful - just like out hosts at Melawondi.

Mei and I hope to go back, the next time we hope to stay at the studio unit for a different experience.

You have our contact - do say hello when you come down to Brisbane.

God bless,
Louis and Mei =)

So many times when we have booked online we have been disappointed with the place once we are there as the photo's have been little misleading. This is NOT the case with Melawondi, this place is AMAZING! The hospitality is absolutely OUTSTANDING. I have been recommending this place to everyone I know. All the little, thoughtful touches that Tanya and her family had set out were so lovely and unexpected. Do not second think staying here you will walk through the doors and instantly your stress is washed away. Every moment was a pleasure here. X

My husband and I have stayed in quite a few B&B's around Australia - this one was amazing! Tanya and Tony were the most welcoming hosts - and never 'hanging around' like you get in some other places! They put breakfast in the fridge and the fresh fruit and bread on the doorstep in the morning so we could sleep in and eat when we were ready! It was extremely quiet and peaceful with only beautiful wildlife noises to be heard. Would definitely recommend, no hesitations.

(The food was amazing, by the way!! Tasted fresh off the farm!!)

I've stayed in lots of B&Bs and some are definitely better than others. Tanya and Tony have paid close attention to what makes for a truly memorable experience and applied it at Melawondi Spring Retreat. The little touches are what makes it so special, including fresh-baked bread that appears like magic, inspiring literature and little treats. On a practical level, the studio has everything a modern couple needs, such as somewhere to dock your ipod and a coffee machine. Due to the secluded location, the way the studio is located on the property, the discretion of your hosts, the plush furnishings, enormous bath and double shower, and sheer beauty of the surroundings, I would rate this as one of the most romantic B&Bs around. Arrive with provisions for lunch and dinner, and don't leave until you have to!
