We made a last minute decision to get away for a Saturday night just recently and lucky I found availaibilty at this great place that we had stayed at a few years ago it was such a delight to go back also very welcomed by Ken and crew and one of the best breakfasts on offer next time we will make a planned trip and be able to spent a few more nights and stay in one of the new villas have only stayed in the main house B & B rooms which have always been clean comfortable and lot of attention in detail to the design and furnishings such a terrific location and so peaceful we will make sure we return again soon.

I wanted to book a weekend away for my partner and myself just to relax. Was over going to the coast etc. booked here as I read the reviews on trip advisor. We stated for two nights in the lovina cottage. Service form our hosts were wonderful, cooked breakfast every morning was delicious could not ask for more. Our room was wonderful, felt like we were in Bali! Ambience was totally bliss. It rained alot when were we there but that have us no option but to relax. Plenty of spas and and they have such a wide range of DVDs to choose from. I thought this was a great idea. Wonderful experience felt like we were forever away. Have come home totally relaxed thank you

Spent 4 days/nights at this amazing property. So relaxing, the view across the valley and dam was beautiful. The Balinese style villa was luxurious, comfortable, spotless and secluded. Great breakfast, and helpful staff/owner. Enjoyed the daily visits from the owners very friendly and well behaved dogs. Loved the double spa and relaxing on the balcony.

Stayed there in January 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the villa we stayed in. Hosts were very accommodating and the vila was very well thought out in terms of space and amenity. Its worth the money. Youtube Maleny Tropical Retreat and you won't hesitate.

Room Tip: I think the bottom one is the most private but they are al pretty private, the higher ones have bett...

We drove the whole of the Sunshine Coast and couldn't find any accommodation. Googled and found a real gem. Ken booked us in over the phone and about 40 mins later we were totally blown away by this villa in the hills. So glad we found it and they had a vacancy. We arrived after dark so can't wait to see the place in the morning. The double spa was magic on our weary bones since we have driven from Darwin and still have a drive to go before heading back. Ken brought 2 Balinese dressing gowns to wear after a spa, just after we arrived. Organised a massage each for after breakfast too. Can't wait to get my camera out in the morning. Definitely going to try to book in on our way back home next week. Has a kitchen, double shower Bali day beds inside and on the balcony each villa is well spaced away from others so you have the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere by yourselves

Booked on the off chance for one night. Looked at the bed and breakfast rooms and they were good, then had a look at one of the chalets. It was really good, peace and quiet, not over looked, well equipped. Double jacuzzi bath in the room as well as a separate double shower. Room was to a very high standard with a balcony that overlooked the valley.
The local pub/ restaurant runs a free pick up service, used it and it ran on time and the meal was good.
Next time in australia will go back

From the time of booking, right up to our (late) arrival on Friday night (thanks to a delayed plane and traffic :) ), we felt instantly at home and welcome.

You really felt as though city troubles melted away and Dawn's warm and accomodating nature, as well as the friendly dogs - got our weekend off on the right foot.

We stayed in Lovina and it was perfect, nice and close to the main building, but at the same time completely private. Couldn't hear a thing from the main building. Clean, comfortable and cosy.

Thank you Dawn for our lovely weekend away and thank you for the above and beyond approach (the croissants for the road after we slept through breakfast was lovely :) ).

We will definitely be back, hopefully in the winter when we can utilise the fireplace.

Room Tip: If you are after views of the valley and the lake - go for the free standing vila's. If you wou...
