“Tranquilty and Serenty”
Reviewed January 20, 2018 for a stay in November 2017

Ian and Jens was a little Perfect forest retreat and only 5 mins away from the town of Maleny. Lovely place for one or two couples wanting to find a place for either adventure or just rest and relaxtion. Having Obi Obi creek only meters away you fall asleep to the sound of running water and birdlife. Ian and Jen are very down to earth and more then welcoming, accommodating to any questions or needs that you may have. There little perosnal touches of home made treats was lovely and that much more warming to stay!!! Absolutely loved my stay and wish it was longer to explore a lot more. Also having other facilities offered like the yoga chalet and onsite massage therapist was delightful. Will definitely be visiting again very soon!!

It was a total joy to have Shelley and her dear friend Evie stay with us. They truly are the most warm hearted and respectful people and we would recommend them to anybody anywhere at all. What a delightful experience to host these dear folk. We welcome back them whole heartedly.

“Unique, spiritual, up-market - hippy type rain-forest bush / creek retreat - 1 of a kind.”
Reviewed January 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

On the magical Obi Obi creek (100 meter fresh water swim hole, cascades, walks at ones door step), 5 minutes drive to Maleny, 10 minutes to Monteville. A modern built pod type home built with love, grace, artist flare, a sense of timelessness, be-spoke finishing and a genuine connection to the land. There are interesting stories everywhere which i loved. I booked at the last minute and got lucky (there was a cancellation). All of us loved the space. We were made feel welcome with genuine love and warmth. Our highlight was a short walk up the Obi Obi creek, then a swim back down to the house and a leisurely lunch with family who visited. My 88 yr old Mum, my 12 yr old daughter and hubby all made to feel individually welcomed. I will enjoy the image of my daughter in togs and sarong at Jen's Grand Piano playing a few pieces overlooking the trees and creek... such a moment. !! Thanks Jen, Ian, Sasha and Shadow

“Relaxed perfection”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We booked a few nights as a getaway over Christmas to allow us to be close enough to family but have some relaxation as well. Runaway to Maleny definitely delivered!

The location was picturesque. We spent an afternoon laying in the hammocks listening to the bamboo move in the breeze. We loved sitting by the river and one night sat on the balcony and watched the storm roll in.

Jen and Ian were great to deal with throughout and Shadow was wonderful to us during our stay, anything we needed she made sure we had. Nothing was too much trouble.

We can't wait to come back.

It was just so wonderful to have this beautiful couple Ciuri and Alex come and stay at ours in Maleny They were so filled with warmth and gratitude and feedback - they truly got our Runaway resort in every sense. We will always keep the lovely photos they sent through of themselves and our Pasha cat. Just the most divine people we would whole heartedly welcome back at any time whatsoever. They are joyful and totally filled with a great energy. Our sincere thanks to them!

“Perfect weekend away for relaxtion”
Reviewed December 3, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Such a picturesque, quiet and relaxing holiday. A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

From the moment we drove down the driveway, Ian and Jen were nothing short of warm and welcoming, ensuring we had everything we needed, helping us find places to eat and things to do as well as greeting us with fresh biscuits and tea.

Will definitely be popping back again!

Reviewed October 3, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had the best time at Jen and Ian's property. Our kids enjoyed every minute of if. We had an amazing tour around the creek, met Pasha the cat, fed chickens and even played with neighbours dog. We highly recommend this place. The energy is surreal and we are definitely coming back. (So much to see in the area as well)

“Highly Recommended!”
Reviewed September 22, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Jen and Ian were wonderful hosts and very easy to talk to. Everything was arranged quickly for my family of 6! The house was stunning and the forest/swim pool was absolute fun to explore and swim in. I highly recommend this place to people who want to get in touch with nature and have a relaxing time away from work or the city. The house is also very near to grocery stores and dining places, which made it very convenient for everything! LOVED IT. I'll definitely go back :-)

Meris and her beautiful family were an absolute delight to have at Runaway. Warm and gregarious to communicate with, clear with planning and totally respectful of our home - we couldn't more highly recommend them.
What a beautiful family!
