We attended a wedding at Montville and chose to stay at the Avocado Grove based on the exceptional reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed for everything was excellent especially the generous hospitality afforded by our hosts Sonya and John. They were so welcoming and generous with their hospitality. Everything was excellent - what more can I say!

I tried to find think if what else I can write but it is getting more difficult. I brought my parents here to stay for 2nights and they were blown away by the meals provided, the excellent service provided and the amenities that were made available in this place. The part is when I told my folks how much I paid for it, they were astonished! That can only mean value for money!!

If anyone is still not convinced, let's just say this had been my third stay in 1 year, and mind you I am a very picky customer! Will definitely visit again when I come back to Brisbane!

My family and friends stayed at the Avocado Grove in late Nov 2013 and we were "wowed" by its rooms and service. The place was absolutely cosy, extremely clean, peaceful and beautiful, but what truly stands out were the attentiveness and hospitality of John and Sonya. We were greeted by the couple upon our arrival and immediately they made us feel at ease and "at home". They gave us some tips on the nearby places of interest and brought us around their fruits plantation.

John and Sonya are a terrific couple and good cooks too, We had 3 course set dinner and a breakfast. The meals were delicious and the dessert makes us speechless.

We wished we had stayed 2 nights as 1 night was too short. We will definitely stay with Avocado Grove for a longer period if we have a chance to visit Flaxton again.

John & Sony, thanks again for making our stay a memorable and pleasant one. Both of you are clearly doing an excellent job! Keep up the good work!

We would highly recommend staying at the Avocado Grove

Love, Doreen

John is an amazing host. He was very concerned to ensure that everything was alright and that I was happy. When I arrived he offered to make me tea, take care of bags, etc. When I had trouble getting phone reception (Telstra) he offered to let me use the landline. When we came back late he took the trouble to introduce us to other couples staying and offered us wine, tea, coffee, etc. It is not really surprising that everyone staying there seemed to be having a fantastic time! Basically John is incredibly accommodating and friendly and I was quite frankly amazed at the lengths he went to make sure I was happy. I didn't pay anywhere near 5 star prices but we definitely got 5 star service and hospitality.

We stayed in the Shephard room, which has a lovely view of the mountains and sliding door out onto a large verandah. The bed was super comfortable and the room was very quiet. Being a B&B the room is pretty simple in terms of furnishings, the website has a very accurate description and pictures. I didn't realise I had booked the only non-ensuite room, but this was not really a problem. Everything was spotlessly clean and tidy. The breakfast is very comprehensive and John will prepare it at the time of your choosing. One thing they don't mention is that they have free WiFi!!! That was an unexpected bonus.

The location of the B&B is actually a lot better than I expected. Off the main road, and very short drive north of Montville and Kondililla Falls. One of the main reasons I booked this place, is that the rates are extremely reasonable in comparison to other accommodation in the area, and they also allow one night stays on weekends. This makes it very appealing to people travelling on a budget (like us!).

The only real 'problem' I had was that despite instructions, I had trouble getting the shower temperature to regulate. It seemed to have a mind of its own in terms of hot and cold! I'm sure if I had mentioned it to John he would told me how to fix it, but I did eventually manage to wrangle it to stay 'warm'.

We have already recommended this place to family and friends.

Room Tip: Shepherd room does not have an ensuite bathroom. All other rooms do, I believe. Shephard and Reed rooms open onto verandah with view of the mountains.

Thank you very much for the wonderful review. Although I cant put a name to the review , I am pleased that I made your stay here as comfortable as can be. Yes, now and again guests do book the Shepard room in error, not realising that the bathroom is seperate, if availability we are happy to change the room. Regarding the shower, you need to run the hot tap first and gradually the cold tap. I appreciate your time in writing such a detailed review and thank you once again. John

My wife found Avocado Grove on the web and it certainly lived up to the good reviews. The self contained unit on the lower level was clean, comfortable and roomy. The location is ideally suited for exploring the surrounding area from Maleny to Kenilworth. But the highlight was the beautiful breakfasts, and the evening meal shared with the pleasant company of the other guests, and later our hosts John and Sonia. The dining / lounge area is beautifully appointed, with quality art works and a stunning view. John, who has spent his working life in the hospitality industry, offered to prepare a variety of dishes for breakfast, but I couldn't go past the Avocado Grove Special – superb.

Room Tip: To choose a good room, pick any one.
