“An absolute find!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

After a lot of internet searching for a B & B in the Maleny/ Montville area, the Avocado Grove was my pick and I wasn't the least disappointed. John and Sonya were wonderful hosts and their attention to detail even meant my husband and I were provided with a candle as we watched the sun set over the mountains and the avocado trees.
The breakfast that was provided was amazing - very delicious and healthy and both courses were beautifully presented.
Value for money was a 10 out of 10!!!
Serenely quiet and highly recommended!!!
Lynda

Room Tip: We stayed in the green room and that was the best in my opinion.

I organised a night at Avocado Grove B&B for my parents as a gift. I presently live abroad and Sonya and John were very helpful in organising the stay despite the awkward time difference and need to communicate mainly via email.
I can't comment personally on the facilities, cleanliness etc but my parents had a lovely night (including dinner and breakfast) and would highly recommend this as a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you Megan for taking the time to write a review of behalf of your parents. We enjoyed meeting them both, I expect they are enjoying themselves in Canada by now. Enjoy London as you only have another 6 months before you return home.

WoW!!
We're totally lost for words. I was previously a Travel Agent Booking Agency Officer but have never ever stayed in accommodation like this with such outstanding service, tolerance, elegance, patience (with 2x children in house). Thank you Thank you Thank you we will be back..... if ever the budget allows!

We truly felt like we were treated like Kings/Queens/Princesses prior to my sister's wedding...even to the extent where John gave one of his personal ties to the father of the Bride to wear for the day as it was left at home. Anything and Everything (above and beyond) we asked for was accommodated for exceptionally.

John, your breakfasts are to die for~(hubby ate the fat stuff .. haha) but I especially loved your poached eggs (which you wouldn't share your trick with .... hehe) best ever! I just cannot ever get them like this! Fresh fruit (from your property) and bread Totally amazing!

Amazing Chef/Host & time for every individual (including all our names, I ... can't say enough and am honestly I'm lost for words. Absolutely AMAZING breakfasts on the deck outlooking the beautiful countryside! Most beautiful rooms set out with wonderfully clean deluxe sheets.

Sonya, I hope he serves you breakky in bed @ the same time!! I almost felt guilty : )

I can see it's not a job for you both, as you truly care for people genuinely and have a passion for sharing your absolutely spectactular property with "strangers" is a priviledge. (just wishing we could've brought some of your amazing home grown passionfruits home!!lol and thanked you more : ()

Thankyou so much John & Sonya, we will never ever forget our amazing experience xx

If anything, the following is a statement from my daughter's exact words(4 y old) after staying @ Avocado Grove:


"Dear Sonya & John, we are glad that you have the best day in your life but make sure you have the best day for your only life and Gisele is saying is this from now on and forever in your heart. Forever your heart is now relaxed from the way your heart feels in protection and your love. For your heart feels the one to explain and I hope that you have the best life .... (totally from Gisele @ 4 yo) What I liked the best about the house it was fun and absolutely great so I hope John and Sonya have a great day ! (baby talk but oh so cute) xxx


much luv, Rachel & Gisele xx

Simply the best ,great location ,great food ,wonderful host John and hostess Sonya .We had a great time at a family wedding in Flaxton made all the better for our stay at Avocado Grove.
We were made welcome from the minute we arrived.
We were offered a choice of rooms even although we had chosen one from the website.
Our room was comfortable and well presented with all the facilities generally associated with a quality hotel and one of the only locations were we stayed on our Australian trip that offered free use of WIFI.
John and Sonya are a very friendly couple who are genuinely interested in their guest and that is reflected in the service you receive.
The breakfast is as good as you will get anywhere ,the setting is idyllic overlooking the large garden to the rear of the property.
Highly recommended ,loved it.

Thanks to John and Sonya, we felt very welcome and Avocado Grove was just beautiful. Both John and Sonya were very accommodating, letting us check in early to get ready for a wedding and even offering to drive us there. Breakfast was lovely with a spectacular view to boot!. highly recommend!

We visited Flaxton to attend a wedding, and our stay at Avocado Grove made it such an enjoyable and easy weekend away! John and Sonya were so hospitable and kind, and the best cooks! Enjoyed a delicious dinner and multiple cooked breakfasts, yum! And the setting of Avocado Grove is just magic, overlooking beautiful lush country. Little touches, like plentiful towels and bath robes, made it extra comfy! highly recommend as a place to stay :)

I stumbled across this B & B searching on google maps for accommodation close to flaxton gardens for my brothers wedding. I didn't expect what we got at all.....
The location is absolutely amazing, stunning views and a beautiful house to stay the night.
The hosts, John and Sonja where like family from the minute we arrived, helping us quickly get ready and having things on hand that we had forgotten. They couldn't do enough for us. John lending my husband his belt and Sonja helping me sew up dress. Not to mention being fabulous with our children, sorting toys, kids tv channels and taking them for walks in the garden to see the chickens and distracting them from meltdowns in the morning.
The rooms were so nice, clean and tidy with comfortable beds.
The gardens were just beautiful with lots for my daughter to explore including a fish pond and chickens.
Breakfast in the morning was one of the best I've had. So relaxing on the huge deck with stunning views and yummy food. Fresh fruit from their garden with homemade granola. Then the avocado grove special hot breakfast. Delicious.
If you need a place in the maleny/montville area for a wedding or just want to get away this is the place to stay. I know ill be going back here the next chance I get.
