From the moment we booked our stay, we knew we were in very capable hands. Jen and Ian were both incredibly friendly and helpful in ensuring that my family were catered and cared for when staying on their property. With four adults and four children staying on their property as well as two adults staying a house away they kept in contact via phone and email in the lead up to our stay to assist us in any way they could.
From the second we arrived we were all captivated by the gorgeous surroundings, from the tall trees to the sounds of birds and flowing water we knew we were going to have a lovely stay.
The children loved exploring the land, feeding the chickens, patting the most friendly cat, jumping on the trampoline and swinging on the swings amongst the trees.
The facilities we fantastic also, with a warm wood fire our nights were cosy and waking up in the morning to a floor to ceiling window with gorgeous views and hearing trickles of water from the creek it was truly a piece of paradise.
We would definitely love to stay again, but for much longer next time! Thank you so much, Jen and Ian for making us feel so welcome and allowing us to have such an enjoyable stay.
Runaway was great from the moment booked to the end of our stay. The hosts Ian and Jen are excellent at communicating and are very helpful. They were also very kind and accommodating to my 6 month old baby and helped us with whatever we needed.
The house and location is perfect. The house is clean, spacious, fully equipped with whatever you need and the king size beds are very comfortable. The location is less than 10 minutes from Maleny town. The grounds is what makes this place the most special, they are so well looked after with beautiful green grass to relax on and the whole property is surrounded by trees which really makes it so beautiful and peaceful. We didn't want to leave! We had no wifi or phone service so be ready to completely switch off and relax! We will be visiting again as soon as we can.
great location not far from maleny or montville. so many things to enjoy on the property, great way to experience good old fashioned outdoor fun. Owners are so lovely and easy to deal with. Loved the massage chair and shower. Lovely restaurants and shops in the area, also enjoyed trekking to the waterfalls close by. Will be visiting again as soon as we get another break
Jen and Ian have such an amazing house, the location is peaceful and so calming. The fire was amazing and the wall to ceiling windows are like you are living outside. Large open areas and such a private location. Jen and Ian were so fantastic to deal with, I would go back in flash.
The sunshine coast hinterland is a gorgeous, green and peaceful place to get away from the hassles of everyday living. 'Runaway to Maleny' was a gem we never expected to find. On a property filled with lush bushland and a wonderful creek just perfect for a refreshing dip, we found just what we needed to refresh and recharge after a long week at work. The property is a home away from home with everything you could possibly need. Self contained unit featuring a pool table, barbeque area and games and a trampoline for the kids. Jen and Ian are the loveliest couple, warm and welcoming, making us feel right at home from the start. We enjoyed a great massage in the Shala from lovely Helena, getting rid of all our kinks. And I just loved banging the gong at the entrance to alert all to our arrival. Maleny cheese just around the corner was a delicious place to stop and enjoy a quick lunch while choosing some great cheeses, yoghurts and condiments to bring home. Being close to both Maleny and Monteville we enjoyed a great variety of cuisines as well as some great shopping, arts and crafts. Overall an absolutely delightful place to stay for a weekend. We can't wait for our next trip to Maleny.
