Kaalba 7


Perched on the hillside only a hundred metres from the Obi Obi Creek, Kaalba is a delightful self-contained studio with views out over the rain-forested valley. It is in a quiet and protected location. Throughout the year more than ninety species of bird can be seen (and heard) from the veranda.  When it’s raining the sound of the river fills the valley.

The studio is self-contained, with a queen-size bed, a living area, a small kitchen and external barbecue (Weber), ensuite and north-facing deck. It is air-conditioned, has WiFi and a smart TV with a DVD player (no free to air) and a good library of discs.

Situated on the east side of Maleny it is seven minutes from the town centre and ten minutes from Montville – only thirty-five minutes to the coast – close to several of the most popular wedding venues on the Range.

This is a special place: a short walk leads to a deep fifty metre long swimming hole with basalt rock steps. A little further and you’ll discover the waterfall and rapids. Platypus live in the creek, if you’re an early riser you can almost guarantee to see them.

Little Red Cottage, Reesville

Little Red Cottage External

Little Red Cottage is located in Reesville, about 7 km- from Maleny itself.

The cottage has a spacious verandah with magnificent views of the Conondale Ranges, and also  overlooks a gully often frequented by koalas, due to being in a koala corridor.

The cottage is light and breezy with high ceilings and louvres throughout, and has one private, ensuite bedroom, with a sleeper couch to facilitate extra beds in the living area.

The bathroom is fitted with a spa-bath and the kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooktop and oven, as well as a microwave.  Whilst not marketed as “eco” accommodation strictly-speaking, the water is rainwater, and the water heating is solar.  There’s a ceiling fan in the bedroom and there are screened louvres throughout the cottage for excellent airflow.

Reesville is a particularly beautiful part of Maleny, and from the cottage you can enjoy walks along Reesville Road, where pastures full of farm animals abound, or take a stroll around the corner to Howell’s Knob lookout, for 360 degree views of the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland – a terrific spot for sundowners!

Depending on what you’re after, you could relax at the cottage and enjoy the tranquillity and views, or do some shopping in Maleny’s many boutiques, or Sunday markets, and soak up the Maleny atmosphere at one of the cafes. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of good waterholes to swim in and walks to take, and we’re located just off Reesville Road, a favourite cycling track for cyclists….so bring your bike!

Glass on Glasshouse

Glass on Glasshouse Welcome

Glass on Glasshouse

For many years we have been the proud owners of a beautiful B&B we built on the beautiful NSW south coast.  After 15 years we decided to build some luxury cabins, somewhere beautiful and unspoilt.  After much searching we found the Glasshouse Mountains – such a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and only 50 mins north of Brisbane.  The area is dominated by the fascinating and mysterious Glasshouse Mountains.  It’s an ideal place for bushwalkers, climbers, cyclists, bird-watchers, artists, photographers and those who just need to get away from it all and breathe some fresh country air. It’s also a great base to explore the numerous attractions of the Sunshine Coast.

We have three stunning modern cottages, designed by award-winning Maleny architect Norman Richards. Here you can admire the spectacular mountain views and wild kangaroos through two walls of floor-to-ceiling glass that let you feel as if you’re actually outside.  Sleep soundly in a comfortable king-size bed or relax in a gorgeous freestanding double spa bath. For those romantic winter nights there is a 2-sided eco-smart fire shared between the bathroom and lounge. A daily breakfast basket is included, and there is an on-site café open 7 days. The cottages have won a number of awards including ‘the most romantic accommodation in Queensland’ and were voted the ‘Best B&B in Australia’ two years running. 

Spoil yourself by staying in a stylish and romantic cottage that you won’t want to leave.
