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!
