The Falls is a great place to stay. This was our second time there. The first time, my husband and his groomsmen stayed in the Manor House prior to our wedding. It was wonderful!

This time, we stayed in a cottage. It was absolutely divine. Allan and Aryna take hospitality to a new level – they think of everything! The cottage was delightful, with a beautiful bed and spa bath overlooking the verdant valley and hills below. It was so private and secluded too, we really felt like we’d gotten away from it all. It was so mesmerising sitting on the deck and watching the mist move through the valley, hearing the chirping of the birds, and hearing the odd happy moo of a cow. We were so relaxed!

Allan and Aryna take great pride in making sure their guests have a great time. Upon arrival, we were given a beautiful basket of provisions – bread, 1L of Maleny Dairy milk, a big container of lovely juice, Maleny Dairy yoghurts, lots of bacon, museli, a selection of cereals, lots of eggs, mushrooms and some fruit – kiwi, apple banana (and other things that I’m sure I’ve forgotten – we could only eat so much you see). We were so set! This meant we could wake up whenever we wanted, and cook ourselves up a feast! The cottage has a great kitchen, but we decided to cook on the deck overlooking the valley.

Dotted around the cottage were also delicious chocolates. And there was some lovely port to indulge in.

The bathroom is great – a rainhead shower! Lovely linen to boot. And very clean

Allan was so wonderful, one night we had gotten all dressed up to go out to dinner, when the heavens opened. He came down to get us in his car (as the walk to our car through the glorious rainforest boardwalk would have drenched us).

We even got a beautiful gift of a local pineapple on departure. So sweet!

Allan and Aryna are lovely people and I’d recommend that you meet them. It would be a proper review, if I didn’t mention their delightful, and beautiful, kitty cat – Dasha! So lovely

Finally, the Falls is just a stone’s throw from Kondalilla Falls – beautiful rainforest! While you stay there, definitely go down and look at the waterfalls and the rockpools.

In summary, we’ll definitely be back. It’s hard to find accommodation that is this wonderful, which such fabulous hosts.

While you’re in the area, get some cheese from Maleny Dairies, and enjoy it on the deck!

Hi Sarah
You have written a book!
It was lovely to welcome you both back to The Falls as cottage guests - with you having stayed here the first time in the Manor House over your wedding!
It's a real privilege when brides and grooms enjoy their wedding stay so much that they return for anniversaries! (Just to clarify - The Falls does not do major wedding receptions but we do frequently host bridal groups, groom's groups, family groups and couples attending area weddings. We are a quiet, secluded rural retreat and jealously guard that reputation!)
We are so pleased you both enjoyed your return visit - as a romantic couple in a secluded rainforest cottage!
Best regards
Alan and Aryna

We spent our 4 day and 4 night honeymoon, at this quality cottage stay . The staff Aryna & Alan were the loveliest hosts and provided professional and quality service. Tamarind cottage provided a private and relaxing setting for the two of us. Warm croissants or an occasional treat was delivered to us every morning. This retreat is one we certainly recommend for people to experience for themselves, as it was the best holiday escape either of us have enjoyed. Thanks Aryna & Alan!

The cottages tucked in the bush were amazing! Beautiful fittings and everything you might need for a quiet getaway. Spa bath, shower, cooking facilities, tv and air-con.
The owners are so friendly and make a mean cup of coffee (using locally roasted coffee beans).
I will definitely be going back for another visit so I can see all the things I didn't get to see this time.

Room Tip: All of the cottages are lovely and quiet.

Hi Francesca
Thanks so much for taking the time to pen a review. We're very pleased you enjoyed the coffee! We may well put up a sign outside reception: "Come in and smell the beans" to emphasise our complimentary espressos!
We frequently host Cottage and Manor House guests attending area weddings. Often, like you, they are so taken with the Sunshine Coast hinterland that they become regular return visitors!
We'd love to see you back this way again soon!
Warm regards
Alan and Aryna

Stayed in the cottages, absolutely beautiful private retreat. Amazingly friendly owners who go above and beyond for you (and make the best coffee ever)! Incredibly generous breakfast. Will most certainly be returning in the future!

Hi dB
Thanks for your concise endorsement of The Falls.
We provide complimentary cappuccinos / espressos to guests - one of the 'differences' we strive to offer as enhancements to our guest experience! Glad you so enjoyed our breakfast offering!
We will be privileged to see you again!

This place was the most beautiful setting for a friends birthday. We were so well looked after with fresh croissants, bacon, eggs etc to cook for breakfast. Myself & 3 other girlfriends had our own bedroom & ensuite each. Our hosts Alan & Aryna were very friendly & welcoming & made sure that our weekend was very memorable. A fantastic place operated by special owners. It had all the small touches such as fresh roses, chocolates...We could not recommend a stay at The Falls enough...this place is fantastic! We can’t wait to go back...

Hi Megan
Thanks very much for your thumbs up for The Falls.
It was delightful to meet and host you all. We do many birthday stays. From couples staying in one of our rainforest cottages, to small groups of close friends, to family celebrations of up to 24 guests staying onsite! And they are all special!
Thanks again for coming up. It will be our privilege to host you again in the futire.
Best regards
Alan and Aryna
