“Heavenly creekside haven”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our hosts, Jen and Ian, whilst they were away during our stay in their special sanctuary, were so helpful and sweet in the lead-up to our visit. Theirs is a beautiful, peaceful and meticulously well thought out haven which you can sense has been created with love in every nook and cranny. It’s truly a very special place and we feel privileged to have been able to stay there, even if just for a few nights. The kids fell in love with the hosts cat Pasha (who slept with them each night) and the family dog Hamish was very entertaining. Why? You'll find out for yourself once you stay there!

We loved the pretty gardens, bamboo chapel, the thrilling flying fox across the beautiful creek and the entire property – we definitely want to come back when it’s a bit warmer so we can take advantage of swims in the creek.

Maleny and Landsborough townships are both very close if you don't feel like cooking and the kids enjoyed outings to Australia Zoo, the Maleny markets and Mary Cairncross park, all very close and accessible.

It is impossible not to fall in love with this place....thank you Jen, Ian, Shadow, Pasha & Hamish for having us share your secret garden!!!

It was just so lovely to know that Anita, Steven, Ava and Archie were enjoying Runaway while we were away. They communicated so openly and lovingly about their enjoyment of the place that we just knew they were being properly cared for and their adventurous spirits were being thoroughly satisfied. Such beautiful folk we would welcome back in an instant.

“The most beautiful location”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Had the most perfect weekend her at Jen and Ian's. They were the most perfect hosts and very helpful about information regarding the area of Maleny. The house and surrounds were beautiful. The gardens and surrounding creek were worthy of the many photos we took. This was the perfect escape to another world.

We truly enjoyed every moment of hosting Savita and Raj. These were the most respectful acknowledging, positive, friendly open people any owner could ever ever wish for in their home. Wonderful smart intelligent young folk who truly inspired us. We would be delighted to ever open our home to them most certainly

“Wonderland!”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What an amazing, magical place! It was like a wonderland for our two children.
Even though we only stayed for one night we felt well rested and relaxed. We will return and stay for longer next time.
The kids did not want to leave. They were so busy exploring, flying, swinging, jumping and swimming that they had no time for iPads, now isn't that refreshing!
I highly recomend getting a massage whilst there as the masseuse is amazing!
As for the owners Jen and Ian they went out of their way to make are stay one of the best family experiences we have ever had. :) Kristin, Julio, Diego and Mila.
