This past weekend, we had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful family home in Maleny, celebrating our 29th Wedding Anniversary. I simply googled "Places to stay in Maleny" and this place caught my eye. It truly is a beautiful place and I think my photo's just don't do it justice.
As with all our holidays, this little get away was budgeted and saved for, well before actually going away. It makes it that more special as there is no "budget blowout or hangover" to contend with when we get home.
Along with the natural beauty of the surroundings, the actual home is amazing. It has featured in many "Home Beautiful" magazines and it has a wonderful home-y feel about it. The bird life is prolific and it is so relaxing just sitting on the front deck breathing in the tranquility and listening to the bird calls.
The caretaker is a lovely lady who goes by the name Shadow and was welcoming and full of information about the property. The owners, Ian and Jen, have made this beautiful house a home with artistic flair and practical touches in every part of the home.
The kitchen is a chefs dream, with everything at your fingertips to whip up a meal. I love the granite bench tops and the bamboo cupboards, pantries and open storage shelving, they are just so practical while looking beautiful. The family is obviously "foodies"they are just my kind of people!

So, if you are ever up Maleny way, and want a beautiful place to stay to celebrate a special occasion, keep this magical place in mind.
