We recently stayed at this fabulous retreat with a big group of friends. We ended a big day of driving on a car rally here for 2 nights. The beds were comfy and warm, the views were great and the fire pit meant we could stay up late outside roasting marshmallows by our fire even as the temperature dropped.
Would highly recommend this beautiful setting to anyone wanting a quiet weekend away with a partner or group of friends.
We stayed in the farm cottage. We spent a friday night and saturday night there. Out for most of the day. Nice and remote.
Quite spacious. Furniture in good condition.
Clean room and crisp linen. Beds were comfortable. Nice comfy pillows
Bathroom was a bit tired. Cold tap on sink not working properly.
Plenty of wood for burning. Nice bowl fire pit available and indoor log burner.
Would recommend staying there for a weekend eps with family or friends. Did not use pool.
We were invited by our friend to have a two night stay in Maleny.
Our friend has booked us the Cathedral cottage, in Jacaranda Cottages complex.
Despite Maleny's breathtaking views and nature, the two night stays at Jacaranda was not pleasant.
The frustration started from the first moment, when we realised that the pictures we saw in Booking.com was a selection of all different cottages. They had actually taken a picture of the best room of each cottage.
So as soon as we get in the cottage we realised that there is no air-condition, no dishwasher, and no fancy room. They have actually put three of our seven beds not even in a room but on the deck!
The free wifi is a joke, you can find the "free wifi" but never can connect to it.
If you are going there on the hot summer, you will find it very difficult to live/sleep in the cottage.
In conclusion, I do not recommend this accommodation as I believe you can have much better options in Maleny with this price and even cheaper.
Jacaranda cottages was picked as we were having a family wedding close by in Maleny on the October long weekend. We booked Cathedral Cottage which had 2 bedrooms (with ensuites) and a sleep out that had 3 single beds. It had a lovely outlook to green grass and cows. We had BBQ breakfast every morning and enjoyed the sun. The cottage had everything we could of needed. The surroundings were very quiet and peaceful. Only 7km from Maleny. Good for a weekend getaway.
