Destiny's Run Retreat could be your exclusive health retreat, should you choose to stay with us. Your approximately 100m2 retreat is located underneath our home and is a fully self contained unit with its own entrance. Your front door is created by the artist Jack Wilms who has also made the front doors, pews and whale tale altar from the wedding chapel in Montville, as well as lots and lots of wood carvings at Secrets at the Lake. From your bed, you have a direct view on our front garden with a water feature where birds enjoy a drink and a bath. There is an undercover terrace in front of your retreat for you to use, where there is a rocking bench, as well as hanging chairs to relax in. There is a fully equipped kitchen (including oven) should you wish to cook your own meals. You will also find a water kettle, toaster, microwave oven, Nikken Waterfall, Expressi Coffee machine, as well as the Expressi milk frother on the kitchen counter. On the wall in the sitting area you'll find a 50' smart tv including Netflix. There is also a dual usb loading point in the space for easy charging your phone. As we are keen on using healthy things ourselves you will find a salt mill that holds Himalayan Salt, a pepper mill with black pepper kernels, Olive Oil and Red wine vinegar as well as Coconut oil for you to use. You are welcome to use the fresh herbs from the front yard for your cooking during your stay. As we have many more in our back yard, please feel free to ask, as we might be able to supply you with what you want and are happy to share them with you. We happily share produce from our yard and will supply you with whatever is in season/available at the time of your stay. Outside on the terrace there is a gas BBQ for you to use. In the pool area is our sauna which you can book for use. Please contact me to make a reservation. Our award winning pool area is free for use during your stay. There are two devices available to do swim training in our pool. You can do any stroke you prefer for unlimited time without being obstructed, or having to turn around. It's surrounded by a tropical garden, has an outdoor shower, as well as a hammock stand, loungers and hanging chair to relax in. I am a Ka Huna / Lomi Lomi Body worker and our guests can pre-book a massage to have during their stay. Ka Huna Massage is a way to balance body, mind and spirit and is often referred to as the Rolls Royce of massage. This kind of massage can not only assist by lymphatic drainage, improving sore muscles and help relax the body, but it can also work on a deeper spiritual level. If you have never experienced one, you have the unique opportunity to do so whilst staying in our retreat. You do not have to travel anywhere as the massage is done in house. If you have had one before, I am sure you would jump at the chance to have one whilst staying at our exclusive retreat. The cost for 1hr will be $90 and $125 for 90 minutes. I am also a distributor for Young Living essential oils. During my massages I use young living essential oils. To let you experience the oils I would like to offer you a free diffuser session during your retreat.More

Interaction with guests
We are available for our guest although first and foremost we respect their privacy. We have travelled extensively ourselves and also appreciate the joy of interaction. My husband and I originally come from the Netherlands, therefore we are multilingual. We are both fluent in English and Dutch and can get by in French and German should you need any assistance.

About the neighbourhood
Our direct neighbourhood consists of about 35 properties all with acreage, surrounded by parkland. This area used to be a dairy farm, that was transformed into a semi residential area about 15 years ago. It is still classified as rural. It is an area full of rolling hills with beautiful trees. There is always something in flower. There is a walking track going up to the IGA / petrol station in Mapleton (reasonably steep) and it's about a 3 minute drive into the centre of Mapleton. We are a stones throw to lots of wedding venues in Montville and the nearest larger town, Nambour, is about 10 minutes by car, including Nambour Hospital, which is on the way down.
Getting around
The best way to get around our area is by car. There is a bus going between Maleny and Nambour that you can catch on the Nambour-Mapleton Rd, but it doesn't go very often.
