“Loved it! Home away from home.”
Reviewed 19 May 2012

We stayed 3 weeks (yes 21 nights) whilst we looked for a place to live in the area. Atalanta, the owner, is a gem and so easy going whilst always trying to accommodate your needs. We had a problem with our mobile broadband so Atalanta gave us a cable connection to her internet for the whole time we were there. We only booked for 2 weeks but Atalanta moved things around to let us stay an extra week because we could not move into our new place until then.
We chose it because it was 'pet friendly' because of our cat, but we humans really felt at home here. It is a great location, peaceful, apart from the occasional noise from 'Mrs Goose' (a pet). and really the best of a country stay in Oz We stayed in Picaninny Cottage - great and thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: If you would like a private outdoor spa then Picaniiny Cottage is a 'must'.

This is my third time back to Mooloolah Valley Holiday Houses. I usually base my first or last week of my three week holiday here.
Mooloolah Valley is about 20 mins away from the beaches of Coulandra and a bit further on Mooloolaba. It is a really nice area, with lovely people. Mooloolah is rural with a supermarket, Bootle Shop and a bakery and news agents. Also the main train line to Brisbane for those who want to have a day trip without the drive. Also near about 15 mins from Australia Zoo.

Mooloolah Valley Holidays Houses are really out of this world, the houses are based within the lush trees and grasses of the area and the houses have a shared pool which is cool along private spa pool.

I also had a pizza party night in the terrace area, where we all used the wood pizza oven and made our own pizzas and gin and tonics, which was a magical last night.

Take an alternative first or last week and go to Mooloolah and try out Atlantas place. The houses are unreal and not like staying in a boring hotel or bed and breakfast. Oh at 42 I also went horse riding which Atlanta also offers!! What can I say, it was an unforgettable experience and one that will make me go back for again.

Room Tip: Just check he website, either way you will not be disappointed.

We recently booked frangipani house and could not recommend it highly enough. The house was quirky and individual and just brilliant. it had everything (and more) that you could want or need. The surrounds are just gorgeous and the pool, welcoming and shady. Atalanta is the most welcoming host we have ever come across and went out of her way to make sure we had a great stay. Horse riding was brilliant too! I would recommend this for any one/family wanting to get away from it all for a relaxing break. We will definitely be going back, K

Room Tip: frangipani house is great if more than one family travelling

Reviewed 7 August 2011

We stayed here with my husband and young children. The photos make it look better than it is. It was very close to the road with cars coming and going so it was difficult with little ones and didn't provide for a very relaxing time. It was definitely in need of some TLC - the towels needed replacing and the bedding all needed a good wash. It was a lovely historic house in good repair but the surroundings needed a good cleanup and it would have helped if there was a visitors guide with a map of the property, information about the horseriding etc. My little one kept saying where is the farm as it was advertised under farmstay and I had to explain to him that we were in it :-) Kids call it how it is I guess.

Reviewed 20 January 2010

:y husband, cocker spaniel and I stayed with his parents for 1 week in January 2010. The setting is gorgeous with well maintained gardens, pool, spa and outdoor wood fired pizza oven. The guest houses are finished beautifully and well appointed. There was nothing we could have needed that wasn't there. The owner, Atalanta, is very warm and welcoming and ensured we had everything we needed. I have family in the area which were also welcome to use the facilities. The location, in Mooloolah Valley, is away from the normal tourist areas but close enough to anywhere you want to go on the Sunshine Coast. We will be returning.
