We loved our 4 night stay in the Sallywattle cottage. The cottage was comfortable and well laid out, with great views down a little valley to a dam and surrounded by trees. We could have been miles from anywhere it was so quiet and peaceful. Saw a male Satin Bowerbird just outside the bedroom window, which was a treat, and had a few visits from a handsome Butcherbird. Loved having the fire at night and on chilly mornings. This is a great place to use as a base to explore Maleny and the Blackall Range area. Would love to come back.

My family and I stayed here just recently, along with two other families. We stayed in the Farm House (which can cater for 10 people).

The farm house is quite nice with all the modern cons (dishwasher, coffee machine, tv/dvd player, 2 stereos, full laundry etc).

The pro's
This place was that it had everything we needed - plus a yard for the kids to run around in - it was lovely.

The deck was also lovely to sit out on to enjoy a drink and the view.

Only suggestion I would make would be to add a fireplace in the loungeroom for ambience and coseniess (as it stands it is in the dining room - it heats the whole of the house if all doors/windows kept closed).

The con's
There weren't really many apart from dated crockery (not a problem) and door knobs falling off in one of the rooms - again, no problem.

I would most definitely recommend this place to families!

Room Tip: Great for families! 4 bedrooms (one with king size bed, two with queen size bed and one with 2 sets of bunk beds).

Rosegum cottage was the ideal place to remember just who we are without the jobs, the mortgage, the kids. The fire was ready to light when we arrived, the cottage was spotless and charming and the only sounds were those nature intended. Our intention was to spoil ourselves with dining out throughout the stay but Whispering Valley changed our thinking. On our first night we almost regretted booking to eat and listen to jazz at the Upfront Club and having to leave our cosy fireside. Fortunately Maleny is a great place to find delicious fare to match a very nice red from the hotel bottle shop so we stayed in and had to restock the firewood from the ample supply beside our pathway. Thoroughly recommend this place for a cosy winter getaway!

Room Tip: We loved Rosegum for the space and having the spa in the bathroom - just our preference. All rooms have a great view.

I stayed in the farm house for the 2 nights leading up to my Wedding along with all my bridesmaids. The farmhouse was huge and fit the 10 of us comfortably. Amazing deck area with great views. Very relaxing and love the donkeys and lama.

My husband and I stayed here in Silky Oak Cottage over the New Year weekend and had a fabulous relaxing stay. I was a bit apprehensive about no airconditioner and only a ceiling fan in the living section, since Brisbane was experiencing 30 degree heat. Amazingly we didn't even turn the fan on once as Maleny is generally cooler than Brisbane and the cottage is designed facing the right way to catch the breezes. Even when there were no breezes that came through the louvered windows, the cottage remained cool being shaded by the trees. I want to go back when it's cooler to use the fire though.

Silky Oak had an amazing view down to the dam (see pic). You can swim in the dam and while we were there one couple enjoyed it. We didn't really see anyone or hear anyone except for the dam swim (which was unobtrusive) and another couple when out walking. Everyone is there for the same reason to relax so it was generally quiet. One couple had an argument in the driveway loud enough for the whole of Maleny to hear, but once they got that off their chest life was quiet again.

The bathroom was adequate (not outstanding) with soft white towels and clean. Be prepared for a brown water spa though as it comes from the tank. At first a little disconcerting, but it was clean tank water and still relaxing.

Kitchen was well appointed with no oven and the outside weber BBQ took awhile to get really hot. Fortunately we used the BBQ New Years Eve so we were in no hurry to eat.

There were only minor issues during our stay - blue seed pods would drop onto the roof all the time including the middle of the night which could be quite loud; there was a dead cockroach on the floor with 2 live grasshoppers we could never catch in the bathroom; they didn't have any gladwrap in the cottage (but we didn't ask for any either). These are my only gripes which are so minor, so really it was a wonderful 4 nights and would definitely return here and stay in Silky Oak - I think it's the best cottage looking at the location on the mud map of the other ones.

Room Tip: Silky Oak has a gorgeous view of the dam

Thank you for your feedback which we welcome. We have taken your advice and added the glad wrap, cut back the trees where we think the berries are falling but not enough to take away the ambience. We have also checked the barbeque and found a blockage which we have now fixed so hopefully it wont take as long next time. The water was stained as a result of the tannin from the trees which can happen during the summer months. We try very hard to find a balance between the environment and your comfort and can assure you that the water is clean and directly from mother nature. On our bushland visitors they are seasonal and at times can be difficult to keep totally out. We try very hard to keep our visitors out with screens , we have bugspray and personal insect repellent available and you are welcome to call us anytime and we will come and extract them. Thank you again we hope next time you visit you will go away with a five star experience.
