“Beautiful stay”

We had such a lovely time at Jen and Ian's home near Maleny. I will list a top ten of our favourite aspects of our stay. 10. The beautiful Obi Obi Creek that passes through the bottom of the property. We spent an hour walking and skipping along the rocks, listening to the creek whooshing through, enjoying the water hole. 9. Sitting in the "bamboo chapel" and listening to the creak of bamboo, looking up at the sun rays filtered through the leaves. 8. Swaying red poppies at the entrance and hundreds of other plants and trees all around. 7. Nearby to all the local spots we had hoped to visit...Maleny, Mary Cairncross Park, Maleny Dairies and Maleny Cheese. 6. A beautiful bathroom with goldfish swimming beside the shower. A first for us! 5. A very comfortable bed with soft, organic cotton linens, chocolates. A wonderful night's sleep. 4. The peaceful BBQ and outdoor eating area. Perfect for a romantic dinner, bottle of wine and conversation long into the night. 3. The opportunity to play a baby grand piano in a corner of the house looking out onto the woods and creek below. The space beckons music, lightness and uplifting of spirit. 2. The meditation and yoga space. 1. And at the top of the list the beautiful hosts, Jen and Ian.

Huge thank you to Beautiful Jen and Ian and their fabulous family team! An absolute dream location with warm , genuine and excellent hospitality to make our weekend so precious.
Look after from the first contact, nothing too much to ask and certainly a perfect hide away. We would recommend this property to anyone and have already raved about it with my photos on FB.
Thanks again, we will be back and also keen to visit your property in the city, it looks Charming too. Much love Di

We loved Ian and Jen! And we loved this incredible property and all of its treasures. What an idyllic place to retreat to. The hosts are interesting, welcoming, special people and I definitely recommend small groups, families and couples to stay here.

“AMAZING, A MUST STAY FOR ANYONE”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

“Unbelievable experience from the first phone call, to the follow up email once we had returned home. Runaway to Maleny and its wonderful owners are a class above. The property itself is truly out of a dream, nestled in the forest with a flowing lake and beautiful grounds and the room itself was amazing, and everyone involved in the property from the owners, Jen and Ian, to the staff and son were delightful people who really made the stay even more special. We would not hesitate in recommending Runaway to Maleny as one of the best accommodation’s that you will ever stay at.”
