“A Gem in Palmwoods”
Reviewed 1 April 2007

We were delighted to find this accommodation by chance at the end of day of touring in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. The cottages are on Citrus Road, about a 10 minute drive from Palmwoods.

A sign advertising the accommodation marked the entrance to a long gravel drive leading to the property. The entrance is at an angle to the sign and could be missed- this would be a shame. The owners, Shelley and Peter, immediately made us very welcome and offered us accommodation in Duckpond Cottage. As the name suggests, it is located near a small pond. The property was constructed in tune with the environment, using recycled materials. The front door led to a roomy open plan lounge, bedroom and small kitchen area. There was a refridgerator and cooking facilities and utensils which were entirely adequate for a self catering holiday. Tea, coffee and fresh milk were supplied. The floors and walls were wooden. The lounge had CD and DVD players.

Shelley and Peter recommended us to eat at Café de Orient, a Vietnamese restaurant in Palmwoods. This was an excellent suggestion. Before leaving for the evening, we were presented with our choices for breakfast the next morning which included an extensive choice of breads, juices, fruit salad or a cooked breakfast.

We arrived back to the harmonious sound of insects and encountered a possum and a frog on the path to the cottage.

We awoke to the cheerful sound of birds and the light streaming in through the windows which lined the top of the timber walls. Breakfast was served in our cottage. The property is set in extensive forrested grounds. I am sorry that our stay was so short as this felt like an ideal location for unwinding in beautiful surroundings.
