“Lovely location & great hospitality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2013

Like many others, we stayed overnight for a wedding a Flaxton Gardens. This B&B is perfectly located and the generous offer of a lift to and from the venue helped make our night.
Despite the poor weather, the breakfast and hospitality were wonderful and the view from our breakfast table was still gorgeous. A warm coffee, bacon and eggs, and views of the valley soaking up the falling rain bring wonderful reminders of home.
Thanks again John and Sonya, we hope to get another excuse for a hinterland visit.

Room Tip: The Sherwil Suit provides a little more privacy as it is downstairs and has a private balcony.

We are SO glad we decided to stay at Avocado Grove for a night to celebrate Valentine's! The house itself is charming, as was our room (right down to the cozy bathrobes provided) but really it's the warm hospitality of John and Sonya that brings it all together. You couldn't ask for better hosts. I'm sure this couple have been asked all the same questions before and on many occasions but they were very happy to open up to us about their home, family and life's experiences ... two friendly, charismatic people who obviously love running their B&B. Breakfast was sublime and we enjoyed exploring the avocado orchard which was est. in the 1940s. A lovely mini-get away for us Sunshine Coasters!

Avocado Grove is definitely the place you want to be for any kind of get away - whether an event is on, you've planned some weekend trips or just want a relaxing time away. John and Sonya are the best hosts you could want. The rooms and the atmosphere are enjoyable and their little touches and inclusions for your stay make it all very special. Definitely recommended and we will definitely be returning time and again.

For mant years we have been fascinated by, and enjoyed with our family, the beaches and restaurants of the Sunshine Coast. Though we have visited the Blackall Ranges on occasions, this surprise visit (for my wife) to Flaxton and stayover at Avocado Grove for two days was just the best decision for a balanced holiday between the beaches and the mountains.

John and Sonja were the perfect hosts providing excellent information on local attractions, the highest standard of accomodation and cuisine which could not be faulted.

We long for the opportunity to enjoy the warmth of the open fire in winter and to experience more of the wonderful rainforest walks this area has to offer.

Room Tip: This B&B offers three rooms and a suite all of which are tastefully decorated, extremely clean a...

We were in Flaxton for a wedding at Flaxton Gardens and stayed at Avocado Grove for the Friday and Saturday night. Our stay was outstanding and very comfortable and private in the downstairs Sharwil Suite with its own private outdoor dining area. Breakfast was second to none. John and Sonya were most gracious hosts, very friendly and accommodating. The setting is delightful with views of the avocado trees and hills in the distance. John kindly provided transport to and from the wedding venue and was also able to suggest some lovely local walking tracks. We will definitely be returning to Avocado Grove.

Room Tip: The downstairs suite has its own entrance and private outdoor space.
