“Annette & Dave”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Sonya and John could not do enough for us; they were excellent hosts and we had a wonderful salmon dinner (cooked to perfection). Thanks John. The room and ensuite were spotless and very comfortable. Breakfast was most enjoyable served on the Gazebo in the fresh air overlooking the grounds. So peaceful. We met some lovely German guests during our stay so it shows that this B&B has a great reputation.

We booked a one night stay in the Shephard room to attend a wedding at Flaxton Gardens. Communication with Sonya to arrange an earlier check in was easy and accommodated without any fuss.

From the moment we arrived John and Sonya were the most amazing hosts. Showing us to our room and the private bathroom which is just across the hall. The room was spacious with a king size bed and access to their balcony with stunning views.

There is no mobile phone reception however John advised they had free wifi for guests.

We had intended to walk to the wedding venue however John kindly offered to take us and pick us up when the wedding had finished. We were very thankful for this especially as it was pouring with rain.

Breakfast was delicious with fresh orange juice, coffee, fruit, muesli, yoghurt and a cooked breakfast. Was also very enjoyable talking to the other guests and John and Sonya. We were given some avocados from their trees as we departed.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay thanks John and Sonya and appreciate the above and beyond service you provide.

Bec and Kim.

A very enjoyable stay. Sonya and John are excellent hosts with good knowledge of attractions and restaurants in the area. Breakfast each day was delicious. The room and bathroom were comfortable and spotless. The location and gardens are quite beautiful. It was a quiet and tranquil break away for us.

Room Tip: The suite with a private section of balcony has a beautiful outlook

This place was such a lucky find! My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay for a wedding in Maleny and lucky for us that we found this lovely B&B. It was no trouble at all to have an early check in so that we had time to get ready for the wedding. The room and amenities were immaculate, comfortable and spacious; we had the best sleep after a big night. Breakfast the next day was wonderful and it was great to have a wander through the grounds. Our hosts, John and Sonya, were great! They were welcoming, attentive and considerate; you simply cannot find better hosts. We'll definitely stay here again.

Sonya and John are a wonderful couple who could not do enough for us during our stay. So friendly. They even drove us to the wedding reception we were attending and collected us at the end of the night. Amazing service. Accommodation was extremely comfortable and surrounding grounds just delightful. Breakfast was included and the avacado grove special was so delicious. Thanks again John and Sonya.

We where having our 43 third Wedding Anniversary, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. As it was the middle of the week we ended up with the whole house to ourselves. What a lovely couple John & Sonya where. We where spoilt rotten and what a beautiful house to stay in. The food was so beautiful, and sitting around the fireplace with a glass of John's port, well you can't get any better than that. Sonya and my wife had so much in common, as they both had there first children at the same hospital. I cannot thank them enough for a beautiful stay and they where the perfect hosts. We will be back again, for another Anniversary , and can't wait for it to happen. We recommend having the mid-week special, which is top value for money.

Room Tip: We recommend the shepherds room, for walking out onto the open Verandah looking over the beautiful A...

We stayed in the Sharwill suite and were made extremely welcome by our hosts John and Sonya. I would thoroughly recommend Avocado Grove to anyone looking for a slow-paced and completely relaxing weekend. The location is very handy for nearby Montville restaurants and cafes and the fabulous Kondalilla National Park - the rock pool at the Kondalilla Falls is breathtaking. John prepares a tasty home-made muesli with seasonal fruits and makes a delightful cooked breakfast with bacon, eggs and home-grown avocados. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to the next time we return.

Room Tip: Sharwill Suite is downstairs in more private location.
