419 Mountain View Road, Maleny 4552
Maleny Orchard Farmhouse is set within 70 acres of rainforest, orchard gardens and grassy paddocks. To get to the property you turn off Mountain View Road and descend down your own 400 metre driveway through established elk horn laden rainforest. As you reach the lower part of the driveway you will take in glimpses of the dam to your left and the orchard to your right. Lucky ones will see the peacocks and guinea fowl scratching in the undergrowth. The Farmhouse has a large courtyard at the front but most guests will spend their time enjoying the view from the back of the house. Rolling lawns enable a panoramic view from the Pacific Ocean, Bribie Island, Redland Bay, across the iconic Glasshouse Mountains all the way to the Somerset catchment. The house itself is very spacious comprising of a Master bedroom with king size bed and ensuite, 2 queen size bedrooms, a three bed children’s room and a queen size sofa bed in the lounge. If you are struggling to fit the whole family in we also have a travel cot and a roll out camp bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need for self catering and there is BBQ on the back patio. We have a dining room and large living area with space for the family to spend time together complete with a log burning fire for winter and air-conditioning for summer. There is a large selection of books, DVDs and games available to use.
The township is 4 kilometers away which makes for an excellent 45 minute walk up McCarthy Road past the Dairy to Maleny’s famous cafes and craft shops. At the top of our driveway is Tiffany’s wedding venue and next door but one to them is King Ludwig’s German Restaurant. 5 kilometers down Mountain View Road is Mary Cairncross Reserve, Visitor’s Centre and Cafe which is well worth a visit.
