TESTIMONIALS

Serene, peaceful escape
The name of this home could not be more appropriate. We were running away from our noisy neighbours and we found peace and serenity at Maleny. Situated on the banks of the Obi Obi Creek the property is secluded and quiet. You almost forget the world exists. We had the privilege of staying in the main house. The nights were a bit chilly but the house was so cosy. Freshly laid eggs are supplied and some delicious home made fruit cake and bikkies. Even our fur son loved it. Jen & Ian we’re far away in Berlin but they still checked in on us and left us some beautiful messages. We will definitely be returning to Runaway to Maleny.

An Incredible stay with a rainforest at your doorstep
This place is a little slice of heaven on earth. Situated above a river surrounded by a rainforest canopy, the sound of flowing water can be heard from any room in this home, with giant windows and sliding doors you are able to truly appreciate your surroundings.

Go exploring and you will find your own personal sauna by the river's edge- definitely a must! For those more adventures types, there's even a flying fox that takes you across the river to explore the other bank!

The living quarters are incredible. Polish timber floors, a huge bed (and I mean huge), state of the art kitchen, twin showers, a freestanding egg bath that easily fits two and wait for it an actual grand piano!

But what took my breath away was the Shala, which is beautiful and functional.

There's a peacefulness to this place, achieved in equal parts by the landscape and the curated spaces Jen and Ian have made.

You don't just Runaway to Malaney, a piece of you wants to stay forever.

Tranquil Paradise
Ian and Jen, where do I start! Ian and Jen are such a wonderful couple and such lovely hosts! My sister flew in from Canada to celebrate her birthday with my husband and I and we chose Iand and Jen's gorgeous home to bring in this special day. They went over and beyond to make all of us feel so welcome and special. They even made my sister a special birthday hamper with homemade cakes and cookies, her favorite wine, candles and other thoughtful items. We stayed in the main house which is on their gorgeous property. The house is so tastefully decorated, with a massive fireplace, a grand piano, fantastic views, a huge well stocked kitchen with everything you would possibly need right from home made muesli to all kinds of spices and oils. And the bedroom looks like something out of a magazine. The deck from the bedroom overlooks a river and has stunning views of their beautiful property. The bed itself can comfortably fit three adults. We were all blown away with the architecture of the place and the warm hospitality. We also thoroughly enjoyed the friendly visits from Pasha, the cat. All in all an absolute winner of a place, don't think twice just book a holiday with Ian and Jen and you will not regret it!

WOW WOW WOW
This property is truly amazing, easily the best place I have stayed at and am counting down the days until I can go back! My partner and I spent 4 nights here and loved every minute of it. From waking up to the sound of the creek running, reading in hammocks, waiting in anticipation to see which door Pasha The Magic Door Opening Cat would appear from, collecting fresh eggs, the fireplace, the views, the silence....I could go on and on. It is a beautiful part of the world and Ian, Jen and gorgeous Shadow are the best hosts you could ask for!!
