A little bit of Africa in Australia! The "Rondawel" is fully self contained with a beautiful large glass and timber living area, two hexagonal bedrooms and a fantastic bath overlooking the fragrant gardens. Relax by the eco-friendly Stix Fireplace in winter, or enjoy cool summer breezes in summer.

Have a "braai" (BBQ!) on the deck with the branches of the 500 year old figtree touching. It feels like living in amongst the trees! Order a traditional South African breakfast to cook at your leisure or a traditional dinner to enjoy by candlelight in the comfort of your cottage. Have a relaxing aromatherapy massage in the comfort of the cottage, followed by a luxurious bath. Listen to African music, whilst sipping your favourite drop.

Enjoy a meal in one of the many excellent restaurants, browse the art galleries, or go for a rainforest walk. Only a short drive to beautiful beaches. Or just chill out under the figtree. Share with some friends. Ideal for a romantic weekend away. Relax! Revive! Revitalise!

Thank you for a lovely and relaxing time we enjoyed in the Rondawel. Your cooking was sensational. Our friends who joined us on Wednesday thought the hospitality of yourself and staff was fantastic. We intend to return when we come back to the sunshine coast. I intended to purchase your cookbook and forgot. - Andrew & Ann

I stayed at the Rondawel Cottage with my adult children. The two bedroom cottage was well set up with everything needed, including a well equiped kitchen. I loved the views through the many windows and doors to the beautiful trees and gardens outside. The cottage had a full bathroom with a large bathtub and separate shower, plus another separate toilet and vanity. We were supplied with dinner one night - a delicious African menu, which we served ourselves

We stayed a couple of nights in 'The Rondawel'- a spacious two bedroom cottage, perfect for two couples. The bathroom was shared but a separate powder room was a considerate touch. Interesting African bric-a-brac decorated all the rooms. A deck at the back overlooked a beautiful spreading 500 year old fig tree, the Avatar-style branches of which provided a perfect night time roosting place for six resident guinea fowl and a couple of bush turkeys. Maleny Cheese factory is across the road in one direction and a well-stocked quilting shop, art gallery and restaurant in the other direction. The cottages are set up with everything you'd need, and all with an African twist, right down to books and magazines in both English and Afrikaans. We ordered meals both nights and found them tasty with African spices- a welcome change from usual accommodation fare. The deck had a gas barbecue for our use too.

I can'say enough what a beautiful spot of Africa this place is.....decor is beautiful, food is dee-li-cious!!! Host is very pleasant, setting is spectacular!!! It rained most of the time we were there, but it was such a pleasant place to be it didn't matter, we put some wood in the wood stove and enjoyed the coziness of the cabin! I felt guilty being there for such an inexpensive price!!! Would I recommend it again? Without a hesitation! We will be back Matilda!!!

Four of us stayed from 28 - 31 January 2014 in the Rondawel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is great - a few minutes drive into Maleny and not much further to Montville. The cottage is roomy and the beds are very comfortable and the bath is huge. Matilda is a great hostess and has thought of everything to make your visit enjoyable. Beautiful food and we all agreed a return visit is a must.
