A separate fully contained cottage situated on a lush tropical property near Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast, close to National parks, Hiking Trails, The Australian Zoo, Fine Restaurants and Dining and Beautiful Beaches. A Bird Watchers Delight with many species. Set between the ocean and the mountains it's perfect for solo adventurers, couples or for a yoga retreat with lush gardens to enjoy after a day of sightseeing. Arrange private sessions of yoga, mindfulness or meditation session.

The space
Mangalam is a yoga, meditation retreat space offering several classes a week. You're welcome to join a session, however your bungalow is separate and detached with your own carport, so you have privacy if not. You are welcome to use the lower deck which is semi-attached to the house.
Enjoy the birdsong of our many wild feathered visitors, lush tropical gardens and quiet forest ambience.

Guest access
You will have your own carport right outside the cottage which is a separate building overlooking the property. A deck available is a few metres from the Cottage for meals and observing the nature. (it is private but semi-attached to the house). We have a circular driveway so there's easy access and parking. Keep right.

Other things to note
There is a short 1 km of well maintained gravel road (MacDonald Rd) before you enter Country Road which itself is bitumen. Being a no through road it is very quiet and ambient.

During your stay
We will be around as we work from home but it is a big property and we are quiet. If you wish to learn more about the area then we are more than happy to share a herb tea, chai or coffee with you and point you in the right direction.
We have one very small dog called Ralph, who will greet you with a bark but is very sweet, quiet and shy thereafter.
