The Lower House is a one-bedroom cottage nestled in bush land overlooking the Lake Baroon in picturesque North Maleny. It is a five-minute drive from Maleny town, but feels miles away. Suitable for couples and solo travellers who relish calm and solitude, and enjoy birdsong and viewing the Milky Way from the deck at night. You may even be lucky to catch Boofa, the resident koala who visits the tallowood tree off the front deck. Wallabies also range over the grounds.

The space
70 Acrewood is a private property located in quiet North Maleny, 5 minutes' drive from the Maleny township. It started as a cattle property and diary farm many years ago. The Lower House is a low-set single story brick cottage on the lower part of the property at the end of a winding road with views of the Baroon Pocket Dam. The Lower House is surrounded by hills and woods, and huge skies, affording guests quiet "me" time. Lounge on the couch and enjoy your music playing over the bluetooth speakers and relax. Watch wallabies feed outside, and the changing sky views.

Maleny Dairies (award winning milk), the Maleny Cheese Factory (award winning cheeses), Maleny Gourmet (gelato and sorbet), Maleny Coffee (coffee beans and ground coffee), Maleny Wagyu (beef) and Brouhaha Brewery (beer) are famous local producers.

I moved to North Maleny after 24 years in Sydney, NSW, enjoying the cool and clear mountain air during the cooler months here, the gentle wildlife on my land, love waking up to birds calling, and appreciate the humour of Queenslanders. I look forward to introducing people to this unique and special place in the fun and quirky Sunshine Coast.
