The kitchen is fully equipped with 4 gas burners & an electric oven + a microwave oven if needed, and all cooking utensils etc. The gardens are established 30 years, and the gardens are now opening for guests to stay. Ideal for a weekend escape or longer stay to explore the Sunshine Coast and hinterland. The plant collection featured on 5 different TV shows & is unique! Everything in the guesthouse is in new condition, & the facility was purpose built for complete comfort and enjoyment. The gardens cover 6 acres with concrete paths throughout. Over 10,000 rare plants on display. The guesthouse is well away from our residence and is quiet, secluded
and very private, with its own parking area for up to 4 vehicles. Each master bedroom has it's own spacious on-suite attached. There are 2 separate outdoor dining areas, one under cover, the other in the garden. The sealed private car park area can park up to 4 vehicles. The high speed internet access and 3 new smart TV's allow movies to be watched in each bedroom and the lounge room at the same time, ideal for children with different tastes to their parents! The 3rd bedroom with 2 bunk beds has its own heating & overlooks the car park area.. The free escorted garden tour is a highlight for almost every guest and elevates the stay to a unique and memorable experience that has no equal!
In the colder months a fire pit is provided just outside the guesthouse for outdoor enjoyment. The close by water pond has frogs that sing to guests on summer evenings! The total experience is better than words can describe!

Ilkley, Queensland, Australia

Very quiet rural setting, 5 minutes drive off the Bruce Hwy & Forest Glen, close to everything the Sunshine Coast has to offer, without the noise or crowds. The guesthouse is 300 metres from the road so almost total quiet except for the sound of nature. The small 'town' of Eudlo with general store & coffee shop is 5 minutes drive away. Superb restaurants 10 min.s away in Buderim.

I am interested in spirituality, metaphysics and the brain sciences as well as loving plants, animals and people.I was previously a tax agent and Chartered Accountant 35 yrs ago and then changed ,& began teaching others how to unlock their brain & mind's hidden potential so they could enjoy more success and happiness in their life. Clare trained as a teacher & now does volunteer work for a local charity. We have a nursery and other businesses. We opened our guesthouse so we could meet and enjoy new 'friends' and share our now world famous garden with others.
