"Experience a taste of the Mediterranean in the heart of Maleny."

Come and unwind in our beautiful, award winning, Mediterranean inspired Eco “Cob” cottage. Grab a good book, light the fireplace and snuggle up surrounded by our cosy cob walls in winter, or delight in the abundant birdlife and leafy surrounds on our spacious deck in summer. Take some time out and discover the 'Maleny magic" for yourself in the most magical home in Maleny.

The space
Be spellbound by the light filtering through the colourful glass in our cob walls and allow your imagination to run wild as you experience the unique hand-made ambience of the house. Be transported to Gaudi’s Barcelona as you gaze into our murals. Take a short stroll to our magical town to connect with local artisans, or simply let yourself relax and unwind in our beautiful home.
The clever use of hand-picked salvaged materials also adds to the uniqueness of the space. Cobhearthome even contains the doors from the old Maleny Community Centre and timber from Brisbane’s Brett’s Wharf! Fun fact: Cob is an ancient building technique which has been used since prehistoric times. Come and stay in our modern cob home and experience a time honoured building technique first hand.
At Cobhearthome, guests can choose between organic cotton and wool, gel memory foam or traditional pillows to ensure the perfect night's sleep atop of our luxurious, pocket spring, pillow top mattresses. Comfortable high quality linen is also provided. A private bathroom comes with soft bath towels and luxurious all natural body wash, shampoo and conditioner. The bathroom contains a walk-in shower and a bath to suit all tastes.
The guest accommodation at Cobhearthome contains two queen rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, a lounge area with a flat-screen TV with DVD player, and reverse cycle air-conditioning. Cobhearthome provides premium tea and coffee, a glass kettle and pure filtered water from our locally made pottery water filter. We also house a swap/share library and a range of traditional board games. The guest suite at Cobhearthome is fully self-contained. Cobhearthome also provides both indoor and outdoor dining areas with an elevated leafy outlook towards the Obi Obi Creek. At 450m above sea level, guests can either relax near the log fire place in the winter or enjoy the cool mountain air in summer.
Gourmet breakfast hampers are available upon request. Romantic couple’s hampers including local cheese and wine can also be supplied. Breakfast hampers include local produce where available including creamy Maleny Dairies milk, local or home grown fruit, fresh eggs from our chickens and freshly home baked bread. Complimentary treats are also provided such as all-natural homemade cookies and muffins. Gluten-free alternatives can also be arranged upon request. Guests can also make use of our extensive edible garden and say hello to the neighbouring horses.

Cobhearthome is situated in the heart of Maleny within walking distance to the Maleny town centre, Maleny Showgrounds and the Obi Obi Creek. We are also just a short drive to popular attractions such as Gardner’s Falls, Maleny Wines, Maleny Cheese Factory, Maleny Dairies, Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Maleny Botanic Gardens.
Within five minutes there are a wide range of restaurants, coffee shops, art and antique shops. The Maleny area is home to numerous National Parks offering a huge choice of walking trails. There is also a stunning nine-hole golf course in Maleny for those golfing enthusiasts. The famous Australia Zoo and the amazing Glasshouse Mountains are also less than a twenty minute drive away. For those who wish to travel further afield we are only 30 minutes from the Sunshine Coast beaches, a similar distance to the world famous markets at Eumundi and Noosa is less than one hour away.
