Overview

About the property

Located in Reesville, about 6 kms from Maleny on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Views of the Conondale Ranges from the spacious verandah. Private, fully self-contained with high ceilings and louvres, the cottage is light and breezy. One private, ensuite bedroom with spabath, and a sleeper couch in the living area.

Reesville is a particularly beautiful part of Maleny, and from the cottage you can enjoy walks along Reesville Road, where pastures of cows and horses abound, or take a stroll around the corner to Howell's Knob lookout, for 360 degree views of the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland - a terrific spot for sundowners!

Private cottage with a chance of koalas

Little Red Cottage is located in Reesville, about 7 kms from Maleny itself.

The cottage has a spacious verandah with magnificent views of the Conondale Ranges, and also overlooks a gully often frequented by koalas, due to being in a koala corridor.

The cottage is light and breezy with high ceilings and louvres throughout, and has one private, ensuite bedroom, with a sleeper couch to facilitate extra beds in the living area.

The bathroom is fitted with a spabath and the kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooktop and oven, as well as a microwave. Whilst not marketed as "eco" accomodation strictly-speaking, the water is rainwater, and the water heating is solar. There's a ceiling fan in the bedroom and there are screened louvres throughout the cottage for excellent airflow.

Reesville is a particularly beautiful part of Maleny, and from the cottage you can enjoy walks along Reesville Road, where pastures full of farm animals abound, or take a stroll around the corner to Howell's Knob lookout, for 360 degree views of the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland - a terrific spot for sundowners!

Depending on what you're after, you could relax at the cottage and enjoy the tranquility and views, or do some shopping in Maleny's many boutiques, or Sunday markets, and soak up the Maleny atmosphere at one of the cafes. For the more adventurous, there are plenty of good waterholes to swim in and walks to take, and we're located just off Reesville Road, a favourite cycling track for cyclists....so bring your bike!

A breath of fresh air!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after a very relaxing stay over Christmas at The Little Red Cottage. It was everything we’d hoped for and more.The location is beautiful and the views truly idyllic. Breakfast on the verandah under a canopy of trees while listening to the birdlife is breathtaking, and at night with the lights out under a clear sky the stars are spectacular. And yet this serenity is still only about a 10 minute scenic drive from Maleny and 40 mins from beaches.Our hosts Belinda and Denis were utterly charming and invited us into their home for Christmas drinks. The two of us, with our dog, had a fantastic, memorable holiday. We can’t wait to go back again. Highly recommended!

Country Heaven

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our short stay. The only noticeable neighbours were the birds. Remember to take your own supplies as they do not even supply a tea bag or coffee sachet for a quiet cuppa on arrival.

Great location - quiet & peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay! It did the job, clean and simple. I did feel that it could have been so much more to make it home from home. A touch of soft lighting or more throws and cushions, would have been the icing on the cake. The down side when sharing with 4 is there is only one bathroom which is in the main bedroom. The shower does not have a curtain so water does tend to get everywhere, especially with four adults. More towels would have been a bonus !

All in all though it served us well and we went during a fairly wet spell so needed the electric fire on to make it cosy. Would recommend to others!

We loved our stay at the Little Red Cottage - beautifully furnished and comfortable for our famiy of four. Loved the birdsong in the mornings, amazing sunsets and beautiful walks. Maleny is such a lovely little Village!

loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

Friends bought our family of 4 a night away from the city and so we hadn't done any research. What a lovely surprise when we arrived - the location is fab - so peaceful! The house is cosy for 4 - we had our 12 year old in with us on a single bed and 14 year old scored the pull out sofa. As we wanted to be out and about the cottage more than met our needs. The deck is my favourite for a morning coffee and watching the birds!
