About This Listing
We have 10 acres, 5 minutes drive from Maleny, in a peaceful setting with abundant wildlife. This furnished, 3 bedroom home is such a tranquil and restful retreat. We live in a cabin on the same property. Please note weekend rates apply.
Wake up to the songs of the birds. Watch the wallabies and they will watch you! Take in the infinite stars in the night sky.
There is a fully functional kitchen and up to three bedrooms available for larger groups. Two bedrooms have a queen size bed and one of the other bedrooms has a single and king single.
Guests will have the entire house to enjoy. The pool is a welcome treat in summer, as is the creek. There are beautiful gardens to stroll about in and you are welcome to any abundant fruits or vegetables in the garden....just ask. We have no TV reception!
Interaction with Guests
We are always on hand to make you feel welcome and offer any assistance, but we would like you to feel that this is your space when you stay here.
You will fall in love with Maleny. It is a vibrant and inspiring community with so many wonderfully creative and motivated and caring community members. Its a lot of fun!
There are heaps of cafes, award winning resturants, art galleries, an amazing wood craft centre and organic food stores. The scenery here is stunning.
There is no convenient public transport from our house. If you are fit, you could walk into town (about 4k uphill), but you really need your own car here. There are periodic buses to Landsborough, and a taxi service in town.

We want you to enjoy the serenity of our valley and only ask that you respect that peaceful environment.
Sorry, no pets, because of all the wildlife.

I cannot recommend Lynda and Mark (and their beautiful cottage) enough. We chose Berry Garden for a quiet and relaxing girls weekend away and we got exactly that - from Lynda's warm welcome and the already roaring fire, to the well stocked book shelf and stash of DVDs, it completely hit the mark. Berry Garden is beautifully maintained and the views from the deck are priceless. We will absolutely be back!
Lynda and Mark weren't bestowed "super hosts" for nothing. They were everything nice, had the fire going for our late arrival to be snugged and cosy. Their place was gorgeous and homey. Seeing is believing. We enjoyed our stay very much, with the peace at Berry Garden and wallabies that greeted us during the weekend. Only we went when it was freezing or we could have taken a dip in the pool. Will definitely get them to host again if we are back in Maleny.
We had a fantastic stay at The Berry Garden. I highly recommend this beautiful home in an equally beautiful area.
The house lived up to its description. It is extremely clean and comfortable, with a beautiful kitchen, living room and fireplace, two bathrooms and 3 bedrooms. It is beautifully decorated inside with art and a small library, and the large block of land and gardens are well looked after. There is also a pool, BBQ area and very large deck along the house with plenty of seating and a hammock which was a nice place to relax. The house is equipped with nearly everything you would ever require. The home is located less than 5 minutes from Malaney and is easily accessible by car.
Lynda was there to meet us upon arrival and is a lovely host, she made us feel very welcome. Her communication regarding the booking was excellent and made organising things very easy.
Just a note, as per the description there is no TV reception in the house but broadband internet is available. A Netflix account or some DVD's are probably worth taking along if you want to watch TV.
Thanks for having us Lynda and Mark, we'll definitely come back again!
A beautiful spot, lovely house and great hosts. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a getaway. Thanks so much Lynda and Mark for making your house available. We loved it.
Lynda and Mark were very welcoming and accommodating, which provided a fantastic start to our stay. The house was great, clean and situated in a relaxing environment. We particularly liked seeing the wallabies every afternoon! The house was partly renovated and had plenty of space for the kids to explore, inside and out. By April the pool was pretty chilly, which isn't that bad if you like to be invigorated !!
We tremendously enjoyed our stay in the Berry Garden. Lynda and Mark were lovely and welcoming hosts, the house was roomy and cosy and the gardens were just beautiful. The walk up the creek behind the house turned out to be a wonderful adventure for the children. They also loved looking for macadamia nuts in the garden and spent a fair bit of time cracking them with Lynda's special tool. We had a great time and will be back!
About the Host, Lynda And Mark
Hi, we Lynda and Mark, are from Maleny, Qld. We have lived on our property for twenty years. My interests are gardening and gardening!
Mark loves building and creating. All our kids have flown the nest and we are left with this beautiful old Queenslander overlooking our 10 acre property. We thought it would be a wonderful idea to share this spot with others. It is so quiet and relaxing here, just what we all need to rest and recuperate.
We live in a cabin nearby and are on hand to help out with anything, but you will feel like you have the place to yourselves. Come and stay!
