Immerse yourself in nature. Our comfortable & very private, one-bedroom studio is part of a healing retreat on 12 acres of forest 3.5 kilometres from the delightful community of Maleny, with its cafes, restaurants, bookshops, art, healing and music.

The space

This is a beautiful, private space with views into rainforest, with a wonderful local population of birds and wild animals including wallabies and koalas. It's ideal for a peaceful getaway, a healing and rejuvenation retreat or as a base to explore the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

Please note: this space operates as a Specialised Detox Retreat when not used for Airb'n'b guests - there are NO facilities for cooking or microwaving...please don't ask to bring your own portable camping cooking facilities, our Detox guests really do not appreciate food odours left within the Studio.
We provide a mini fridge (feel free to fill it with your snacks from Maleny's award winning cheese makers & artisan food providers), kettle and toaster plus we happily provide a beautiful range of organic herbal teas blends along with coffee/milk for you to enjoy during your stay.

Guest access

Guests have the entire studio to themselves, with complete privacy. This includes use of a private far-infrared sauna (in the actual studio space) and shared swimming pool (which may be unavailable from time to time due to water supply issues), and access to massage and other health services.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to provide massage and other healing services if booked in advance, otherwise we leave our guests completely alone.

Other things to note

The studio has its own far-infrared sauna for guests' exclusive use. As this is part of a healing retreat, we are happy to arrange massages and sound healing sessions. Please contact us for more information.

Laurel's house was fantastic. The stay was amazing and she was great with communication. This is a great retreat and the house was private and practically in the middle of the bush. Great stay

Laurel and Andy were very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. What you see is what you get which is a clean, peaceful private studio tucked away in the hills of North Maleny. If you have a car then town is only 5 Min down the road with everything you might need (great breakfast, coffee and Iga the rest). Otherwise no real need to leave if you can help it. Oh and the bed was incredibly comfy!

We felt welcomed and everything we needed was provided. The studio is tucked away in the bush with not a hint of traffic noise. We loved the symphony of bird calls and frogs. Felt like we were in a rainforest. It isnt far from the restaurants and shops so that was great too. Very relaxing get away for us and we will be recommending it to friends. So clean and comfortable.

The cabin is very nice and peaceful. There are a good range of tea in the cupboard. All of them are very nice. It was a delight to find a bottle of organic honey in the fridge. What I enjoyed most was sitting on the balcony, listening to the sound of trees and birds, and looking at the change of the clouds in the sky. A good place to read and reflect.

This space is quite magical.. a beautiful, clean, peaceful environment. I was warmly welcomed by Laura, and very easily settled into this gorgeous little house. I welcomed the 'no cooking' agreement as it gave me an excuse to have ready made meals in the fabulous selection of Maleny eateries. And there's plenty you can do with a bar fridge, toaster etc while at home. This was my base for six days in one of my favourite areas and I really don't think I could have found a more ideal spot.
