Guest Comments June 2021
5/5: Google My Business Page, June 2021: This place is hands down the best place we have stayed in. We loved the hospitality, surrounds, views and privacy but the food was next level. The best food I have had in my whole life. I can’t wait to go back!
Guest Comments May 2021
5/5: Tripadvisor, May 2021: Fantastic break. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Country House at Hunchy. The premises are off the beaten track but very handy to Montville – which is part of the charm. They are clean and spacious. The easterly view is magnificent! Hosts, Paul & Karin, are personable and welcoming. Meals were unbelievable – Karin is a fabulous cook. You certainly wont regret staying – rather, I think you will regret passing up an opportunity to stay at The Country House!
Guest Comments April 2021
5/5: Google My Business Page, April 2021: The Country House at Hunchy was superb. The accommodation was clean, modern, and comfortable. Our hosts were friendly but professional. Karin’s cooking was delicious and generous. The venue is out of the main stream yet handy to the entire area of Maleny/Montville. I highly recommend The Country House at Hunchy
5/5: Google My Business Page, April 2021: The Country House at Hunchy is a venue all discerning travellers should experience. Five star plus more luxury accommodation at its best. Unsurpassable cleanliness. Food made from scratch, constructed and displayed to Michelin standards. Hosts urbane, amiable and solicitous without obsequiness but with measured humour. Just book it, you will not be disappointed
Personal Email, April 2021: “5 stars. Totally out of the box. Without doubt this is the best B&B we have stayed in in our collective 148 years. Accommodation spacious, luxurious and aesthetically stunning, band box clean. Food – a cook’s dream- organic, from scratch stocks, cereals, soups, pastries, jams & sauces- Michelin star rating at its best. Hosts amiable, very solicitous, intelligent & witty without being intrusive. We could not recommend this venue more highly, Col & Patsy, Stayed with friends, stayed in April 2021”
10/10: bookingdotcom, April 2021: Perfect relaxed luxury. Paul and Karin are attentive hosts and made us feel cared for. The food and service is 5-star. The cleanliness of the property is immaculate. Despite the poor rainy weather we enjoyed our cosy, relaxing stay
Guest Comments March 2021
5/5: Facebook Page Review/Recommendation, March 2021: We have just had the most memorable, relaxing and enjoyable stay at The Country House at Hunchy. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel welcome, and several little touches throughout our stay (such as checking the weather and road conditions for our 6-hour drive home on day of departure) made it obvious that Paul and Karin care about their guests on a personal level, not just as a source of income. Their excitement when I proposed to my partner at dinner was genuine – I’m pretty sure Karin was even more excited than my partner was – and I’m very grateful Paul was on hand to film the moment for our families at literally a moment’s notice. The rooms were perfect – I’m normally getting antsy after about 3 nights in a hotel, but I comfortably stayed here 5 and was devastated to have to leave after that! Spacious, beautiful and homely rooms with stunning and peaceful views from the Rainforest suite in which we stayed. The 3-course breakfast each day was of course a highlight. All the food tasted amazing, and the pride in which Karin described each dish and the locally-sourced produce used was obvious. Most days we struggled to get through all 3 courses, and found ourselves skipping lunch, we were that well-fed and satisfied from breakfast! Paul’s knowledge of the surrounding areas was second to none and helped us make the most of our stay. And of course the location was perfect… away from all the hustle and bustle from the city life, but less than half an hour away from almost everything you could imagine doing on a holiday. Kondalilla Falls, Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve, Bird World at Maleny, Rick’s Garage at Palmwoods, and Australia Zoo were the main attractions we managed to squeeze into our stay, all of which were located less than half an hour away. I honestly can’t wait to stay there again. Can’t recommend highly enough.
10/10: TripAdvisor, March 2021: A Country Palace by far. We had the pleasure of being spoilt by lovely people called Karin and Paul over 4 nights. Their Country House is Five Star plus in the decor and lights. They spoilt us from sunrise to sunset, nothing wanting. We had the pleasure of staying in the Bottlebrush Suite that had everything from wines to robes. As for the three course breakfasts, oh wow. As a must you need to have a dinner there as Chef Karin is the best. She sources all the local products and serves up a extensive menu that suits all tastes. Not to forget Paul, a man with heaps of knowledge of the local area, and once he knows your coffee favourite makes it the same way every day. We felt so privileged to share their home with them. Thank you guys, look forward to returning

Guest Comments February 2021
5/5: Tripadvisor, February 2021: You won’t be disappointed!! We have just returned home from the most wonderful stay at The Country House at Hunchy. Paul and Karin are the owners of this amazing property and they treated us with 5 star service from the time of booking. Everything was perfect, from detailed checkin information to a beautifully presented large room with everything you could possibly need and more. We are so glad we booked to eat dinner at this beautiful property as Karin’s cooking is outstanding. The 3 course breakfast was also another highlight of our trip. We will definitely be a return customer!
10/10: bookingdotcom, February 2021: What a great place for the weekend traveller to stay, great accommodation and great food. The Breakfast was awesome great quality ingredients and well presented, coming from the hustle and bustle of city life what a beautiful relaxing location, you can feel the serenity. What would have been better was for us to stay an extra night for a totally relaxing weekend, two nights would have been much better
Guest Comments January 2021
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Just what we needed. The 3 course breakfast was delicious. The owners were great with their communication from the minute that we booked and were very warm and accommodating during our stay. The location was beautiful and very peaceful, relaxing and serene, great views and the sounds of the wildlife was lovely. The suite itself was spacious and very clean and well laid out with lovely interior. There were little touches that I thought were just well thought out eg. face wipes for removal of make up in the bathroom and darker face washers for make up removal so you wouldn’t destroy the pristine white bath towels. It’s just smart as works for guests as well as the owners. They had everything you would need and more
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Amazing stay, well worth 5*. Beautiful house with gorgeous suites… the grounds are kept immaculate as are the rooms and house itself. Service was incredible, food was super tasty. The views are just amazing. Would highly recommend this for a luxury couple get away. Can’t thank Karin and Paul enough. It was just all perfect!
5/5: Tripadvisor, January 2021: The most wonderful and superb experience. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at The Country House at Hunchy. 5 Star luxury and 5 Star hospitality from Paul and Karin. We originally booked for one night but within an hour after arriving and meeting Paul and Karin and experiencing the tranquility and beauty of the place we booked to stay a second night. Karin is an amazing chef and our breakfast each day was simply fantastic. We left feeling more relaxed and refreshed than we have in a long time. The room was beautifully finished and extremely well appointed and nothing was left wanting. The Country House at Hunchy is located in a beautifully green, peaceful and lush habitat, surrounded by rolling hills with plenty of bird life and other fauna. We had such a lovely stay, we will definitely visit again. Our thanks to Paul and Karin for making our time there so special and relaxing. They went above and beyond in making our stay so enjoyable
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: One night away with the hubby was not enough, we will definitely be back again! Karin and Paul were amazing hosts. They were so friendly and accommodating which made our stay one to remember. The in house dining was spectacular, the food was absolutely amazing and the time between dishes were well spaced out. If you are thinking of dining in, make sure you come hungry as you don’t want to leave leftovers. It was delicious
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: Our favourite short stay to date! Location is amazing if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. Meals were superb and exceeded our expectations. Room was beautifully appointed with big fluffy towels, crisp linens and a king size bed. Every small detail was thought out. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. I cannot recommend The Country House at Hunchy highly enough
10/10: bookingdotcom, January 2021: A very quiet surreal break, with scrumptious food that you couldn’t fault. I loved the ambience of the property. The Hosts, Karin and Paul were excellent and the food was amazing. Will certainly go back, as it was a beautiful relaxing stay with scrumptious food and great hosts. There is nothing not to like here. We were accommodated to a high level of food, excellent and comfortable accommodation. Very clean property that was an absolute joy to stay in
Personal message to our Facebook Page, January 2021: ‘Please include the following in your review section. My husband and I stayed at The Country House for 2 nights and highly recommend this beautiful accommodation. Attention to detail and the hosts Karin and Paul could not have made us more welcome. They went over and above in ensuring that my dietary requirements were taken care of and even included a gift on my birthday. Karin is an amazing cook, preparing top class food with mostly organic and local produce. Book this place for any time you want to feel special’

10/10: bookingdotcom, December 2020: Beautiful property and very well run. Would love to come back
5/5: The Country House at Hunchy Facebook Page Review/Recommendation: Had a wonderful couple of nights at Hunchy Country House, everything is thoughtfully prepared, delicious food using local produce, modern spacious room, we are very happy with this stay
Thank You Email, December 2020
‘Dear Karin and Paul
Thank you for creating a truly tranquil ,luxurious , and delicious holiday experience. Every detail of comfort and luxury was available in our suite, whilst the quiet surrounds and lush gardens made for an idyllic setting. Karin’s breakfasts and dinners were generous and a gourmet delight. You were most genial hosts, the wine as part of our package and other goodies were special, so too was the bouquet of long stemmed roses which were gifted to us for our anniversary. Our stay was the highlight of our year. Many thanks Julie and Ross’
Thank You Note, December 2020
10/10: bookingdotcom, December 2020: Perfect getaway! So peaceful. Loved the pool and the room was very spacious. We had dinner in one night and the food by Karin and Paul was great. Second night we went to The Long Apron at Spicers, a must! Food was exceptional. If you go for the luxury package when staying here, it includes a bottle of wine, coffee in your room and a delicious 3 course breakfast. Karin and Paul really go out if their way to make it such a special stay. Highly recommend
5/5: The Country House at Hunchy Facebook Page Review/Recommendation: My partner and I had an amazing stay. The room was the best we’ve stayed in and the addition of breakfast made our weekend away just that more enjoyable. Highly recommended and we will be back
Guest Comments November 2020
5/5: Tripadvisor, November 2020: 5* experience. We were fortunate enough to have a weekend stay with dinner at The County House on the recommendation of friends. The whole experience from walking through the door to leaving was truly 5 star. We have stayed in lots of high end luxury hotels before but the accommodation on offer here along with the location of the property is outstanding, as is the service provided by the owners Paul and Karin. The breakfast included in our package and the additional meal we purchased were home cooked by Karin. They were of an extremely high quality and knowing that Karin had prepared every aspect of the meal from the home made Danish pastries to the slow cooked lamb made the meals even more special. A return trip is definitely on the agenda!

Guest Comments October 2020
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Fantastic. Wonderful hosts and a lovely short drive from the main Montville shops
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Very hard to beat. All the meals were excellent – never had better at any hotel that we have stayed at. The rooms lacked nothing in comfort or accessories.
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Would love to stay longer next time. A great place to relax and close to SC hinterland spots! We celebrated my husbands birthday overnight. We arrived after a huge downpour to Karin and Paul who immediately made us feel welcome and relaxed. Dinner was amazing and the breakfast was also a standout! Everything was wonderful, it was an excellent stay.
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: Relaxed getaway. It was one of the most relaxing stays. The bed was super comfortable. Plenty of space to lounge around. The quietness of the place is so calming. Karin and Paul were an absolute delight. Their meals were delicious. They also had a wealth of knowledge about the area and places to visit. Would definitely come back
10/10: bookingdotcom, October 2020: The breakfast was great and the location was very comfortable. The room was awesome and we loved that they supplied a lot of local produce in the mini bar and the breakfast was also locally grown and sourced. We went to one of their recommended restaurants (Harry’s on Buderim) which I think we will be going back to because the food was delightful and the service was outstanding. We’ll be going back to stay and go to the restaurant in the near future.
Guest Comments September 2020
5/5: Facebook Page Review/Recommendation, August 2020: My husband and I celebrated his birthday by staying 1 night in the Rainforest Suite. To summarise it in few words, we had a truly wonderful stay. From the moment I made the booking through the moment we left, Paul and Karin are terrific hosts. Keeping in contact and making it really easy, especially with all the useful information they provided prior to arriving. The room itself is beautifully kept, with plenty of space throughout. The bath was a highlight as was the tranquil view from our balcony. We had dinner there and Karin’s cooking is absolutely delicious! Everything is so fresh and yummy, we came away feeling so full and content after our 3 course meal. We were equally as pleased with the amazing breakfast. I could not fault the food and highly recommend enjoying a meal there. Karin is a fantastic cook, along with the help of Paul. We loved it so much, we have already booked to come back again in summer to enjoy the pool. Thank you again for a wonderful and relaxing stay, and we can’t wait to return!
10/10: bookingdotcom, August 2020: Perfect. Hosts are amazing and so accommodating nothing is a problem. Cleanliness was 10/10. Modern & Comfortable Décor. We can’t wait to stay again
10/10: bookingdotcom, August 2020: Exceptional. Wonderful hosts, delicious food, great bedroom. Will be back!
5/5: Facebook Page Review/Recommendation, August 2020: We can’t highly recommend the Country House At Hunchy enough. Paul and Karin are the most gracious and welcoming hosts who make the experience even more inviting. The Rainforest room is modern and stylish. Every attention to detail is included. Karin’s love of cooking is superbly out of this world. She uses all fresh and locally purchased produce to warm up your heart and soul. Paul makes the best coffee on the planet. We arrived feeling weary and tired, and left after having the best night’s sleep, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. We wanted to stay longer, so will be back again for sure. A truly 5 star experience that we’ll always treasure. Do yourself a favour and book in for a weekend of relaxation and spoils. Thank you soo much Country House At Hunchy.
5/5: Expedia, August 2020: A beautiful place to unwind and relax in 5 Star Accommodation. We booked the Rainforest Suite with the Premium Luxury package and thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay (we wish we could have stayed longer). Paul and Karin greet you on arrival and show you through the main house and suite to get you settled in. The suite is wonderfully appointed with all the modern and stylish features you like to see in accommodation of this quality. It’s only minutes away from Montville and only a short drive to Maleny or the Sunshine Coast. We ordered dinner to have in our room and it was just delicious. Karin is an excellent cook and the meal was restaurant quality. The portions are generous and the ingredients are sourced fresh locally. The luxury package also includes a 3 course breakfast for 2. As with dinner, it was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Paul’s coffee is awesome! Paul and Karin are so welcoming and gracious. It was an absolute pleasure to stay and we will be back for a longer stay next time. If you are looking for a getaway, this is the place to stay!
10/10: bookingdotcom, August 2020: Exceptional. Beautiful property in a beautiful location
10/10: bookingdotcom, August 2020: Our hosts went out of their way to make us comfortable – a very quiet relaxing stay

5/5: Google My Business Page, July 2020: Amazing stay, the rooms are immaculate, the food cooked by Karin was FABULOUS! Such a wonderful stay.
Thank You Card, July 2020:
Instagram Post, July 2020:
5/5: Tripadvisor, July 2020: Truly Fabulous. To describe Paul & Karin’s accommodation would be thoughtful, generous and memorable. Thoughtful in regards to their experience as travellers ensures every possible need is catered for in your room which makes you feel so welcome. Generous in the multitude of extras that are bestowed unasked for to ensure your stay is so enjoyable and lastly memorable with the insanely wonderful food prepared by Karin who is more that a cook but a true chef. Remember to diet before staying there because you will certainly need to partake of the many bush walks to justify having her scrumptious food. We adored our birthday visit and cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. Thanks to you both.
5/5: Expedia, July 2020: Stunning room & views, amazing food & wonderful owners
5/5: TripAdvisor, July 2020: Two night stay. We would normally stay at hotels so was unsure what to expect from The Country House. The suite was beautiful, very comfortable and absolutely spotless. Well equipped. Coffee machine is a nice touch and not often found even in top hotels. Plenty of thought has being applied to make sure your stay is a memorable one. The location has beautiful views out to the coast from your private deck. Located in a peaceful area. Minutes away from restaurants and shops in Montville. Hosts couldn’t be more helpful. Home cooked food is excellent. Breakfast variety and quality of produce rates a 10/10. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again soon.
5/5: Google My Business Page, July 2020: We did a one night get away from the kids. What an experience! They’re located up Hunchy Road in a quiet and remote spot. They were ready at the welcome and gave us the grand tour and left us to just enjoy our quick time together. The breakfast in the morning is above and beyond. Will stay again, and recommend to all.
5/5: Google My Business Page, July 2020: The room was beautiful room and the view was amazing. On top of that, Karin & Paul made me feel right at home during my stay. Nothing was too much trouble, and Karin’s meals were utterly delicious. This was the best getaway I’ve had in a long time!
5/5: Facebook Page Reviews/Recommendations, July 2020: Such an amazing place to stay. From the hosts who are so attentive to every detail and then to the room that is luxurious and comfortable with beautiful finishing and such thoughtful touches. Karin and Paul cooked us an amazing dinner and breakfast… the food was local and beautiful and better than restaurant quality. It was so easy with them catering to my gluten intolerance like it was just a simple request. The place was picturesque and we had the most relaxing and enjoyable time. Perfect couples retreat. I will definitely be back!
Guest Comments June 2020
10/10: bookingdotcom, June 2020: Perfect Couples Getaway. I booked this stay as a present for my partners birthday. It was a wonderful experience from the start. Paul and Karin were prompt with communication and had lots of wonderful suggestions to make the most of our stay. Paul and Karin have also done a wonderful job of showing off the local produce through their food. We ordered a cheese platter that was ready on arrival, it was lovely and all from local dairies. Couldn’t fault our stay! Would definitely recommend!
10/10: bookingdotcom, June 2020: Super relaxing stay, amazing views. Couldn’t be happier. Super friendly and helpful hosts. Dinners and breakfast excellent. Very spacious suite, lovely décor, very clean. I’ve already recommended to many friends and intend to return myself hopefully in the not too distant future. I can’t think of anything I didn’t like. Everything was perfect.
10/10: bookingdotcom, June 2020: Best weekend getaway! An amazing place to stop and slow down. The service was incredible. The food that was served for dinner and for breakfast was outstanding.
10/10: bookingdotcom, June 2020: Perfect place for a relaxing break. Beautiful property with fabulous personal service from Karin and Paul. Gorgeous views and a secluded location. Comfortable bed and pillows, which is rare praise coming from me, especially during pregnancy! Breakfast was a real treat and filled us up so we could have easily skipped lunch or dinner. Lovely coffee and the homemade pastries were really special. A wonderful place to celebrate our impromptu “babymoon” due to the perfectly timed easing of travel restrictions.
10/10: bookingdotcom, June 2020: The Breakfast is a Must!! Home cooked delicious food from locally sourced farmers. We also enjoyed a 3 course dinner which was magnificent! The owners went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. Will definitely be back!
