Guest Comments August 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 Decor. 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: 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!
There is a gap in the dates of Guest Reviews due to the impact of COVID-19 meaning we were closed because of travel restrictions in Queensland and Australia. So no Guests!
Guest Comments February 2020
10/10: Bookingdotcom, February 2020: Beautiful location. Peaceful. Spacious. Everything that you would need is there. The couple who run the place are extremely nice and friendly. Our car broke down on the way and we were ready to go back home to Brisbane. When we rang they offered to drive down and pick us up and then took us to the train station the next day. They went above and beyond. They also cooked us a meal in house. Very much recommended!!!!
5/5: Google My Business Page, February 2020: My wife and I stayed for two nights in late December. The accommodation and hospitality is excellent. There is nothing that I could possibly suggest that needs improvement.
Guest Comments January 2020
10/10: Bookingdotcom, January 2020: Home away from home! Lovely weekend getaway! Karin and Paul are absolutely great hosts and served us with a delicious three course breakfast and lots of local knowledge. Rooms are stunning and impeccably clean! Everything was perfect we never wanted to leave. The extra little chocolates and wine were such a special treat! Thank you so much for having us, definitely a beautiful place to stay!
10/10: Bookingdotcom, January 2020: Absolutely beautiful stay. Did not want to leave. Such a serene and stunning place! Beautiful location, beautiful room, beautiful everything!
5/5: TripAdvisor, January 2020: Simply amazing. This is an amazing getaway. It had everything we wanted for our escape – luxury, privacy and quality. The food was amazing and very good value. There is a large pool. The bed is very comfortable. The bathroom has a deep tub with jets. Large shower. Recommend the premium package which includes a bunch of little bonuses to make everything a little nicer and a personally cooked breakfast. Full Foxtel package too. Undercover parking. Great scenic views.
10/10: Bookingdotcom, January 2020: Absolutely Perfect! My husband and I just finished up our week long holiday with a stay at The Country House at Hunchy. We’ve stayed in Montville before and absolutely love the area. Our stay exceeded all expectations and we already had high ones! The suite was beautiful, exceptionally comfortable (and we are pretty hard to please when it comes to beds!) and absolutely spotless, so well equipped with everything you’d need and more. They’ve thought of everything which really makes your stay that extra special. The location was stunning with beautiful views across the rainforest and over to the coast. It was peaceful, with cool breezes to enjoy when sitting out on the deck. And just a short drive to restaurants and shops in Montville or Palmwoods. We were so pleased with everything, we decided to stay an extra night to enjoy the peace, privacy and serenity before heading home. Karin’s breakfasts were fantastic and properly set you up for the day and her home cooked dinner which we enjoyed in our suite one night was super yummy! We really appreciated her going the extra mile to accommodate our gluten free diets too, even baking us GF muffins for breakfast! We will definitely be back, I was so gutted to leave! Hosts of the absolute most!
Personal message: January 2020: ‘Hi Paul and Karin, we would just like to thank you again for making this a wonderful Christmas for us. We appreciate the amount of time you spend sourcing amazing produce and for Karin’s patience when cooking for us due to dietary restrictions and choices. We wanted you to know that your home is the most fantastic place to unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet. We are so grateful that we found you’.
5/5: LastMinute/Expedia: Beautiful scenery. Room and food impeccable. Lovely owners. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Definitely return many times again in the future.
Guest Comments December 2019
5/5: TripAdvisor, December 2019: Super Place. We stayed two nights at The Country House and would recommend to anyone looking for first class accommodation with fine dining options available from Karin. The suite we had was lovely and also private. Karin cooked us a delicious three course dinner on our second evening which would rival any fine dining restaurant. The wines we had a choice of were also excellent. A great place for couples looking for a base from which to explore and Paul’s knowledge of the area was extremely helpful.
10/10: Bookingdotcom, December 2019: Amazing, romantic stay for 2. Booked for my daughter and husband. They said pastries were amazing, could not fault anything. Even got the recipe for Karin’s pastry.
10/10: Bookingdotcom, December 2019: Will definitely be coming back for another stay. So sad it was only one night but definitely worth it. Warming welcome and lovely breakfast and peaceful surroundings. It was all amazing.
Guest Comments November 2019
5/5: Expedia, November 2019: Everything was excellent from start to finish. Beautiful room with separate lounge/TV Area, heaps of space and a tranquil setting. Great communication from the hosts throughout – nothing was too much trouble. It is a few kilometres from Montville so a great place to base yourself from when exploring the hinterland.
10/10: Bookingdotcom, November 2019: Wonderful hosts, beautiful peaceful location, the rooms and facilities were absolutely perfect
Guest Comments October 2019
5/5: TripAdvisor, October 2019: Bed and Breakfast Gem in Sunshine Coast Australia. We were visiting Australia and wanted to go to Australia Zoo “Crocodile Hunter’s Zoo”. We found this B&B online quite nearby the Zoo and took a chance – what a great decision. Nestled in mountains in quaint Montville area in Sunshine Coast on 12 acres with nature conservancy and views to Pacific Ocean which is just 20 minutes drive away. Gourmet breakfast every morning by the warm gracious hosts, and we even had a fabulous gourmet dinner specially prepared for us after our day at the zoo – as good as any top tier restaurant we have been at anywhere in world ! Great hosts and gourmet cooks- fabulous!!!! Lots to see in the area but we were too chicken to rent a car there – took a tour on way to Australia Zoo which was less than 20 miles away. Scenery and views en route are beautiful with small interesting towns with restaurants and shops along the drive. Cannot recommend highly enough – everything it was said to be online and more.
10/10: Hotelsdotcom/Expedia, October 2019: Absolutely wonderful from first contact (providing information) to after checkout (we left something behind & Karin was kind enough to mail it to us). The welcoming atmosphere, beautifully appointed accommodations & fabulous culinary artistry made this a wonderful luxury B&B experience! Thank you Paul & Karin
5/5: Wotif/Expedia, October 2019: The owners really know how to run a successful business. One of the best places I have stayed at. The suites are large and luxurious and service second to none. Anyone staying here will not be disappointed. Well done Karin and Paul.
5/5: Google My Business Page, October 2019: Karin & Paul really know how to make your stay peaceful. The room, the meals, the stay was amazing. We do regret only selecting the room option, for a little bit more money you get treated to a lot. Enjoy breakfast lunch or dinner overlooking the lovely rolling ranges of Hunchy / Montville. Wake up to only the sounds of birds and a gentle breeze. Enjoying looking up at a beautiful night sky, not washed out by city lights. A+, 10/10, 5 Stars.
5/5: Google My Business Page, October 2019: Absolutely magnificent! Could not recommended highly enough – a wonderful wonderful place to stay!
Guest Comments September 2019
5/5: Facebook Page, September 2019: The hosts Paul and Karin are warm and friendly and offer a tranquil guest house with gourmet style breakfast and other meals cooked to perfection! Every detail has been catered for in the suite. We stayed here while undertaking training locally and can highly recommend it. Five star 🌟 all the way! Rachael and Stacey Equine Empowerment by Pure Empowerment Psychology: Large suites · Luxury bath products · Spacious rooms · Thoughtful amenities · Quiet rooms
5/5: Google My Business Page, September 2019: This is a beautiful place to stay. The decor and attention to detail is amazing. Gorgeous view overlooking Sunshine Coast hinterland with verandas front and back both with comfy furniture to sit and relax. Peaceful and quiet yet only 10 minutes to Montville and 25 minutes to the Sunshine Coast. Our hosts Paul and Karin well and truly look after you and deserve their 5 star rating. If you don’t want to go out for breakfast or dinner they can cook for you and Karin’s cooking is delicious. I will definitely be staying again.
10/10: Personal Email, September 2019: Hi Paul and Karin, Thank you for making my son’s birthday present staying at your house last weekend such a great experience. Both Liam and Kirsty had an amazing time away and they loved your place and the fact you made a birthday cake for him. He was very excited and impressed with the personal touch and also raved about the breakfast. Thank you again and hopefully it won’t be their one and only visit. Michelle
5/5: Google My Business Page, September 2019: Paul and Karin are both extremely helpful and friendly.. The home cooked meals are very generous and are to die for.. The rooms are elegantly designed and very private… We will definitely be back
10/10: Bookingdotcom, September 2019: This is a beautiful Country House operated by the perfect hosts. It is in an attractive bush setting with a outlook over the pool towards the coast and sunset. The accommodation is superb, great decor and everything has been so well thought out. The hosts put on a very generous dinner and breakfast. There is absolutely nothing to be negative about here. Our one issue was that we were there for one night only and this place deserves more than that. Would certainly return and no hesitation in recommending to others. Thanks Paul and Karin.
10/10: Bookingdotcom, September 2019: Loved a quick stay on our trip to Montville. Paul & Karin were lovely! Very nice bath too!
5/5: TripAdvisor, September 2019: Luxurious and private country retreat. We stayed for six days at this amazing bed and breakfast and have nothing but praise for our experience! The modern interiors reflected the hosts’ eyes for detail, and the back porch view was spectacular. The pool was larger than your normal backyard pool and you can actually do proper laps in it. We loved the oversized shower and the deep jet-bath was amazing to relax in. The bed and sofas were extremely comfortable and the sheets, towels and blankets were 5-star quality. Even the pool towels were extra large and luxurious. They also have the full Foxtel package for all your entertainment needs. The Country House was a 5 minute drive from the local village of Montville. The daily three-course breakfast that Karin cooked was outstanding and was of high-restaurant quality; it kept us full until late afternoon. She changed the menu everyday and it became a daily highlight for us. Paul was very informative about the area and even helped us plan our activities. One thing that really stood out for us was their efforts in going above and beyond their normal services. On our last morning after breakfast, Karin prepared three containers of leftover fruit cut up into pieces and even gave us utensils, serviettes and bottles of water for our drive back to Sydney. We were so impressed and enjoyed our stay so much that we have plans to return! Thank you Paul and Karin for an amazing experience!
