You have the whole house as well as your own private "lapa" - BBQ area. In summer you have air conditioning and in winter a cosy eco friendly fire. Relax on the comfortable couches in the living area, have drinks at sunset in your lapa, listening to the birds in the 500 year old fig tree which towers over the area, feed the resident guinea fowl or cuddle up with Tiger the cat. You are at home!

I live on the premises so I am always around to help out. You can order meals from our delicious menu which is delivered to your cottage. Light the candles, open a bottle of good wine - and enjoy! Then go to bed with the sounds of the frogs to soothe you to sleep. Nature at its best!
Maleny is a picturesque village in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, about 1 1/2 hours drive from Brisbane. We are always at least 5 deg cooler in summer, with beautiful breezes. We are only 15 minutes from Australia Zoo, 1 hour to famous Noosa and 30 mins drive to the nearest beaches. Beautiful rainforest walks, interesting shops, award winning restaurants, the Maleny Botanical Gardens with the fabulous aviary are but a few of the many experiences around here. Or just sit under the fig tree and relax!
We have put a lot of love and caring into our cottage and would love our guests to respect that - but also totally relax! No smoking inside, but fine on the verandahs and in the lapa. Pets are welcome, inside and out. As we are in a rural area, we would like guests to respect that - and not make too much noise! But thoroughly enjoy themselves!

I am a very young 74 (nearly 75) year old lady who live on the premises by myself at The African Cottage. I love travel, and I also love going back to my homeland, South Africa. That is why I take groups of people to South Africa on a Gourmet Safari every year. A good excuse to eat delicious food and drink wonderful wines (and see animals!) for 3 1/2 weeks! I've travelled all over the world but my favourite place is Tuscany, especially Cince Tierra. Love it there - the scenery, and the food! I also make a range of gourmet sauces, chutneys, marinades and spice mixes called Gourmet Afrika, which we distribute all over Australia. I do cooking classes when I can find the time. In my spare time I spend a lot of time with my grandchildren, whom I love dearly. We love going to musicals, shows or out and about shopping and having wonderful lunches. I do yoga and occasionally go to the gym. Love movies! I have been in Australia for 33 years now and absolutely love living in our little piece of paradise called Maleny! And I absolutely LOVE having wonderful people come to stay here and making new friends! My passion is food - and sharing that with likeminded people.
