Magical Malindi Montville

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

"Magical Malindi" is just as it is named with breath taking views, absolute privacy, a feeling that you are a million miles from nowhere and yet only minutes from the picturesque village of Montville. Set in between the Obi Obi Valley and the wilderness of the Mary Valley this is the magic of Malindi.

Malindi's thirty-two rain-forested acres offers total privacy and tranquil seclusion accessed by a 400 meter driveway in a quiet cul-de-sac. Uninterrupted 270 degree views to Lake Baroon and up to the Obi Obi Valley.

Enjoy the 344 square metre architecturally designed glasshouse of magnificent proportions. The home includes 4 bedrooms, a master with en-suite; a guest room with its own en-suite and private sitting area; another two bedrooms have access to another full bathroom. It offers open plan dining and living area with the main featuring stunning cathedral ceiling, gourmet kitchen, deck surrounding lower level and private deck to upper level master.

Malindi is an outdoor and nature enthusiast's haven, far from any main roads the only sounds that you hear are those of the abundant birdlife in the area. We have a list of over 70 species of birds spotted from Malindi. The lush vegetation and the position of the property nestled into the hillside creates a micro climate that protects Malindi from strong winds and yet allows gentle breezes up from the valley.

Awaken to the sight of a misty morning. Sunbathe on your own secluded deck, or cool off in the deck-side plunge pool. Wander through Malindi's parkland and listen to the natural music of rainforest wildlife. And when night dances upon your shoulders, let the rhythms of the rainforest gently rock you to sleep.

In the middle of nature, in the middle of the Sunshine Coast, but so far away from everything and yet so close to it all, Magical Malindi.

Just ok

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Magical Malindi in August this year with family for our wedding at Maleny Manor . The location was perfect with stunning views but unfortunately the house was extremely dirty and had a really awful smell of mold throughout the house and because of this our stay wasn't very enjoyable unfortunately. I would suggest for maintainence and regular cleaning to be carried out on the house to reflect the price you pay per night as it is quiet expensive , you're paying for the view and location not the house itself unfortunately.

Owner's Response: Melissa stayed at Magical Malindi in August 2017. In the past two months she hasn't bothered to contact us personally to air the grievances written above. I am responding to her review because it is totally out of character with all of the other 40 reviews posted here on Stayz. It needs to be stated that Magical Malindi is booked constantly throughout the year and that means that the house is cleaned from top to bottom on an average of 2 to 3 times a week. Our cleaner who assists my wife and I in preparing the house for every guest will testify as to the meticulous standard of work we demand from her. My wife and I reject categorically that the house was dirty and that there was an awful smell of mould. In regards to the issue of mould Queenslanders know that they have to be vigelant in the hot wet months of summer because this is the time of the year when mould need special attention. They also know that mould isn't a real issue in the cool dry months of winter. This winter has been the driest we have experienced for the past eleven years with little or no rain in the months April to September. Melissa especially requested that we allow her to check-in two hours earlier that the 2 pm check-in time stated on Stayz and we generously consented to her request at no additional cost. I mention this because Melissa complained about Magical Malindi being expensive. Finally, if you have read Melissa's review I simply ask that you read any one of the other reviews recorded here on Stayz.Thank you

What an incredible time

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully designed house on superb grounds - cannot describe how wonderful it was to wake to the view over baroon pocket dam, stroll the gardens, find fresh fruit to juice that morning, or add to cocktails that evening - absolutely wonderful - my wife and I were stunned and cannot wait to book again in future years.

Unbelievable property

  • 5 of 5

Stunning stunning stunning and the hosts were just divine as well.

We had a group of us stay for a wedding close by at Spicers and we thoroughly enjoyed our accommodation here made even more special by the wonderful host's presenting us with freshly baked bread and local cheeses.

I can absolutely recommend a stay here.
