About the property


Create Beautiful Memories with Family and Friends; Celebrate a Wedding in Montville and Maleny; and Rejuvenate, Revive and Rediscover yourself in luxurious comfort in the total and spacious privacy of three acres of landscaped gardens with magnificent valley views.

5 double bedrooms, Gourmet Kitchen, Polished Timber Floors, Fireplace, Resort Style Pool,Superb Valley Views, Lounge Bar

A luxurious, private, fully self-contained five bedroom premium holiday home on 3 landscaped acres in the magical hills of Montville.

Guests at Nirvana love the serenity of this well designed spacious home with many facets and areas to spread out. The views over the valley and adjacent Kondalilla Falls National park from the decks are beautiful. The gardens give the home a real country feel.

The warm toasty fire, the large collection of books, the premium sound system- all add up to an unforgettable stay. The house is very private and yet only a few minutes away from charming Montville village. It really is country living at its best.

Your hosts-Rekha & Shekhar grew up in the foothills of the Himalayas in India and moved to Australia in 1994. We raised our son, Sameer and our daughter, Noel in Brisbane where we worked both in the public service and the private sector. Both Rekha and Shekhar are passionate about Nirvana and love meeting and hosting their guests.

Rekha has over 30 years experience working in the public sector, universities and in the private sector in Australia and overseas. Her interests include Yoga, reading, interior decoration and Indian cooking. Shekhar has been an industrial chemist overseas and a Queensland public servant. He loves to travel and is a keen percussionist.

But we always wanted to get away from the pressures and stresses of a fast paced corporate city life and yearned for the tranquillity and relaxed pace of a country lifestyle in the hills. And then we discovered Montville..

We have been in love with Montville and the surrounding areas ever since we first visited it in 1997 on a business trip. We simply HAD to live here and started looking at properties in the region. We saw many beautiful places but it was love at first sight when we drove into the winding driveway of this magnificent house. The breathtaking natural beauty, the crisp mountain air, the spectacular valley views, the waking up to the sound and sights of nature; the dense mist that rises up from the valley in the morning. The spacious house, the endless decks, the pool, the bar, the fireplace, the landscaped gardens -it was just magical.

We immediately knew that we had found our Nirvana…


-where the views are divine, the crisp cool Montville mountain air invigorating and the serenity at this holiday home inspirational

-where the only sounds you hear are from the abundant birdlife and the lullaby of the gently flowing water from the falls at the adjacent Kondalilla Falls National Park;

-where you can do as much or as little as you want …

-where you will truly attain Nirvana !

Rekha & Shekhar Sharma purchased this country house in 2007 and Nirvana welcomed its first guests on 23 May 2008.

Which we now present to you, our valued guests, for you to enjoy and experience exclusively.



Read a book while soaking in the sun in the comfortable deck chairs; or swim and relax in total privacy in the resort style pool, stroll the landscaped three acre property and pick some fresh fruit and macadamia nuts for breakfast.

Walk to the Kondalilla Falls National Park just round the corner, go for a swim in beautiful rock pool the and picnic in the beautiful environment of Kondalilla Falls.

Shop in the quaint shops and galleries, dine at the chic cafes and restaurants or just stroll the main street of charming Montville village saying “how do you do” to the other people on the street and you’ll say to yourself, “what a wonderful world”.

Take in the view from this lovely Montville house and watch the glorious sunset over the rolling hills from the extensive covered verandahs or the pool deck.

Then head to the lounge bar, light the log fire (turn down the lights), open a bottle of wine, play soft romantic music on the sound system, sit back and just lose yourself in the magic of Nirvana at Montville.

Keep the children occupied with a DVD , Wii or board games in the separate living room with a picture frame window.

Impress everyone (including yourself!) with your KARAOKE skills.

Fire up the barbeque or cook up a storm in the gourmet timber kitchen fitted with European appliances (salvation can be luxurious!) and dine in style at the Indian Rosewood dining table with breathtaking views over the valley and the hills of Montville.

And when you have had enough for the day, relax in the five very comfortable bedrooms with bay windows and views so beautiful that you might not want to sleep in……

Or you might miss the mist that rises up from the valley and envelopes the holiday house and grounds in its invigorating mystery.

Beautiful outlook

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 couples & stayed for 2 nights. It was a very spacious home & we all had a fabulous time. Plenty of room for 10 people. Lovely quiet area. The only thing was we were expecting 3 bathrooms (as per the Stayz website) but it has only 2, although it did have a separate toilet.

Beautiful House

I have just spent a lovely weekend at Nirvana with 4 other mums and our teenage daughters. It was a great place to unwind and hang out with our girls. The kitchen was so well equipped and it was lovely having so many different places to sit and chat. Highly recommend this for a great getaway

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and some close friends from interstate & overseas recently stayed in this beautiful house, We stayed in Nirvana for a long weekend while attending our son's wedding. We all agreed that it was the perfect house in the perfect location. Its size, decor, attention to detail, tranquil surrounding grounds and proximity to both Montville and Kondalilla Falls was much more than we had expected. We are already planning a reunion there sometime in the future. Highly recommended!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nirvana. The house is very well set out and very comfortable for a large group. The location is very private and beautiful. Very convenient to the shops of Montville and Kondalilla Falls. Fabulous accommodation would definitely come back and recommend to others.
