Kaalba - superb accommodation

Bedrooms 1
Space 60 m²
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

Kaalba is a delightful spacious self-contained studio perched on the hillside only a hundred metres from the Obi Obi Creek. The quiet and protected location provides views out over the rainforested valley. Throughout the year more than ninety species of bird can be seen (and heard) from the veranda.

The interior is elegantly furnished with a queen-sized bed, a sitting room, bathroom and small but well-stocked kitchen, as well as a weber barbecue on the deck. Locally made organically produced Mukti Botanicals soaps are used throughout.

Situated on the east side of Maleny it is seven minutes from the town centre and ten minutes from Montville – only thirty-five minutes to the coast – close to several of the most popular wedding venues on the Range.

This is a special place: a short walk leads to a deep fifty metre long swimming hole with basalt rock steps. A little further and you'll discover the waterfall and rapids. Platypus live in the creek, if you're an early riser you can almost guarantee to see them. It is the ideal location to relax and rejuvenate while still being close to all amenities.

Peaceful, beautiful, natural, refreshing.

Waking to an orchestra of birdsong is lost from city life; a perfect place for renewal of mind and spirit. Two nights is the minimum stay but one leaves wanting more

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Kaalba, our hosts were exceptional and the studio is immaculately well-appointed. Kaalba is a delight for all the senses with the sights, sounds and smell of the rainforest. We fell in love with this little piece of paradise and hope to visit again soon.
