A Dream Property

5 of 5
It was our 40th Wedding Anniversary weekend away with our two grown boys and their families together with my wife's Mother. The Shieling was all we hoped for and then some. Fiona and John were fabulous hosts and left us wanting for nothing as everything was included, as well as a few treats. We were spoiled. The Shieling was easy to get to in Maleny and the countryside outlook was a wonderful treat. Five large bedrooms with double beds in all and they even provided a cot for one of our younglings. Yes, I am recommending the Shieling to all our friends. Thanks John and Fiona.

Beautiful and refreshing

5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful unit this Christmas period and also on four of the past five years. The aspect and views are second to none and its décor is very tastefully done. The unit has a very beautiful feel to it and the white French shuttering in the bedroom and the overhead fans throughout give a beautiful sense of tasteful and timeless charm. On Boxing Day this year the fridge packed in but to her immense credit the owner organised and had a brand new fridge ordered and fitted within 12 hours..! Have booked the unit for next year as well ..!!
