***** My Wife and I recently had a 3 night stay at the Country House at Hunchy for our Wedding and It was the most amazing bed and breakfast I have experienced. The owners Paul and Karin offered the most friendly hospitality. They were available at all times but able to offer a great level of respect and privacy at the same time. Regarding meals on site, they were absolutely fantastic, we had many dietary requirements including GF, DF and they were very respectful with this, they were able to offer beautiful meals without any fuss. The rooms/suites are stunning. Nothing in the area could compare with the large rooms and comfortable beds. The suites are fully furnished with all the trims and fittings required for a comfortable 5 star stay. Beautiful gardens views from both living areas and bedrooms. The location is only a short drive from some of the Hinterlands most famous locations including Kondalilla falls and the township of Montville. We are so thankful to Paul and Karin for an amazing stay and really adding elegance and comfort to our Wedding Weekend. If you’re looking for an amazing bed and breakfast with all the bells and whistles, then Hunchy is for you.
***** We only stayed one night but we were given such an impression that it actually tops any hotels we’ve stayed in. Firstly, a few days before arrival, we received an email from Karin and Paul to organise what we would be having for dinner + information about our stay. From here we were able to have contact with them to advise our arrival time and to tell them which wine we preferred– very personal, have never experienced this before.
When we arrived we were greeted by the owners Paul and Karin who invited us in for a quick chat while taking in the gorgeous treetop views. Here they gave us information about our stay and what to expect. We then moved down the hall into our room and I was so surprised at how spacious the room was (huge), spotlessly clean and how modern & all mod cons there were. The attention to detail was impeccable having little extras like local chocolates & Maleny milk in the fridge as well as make up removal towel in the bathroom and sweeteners for your coffee, chocolate sprinkles for your cappuccino. The décor was in the room was divine too. Platinum package Foxtel and free wifi. The spa bath was ginormous.
We ate the 3 course dinner in the main living area consisting of fresh prawns from Mooloolaba, Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding & Sticky Date Pudding and hubby had Strawberry Cheesecake –. All home made fresh by the amazingly talented Karin – absolutely scrummy yum.. All we needed was a comfy bed to sleep away our full bellies – which is what we got!
Breakfast was just as good – again 3 courses (heck it was my birthday and YOLO) freshly squeezed orange juice made by Paul, followed by a martini glass filled with fresh fruit sourced locally and yoghurt, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and the most deliciously cooked tomatoes I have EVER tasted. Followed by warmed croissants and pastries to finish.
Once the car was packed and we were on our way out, Karin and Paul gave us a lovely send-off spending about half an hour chatting. We really warmed to these people who waved us off who went out their way to make us feel very special which we know they do to every guest. You have a great thing going there Paul and Karin and we can’t wait tell everyone about it 🙂
***** Great getaway: attentive and welcoming hosts, attention to detail, comfort, tranquillity and privacy, location, complimentary creature comforts. Something to consider: event courtesy buses may not be able to pick you up from the house so check with your event’s bus service if this is important to you. This was our first time to stay in Montville and we’re so glad that we stumbled across The Country House. Unfortunately, due to the event we were attending we never got to take full advantage of the place or sample Karin’s cooking. Something to look forward to on our next visit no doubt. Thank you for a wonderful and comfortable stay Paul and Karin.
***** Perfect babymoon: Could not have asked for a more spectacular way to start our babymoon holiday than staying at The Country House. The rooms were incredibly spacious with modern yet homely decor, with sprawling views of the tree tops and beautifully maintained gardens out of every window. Paul and Karin somehow managed to be the perfect amount of present without being at all overbearing or intrusive, and Karin’s 3 course breakfast with locally sourced ingredients was as absolute delight! Will be recommending with gusto to our friends and family.
***** Nothing too much trouble: Excellent surrounds, delicious food, luxurious rooms and facilities, beautiful location and very accommodating and gregarious hosts. Spent three nights and had a lovely time. We were treated to three course culinary delights for breakfasts, making use of a range of fresh local produce, to contrive different menus each morning.
***** Although a little off the beaten track it is worth staying at The Country House, beautiful spacious rooms with comfortable lounges and beds with touches of luxury everywhere. Clean and quiet and the 3 course breakfast was absolutely amazing. Our hosts were just lovely and would recommend a stay here. Beautiful.
***** Perfect for a relaxing weekend retreat. Everything was impeccable, and the locally sourced breakfast was just amazing. Could not hope for better hosts; they are beautiful.
***** Beautiful property tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main strip – truly lending itself to a country vibe and luxe experience. STUNNING house and lovely, attentive hosts full of knowledgeable advice and a fine eye for detail. The Country House at Hunchy is such a gorgeous and comforting place you’d almost rather stay in than go exploring the surrounding Montville and Maleny areas! Was very handy to have a range of restaurants offering free transfers to and from the Country House so we could relax while wining and dining in Montville. Highly recommend!
***** Fantastic visit. With only 2 groups on site at any one time a nice private stay was possible. The bnb was clean and spacious and the breakfasts were first class (you won’t need lunch thereafter!). You are only 10 minutes from Montville with several of the local eateries providing courtesy car arrangements. Highly recommended.
***** We had a perfect time in this beautiful luxury Bed and Breakfast at Hunchy in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We could not have asked for more to make this such a wonderful escape. The hosts, Karin and Paul were very friendly and obliging to help you with your every whim. Our room was beautiful decorated and so spacious with separate bedroom along with a kitchenette and lounge room with views of the coast to Mt Coolum. We treated ourselves to a three course meal professionally prepared by Karin who is also a pastry chef. The selection of meals is very extensive making you wish you could try everything. Breakfast was a delight starting with a berry smoothie then local fresh fruit with Maleny yoghurt and a sumptuous hot breakfast and to end with warm croissants and pastries served with homemade jam all made by Karen. This is the perfect place to experience the Hinterland and enjoy the cooler months sitting in front of a log fire. Thank you for a very pleasant escape.
10/10 The food made by Karin was amazing. A perfect get away.
10/10 Absolutely wonderful – a very relaxing place to stay! The property was beautifully maintained, private & very clean, room and views were amazing, bed was so comfy, and the hosts Paul & Karin were so hospitable, they even left beautiful roses, chocolates and champagne in the room, as we were celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. Try Karin’s home cooked meals she is a wonderful cook – everything was fresh and delicious.
10/10 Paul and. Karin were wonderful hosts. Bed was very comfortable. Very spacious accommodation. Breakfast was exceptional.
*****My adult son and I just spent 1 night at this beautiful property and were spoilt by our wonderful hosts Paul and Karin. Highly recommended especially the 3 course breakfast cooked by Karin. Well done Paul and Karin.
*****Booked on the spur of the moment and chose The Country House as it looked quite different from everywhere else. B&B? Certainly not like you might have experienced before. Paul and Karin provided a warm welcome, nothing too much trouble without being intrusive. The house was pristine and elegant. Rooms huge and stocked with many nice little touches and extras. Views and solitude just right. Finally Karin’s cooking! Everything was made by her from local produce and was a delight to eat. Stayed one night only and felt as though we had been relaxing for a week – we’ve already booked to go back!
*****Have stayed twice now and each time they had exceeded my expectations. Incredibly warm and welcoming and Karin is a whizz in the kitchen. We cleaned our plates at every meal!
***** Enjoyed wonderful relaxing mid week escape. The welcome was warm, room was modern, very clean and extremely comfortable. Wine, chocolates, slippers and robe, spa bath with beautiful products and a very comfie king bed awaited us. Karin cooked a hearty breakfast that ensured we would want no lunch . Wish we could have stayed longer but will return.
*****We stayed here as a Wedding Anniversary treat. Absolutely wonderful, Karin & Paul made us feel very special and really looked after our every need. The accommodation itself is beautifully presented , large apartment style room and every detail was explained eg. music system & coffee machine and we were presented with beautiful roses, champagne and chocolates…All the little things had been thought of and the meals were 5star .. Karin loves to cook , so everything was home made and locally sourced. Would definitely recommend and we look forward to coming back sometime.

10/10 We didn’t want to leave, we loved our stay: Friendliness of the owners, more than enough space in terms of rooms. Excellent facilities in room.
