  • ***** 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.

  • *****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.
  • *****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.
  • 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.
  • Our Anniversary stay was superb. Thank you for all your added extras and kind thoughts. What a wonderful place you have and amazing meals and pleasant company. All the best. (extract from a Thank You Card in April 2018)
  • 10/10 Amazing comforts, relaxation galore. Paul and Karin greeted us like family, it was like coming home to mums for a relaxing pleasant weekend. They were both more than accommodating, and whilst friendly still afforded us our privacy. I cant wait for the opportunity to return. We needed more time here, that was our only downfall, having to leave!
  • *****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.
  • *****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.
  • 10/10 Comfortable private stay with delicious breakfast. Great spot for day outings to the rainforests. Very friendly welcome, beautiful breakfast with home-made pastries. Karin and Paul were wonderful hosts. The bedding was supper comfy and amenities very clean.
  • My husband and I stayed overnight for my birthday, and absolutely love the experience. The house is about a 10 minute drive from Montville, in a beautiful, serene setting with some stunning views. The hosts, Paul and Karin, are very welcoming and helpful; yet you have no idea they are there otherwise. Our suite had a king sized bed, with quality linen, loads of pillows and felt like being tucked up in a cloud. The bathroom is big, and features a deep spa bath. I loved the addition of a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room, providing plenty of space to hide luggage. The living area had a decent sized bar fridge, microwave, coffee machine, 2 good sized sofas, large screen tv (not that we turned it on) and a sound bar to stream music from your phone. There is also a furnished balcony at each end, the front one looking out on lovely gardens and up the mountain; the rear looking over the pool and surrounding gardens and across the valley to the coast. Paul and Karin have really made it special with those extra touches, such as super thick towels, Nespresso machine with a choice of pods, a selection of quality teas and other hot beverages, a bottle of local milk, local spring water, local chocolates, bottle of wine, makeup wipes in the bathroom, and salts for the bath. A very special touch was a bunch of the most beautiful roses for my birthday, from a local rose farm. Breakfast is wonderful, with 3 courses featuring fabulous local produce and freshly baked pastries and homemade jams, enjoyed in the main house with views across the trees and out to the ocean. If you don’t want to drive out to dinner, transport to a few of the local restaurants can be arranged, or you can enjoy Karin’s home cooking in-house.  I only wish we’d booked more than one night!
  • “Just…wow! Paul and Karin are the most welcoming hosts I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The house is incredible and what you get for your money is amazing. I stayed with three of my girlfriends for a relaxing hen’s weekend away, and we had the whole place to ourselves. Karin is an amazing cook – we were so full we had to take our last course of our three course breakfast, home with us! I can’t recommend this place any higher. Perfect for couples or groups, or anybody wanting a getaway from the hustle and bustle of busy life. Thank you so much Paul and Karin! Reviewed March 19, 2018 on Agoda”
  • Hi Karin and Paul. We wanted to say thank you for your hospitality last month.  We thoroughly enjoyed our days with you and we were sorry to leave.  We can honestly say that we have not had a breakfast even remotely comparable to yours since we left. We have now stayed in three different properties, in varying locations, since we left Hunchy, and the accommodation we enjoyed at your home has exceeded all the others.  Your accommodation was spacious, spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and in a fabulous location.  We could not think of anything that we may have needed, that hadn’t been thought about and supplied.  Not to mention the breakfasts!!! We would certainly recommend a stay at your beautiful home to anyone. We don’t think it could be surpassed. Again, many  thanks. (received via email).
  •  Great location we were made feel very welcome and the property was just awesome.
  • Lovely spot to go, if only our stay was longer. Breakfast was delicious fresh fruit, locally made yogurt. Best adult b&b for couples to get away together. The entire experience was absolutely great.
  • 白と緑が素晴らしい 朝食はとても美味しかった。現地のフルーツ、作りたての料理、焼きたてのパンは最高でした。食べきれないほど頂きました。 部屋は白色で統一されていて、設備もジェットバスもあり、とても充実しています。 庭は良く手入れされていていました。 周りも緑に囲まれて鳥がさえずり、景色が良かった。 また、泊まりにいきたい。
  •  Translation:  The breakfast was very delicious. Local fruits, freshly made dishes, freshly baked bread was awesome. I got as much as I could eat. The room is unified in white, equipment is     also equipped with jet bath, it is very substantial. The garden was well maintained. Birds were singing surrounded by greenery, scenery was good. I want to go staying.
  • The only downside to our stay was we couldn’t stay longer. Karin and Paul are the perfect host. We can’t wait to come back again and would highly recommend The Country House at Hunchy.
  • Absolutely gorgeous. Karin and Paul are very hospitable. This is our second visit in 2 months and we will be back again. Food is out of this world. I would highly recommend you try it out for yourselves. You will not be disappointed.
  • My parents stayed here for their 50th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. Beautiful place with lovely hosts. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an escape to serenity, luxury and wonderful service. Thanks for making their anniversary so memorable.
  • ***** Spent the weekend at The Country House with my special someone, and it was a truly delightful experience. Paul and Karin are amazing hosts, very attentive and provide an outstanding service. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we stepped out of the car, and it’s an experience we feel compelled to take up again. Thank you!
  • ***** An incredibly beautiful & peaceful place to stay to relax and unwind. Paul & Karin are amazingly gracious & generous hosts…..be prepared to be thoroughly spoilt with complete 5 star luxury & service! Our king size suite was perfect… luxuriously spacious & very private….beautiful Jabula roses & handmade chocolates in our room when we arrived, private balconies, spa & all the special bathroom treats….even make up remover! & beautifully scented bath soak.
  • ***** If you’re looking for a great value, luxury getaway, this is the place. Hunchy sits just below Montville and The Country House is nestled in beautiful rainforest, completely private, with only birdsong and the occasional cow moo to keep you company. The pool area and surrounds are peaceful and very relaxing. The suites are large, with all the mod cons you need and very comfortable. We chose the option of dining in on our first evening and Karin and Paul are lovely hosts. Karin is an excellent cook. Breakfast is three courses and will set you up for the day! With only two suites and plenty of attention to detail, The Country House really does feel luxurious. Perfect for recharging the batteries.
  • ***** What a wonderful place so peaceful and relaxing the views are breathtaking the food is out of this world (for “just a cook” lol) the hosts are so friendly. Will be coming back and highly recommend them.
  • Paul and Karin are amazing hosts! From the time they welcomed us to the time we had to go back to Brissy. The home cooked meal are restaurant quality and cooked to perfection. Really exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much Paul & Karin!
  • ***** Karin and Paul exceeded all expectations and were very professional and accommodating. We will be back for sure!
  • The owner/operators, Karin & Paul, are wonderful hosts and keep an A+ establishment. Breakfast is provided with Karin as chef – brilliant! She makes everything herself using local produce. Dinner available on request and was just as good.
  • We had an amazing stay, breakfast was superb (so filling!), service outstanding, and the room incredibly comfortable (& huge)! We can’t wait to go back. Highly recommend. Thanks Paul & Karin for a wonderful experience.
  • Paul & Karin were fantastic hosts and very genuine. I would recommend to anyone looking for a weekend away like we were. Karin is a fantastic cook and would advise to eat in!
  • Beautiful house, every little detail taken care of. Quiet peaceful location.
  • We can’t wait to return! Exceptional property, service and stay. Paul & Karin go above and beyond at their Country House. It is so calming and peaceful, privacy is ensured and everything has been thought of. The perfect weekend escape. We requested dinner as an extra, and of course breakfast is included with the stay, and Karin’s cooking skills are phenomenal!
  • The room was fresh and clean, the bedding was comfy, hosts very friendly. The meals (breaky & dinner) was unreal (very very filling). It was a very quiet, relaxing atmosphere here. Highly recommend this place to everyone. Thank you for such a beautiful weekend, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back in the near future.
