Anyone who frequents the Sunshine Coast hinterland can attest to the beautiful scenic landscape of the area. As we climbed the winding roads with glimpses of rolling hillsides and deep valleys we hoped that the views from our room would encapsulate some of the idyllic pastures – and indeed it did and so much more…

Upon arrival we were greeted by Randy, a cheerful woodcrafter and host. Immediately one felt welcomed in to a home – that personal touch that is so different to the atypical monotonous routine of a large establishments. This exceptional hospitality continued throughout our stay with Randy and Maree offering local knowledge (Maleny Fudge and Gelato is to die for!), and having prepared a bottle of wine and cheese platter for our arrival, as well as a scrumptious hot breakfast delivered to our room every morning.

Our room was spacious and well-appointed with Randy’s intricate woodwork being featured throughout. The four elements of the room that brought a big cheesy grin to our face were:
1) Sweeping uninterrupted views of the hinterland from our private balcony (see my traveller photos)
2) A luxurious, oversized spa-bath that shared the same view as our balcony
3) A massive king-size bed, again looking out across the balcony to the expansive valley
4) Lastly, a collection of movies to indulge in – free of course!

We have no hesitations in recommending Artisan Spa Views for anyone looking for a relaxing, intimate getaway or week-long stay.

Cheers, from guests S & J
