About Us

Ken and Melissa, your hosts, have lived in various locations on the Sunshine Coast for over 30 years, and offer our guests the benefits of local knowledge and personalised service, with an emphasis on showcasing locally sourced sustainable, ethically farmed products where possible.

Your hostsWe discovered the property in 2003, a secluded 11½ acres with a permanent creek and stunning views of the surrounding range a short drive to all Sunshine Coast destinations and attractions. Ken and our son Kelby built the house using passive solar design principles in keeping with our sustainability goals.

We made the decision to share our home when Melissa’s government job was made redundant, and Ken wanted to further develop his passion for cooking. Our daughter Simone has also come on board to assist us in our venture.
