“From the minute u pull up to this little stone cottage, it will take your breath away. We absolutely adored our stay here. The open fire, little fresh flowers around, the beautiful quirky decor and stunning scenery makes this place beautiful. I called it the healing cottage. A place to get away, time to sit in one of the beautiful areas it has to offer, to reflect and ground yourself. We took out motorbikes and rode some stunning roads all only minutes away. We will definitely be returning to this little price of paradise. Jason was an amazing host who was thoughtful and quick to respond.”

“Originally, my stay at the aviary was intended for a place to stay whilst getting ready for my elopement on the Sunshine Coast. On the day of my wedding, it absolutely poured rain and our plans went out the window! Della was so amazing and allowed us to utilise the BEAUTIFUL grounds of her property and golf course to hold our ceremony and take our GORGEOUS photos. The rain was a blessing in disguise as the day turned out to be more perfect than intended! The Aviary was such a beautiful and airy space to capture our ‘getting ready’ pictures and our ‘first look’! From the gorgeous decor, lighting and hospitality, it was such a DREAM! The surrounding grounds are just magical as you listen to the birds chirping and the sound of the breeze through the rainforest trees! Not only is the Aviary gorgeous inside and out, but the smell once you open the door feels like you are walking into heaven! The bed was so comfortable it felt like sleeping on a cloud and the bath towels were so soft and fluffy! The small touches that Della leaves for you is just so thoughtful! The fresh flowers, the welcome hamper, the super soft dressing gowns and the little bits and pieces hidden throughout the cabin! It was honestly a dream to spend our weekend at the Aviary and definitely will hold a special place in our hearts! ❤️❤️❤️”
