We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious home set in lovely grounds. The hosts were super communicative and were able to allow us to have an early check in and late check out which was fabulous. We were a party of 9 celebrating Xmas in July.

A wonderful stay! Our hosts really went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable, their communication and helpfulness was much appreciated. Would highly recommend them as hosts and their house as a wonderful place to stay. ‘Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Your house is lovely, your thoughtful touches and helpful communication made it a special stay indeed. I have already passed your details to a number of people and highly recommended you as hosts. Thanks again’
Sarah, J. June 2020
A well-equipped home amongst lush gardens and beautiful decks and bird life. Immediately felt relaxed and away from the business of life. Fully functional kitchen, comfortable beds, crisp linen and fireplace was a lovely winter warmer. It was the perfect setting for weekend away with a group of friends. The Kondalilla falls just a short walk away and a nice little cafe and gift shop down the road. Host Communication was excellent and little notes around the house with ample instruction to make our stay so easy. Thank you for having us… we will be back!’
Kellie, L. June 2020 (Our first Post-Covid-19 Guest!)
Great space for two families to share. Many areas to relax in and outdoor space and garden lovely.
Margaret d’P. January 2020
We had a great stay with 10 people in total. It’s a big, liveable space with 5 double bedrooms. A short walk to the Kondalilla Falls trailhead.
Luke F. San Francisco, CA January 2020
Beautiful home in a beautiful area near the Kondalilla falls. Quick responses from hosts and well looked after. Will miss the singing birds and surrounding lush gardens.
Catherine. January 2020
Lovely location tucked up in the hills with beautiful views, home from home
Tom. United Kingdom. December 2019
Very, VERY wonderful place to stay. It makes you appreciate our beautiful country and state. Rekha and Shekhar are very lovely hosts who made our stay very comfortable. Would definitely recommend, especially for a nice family holiday. On behalf of Nathan and myself I would just like to thank you for letting us stay at Nirvana for our wedding. It was the most perfect weekend I could have asked for and we couldn’t have made this happen without your cooperation and beautiful space. Thanks for always communicating with us throughout the year. Spectacular place!!!!
Tash and Nathan. November 2019
Great house in a great location! The view from the deck is lovely. Great layout for a large family or group of friends. The beds are all very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and left refreshed and relaxed.

Sandra. August 2019
Lovely big house in a beautiful part of Australia.
Sophie. August 2019
A great place to escape the rat race. Lounging on the decks even in bad weather looking out over the scenery is very relaxing. A good place to use as a base for exploring the area. We were a group of old friends catching up. Sitting by the fire at night, cooking together in the kitchen and sitting down in the dining room to9 enjoy each other’s company – this is an ideal place for a group of friends or family.
Dagmar. Brisbane. July 2019
Perfect location, close to town but nestled into the bush so it feels like you are miles away from anyone else. The house is beautiful, WiFi is nice and strong, and the firewood made our stay very comfortable and special. Hosts are lovely, they called when I checked in to make sure I was ok. Ideal for winter – the fire is lovely and well stocked with wood. If you’re looking for a big house for a retreat, this is it.
Thanks so much for being a great host. I hope to come again.
Isaac. London. June 2019
Absolutely magnificent home with spectacular views of the garden and forest. Thank you for letting us stay at your place Rekha and Shekhar. Place was warm, beautiful and positive just like the hosts. We are expecting family from overseas and will bring them to Nirvana to create more beautiful memories!! Coming to Montville? Stay at Nirvana!!
Anjali R. May 2019
Beautiful gardens. Central location. Neat and tidy. Nice atmosphere.
Mike Camimo January 2019 (as reviewed on Google)
Best holiday home, great amenities, superb pool and ample room. Would definitely recommend this place to all!
Missy Campbell. , December 2018
My bridesmaids and I stayed at Nirvana over my wedding weekend. Our stay was amazing, so peaceful and no stress whatsoever. There was plenty of room for the hairstylist and makeup artist plus all of us to get ready. The location is just perfect. It was a 3-minute drive to the wedding venue and also hidden from the hustle and bustle. I would recommend Nirvana to anyone wanting lovely accommodation and friendly helpful owners. I will be back Rekha & Shekhar.
Emily, Buderim. , November 2018
A great place for a group celebration. Secluded and private. Lovely areas to be together or to enjoy solitude. Native wildlife and birds amazing as well as beautiful gardens and landscaped areas. Rekha and Shekhar, your home and property were a perfect place to enjoy our special getaway weekend to celebrate my daughter’s 40th birthday. All the best for the future success of your beautiful property as a getaway for groups such as ours. Kind regards.
Joanne. , November 2018
(The) Place was amazing with plenty of space for all our family. Everything was clean, well set up with notes on how to use everything all over the house. Great position in the Montville hinterland.
Jenna. , November 2018
Speaking on behalf of all of us: What we wanted was a spacious, interesting retreat and what we got was beyond our expectations. We loved the sprawling nature of the house and surrounding property. The wildlife was amazing and quite exciting for the kids. You have done a fantastic job in creating an inviting home away from home.
The Rogers Family. , October 2018
We had a fantastic stay here. Thank you for creating such a lovely place.. We will be back soon.

We had an amazing peaceful stay. Thank you, Rekha & Shekhar. The ambience of the house made us feel at home. Love the peace and serenity around the surrounding.
Meera. , October 2018
Rekha & Shekhar have been great hosts. We were a group of 4 families at their property and Rekha & Shekhar made all the arrangements to make our stay enjoyable. It is fully furnished house and location of this property is just awesome with few minutes away from Kondalilla falls entry point. If it’s a good day, you will get to stay in clouds. That’s the beauty of this location. Would love to go again! Thanks, Rekha & Shekhar for being proactive and responsive as well.
Bhagath, M. , October 2018
In the heart of a beautiful area, everything at your ‘doorstep’. A well-equipped house with everything one could need, very peaceful lush surrounds. Thank you, Rekha & Shekhar.

Susan & Jake , September 2018
Quiet place with majestic views and full amenities. Shekhar and Rekha were great hosts, very quick response, well maintained home with all the amenities including the swimming pool which kids enjoyed a lot. Nirvana home was the best secluded house in the amazing nature surrounding.
Deepak P. , September 2018
Awesome house. Very private. Lovely grounds in a great location. Within walking distance to some awesome bush walks. Great hosts. Excellent communication.
Mark C-S , September 2018
This house is large, peaceful and private and everything about our stay was easy, welcoming and professional! The view makes you feel like the only place for miles. A perfect spot for a weekend catch up between a group of old friends. Being so close to the (Kondalilla) falls walk was a real bonus. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!
Clare D. , September 2018
Thanks for four wonderful days in beautiful, peaceful Nirvana. Once again, we have had a fabulous get-away.
Katherine & Friends , August 2018
Spacious house with everything you need. Even great for children as there is entertainment for them too. Beautiful location and great views. Home away from home and lovely with the fireplace in winter.
Krystal R. , August 2018
Exceptional weekend spent at Nirvana with family & friends. The scenery was breathtaking as was the wildlife. Perfect getaway at a great price and convenience! The photos that were seen online were brought to life as soon as we entered Rekha and Shekhar’s humble abode. Nothing short of amazing! Definitely recommend 🙂
Tahlia S. , August 2018
Such a beautiful house-we can’t believe how quiet it is. The birdlife is amazing- especially hand-feeding the kookaburras. Our quilting group enjoyed our long week end.
Christine. , July 2018
Thanks so much for accommodating our group at such short notice. We had such a special and memorable night together in a wonderful home. Great atmosphere. Well appointed.
Annette, Craig, Stui, Kay, Ray, Meghan, Adam & Kel. , July 2018
Rekha and Shekhar’s place was absolutely lovely. From the entrance to the interior decorations, big patio with tables and chair overlooking Flaxton. Lovely grass area around the back with a clear view of the sky for star gazing. Property is a 5mins walk to Kondalilla National park and waterfalls, short drive to cafes, vineyards and other local things to do. Definitely recommend this property and would very happily stay here again!
Misha R. , July 2018
My mum, sister, uncle, friend and 9-week-old beautiful baby had the pleasure of staying at the beautiful Nirvana. We were amazed by the beautiful surroundings and peaceful atmosphere. The house was very comfortable and gorgeous. We had a beautiful weekend away celebrating the marriage of my brother Nathan and Grace. Thank you!
Krisi, Jenny, Madeline, Peter, Janet & beautiful, gorgeous, happy baby Isabelle. , June 2018
Nirvana was absolutely beautiful. The surroundings are stunning. The house itself is exactly as advertised. The house is very spacious, all bedrooms are generously sized, huge kitchen, multiple entertaining areas and beautifully decorated. We stayed at nirvana for a wedding, it was an easy drive from Brisbane and extremely close to our two venues. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning in summer to enjoy the pool!!
Kristina, C. , June 2018

We had a lot of fun staying at Nirvana. Excellent location with the water falls just a short walk from the house.
Siddharth, April 2018
We just had the most amazing weekend celebrating our engagement at Nirvana at Montville. We can’t thank our hosts, Rekha and Shekhar enough for the amazing hospitality we experienced and also for letting us use your beautiful home for such a special celebration. We can’t wait to be back! Several of our guests mentioned they would like to book their own weekend getaway at the home as it is just so peaceful and lovely. The minute we stepped through the door, we just felt so at home. 5 stars!

Thank you for welcoming us to your lovely home. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely recommend Nirvana to friends and family. The retreat is well equipped, spacious and very relaxing. Looking forward to staying here again. Kind regards.
Jason, February 2018
Rekha and Shekhar’s place was the perfect getaway for our group of 10. It was so relaxing swimming in the pool, wandering the 3 acres of immaculate gardens and lawns and lounging on the decks taking in the stunning views. There was plenty of space and the house was clean and comfortable. Only a short walk to cafes and the rock pools at Kondalilla Falls as well. I can’t recommend this place more highly! Thanks again for letting us stay in your wonderful mountain retreat! It was definitely one of the best Airbnb experiences I’ve had! The view was spectacular, and the pool and amenities were perfect! I’m definitely recommending this to friends and relatives.
Tyler S., January 2018
Beautiful house in beautiful natural settings. You really get the feeling of Australian nature here. The house located near a wonderful national park with beautiful hiking trails, waterfall, and a natural swimming pond above the waterfall. This house is well maintained, clean, cozy, with a nice style, and a large veranda. Great for a large family. Shekhar was very easy to communicate with, super helpful and understanding. Great host! Thank you.
Marina B., January 2018
I love this home. So private, well equipped and very spacious. The views and tranquillity are second to none. The pool is a great way to cool down in the heat of summer. We loved the location and will be sure to come back for a cosy winter getaway mid-year. Thanks for your warm and welcome hospitality Rekha and Shekhar.
Kyla, January 2018
Dear Rekha & Shekhar. Thank you so much for another wonderful holiday at Nirvana. My friends and I have enjoyed a lovely, peaceful retreat in your gorgeous setting with beautiful gardens and amazing views. We are looking forward to our next girls weekend at your beautiful Nirvana.
Katherine & Friends, January 2018
We enjoyed our stay at Rekha and Shekhar’s place. The location was great and it was nice and secluded. The quality of the bedding was a particular highlight Would definitely stay again!
Tiffany Hoang, September 2017
From the genuinely friendly welcome from the owners, to the warm ambiance of the home, to the lush gardens, the cacophony of birds, and the thoughtfulness that went into furnishing and fitting out Nirvana, it was both relaxing and invigorating
It’s so close to town and some beautiful walks but if you don’t want to do anything other than just lounging on the day bed and gazing out at the garden from the front, or taking in breakfast with the birds and valley views out the back, this is the place for you.
I was so impressed with the kitchen, … everything was there. I never found myself wishing something was there that I needed and I’m a bit of a pedant when it comes to cooking!
But it’s the ambience that most impressed me. Far from feeling like a guest house, I actually felt like I was immediately at home when I arrived. There were so many separate areas too – you could be alone or with other people as you chose. The 4 teenage kids absolutely loved it. The fireplace, the games and playing cards, the DVDs, the artwork, the fruit. The kids even took to the pool despite it being winter…
I can honestly say this is the nicest place I’ve ever rented for a family holiday. Will we be back? Hell yes!
Cody Jarrett , (Excerpts from review on Trip Advisor published August 2017)
Hi Rekha & Shekhar: We had an absolutely lovely weekend staying at Nirvana with 4 other mums and our teenage daughters. It was a great place to unwind and hang out with our girls. The house was beautiful and so well equipped – we all love cooking and it was probably the best equipped holiday house kitchen I have used. it was lovely having so many different places to sit and chat. Highly recommend this for a great getaway.
Thank you – so glad we found Nirvana.
Caroline, August 2017
We had the perfect stay at Nirvana. Our party of 8 had plenty of room with comfortable bedding. We loved the lounge with the open fire, bar & Bose sound system enjoying great conversations in a very relaxing environment. Not far from the gorgeous town of Montville meant we were only minutes away from all the beautiful shops, cafes & restaurants. The gardens are gorgeous and just short stroll away from the waterfall! Loved this place and we will return. The owners were great to deal with as well! Spot on, highly recommend!
Lisa Lambert, July 2017
Had the best time in this beautiful house. Thank you for a lovely place to spend the weekend and relax-we really enjoyed it! We also had great fun playing “Just Dance” on the Wii and we highly recommend High School Musical to anyone staying: it was a great throwback!
Danielle, Jade, Hannah & Bella, July 2017
Just had an amazing weekend here with the best of friends. Fantastic location, beautifully decorated and we did not want for anything (except for running out of red wine on the last night!) Everything was beautifully presented and we felt like we were in Nirvana. Thank you so much to Rekha and Shekhar. We highly recommend this beautiful home and will be back ourselves.
Kerri Wilson , May 2017 (Reviewed on Facebook)
We were greeted by the best hosts. From start to finish their hospitality and beautiful home (absolutely stunning views and so well presented) made for such a memorable weekend. Highly recommended.
Sarah M, March 2017
Nirvana is an excellent place to getaway for a weekend. Great place for the whole family. We enjoyed watching the stars at night from deck. There’s limited mobile coverage which really helps turn off from the outside world. It’s very close to Montville shops where there’s a good selection of restaurants and boutique shopping. Lastly, the hosts are one of the best I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with on Airbnb. They are very quick to respond and the check-in process was so easy.
Dineth, February 2017
Excellent place to stay for a great time away from the city and suburbia. Thank you for letting us stay at your holiday house. We really enjoyed the quiet, relaxing time we had there.
Shaun W., February 2017
Our family had a great time at Rekha and Shekhar’s place! We all enjoyed local walking trails, the pool, playing games and the beautiful surroundings. Montville village is just a short drive away. We all had a comfortable stay and had everything we needed at the house. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us!
Danielle, January 2017
We received an email in advance and a phone call after arrival to ensure that everything was clear to us and that there were no problems. The house is stunning and has plenty of space for seven adults and two children (2 and 8), both indoors and in outdoor sitting areas. Kondalilla Falls National Park is a five-minute walk away and we couldn’t’ have wished for a better place to spend a family weekend. Thank you so much Rekha & Shekhar for letting us stay in your beautiful house.
Evelyn, December 2016
Many, many thanks for this gorgeous week end. What a beautiful place! Spacious and private. Great swimming pool We all had a great time :-)” Thank you! Best regards
Irene, December 2016
Thank you for a wonderful stay. We all (aged from 2 to 60+) had a wonderful time and hope to come again. So handy for walks too.
Evelyn, December 2016
We could not have asked for a better setting for such a lovely weekend. Rekha, Shekhar-You have done an amazing job here and we are all very thankful to experience what your hard work has gone into. Rest assured-we will be back!
Rebecca, December 2016
Awesome Weekend-the house is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for helping us getting to reach the Nirvana (sic). Cheers from all of us!
Irene, November 2016
This really is a home away from home with amazing views and spending a relaxing time with family. It’s been wonderful and would love to come back. Thank you so much for all you had to offer. I especially loved the Buddha Bar-in fact we all did…
Julie September 2016.
• This is such a beautiful place. It is so peaceful. We have truly enjoyed our time here. I look forward to coming and enjoying it again sometime. You have thought of everything!
Sandra September 2016.
The time away from family has been truly amazing. Your beautiful home was everything we hoped for. I loved the décor and everything your home offered. It’s so peaceful and beautiful here and we would love to come back at some time. Thank you so much for everything.
Kim, Colin & Danny. September 2016
Dear Rekha and Shekhar: What can I say – it was “home away from home”. I wish we could have spent more time enjoying your beautifully presented home. It was our son’s wedding on the Saturday in Maleny and I am very particular at all times about where we stay and “Nirvana at Montville” did not disappoint.
The spacious home was warm, welcoming and very comfortable, with several areas to relax, indoors and out. My family who stayed with us from Sydney and Melbourne were also very impressed with the house.
So relaxing and peaceful yet so close to Montville. I am sure we will be back! Regards.
Susan Fahir, August 2016
Nirvana is an absolutely beautiful home and helped to make the time as a family to celebrate our daughter’s wedding magical. Rekha and Shekhar were lovely and welcoming from the start. Immediately answered any questions we had and were very helpful providing all information needed before we went. The house is exactly as the pictures portray and the surrounds are absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend this house.
Sue Collins, August 2016
Another wonderful stay at Nirvana at Montville. We love this place so much that this is our 4th stay. It’s been our overseas visitors 2nd stay and they loved it just as much as the first time and it is fond memories of this place that put Nirvana top of their list of things they wanted to do on this holiday. We had our niece, her husband and 2 adult children and ourselves staying and the place is just perfect for a group (although hubby and I have stayed there on our own before and loved the serenity). A special place indeed. First time in winter so it was lovely to light the fire and sip a glass of wine or two and while away the hours chatting about life. Such a relaxing space. Thank you again for the late checkout and for allowing us access to your beautiful holiday home. Love that it is in walking distance of the falls too. We will indeed return…
Valerie and Jim Grainger, July 2016
“How lovely it was to arrive and be welcomed so warmly in person…..no notes or emails with complicated instructions about entry! The house was wonderful and SO beautifully decorated, but ultimately it’s about comfort and ease. We felt very much at home in this warm and eclectic home. Thank you so much…..and your mandarins were scrumptious!”
Donna, July 2016
We had a wonderful weekend at Nirvana, thank you. Thank you also for your generosity of a late checkout. The house was warm, welcoming and well equipped. We tried to leave it as we found it. We enjoyed it just as much as the first time we stayed and we hope to return another day. Best wishes,
Suzanne, June 2016
Great stay at NIRVANA. Beautiful Property.
We enjoyed 2 nights at Nirvana for my wife’s birthday and we could not be more happy with the whole experience. So close to many areas of interest in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland yet it felt so secluded. From the moment we entered the property’s grounds, you just felt relaxed and that’s exactly what we were wanting. The house was amazing with large bedrooms, the Buddha Bar with a fireplace (great place to end the nights), large deck areas and 3 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens and fruit trees the kids loved exploring. Walking distance to Kondalilla Falls, which made for a great morning. Definitely worth doing. 5 minutes to the centre of Montville and also not too far was Flame Hill Winery that we visited on the way home. A really enjoyable country getaway that I couldn’t recommend higher. The owners were great and very quick with reply to a request we had. Also gave a courtesy call on the first night to see if everything was OK and a few ideas for the next day. Thanks for a great stay!
Corey Dixon, May 2016
Beautiful home and such accommodating hosts! Fabulous house for a family gathering. Plenty of space & room. Great weather, great home. Lots of fun.

The Hodson Family, April 2016
Such a beautiful & relaxing place. Here for a wedding with some of our very best friends. We couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay! Our baby has just had one of the best weekends of her life! Thank you so much, we hope to be back again sometime.
McGintys & Co, April 2016
“Our hosts, Rekha and Shekhar made us feel very welcome for this our second visit to Nirvana. The property was as gorgeous and well-appointed and comfortable as we remembered. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing long weekend with occasional visits to nearby beautiful Montville and Nambour to shop and to sample the local cuisine. We are looking forward to our next visit!”
Katherine, April 2016
“Had a fantastic time at this beautiful home.”
Megan, March 2016
Thanks for welcoming us to Nirvana. Was a great relaxing time that I’m sure will be relived again.
R & S Auld, February 2016
“Thanks to Rekha and Shekhar for making our stay at Flaxton a wonderful experience. On arrival, our host gave us a call to ensure that we were happy and had everything that we needed. The property was beautiful, set in lovely gardens and with many thoughtful touches that make our stay all the more enjoyable. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and food preparation equipment, crockery, glasses, utensils, etc. We enjoyed a good night’s sleep in the quiet and comfortable bedrooms (loved the pillows). For breakfast we enjoyed sitting on the deck and taking in the wonderful views and listening to bird song. The property is close to restaurants and shops, with a great coffee shop within walking distance. We enjoyed our experience so much that we have booked another stay in a few months’ time!”
Katherine, January 2016
What a gorgeous environment to create in! So relaxing; beautiful house and stunning surroundings. Thank you for all the lovely details and thoughtful additions in this very convenient home.
Girls’ Craft Weekend, January 2016
We got married at Nirvana at Montville in 2009. A small ceremony on the veranda, with beautiful hinterland views. Friends and family still tell us how much they loved the house and how relaxed and wonderful our special day was. We intend on returning for our 10th anniversary. https://www.facebook.com/emma.l.bridges.7/posts/10154037737708243:0

Janice & David Morris, November 2015
Words can’t describe the beauty and Zen feeling of this place: the most relaxing and enjoyable holiday ever. We’ll come here again and again and recommend it to others as well. Amazing place! Amazing views! And Amazing facilities at Nirvana. Felt like home away from home. We had a great time here. Enjoyed every moment and every part of the house, front and back verandas and lawns. The sunrise and sunset views from the back veranda were amazing. We had an amazing holiday @ Nirvana. Enjoyed cooking in your home like kitchen and very nice views over the sunset sitting in the veranda. Full credit to our hosts Rekha & Shekhar.

Julie Johnson, October 2015
Hello Rekha and Shekhar. We had the most wonderful stay at your beautiful guesthouse and we will be recommending it to our friends. The wedding was all that we had hoped and the valley around the Obi Obi Hall was electric green in response to the rainfall the area had a couple of weeks ago. A breathtaking backdrop in all of the photos. We know you are very proud of both your hospitality and the presentation of Nirvana. We had such a great time at Nirvana and plan to gather there with friends at a time in the near future. Our stay at the house offered us the opportunity to host a couple of lovely gatherings of family on your spacious decks looking out over the beautiful countryside. Just beautiful. Looking forward to when we next stay. Fond regards.

Wonderful house, private location. A good place for group outing and family holiday. The decoration and facilities are wonderful. The bar area and kitchen are well designed for large group of people. Love it so much! Definitely will book again!
Wanting Zhang, October 2015
Dear Rekha & Shekhar. It’s hard to find the right words to describe your beautiful Nirvana. We have just spent the lsat five nights here and are leaving with heavy hearts! Our gathering was comprised of our close UK, USA & Victorian friends all here to celebrate our son’s wedding. We loved the house, the gardens, the wildlife the walks at Kondalilla Falls-really everything. WE hope to come back again one day. Thanks so much
The Houston Family, September 2015
My husband, myself and some close friends from interstate & overseas recently stayed in this beautiful house. We are amazed at how beautiful it is. We stayed in Nirvana for a long weekend while attending our son’s wedding. We all agreed that it was the perfect house in the perfect location. Its size, decor, attention to detail, tranquil surrounding grounds and proximity to both Montville and Kondalilla Falls was much more than we had expected. We’ve just loved it here. Thanks so much for sharing your house with us. Sorry I didn’t get to meet you. We’re very sad to leave Nirvana. We are already planning a reunion there sometime in the future. Highly recommended!
Anne, September 2015
Nirvana, a family concern, is excellent for having a wedding in the grounds of the home where family & wedding party can stay in a lovely home the night before & after the ceremony. Where else do you get a personal welcome, a gift for the bride to be & choice of where to have the ceremony?
Gleny’s, August 2015
This house suited our needs beautifully. So many extras provided…
Harris & Co., July 2015
Thank you, again. Our family really enjoyed our stay at Nirvana. We will keep coming back.
Occhino Family, July 2015
Just a quick note to thank you very much – we had a lovely weekend at the property! It’s a beautiful place. Many thanks
Kate, July 2015
Many thanks, Shekhar & Rekha, for sharing your wonderful home with my family. We really enjoyed your home. It was clean and beautifully presented. Lovely, relaxing peaceful house. So much room, excellent weather and those glorious verandas! Nice seeing and hearing all the birds. We are hoping to come back and stay for a longer period. Again many thanks for your prompt and pleasant communications and your willingness to be flexible, it was greatly appreciated. Regards.
Meyer, Ashley and Robertson, July 2015
Thank you so much for a week in your beautiful home. Five days spent relaxing with our overseas family-truly well spent. It is so inviting to relax around the fire and share meals in your fabulous kitchen. A holiday we will always remember.
Drohomyretsky’s (United Kingdom), July 2015
We loved the ambience of Nirvana. So tranquil. Such beautiful surroundings and a beautiful home.
Murphy Family, June 2015
It’s a wonderful place. !!! I will never forget the reaction of our 16 year old niece who jumped for joy when we first entered the property and kept saying “Is this all ours”. Our overseas visitors still talk about it. They are coming back next August and want to return. The peace and serenity together with the ability to be able to have your own space when there are two families staying as we were. Thank you again for opening up your lovely property to us. We will be back again soon.
Valerie and Jim, June 2015
What a lovely place to spend time with great friends. We loved everything from the misty rain to the low clouds swirling around the tree tops. Many happy hours spent around the fireplace making more fond memories and testing our knowledge with Trivial Pursuit. Everything you could ever want was here. We enjoyed the music and the bird songs. Will remember this short stay with a happy relaxed feeling. The serenity is all around you here. Thank you for sharing your house with complete strangers!
Schmidt’s, Brown’s, Parcells Lorsun’s & Gofrey’s, June 2015
A Peaceful Paradise. Nirvana is lovely. It is a place to relax and enjoy the mountain top surrounded by bushland and birdsong while in the comfort of a warm, cosy home. There were 5 couples in our group and there was plenty of room for us all to sit and enjoy the serenity by the fireplace or out on the verandas. The home has it all, great kitchen with everything you need to entertain a crowd. Comfortable bedrooms, spacious bathrooms and laundry. Short drive to Montville Village and short walk to the Kondalilla Falls. Highly recommended!!
Jeffrey, June 2015
Nirvana was absolutely wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed or stay for our family gathering to celebrate our niece’s wedding-which kept us very busy-however, peaceful mornings on the verandah & the late nights by the fire were brilliant. Everything we needed was provided. And despite being a full house and a very busy time, the house/verandah & grounds provided plenty of opportunities to get away from it all and relax. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you so much for allowing us to share your wonderful house.
Marg & Gary, May 2015
Excellent Property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Nirvana. The house is very well set out and very comfortable for a large group. The location is very private and beautiful. Very convenient to the shops of Montville and Kondalilla Falls. Fabulous accommodation would definitely come back and recommend to others.
Vicki, May 2015
Beautiful home, very secluded and fitted out well for a large group. Very relaxing. We had an awesome time!

From the minute we walked in until the time we left, there was a sense of peace-even with seven adults in the home! We are especially grateful to the owners who were extremely flexible and prompt to respond to our requests. From the bottom of our hearts: “Thank You” You have helped make our family holiday even more special. The Grainger Family. Dec.14

We wanted to have a Hen’s weekend that was memorable and having it at Nirvana was perfect. From the spacious kitchen to the lovely outdoor areas the bride to be surrounded by her friends was delighted. In fact we stayed in for our meals rather than leave this beautiful property. Highly recommend to any other families or groups looking for space and comfort. Ann. September 2014.

Absolutely beautiful house! Relaxing with a family feel. Had a wonderful time. Matthew & Priscilla. August 2014.
Outstanding and Welcoming We really enjoyed our stay at Nirvana at Montville. The place was outstanding and I felt at home immediately. We were a large group and Nirvana catered to all our needs,plenty of hot water and great heating.The owners are the nicest people and nothing was a problem for them. I was only sorry that we only stayed for two nights. I would love to return in the summer months and enjoy the outdoor pool and deck area. I would highly recommend this property. Terrey. July 2014.
What a weekend! Absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much for this wonderful house and two night stay. We seven ladies have felt incredibly comfortable and oh so relaxed. It was exactly what we needed for a break from the busy-ness of everyday life. We have already recommended it to friends and would love to come again. Thank you. Kara, Susan, Helen, Kellie, Angela,Kellie & Cardine. July 2014.
Thanks, Nirvana, for what has been a most delightful weekend. With the weather windy and cold outside, we so enjoyed sitting around the fireplace & keeping warm. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing from our busy lifestyles, taking in the fresh air & magnificent views. We certainly will keep Nirvana in mind when we next visit Montville. Phil & Debbie. July 2014
What a beautiful, comfortable retreat-so private. Can’t think of a nicer place to celebrate our 70th birthday than Nirvana. We all enjoyed the birds and gardens. So peaceful. We all hope to return to repeat our wonderful experience. Many Thanks. The Humphris Party. July 2014

From the drive up the mountains to the drive upto the house along the winding driveway, privacy and calm. The house is wonderful: beautiful decor and ambient surrounds. Nirvana is indicative to recovery for the soul, spirit and physical. Days spent by the fire were fantastic. We had no need to watch TV as we spent all the time talking, reading and relaxing by the fire. A fantastic time to be able to reconnect with the family. We hope to repeat the experience and loved the family meals prepared and enjoyed in that amazingly well equipped kithchen-dining area. I feel that for the duration of our stay, we found”Nirvana”. Namaste. Beau, Cal, Asha, Tahne, Beth and Leigh. July’13
Our stay over the weekend of 5-7 July was perfect. With 10 people staying, all family, in preparation for our daughter’s wedding(Amy Dickinson) at Palmwoods, there was plenty of room for us all without getting in each others way! It was just lovely and when time permitted,relaxing so thank you for a beautiful house. I have been telling all my friends about it. Thank you again for the opportunity of staying at Nirvana.
