We are so excited to be your new home away from home!
After many years in various hospitality and community-based roles, we are now living our dream through Mountain Sanctuary. We have always loved opening our home to family, friends and visitors and we couldn’t think of a better location in the world to do it from than here – a property perched 550 metres above sea level, amongst some of the most rare and beautiful rainforest ecosystems in Australia, looking out to the Pacific Ocean.
Previously, we were the owner-managers of Maimie’s Coffee Shoppe for about seven years, a local favourite of residents and businesses alike in Springwood, south of Brisbane. The pace was fast and furious, but Tamborine has taught us a thing or two about the importance of slowing down!
We have always loved Tamborine, spending many a weekend up the mountain. We think all of our experience has helped us perfect the art of the best Tamborine getaway, but you’ll have to be the judge of that!
It’s not only human hosts waiting for you at Mountain Sanctuary – pademelons, brush turkeys, tawny frogmouth owls, green tree frogs, king parrots, black cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets and particularly happy kookaburras are all frequent visitors to the property. If you find yourself missing your beloved pooch at home, Ellie-May and Jethro are happy to oblige in fulfilling your need for pats and cuddles.
In addition to continuing the B&B, we hope to one day use Mountain Sanctuary as a retreat for couples who want to better their relationship, using Linda’s expertise as a trained counsellor.
We eagerly look forward to meeting you and ensuring you have a truly mountain-top experience with us.
