Sunshine Coast lodge unveils boutique transformation ahead of opening

Australia’s Sunshine Coast will soon welcome heritage boutique accommodation with the opening of Maleny Lodge on May 30.

The outback property dates back to 1905, when it was known as Rosedale, and it’s been a restoration project for owners Andrew and Lucy Pink since they bought it in 2021.

“It’s been a very delicate balance between preserving the property’s distinctive heritage character and renovating it for the ultimate in contemporary luxury,” said Andrew Pink.

” It’s all in the details. Our seven individually designed rooms are not only beautiful, but we have designed them with the comfort of our guests in mind.

The couple are also responsible for the recent transformation of a 1980s motel in Maroochydore into Loea Boutique Hotel.

Adults-only accommodation includes four large en-suite bedrooms, all named after the original family members who lived there, luxury bathrooms with handcrafted handcrafted tiles, furnishings and knick knacks vintage, balancing modern comfort and luxury finishes with old world charm and original features.

The original part of the house, which includes a fully equipped country kitchen, living/dining room and outdoor dining area, is also available to rent as a complete property.

The owners expect Maleny Lodge to attract special events including small weddings, retreats, gatherings and film shoots.
