I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

A Paradise of Peace in Witta
Parklands Guesthouse Retreat is a piece of paradise in Witta. Very spacious beautifully decorated accommodation in 1 acre of gardens and rainforest. One wing of Jo-Anne and William Dickinson's home becomes a private retreat for up to four guests.
Two stylishly decorated queen bedrooms, a large comfortable lounge room, three way bathroom, laundry and well equipped kitchenette as well as two outdoor sitting areas, and use of the gardens are the recipe for a perfect getaway.
The kitchen is stocked with basic pantry items and some treats such as home grown eggs, local milk and jam. Maleny is a short drive away and there is a small store & restaurant within walking distance.
The atmosphere is one of relaxation and welcome and it is easy to get used to the bird calls and the various frog calls. The hosts are very friendly but unobtrusive. After the initial introductions and tour you won't see them unless you make contact. The house is very clean with quality linens, fittings and furnishings but the garden setting is its best point.
The booking process was very easy through Stayz and it was great to get an informative email from Jo prior to our stay. Parklands Guesthouse Retreat is the place to go to recharge the batteries and blow away the mental cobwebs.
