Let us host you at Sylvan Grove, situated in Eagle Heights, the dress circle of gorgeous Mount Tamborine. With expansive mountain and Gold Coast views, the house has been lovingly furnished and equipped to anticipate the needs of you and your friends.
Sylvan Grove is ideal for two to four adults wanting a grown up romantic break away from the rat race and the perfect base for wedding parties and guests at weddings, special celebrations and other events. It is also the perfect location for your corporate or girls' retreat - book club, art, gym or yoga group or mother's clubs.
We understand how precious uninterrupted time away from work, home duties and responsibility for children is for busy, modern people.
Sylvan Grove has been lovingly furnished and thoughtfully equipped to anticipate your needs.
The bedding configuration provides the ultimate in flexibility. There are two double bedrooms with split king luxurious pillow-top beds that can be used as two super kings or as up to four king singles. In addition, there is a single bedroom and a double sofa bed in the lounge area. We provide crisp linen and cosy blankets and throws with plenty of pillows to ensure everyone can achieve their preferred sleeping positions and, most importantly, get a great night's sleep.
The largest bedroom has a roomy walk through robe adjoining a comfortably sized bathroom with a bath, shower, large vanity unit and toilet. The views from this room are nothing short of stunning. The second and third bedrooms have easy access to the second bathroom, which consists of a shower, vanity unit and toilet. You will find Australian made, hypoallergenic toiletries, soft and fluffy towels, bathrobes and a wall-mounted hairdryer in each bathroom.
If you love bushwalking, Australian flora and fauna spotting, picnics, swimming in crystal clear mountain streams or just enjoying the peace and natural sounds and sights of the rainforest, this is the place for you.
We will welcome you with a gift pack of wine from one of the local wineries, locally made cheese and in-season local food offerings from time to time.
Whether you want champagne cocktails whilst looking to the magical and sparkling lights of the Gold Coast, a barbecue breakfast or a sit down dinner for up to eight al fresco or indoors, Sylvan Grove can accommodate your needs. Those into cooking will enjoy the well equipped kitchen with views to die for and cook books full of suggestions or, alternatively, barbecuing on the large back deck.
The area also boasts a good selection of supermarket and other food retailers. If you prefer to eat out then our extensive manual provides suggestions. We can even pre-arrange catering at the house if you would prefer.
There are several lovely spaces in which to relax - in front of a cosy fire in the open plan living area on a cold winter's night or enjoying the view and the birdlife from one of the decks during the warmer months. You can watch TV, enjoy a board or card game, read a book from the eclectic library, just sit on one of the decks or in front of the fire with a good drop or a chai tea and chat without interruption or snuggle up for a romantic night in.
If it's early nights you are craving, then the sounds of the cicadas and frogs will lull you off whilst a lovely breeze wafts through the window of your comfortable room.
Photo backdrops aplenty are provided by the mountain and coastal views and the pretty fragrant garden we have planted for your pleasure.
We have ample parking for up to four vehicles.
Sylvan Grove is conveniently placed in good proximity to both Brisbane (less than an hour away) and the Gold Coast (about a half hour's drive away). IF you don't have your own car, we recommend a hire car from Brisbane or the Gold Coast or further afield if you are planning a longer road trip.
Enjoy the many offerings of this unique mountain location and its attractions - wineries, walks along shady rainforest paths following lovely little streams, venues for enjoying the local produce and, if you are lucky, one of the many local festivals.
Once you have stayed, we know you will start planning your next visit. Our aim is to anticipate all your needs for a true retreat, so that all you have to supply is your food, clothes and special personal items.
In the interests of "turning off" and rejuvenating by living mindfully in the moment, we have deliberately not provided wifi access at Sylvan Grove. It is of course available free of charge at various other locations on the mountain.
From the shops of Gallery Walk to the lovely botanical gardens, we promise you an experience you won't forget when you make Sylvan Grove at Eagle Heights your temporary home away from home.
