Ditch the usual Sunshine Coast’s sea views for the mountain magic at Scandi at Maleny in Booroobin QLD.
Perched 450 metres above sea level on 300 pristine acres in the Sunshine Coast hinterland, the adult-only cabin brings a touch of Scandinavian style to Australia.
Owners Pete Coorey and Dee Montalva built Scandi at Maleny with a huge focus on sustainability.
“Scandi is a modular build, and this alone makes our cabin more sustainable from the get-go,” Dee said.
The couple describe the design as “engineering perfection”. Constructing it off-site ensured quality control, fewer building materials and less waste.
“Every item in the cabin was considered in regards to where it was made and where it came from, favouring local products and suppliers where possible with extra points for environmentally-friendly aware brands,” Dee said.
Inside the focus on sustainability continues; they operate off rainwater only, and have a self-recycling septic system with the treated water used to maintain the gardens.
Getting in touch with nature
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom modular cabin’s design statement is cool, crisp Scandinavian simplicity. The concept allows the spectacular natural surrounds to take centre stage.
Just 12 minutes from Maleny, the cabin offers dramatic views across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland’s volcanic landscape and valleys.
Step out onto the northwest facing deck and take in the stunning views across the Blackall range. The sunrise and sunsets you will witness from this spot will confirm you are in a truly remarkable place in the world.
