At Noosa Valley Manor we strive to be genuine, to give care beyond expectations and to ensure that all the little things are looked after. Our attention to detail sets us apart, whether it’s the fresh organic produce, the candle lights at night, the organic bathroom products in a chemical free environment or the soft fluffy bathrobes. You will notice exquisite hand stitched Italian linen napkins, freshly pressed tablecloths and pretty china teacups & saucers.
We see to it that every detail is covered, slices of fresh juicy lemon served with pots of tea and even a true Italian espresso can be made if you so desire! Posies of fresh flowers and herbs adorn the home and the uplifting fragrance of pure essential oils fills the air. As your hosts at Noosa Valley Manor we understand what service is about and appreciate that everyone is unique, therefore desiring a unique experience.

Some snippets from our guest book:
This has been an exceptional experience! You made me feel at home and spoilt with the food and most of all your generosity. Daagfin (Norway)
Thank you for a wonderful 5 days in your beautiful accommodation. Your meals were superb and we can tell that your life experiences and personalities have coalesced to give us the perfect B&B hosts. Reddall & Deidre
Well R&R at the B&B, how often I have composed my tribute to your exceptional haven – the divine garden (DONT ask how many photos I’ve taken), the tranquil retreat/bedroom, the scrumptious, superbly presented meals, cuppas & Bircher meusli, but how do I describe the warmth, the love, the passion in your actions and words? I’ve basked in you care, shared your special family and feel emotional about leaving. Love Lesley (Melbourne)
Words can not describe how thankful we are for the amazing wedding day you put together for us. You went above and beyond and made our day the most intimate perfect day imaginable.
The decorations, set up and spectacular food made was better than we ever imagined. Thank you so much…We will never forget it! Love Kellie and Nate xxx (Brisbane)
Thank you. We feel blessed to have found your lovely home and to have met you both. The pride you take in what you do is beautiful and your hospitality is greatly appreciated. Renate’s attention to detail and Roberto’s flare in the kitchen combined with a very comfortable room and loving kindness made this an unforgettable stay for us. We will be back. H&A
WOW! Thank you for the wonderful experience! We really enjoyed our stay here, the beautiful accommodation and fantastic food. Worthy of all the praise which we have seen on Trip Advisor. This is the beginning of our stay in Australia, and is a hard act to follow. Thank you Keth & Sheila UK

Thankyou R&R for a wonderful afternoon, evening and morning. We love the atmosphere you have created both inside and outside your delightful home. Peaceful & beautiful!Our evening dinner was totally delicious, served outside in a spectacular setting. Why would anyone not dine in? Roberto is a very talented chef. Breakfast was another delight. We will tell the world about this unique B&B. And we will return whenever we are back in this area, a long way from Sydney but worth the trip. Good luck with the wedding project. A perfect venue. Jan & Graham Sydney
Pulling into the driveway we knew we had arrived at a special place! Being greeted by both Renate & Roberto was like a beautiful rush of love, enthusiasm for life and happiness! The serene surroundings, the divine offer of tea/coffee, hospitality and amazing food. The breakfast was divine (something we have never experienced). The way that you open you home to others and share your life is a pure gift – please keep giving because you are touching people’s lives. The night away to nurture our love was perfect in this amazing “love filled” palace! Thank you beautiful people, we will be seeing you again for sure. Disa & Kev Gold Coast

What a wonderful experience. As this was my first B&B I did not expect the hosts to be so exuberant, the meals superb & the surroundings so incredibly relaxing. You are creating a unique B&B and I know your business will propsper because of your passion for it. My sister wrote “I am lost for words” thank you both. Jan Mt Tamborine

The experience of coming here is like going back to heaven and rediscovering the Garden of Eden! To see the extreme difference of coming from the desert (Bob’s country) to a rainforest and meeting up with extended family is an honour and joy we will carry with us always. The beauty you have created is the beauty within both of you, and the love that exists here is the love that needs to be spread out throughout the world. We love you Uncle Bob & Barbara
There is no pleasure quite like the pleasure of being welcomed into a wonderful home, served a delicious meal, and being offered every hospitality. Roberto, Renate and their charming daughter are national treasures. Caroline Sydney
Two amazing people with a gift for making other people feel special. After having such a horrible week it was such a relief to come to a place like this, wind down and feel like you are the only two people in the world. The effort you both went to ….the incredibly amazing table settings that you created Renate….to the amazing food that was creatively put before us by Roberto (we ate in 3 nights). Nothing was ever too hard or too much hassle. A place where we can picture ourselves getting married. Thank you both for your kindness and genuine hospitality! Nathan & Kellie Brisbane
The peace & serenity, delicious food were only surpassed by the graciousness of you both. Our first trip to Oz has been a wonderful experience. thanks to you both – we will be back. Alan & Bernie Long Beach CA
I knew that I knew just by looking at your marvellous website that you guys would not disappoint. I love everything that you have done – your use of colour, furnishings, scents, flora, decor etc etc. But most of all its your spirit and the passion & respect you have for your clientele that resonates….This place made me feel like Alice in Wonderland! Thank you for making my 50th so memorable – I am coming back! Eleni Brisbane
I am lost for words – you guys have a healing place here – you are amazing! Thank you Sue Toowoomba

From the moment we entered the gardens filled with beautiful flowers, sculptures, and the house filled with art and decoration, we knew this was a special place created by special people. We honestly had a magical time – the best B&B I think we’ve ever experienced. The dinner was gorgeous (make sure you call in advance to see if you can experience their amazing Italian seafood!) and the breakfast perfect including coconut juice, an incredible fruit cup, and creamy eggs from their own chickens. Roberto and Renata are generous, caring, and supremely competent hosts and and chefs. They are also creative, worldly, and wonderful people – we had a great time getting to know them and swapping stories. We always felt relaxed and comfortable, and did not want to leave! The location is peaceful, suburban, only 15-20 minutes drive from Hastings St. We can imagine this B&B becoming booked up months in advance once the word gets out.

Thank you for creating such a magical & caring environment. It is the best B&B we have ever stayed at. You are fabulous, creative fascinating people and your place reflects this. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The gardens are spectacular and lush. We thought we’d died and gone to heaven! Liz (Vermont)

Renate & Roberto have created an oasis of tranquility and excellence. In an era when hospitality so often consists of average standards and mediocre food it is obvious immediately on arrival that they are very different. Every minute spent at Noosa Valley Manor reinforces that impression. A genuinely caring attitude, an amazing attention to detail and maintenance of the highest possible standard in every area. Renate & Roberto are showered with praise in their guests books an on various websites because they really deserve it all and more besides. In all our travels around the world we have rarely met a couple who have worked so hard to make our stay as close to perfect as it is humanly possible to achieve. Thank you to you both, lovely people a great team and hospitality professionals with your very fingertips. Janet & Mike (UK)

This is our second stay in your beautiful home and as the first stay this one was just superb. Your hospitality, warmness and openess is just amazing! It is such a delight to be able to relax and be waited on! The food at dinner and breakfast is truly an experience. We know that we will be back (how could we go past such fantastic hosts). Dr Chris & Judy (Teiotville)

We are so sad to be leaving after a brief overnight stay because we sincerely found all aspects of our experience totally perfect. in particular we’re so glad to have opted to have our dinner here rather than going out to a restaurant with friends. Both dinner & breakfast were prepared and presented with such skill. We both enjoyed every mouthful. Thank you both for treating us in such a friendly yet totally graceful manner. You’re doing a fabulous job and deserve to be one of Australias truly great B&B’s. Brian & Lynda (Nambucca Heads)

The Scandinavians have a word for what you have created – “hygge” – a unique mix of comfort, character, warmth and friendship. Thank you for a memorable stay in Queensland.
You cannot be recommended too highly. E&I (London)

What a blessing it was that accommodation in the centre of Noosa for the triathlon was sold out! I can honestly say that I have never had such a wonderful 4 days time out – heaven! Peace, tranquility, magnificent food and looked after like a King. Guy (Singapore)
27 October 2013
My wife has waited 35 years for a B&B experience and with R&R we hit the jackpot. Ambience is fantastic, the food is top shelf, surroundings so peaceful. We sat around & relaxed for 2 days feeling very guilty at the way R&R looked after us. The perfect weekend package. You wont find better!!! Kev & Sharyn (Brisbane)

We spent 3 wonderful days in your B&B and will never forget the time with you. From the very beginning we felt at home. Everything is so individual & designed with love. The beautiful garden, the interior of the home, or preparation of delicious food. we travel a lot and love staying in smaller B&B’s. Yours is definitely one of the best ever. Gerd & Tina (Germany)

This is definitely the nicest place we have been since our travel through Australia. You made out honeymoon unforgettable. Thank you for the wonderful dinner with all the lights, nature noises and really amazing food. It was a very romantic evening for us. Your hospitality makes your B&B better than every 5 star hotel 🙂 It was a pleasure to stay here – the honeymooners from Austria Nicole & Peter

Awesome, breathtaking, divine, excellent, perfect… If you have the chance to stay at this place do it! We have stayed for 3 nights and we fell in love straight after arriving at this great place. The rooms are perfect, the garden is amazing and the food is out of the universe. We booked the dinner option for our first evening and have been spoiled in terms of service and food. Renate & Roberto created a delicious dinner for us and right after the starter we made our booking for the second evening. What the guys are doing in the kitchen is a dining experience!! Even the breakfast is just great with fresh fruits and delicious egg variations. This house if full of great and positive energy and we had such a special and great time here.
They treat their guests with such a passion that you really feel like a king. It is hard to describe this perfect location and the only way to understand is to stay there.
We had an amazing time and hope that we can come back very soon. (Benjamin & Josipa – Changsha)
To the most beautiful people we’ve met for many a year, thanks from the bottom of my heart for looking after us so well. Ron & Teena (Brisbane)
R&R = R&R! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed, relaxed and loved. We’d come back in a heart beat! Jan & Pearl (Melbourne)
We have enjoyed our stay so much we really do not want to go home. Your home is lovely, we can’t fault anything. Top marks for everything, & when I want a break – I know where to come.
Phillip & Deidre (Brisbane)
Thank you both so much for providing us with a relaxed friendly, tranquil base whilst we holidayed from chilly Victoria. Whilst this was our first stay in a B&B, we won’t be looking too hard to find another in the Noosa area. Your service, smiles & family made us feel right at home. You have great facilities & beautiful gardens. Congratulations on a 5 star B&B, we look forward to returning as soon as possible. PS The food was to die for!!
Dean & Lisa (Gippsland)
We absolutely loved staying at this wonderful haven you have created. Thank you for your hospitality & the divine home cooked food! We hope to be back again! Hannah & Ben (Sydney)
You are so welcoming I feel like I’m “home”. You have made a haven for body & soul & I will be back, so keep my room for me! Thank you for your kindness & generosity. Sue (Toowoomba)
Your hospitality, your home & your amazing cooking! Dinner was so amazing & always breakfast was fantastic. The experience you create here just makes us grow closer as a couple. Nathan & Kathryn
So far the best B&B we have ever been in. What I like most is everything is full of little details which really make you feel at home. Divine breakfast!!! Mmmmm……I will always remember the beautiful garden. Paula & Paco (Spain)
Thank you for an amazing weekend away, beautiful breakfast & beautiful home, we instantly felt welcome & at home like we were staying with friends. We absolutely cannot wait to return, it’s just what we needed and you two helped to make it perfect! Chelsea & Aran (Brisbane/USA)
Thank you R&R. Your beautiful home exceeded our expectations. We had the most relaxing girls weekend away (breakfast in our pj’s & robe, what more can we say!) You made us feel so welcome & couldn’t do enough to make our stay perfect. We loved staying in for dinner& having a few wines in front of the fire, & would love to come and stay with you again. Kerri, Kath & Deb (Sunshine Coast)
Just the best B&B we have experienced. We stayed for 2 nights, had the most glorious dinner on the first night, beautifully cooked & presented. Roberto & Renate you are wonderful hosts with an amazing place to show your passion for what you are doing. We will be back again for more of your hospitality. Phil & Jo (Brisbane)
Thank you for a really gorgeous stay. Lovely hosts xx and Roberto – the best supper – wish we’d eaten here the first night. Love your art Renate & the flowers. I wish you all the very best here & many years of success, joy & fulfillment. Nicola (Perth)
We feel that we have been totally spoilt. We did not know what to expect when we came here, but we have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything. Your warm hospitality and the amazing food have made it an Anniversary we will fondly remember. We look forward to coming back again. Mark & Junko (Sunshine Coast)
Well, what can we say about you both? You two are a truly remarkable couple. You made us both soooo welcome upon our arrival here. Your home is just so beautiful, cozy and so tastefully decorated. We both feel as though we have known you for many years – we felt so comfortable. The dinners, breakfasts, morning and afternoon teas were to die for!! We both did feel like a King & Queen. The gardens are a delight & the freshly laid eggs for brekky were sensational. Nothing was too much trouble!! We will be back & we will tell all our friends & family! Marg & Robin (Hervey Bay)
Thank you R&R for opening your home and hearts to us. It made our mother/daughter escape from the city just perfect. We loved our breakfasts on the terrace in the sun! Liz & Rachael (Brisbane)
As this is one first stops in Australia (during our honeymoon!), the standard for our next stays has been put at a level that will be hard to reach, let alone be beaten….and that’s all because of your amazing hospitality & friendliness, your beautiful home & garden, the fantastic food (the dinner was divine! So was breakfast) You really make us feel at home! As we live on the other side of the world, it will not be easy to return – but if we do in the future we will. Roel & Caroline (The Netherlands)
