The Eyrie is simply outstanding – on all counts. Ex-Somerset and ex-Sydneysider Peter seems to know everyone and within minutes we found (most do apparently) that we shared friends.....

.... He and June renovated the honey-coloured timber house making it one room deep, filling it with antiques and adding a sheet-glass window along the whole front wall to make the most of possibly the best view in the Glass House Mountains. Guest rooms are large and sophisticated and all open from the verandah on one side through to private terraces and the view on the other. The marble bathrooms are exemplary, as are the bedrooms generally. June is a fantastic chef and, behind a glass wall that trickles with water, bustled away in the kitchen, seamlessly producing a five-star banquet. I had to drag myself away from the final round of smooth cheeses, fruits, home-made truffles, tokay, liqueurs, laughter and stories and head to bed. The house really does perch peak top on a slice of land that drops away steeply on all sides (the pool, spa and tennis court do too and it could take some time to retrieve a wayward tennis ball). The distant ocean shimmers beyond the Sunshine Coast and the forested coastal plain stretches from the city fringes to the base of the Eyrie cliff. Lightning storms and sunrises are magnificent. Peter offers a taxi service from nearby restaurants. Glass House Mountains and Australia Zoo 10 mins.[i/]
