  • Mozart & Shakespeare

    "Hi Tania, John and I would like to thank you and your team at Hobbits Knob for the warm and caring manner shown to Mozart and Shakespeare during our recent trip to NSW. It was obvious John and I were more stressed on our return compared to the boys who had a good sniff around our suitcases and then proceeded to control our home as though they had never been away. They smelt lovely and fresh and with us giving them flea treatment and your extremely clean facilities there were no signs of fleas nor were their coats showing any signs of neglect. For all that we are proud to say how pleased we are to belong to the "Hobbits Knob" family."
  • Frankie

    "Have been the best place for my cat Frankie highly recommended. I hope all goes well for you guys and thank you for always keeping my mind at ease when he comes to stay. Thank you."
  • The Johnson's

    "Wow! How can words express how grateful we are for the good care you've taken of our babies. They've changed so much since coming here and we can't express how grateful we are for all your hard work. We hope they are as happy with us as they have been with you. I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you. We will definately send you pictures and they will definately come and stay here when we go away."Lots of love, the Johnson clan, Glenn, Michelle, Georgie, Polly & Max

He's always looked so well groomed and happy, every single sunday I've visited. Everything is 'top notch' from your gardens/presentation on arrival to your warm affectionate manner and beautiful homely areas for these family members!!. You've all well exceeded our expectations - we'll be back again."Love Hercules, Jana & Mieke xx

  • Shiko & Miss Abby

    Our fur babies Shiko & Miss Abby are currently on their third holiday at Hobbits Knob Cat Retreat. Each time they've come home happy & healthy. We're able to have great holidays because we know how well they're being looked after - to the point on this last holiday, the staff noticed our boy Shiko was not his usual self. They took him to our Vet, Naomi in Noosaville, where he needed treatment, they then collected him two days later and brought him back to Hobbits Knob...you simply can't ask for better care.....they always stay in a Sanctuary Suite and really enjoy their turn at the open area. We can't recommend Hobbits Knob Cat Retreat highly enough. Glenn & Kerry Priddle.
