We thought it might be nice to tell you a bit about ourselves. Most businesses today are all about getting the sales and getting the job done and sometimes we forget that we are in the “people” business and it’s nice to share personal things (although not too personal!!)
Lyle bought the Montville Mountain Inn in October 2006 after a long career in Melbourne and Sunshine Coast managing pubs and nightclubs.
Back then the bookings were all done manually and Lyle had to learn to make a bed and clean a bathroom or two.
In the meantime, I was busy myself raising three kids, and working on my fitness business up near Bundaberg. When the kids all left and grandchildren started to arrive I decided to move closer to my family and moved to Sunny Coast at the end of 2014.
Lyle and I met on 1st May 2015 and have been together ever since. It was definitely a “wow” moment and Lyle proposed in October that year, and we were married in August 2016.
I have been helping in the business by doing all the social media and marketing and trying to add my “expertise” whenever and wherever I can (or I am allowed too!).
Working and living together has so far been a happy experience and we both love meeting new people and sharing our beautiful part of the world.
Last year we had a holiday in Spain and Portugal for a month and absolutely fell in love with both countries, especially after doing our Ancestry.com DNA which showed Lyle having 11% Spanish ancestry and me having 6%. (Lyle now calls himself Carlos haha) Our plan is to hopefully go back next year.
We both like to keep fit and healthy and spend our days off hiking the local tracks and trying out the local cafes.
We love having fun and probably one of our favourite things to do is to eat nice food, in nice restaurants, with nice people, drinking nice wine.
Please make sure you drop in and say hi next time you are in Montville.
Leanne and Lyle
