A great place to stay with a beautiful rain forest garden full of butterflies. Mick and Sue are great hosts and the breakfast really is delicious. We saw the local Cassawary and would have seen her two days in a row if we were not enjoying the pool so much the first time.

Hi Tony - many thanks for the review. When the sun shines the garden is alive with lots of different butterflies including the iridescent blue Ulysses. Glad you liked the breakfast, and so glad you saw the cassowary (especially after the cassowary/breakfast call incident :-) ) All the best and love to all in sunny Bridport (including Dr Who) Mick...

We booked a night at Licuala Lodge on our way to Bedarra Island. All we can say is that we're sorry we couldn't have stayed longer! We stayed in the King suite, part of the main house, and it was magnificent. Such a beautiful, spacious room with private lounge area and ensuite and a door out onto the relaxing verandah.... More

Hi Leanne - hope your stay on Bedarra was as good as your stay here in good ole Mission Beach. I think that we are getting the word out that breakfast here at the Lodge is something special. Pity about the cassowary though - but I reckon if we see you again (maybe for a third honeymoon ?) then the... More

We chose to stay at the Licuala Lodge upon recommendation and would now highly recommend it ourselves. Unfortunately, we weren't very lucky with the weather - strong winds and rain for most of the day we stayed, but it was the perfect place to be "stranded": a beautiful home with great amenities amidst a lush tropical garden with a pool...

Hi Piosenka - many thanks for the review. Sadly we can't do much about the weather, sometimes you have to simply grin and bear it. And if you can look on the bright side of things (as you obviously do) then life is still enjoyable. Glad you liked our breakfast, and the fact that you share your breakfast time with... More

My wife and I decided to have a couple of days out of Cairns before Christmas, taking a short break away from the shopping mayhem. The experience was fantastic, quiet in the rainforest with wildlife and we saw cassowaries. Our hosts, Mike and Sue were friendly, helpful and courteous. The breakfast was special too with juices, cereals, toast and spreads,... More

Long story short, this place was excellent. The owner are very nice and helpful, supported us with maps and ideas. The breakfast was the best we had so far in Australia and the rooms were clean, beautiful and easy to reach for cars with lot of luggage. We would stay here again for sure. Chris from Hamburg

Our overnight stay was very pleasant, met guests from Germany and hosts were most hospitable. The breakfast and home cooked food was delicious. Enjoyed a quiet evening sleep and saw a cassawary and chick in the morning about 9.30am which was a bonus as they are declining in numbers. Well kept gardens and pool.

What a gem. Beautifully situated on the edge of the rainforest, with the added bonus of seeing a male cassawary and his chick. Beautiful gardens and surroundings with a lovely pool.
