A warm welcome by the owners, beautiful secluded spot. The house is a very well designed and maintained kind of plantation building. The infinity pool is great. Everything is done with care and a good eye for beauty. The breakfast is sumptuous and served on the upper porch. For travelers that want to cook their own dinner there is a... More

We were amazed by how beautiful this place was. We had the King Suite which was characterful and a lovely 2 roomed apartment. (We also forgot to return our key... So sorry and we hope it arrived back safely.) Mick and Sue made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was our favourite in the whole of our trip. We... More

Hi Pollyanthus - yes we did get the key back, thanks :-) It's amazing how many people do leave with the key, and of course it's always my fault for not asking for the key. But on the bright side everyone has sent back the key, which goes to show that all our guests are wonderful people. Thanks for staying... More

We stayed for five nights at Licuala Lodge and it was a great base from which to enjoy all Mission Beach has to offer. The ensuite rooms are separate from the main house just accross the superb garden. There is a shared lounge with TV and cooking facilities. The premises borders the rainforest so it is very quiet except for... More

Hi Andy - glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We're very lucky to have cassowaries wander through the garden during the day.

We booked the King Suite for the week after Christmas for 3 nights. This is of course the wet season in this part of the world! The room was spotless, well appointed, and spacious.

Hi Skybeau - thanks for the review. We are always aware that the weather at this time of the year can be very changeable and if guests need to leave a day or two early then that's fine by us. There is plenty of shade around the pool, so guests can either soak up the sun by the pool or... More

Sue and Mick were extremely welcoming hosts. Beautiful accommodation with verandas overlooking wonderful gardens, fringed by rainforest. Lovely outdoor pool, and the breakfasts here are a real treat (two winning formulae as far as our teenage boys were concerned). We used the great self-catering kitchen and dining room on one evening.

Lovely property set in beautiful colorful tropical gardens. Rooms are very comfortable and very clean. Location is great and only a few km to Wongaling and mission each. Breakfast served on the veranda was tasty and plentiful. The home baked bread and cakes delicious. We will return to Licuala Lodge
