We did a 2 night stay here while exploring Mission Beach and I felt as though I was staying in paradise. The gardens and pool are just beautiful, and the rooms have a lovely veranda and chairs outside for sitting and enjoying it. Breakfast was delicious, with a huge range of things to choose from. Would definitely recommend this b&b... More

We have not long returned from a family holiday in Australia, during which we were lucky to have spent the last 6 days staying in this beautiful location.

As other reviewers have said, Licuala Lodge is a beautiful place to stay. The gardens are so beautiful and relaxing. We could not have been happier with our accommodation either. We stayed in the King Suite, which had a beautiful bedroom, ensuite bathroom and separate sitting/lounge room. The hosts are wonderful and welcoming. Included in the tarrif is a delicious... More

Hi Marie - sadly not much that we can do about the weather - it is what it is. When we are away on holiday then all of us would I'm sure prefer warm, sunny, dry days. Rain is OK if there is just a little bit. But on the bright side, walking in the rainforest in the rain is... More

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

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.

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.
