“Peaceful, relaxing accomodation with a spectacular beach on your doorstep.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2009

We arrived to a friendly welcome from the host who provided us with comprehensive information about the area including restaurants and a list of the variety of things to do.
The room was spotless, airy and comfortable with modern bathroom and kitchen facilities. Nothing was lacking.
The unit looked out onto a landscaped pool and BBQ area and beyond to Dunk Island.
The accomodation is directly across the road from an amazing beautiful sandy beach. There are so many activities available in the area it is hard to list them all.
We particularly liked watching the sun rise over the water and walking along the beach to the local shop to get the morning paper.
The only thing we didn't like was having to leave this lovely spot.

There could not be a more perfect place to stay at in South Mission Beach than Taihoa Holiday Units. The location with a view of the beach and Dunk Island (just across the street), with palm trees swaying in the breeze makes you feel like you're in a South Pacific island getaway. Walks on a long sandy beach and rarely anyone in sight was great!
The amenities--pool, barbecue, laundry facilities were an added bonus. The owners/managers, John & Tracey were very informed about places to visit and things to do in the area. The units were well kept and very clean.
I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to everyone looking for the ideal place to stay at in North Queensland.

Undoubtedly the best place we have stayed in the Mission Beach area. The location is brilliant, with the sea lapping gently a few meters from your front door. Each unit has a small kitchen complete with everything. It was wonderful to sit outside, look across the pool with the ocean and Dunk Island in the background. Truly peaceful and great value for money. And the bit we liked best was that it is a child free zone. We'll be heading back first chance we get. Big thumbs up. George and Connie

Are you heading to Cairns in Queensland?, then you should really consider going south to Mission Beach. We had not pre-booked any accommodation, and were very lucky to find this place - just from driving along the coast road. We stayed at Taihoa Holiday Units at South Mission Beach and it was excellent. The owners John & Tracy were really friendly, giving us great suggestions on places to visit. Accommodation was all you could ask for, large rooms, kitchen facilities; even a laundry included in the price - was I glad of this after 2 weeks of travelling! The units overlook the beach, with magnificent views of Dunk & Bedarra Islands. Their website is:- [--]. If you are heading towards this part of the world, then do yourself a favour and check out this accommodation. So nice to be able to walk from your room to the beach - no stairs, or long walkways to navigate, so access is available to all.
