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...

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...

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...

Hi Andy - glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We're very lucky to have cassowaries wander through the garden during the day. Not everyone that comes to Mission Beach gets to see a cassowary, so yes you were in luck. Sue does indeed have a wealth of local knowledge - who needs google ?? All the best Mick and...

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. The gardens are beautiful and home to lots of birdlife including the occasional visit from a cassowary and his chicks - amazing! The pool is delightful,...

LicualaLodge, Owner at Licuala Lodge, responded to this review

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...

We spent three nights in the Licuala Lodge during our five-week tour of QLD, NT and Sydney. As noted in many other reviews, the breakfasts are awesome, starting with a large bowl of the freshest fruit and followed by, if you have a big appetite, eggs any style with bacon, sausages, cooked tomato, hash brown potatoes, baked beans, toast and...

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. Shops and restaurants are only 5 minutes' drive away....

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

Once more a wonderful stay at Licuala lodge. Mick & Sue are very relaxed hosts who make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you stay two nights they even throw in a lovely bottle of wine, cheers! A short drive drive to Mission Beach which is definitely picking up after the two cyclones.

Mick has the gardens looking spectacular. Its lovely just to wander around them. The pool was awesome--so private and just the right size and temperature. We saw lots of beautiful birds and butterflies. Cassowaries are known to visit too. Breakfast was delicious and there was certainly plenty! Our rooms were immaculate and provided comfort and space. There are great amenities...
