The Mission Beach accommodation of Licuala Lodge is a unique Queenslander style home, built using timber poles and timber throughout. We have approx 2.5 acres, most of which is pristine rainforest to be found to the rear of the Queen rooms.
The lush tropical garden and the beautiful swimming pool are overlooked by the Queen room verandah. The breakfast verandah is on the upper deck of the main house with glorious views of the grounds.
Our garden is home to a great variety of exotic and spectacular tropical plants. Have a look at the Flowers page – lots of photos on there.
We grow a variety of fruits including pawpaw, pineapple, dragonfruit and passionfruit. Also several trees from the citrus family including the really weird Buddha’s Hand (check out the Flowers page). Whenever possible we grow our own tomatoes, along with several other vegetables (beans, apple cucumber, eggplant).
Our waterfall feature swimming pool has just got to be one of the best in the area. It is a decent size – 70,000 litres. You are welcome to swim and relax around the pool day or night.
To make your stay all the more enjoyable, there is a large comfortable lounge with a large TV. Lots of board games including Trivial Pursuit, chess, dominoes and cards. We know that eating out at restaurants can prove to be very expensive, so make use of our cooking facilities and two BBQ areas. Yes you can do your laundry here and Wi-Fi is available throughout the Lodge
Why stay anywhere else ???
Sue and I settle down for a quick glass on most days around six o’clock, and you are more than welcome to join us at anytime, and we can solve the world’s problems (or at least discuss them) whilst enjoying a decent Sauvignon or Shiraz. A perfect way to end another busy day.
