Just realised I hadn't got around to writing a review after our stay here in Oct 2011, but thought I would put this to right as Dot & Noel were such excellent hosts and deserve the courtesy. From the first moment of our stay in Mission Beach when Noel picked us up from the Greyhound coach to the time he came to drop us off 2 days later, this place was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them. The bedroom was fantastic, so clean and comfy - and had direct access to the lovely gardens and pool. Every thought had been given to making our stay as wonderful as possible. Dot gave us a personal tour of the area, even taking us to the supermarket to pick up bits and pieces for our evening meal and BBQ - you certainly don't get that level of service very often!! We were travelling as a couple and were the only people booked in, so was wonderful to be able to talk for hours to them about life in Oz, inc. showing us through photos of the devastation of the cyclone and their adventures. I also believe that they would take the initiative from you and leave you alone if that is what you want. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
