We went to Mission Beach to stay for a night before we went skydiving the next day. All I can say is that Dot and Noel made our experience absolutely wonderful. They drove us to a great local joint, Scotty's, and also talked to us about the different places we could go and explore in Mission. Dot made an excellent...

We stayed at Dot and Noels home for 3 nights back in Sept 2012. Their B&B has everything that anyone would want in a B&B. Situated in a very quiet street, it has off street parking, walking distance to the beach, plenty of room to sit and talk, a very comfortable bed, great hot shower with plenty of water pressure,...

We stayed here for one night to break up a drive from Cairns to Airlie Beach. Once we arrived, we wished we were staying longer. Dot and Noel, the owners are lovely people, made us feel so welcome.

A perfect stay in Dot and Noel's beautiful home; we couldn't have been made more welcome. Great location, wildlife and plenty of things to do. You must stay here if you are ever in Mission Beach - you'll regret it if you don't!
