Having just returned from 10 glorious days on a picture perfect tropical far North Queensland away from all the crowds. Our base camp was Hooleys Beach house in Mission Beach. Could not have chosen better place to accomodate our family of four along with two grandparents who travelled all the way from Europe to join us. We have arrived on Christmas Day with all shops shut. However, our host Dora and Jamie went out of their way to collect pre ordered groceries from the local supermarket to ensure we had food for the Christmas period. The house provided all what we needed as a well cared for home away from home with ample indoor and outdoor spaces for the family. The location is right on the beach and close local amenities and short drive North or South to amazing local tourist sites. Dora and Jamie were always available and we appreciated their local knowledge and advice. We definitely return back in the near future as it was a perfect getaway.
Great stay for friends meeting half way between Cairns and Townsville. This is a rustic property with 'beach cottage' charm, as described. Lisa-Jean was fantastic to deal with. Fantastic views from the deck, kitchen was well set up and it was less than a ten minute walk to the beach (it is set up on a hill but we aren't very fit and didn't mind the walk!) Nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of Mission Beach but close enough that we could nip into town for a look.
