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.
We stayed for 3 nights last weekend. Fantastic views. great little cottage with all the facilities. The pool is not private as advertised though. It is shared between 3 apartment/cottages. It is very close to the restaurants which was great however the music from the pub and restaurants is very loud and went until quite late both Friday and Saturday nights, so not a place to go if you want total peace and quiet. The cottage is well equipped and is exceptionally clean and tidy. The bed was too firm for my liking and the pillows definitely need replacing. other than that we enjoyed our time there and would recommend if you can overlook the little issues mentioned. We probably wouldn't stay again as the noise from the pub/restaurant spoilt the ambience for us. Little touches like maybe a bottle of wine, or breakfast hamper would be a nice touch too.
