“A tropical paradise in a tranquil setting, coupled with excellent hospitality”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

We arrived at night, having driven from Cairns airport. It took us about 2 hours to get to Boutique Bungalows, we were tired, and had lost the directions. However, after a couple of phone calls with Steve, we arrived.
We were greeted by Steve and Sharon, and directed to a Thai restaurant where we grabbed a take away meal. Breakfast in the morning was in a great setting, enhanced by a display of rescued animals, which we were able to handle. Breakfast was comprehensive and varied.
The beach is about 5 minutes walk from Boutique Bungalows, and goes for miles.
This was our first visit to the area, and we did not realise that Mission Beach, Wongaling Beach (where Boutique Bungalows is situated) and South Mission Beach are some kilometres apart. Therefore, having a car is a distinct advantage, as Boutique Bungalows is a bit isolated. Having a car allowed us to visit a number of sights, and eat at Mission Beach and Wongaling Beach.
Boutique Bungalows comprises just three bungalows, set so that you are quite unaware of the other two. The pool is really great, and set amongst tropical vegetation.
The sounds made by tropical birds from well before dawn and late in the afternoons is something we will always remember.

We arrived pretty late and it was nice to be welcomed with a smile and a cupcakes! It was a great pleasure to meet the lovely hosts and we had great talked with them and it seemed like we are long lost friends:) Glad we decided to stay there for couple of days on our last days in Australia. It felt that we are visiting our dear friends. The bungalow where we stayed was cozy and clean. The bed and pillows are comfy and i have no negatives comment about our stay. The pool is heaven and breakfast setting is nice and we all were given a chance to hold and feed baby wallabies. I missed everything there. I would recommended this place for longer or short stay:)

Room Tip: Make sure the bungalow doors and windows are shut, unless you are friends with mozzies.

We had a lovely time at these beautiful bungalows, they are spotlessly clean and well equipped and the pool is surrounded by beautiful tropical trees and plants and is simply stunning they are also only a short drive to mission beach itself.
We were lucky enough to see a Cassowary walking along, which was a bonus.
Sharon and Steve are so passionate about the wildlife they rescue and the best bit was the cuddles with Ginger, the baby wallaby which they have rescued, that was so special.
Thank you both for the lovely the cakes each afternoon,fantastic breakfasts each morning, the dinner reservations you made for us and the places you recommended to visit on our travels.
If you want a private romantic hideaway then these are for you.

This place is an adorable little hideaway in Mission Beach. We had 2 wonderful nights here and only wish we could have stayed longer. The bungalows are spacious, well equipped with everything that a person could want, (well- a clothes washer would be a nice addition, but I understand their reason for not providing one - and I think Sharon will do your laundry for an additional fee) and well-arranged. Although the property itself is not that large, it is nicely landscaped so that each bungalow is completely private and feels like a secluded retreat - we didn't even know there were other people staying there until we met at breakfast in the morning. There are wallabies hopping around the property, and a cassowary also wandered by our porch.
Steve and Sharon are great hosts - they know a lot about the area, and took the time to find out what we wanted to do and to help us arrange it. Our first night they got us dinner reservations and arranged for us to have transportation to and from the restaurant, and they also pointed us to nearby sights and helped set up a cruise for us to go on. Breakfast was fabulous, and Sharon also does wonderful baked goods for afternoon tea- what a treat after a day of sightseeing! My husband is celiac and must stay on a gluten-free diet but that didn't seem to bother her a bit - she produced gluten-free pancakes for breakfast and a chocolate torte to die for!
Hopefully we'll get there again!

This is an unbeatable place.
We were just amazed by Sharon&Steve.

They are doing a great job and the bungalows are great.

We have been there only for two nights but we will come again.

They gave us great hints where to go, what to do and much more.
Their little zoo in the backyard and house is just great and such a nice thing as you can explore the wildlife just by stepping out of your door.

The breakfast is amazing and all the little things around makes it a perfect stay.

The accommodation is super clean and you have everything you need.

Food amazing, service out of the universe and the location is perfect.

We highly recommend this place and as mentioned we will come back asap.

Look no further, if there is a vacancy for when you are going to be here grab it quick before someone else does! We had a wonderful stay.
The cabin we had was spotless and very comfortable. The included breakfast was a surprise as I did not expect it for the price we paid and WOW what a spread!
Sharon and Steve are great hosts and justifiably take great pride in what they have created. The information that Sharon gave us for the rest of our trip was great, so nice to get some good local knowledge.
Don't wait book now.
