“"A Tropical Escape" - Describes this haven perfectly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

What a lovely and relaxing stay we had. We were greeted and made welcome as soon as we arrived. Our new "home" was beautiful, clean, spacious and so easy to settle in and enjoy Dot & Noel's hospitality. A trip out to the nearby islands topped off our "tropical escape". What a lucky find we found in this B&B which we would certainly recommend to anyone. Hope to revisit so thanks again Dot & Noel. Cheryl & Ian from Melbourne.

Brilliant accommodation for having a comfortable lovely stay. Never met such hospitable host. Giving you the feeling of being part of their family. Very comfortable beds and clean rooms. Tasty breakfast with bacon, variety of eggs, fresh fruits, cereals and real coffee.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B for five nights. When we arrived we were amazed by the beauty of this wonderful venue. Up until this time we have never spent time in a B&B but thanks to Dot and Noel and their wonderful service,( nothing was too difficult a request) we will indeed spend holiday time with them. We are aware that it will be difficult to find another as good as Trorpical Escape.
Thanks a million Dot and Noel.

We stayed at this amazing place for two wonderful nights in July. The hosts are caring, breakfast is delicious. The spot is absolutely clean and looked after.
If you are looking for a secluded beach this is the place to go. From the B&B it is only 8 Minutes to the beach, which is amazing. We could just recommend going there.

I stayed in this B&B in November 2012 for 2 nights and truly enjoyed my stay. Dot and Noel are wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming, taking care of you 100% and giving advice on trips to the area. They really made me feel at home. Not to forget that the breakfast is really yummy and highly recommendable! I can highly recommend to stay at A Tropical Escape B&B and would always return there should I come back to Mission Beach.

4 of us stayed here in Nov 2012 for 2 nights and it was a real treat. Dot and Noel were really welcoming and Dot's breakfasts were superb. A cassowary called for his breakfast of bananas both mornings we were there and Noel took us to a wildlife sanctuary where there were lots of orphaned wallabies that we could hold. He also drove us to a local eating place and then came back afterwards so we could have a glass or two without having to drive. There is a fridge in each room for your duty frees and also a communal area where you can help yourself to tea,coffee and soft drinks etc.
A Tropical Escape is so relaxing and was such a lovely break on our drive up the coast.

My wife and I stayed here early in December 2012 for 3 nights.
It's is an excellent B&B. it seems to have 4 1/2 stars from the tourist authorities, I can't understand why it doesn't have 5 stars, there must have been a leaf out of placed somewhere!! I couldn't fault it.
Dot &Noel are excellent hosts. Dot's breakfasts are brilliant, just the thing to set you up for,the day.
There are just 3 rooms in a purpose built bungalow, with the owners being at the other end of the building from the guests. There is a very large lounge, eating, entertaining room. Both our bedroom and bathroom were large, and beautifully decorated and perfectly clean.
The B&B is in a quiet street, a very short walk from a beach and a short drive to the shops and restaurants.
Whilst we were there, there were another couple and the tales exchanged over breakfast were side-splitting. Ask Dot and Noel to tell you about the couple with the swearing parrot!!!!
There are a number of local restaurants, Scotty's and Miller's, and North Mission Beach is not far away with more restaurants.
We recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the Mission Beach area
