Right on the beach. Easiest check in I've ever done. The room was clean & everything worked.

Thanks for the review. We try to make your stay at Taihoa as smooth and relaxing as possible, starting with your check in. The beach is just across the road and you can walk or just relax on the beach in one of our guest beach chairs. We hope to see you again.

Taihoa Mission Beach South for Great relaxation

Pros: Peaceful, great pool, beach views, kitchenette, relaxation.
Location: Walking tracks, beach, Mission Beach, Dunk Island, wildlife.
We spent 5 nights at Taihoa & enjoyed every moment. If you want peace & quiet then this is the place to stay. The accomodation was spotlessly clean & had everything we needed to self cater. The owner is friendly & very helpful. We had a kitchenette & there is a BBQ in the pool area that we even cooked a great lamb roast for tea one evening. We highly recommend visiting & staying at Mission Beach.

Thanks Jo. We are very happy that you enjoyed your time at Taihoa. It is very quiet and relaxing here and you had almost perfect weather. Your roast lamb smelt so good and looked even better. We hope to see you again.

Magic Mission

Pros: Calm and relaxing place to stay. Just a few steps across the road from the sandy beach. Very friendly and helpful host James was great.
Cons: Gum leaves in pool. Unavoidable problem as the shade from the gums trees was much appreciated whilst sitting on the terrace.
Location: Swimming in the clear waters of South Mission Beach. Sunday markets were fun. Drive to Bingal Bay.

Thanks for your review Robin. With Taihoa being Adults Only, it certainly helps to make it a calm and relaxing spot, and with the beach only steps away. Unfortunately the gum tree does drop quite a few leaves and flowers at this time of year (Sept/Oct), but it provides great shade from the midday sun. And it looks great too. We are glad you got to the Rotary Sunday Markets, they have a lot to offer in great shady location on the North Mission Foreshore. We hope you return soon. Remember to ring me for a great locals deal.

lovely quiet units on the beachfront

Pros: Location, amenities, manager
Cons: A full sized fridge would be great
Location: Many walking track, Kennedy walking track just down the road is awesome and you can hire boats or jet skis to visit Dunk island
Beautifully appointed adults only units right on the beachfront of South Mission Beach. we stayed in unit one which was the closest to the pool and beach and had the added bonus of a big corner 2 person bath. It is wonderfully located in a quiet and beautiful part of FNQ, walking tracks, beautiful vistas and wildlife aplenty, we were lucky to see the elusive cassowary and the beautiful Ulysses butterfly. Manager James couldn't have been more helpful and kind, from leaving a bottle of bubbles in the fridge to await our arrival on our wedding anniversary to lending us an esky to take out on trips, providing camping chairs to sit on the beach and providing much local advice. Having stayed in nearby resorts on previous occasions, these units are far more appealing, have more quality, more personable and a lot cheaper. We highly recommend them and will be back for a return visit.

Thanks Lisa and Ron. We are happy you had a great wedding Anniversary. Jen Pfeiffer (Naked Wines) is a good drop. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you again,soon. We only have bar fridges in the units to maximise bench space. We will ensure that an additional fridge is available for guests that require a larger one. Thanks again.

Thanks Arthur. We are happy you enjoyed your stay at Taihoa. We do have a great view of Dunk Island and the Coral Sea from our Units. The beach seems endless (almost is at 12 kms long) and it is a great place to unwind. Being an Adults Only accommodation, the pool area is always quiet. Hope to see you again.
