We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lillypads. We enjoyed the grounds and the wildlife that came with it. The cottage was a good size for our family, and had all the amenities we needed. We definitely consider staying again in the future.

Lillypads Red Cottage was an amazingly beautiful and tranquil space to stay. The Spa looking out into the rainforest was an absolute highlight for our family. The cottage is beautifully appointed, the local Cassowary visit was amazing, our son was very impressed! We can’t say enough about how much we loved this place, we will definitely be visiting again. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Lillypads Red cottage is an amazingly beautiful and tranquil space, the spa overlooking the rainforest was a major highlight for us. The cottage is beautifully appointed and we would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful stay in the rainforest near beautiful Mission Beach. Our 5yr old enjoyed exploring the property and a visit from the Cassowary was highly appreciated. Thanks for your hospitality.

Lillypads is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. The spa looking out to the rainforest and deck on the lagoon were highlights. We were lucky enough to see a cassowary walking through the property.

Rike Clemens

It’s been a wonderful stay in a beautiful setting with all amenities you want catering for all ages of our family. It is so close to everything, from beaches, shops, rainforest walks and if you just want to hang out and watch the wild life the pool was perfect for the children. Thank you for a wonderful break.

Superb in every detail. Attention to every possible guest need is exceptional. Like having your own private luxury cottage in a botanical garden. And the location is unbeatable. Stay in quiet rainforest seclusion and venture out to world class beaches and excellent dining options within minutes. And we were visited by a cassowary every day. 100% best holiday accommodation. (And we produced a full xmas feast in that amazing kitchen). THANKYOU.

Joanna Filmer

A wonderful place. Quiet and spotlessly clean. Everything you need in the kitchen, comfortable sofa and beds. Good location for exploring too. We thoroughly enjoyed this little cottage especially the hot tub with shower looking into the trees. Highly recommend.

Mike Berry-Porter

The cottage was the perfect location for my family and I to base ourselves and explore Mission Beach and the surrounds. The cottage backs onto rainforest and a small creek, with big beautiful bamboo towering over the place. A quick 3 minute drive to the beach and main strip. I highly recommend.

Alicia Khan

Lillypads Red Cottage was an amazing stay. The place was immaculate and it was so quiet while being a quick drive to beach and restaurants at Mission Beach. Absolutely baby and toddler friendly as the cottage is completely lockable to protect from pond, pool and outdoor wildlife…while not impacting on the feeling of being in nature. The bamboo forest right at the doorstep made a beautiful serene noise in the wind that was a delightful surprise. Thanks for a memorable stay!

In amongst the rainforest but only minutes to the beach. If you want relaxing and the feeling of being away from hustle and bustle, this is the place. Spotted a couple of cassowaries. Wish we didn't have to leave

Lovely place - very private - lovely rainforest views, nice pool and various places to sit and enjoy. Lovely to have spa with full views in complete privacy.

We spent a week in this beautiful piece of heaven. The hosts are amazing and the place is unbelievable. It is the perfect combination between the rain forest and the beach. On arrival we found fresh fruits and eggs on the table and a cupboard full with everything you need to cook a delicious meal. Will definitely come back and recommend the property to our friends.

This is probably the only place in the world where you can see a cassowary at the lawn in front of the cottage! The cottage is also very beautiful, and jacuzzi is a lovely touch.

Beautiful setting and close to everything Mission Beach has to offer. The cottage was lovely and had the special touches that make a holiday memorable. Tammy and Vicki were great hosts. We have already recommended Lillypads Cottages to our friends.

Fabulous ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Such a well equipped peaceful and private cottage, perfect for a romantic couples getaway from it all.The cottage has all you need for a short or long stay, covered and screened veranda the place to be to listen to and view all the Rainforest has to offer. Minutes from Mission Beach and the ocean, so much to see and do right on your doorstep on The Cassowary Coast, truly a little piece of paradise.

Our stay with Lillypad Cottages was like being in heaven..simply amazing, and we were lucky enough to get a visit from the cassowary. We will defiantly be back.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay. The baby Cassowary is growing quickly. Not sure if you got to see him as well.
