About the property

Between the Rainforest and a Lily Lagoon

Take time out to recharge in one of LillypadsÂ’ two exclusive rainforest cottages, exquisitely located between lush, tree-clad hills, an exotic lily lagoon and your own private rainforest (yes you can even enjoy a private spa in the thick of it).

Lillypads offers uncommon luxury – a self-styled fantasy retreat where you can conjure up gourmet feasts simply by taking a stroll round the gardens to pick your own succulent fruits like the rare tree strawberry, papaya and jackfruit to enjoy on your own tropical deck. Alternatively, you may wish to harvest kafir limes for evening cocktails and laze away at the property’s deep saltwater pool, set in the lily lagoon and fringed with banana palms and pandanas.

Forget the stress

In keeping with the theme of retreat and indulgence, the Lillypads Body Temple has been created to take your experience of rest to another level.

Set on a small, enchanted island in the rainforest, the Body TempleÂ’s natural music is the sound of the propertyÂ’s creek as it gently falls over the rocks to ensure your experience of deep peace. Here you can lie in a hammock in your own private garden of Eden. Total bliss.

A visit youÂ’ll remember for a lifetime

In the verdant, fabled paradise of Tropical North Queensland there are few opportunities such as this to live in heavenly comfort, yet still be so closely attuned to the natural beauty of the renowned wet tropics.

Not more than five minutes away youÂ’ll find the character-filled village of Mission Beach and some of AustraliaÂ’s most famous beaches where you can stroll under coconut palms or take trips out to the glorious islands of Dunk, Bedarra or Hinchinbrook, or indeed to the breathtaking Great Barrier Reef. And if you donÂ’t see the legendary flightless cassowary in one of the national parks nearby, you may well see one at Lillypads from your deck.

Millions will come every year to enjoy the abundant natural beauty of Tropical North Queensland. Few will go away with the memories of this magical world within a world. A truly rare pocket of luxury in one of AustraliaÂ’s best-loved destinations and a rare treat for couples, families and honeymooners alike.

These 2 bedroom - 2 bathroom luxury rainforest Cottages offer open plan living - kitchen area opening onto screened indoor - outdoor verandas. You can sit and gaze over the lily lagoon from the front verandah or you can relax in your spa tub on the back verandah and gaze in to the rainforest. Bliss.......

The kitchen has it all for the Home Chef including fresh herbs, farm fresh eggs and tropical seasonal fruits - cooking will be a pleasure not a chore.

For the occasional days or nights when the cool breezes from the rainforest are not gently wafting through the chalet there is the option of air-conditioning.

For those who like to lay beside the pool Lillypad's pool area is ideal. There are semi-shaded decks for each chalet adjoining a cool deep 11 meter saltwater pool set into the lagoon.

Lillypads is pure indulgence for couples, families or the perfect tropical honeymoon.

Sunshine or rain Lillypads will release your stress.

Property set in easily accessible, yet secluded setting. All kitchen equipment required for a self catered stay available. Large front enclosed porch provides a lovely setting for breakfasts and dinners, complete with frog-song. Swimming pool very welcome on hot days.

Absolutely loved this place, very private cottages with the rain forest right next to us, we even saw a cassowary wander past every morning! The interior of the cottage was really stylish and practical with everything you could possibly need being there. It was also very romantic with the spa bath. We loved Lilypads! in one word "Perfect"!

From the initial phone call I knew this place would be special. Between Vicky and Nancy the description was perfect. Upon arrival at the red chalet we found everything and more required. Far better stocked than my home cupboards! Relaxing with a massage or spa, lying by the pool or strolling the gardens in search of herbs, fruit or Cassowaries. Three nights was not enough, I can't wait to return. Thanks ladies.
