Why SIMON DIBBS chose Fraser Island

This property is the dream that became a reality.

What makes this cottage unique

Mia Mia is situated in the quiet and leafy most established end of the Orchid Beach. The northern end of the township is a more recent development and is comparatively suburban and tends to lack privacy.

This little cottage has been carefully designed and placed in the treetops to take advantage of the ocean breezes and to appreciate the local bird life. It's natural setting and smart stylish decor make it unique at Orchid Beach.

Adventure with comfort and romance

  • 5 of 5

With this being our first time on Fraser Island, half the fun staying at Mia Mia was getting there. The remoteness of Orchid Beach is what attracted us to Mia Mia and when we arrived late Friday afternoon we were not disappointed.

The property was the perfect size for the 2 of us, it was open plan, extremely comfortable and clean. It was such a luxury to have a full kitchen, fridge/freezer and I cannot express how wonderful it is to have a toilet and beautiful shower at your finger tips which makes it easy to keep sand out of your bed which is near impossible when your camping.

Simon was the most hospitable host and provided us with some destinations to visit that only some locals know about, we both had the time of our life and are going to make a stay at Mia Mia a regular destination and have already started planing our next trip.

Perfect location, amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location at Orchid Beach on Fraser Island. Stayed in Mia Mia for 3 nights and felt like we were in the treetops in the middle of nowhere. Four walls of huge windows with just the breeze and trees such a beautiful setting. Balcony/Decking was the perfect spot for wine and cheese and total relaxation. Didn't want for anything, great facilities. Will definitely recommend to family and friends. Thanks

Beautiful location, nearly feels like a treehouse

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the decor and location of MiaMia. Very complete kitchen, nothing to wish for. All features work flawlessly. Simon super-friendly with lots of advice, free kitchen towel as gift. We loved our stay and can only recommend this to other travellers. Away from the "beach highway", a little haven of luxury and sophistication, where you can enjoy the bird's view and chirping in the morning. Gorgeous terrace with beautiful view.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mia Mia last week. The cottage is perfectly positioned up in the trees - you can see all the way out to the ocean. We woke each morning to the sunrise & drifted off to sleep each night listening to the surf. It was beautiful! Mia Mia had everything & more that we needed for our stay. We were really surprised the kitchen was so well equipped & the bathroom is practically brand new! We have never slept in a more comfortable bed - it was so luxurious!

Mia Mia is the perfect place to come home to after an action packed day exploring Fraser Island. It is also a beautiful place to spend a quiet day just relaxing & taking in the peaceful surroundings. If you're looking to 'get away from it all' Mia Mia is the perfect place to go!
