Meringa at Mission is a place of total relaxation and comfort - a home away from home.

Located in a quiet cul-de-sac only one street back from the golden sands of Mission Beach, Meringa is also just a few minutes walk from Mission Beach village shops, restaurants, Castaways Resort and the popular Mission Beach markets. Lush rainforest, from which the occasional cassowary may wander, is across the road.
The house has a wonderful tropical feel about it with an open living area full of light comprising a large indoor deck with bi-fold doors opening onto a pool and an adjoining louvered living area which opens onto a second large deck with gas barbecue over looking the rear gardens.
Meringa has a spacious kitchen with all mod cons, lounge/dining area with entertainment unit, three air-conditioned bedrooms sleeping six (2 queen beds, 2 singles), two modern bathrooms, a well-equipped laundry with washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board and a clothesline out the back door.
Enjoy a sun-downer with friends on the back deck overlooking the landscaped garden or watch the children play in the pool as you enjoy a drink and nibbles on the indoor deck under subdued lighting or by candlelight, perhaps followed by a barbecue or a stroll to the village for dinner.
Families and couples will love Meringa for its relaxed feel, its quiet location, its comforts and conveniences and its proximity to all the draw-card attractions of Mission Beach.
The choices abound - Tandem Sky Dive onto Mission Beach, White Water Raft down the Tully River, Snorkel or Dive the Great Barrier Reef, Fish on the Great Barrier Reef, Kayak over to Dunk Island, enjoy an Island Cruise, End the Day doing a Sunset Sail, take a Walk on one of the many Rainforest Walking Tracks and spot a Cassowary, Play a Round of Golf.
Take a drive to one of the many waterfalls or enjoy a day discovering The Atherton Tablelands.
If relaxation is more your style what could be better than lazing on the internal pool deck at Meringa, followed by a BBQ at the beach then continue your Meringa experience in your own private swimming pool, or sample the tasty menus at one of our great restaurants.
Adventure or is up to you!
