Sincere thank you to our special guests who have enjoyed Mango Lodge since opening in December 2018.  Here is a snapshot of testimonials received so far…….

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying the night in Mango Lodge, the use of the timber and the extra little touches really made it a lovely place to stay.  Graham mentioned that you asked about the wheelchair access, and honestly I think you have done an AMAZING job on it.   The ramp was a nice easy gradient, and the doorways were all plenty wide enough, even for a power wheelchair.  (with the exception of the door leading out to the bath, but honestly I didn’t think that was a big deal for me).  The bathroom was plenty big enough, even if somebody required assistance there would still be enough room.  It was great to have a choice between the hand-held shower and the big overhead shower too.  Graham and I travel a reasonable amount and have never had electric adjustable beds, so that was also a treat.
From looking at the the photos on the net, I was a bit concerned that my chair may not fit in the gap where the vanity was, but there was plenty of room.   One thing, is that you may want to consider turning the mirror around, as it was too high for a wheelchair user.  I noticed there was another mirror on the dresser in the bedroom, and I tilted that down as far as I could and I was able to sort of see myself in that mirror when trying to do my hair.  The dresser could be moved an inch or two forward to enable a wheelchair user to tilt it further if needed, but ideally the one in the bathroom would be better as there is a power point there for a hairdryer.
Other than that, the cottage is absolutely beautiful, whoever crafted it did an amazing job!
Kind Regards,
Anna & Graham.
Thanks to this valuable feedback, another mirror has been installed in the bathroom.  Check out the wheelchair page here. 17/1/19 – One of the highlights of our honeymoon!

  • Excellent accommodation with some great touches to make our stay extra special!! We would highly recommend a stay at Mango Lodge!! 10 out of 10 – Toby

Place was very charming and neat. We will be back for sure!!   Simon

The Mango Lodge was such a delight to stay in! It was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated – we especially loved the outdoor bath! Suzanne was very helpful upon check-in and offered plenty of local knowledge. We didn’t want to leave!  Caitlyn

Suzanne was a great host for our stay over Xmas – the bon bons were a thoughtful extra touch! The bush trails out the back are great for a quick convenient walk, and if you’re up for more things to do it’s just a ~15 minute drive to Hervey Bay. The cabin was unique, clean and very comfortable – we couldn’t really ask for more. We enjoyed it and decided to extend our stay for an extra night!   Dan

Great place to stay! Only minutes to the river heads boat ramp. The cabin is virtually brand new and very clean! Well thought out, and is completely wheelchair accessible. Ample space around the cabin for your own privacy. Having a fire out the back while soaking in the tub was a treat! Just don’t forget the bug spray!   I Highly recommend this place- was great value for money. Suzanne was so friendly as well! Thanks Sue!  Scott

We were the first guests to stay in this cute timber cabin and loved it very much! The entire place was tastefully decorated and we really enjoyed the outdoor bath with a view to the mango tree! It is also very close to River Heads access point to Fraser Island. Great place for a romantic getaway or a tranquil stay to explore the nature! (:  Mina
