Guest and Media Reviews

Sejala very much appreciates the wonderful support of our past guests and thanks everyone for their lovely comments, letters and helpful observations!  We have had an adventurous few years with the eye of two of the biggest category 5 cyclones recorded crossing the coastline at Sejala – amazingly the huts and house escaped with minor damage and the garden and foreshore is again as beautiful and luxuriant as ever.   We hope the real experiences of our guests expressed below will entice new visitors to Sejala and perhaps remind our past guests to stay with us again.

We would love to welcome you to Sejala very soon.

“A beautiful cottage in a perfect location.”

Amazing location, just metres from Mission Beach and a short stroll into the village to restaurants and cafes. Loved the fruit bowl and fridge supplies and the beautifully styled cottage. Right on Ulysses Link trail, but tucked behind a rainforest screen. Just beautiful!

“We had a wonderful stay at Sejala!”

The place is gorgeous, and really relaxing. We had absolutely everything we needed, and all inclusions were very high quality. Loved being able to stroll on the beach and promenade track so easily, and the sound of the lapping waves from the cottage. Close enough to walk everywhere and plenty of choices for coffee and food etc.

“So beautiful, so much fun. Felt like our own little paradise. We will be back!”

Pool area was an extra bonus, water stays cool under the shade of trees. Private and secluded feel, yet so easily accessible to everything.
There was nothing not to like!!!

“If you are looking for your own little private slice of paradise then look no further than these beautiful huts!”

“many luxurious and thoughtful touches”

This is a beautiful place to stay for a quiet relaxing holiday a few steps away from an idyllic beach. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and the many luxurious and thoughtful touches make Sejala a perfect hideaway location.

“exceeded expectations!!!”

The Ideal Beach Hideaway That perfect balance of restful coziness, comfort, convenience, laid back Aussie hospitality and a palm-fringed soft-sand picture-postcard beach almost at your doorstep. Amenities that kept surprising, from the local breakfast fruits, abundant coffee pods to enjoy, beach chairs, easy-to-use BBQ,a wonderfully warm pool, ample beach/bath towels and a surprising bottle of bubbly to enjoy … can’t wait to return to ”Beaches”.

October 2019


A totally delightful property. The personal touches were just as one would enjoy at home. This was our second stay and hope to return next year.

October 2019

“the pool was warm and shady”

Absolutely beautiful beach hut with everything we could ask for. Beyond relaxing. The pool was warm and shady with stunning tree beside. Very private. Sounds of the ocean 🙂

September 2019

“perfectly clean”

The room was perfectly clean, very nicely decorated and comfortable. We loved the patio and being able to sit and have breakfast outside. Thank you for the different foods provided for breakfast by the way! The bathroom was big, with everything needed, lots of towels (including beach towels).

August 2019

“incredibly thoughtful, beautiful and practical finishing touches”

This place is exquisite! The location, the accommodation, the incredibly thoughtful, beautiful and practical finishing touches. What an amazing stay, so easy and relaxing. Thank you; it takes work and a great deal of thought and work to make a place look and feel so relaxed, yet elegant.

“it was lovely lying in bed listening to the ocean”

Our bungalow was just perfect. It had everything we could have wished for and more. Thank you for the bubbles and fruit it was a lovely touch. It was lovely lying in bed listening to the ocean. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day honeymoon in Mission Beach and will hopefully come back soon.

October 2018

“beautifully appointed, bright, comfortable and private”

These are very special little huts, there is nothing not to like about them. The proximity to the beach means you can wander there in no time, or you can hang out in the hut all day if you wish. Beautifully appointed, bright, comfortable and private. You won’t be disappointed staying here!

July 2018

“our third stay”

Our third stay in this lovely beachside villa that is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully put together with lots of nice touches and extra amenities that give it a boutique feel (it reminds us of those lovely villas you get in Asia). There’s a tropical garden, pool, good kitchen amenities, deck with outdoor seating and bbq, and comfortable inside spaces. Spotlessly clean. Good wifi. Excellent communication with host. Perfect location right opposite the beach and a very calm, peaceful setting. You will love it and leave feeling very zen! We will definitely be back.

“it was like being on our own private tropical island”

I loved everything about Sejala Beach Huts. The Hut is very private. It was the perfect quiet get away. Just what we wanted. I particularly loved the Hammock and the outdoor shower. Everything was just perfect.

November 2017

“very comfy bed”

Best location imaginable with the beach virtually on your doorstep and an easy walk into town. Gorgeous cottage with lots of lovely touches and a very comfy bed.

November 2017

“exquisite beach bungalows, private but close to the cafes and walks.”

In over one hundred reviews I’ve never scored a property as 10. Sejala is exquisite. Location, decor, size (ie just 3 bungalows), cooking facilities, bed, bathroom, tropical vegetation, DVD collection all faultless. Management helpful and discrete.

October 2017

“perfect position”

The beach huts were in a perfect position on the beach.

September 2017

Gorgeous location right on the beach. The huts are beautifully laid out with all the special touches. Can’t wait to return!

September 2017

A wonderful destination for a restful holiday. Beautiful accommodation in an excellent location.

July 2017 

Had a lovely, quiet week. Beautiful place to stay. Highly recommend.

July 2017

Absolute serenity. We were in need of peace and quiet and Janet’s beautiful little cabin delivered. All expectations met.

May 2017

“Wir durften eine wundervolle Nacht in der gemütlichen Hütte direkt am Strand verbringen. So nah am Strand haben wir noch nie übernachtet, man konnte das Wasser von der Veranda sehen. Janet hatte alles bereit gelegt, was man sich für einen relaxten Aufenthalt wünschen kann. Sogar eine spätere Abreise, damit wir die Ruhe-Oase länger genießen können, war kein Problem. Vielen Dank für Entspannung pur.”

September 2015

“Sejala exceeded our expectations – a tranquil private oasis with exquisite appointments and immaculate expansive gardens and friendly helpful hosts. Despite all the attractions of Mission Beach we were happiest kicking back in our villa and making the most of our beautiful surrounds. Will definitely be back and would recommend to anyone seeking a uniquely private and beautiful oasis in a very special part of the world. 10 out of 10!”

September 2015

“The Sejala huts were simply, elegantly and perfectly fitted out. The attention to the small details made our stay particularly pleasant – quality sheets, beach towels and chairs, coffee maker, mosquito coils, candle lantern, toiletries, hammock and so on. Whilst the huts overlook the beach and beachside walking track, they still feel very private. The fact that we could spend most of the day at our hut and still feel on holiday and not feel cooped up (not otherwise possible at any resort) made it well worth the price.”

September 2015

“Sejala huts are ALL that Janet has described and so much more! My partner was unable to attend at the last minute, so a dear friend joined me instead. Janet organised a day bed to be arranged for her, which was ever so kind and thoughtful. Janet has put so much consideration into the decor, set-up and amenities of these huts and it shows from the moment you arrive. We stayed in ‘Waves’ and needed for nothing. The location was divine and it was safe, secure and serene. In Janet’s absence, David and Maureen look after the property and were just lovely. We stayed for 5 nights/6 days and it was bliss. An easy 5-10min walk along the path to town and only a minute to the beach from our hut’s deck. Sejala exceeded all of our expectations. The hut was a peaceful sanctuary that is suitable for anyone; whether travelling solo, with friends or with a partner. The photos don’t do it justice. Thank you Janet, I can’t wait to return”

“We had the most beautiful stay in Mission Beach. The hut was so cosy and well organized. The location was seconds away from the beach. It was super clean with lots of towels and beautiful l’Occitane products. We stayed in the Coral hut which was facing a little courtyard with beautiful vegetation around and adjacent to the swimming pool. All and all a very pleasant experience. We would love to come back.”

“Damn near perfect!”

Just coming to the end of our third annual holiday in Mission Beach staying at Sejala Beach Huts right on the beach front. This place is amazing, secluded, private and only a short walk down the beach for restaurants …

“What can I say but Paradise”

My wife fell in love with the place as soon as we arrived … it was exactly what we were looking for – a secluded paradise.  We stayed in Waves Hut and the accommodation was superb.

The pristine beach is literally about 10 yards away down a path through a coconut grove. We arrived there at about 2pm and there was hardly a footprint in the sand.

“Sejala Beach Huts”

… simple, breezy and perfectly positioned …  Simplicity is the key.  The surroundings are straight from paradise … coconut palms and lush tropical vegetation which almost hides the plunge pool.

“Soothing, secluded, and stunning”

I went here with the love of my life for a week and we had the most fantastic time. ….  Sejala was the PERFECT hideaway.

It felt like time had stopped for us in such a calm, stunning locale.  My boyfriend proposed here and we would love to go back someday.

“Gorgeous private beach hut”

Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very well equipped beach-hut.  The Mission Beach area was quieter than anticipated but this hut was without doubt one of the most lovely places that I have ever stayed.

“There’s a zen-like ambience to the town”
… throw open the doors to a sea breeze at Sejala Beach Huts.

“A dream come true – you can’t get more romantic than this!”

Staying at Sejala is having a dream come true. Your own hut on the beach and in the forest, a hammock on the veranda, an outdoor bathroom and all the luxury you can imagine. It is impossible to put the magic of this place into words – you simply cannot get more romantic than this. The price comes at a premium, but it is worth every penny – you’ll dream of this place for years to come. Stay here and slip out early to watch the sunrise over Mission Beach – you’ll tell your grandchildren of this in years to come. Definitely recommended!

“Truly a little piece of Paradise”

We stayed for 10 nights at Sejala in September, and it was a wonderful relaxing holiday.


…  the sound of the rainforest behind you can throw a towny a bit, we found a tree frog in our sink on the first night! 

However once you get used to the surroundings it is absolute bliss, I cried when we left, you really get the feel of what it would be like to be a beach bum for a while!

“Romance is still available!”

The Sejala “Waves” cabin was so beautiful and just broadcast ‘Romance’! – a special place to honeymoon. People spend thousands of dollars a night to experience an environment like this … the Sejala Beach Units were a wonderful start to a lifetime together.

“Peaceful and quiet location, boutique styling”

We had two nights at Sejala and found the Waves beach hut to be excellent, with interior styling that was beautiful, and very comfortable for a couple.


… the morning brought the true beauty out when we awoke early to a glorious sun rise over the beach. The last day here my boyfriend proposed and the setting could not have been more perfect.

“Mission Beach is a good spot to check into and chill out for a few days.”

The beach itself is lovely and long.   Sejala beach huts, near the village centre  …. within metres of the beach.

– Warm Welcome; Jim Mathews: The Road Ahead, January 2007

“Brilliant accommodation”

These beach huts are amazing. All are detached, beautifully built huts, with adjoining bathrooms.

“The essence of a quiet beachfront stay”

The Sejala Beach Huts on Mission Beach are lovely and very well situated.  ……separated from the beach proper by about twenty metres of low density rainforest foliage, allowing a sweet view of the beach and the Coral Sea from the hut’s deck: most tranqulizing. The location is very quiet and as non-commercialized as can be.

“Casual, Cool and Comfy”

Mission Beach is beautiful, mellow, cool and really laid back. I definitely would have to say the same for the Sejala Beach Huts.

“Laid back style at Sejala Beach House”

Enjoying an absolute beachfront setting under the coconut trees, the Sejala Beach House is a hidden gem in Mission Beach, two hours south of Cairns.   The beautiful old timber house captures the elegance and understated luxury of the tropics with breezy light filled rooms, shuttered doors and windows, lazy overhead fans, courtyards, ponds, beach chairs and hammocks.  Set a few metres from the main beach, Sejala is also only a four minute walk to the township of Mission Beach where you still find that old far north Queensland tropical charm and ambience.  The pavilion style sitting room opens onto either a terrace overlooking the Coral sea and the islands, or a private glass-tiled terrace pool and sunbathing area.
