Accommodation ~ ~ rest!

 

 

 

Yamacutta Lodge is unique . Modelled on the traditional timber "Pole Home", constructed using local and imported hardwoods like spotted Gum, Australian red Cedar and Tasmanian Oak, it incorporates modern elements too.


High ceilings and full height sliding glass doors to all rooms maximise the light and sense of space. Lots of large glassless timber louvres to the side and rear elevations give you the sense that you are really part of the Rainforest and maintain a through breeze.

Being arrow-shaped with an angled front elevation, rooms have greater privacy and it makes for interesting shapes. The internal scheme and furnishings echo the natural colours and textures of the rainforest with rich browns and subtle greys and greens. En-suite wetrooms have pebble floors and overhead "sunburst " showers ~ a reminder that the coast and reef are not far away. This is not pretentious ~ it simply makes for a calming atmosphere!..

"Yamacutta" means "beautiful reef - haven of peace".........this is what we have tried to create. Yamacutta is also the name of a nearby beautiful reef which happens to be in direct line with South Mission Beach and the property.
