We had a lovely stay at holloways beach. Its a beautiful house with a great outdoor area and a really lovely dog.
Thank you so much :)
Great location, near beach and 10 mins to airport. Main attractions quite close e.g. 1 hr drive to Port Douglas, 1.5 hrs drive to Daintree rainforest and 20 mins to Cairns City. Good Aircon and large outside sitting/eating area with pool. Good laundry facilities. Very friendly dogs, nice hosts, in a safe quiet residential area and good value for money.
We found This home stay to very relaxing and PEACEFULL. Many Thanks to Simone and Kraig.
We had a lovely stay with Simone and Kraig, we felt at home. Beautiful house and swimming pool, lovely outdoor lounge/dining area. Thank you for making our first 2 weeks in Australia enjoyable!
My Homestay with Kraig and Simone went far beyond my expectations. The welcome was warm and their kindness was extended throughout my stay. The accommodation was beautifully prepared, the fridge provided an unexpected breakfast each day, the setting and ambiance was everything I wanted to unwind and chill out before setting out to explore the Cairns and tropical North Queensland area. I would not hesitate to recommend this property except that it might already be booked up when I want to return!!!
2 great weeks with Kraig & Simone!! : Fantastics hosts. We recommend unhesitatingly going to ask you some time at home, cool off in the pool and taste the pleasure of BBQ. Both are adorable and their 2 dogs PawPaw and Roxy very endearing. The area is quiet a few steps from the beach. We will return there again with pleasure. Thank you for everything
I can recommend this homestay. Simone and Kraig were very friendly and helpful.
The accommodation with swimming pool and barbecue area is very comfortable and clean. You will love it. Near the house is a beautiful natural beach. The bus Stop is not far away. Every hour you can take a bus to Cairns.
Kraig & Simone were very hospitable and the room provided everything one could need.
A few minutes walk to a beautiful stretch of beach. I enjoyed my stay and know others will too.
