We stayed for three nights in December 2006 as part of our honeymoon, and were delighted with the fantastic location and hospitality of this bed and breakfast. The property is located in the quiet suburb of Holloways Beach and is approximately 10 minutes drive from Cairns and the airport. It is close to a number of tourist attractions such as...

The reason I stayed at this B&B is because of the great reviews I had read on this forum. I agree with all of the reviews on Billabong. It is the best place that we have stayed in & we could not fault anything. Everything was 1st class, it is really worth staying here, you would not be diappointed.

This lovely little B&B was a highlight of our trip to Australia. The room was very comfortable and had everything that you would need, but it was the views from our veranda that made it really special. It is set in the most amazing grounds with their very own lake housing ducks and fish. It is well located, only 10...

After three weeks in Australia we knew we had found the most lovely, unique spot, the most genuinely friendly & helpful hosts in Ted and Vicky (you'd think we were the first people they'd helped). The most stylish and attractive rooms, not to mention the healthiest luxury breakfast. We wish we had found this place sooner.

“Ask for a room on the far side of the house or in the private guest house. The room right off the patio gets a bit of noise from other guests if they get up early for breakfast.”
