The Billabong is a lovely small B&B with only two rooms, each overlooking the Billabong, a small lake. It is lovely and peaceful, with many kinds of birds to watch and listen to. The rooms are comfortable and thoughtfully furnished with small patios overlooking with tables, chairs and candles. You can walk to the small town of Hollaways Beach where... More

First rate B&B complemented by professional, informative & friendly owners. Supurb location and beautiful landscaping. Both rooms face the lake and it is a peaceful, relaxing oasis. Central to all of the sights around Cairns and a couple of great restaurants nearby. The beach is lovely too which you can walk to.

Spent 4 nights at this lovely B&B in December 06. Vicky & Ted were so friendly and helpful in every possible way. The local knowledge and insight into the area was great. Holloways Beach is central to all areas of interest & has a lovely beach. It has 2 great restaurants, one right on the beach with great food and... More

Stayed here in September 06 for four nights as the first stop on a mini tour of Australia. What a place to start! It is located a twenty minute or so bus ride from Cairns, in a lovely spot called Holloway beach. It is not a big suburb, but there is one excellent restaurant (Coolums), an idyllic beach bar next...

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... More

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.

We had a wonderful time during a two-day stay at the Billabong B&B. Vicky was a great host: briefed us on all the tour options and places we could go on our own. Very knowledgeable about the reef (she and her husband formerly operated a dive service). We awoke to a bird concert both mornings before our excellent breakfast prepared... More

We had the pleasure of spending a few days with Vicky and Ted in May, 2006. Billabong is a wonderful B and B. We like to stay at B and B's when we travel and this is one of the best. The setting is peaceful, romantic and tropical. Nice touches like fresh cut flowers in the room greet you. Rooms... More

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... More

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.
