Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing The only thing modern is the licence the owners have taken to discribe this place. It is totally in accurate from the door with the broken fly screen which let in cockroache, to the dishwasher that does not work despite several calls for it to be fixed. The dishes were not cleaned (presumably left by the previous visitors due to the broken dishwasher but obviously not checked by the owners). The washing machine did not work properly, you can not access the carport due to the items stored there (an old pram & other items that look like they have not been touched in years). We stayed a week & in that time the bins were not put out for collection hence the overflowing rubbish. We did not use the BBQ as one look of the grime & grease on the cover was enough! Holloways Beach is a lovely sleepy village close to Cairns & tropical north Qld, the local cafe is a must especially for breakfast, a great place to stay for a bit of quiet R & R just don't stay at Cairns Bed n Bath, you will be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Paul and Charlie were great hosts picking us up and dropping us off at the airport. Holloways Beach is the perfect place to stay to discover the Cairns area. Close to Cairns and yet far enough away to see the amazing star lit sky as you walk along the beach. Our family of four had an amazing five days here and we would defintely return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cairns BednBoat was the perfect place to stay for our Cairns holiday. The unit was clean and spacious. It had a well equipt kitchen and comfy beds.It was a great location on it's own with a great cafe/bistro around the corner and a really good pizza place just down the road.Hosts Paul and Charlie were very easy to communicate with over the booking, and we found Paul waiting for us on our arrival at 11.30pm! I would recommend their accomodation. Great value for money. Thanks Paul & Charlie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a great stroke of luck that our random search of lodging for the Cairns area led us to CarinsBednBoat. Of all the places that our family of 5 adults stayed on this holiday, this establishment was far and away our favorite. The airport pickup started our visit with a real sense of welcome. Paula and Charlie did everything they could to make us feel at home while giving us total freedom to enjoy their lovely accommodations. The apartment was attractive, spacious, clean, comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed. We really did feel like we were at home. The additional option of having a car for hire in the same rental package made our stay so much easier and quite affordable. I loved the location too. We were near to everything we needed but tucked away in Holloways Beach we were removed from the hustle and bustle of Cairns proper. And to top things off, Paul is an engaging story teller and can give you great tips on how to best explore this beautiful part of Australia. If I ever have the opportunity to return to Carins, I will be certain to check for availability with CarinsBednBoat first.
