About Carmen Raynor
My husband and I moved to Cairns from Sydney at the beginning of 2018. We bought our house at Holloways Beach when we moved here, and lived in it while we built a house nearby. We have now set it up as a beautiful holiday house and we are enjoying hosting guests from all around the world.
Carmen Raynor purchased this House in 2018
Why Carmen Raynor chose Holloways Beach
We chose to buy this house to live in while we built because we knew it would be the perfect holiday home. It is only 12 years old, a few minutes walk from the beach, close to the centre of a charming beach community and still close to the city. It's a 20 minute drive to Palm Cove, 45 minutes to Port Douglas and 8 minutes to the Skyrail. Our guests love how convenient it is to all the tourist attractions, without being in the middle of the city or the crowds of Palm Cove.
What makes this House unique
This house was designed with tropical living in mind. It has a wonderful tropical alfresco area with a bubbling water feature, and private resort style pool surrounded by tropical gardens and a gourmet kitchen. The bedrooms all have air conditiong and fans, as does the living area . The house is only 400m from the beach and local restaurants and beach side bar.

We had an amazing time in the beautiful home! Can highly recommend this property
Brilliant place with a great host
Clean property and ideally positioned near beach, hosts very accommodating, overall excellent - highly recommended
Thanks so much Brett, hope to see you back again one day!
Our 7 person group spent 6 nights at this property over Christmas. There was ample room for all of us to have space to ourselves as there is lots of places to relax inside & outside.
During the lead up to the trip Carmen & Barry went above & beyond researching activities, looking up restaurants that would be open on Christmas Eve & Day, leaving a little Christmas tree for us, recommending places to pre order groceries and more. The exemplary service continued once we arrived, they were friendly and outgoing without being overwhelming.
The pool was wonderful and the beach is a few blocks away. There are a few shops and restaurants within easy walking distance too.
The pictures are as they appear on the listing, the house is gorgeous. I have stayed in VRBO’s in several countries and this was be of the best equipped, it felt like a home.
If I have to good fortune to be in the Cairns area again, I would definitely stay here, and recommend it to anyone looking for an amazing house with wonderful hosts.
Thanks Alex, - glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Wonderful place, wonderful hosts
Booked for 5 nights at Holloways Beach house and right from the start hosts Carmen and Barry were a joy to speak to. Replied to every inquire promptly,
In a world of automation, self check in etc, as a traveler you wonder if the person on the other end is real. Carmen and Barry will meet you on arrival and greet you as a long lost friend. They will take you through the house, showing you all the idiosyncrasies of the house to make your stay that much more comfortable. The house it self is spacious and very clean, with the photos on the site a true indication. There are all the modern aspects a house you come to expect, great functional kitchen, smart tv etc, but there's also an old fashion sense as well, big comfy couches, quality beds with nice linen. There are lots of board games on hand for those wanting to reconnect. It's a 10 out of 10 from me.
Thank you so much Brian, you are welcome back anytime. It was a pleasure to host you.
