Meet Jaimie and Lisa Kerr…and Tabbe (their best friend) who now manage the Rainbow Getaway Holiday Apartments in Rainbow Beach.

The friendly trio have a great fondness for this lovely town and the coast, so they’ve jumped at the chance to take on the role.

The Kerrs have been on a working adventure for the past five years, setting off from the Sunshine Coast to experience the Queensland outback. “I’d been a slave to my last job,” said Jaimie, “so changes needed to be made”.

Just a few of the regions they visited on their journey were Emerald – where Jaimie drove a tour coach, Quilpie and the Gulf (excellent Barra fishing). Lisa kept herself busy as a barista by making terrific coffee for the locals and tourists, also by calling on her background as an Aged Care professional.

“There’s so much to see and do out there,” Lisa shared. “We’d go to camping and 4WD shows and buy everything! There was such a sense of freedom, we just followed our noses.”

However, what they do best together is property management, and the Burketown Caravan Park benefitted from the couple’s skills and warm outgoing personalities. The last stop was Toogoolawa before taking up the post here in Rainbow Beach recently.

Jaimie’s skills in horticultural landscape construction have already been put to work upgrading the Getaway Apartments, the locals have noticed! The gardens are undergoing beautification and redesign, plus a fresh new paint job and modernisation of the exterior is underway.

The Kerrs enjoy the diversity of this part of the world with the beach, surf fishing and lifestyle and had previously purchased property at Cooloola Cove.

“We plan to retire here one day, but for now it’s business, onwards and upwards at the Getaway”. We welcome our new locals.

If you or your friends and family would like to stop for a weekend or short break, there are excellent specials outside of school holidays – call Lisa on 07 5486 3500 to book, or drop into 4 Double Island Drive.
