Enjoyed a wonderful four nights at Castaway Cove Resort. The villa had absolutely everything we needed to ensue a comfortable stay. We did not have a car so used the public bus service which was convenient. The bus stops are pretty close to the resort and some of the bus drivers went the extra mile and dropped us right there....

Castaway Cove Resort is easy to access by car. THey have parking for all room/units. The studios are ok but they do noe have cooking opportunities, only microwave. Visitors can cook on the shared BBQ in the pool area and the managers are happy to receive payment for upgrades. The facilities were perfectly ok but even though the place was... More

Thanks Eva for your comments. I would just point out, for the benefit of future guests who may not realize, that we are not a hotel, but are a self-catering apartment complex, which basically means that we supply the room, and guests look after themselves. There is no daily service provision like there is with a hotel or motel. Whilst... More

Stayed here for our wedding/honeymoon in a pent house apartment. Location is fantastic if you want to be away from the hassell of noosa.. Owners recommended a car which came in very handy. The roof top spa was fantastic with a BBQ area also.. Great for relaxing at night as we had our 15mth old with us. We were greeted... More

This guest signed our standard registration form upon check-in where she authorized her credit card to be charged for any missing items or damage caused to the unit. She was a very large lady and somehow managed to knock over a standing lamp behind the lounge and broke the glass lamp shade. She refused to pay for the damage. The... More

The owner-managers of this place should not be involved in tourism or customer service. They clearly are enjoying their lifestyle and do not want the interruption of guests. Arriving after a long drive, the check-in process was gruelling while I had to listen to them barking various orders at me such as "take out your own garbage!" and "if you... More

It was obvious to me as soon as MysteryTraveller_12 checked in that she was having a bad day. I went through our normal check-in procedure with her just like with every other guest that my wife and I have done over the last 9 years. Her claim that I barked orders at her is completely false and malicious. I provided... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you stay at this absolute beachfront resort (no road to cross), you feel like you’re miles from anywhere. On your doorstep is 15km of ocean beach, yet you are only a 5 minute drive from all the restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Noosa.Located only minutes south of Noosa on a beautiful, unspoilt stretch of ocean beach, Castaway Cove offers a unique getaway in luxury 1 to 4 bedroom self-contained Beach Houses, Villas, Penthouses and Apartments - most with spas, private bbqs and spectacular ocean views.Enjoy an early morning walk on the beach, have a late breakfast on your private balcony, sip champagne in your spa watching the waves roll in, have a private picnic for two on the secluded beach, enjoy a BBQ on your deck, eat out at one of Noosa’s many famous restaurants, arrange to have an in-house massage or just sit and relax in the comfort of your tastefully appointed accommodation.For the more energetic, there are walks (or runs!) along the beach, a heated pool, full-sized tennis court, or hire a bike and go for a ride on the bike track. There are many golf courses in the immediate area, as well great tourist attractions such as Australia Zoo, Fraser Island, Underwater World or boat trips on the Noosa River and Everglades.Castaway Cove is AAA rated 4.5 star accommodation, so you certainly won’t be doing it tough like Robinson Crusoe! All units are fully self-contained, well-appointed and have free satellite TV, VCR/DVD/CD players, high speed in-room wireless broadband - most are air conditioned.
