The title says it all, nothing wrong with this place all all. My wife and I stayed here a few days ago... The only issue a person may have is that it's in Skenes Creek, not Apollo Bay town itself, I consider this a positive, much more peaceful, and great view of nature. Apollo Bay town is quite loud when... More

Myself and my wife stayed here in December for 2 nights. The location is great looking over the ocean but a little remote from Apollo Bay (about 6kms) so a car is definitely needed. The room was lovely and the bed was very comfortable, however there are some issues that we felt let down the stay which are a bit... More

We have just come back from 3 nights stay at Castaways. Wow, what a fantastic spot. The accomodation is tasteful and spotless. Only a few minutes drive into apollo bay town centre but away from everyone. It is peaceful, and very private perched on top of a hill with beautiful seaviews/farmland. We stayed in room 2 which we were thrilled... More

My husband and I had stayed at Castaways back in March 2007 (see my review from 2007 posted as the Improper Bostonian - long story, but somehow I ended up switching accounts). On our return trip along the Great Ocean Road, we rescheduled our itinerary especially so that we could make another stop at Castaways - this time for 2... More

We had such a fantastic time at Castaways. Immediately when we arrived we felt relaxed and all smiles with such spacious private accomodation situated on a hill overlooking fields and the ocean over Skenes beach/ Apollo Bay. The room has a lovely relaxed feeling with timber floors, large comfy bed, clean furnishings, generous basket of continental breakfast for two days... More

Stayed for 4 nights at Castaways - very relaxing. Echo-ing a lot of the previous comments, the location is great, and the hosts more than helpful getting you orientated, and helping if you need any advice. It is located just 5km from Apollo Bay. The comments in the Guest Book in the room sing praises I have never seen so... More

My partner and I stayed at Castaways in December 2008 as a first romantic getaway together. Having travelled all over the world, bed and breakfasts have to be a favourite of mine. Castways is everything you expect in a Bed and Breakfast and more. It is located a little way away from the actual town of Apollo Bay, making it... More

My husband and I stayed in this lovely place for three nights during our recent trip down the Great Ocean Route. We absolutely loved it. The views are just amazing and you can even hear the sound of the waves. The B&B has got two rooms, which are separated from the owner's part of the house. That means you have... More

Although previous reviews had given us high expectations of this B & B, the room we were given exceeded our expectations. We were lucky enough to spend 3 nights here, each morning sitting in bed looking out over the sea. The Breakfast basket supplied means that you can have your breakfast whenever you want each morning and there was more... More
