We liked our large but cosy two bedroom apartment with well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Walkable distance to town and harbour but return involves uphill portion which may be a bit challenging for those who are less mobile but no problem with car. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Good range of complimentary movie DVDs available from office for use... More

We received a warm welcome on arrival and were given a good deal of information on where everything is in Strahan. Our apartment was everything and has everything you would want for a good holiday.

We really liked this motel style apartment complex. Simple, homely and meticulously maintained is is a pleasant place to spend time in when in Strahan. Plenty of space, comfortable beds and lounge furniture and a kitchen equipped with microwave, toaster, jug, fridge etc. Bathrooms are big and clean. Owners are friendly and offer good service.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Lots of positive and clinical feedback; but we are a little confused by your comments about hotplates and saucepans in the kitchen. The kitchens all have three saucepans, non-stick frypan and cassarole saucepan, plus a full size cooker. Having said that we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us here... More

The apartment had everything we needed for our short stay, it was spotlessly clean and in good order. The owners were friendly and welcoming with lots of local information. Laundry facilities and wi-fi were available for nominal fees, $2 for laundry and $5 for wi-fi. It was a short downhill walk into the centre of Strahan and close to the... More

Stayed here recently with my friend on a trip to Tassie. Booked it off the Internet and found other peoples reviews to be most helpful. Booking over the Internet can be hard as you don't know exactly what you're going to get when you arrive. In this case it was a lovely surprise to find the units were spotlessly clean,... More
