I've just returned to the UK from my 10th visit to Cocos Keeling, and my 10th stay at Castaway. So, what is there left to say that hasn't already been said? - idyllic atoll complemented by superb accommodation - just about sums it up. The owners, Graham and Annelies, who also live at Castaway, are always helpful, attentive and friendly,... More

We recently stayed at the Castaway from the 19th to the 24th of January for the 1st time. What an awesome adventure, the idyllic tropical paradise! Stunning peaceful quiet islands. Great beaches and snorkelling. Amazing wildlife especially the big land crabs running around at night. And absolutely spectacular fishing. The Castaway is the perfect place to stay. Just a walk...

I've been on this planet awhile. Some may even say too long. But I have incredibly fond memories of another time, another place (let's call it childhood) when everyone knew everyone else, you didn't have to lock your doors, kids could play all over the place and the neighbourhood in general kept an eye on them, people were friendly and...

Annelise made sure we had a comfortable stay by greeting us at the Airport, reserving motel restaurant dining prior to landing and making sure we settled into our accommodation ok. As a family of 4 the Castaway 2 bedroom bungalow was just right for us, The self contained accommodation had all we needed, good sized rooms, welled planned layout and... More

Noone could complain about the view; the ocean view apartments are spacious, comfortable and pleasant. However, it was astonishing to me that the managers failed to speak to us once during our week long stay. This was all the more puzzling as there was a cyclone at the time. We expected them to come and make sure we were au... More

Cannot recommend the Cocos Castaway enough! Private, comfortable and everything we could possibly need. The Castaway made our holiday and we can't wait to get back to the islands and stay there again. Less than 3 minutes walk to the supermarket, tourist info, Dory's cafe, restaurant, airport and bar and with a beautiful room fully furnished with washer, full size... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay while on the 3-day business trip to the island. My colleague and I occupied one room each, with the front room opening out to the balcony and a view to the ocean! Everything was so clean and well-laid. It's like a light breeze brushing over a silky lake, fitting perfectly with this heavenly island setting. Annelise... More
