Stayed 11 days august 2015. The larger bungalows are very spacious and well appointed. The position next to the water is first class.Every convenience for our stay was there, albeit a larger TV would be nice as the TV reception is good! Cocos Island is in very early stages of tourism and it may disappoint some unless you make the... More

We stayed at Cocos Castaway in 2014. It was a nice two bedroom all self-contained cottage with very beautiful environment. The cottage was a self standing one, which was just like a normal house segregated from other cottages. Less than a minute walk to the coral sand beach, where palm trees were growing and many coconuts were lying. The cottage... More

This was our first stay on this amazing Island in a well equipped, clean studio at Cocos Castaway. The location is fab and really close to the airport, shop, bar and cafe. There are only two flights a week and the airport is otherwise closed so being next door is not a problem. We made great use of the Castaway... More

We spent 10 days in a unit called "Sea Shanty" at Castaway as part of a package with 2nd Wind sail boards from Perth. The unit was immaculate and very comfortable and cool. Great bed, slept in a lot. Everything you need for self catering is there. There is a lagoon 75 paces from Sea Shanty, and beach combing along... More

What a destination... and fabulous accommodation as well. Cocos (Keeling) Islands really is an unknown hidden gem. So laidback and untouristy with plenty to do or not - whatever suits you. Our accommodation had everything we needed including the beach towels. Wonderfully clean and inviting with a gorgeous deck and seating so we could enjoy the outdoors as well.

As you fly over the Cocos Islands and see those colours and beaches, you realise that your holiday is going to be marvellous and you did choose the right destination. Our big regret is not booking for longer than a week! Annelies was waiting for us with a lovely smiley face and immediately we felt welcome. This feeling was with... More

We stayed 12 nights..it really is paradise and there is no other place like it. Accommodation is well maintained, very clean and fabulously comfortable. We slept like babies from the first night! Great location, one minute walk from everything. Annelies and Graham have thought of everything....perhaps given the length of our stay, a full height fridge and a cooktop would... More

Thanks Annelies and Graham for another great holiday. We have stayed here so many times (13 times in 15 years?) we have run out of things to say!

Following a cyclone on Christmas Island, my plane was diverted to Cocos. For a week. I didn't have a choice in accommodation, but because Richard Branson was footing the bill I wasn't so annoyed at the lack of servicing of the room at the Cast Away. I ended up washing the sheets and towels myself, and I had met a... More

What good fortune to be given a week all inclusive on our beautiful Cocos Islands. All of the quality holiday accommodation on Cocos Islands is self contained offering regular/weekly servicing. None of the accommodation properties offer daily changing of linen and towels. It is disappointing that you have chosen to rate Cocos Castaway against a daily linen service that is... More
