Not quite what we expected...it was better. No big fancy resorts and thus every beach you go to (and there are dozens) is your own. Plenty to do if you want water sports, wildlife, photography or to just lay back and soak up the sun. The climate is very nice, all year long. We had a little rain and cloud,... More

We stayed at the castaway for 3 nights. The room was comfortable, clean and the location was great. Graham and Annelise were great hosts and shared their knowledge about the Island with some good tips and general advice. The unit had everything we needed and more. We would definitely stay again. Thanks also to Graham for alerting me that I... More

The Cocos islands are very laid back, so don't expect high rise or drinks by the pool. Castaway offers a few Balinese style low key bungalows right by the ocean in lovely grounds. Plenty of space (for 2), could be crowded for 4. Great outdoor area for drying kitesurfing kit (which is a good reason to visit Cocos in winter).... More

Everything from the welcome at the airport to our departure was faultless. Our accommodation was perfect, it was clean and had everything that you need from a well equipped kitchen including a washing machine, comfortable bed, bathroom, living area and the deck which had an ocean view - bonus :) Cocos Castaway was well located in that it was 2...

Absolutely LOVED Cocos Castaway and highly recommend it. The Chalet is comfortable, style full and has everything you need from hammock to washing machine, eskies to chilled out BBQ area where you will meet other kind and awesome people. Go find out yourself!

Accommodation option was a four sleeper chalet, neat clean accommodation in an awesome location which included a private balcony overlooking the ocean. I'd recommend this over the two sleeper flats which are not that private and don't have sea views if you have options. The rooms are comfortable and beach towels are provided which is very practical. Food is expensive... More

Cocos Castaway is a relaxing seaside option 2 minutes walk from the airport. The rooms are basic, but clean, comfortable and well provisioned with most having an attached veranda with a few chairs and a table. The Cocos Islands have some of the best beaches in the world but don't come to the Cocos if you crave for a luxurious... More

Thank you for your recent review, and glad to read the Cocos Islands offered you a pleasant holiday. Cocos Castaway certainly does relate to your suggestions about the grassed area, unfortunately this land does not belong to Cocos Castaway, and therefore we are not permitted to make use of it as suggested. But the comforts of our guests are our... More

Castaways was recommended to us (as was Cocos) and we can whole heartedly pass this on. We could not have wished for anything more to have been supplied to enable our comfort and the information and friendliness we received from Annaliese & Graham was exceptional. Tip: Friday for fresh bread - essential. Bethere early!

3rd stay on Cocos Island and 2nd stay at Castaways! (And won't be my last visit to this Island paradise either!) Can't recommend Castaways enough. All the villas are beautifully appointed and has a lovely non-specific tropical/beach theme. They are spacious and comfortable - fully air conditioned with ceiling fans; great bathroom/shower; normal sized fridge(as in not a bar fridge);... More

The amount of heart and soul that has gone into creating this accommodation and maintaining the gardens is quite staggering!!! We spent a week there and it was sensational. Definitely the best accommodation available on the Coco's Islands. Every thought or whim has been catered for here at Castaway with the kitchen fully kitted out with eskies, picnic baskets, mosquito... More
