Stopped over for one night while doing a trek down the great ocean road. Booked into room 2 and was pleasantly surprised by the view it offered. The staff/inn keepers were fantastic and completely left us to our own devices which is exactly what we wanted. Felt as though they were close enough if we needed them, but far enough...

Stopped for two nights in late May. Whilst this is the end of autumn, there is still good weather to be had on the Great Ocean Road. The location is set back up above the road with a wonderful view of the sea and bay. We stayed in room 2 which is beautifully laid out, a very comfortable (and large)...

We stayed at the Castaways Apollo Bay during the Australia Day weekend this year. It was a heavenly getaway and just what we needed being newly pregnant. The view of the ocean was stunning and added to the tranquility of this b&b on the hill. The beach is nicely accessible by walk and the Apollo Bay township is only within...

The stay at Castaway was very pleasant with a full view of the ocean. It is a good place for short stay 2 to 4 nights. The space of the unit is well utilized. It is a self contained unit and well laid out. No wi-fi and that can be an issue for some however probably great if you wish...

This place was a little overpriced, but the view was beautiful and relaxing. The owners were lovely and the room was spotlessly clean. The room could do with some more comfortable furniture. The cane lounge was uncomfortable, as was the small metal chairs. With a comfotable two seater lounge and some comfy outdoor chairs, this place would be perfect. Recommended...

A great room with an outstanding view, Castaways was a perfect spot for a weekend away. We were in Skene's creek for a wedding essentially but this was such a great spot that it really felt like a weekend away. The bed was very comfortable and the room quite spacious. Exceptionally clean and great bathroom and kitchenette facilities. The hosts,...

Though a bit costly end of B&B accommodation, you have to pay for the view you get. other accommodations i enquired around are even costlier. Clean and comfortable accommodation and helpful host. No internet as it is a remote area and I didn't need internet to enjoy the nature. Though wifi signal is very strong, that doesn't mean it has...

This place was amazing! We were the only ones there and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Amy was kind enough to organise a gluten free breakfast basket for us and it kept us going both mornings we were there. The bed was so comfortable as well. Thanks for a great weekend!
