Perfect accommodation, close to airport, visitors centre, shops, club, restaurant and cafe. Air conditioning, comfortable bed, very clean, well appointed kitchen, wonderful deck to sit and enjoy view. We hired a vehicle from Graham and Annelise, this was necessary to get to swimming, surfing and fishing spots. Bikes were also available at no cost. Would return tomorrow, great holiday destination.

Centrally located, Clean and well presented, comfortable room. Our hosts Graham and Annalies were friendly and helpful. Free bicycles available which we made good use of. Nice relaxed feel. Just the holiday we were after.

A lovely beachfront bungalow with all amenities needed for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. We've been warmly welcomed by Annelies at the airport. With her friendly, knowledgeable and helpful approach she made our hideaway very pleasant.

Villa was lovely, had a nice island feel with lots of amenities including washing machine, picnic basket set, umbrellas, bikes and beach towels. Staff were very friendly and informative.

I arrived back on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands after an absence of 9 years to be warmly welcomed by Annelies at the airport and shown to our beautiful bungalow "Oceanique", situated in the heart of the settlement and a few steps walk from the beach. Each morning we wandered down to the waters edge to see the turtles and small... More

Location: less than two minutes walk from the airport, the supermarket, a couple of restaurants, tourist information and the Cocos Club. Ferry bus stop one minute away. Friendly hosts: Annelies leaves you to yourself, but offers you as much friendly advice as you want when you want it. If you're flying out on a Tuesday you can keep your room... More

Absolutely delighted with our stay at Cocos Castaway! Hosts are very helpful and friendly.

Truly what you would expect a tropical island paradise to be. Palm trees, brilliant blue ocean, sunshine and friendly locals. Step off the plane, walk across the road and enter your beach front bungalow. Spotlessly clean, fully equipped and surrounded by tropical gardens. The rooms are large and the deck is perfect. Step back in time, there is no need... More

Paradise and Lunch is the title of an album by renowned artist Ry Cooder which amply sums up this pristine holiday destination. Let me tell you, if you're after a resort experience with all the trimmings Cocos is probably not for you. However if you are happy to cohabit in a very casual environment where you can go for a...
