I’ve been to the Cocos Islands three times—and that makes three times I haven’t wanted to leave. We’ve stayed at Cocos Castaway each time and think it’s the best accommodation on West Island. It’s the only accommodation that’s situated right on the beach—you can lie in your hammock on your deck watching the sun go down over the ocean, with...

Thank you for your kind and lengthy review. It was an absolute pleasure seeing you both again, and seeing in the New Year with you. Hope our beautiful islands will tempt you to return again soon.

Such a beautiful place to stay. Graham and Anneliese are wonderful hosts. This was our second visit and won't be the last. My parents and friends have been 10 times and are always pleased. The sounds of the ocean in the mornings, the veiw, the sunsets, just wonderful. Thank you. We will be back

After a stressful work period there is no better way to relax and ground yourself. No phones no internet, it was exactly what we needed. The bungalow is very nice, fully equipped and located directly at the beach. Bar, restaurant and supermarket are only a coconut throw away. Graham and his wife Annelies were very helpful, nice and friendly. We...

We usually have a holiday which involves spending every waking moment seeing the sights and travelling from one place to the next. Cocos Island is a place to unwind and relax. Cocos Castaway is ideally located with the airport, supermarket, Visitor's Information Centre, the pub and Tropika Restaurant within one block. We stayed in the Sea Shanty room which is...

Our third time on Cocos!! Myself and two of my employees stayed here at Cocos Castaway. Wonderfully run by Annelies & Graham, can not pick a fault to be honest, they'll go out of their way to help or assist you. Definitely the best accommodation on Cocos Island.

Our second visit to the cocos, will be our yearly holiday spot. Loved our room, we spent most of our time at the room outside sitting on the verandah watching the ocean. Very relaxing, the room had everything we needed.

We stayed in the front room named Sea Castle. It was a stones throw to the ocean with stunning views and the sound of the ocean to lull us to sleep. We were left to ourselves for the week, but the owners were never far away if we needed anything, including access to other services in town. The room was...
