We had a lovely 5 night stay which was a day longer than planned due to the Virgin flight 27 hour delay. From the time Annelies met us at the airport to walk us the 100 metres to the unit til her husband Graham helping us to open coconuts during our last hour on the island, we couldn't really fault...

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... More

Run by Annelies, there are 5 large rooms and 2 suites. One of the rooms and the suites are completely sea-facing (lots of turtle sightings), with wonderful big terraces. The other rooms are set behind and have 'partial sea- views'. This means that the sea can be seen from the terrace, through the trees. The rooms accommodate 3 people and... More

Wow Cocos is amazing, a place I cannot fully describe to you unless you go there to see its raw beauty yourself. You land in a tiny airport ( I wouldn't call It that) you collect your bags off of a trailer and pretty much you then step outside and are welcomed by a gorgeous warm heat. Annelies was there...

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.
