My partner and I stayed at Castaways in December 2008 as a first romantic getaway together. Having travelled all over the world, bed and breakfasts have to be a favourite of mine. Castways is everything you expect in a Bed and Breakfast and more.
It is located a little way away from the actual town of Apollo Bay, making it very private and tranquil (and being on a cattle farm, you may get some visitors mooing at your window). The breakfast hamper was more than adequate. The rooms were well furnished and clean, and over looking the ocean. The hosts have thought of every detail in the room making the stay enjoyable. My partner loved the large bathroom with a double shower head! There are DVDs and books for you to enjoy if you wish to relax on the deck, or if your partner refuses to get up at a decent hour!
I would definitely stay here again - and only wished we had more than the two nights as it was a very relaxing place.
