Overall we were very happy with our stay here. The staff are very friendly and the location is great with an IGA, a bottleshop and the foreshore very close.
They have lots of movies to choose from and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a laundry you can use for a gold coin donation which was very handy for us.

On the negative side, we stayed in unit 1 which is closest to the road so we were woken every morning by traffic at around 6am. The main bed in that unit is not very comfortable and the bathroom is wheelchair friendly, which is great, but meant it had a horrid shower curtain that loved sticking to your legs.

The place is very family friendly.
Make sure you check our the mutton bird nesting area and local waterfall (where we saw a platypus!), reception should be able to give you the details.

Room Tip: Room 1 is for wheelchair access but it is closest to the road and has an uncomfortable bed.

Clean and convenient location, very near to the town centre. Jim and Beverly offered good advices to us on how to spend time in Strahan. She is also thoughtful to offer VCD and games to our children for spending their time the night. The service apartment is very spacious and well-equipped for family holiday.

Myself and my family stayed at Castaway Holiday Apartments. It was very very clean and spacious and very close to the wharf in strahan where we went on a gordon river cruise. We were given a 10% discount on the cruise when we arrived (thanks very much) and the kids loved borrowing the games. Very friendly and helpful couple who run the apartments, we enjoyed our stay at castaway!

The owner Beverly was really sweet and friendly. When she knew that my friends and I were heading towards Hobart upon checking out, she alerted us that the roads on the route via Queenstown was not in good condition due to the snow and advised alternative route via Burnie. She is well-informed on such situations and we really appreciated it because we had limited internet connection in Strahan. She also kept us informed of shops closing hours and gave recommendations on activities that we could do.

The apartment that we got was clean and well-equipped with kitchen utensils, clothes rack, heater, tv, electric blanket etc. It just felt really homely. There is a designated area within the compound where we could do laundry. But there is only one washing machine and dryer. Washing detergent are supplied by the owners, with a kind donation asked for using.

The place is walking distance to the wharf (about 10mins) and supermarket IGA (less than 5 mins).
