“You won't find friendlier owners anywhere.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment which was spotlessly clean. Kitchen was very well equipped and with the supermarket a 4 min walk, we were able to prepare most of our meals to save a few $$$.

DVD's are available for the kids to borrow and any information you need will be given happily by the owners. We loved our stay and highly recommend you stay here.

The units are spotlessly clean, beautifully maintained and well equipped. The Resident owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful, they have a large variety of DVD's which are free for guests its a nice touch.

You won't get better!

Great apartment and location. comfortable new bed. Well equipped. Lady who owned it couldn't have been more helpful. Great breakfast for $10. Looked newly refurbished. It is an uphill climb form the waterfront but worth the walk. Supermarket just around the corner.

Had 2 nights at Castaway. 2br S/C unit was clean and comfortable. Staff / Owners are friendly and informative. Units are close to the main tourist attractions of Strahan. The up hill walk from the docks area may be difficult for some. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to others especialy families

Unfortunately for our 3 night stay in Strahan we were only able to stay at Castaway one night. The service was excellent, the apartment spotless. We were even able to hose our very dirty car and do our laundry with great ease. Strahan is a beautiful place and Castaway is somewhere you will most certainly be glad you chose.

Room Tip: At peak season book in advance because this is somewhere that you can just relax and enjoy the delig...

Thank you for your great review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are glad you enjoyed the one night in the apartment and the three nights in Strahan. We agree with you that Strahan is a beautiful town and the friendly community only make it more appealing. Great to hear you took advantage of the laundry and car cleaning facilities.

We were lucky enough to spend 3 nights here and love it. Strahan is always a terrific town, been 4/5 times and love it. Must say, always been pretty lucky and had decent weather! This time we did the seaplane (awesome) and the World Heritage Cruise (brilliant). 30 degrees, kept checking with the locals making sure that we were in the right town. You have got to love Tassie!

Room Tip: All good, go for it.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Great to think you keep returning to the West Coast of Tasmania, and still keep finding new adventures; it must be the clean air that brings you back. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to meeting with you once again, very soon. Go Tassie.

My husband, myself and an American friend stayed here for three nights in February 2013. It was a terrific place to stay as the apartment was so clean and very roomy with two separate bedrooms and a good open plan lounge dining kitchen area. It was lovely and quiet but very handy to shopping and the town. The couple running Castaway Holiday Apartments were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there when we go back.

Room Tip: As the Castaway is in a very quiet location any of the rooms would be good.

Thank you for your review, we really appreciate your kind words. It is good to think we are speading the good word about the apartments throughout the world. As you mentioned the apartments can cater for three or four people in comfort and still offer a degree of privacy.
