Castaway Holiday Apartments

Reviewed October 6, 2013

We have just spent 4 nights here and could not have been happier. Bev and Jim were great hosts and clearly understand what tired travelers need. $5 for internet access for the entire stay. Kids were happy. Everything clean and tidy. Wife happy. This equals happy husband. Simple things like a working torch in case of power outage, clothes horse and gold coin donation washing and drying. Soap powder and softener there to use. It is these simple things that make a good place great. Will definitely stay there again and most certainly recommend to family and friends. Two weeks before we arrived, Bev sent me an update on the railway as she knew we wanted to go on it. Thank you.
Keep up the good work. Don, Julie Lachlan and James.

Spotless spacious two bedroom apartment with full kitchen with near new appliances. One minute walk to the IGA and five minute walk to the esplanade, where the restaurants and attractions are. Laundry facilities including laundry powder and an honestly system of a gold coin donation for the upkeep of these facilities. The owners were very hospitable and were happy to offer advice on things to do and see and driving directions.

The Castaway Apartments were all that we expected from others reviews and more. The owners were very helpful and friendly. We were particularly impressed with the guest laundry facilities as we struck some very damp weather during out stay in Strahan.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, even with the damp weather doesn't appear to have spoilt your stay in Strahan. It is a magical place, each day is different, but that is the beauty of the West Coast of Tasmania.

Arrived in Strahan on the 7th of August just for the night, ended up returning a week later for two days. Great place to stay, clean and well maintained, Bev and Jim should be very proud of Castaway's presentation and quality. We will be returning.

Thanks

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. What a great recommendation of Castaway from you; you stay with us for one night, travel to the other side of the island and then return for two nights a week later. We couldn't ask for higher praise and we appreciate your comments, it shows our hard work is reaping dividends. Thank you.

The Castaway apartments are very spacious and maintained to the very highest standard. We originally only booked for one night but when Bev told us the cruise boat was running the next day, we extended our stay for an extra night. We were very glad we did.

The proximity to the local shopping centre was fantastic. Strahan town was just down the hill as well.

I can recommend this as a great place to stay in Strahan.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We were only too pleased to offer you the cruise, a great day on the Macquarie Harbour and Gordon River. We are surprised at the amount of travellers who are unaware that we have such an awesome wilderness region on our doorstep, and the cruise is the only way to see it at ground level. We are so pleased you enjoyed the extra day in Strahan, and please keep spreading the word.

We stayed here for one rainy night in April, but as we had arrived after dark, we would have liked another night to see more of the town of Strahan. The family apartment is modern and clean and well set up for self catering, with nice and good heating. The owners were very accommodating in allowing us to do washing and leave it hanging while we went on the river cruise for the day. We were then able to collect it (despite having checked out in the morning) in the afternoon and be on our way. Highly recommended for family stays. Also we can highly recommend the World Heritage Cruises trip up the Gordon River. Such magnificent landscapes and history.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We were only too pleased to offer you the laundry facilities during your stay, people are always on the go in Tasmania, it helps to be able to catch up on all the boring chores and still haave a memorable day out on a World Heritage Cruise. Hopefully next time you will spend a couple of nights with us and soak up the Strahan atmosphere and history.

We stayed for one night in June on our two week holiday around Tasmania. Couldn't believe the size of the apartment... two large bedrooms, lounge room, full kitchen, large bathroom. Spotlessly clean and you can park right outside the door. All for only $100 per night. Very quiet, no traffic noise and we didn't hear any of the other guests. Absolutely loved Strahan, the scenery is beautiful. When we were there it was cold and wet but still lovely.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Travelling around Tasmania during the winter months can be most rewarding with some great bargains to be had, we are no exception. You may see lots of snow, you may see none; but what you will get is days of rain mixed in with some magical crisp, clear days. Best of all, next to no traffic on the roads. Hope you enjoyed your two weeks in Tasmania.
