“Lovely home away from home”
Reviewed 20 July 2013

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.

Stay here last June (2012) and had a time. Very clean, spacious, everything you need.There is an IGA just down the road, and you can walk to the main street. Would recommend if going to Strahan for a visit,

We stayed here for two nights on our way to Devonport. It is only a short walk to the main shops, although the walk back is a good fitness workout as you walk up a very steep hill.
Our two bedroom apartment was basic but very clean, comfortable, spacious and warm. The bed was so comfy it made it hard to get up in the morning!
Unfortunately, in the winter months you are quite limited to the things to do in Strahan and two days is more than adequate during these months and places to eat is also very limited. Therefore, why pay for anything fancier with accommodation during the winter months when the Castaway Apartments tick all the necessary boxes for an enjoyable stay.
A great bonus was free use of a wide variety of DVDs

Stayed here after viewing accommodation that we had already booked and rejected. Jim and Bev could not have been welcoming. The place was spotless and very well equipped. Nothing was too much trouble. Close to shop and cruises etc. Would recommend to anyone heading to Strahan.

Nothing fancy here but you are paying a good price for warm, convenient, clean rooms with the basics that you need. Owner also happy to lend her videos and board games if you need them. Happy to go there again. Thanks

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Having the cruise cancelled at short notice was a disappointment, but we hope you still enjoyed your stay in Strahan. DVD's are always a pleasure on cool winter nights, but no substitute for a wonderful day out on the harbour and Gordon River.
