We loved our apartment, it was clean very comfortable, and we loved the layout. I could retire in this apartment the only thing missing is the man cave(shed). Central to everything, not that Strahan is very big, but just down the road is the supermarket. With self catering facilities, just what we wanted.

Thanks guys Maree & Graham Blines xx

P.S. We accidentally left with your pen, sorry!

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us in Strahan, and approved of the homely accommodation. It is a great recommendation of the apartment to say you could happily retire here, but not just yet. Thank you once again for your kind comments.

We booked this accommodation via the net and we were delighted with everything at this price.
We had a 2 bedroom apartment with good kitchen and bathroom and a big lounge with dining table.
Thick towels and lots of hot water.
The place was spotlessly clean and well equipped including a communal laundry with washer dryer and wash powder all for a gold coin donation.
The host was friendly and very informative and nothing was too much trouble.
We could walk in a few minutes to the cruise and a supermarket was literally a minutes walk away.
A brilliant choice of accommodation for everyone.

We had two nights here in early October, and in line with other reviewers, were very happy. Spacious, well equipped and clean at an affordable rate. When stormy weather prevented us taking the cruise, board games and videos were provided. Pleasant owners added to the experience and if we return would definitely book Castaway.

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.
