“Comfy & Clean !!”
Reviewed 15 December 2013 via mobile

Was so pleased to have found this gem in Strahan. Our family of 6 stayed here in the family apartment which was perfect for us with a double & 2 sets of bunk beds.
The owners Jim & Bev were warm & welcoming. They've done a wonderful job of providing apartments that are spotlessly clean, comfy and have everything that you'd need.
We loved our time in Strahan...though it was overcast & a little drizzly on the day that we were there, the wonderful people of Strahan made our visit both magical & unforgettable. The staff on the World Heritage Cruise, the actors in the must-see play "The Ship that Never Was" and the "Bushman" at Bushman's Cafe were charming and made us fall in love with this lovely Tasmanian west coast town.
Thank you Castaway & Strahan for wonderful memories !

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. What a wonderful review of The apartments and Strahan itself, we are so pleased you had a great stay in our little town. We are only too pleased to pass on our knowledge of Strahan and point out the great characters and activities in Strahan and surrounding areas. Glad to hear you pulled in "The Ship That Never Was" play at the Richard Davey Ampthitheatre, great entertainment for young and old alike.

Stayed here for two nights and absolutely no complaints. The apartment was well set up with everything you need for self catering. It is within walking distance of the main township and has a supermarket one block away.
There is a large living room and a comfortable bed. The resident owners are very helpful and should be proud of the property.
Highly recommended.

Stayed for two nights and a warm welcome from Bev who settled us in and explained where everything is...fully equipped apartment which was very clean and tidy....comfy beds and huge living area with fully equipped kitchen made for some lovely meals at night..

Plenty of hot water and honor system laundry made our stay most comfortable...supermarket and chemist etc one minute walk away...

In house Internet access can be paid for but we didn't use it as I used my Telstra account which by the way is the only carrier I could find.. so if you need mobile access ensure you have a Telstra account..

Cruise terminal and shops, restaurants etc about 4 minute walk away.

Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Strahan and hoping the railway will be running then...

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. What a wonderful recommendation from you for our apartments, positive feedback and kind comments. We are pleased you took full advantage of the kitchen facilities and prepared some lovely meals. When on holiday you don't always want to eat out and the self catering option gives you the chance to get back to some good old home cooking. Great news the train is running out of Queenstown, limited journey, every morning at the minute and hopefully will be back in Strahan by the end of 2014.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and managed to enjoy some of the wonderful walks around Strahan. Hogarth Falls, through the rainforest in the People's Park is a hidden wonder, and a nice flat walk for all ages.

Stayed here 2 days. Our place was clean, large, nicely furnished. The location was great and we were able to walk to the main town area. The staff were so knowledgable and friendly and so hospitable. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 2 nights while in Strahan. On arrival the owner couldn't have been more helpful providing information about the area and places to see and answered all of our questions. We had the family room which was ample for our family of 4 and were provided with all utensils we would need to be self sufficient while in Strahan, but there are plenty of restaurants around. Short walking distance to the town centre made it easy to get around, and when the power went out on our second night (apparently most of the west coast lost power, which is something outside of anyone's control) - the owners came round and made sure we knew where the torches were and checked that everything was ok. Would definitely come back!!

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are so pleased that you had a wonderful stay in Strahan, and found the apartment had everything you needed to make the stay more enjoyable. We thank you for your understanding during the lengthy power outage, luckily not a regular occurance, and as you said something out of our control.

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!
