“Lovely family time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

We spent four nights at Castaway in adjoining apartments with our son, wife and 1 year old grandson. Our host had suggested this to us at the time of booking and it meant each family had their own space but we came together for meals etc. The apartments are warm, comfortable and roomy with a very well equipped kitchen. The hosts are attentive, friendly and hospitable. It rained the whole time we were there but it didn't spoil our time in Strahan. We were able to get out for walks in between showers. Location is convenient to supermarket and pharmacy and the esplanade and wharf area is only a short walk away. Yes the hill is challenging but manageable. A wonderful family break in beautiful Strahan. We will definitely stay at Castaway again.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and spent some quality time with your family. The West Coast is a great place to get away from the everyday routine, a wonderful place to recharge the batteries, and it is always good to see Tasmanians getting out and about in their own beautiful state.

We recently spent 2 wonderful nights at Castaway Holiday apartments. The location is perfect, amenities fantastic and the apartment was very comfortable. We were given a warm welcome and tips about what to do and see and loved our second stay in this stunning part of Tasmania.
The bushwalk recommended by our host was beautiful and we managed to sight and photograph a platypus which was a real highlight! - The Hugo's - Macarthur

We liked our large but cosy two bedroom apartment with well equipped kitchen and comfortable furnishings. Walkable distance to town and harbour but return involves uphill portion which may be a bit challenging for those who are less mobile but no problem with car. Hosts are friendly and helpful. Good range of complimentary movie DVDs available from office for use during stay if you so desire.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and were given a good deal of information on where everything is in Strahan. Our apartment was everything and has everything you would want for a good holiday. The unit was clean and comfortable and we could not fault anything. It is only a short walk to the jetty's and shops but due to rather wet weather we drove down. .

We really liked this motel style apartment complex. Simple, homely and meticulously maintained is is a pleasant place to spend time in when in Strahan. Plenty of space, comfortable beds and lounge furniture and a kitchen equipped with microwave, toaster, jug, fridge etc. Bathrooms are big and clean. Owners are friendly and offer good service. Easy walking distance into Strahan town and docks. A supermarket is close by.
FOR:
Good location is quiet yet close to town
Close to other amenities
Very clean and well maintained.
Plenty of room
AGAINST:
We would have like to see a couple of hotplates and saucepans etc. in the kitchen.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Lots of positive and clinical feedback; but we are a little confused by your comments about hotplates and saucepans in the kitchen. The kitchens all have three saucepans, non-stick frypan and cassarole saucepan, plus a full size cooker. Having said that we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us here in Strahan.

The apartment had everything we needed for our short stay, it was spotlessly clean and in good order. The owners were friendly and welcoming with lots of local information. Laundry facilities and wi-fi were available for nominal fees, $2 for laundry and $5 for wi-fi. It was a short downhill walk into the centre of Strahan and close to the local supermarket. The apartment was excellent value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. We appreciate your time in sending through a glowing review of the apartments. We do strive to provide value for money for our guests, and the little things like nominal fees for internet and laundry go a little way to keep our guests comfortable and happy.

Stayed here recently with my friend on a trip to Tassie. Booked it off the Internet and found other peoples reviews to be most helpful. Booking over the Internet can be hard as you don't know exactly what you're going to get when you arrive. In this case it was a lovely surprise to find the units were spotlessly clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. Perfect location within walking distance to many attractions and town centre. Peaceful and quiet giving one a really good nights sleep. Everything you could want in a 'home away from home'. I'd fully recommend Castaways to all my friends and anyone else looking for reasonably priced, friendly, clean and comfortable accomodation. Thanks!
