Booked in for 2 nights for 3 adults, Arriving a little late, but Bev stayed there until we arrived. She was full of information both about the rooms and the locality. The rooms are extremly clean and well kept, especially for their age. The beds were comfy, and the loungroom/dining area was larger than we had seen in other units... More

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. It is always a pleasure to hear our guests say, they wished they could have stayed longer; no better recommendation for any accommodation.

Everything is exactly as all the other excellent reviews say, but for us, extra special, as my husband had mislaid his shorts and Bev and Jim found them and actually drove out to Hogatth Falls with them as we'd said we were going there and left them on our car, as they couldn't reach us on the phone.
