Walking distance to the harbor, supermarket and the Main Street where food outlets are. Fully equipped kitchen if you are cooking. wifi speed is good and the owner give you a good run through of the area when you check in. Thumbs up overall. No hesitation to recommend this place.

What a pleasure. Such a friendly greeting on arrival. Unit was immaculate with everything you could ask for. Beds very comfortable. 3 minute stroll to IGA and 2 minute drive to businesses on the Esplanade. Can't fault, totally recommend Castaway Holiday Apartments.

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Concise and to the point, what a great recommendation for Castaway; all a traveller really needs is a clean place to relax at the end of a day and have a comfortable bed to lay in at night and awake refreshed for another days adventure. Hopefully, and by the sound of...

We were welcomed warmly and given lots of advice on local eateries, shops and sights etc. The apartment itself was very clean, well furnished, had good heating and even electric blankets. Very quiet at night too. Very centrally located - easy walking distance to Strahan Harbour and the local supermarket for example. Highly recommended!

After looking at the limited stay options for Strahan we finally settled on Castaway Holiday Apartments. We recently spent two weeks in Tasmania and can honestly say Castaway was our favourite. When you are on the road and eating out all the time it can get a bit unhealthy and tiresome. This is exactly how we felt when we arrived...

We booked a two bedroom unit for two couples and were really comfortable. Just one bathroom but separate toilet. The unit was spotless with plenty of everything for cooking and the supermarket was close and there was also the cleanest barbecue in Tasmania(!) at your convenience. It was a steep,but close walk to the esplanade. There was no aircon. We...

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. To answer you final question first, Strahan fortunately doesn't get too hot throughout the year, we maybe get three or four days over 30 degs., generally the climate is cool with average temps of 21 degs, even in the warmest months. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the apartments and...

Owners were very friendly and helpful. Accommodation is well located near to the IGA and nice walk into the main strip on the waterfront. There is only a small number of apartments but there is plenty of room and they are very clean. TV was a little on the small side of the size of the apartment and could do...

Thank you for your review of Castaway Holiday Apartments. Not sure what to make of your review on the one hand very positive and then on the other somewhat critical, but in the end all fair comments, we do endeavour to keep upgrading the apartments but it does come at a cost.
