Lovely clean beach property.

Gorgeous Getaway
Bev was a wonderful host, leaving special touches to enhance our stay at Castaway. The house is perfect and we didn’t want to leave! We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and will definitely be back!

5/5 Excellent

Great house
Really enjoyed the holiday

4/5 Good

Lovely house and beautiful town
Lovely, sparkling clean property with fabulous semi covered big deck nestled amongst trees. 1 minute walk to beautiful Macmasters Beach. Great place if you have a dog, very dog friendly beach with long off leash area. Dog friendly cafe at the beach, food is just ok but the view and vibe is wonderful. Terrigal is only 15 mins drive for your choice of many eateries. Note there is no fenced backyard so you will need to take your pet outside for toilet breaks. Would definitely recommend and come back!

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing stay
We had a lovely week at Castaway, the first holiday with our dog. The property being so close to the beach was great, we were able to enjoy several walks a day in between the rain which persisted all week. The property had everything we needed, the kitchen had every pot, pan, bowl and gadget you could want. We had a very relaxing time.
