Coco's 2020
Our stay at Coco's castaway was magical. Very centrally located to all night life and restaurants. Room was immaculate with everything you need. Annalise and Graham were superb host's/owners and made you feel special. Dieter, booking, looked after us and is also the dive master. Gardens and beach side with turtles galore playing in the the surf. Scooter hire was simple with a very relaxed attitude to pick up and return, through Castaway. You feel like a part of the island family when you stay here. Have already provisionally booked for next year, just waiting on work approval.6 out of 5 stars.

Excellent for island living
Location was walkable to airport,bar,restaurants,supermarket and tourist information office. Car rental availability with the owner. BBQ area on site. All cabins are the ocean side of the road. Everything you need for self sufficient living on this magical castaway island. Highly recommended Note: Internet plans are purchased at Tourist Office and then accessed via Hot Spots. The one in Castaway worked perfectly so easy to sit on veranda whilst checking your emails

Lovely place to stay at and would highly recommend
I just spent 10 nights at Castaways for a kitesurfing holiday. I would highly recommend staying there. I stayed in a superior studio that could sleep 3 guests. The room was quite spacious, aircon, washing machine, large fridge and kitchenette with everything you could thing of. ie, eskie, picnic hamper. I loved the large veranda with a hammock, which was very relaxing after a long day of kitesurfing. The location is very central, the grocery store, bar and eateries were literally a stone throw away. And on the other side you were right by the ocean. They have some table & chairs setup under a fig tree, which was very peaceful of a morning watching the turtles feeding along the shore. Annelies and Graham were excellent hosts and helped anyway they could. Graham's a keen kitesurfer too, which was very handy in sharing knowledge of where to go and what to look out for. While I was there, I had some kitesurfing lessons from April who runs the F-One kite school. She was a very good instructor and would highly recommend her for lessons. I had a such a good kitesurfing holiday, I'll be back for next season. :)

Castaways close to beach , with view
well suited for our needs . ie fishing Annelise was a fantastic Host , and Dieter set it all up so easily. Cocos folk were all extremely accommodating in making us feel we were at home , to the extent we were treated as locals - just magic ! David O Dowd provided well with transport around West Island (Cocos Car Hire) Other excursions provided were well done We will probably return in a couple of years time Cheers, William & Sue Batchelor

Perfect getaway
The Cocos Castaway was the perfect accommodation for my getaway. Right next to the ocean, clean, with everything you could possibly need. Excellent if you want to prepare meals in the villa (frying pan, tongs, toaster, microwave, etc. provided). All of the essentials in town (bar, restaurants, community centre) are less than a minute walk. Graham and Annelies are brilliant hosts, very helpful. Would highly recommend.
