Please read the comments made by unhappy visitors and the responses the manager has made before booking a holiday at Castaway Cove - Noosa. Some of the comments made are unbelievable !!! It is such a shame that managers can get away with saying such appalling things. Do not give your business to someone with comments like the below. My... More

We arrived and checked into a 2 bedroom apartment with no issues. Apartment was as expected, clean and tidy, fair size. Later in the evening we discovered that there was no hot water to the apartment. We found a number to contact the owners/ managers only in urgent situations and elected to wait until the morning. In the morning the... More

I’m sorry you were disappointed with your stay. There are plenty of other reviews by very happy guests. Yes, one of the two air conditioners in the Apartment was out of service – it happens. It takes a long time for contractors to assess and repair or replace major items such as air conditioners. Elise Shade argued that the unit... More

Enjoyed a wonderful four nights at Castaway Cove Resort. The villa had absolutely everything we needed to ensue a comfortable stay. We did not have a car so used the public bus service which was convenient. The bus stops are pretty close to the resort and some of the bus drivers went the extra mile and dropped us right there....

Thanks Eva for your comments. I would just point out, for the benefit of future guests who may not realize, that we are not a hotel, but are a self-catering apartment complex, which basically means that we supply the room, and guests look after themselves. There is no daily service provision like there is with a hotel or motel. Whilst... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When you stay at this absolute beachfront resort (no road to cross), you feel like you're miles from anywhere. On your doorstep is 15km of ocean beach, yet you are only a 5 minute drive from all the restaurants and shops of cosmopolitan Noosa.Located only minutes south of Noosa on a beautiful, unspoilt stretch of ocean beach, Castaway Cove offers a unique getaway in luxury 1 to 3 bedroom self-contained Beach Houses, Penthouses and Apartments - most with spas, private bbqs and spectacular ocean views.Enjoy an early morning walk on the beach, have a late breakfast on your private balcony, sip champagne in your spa watching the waves roll in, have a private picnic for two on the secluded beach, enjoy a BBQ on your deck, eat out at one of Noosa's many famous restaurants, arrange to have an in-house massage or just sit and relax in the comfort of your tastefully appointed accommodation.For the more energetic, there are walks (or runs!) Along the beach, a heated pool, full-sized tennis court, or hire a bike and go for a ride on the bike track. There are many golf courses in the immediate area, as well great tourist attractions such as Australia Zoo, Fraser Island, Underwater World or boat trips on the Noosa River and Everglades. All units are fully self-contained, well-appointed and have TV, VCR/DVD/CD players, high speed in-room wireless broadband - most are air conditioned. The friendly managers can help you with all your holiday plans and don't hesitate to ask if you require something special. ... more   less
