The Castaway Cottages are well appointed with everything you could need. Haidee was a pleasure to correspond with and met us at the airport with our golf cart. After a quick tour of the island, she showed us to our cottage, Shipwreck #1. It was decorated beautifully, clean, bright and airy. The sea breeze was blowing gently through. The fridge...

Indy and I spent the first four nights of our honeymoon on Salt Cay. It was the best decision we ever made. Haidee and Porter couldn't have been better hosts. Talk about romantic... We saw 8 people over a 5 mile beach, the whole time. I recommend this for anyone!

Our experience is a little unfair because we had the good fortune to be the only tourists staying on all of Salt Cay nevermind Castaway. Life could not have been better. We arrived in paradise.

Secluded. Quiet. Stunningly beautiful. Beach to ourselves. Snorkeling 30 feet from shore. No one else in sight as we spent each morning napping in the gentle winds listening to nothing but the surf. Perfect for us. Not the Ritz, so if you demand constant service this is not for you. If solitude is your thing, then enjoy the peace. Rent...

“We stayed in Crusoe #2 and I am sure that the others were just as nice.”

“Crusoe #2 is furthest away. We stayed in Shipwreck #1, perfect and quiet but less private than Crusoe #1 and 2.”
 of 5 bubbles mlsearles, 5 Feb 2016 | Read review
“Castaway is two houses with two units in each house. We lived in the most easterly one (Crusoe2) and that means a bit more shade from the pines. It also means more wind but that is usually good, because it is the wind that is the natural AC and it works very good.”

“All rooms are good”

“We stayed on both sides of the cottage. The last cottage is great for the cross breeze from the tradewinds. All rooms are great. Although there isn't air conditioning, it wasn't necessary. There is a constant breeze coming through.”
