Stayed in Cocos for six days, was stranded due to cyclone. However, it was the best thing happened in my life. Not many people know about this place and that's what makes it unique. You have lots of privacy in this tranquil place. Don't expect restaurants and cafes !!!! Not a place for massages & eating luxury.... if you are...

My partner Eva and I travelled to Cocos Keeling to scuba dive and we were absolutely delighted with the scuba diving and equally with our accommodation at Cocos Castaway. The fun started the minute we walked out of the airport. On being greeted by our host Annelies and Dieter from Cocos Dive we then rolled our luggage trollies the 150...

My sister and I stayed with our parents in a two bedroom single story apartment. There aren't many places in the world where accommodation right next to the airport is a good thing, but this is one. Pretty much everything on West Island is next to the airport, which means that you are 15 seconds away from your room when...

Beautiful beaches all around - a must do the motorised kayak with Kylie and Ash - the snorkelling and beaches will blow u away.i I...

We had a great stay at Castaways - beautiful little self contained room, a few foot steps to the beach and right in the heart of the small community! It had everything we needed during our stay and no disturbances!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Graham and Anneliese at Cocos Castaway, any more relaxed and I may have been unconscious! The villa was terrific, fantastic view, clean with that nice and new feeling, even better than we hoped. Graham and Anneliese are fantastic hosts, always available to help or answer any questions whilst leaving us to just enjoy and...

I’ve been to the Cocos Islands three times—and that makes three times I haven’t wanted to leave. We’ve stayed at Cocos Castaway each time and think it’s the best accommodation on West Island. It’s the only accommodation that’s situated right on the beach—you can lie in your hammock on your deck watching the sun go down over the ocean, with...

Such a beautiful place to stay. Graham and Anneliese are wonderful hosts. This was our second visit and won't be the last. My parents and friends have been 10 times and are always pleased. The sounds of the ocean in the mornings, the veiw, the sunsets, just wonderful. Thank you. We will be back

After a stressful work period there is no better way to relax and ground yourself. No phones no internet, it was exactly what we needed. The bungalow is very nice, fully equipped and located directly at the beach. Bar, restaurant and supermarket are only a coconut throw away. Graham and his wife Annelies were very helpful, nice and friendly. We...

We usually have a holiday which involves spending every waking moment seeing the sights and travelling from one place to the next. Cocos Island is a place to unwind and relax.
