The location was stunning but not for the fainthearted as the road from the town of Coromandel was mostly gravel & very windy, but we loved the whole experience of the remoteness of the place. The negatives were: the cooking hob was not the best & the microwave was in a very bad position - on top of the fridge. Also the pantry staples were not adequate. Thankfully there was a Weber BBQ on the deck. Apart from that we would highly recommend this place.
Staying at Castaway was a real joy despite almost a week of wet windy weather. Perched at the edge of the bouldery coast felt like being on a boat without the movement as ocean swells rolled in. Lovely deck to enjoy the sun when it did shine.
Watched the lightning, listened to the booming thunder, heard the crashing waves, woke up to blue sky and sunny day, observed the ancient pohutakawas and there roots binding the rocks together. Location is unbeatable, Accomadation suits the environment perfectly.
