We had the perfect 3 day getaway at Castaway on Tallows. The house design was great, as we were upstairs with our two kids (10 and 8) and my parents (here on holiday from Thailand) had their own space downstairs – they loved their own deck by the pool and their own kitchenette to make themselves a morning cuppa. We had such great weather, we loved our morning beach walks across the road at Tallows and the kids even went in the pool. We walked each day to The Roadhouse for great coffee and walked for brekky at The Byron Bay General Store – yum! It was so easy to cook at home with the fully set up kitchen and eating out on the big covered balcony was amazing and under those festoon lights in the big backyard. The servery window in the kitchen was great too – I sat outside with a glass of wine giving moral support to my husband while he cooked us all a seafood lunch! We can’t wait to come back again!



"Everything was perfect!" Castaway on Tallows was absolutely stunning - and SO spacious! We loved the neutral, beachy fit-out and styling. The outdoor entertaining area is incredible and I highly recommend you spend time out there with wine, cheese and bikkies! The best part of our stay was just how sparkling clean and well-equipped the property was. We were blown away by the care and effort that has gone into making our stay so perfect! Close to the beach and to local shops and eateries - this home would be ideal for a group of friends or family! We will be back!



"Loved our week at Castaway on Tallows!" What a week! Thanks Castaway on Tallows for the best week away with my family. We haven’t had a holiday together for about a year and I was a bit nervous booking in winter but we had the best weather and the house – AMAZING! We took the kids through the national park to the beach every day – the perfect start to a morning. Our teenage son got to escape the pre-schooler and toddler (and us!) and sleep in that cool downstairs retreat – I tried to swap with him but he wouldn’t have it. He did babysit one night though and we went for dinner in town, which was such a treat and super close. The pool was warm and we had a dip each day and the (little) kids burned off energy kicking the ball in the backyard. Loved the styling – I have to find out where those bamboo pendant lights in the kitchen and lounge are from! Hubby can vouch for the sofa, as he enjoyed a few naps on there. I finished my first book in about 5 years – so relaxed. Loved it all.
