Comments The Great
Everything is in walking distance. We walked from the airport to our accommodation at Cocos Castaway. The Cocos Castaway is the absolute best, everything you want is there. Washing machine in the room, freezer on the balcony, sharp knives for the sour dough bread purchased from the local bakery, a short stroll to the foreshore for evening drinks, supermarket across the road, close enough to the library to get WIFI and even portable clothes racks to dry clothes in the air con overnight. Just perfect.
