Cast-away is set among beautiful sheltering trees. The Cast-away 'walkway' provides convenient access to the beach pathway opposite that leads directly onto beautiful Macmasters Beach. While the kettle's boiling for the morning cuppa, you can check out the surf and beach via the path opposite. Accommodation comprises 2 queen bedrooms, and a 3rd bedroom with 2 king single beds. All bedrooms are large, bright and airy. The bathroom and an additional powder room are both recently renovated and include shower, 2 toilets and 2 vanity areas.
Cast-away has a large rear fully secured deck with semi roof covering for weather protection. This deck is sheltered and provides a 'birds-eye' view of the local wildlife with baby mud-larks nesting on nearby tree branches, lorikeets, friendly kookaburras, blue bower birds displaying their finest and many local bush turkeys and ducks from the lagoon come visiting. This deck is perfect for bar-b-ques and outdoor dining (table seating for 8) and catching up with some quiet reading time away from the hectic pace of a day of beach, fishing and surfing. There is also a second covered deck leading to the front door and off the boardwalk providing a lovely sunny morning aspect (perfect for the early morning cuppa).

The bright sparkling new separate kitchen looks out over the trees and duck ponds and includes oven and stove-top, microwave, large upside down fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
The lounge is a large relaxed space with fireplace, TV and DVD/Bluray and comfy sofas. The dining area (table seating for 4-6) opens to the large rear tree-top deck. Plenty of DVDs, books, magazines and games are provided.

There is a 2nd beach shower for a rinse off after a day at the beach, a separate laundry, outdoor furniture on both decks, hooded gas bar-b-que, convenient undercover parking for 2 cars and a great large concreted driveway-play area for kids on bikes/scooters and outdoor games.

You can fall straight into the surf from the beach path opposite, swim at patrolled Macmasters or Copacabana Beaches and their beautiful children's pools and natural rock-pools, have a quiet paddle on Cockrane Lagoon (3 mins down the road), surf the perfect wave breaks, choose a spot anywhere along the beach for beach fishing - or just do them all! Great dining is also a stroll away - Enjoy breakfast or dinner / take-aways at the many beach-side cafes at Macs and Copa beaches, and enjoy a casual Thai dinner at the surf club cafe on Friday and Sunday evenings.
*Boogie boards and soft surf boards are available for hire 3 mins up the beach at the Copa shops.

Once at Cast-away you don't need to drive anywhere! Macmasters Beach is a patrolled beach with rock-pools, a safe shallow children's beach pool and playground. The Macmasters Beach surf club is also open for drinks and the Thai cafe is open for dinner (early opening hours) on Fri and Sun evenings. At Copacabana Beach (also patrolled and only a 5 minute beach stroll away pass the unique Cockrone Lagoon) there are friendly grocery shops, a range of beach-side cafes, a great bakery also serving gourmet pizzas, bottle shop, chemist, beauty and hair salon and a newsagent.Take a walk along the beach at dusk and sunset for great casual BYO evening dining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ideal getaway We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Cast-Away for the 3 nights. We were able to walk on the beach everyday with our dog. The house was a perfect setup for a tranquil, peaceful and getting away from the city. Easy drive to local shops for stocking up, as well as sampling the nearyby cafes. Would recommend Cast-Away to everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect beach getaway Castaway is the perfect long weekend getaway. We stayed 2 nights and didnt want to leave. Macmasters beach is a short stroll away, no excuses for daily beach walks and swims. The beach is secluded compared to other overpopulated beaches nearby. The house is fully equipped. Just bring your food and grog. Even hire the linen and save yourself the trouble of packing then washing it yourself. So peaceful you can hear the birds. Beautiful 3 bedroom house on poles. Driveway and car parking underneath with outdoor shower to wash off the sand. Bathroom and shower beautifully renovated and the bedrooms good size. Thanks Bev and Barbara, we cant wait to come back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Castaway at McMasters Beach We enjoyed our stay at Castaway . The location was perfect for a blissful getaway from the pace of everyday life. The property is nestled in the bush with wildlife surrounding you, but you are only 100 metres from the beach

Rated 4 out of 5 by from peaceful and easy We had a great weekend at Castaway. The house is well equipped and child friendly. Brand new kitchen and bathroom were lovely. The weather was unseasonably cool at the start of our stay and the house was very cold - as it got warmer, the extensive shade became more welcome! Highly recommended for a chilled out family getaway that's so close to the city.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect place for a quiet girls weekend Myself and 3 other ladies had a relaxing and rejuvenating weekend at Cast-Away. We were looking for a quiet location close to the beach offering cafes and general shopping. We enjoyed coffee at the local surf clubs and a fabulous craft market at Terrigal basketball stadium which was only a 10 min drive. The house offered everything we wanted. Special notation to the new kitchen which was fully equipped. We spent a lot of time cooking and splurging in food and eating on the balcony. Many thanks to the up to date reading magazines kept in the lounge room and many movies to choose from. Late check out on the Sunday afternoon made the weekend seem like a full weekend and not cut short by the normal check out time. We intend on making a trip to Cast-Away and annual event. Thanks to Barbara for her prompt, professional and courteous assistance in the booking of Cast-Away.
