About Castaway Norfolk Island accommodation  …  Castaway Norfolk Island is owned and run by Sarah and Tony Watts who have undertaken an extensive refurbishment program to present the island’s newest addition to its accommodation offerings.  Built in the 1970s by Sarah’s grandfather, Ken Prentice, The Castaway, as it then was, had a long and illustrious life as one of Norfolk’s cherished accommodation houses.  Sarah and Tony have taken on the rejuvenation of this Norfolk icon as a personal challenge and Castaway Norfolk Island has flourished under their energetic approach.

Sarah, Tony, little Stella and schnoodle, Pepsi, make Castaway Norfolk Island your home away from home when you holiday on Norfolk Island.  It is an oasis of calm in the centre of Norfolk Island.

The Castaway is a 20 room boutique property located in the heart of Burnt Pine.  All rooms are a stylish, modern design with garden views. The property features an onsite restaurant/bar, and covered deck overlooking the valley.
