My husband and I spent a week here over Easter. We were greeted warmly with a complimentary cuppa in the cafe overlooking the lily pond - 100% customer service straight away! Elvis then gave us a map of the area and highlighted some of the local beaches, before showing us to our cabin. The accommodation was first class, with quality... More

We just spent Australian Day weekend at this quiet relaxing accommodation with beautiful tropical landscaping. The owners are friendly and welcoming and pass along information for kangaroo siting along with good beach info. The king sized bed was a wonderful surprise, as that size isn't often found here. Definitely will stay here on our next visit.

A much needed break from my busy work life, my families stay at 1770 Getaway in the self-contained cabins was a truly a relaxing 7 night experience. From the beautiful gardens filled with both natives and exotics, to the large green lawns and water features surrounded by natural paper bark tea tree forests and sea breezes, it is the ultimate...

1770 Getaway is an exceptionally well run 5 villa holiday park. My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed its tranquility. Only 5 Villas so your peace is almost guaranteed. Villas were spacious and very very well appointed. Highlights included the private beach, a short ten minute walk away where you are almost certain to be alone.... More

Not a motel, not a luxury resort but the "Getaway" is obviously much loved by the family who own it. Though not really far from shops and a small town, this feels like the middle of nowhere and it is lovely to wake up and hear the birds. The units are modern and comfortable and the only thing that I... More

We were welcomed by friendly staff who were very knowledgable on the local attractions. This was very helpful. We were also pleased with the bonus on the day of arrival of the offer of the Spit Roast for dinner in the adjoining restaurant, which was fantastic. This is a surprisingly quiet location set in tropical gardens which offers a restful... More
