The owner was very welcoming, friendly and customer focused who provided local insight on many local attractions. Great service. Prices are reasonable and affordable. The room was very comfortable and the amazing view from our large balcony was just paradise. The towns of 1770 and Agnes water are in a beautiful part of the world and well worth a visit!... More

Now this was one out of the box. Virtual beachfront accomodation, magnificent views no matter which shack you book and Dave is one of the more helpful, pleasant managers you will come across. The laziness of reading a good book while lying on the balcony hammock cannot be underestimated. If I had to be critical, if I have sat on... More

We decided to stay in 1770 as a way of accessing the great barrier reef. Unfortunately, the weather did not allow us to go to Lady Musgrave. So we spent 4 days in 1770. Out stay centered around the "shack'. We were lucky in that we stayed in the treehouse which is the highest lodge with spectacular panoramic views of... More

Such a shame you couldn't get to Lady Musgrave Island but sounds like you made the most of your stay. We love hearing how much you appreciated everything our area has to offer. The bird life is amazing and those sunsets do take your breath away sometimes. Thank you for staying at our 'Shacks'. Kind regards, David and Jan More

Loved this place. 1770 is a small town but if you love the water and nature it's wonderful - paddle boards, kayaks, surfing, boating and access to the reef. What more could you want - a comfortable gorgeous self contained place to stay with the best view from a bed ever. Fantastic location, comfy beds, well equipped kitchen and did... More

Stayed in the tree house right up the top, awesome view over the 1770 inlet. Rooms were nice and airy, clean and comfortable. Value for money was fair and really enjoyed our stay. Right next door to the pub which served good meals. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend 1770 beach shacks for a couple wanting to get away from it... More

We had a great stay at The Treehouse. The cabin was absolutely stunning. Beautifully decorated, overlooking the beach of the tiny town of 1770. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We would have loved to stay longer but could only stay for one night as the cabin was booked thereafter. Fantastic place to relax and undwind - a definite... More

Great to hear you chilled out and relaxed here in 1770 !!! The Beach Shacks were certainly designed to capture the cool breezes....and located to feel like you are on a tropical island.....but with the convenience of the mainland. Hope you can come back. Best regards Jan and David More

Wow! Amazing, beautiful, incredible, different, relaxing!!! 5 adults and 2 children spread across 2 of these stunning Beach Shacks, next door to each other, opposite the beach. PERFECT! They are well equipped with adorable little touches, the towels on the beds, the lead light windows dotted around, the cute decorations.
