“Just great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

We stayed 6 nights in July and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Just read all the other 5 star reviews. They are all true. Would definitely stay there again, hosts were genuinely friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Pick up some supplies in town as it is about a 5 minute drive from the township.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My partner and i stayed here for a weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Karla and Elvis were very friendly and helpful..with nothing too much trouble. Setting the scene for a lovely stay.
The cottages are also very nice... the beds are comfy, the kitchen well stocked with everything you could need including nice wine glasses which is always appreciated!
A bath would have been nice but the 2 showers were spacious with huge shower heads.
The gardens are beautiful and clearly a labour of love over the last 12 years.
Really nothing to fault - we will be back!

We were late arriving so when we went to the Café we were greeted by Karla. The villa's are a home away from home, en-suite plus a bathroom with a washing machine, mini clothes line, iron and board and kitchen to do easy meals. The restaurant is so good we ate at least 1 meal there everyday. The wood fire pizza are the best I have ever had and as for the Lamb spit on a Wednesday/Sunday night, wow!. We stayed 7 nights, oh so peaceful and loved looking out onto the big water lily pond beside the café. Elvis and Karla, Michael and Mrs M this is a credit to you all.

Our welcome was the best welcome we have had anywhere in the world!! You really don't have to be a millionaire to experience the service and attention a millionaire would get spending their big dollars for some fancy pants place. You can get it right here. Getaway 1770 is family owned and they all just give you the warmest care and attention, nothing would be too much trouble for them.

The cabins are surrounded by tropical gardens keeping them very private, and inside they are spacious and just Beautiful, with lovely plantation shutters and a King size bed that was soooooo comfortable. The cars are not parked right near your cabin, this allows for peace and quite from cars and people coming and going, but there is a trolley to help you unload your car which is only a short walk.

The café is the BEST home cooked food we have eaten Anywhere! And we are very fussy, with tummies that don't always agree with the food that is served to us even in the fanciest restaurants.

There are beautiful secluded private beaches which are only a few minutes walk away, and we
were in paradise! Not another person to be seen anywhere!

Only two minutes from the town and the busyness of life, this peaceful resort is a hidden treasure that could charge much higher rates but they don't.

Thank you again Michael, Elvis, Carla (and Mum) we loved everything!!! Tracy and Paul

Room Tip: All the cabins seemed equally lovely.

If going to Agnes Water you should choose the 1770 Getaway. This resort is for people who like a relaxed atmosphere and a great service. The resort is family owned and managed, and you feel welcome the moment you walk into the reception/restaurant.
The location is a short drive out of town, but this is part of the charm, as this makes the resort peaceful and quiet - the perfect place to relax. A short walk takes you to beautiful and secluded sandy cove beaches nestled between rocks. You feel as if you have your own private beach.
The food is great and the villas are large and well equipped.

We walked in and were immediately charmed with the hospitality and setting. The garden setting make the grounds feel lush, yet private. Each individual bungalow contributes to the sense of privacy and luxury. Our unit was well apportioned and impeccably clean. Because we were unfamiliar with the area, our hosts went out of their way to make sure we knew about restaurant choices, how to find the grocery store, and provided tips and maps for hiking/outdoor adventures. It's obvious that the owner/operators care about guest satisfaction and will take the time necessary to ensure this.

Fourth year in a row that we've crossed the Pacific to enjoy this little piece of paradise - this time for 8 nights. The well equipped villas are nestled in a delightful tropical garden. While the facilities are nice, your hosts, Michael, Vera, Elvis & Carla outdo themselves in hospitality, warmth & friendliness. Elvis spent considerable time helping me figure out a travel issue I was having. Carla's cappuccinos are fantastic. I believe on our first visit Michael remarked, 'come as guests - leave as friends'. So true! Don't want to cook? The inviting cafe environment adds to Vera's fine home cooking. Top your stay off with a day visit to the reef which Elvis will be happy to arrange for you. A great place to really relax, refresh & re-charge. We'll be back!
