We showed up to 1770 in the dark with no plan. As we drove along the water, we saw the sign for this place. Went up (a lot of stairs from the water side) to see about vacancies. The friendly owner had a room available, the "Escape" room. He instructed us to go around, up the hill, and park in... More

By far the most pleasant beachside accommodation I've ever stayed in. I booked the Sunset Shack, which is the easiest to access, the others being up MANY stairs. No problems if you're young and fit. Very comfortable beds, fabulous deck, and right next door to a restaurant. (Can be noisy on rubbish collection morning) Paradise really.

We stayed in the studio shack-(the Tree house) Spotlessly clean with everything you could need. Great reception on arrival and a lovely bottle of chilled vino in the fridge! well recommended, and with a bar and restaurants meters away. A lovely relaxing stay-Thanks guys!

My husband and I stayed here over 10 years ago and nothing seems to have changed. As many of the reviews suggest, the location is just magical and incredibly serene. There's not too many spots like this one and it appeals to couples and young families for a number of reasons. Firstly, 1770 is actually at the mouth of a... More

I think my title says it all. It was amazing to find such a jewel tucked away in sleepy 1770, a must for anyone seeking a "switch off" from the everyday stresses and commitments. So much thought and imagination has been poured into each of the rooms, a great WOW factor! Vicky is a delightful host and has a lot... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on our road trip from North Queensland. It was a last minute decision to stay in 1770 but after the beautiful meal next door at the pub we wanted to stay.

The photos can't capture the brilliance - open air, gorgeous little shacks look over an ocean stretch. Service was warm and welcoming - Vicky was lovely and helpful. Restaurants close by, modern kitchens and bathrooms, we didn't want to leave! Will definitely be back.

Ideal location with river/beach accessible over the road. Comfortable relaxing apartment. With open slatted windows (no fly screens) mozzies can be a problem. Main bed had full net over which worked well but second bedroom and beds did not.

Great that you enjoyed our beachfront location. The push out timber shutter windows in the bedrooms were utilized for their authentic tropical design inkeeping with the theme, and to capture breezes and be able to be left open when raining if desired. Very sorry to hear the mosquitoes were a problem. We do supply plug in mosquito repelling devices all... More

Amazing place. Comfortable, affordable, friendly and beautiful setting looking out across the water from any spot (except the bathroom LOL) in the entire condo. The only thing that would have made it better is if we had more time. Next time will make sure we have extra time there.
