“Simply awsome”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Highly recommended - worth the long 6-7 hours drive from Brisbane for us.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in the first 'shack' from the beach - awesome views, safe swimming beach (at high tide) only few meters from the room, spacious layout and an interesting design to boot. Beats a boring motel stay anytime. Very reasonable pricing for what you get (a lot). Friendly owners, good service.

Road noise is minimal during the day as it is a dead end road - nothing bothered us at night = slept in every day...

The open kitchen is fully equipped but as our stay was a birthday treat, we ate out all the time - could not believe the great food quality in The Tree House literally next door - exceptional for a small seaside township, frequented mainly by tourist & backpackers. Every brekky & dinner was top notch.

Won't book anywhere else next time we're traveling around 1770 region.

Room Tip: Was told our front house 'Sunset' (I think) has the best views - we didn't inspect the o...

We stayed here for the second time, in the smaller 'Tree House' room this time. As a place for two it was well sized and has a nice verandah and all the quality of fittings of the larger room. For the location, with a great view across the bay from room and verandah, and adjacent to a nice restaurant and bar that is also opposite the bay. Fittings are very nice and the place has a very 'bush' feel to it.

I see others have been unhappy with the tree house, and this may relate to the strange pricing policy; every room/apartment is the same price making the larger rooms down the hill much better value. Leaving that aside, for what we got we were happy to pay what we paid so we gave it five stars again, which we rarely do

I stayed here three years ago with my now fiancée. It was, in my opinion, the best holiday I have ever had. The accomodation is incredible! Beautiful rooms and an amazing balcony, with spectacular views. The staff (a Swedish girl and Aussie guy at the time) went above and beyond in their service. Due to flooding, rains and luggage lost, I'm sure their patience with us was tested! However they made sure we got everything and arranged tours and suggested trips for us.

There is an amazing restaurant at the bottom of the Beach Shack. Food, drinks and service were second to none.

Plenty of activities within walking distance, including a super jet, air plane trips to sand islands, the pink vehicle to the light house, snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, etc.

I hope one day to return, as I have such strong and fond memories of this place, especially the accomodation, staff and location!

1770 is well off the beaten track; it took us about 5 hours to drive from Noosa - but it's well worth the trip. The shacks are well appointed with 2 bedrooms and a veranda with a hammock. The location and views are stunning.

Worth checking out the pub/restaurant next door.

Hightlights of our stay - the day trip to Lady Musgrove; SUP; and the sunsets.

Thank you

You really feel you've escaped when you are here. Waking up to a view of the ocean from your bedroom is something else. Very interesting design of the shack with a large open area. Perfect to enjoy the sticky Queensland heat. I'd stay at least 4 nights as there is lots to do in 1770/ Agnes. I would recommend it to anyone.

Yes, the 'Shacks' are certainly designed for the Queensland summers to catch those beautiful coastal breezes. Each bungalow has individual special features and hopefully you might get a chance to stay with us again.
As always we appreciate you taking the time to write this and your willingness to reccomend our accommodation is paramount to us.

As a Baliaholic, the reviews of the Beach Shacks at 1770 had me really hanging out for a fix. I certainly got what i came for!!! The accommodation was indeed in true Balinese style right down to the beautifully folded towels and fresh flower touches on the beds. There were lots of lovely little reminders in every corner of that beautiful country. Location wise : tick. Fantastic restaurant next door : tick. View from the verandah : tick. Personalised attention with booking and greeting : tick. The need for mozzie coils : tick. Just like Bali.

Stayed at 1770 Beach Shacks in December 2012 and really enjoyed it. The town is small and Agnes Water isn't much bigger, but the beach was most enjoyable and the beach "shacks" were very comfortable. I loved the location of my shack, right across the road from the beach and having a kitchen in the shack saved a lot of money as eating out is expensive in Australia. Nothing but praise for 1770 Beach Shacks and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Recommend a shack with a kitchen as it will help cut costs on eating out.

Yes we love that our guests do get to experience the "just across the road from the beach' location, and all the wonderful views etc that come with it in these unique Australian coastal locations.

Very glad the kitchen helped make your stay more comfortable (and more affordable of course).
We are happy to advise that all of our Beach Shacks are self catering.

Thankyou so much for your praise and for taking the time to write this.
