“Stay Here!!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

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. The open windows, wooden deck with hammocks, the mosquito net beautifully draped over the 4 poster bed. The stunning sunsets, everything was perfect!! We saw Dolphins and Eagles from the point so recommend a walk up there also.

Room Tip: From what I saw they all look great!!!

The Beach Shacks at 1770, What can one say to describe your own bit of privacy in PARADISE.
For my 68th Birthday my hubby shouted us to a 8 day holiday at the 1770 Beach Shacks and we stayed in the Beach Shack called the Escape and could not fault this shack, it is a two bedroom shack with every thing you could need and it was spotless and very private. The sunsets and the sunrise views from the shacks is spectacular and you could sleep with the bedroom French doors open so you could here the sound of the ocean through the night, and the weather was very kind to us ( right time of year 15/8/13 to 22/8/13) even through the days the views were so very clear and clean. We had several meals at the Tree House Hotel next door and you could not fault the meals or the service, we also went on the dray trip on the Larc's around to the lighthouse and saw Dolphins on this trip and food was provided, we would recommend this to anybody as it was very enjoyable. We also went on a day trip over to Lady Musgrave Island and saw whales on the way there and on the way back and the food that they provided was exceptional and plenty of.
We would like to thank all of the staff of the Larc's tours & The Lady Musgrave Island tours & all of the staff at the Tree Hotel & last but not least David the owner of the Beach Shacks for all of your friendly service as it was all of you guy's that made our holiday as outstanding as it was.
Please do not change to much as you have a slice of PARADISE as it is.
Thanking You All

We came upon the Beach Shacks quite by accident and stayed for two nights. Beautiful location, great hosts, unique in so many ways. The sunsets were gorgeous and there was a pub and restaurant next door. Couldn't have asked for more.

We checked in after dark. When we awoke at sunrise next day the view was mind blowing.
The rooms have character - this is no bland motel chain. The hospitality is 1st class. Pub & bistro nearby.
Great location for a honeymoon or romantic stay.

It's a small place Seventeen Seventy however their are A LOT of choices for accommodation is such a beautiful spot. After scanning TripAdvisor we picked here. And boy were we glad we did! This place is in THE PERFECT position in town.

Corey and Krista, spoiled us by upgrading our room from a single bedroom to a two bedroom, with a bottle of champers to boot. All because we were there for hubby's Birthday. We got shack #2 second one up the stairs and boy what a set of stairs! This place is 'not' really suited to those with bad knees! Our shack was called 'Light House' And the quirky theme was Balinese and brilliant. Timber, bamboo, push out panel windows , timber floors, timber beds, just very authentic and full of ambience. Great and simple kitchen with everything you need and a BIG fridge. Outdoor bbq on your deck, hammock, table and chairs and banana lounges and with that view....you will be spending A LOT of time out there. Main bedroom opens on to the deck with big french doors. Mossie net covers the bed and sadly yes you need it. Really comfortable mattress too. Second room had a double bunk and a double bed. Bathroom had a walk in shower and was plenty big. Living area is divided in to a dining area and the lounge TV area. Big flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player and a good stereo.

This is a place you could spend plenty of time in. We were there two nights and wished it was two weeks! It's kept spotlessly clean. Nice linen, towels and toiletries. Cool sea breezes and right opposite the beach and water. Watching the sunset is a local past time and it's perfectly positioned to do it from your deck.

I can't recommend this place highly enough, we will go back and for longer! However the bar/restaurant next door...though handy is VERY expensive. $4.50 for a coffee will give you the idea. And that's a shame, but I think they are charging for the location? Which luckily 1770 Beach Shacks is not. It's incredibly good value for location, service and accommodation.

Go and enjoy.

Room Tip: The shacks run up the hill via a set of stairs. Number 1 is at street level, Number 2 next up etc e...

Thank you for giving our Beach Shacks such high praise. We are absolutely delighted that you and your husband had such a special birthday treat...and you are right about those sunsets!!!
Managers Cory and Krista took great pleasure in making your visit that much more special.
Love your pics
Also love that you appreciate the timber, casual tropical style theme...... yes a casual decor theme, but we are always striving for the utmost enjoyment experience in accommodation.....and also agree, the stairs aren't for everybody.......but hopefully worth the climb.
Thank you again for taking the time to write this review.

Went there for two nights with high expectations because of the reviews and the price - and they were even surpassed! Huge balcony with BBQ, table for four, two Lounge chairs and a hammock! Huge open area with Kitchen, couch and another huge table to dine in. If you can afford it, definetly a place to go.

We stayed at the Beach Shacks for 2 nights with our Aussie friends before and after taking the day trip out to Lady Musgrave Island. Our bedroom was lovely and we liked having the windows wide open to enjoy the breeze and hear the birds. The lounge and dining area was spacious allowing the four of us to kick back, eat dinner at a large table, and enjoy the views. The veranda was lovely as well.
We cooked dinner both nights, so I can't speak to the dining nearby, but the kitchen was roomy and the four of us could comfortably cook and visit at the same time. Lots of stairs to our room, but it was worth it! It was just a short drive (5 min) to the dock where the boat leaves for L.M. Island.

Room Tip: As I've mentioned in previous reviews, stairs aren't easy for me, so perhaps a lower room mi...
