Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Location is lovely but unfortunately this place was very over priced for the dated accommodation.
For the price ($400 per night!), we were also surprised to see that we would be charged for leaving dirty dishes in the sink. Quite a concern that the cleanliness of dishes is left up to the customer... not sure everyone has the highest hygiene and cleanliness standards.

The Edge grounds are immaculate. Gary, the manager would be out early and still working into the evening ensuring the resort was in perfect condition. Pool area,BBQs great facility for us to have dinner every night. Great spot for group booking. Walked down to beach and along shoreline to patrolled beach. Lovely spot.

Gary the manager on-site was amazing ! He had so much knowledge about the town from where to eat and what the best beach is !
It is about a 10 min walk to the beach but well worth it ! The water was lovely and warm but fairly rough.
Room was lovely and the air con was awesome !
We were in a garden view room and it was facing the road but honestly it’s such a little town there was not much traffic at all and you could only hear it when outside on the balcony.
Pool was lovely and I was glad that one was not heated as I am from Canberra and so I was really hot and did not want a heated pool :)

From reading some of the other reviews I think some people have a different idea of what 1770 is it’s a small beach town with beautiful beaches and super close to the reef !

Overall a lovely trip !

We recently stayed in unit 56 and I can safely say it’s one of the worst kept and maintained apartments I have ever stayed in.

It was hard to find a single wall that wasn’t dinted, marked, full of old screw holes, or just plain dirty.

The stained bedspread wasn’t much of a welcome, and the copious amounts of dark curly hair all over the bathroom floor was a concerning sign as to the overall hygiene of the house keeping. One of the heat globe lights in the bathroom was missing as well.

The lounge and cushions were also covered in stains, and the missing blind in the lounge room didn’t offer much privacy.

Backing on to the main road we heard pretty much every single car that drove past, day and night. We were not able to open any of the balcony doors due to the constant noise.

The complimentary wifi was a nice touch, if it worked. After multiple restarts of the modem we gave up.

The cooktop has lost all the temperature guides so it was hard to gauge how hot the stove was.

Either the owner of the apartment is not aware of the amount of damage and disrepair, or they just don’t want to spend the money on the repairs. Having seen one of the one bedroom units in the complex, our two bedroom apartment was certainly well below the standard. I can understand money is tight due to COVID, but what we paid certainly didn’t represent the sub-standard accommodation.

We’re very disappointed that we unfortunately ended up in this terrible apartment and certainly would not recommend it.

This is a very relaxed and comfortable property. We stayed in a 2 bedroom townhouse which is very large and well equipped. The townhouse has direct access to a large pool which is great for families. The grounds are well maintained and the property is generally quiet. I highly recommend this property for families. Our stay of 7 nights was extremely well priced. If you are going with a family, take your push bikes as there is a well maintained bike track into both Agnes Water and 1770.

The Edge On Beaches is a very nice and quiet accomodation. We stayed with my family for one night in middle July in a pools' facing vila. The property has four very nice open swimming pools and a barbecue area. The property is also located on walking distance from the beach.

We had a very nice stay at Edge on Beaches. Even though it was close to full it was super quiet. Gary the manager is excellent and doesn't seem to stop working. He even put up with us locking our keys in the villa twice with a grin (or was it a grimace!). In our one bedders the kitchens are modest (as we were told they would be) but there is a frypan, microwave and toaster, and good BBQ's outside so you can cook most things you need. One pool was heated, the others were not, which was fine. All in all a great place for the money.

Our family stayed in January and I have been meaning to leave review to say thank you for assisting to make our stay really nice. Sometimes it's not what the issue might be at times, it's how it is fixed that makes the difference. We had a nice stay. Thank you.

We stayed for 2 night and had a pool view apartment. Such a beautiful apartment for a very reasonable cost. Pools are beautiful and well maintained. The apartment had everything we needed, and a very large kitchen and fridge.
My only suggestion would be to put a different mat by the lounge room door for guests using the pool, the tiles got very slippery and I slipped and fell really hurting myself.
Make sure to take extra bin bags, Tupperware and cling wrap as we forgot to!

The best holiday spot for couples or family. Interesting setting with seperate pool for each block of villas. Each villa overlooks the pool and bbq area. At peak holiday season noise from other units may be a problem, especially when young families are staying. But while we were here in early spring it was very peaceful.
Well situated between Agnes & 1770.
Will be back.

Does it have a restaurant
Answer from TheEdgeonBeaches
Australia
We don't have a restaurant on site, but the rooms do have cooking facilities as well as our lovely BBQ area located near the pools for self caterers. For those wanting to treat themselves Plantations restaurant is just across the road. There is a local shuttle service that will take you to any of the restaurants or cafe's around town. The Agnes Water Tavern also has a free courtesy bus to and from the Tavern.

Is the pool heated ?
Answer from StephanieSzabo
Gracemere, Australia47 contributions43 helpful votes
No, it's not heated. We visited in April, and found it too cold to swim in, even in the middle of the day. But funnily enough the kids staying there seemed to not be worried about the cold pool.
