We stayed 3nights in The Escape Shack. We were absolutely delighted with this unique style of open air accommodation. The presentation and cleanliness were top rated. The peace and quiet was such a contrast to our busy hectic lives. The views from the deck were amazing and the sunsets spectacular out over the inlet. 1770 has a local pub for afternoon drinks and dinner and great fish and chips at the marina. A short 7 min drive takes you to Agnes Water to a number of eateries, Foodworks and the best Gelato for an afternoon treat!! We were so sad to leave this peaceful haven. The hosts are so welcoming and helpful with information and I commend them on the beauty they have created in this special hideaway. If you want a quiet relaxing break this is for you. Thank you.

What a fantastic place to simply chill and wind down. The "creek" is right across the road where you can swim, fish or simply lie in the sun. The villas are fully self contained, with all that you need for a great getaway. As long as you don't mind wood and I mean wood everywhere, then you will love the rustic feel of the place. Agnes Water is a short drive up the road for your groceries and limited shopping. The pub next door is ok but but the drinks and food at the marina, a short 15 minute walk away, are a better choice. With views north to Bustard Head, the lighthouse winking at night, sunsets that set the world on fire and great hosts in Jan and Dave, you will not be disappointed. We will be back.

Room Tip: Bring bug repellent and fly spray. You get bitten. A small price to pay. Not a place for those...

Accommodation is perhaps amongst the best we have stayed in, due to its unique design. Perfect in every way - a king size bed would be the only improvement. Planning our return already. Location was great, across the road from the water, and next to the pub. Serene and private. Sunsets from the balcony...Sensational!

We stayed 3 nights in the Beach House on the top level. Ideal for a couple. We spent a lot of time on the balcony overlooking the water and special sunsets . We were very look after by the owners who were very helpful and Jan drew a wonderful walking map for us.

My partner and I stayed overnight on the drive from Brissie to Airlie Beach. It's a beautiful stopover, quiet and peaceful with a great view of the sunset over the ocean. The cool ocean breeze and fresh air was invigorating, and there is a beach just across the road for relaxing in the sun. Service on arrival was warm and welcoming and the place was clean and well kept. Made use of the BBQ for dinner and enjoyed a steak and a wine on the balcony. 5/5, we will be back for a longer stay in the future.

Thank you Jan and David for creating The Treehouse; the perfect retreat for two. Private, very comfortable and views to die for. A very warm welcome from on-site managers Deb and Dave made it a perfect few days.

My wife and I spent 3 nights at Beach Shacks as a getaway and loved every minute of it. I’d stayed there once before but she hadn’t and is still commenting how much she loved the accommodation. The ‘Escape’ villa was perfect. It was clean with a great covered deck with BBQ and an awesome view. Dave the manager was very friendly and extremely helpful. It is literally next door to the pub which was also a great spot to chill out. We will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer stay.

From the time we arrived and was met by Deb, the experience of the “Shacks” was all I expected and much more. Our Shack was the Lighthouse on the second level with a view over the ocean. Wonderful accomodation and a home away from home. Great base for exploring 1770 and Agnes Water, great butcher in Agnes Water for the BBQ....fully recommend if your up that way.

Amazing view, wonderful service from David. Room was extremely clean and well appointed. Located next door to the pub which is very quiet but convenient for dinner although limited menu. Lovely boardwalk along the front foreshore from camp ground around to marina where we had a great breakfast - also with fabulous service.
