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.

Property's Favourite Review
I stayed with my elderly parents so was prepared for a challenge but the owner was helpful and worked with me re access etc. we stayed in the 2nd from the top so not too many stairs for them and the view and ambiance were worth it. The cabins are really open and unique but comfortable and everything has been thought of. There were no bugs at the time we were there but I did wonder about summer. A great experience for us all!

The 1770 beach shacks far exceeded our expectations. The location was fantastic and decor beautiful. Everything was provided and we felt completely comfortable. My only complaint is that we only stayed one night on our way driving north. I wish we had stayed longer.

I finally made it to 1770 and the Beach Shacks two years later than planned - my first attempt was scuppered by problems with my car. The website for this property doesn’t convey its beauty. I stayed in the treehouse which is the smallest of the “shacks” arranged up the side of a hill. It is about 70 steps up from the lower street level, but there is also parking at the top of the hill with a gentle slope down and then only a few steps up to the door. The view is spectacular including a sunset vista over the bay, though I recommend watching the sunset from beach level. The shack contains a queen size bed with mosquito nets, two couches, a small table, a compact kitchen (microwave, two burner stove top, kettle, toaster but no oven and lots of cooking utensils) and a slightly cramped but perfectly adequate en suite with a shower, toilet and hand basin. There is a barbecue and another small table on the balcony. (Some of the bigger shacks have a hammock on their balcony, but not so for the Treehouse.) There is a cafe near the bottom of the stairs which can be a bit noisy but it doesn’t stay open very late. Otherwise everything is very peaceful apart from the delighted squeal if children in the beach in the daytime or the gentle rumble of waves at night. Definitely worth consideration for your visit to 1770 (the town, not the year!)

Great spot in a terrific location. Nicole was very pleasant greeting us on arrival and set the tone for a very enjoyable stay. The apartment was exactly what has been described by other travellers. Spectacular, Rustic, Unique. The major downside for us was the bed in the main bedroom which rolled into the middle.and made sleeping difficult resulting in my wife moving into the 2nd bedroom during the night.

Beach shacks is the best way to describe this accommodation. It's a comfortable and casual beach shack with great views. The facilities are good with a full kitchen and a BBQ on the balcony. The stairs are potentially daunting, so if you're staying at the bottom two units make sure to park at the front of the property.

A brilliant location with outstanding service and quality accommodation. This a very special experience and it should be on your must stay list. 1770 is a genuine hidden gem with beautiful beaches, stunning views and amazing sunsets over the bay.

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.

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!
