We recently stayed at Sandcastles 1770 while visiting Agnes Waters. Our family stayed in beach house no. 16 which is on the second level. The layout of the apartment was excellent for a family or even 3 couples. Very spacious bedrooms and the well laid out living spaces were even more generous. Great to have an internal courtyard area for... More

Stayed here for our wedding - floors were filthy had to wear shoes inside the entire time. Wedding dress was black before I left the room. Staff unfriendly and borderline rude. Would not stay here again.

We enjoyed having nearly all the wedding guests stay here. I am somewhat perplexed about the comments received from Sara, given how far we went out of our way to accommodate all her requests. All guests were given a generous discount and upgrades where possible. All were quite happy when they departed. From booking a 2 bedroom Beach Home, Sara... More

My husband and I had a lovely relaxing time. We stayed in a beach house with its own plunge pool and it was very clean and comfortable. We ate at the restaurant and the staff were very friendly and the food was lovely.

Our experience was going really well until just after 9pm on the first night both of our toilets would not flush, Keeping in mind we where on holiday with our elderly parents who are over from Scotland, this is not a great start to our first day on holidays.

What a ridiculous review title! I am sorry to hear Amanda had such a bad experience, however I would like to set the record straight on a couple of issues. Our flushing water supply is from an underground RAINWATER tank. Due to the prolonged dry spell it went below the pick up level. I received a call at about 9.20pm... More

Thank you for your reveiw. The Beach Homes are 'open plan' pavillion style beach houses, designed to be open, light and airey. The open courtyards are open to the elements and will get wet when it rains, although you can go from room to room under cover. More

Excellent location and very nice rooms. Spacious and airy with a real tropical feel. I loved the courtyard of our apartment which blended indoor and outdoors perfectly. Had an awesome stay and would definitely come back here next time we are in Agnes Water/1770.
