The Queensland region
Covering roughly half the east coast of Australia, Queensland is known as the Sunshine State and with good reason !!
The Tropic of Capricorn runs through Central Queensland and is responsible for its fabulous weather.
As the locals say-" Beautiful one day, perfect the next!"
Big blue skies with not a cloud in sight, pristine white beaches & rolling surf - Australia at its best.
It's most famous attraction is the Great Barrier Reef but Queensland is equally well-known for its amazing surf beaches, pristine national park and abundant wildlife including kangaroos & wallabies, goannas, turtles, dugongs, dolphins and whales just to name a few.
The Central Coast of Queensland stretches all the way up north past Noosa, Fraser Island and Agnes Water to Rockhampton.
Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 are located on the Tropic of Capricorn - Latitude 23.3.
Agnes Water & 1770 are miles away from the frantic pace of city life but still retain the feel of sleepy fishing towns
Crisp clean air, pristine unspoilt beaches coupled with an unhurried pace of life will remind you of what holidays used to be!
Often considered the last true surf beach before the Great Barrier Reef, Agnes Water is a magnet for surfers from all over, with a couple of good point breaks and numerous beach breaks between the two national parks, Deepwater in the south and Eurimbula in the north.
Surfers pour in from all over every April for the Agnes Water Surfing Festival which is one of the must-do events of the Australian Longboard contest calendar. The less experienced can take private lessons or join a group session at the local surf school.
The area is perfectly positioned for direct access to Lady Musgrave Island which is part of the southern Great Barrier Reef
Summers are hot and winters are warm and dry with temperatures ranging from 20 to 31 degrees Celsius.

Just finished a week staying in Alinghi at 1770. The views were amazing with a private beach below and from the deck we saw whales migrating south.
The pool and tennis court are right on the beach with a fantastic cabana.
We had a group of friends with families staying and the place was perfect.
Thank you for your review of alinghi! We agree the views are absolutely breathtaking...
We are delighted that you & your friends enjoyed staying there with your families and made full use of all the facilities.
You would be very welcome to visit us again in December to watch the turtles nesting or in April-May to see the whales on their way north for the winter!

"You will never want to leave."
If you are looking for relaxation in a beautiful location this is the place for you. The house is both gorgeous and functional with room for the whole family or a group of friends looking to relax. There is a swimming pool as well as a short walk to the beach. We drove to nearby towns for activities and some meals but bought food to take back and prepare in the well equipped kitchen so that we could spend as much time on the balcony because of the most amazing ocean view.
Thank you for your fabulous review of alinghi! We understanding not wanting to leave the property with those amazing views! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you at alinghi again soon!

"Impeccable house, fantastic view, first class holiday"
A spectacularly beautiful house with a mesmerising ocean view which is even seen from the showers in the ensuite bathrooms!
Went to relax and left very much so. In fact we enjoyed it so much that we rarely left the estate.
Very comfy king size beds, an armchair big enough for 2, a tennis court, pool and cabana on the estate and a balcony overlooking the ocean that is perfect for reading and sun-baking.
Thank you for your fantastic review of alinghi Beach House!
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and very much look forward to welcoming you at alinghi again soon.

"Heaven on earth"
What an amazing & absolutely stunning property. The entire house blends into the tree line, equally the way it opens up completely from the inside you imagine you are in a very beautiful tree house. Everything laid out so carefull in terms of floor plan- Feng Shui calm at its best. Wildlife all around us: sea eagles, goannas & wallabies. We thoroughly enjoyed our daily "nature show". We couldn't have asked for a more perfect retreat away from the madness of today's world. Simply stunning.
Thank you for your great review of'alinghi'! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the unique aesthetic of this amazing property. We look forward to welcoming you at 'alinghi' again soon!

"Absolutely Stunning- One of Kind-Nicest beach house I have ever seen"
My husband and I, and our 3 month old baby, stayed here a few weeks ago and were taken aback by this home. Hard to sum it up? Luxury Luxury Luxury retreat combined with exclusive holiday home.
Amazing huge modern- very classy and so many little unique places to sit and have a cup of tea (or a wine). Huge kitchen and open plan living for entertaining, had many a beautiful meal on the balcony. Beautiful views, from nearly every single room in the house. The house can open up so well you really feel like you are 'at one' with nature (in the most 5 star way possible). Very warm during our stay so take some light clothing.
This was the most relaxing destination I have ever stayed at - couldn't recommend it more highly: delicious house, lovely walks, beautiful beaches and great meals at the local "tree" pub restaurant. Plenty to do - as much or as little as we wanted. Fantastic all round - great holiday.
Thank you for taking the time to review 'alinghi'.
We are delighted that you had a wonderful stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
