About The Retreat
“Alinghi” was designed by award-winning Australian architect James Grose of Bligh Voller Nield, renowned for his environmentally sensitive design.
The luxury holiday beach house is part of the prestigious and exclusive Rocky Point Estate about 6 kms south of Agnes Water / 1770, Queensland. The private holiday accommodation is set in approximately 14 acres of bushland with just 6 homes on it. Access to the estate is restricted and by invitation only.
There are security gates and resident caretakers. The Rocky Point Estate is absolute beachfront and overlooks the stunning Pacific Ocean.
The holiday house facilities are excellent. “Alinghi” and the other 5 houses have their own private beach at Honeymoon Bay. There is a 30m saltwater swimming pool and entertaining cabana with BBQ facilities as well as a mod grass tennis court. There is direct beach access from the cabana.
The holiday home comprises 2 elements – the Main House & the additional private bedroom Pavillion for a couple . Both are situated around a central platform, a huge stone terrace overhanging the ocean. The view is mesmerising and the sound of the crashing waves is almost hypnotic.
The doors in the bedrooms all open up completely so that you are lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean and woken by the spectacular sunrises. The neighbouring beach is not called ‘Sunrise Beach’ for nothing!
Main House Sleeps 10 guests
3 King sized bedrooms , 2 of which have ensuite bathrooms and showers
1 bunk room which sleeps up to 4 children and share a family bathroom
Private Bedroom Pavilion Sleeps 2
King sized bedroom with its own dressing room and ensuite bathroom as well as a fully equipped study.
On arrival, our guests are welcomed personally and introduced to the house , then left alone for the remainder of their holiday . Icy-cold beers and wine are waiting in the fridge. There is a bowl of tropical fruit and a luxury grocery hamper as our gift to you.
If you require us to do some grocery shopping for you, that can be arranged at an extra cost. The Estate is very private – there are resident caretakers, but for the most part you will see nobody. Please ask us for a list of suggested activities in and around Agnes Water and the Town of 1770. We will be happy to advise.
Please note that Alinghi Beach House is NOT SUITABLE for wheelchair access or restricted mobility.

Questions You May Have
Is Alinghi suitable for families with kids?
Absolutely! Alinghi is perfect for both children and adults alike. There are some areas where children do need to be supervised such as the pool and beach but our Caretakers will go through this with you on arrival.
Does the property have baby facilities such as a cot & high chair?
The property does not carry these items as they do vary according to height and weight and age of the child. However they can be hired locally at an extra cost.
Can the Master Bedroom Pavilion be rented on its own?
All cooking and dining facilities are in the Main Pavilion so the Master Bedroom Pavilion can only be rented in conjunction with the Main Pavilion.
Is there a BBQ at the property?
Alinghi does have a gas BBQ but there is also a BBQ and dining/entertaining area at the poolside cabana which is part of the estate facilities.
Does Alinghi have a private pool?
Alinghi does not have a private pool but the Estate does have a fantastic 30 mt saltwater swimming pool by the BBQ cabana, a few mins walk away.
Do guests need to bring linen and other supplies?
The house comes fully equipped with everything you may need including beach towels and tennis racquets. The kitchen has basic pantry cupboard supplies such as tea, coffee, sugar, etc but guests will need to organise their own food supplies.
Can you organise a private chef?
This does depend on availability. Chefs come and go all the time, so it does depend on who is available at the time.
Can Alinghi be booked for special celebrations such as Weddings?
Unfortunately Alinghi cannot be booked for weddings, Hen or Stag celebrations or schoolies breaks.
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.

Trip Advisor Review
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.
Will & Maxine Davidson
Our group had a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing week at alinghi. We loved the large salt water pool (which we almost always had to ourselves), the abundant wild life and the constant views of the ocean (we saw whales too!).
Trip Advisor Review
We had great expectations and we were not disappointed. The experience began with a picture perfect day and a brief introduction on the property from Kelli, more on the help Kelli provided later.
On a number of sites this house has been rated as the being in the top 5 beach houses in the world, this is clearly no idle boast. Our two families just had a week, admittedly we were blessed with sensational weather, in this paradise.
Exquisite part of the world. A beautiful place to hide away from the world and recharge our batteries for the year to come. Thankyou.
What an amazing house! Thanks for allowing us to share this special place. We all had a fabulous time – so relaxing and well taken care of. No doubt we will be back again in the future. Thanks again!!
Just wanted to say – thank you so much!! We had the most fantastic week at alinghi, probably our best ever ‘beach holiday’ – and we’ve had a few!!
Thank you for sharing alinghi with David and I. it has been a wonderful finish to the end of our trip. A beautiful home, wonderful views and magnificent setting – a very special place.

“Alinghi” is located about 6kms south of Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 is just another few kms away. It is 1.5 hours from Bundaberg in the south and about the same distance from Gladstone in the north.
Agnes Water is a small town , but there are two supermarkets, a butcher / fishmonger, two bakeries, a deli, post office and bank, newsagent, and of course the surf shop! There are also several places to eat in both Agnes Water and 1770.
