Personal attention to clients is the key to our understanding your holiday home requirements. It is our goal to exceed your expectations 100% of the time. Click here to read some of our guests comments. We endeavour to build relationships with our clients to understand what is important. From that understanding we endeavour to find our customers an ideal holiday home right here in paradise. We are by no means new comers to the area. Gavins family started coming to Agnes Water/1770 for holidays over 40 years ago when his father purchased an original shack along the 1770 beachfront in 1965.

There were few if any roads in those days; driving along the mangrove tracks through creeks and flood ways loaded with weeks of supplies of staples became part of the holiday experience. Knowing the fishing would be good and the muddies even better, many a holiday was spent out on the water all the day exploring and playing games; chatting with friends around a fire at night. With no electricity TV or phones, holidays became outdoor adventures.

The years have shown us many changes along the foreshores beaches and tracks as many more visitors come to enjoy their holidays as we have done. Some things will never change however; today we are meeting people who also came to the area for holidays as children.

Like us they want to share something uniquely wonderful with their families and friends.

Please join us; we would love to meet you.
