About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay1 - 4 nights
Sunbird Gardens is located an easy walk to coffee shops and restaurants and just 300 metre via a rain forest track to the magnificent surf beach of Agnes Water. (This is the most northern surf beach on the east coast). You have the best of both worlds with trips to the Southern Great Barrier Reef leaving daily (weather permitting).
Your spacious one bedroom fully self contained villa is air conditioned and has ceiling fans. Each villa is offset providing you privacy and seclusion. Your own barbecue is on the back deck and your private gazebo is perfect for watching the abundant bird life or listening to the ocean.. The kitchen area is fully equipped with full size fridge, microwave, cooktop, utensils, pans, etc.
Each villa has its own private spa on a louvred deck adjacent to main bedroom.
With only 3 villas in the complex you should only be disturbed by the native birds.
The choices to relax or get active are yours!
A 5 klm drive takes you to the historic town of 1770 where Captain James Cook made his first landing on Queensland soil. This is the step off point to the southern tip of The Great Barrier Reef. Choose to take a day trip to lady Musgrave Island and explore the reef or take the LARC (pink duck boat) to Bustard Head Lighthouse for an informative and historical tour of this landmark in the beautiful, pristine environs of the Bustard Bay.
The climate at Agnes Water/1770 is is a gift to the area. You can swim all year round.
You can explore the national parks located on the northern and southern extremities of Agnes Water and if you enjoy fishing throw a line in to the surf or creeks or book a reef fishing charter with an experienced local operator.
Other activities on offer are sunset kayak tours, SUP (stand up paddle), round of golf, barefoot bowls or book the court for a game of tennis. Perhaps you are happy just to explore the many beaches along this pristine coastline.
Wining and dining
A number of establishments have a courtesy bus service. If you don't want to cook, there are several dining options. Sunbird Gardens is within walking distance of a couple of the local restaurants. There are a number of coffee shops to visit and the fish and chip shop is a popular choice.

I know Sunbird is advertised as a couples' retreat, but I stayed their on my own with my little dog. Such a great place. Everything is exactly as advertised and it's so quiet you are forced to relax! Thanks for having us!
Appreciate you taking the time to review us Eileen. So glad you and Digger enjoyed your time with us at Sunbird Gardens. We hope you can return again.
Excellent home away from home.....
Thank you very much Angie & Phil....
What a wonderful pet friendly home away from home set up you have here.....
Very impressed with how quiet & secluded this little hideaway place is.....
What a wonderful treat to come back to our beautiful accommodation to relax in the spa after our very long trip from Brisbane and then to Gladstone for a surprise visit to see our beautiful family that moved there Easter weekend.....
Thank you so much....and for sure I think we will be back.....
Thank you Jocelyn and I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time catching up with your family. Look forward to your return visit with Bud Bud.
Superb Serenity & Seclusion
This property is nothing short of perfection! Hidden away in lush surroundings, this villa is quiet, private and yet right across the road from the beach! And of course the private spa on the deck is the cherry on this delicious villa!! Highly recommend for anyone needing some RnR ..especially for couples needing some alone time :)
We look forward to your return stay Kiefer. Glad to hear you got a chance to relax and rejuvenate.
Angie makes the whole family feel welcome including the four legged ones!
Thank you Bec for staying with us at Sunbird Gardens. Hopefully you and your 'best friend' can stay longer next time. Cheers Angie
Nicely appointed and easy access to beach
Sunbird Gardens is a set of 3 small villas on the outskirts of Agnes Waters. Each villa is private and has an en-suite spa bath. The villa we stayed in was small but very well equipped with everything you need, including a washing machine and selection of DVDs for when it rains! You can walk to the Agnes Waters town centre and it's about a 5 minute drive to 1770 (which is actually the nicer of the two towns) where you can hire Kayaks, take boat trips etc. Angie and Phil are great hosts and if you are travelling with your furkids, it's fantastic that Sunbird is pet friendly - although note that there is not an enclosed garden and it is close to the main road so you need to keep dogs on a lead outside.
Thank you Al for taking the time to review us. We hope the rest of your trip is relaxing and exciting. Trust you will have fond memories from your time here in Agnes Water/1770.
Extraordinary Break at SunbirdGardens!
We enjoyed very much our stay at SunbirdGardens. The place is equipped with everything we needed. All the appliances worked without faults. The birds are there every day. The managers are very helpful and willing to assist. The place is well maintained and well located. I recommend SunbirdGardens without reservations.
Thank you Louise for taking the time to write a review. We were pleased that Sunbird was everything you had hoped (& more). Congratulations on reaching this milestone. Lovely to have you stay with us.
