We got to Agnes Water at lunchtime and called straight into Tourist information and asked about self catering accomodation . We were given some pamphlets on about 6-8 places here and in 1770, the next resort up the coast about 5 Kilometres.
Our plan this time was to look at the room first and then when we had viewed a selection of places, make a decision which one we’d go for. So we started with Agnes Waters Beach Club who could do a 4 night stay for $600 but, didn’t have a spare room on Tuesday evening.
We then went to Agnes Water Beach Caravan Park who offered a two bedroom unit beach front for $600 ( pay for three get fourth Free) or Breakers, a sort of canvas cabin on stilts from $150 per night (4th free). However Jaki didn’t like the feel of the site and felt it was a bit too far from the town centre, shops, bars and restaurants.
Next was Sandcastles who offered a huge Studio with a queen bed and a single or a huge one bed Villa which was $150 per night.
We also drove into 1770 and checked out a few more places which were fully booked.
So as the prices were almost identical we agreed on Sandcastles as it had a pool and WiFi.
Unfortunately when we got back they had let the Villa and only had a 3 Bed Villa at $300 per night left.
So we decided to take a room for one night at the Beach Club, only to find that their single night tariff was $250.
Moving on we went back to the Caravan site and took the twin bed villa.
One of the staff suggested we head up to the Headland at 1770 where you can watch the sunset on the left and the moon rise on your right. Tonight would be especially impressive as it’s a full moon. She told us the sunset was 1820 so we got there at 1800 just in time to have missed it.
Not to worry the full moon rising out of the watery horizon would be spectacular. Except it came over very cloudy so we didn’t see the Cheesy little rascal.
We set off back to Agnes to fill our boots on fresh fish and beer only to find all the restaurants and bars close at 1930. Just as we got there,
So as we haven’t shopped yet we are forced to eat toast and peanut butter washed down with a nice cup of tea.
This trip isn’t turning out as expected!
