I stayed at Hamilton Island with my husband and friends as part of a visit to Australia. We chose Shorelines 31 as it had two bedrooms with two bathrooms, fantastic views and the facilities we required including laundry and a pool. The apartment was very spacious and modern with all amenities required including the use of a buggy to travel the island.
Prior to arrival I contacted the agent to enquire about transfer from airport, luggage store if the apartment wasn’t available as we had an early flight. I received a quick response informing me we’d be collected at the airport and provided with the buggy key and luggage store. However this wasn’t necessary as the apartment was ready so we were able to move in straight away.
The apartment has access to two pools, the shorelines and edge. My favourite was the edge as it’s a large infinity style with great views over the ocean. The pool can at times get busy but I never had any problems getting a sun bed, although they are plastic and very uncomfortable.
If you have mobility issues then this may not be the apartment or even the island for you as there are lots of steep inclines, stairs. During the day we used the buggy to travel the island however in the evening we would walk to allow us an alcoholic drink. The walk back at night is unlit and steep so not for the faint hearted. There are buses but don’t get that close to the apt. If this isn’t a problem for you then I’d definitely recommend this apartment.
