The first island I am going to share from the WhitSundays is Hamilton Island. This is a private island that the famous people all come and relax. Don't worry they have accommodation for the normal people like us, also. We chose a Hamilton Island Home as our accommodation. They were running a special when I booked, and ended up being a great deal! Our two bedroom house included an amazing view, golf cart, and all non-motorized water sports.
As we got off the plane we were greeted with a man who was holding a sign with our name on it. I am not really sure why, but that always makes me feel a little special. The guys were little excited also. Check out the baggage claim on the island.
Next we were handed the keys to our golf carts, gave them our luggage, and we were off to our house.
We loved our house and the view. We actually cooked at home every night. We could sit on our porch and listen to the live band from the club down at the marina. It was the perfect level of noise. When we went in and shut the doors we couldn't hear it at all, but it was perfect on the porch. We also had many locals love our porch.
Our first night there we rode the golf cart up to "One Tree Hill," and enjoyed the sunset.
This was also one of my favorite places to run to, great view for those killer park bench workouts.
This was a great place to just relax and chill, wifi wasn't even an option at our location. You had to go to the hotel lobby to get on. I loved the idea of getting to unplug, but still could access if needed. At our home they had an event schedule kind of like a cruise itinerary for everyday. You could be as busy or as chill as you want. For those who have been to Seaside, think Seaside, but prettier and nicer when you think of Hamilton Island.
