This was our first visit to Hamilton Island and I am sure it won’t be our last. We took advantage of the early morning $150 Virgin Australia direct flight from Melbourne to Hamilton Island and we were swimming by lunchtime. We stayed 10 days which allowed us to totally unwind. Yet there was as much or as little as you wanted to do. A day trip to the outer reef, catamaraning at Catseye Beach, Go Carting and beaching it, and suddenly our holiday was over. Shorelines 20 is great family accomodation. It is spacious, well appointed, clean and easy to get to. From the moment we landed at Hamilton Island, our valet was there with our unit’s golf buggy that we had full use of during the stay. This allowed us to see all parts of the island at our own leisure. The views from Shorelines 20 are stunning morning or night. Access to the Shorelines pool is 20 steps from the unit. Access to the Edge pool is a short 30 metre walk down the hill. The Shorelines complex is so beautifully kept in such a quiet, family friendly environment both during the day and at night. It is so peaceful and people respect each other’s space and privacy. The Shorelines 20 unit is a corner unit and the unit and balconies are bathed in so much natural light. Also Shorelines 20 is close to the bottom of the hill and the driveway which means that golf buggies from the complex are not whizzing past your door all the time. These are some of the advantages of Shorelines 20 over the other units in the complex. The great thing about Shorelines 20 is that although you are not staying at the main resort, you are able to use all the facilities and restaurants. As such you are away from all the Hamilton Island “hustle and bustle” , but can choose to use the resort facilities when you want to. It is the best of both worlds! I understand that a full scale supermarket will open on the island mid-2017. This will be even better for families like ours who then won’t have to rely on ordering groceries from the mainland. We will be back for another holiday at Shorelines 20 in the near future.
