Stay on the north east or the west side of HI?

HI all,

Interested in your input on which outlook is "nicer" if possible.

I am down to Northcape 1a, appears to look East NE or Shorelines 36 looking West.

I love the idea of looking at that beautiful azure blue water, just like you see in the postcards, so I am interested in anyone's thoughts as to which side of the island may give us more of that type of outlook.

Does the north east side look into deeper water? Thus giving a deeper blue colour, rather than the azure blue of the coral sea, looking west?

We have booked for mid March for our 20th anniversary.


Many thanks,

Sydney, Australia

I would go for Northcape .. I havent stayed at either but ridden around these areas many times and the last time I visited the island I stood at the top of Northcape apartments and even from the road, felt I could reach out and touch the yachts passing by

They are literally brand new so everything should be in pristine condition .. the view isnt as expansive as from Shoreline as the west view encompasses a larger area but I think with Northcape you are literally on the water and I think it appears much bluer than the other side .. yes the passage is below the apartments and is quite deep

Just my thoughts ..

thanks, the agent yesterday seemed to feel that the photos on the website didn't quite do this unit justice. Either the inside of the apartment, or the view. Have had look at Northcape 2 and 3 and didn't feel that much more convinced.

Interested in all opinions. Many thanks

Have a look at the following websites, they might have better photo's than what your agent has in a brochure.



I am agreeing with Abbey, Northcape looks amazing! They were almost finished when I was up there last.
