“Dated and Dirty but Lovely View”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Let's start with the good. The view of Catseye beach is lovely. We enjoyed eating our breakfast on the large patio every morning of our six day stay. The condo is roomy and well equipped. The golf buggy is a necessity for an island stay. We could zip over to the marina for a coffee whenever we wanted (about a 12 minute walk if you wanted to take a stroll) or take in the gorgeous views. The master bed was okay but a little too firm. We also felt that the onsite property manager (Dean and Kallum) and Hamilton Island Holidays was fantastic.

Now the bad. The property is dated and dirty. There were cobwebs and dead bugs stuck to the ceiling in the kitchen (we have photos). The dryer didn't have a knob because apparently they were ordering a new one from the last guest (how does that help us?) The property has such potential to be amazing and I would suggest to the owners that you give it a deep clean (grime in corners, cobwebs, the floors and shower were dirty with hair and sand), replace the microwave and couch (we had to put a blanket over it because it was dirty and covered in hair), paint and update the unit and PLEASE buy a proper BBQ (the one provided is shocking). And proper cookware (the frying pan is terrible). Also, you must not keep cleaning products in the same cupboard and next to the tea/sugar/coffee. And the bugs. Oh my. These tiny little ants inundated us for six days (and no, we kept no food out). They were in the kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

I know it sounds like we are being critical because there are many happy with the property, upon reading the reviews. We just weren't one of them. We will return to Hamilton Island but will not stay at Hibiscus 107.
