Four of us stayed in Frangipani 101 apartment in March for 4 days. This is great apartment, clean, well maintained, and located very conveniently to the Catseye Beach and to many restaurants, cafes, etc. From the start (e-mail communications with the owner) everything worked fine: we were receiving prompt responses to all our questions. Booking went smoothly. We also got our deposit back promptly, one week after our return.

The ocean view from the balcony and master bedroom is outstanding, this the best part of the apartment. The buggy inclusion is absolutely great! Hamilton Island is pretty hilly, buggy assigned to our unit made our movements around the Island very easy. Check-in and Check-out were quick and easy; we were met and delivered back to airport by Jake.

Kitchen was well stocked with all dishes, utensils, cups, glasses, pots, etc and also some necessities like: sugar, tea, salt,soy sauce, etc., KFee coffee machine with two types of capsule. Washing machine and dryer were very welcomed additions.
We could not swim in the ocean because of the stingers, but there is pool for Frangipani building and even better public pool on Catseye Beach, very close.

One thing that we missed a lot was Internet. Our US phone was not working in Australia, our way to stay in touch with home was Skype, e-mail, etc, that were not available for us for all 4 days. Internet use is very limited on Hamilton Island; we could not find it even in cafes or restaurants. At least local phone was available in the apartment for making local reservations, etc

We did Fly by Helicopter to Reefworld platform and Cruise back by catamaran tour. It was great! We also did full day trip to Whitsunday Islands including Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet & walk to Outlook – also very good even with not so good weather! Don’t miss 10$ cocktails during sunset in One Tree Hill. Coca Chu restaurant was great for dinner or lunch.

To summarize: Great, clean, well-maintained apartment, well stocked. Starting to show it’s age a bit. Apartment is in excellent location, with buggy close to everything. Easy communication with owner of the property. Quick and easy check-in and check-out. A bit expensive, but ok value for Hamilton Island. A lot of things to do in the area.
We would stay here again and definitely would recommend this place.

We loved Hamilton Island and we were very happy with our accom choice. The apartment is located in a quiet area opposite the beach. The views, from the big balcony and main bedroom are amazing. Very clean, comfortable, spacious with really thoughtful extras such as board games, buckets and spades, coffee machine and supply of pods, and basic supplies like olive oil. Golf cart supplied which is such a great way to get around the island. We will definitely be back!

“Great view, modern and luxury touches”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Frangipani 101 is a very nice apartment with great views over the beach. Well located just a short walk down to the main beach, or take the supplied buggy if travelling further.

The unit is spacious with two bedrooms, one king bed, the other room with two singles plus a third roll away bed. Two bathrooms, full laundry, two TV's, both indoor and outdoor tables with six chairs provide all the needed family infrastructure.

The buggy inclusion really is ideal for families with small kids, but that said we walked more than half the time as it's a nice stroll up the beach.

Cooking facilities are good with a good range of implements, cooking dishes and crockery. We used the BBQ frequently, which works well and had spare bottle.

There is a convection microwave, which worked ok for pizza, but no oven so best go out for chips if that's your thing.

Luxury touches include a KFee coffee machine and two types of capsule, shampoo conditioner and bodywash and nice soaps. The furnishings are modern and the art inclusions make this a very stylishly decorated apartment. Recommended.
