This was our second stay at the anchorage apartments. Both visits have been fantastic- clean facilities, everything in good working order, great buggy.
The only negatives were that the pool in the apartment complex was closed on 5 out of the 6 days we visited. This was disappointing, as it was one of the reasons we had rebooked. We presume it was closed as it was not clean- leaves etc littered the water.
The only other negative is that on one of the nights a cyclone was expected to pass nearby, and we were given little to no information on what to do in such circumstances. It was quite scary. We called our contact for the apartments and they stated that they had no idea, they had only been on the island for 9 months and there had never been a cyclone there in that time. I think the island needs to be better coordinated and organised in distributing information to its guests to ensure safety standards are followed and emergency procedures are known

Had a lovely 4 nights here, the place is better than in the photos, great no hassles service with pick up and drop off and everything you need and more. We were so glad we chose this area on the island and not near catseye beach where it's big and resorty with no personality. It was also nice being on the second level so the views were lovely with a private staircase to this apartment.

We were left waiting at the airport again for about a hour I rang the apartment people , who apologised and sent a girl to pick us up this girl walked around the airport for another 20 minutes with the wrong name on her pick up sign ! Once in our apartment we had to wait another hour or so for our buggy to arrive from the repair shop ! Finaly a beer from the Marrine Tavern about 4 hours from landing ! The food on Hamilton has gone to the Dogs, no efort put in at all , Hamilton has become very complacent with itself the price incress on everything and the amount of brain dead backpackers running the show it's only going to end up as a Japanese tourist spot ! For australians don't waste your money go to indonisia and get some old fashion service ! As for the appartment it's self -- the spa leaked and the kitchen had no knifes making dinner hard to prepare !
Relaxing Island holiday
Left on 09/05/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Robin
Anchorage 10 is on the top floor up a couple of flights of steps & has a great outlook to both sides of the island. As a buggy was included in the rental we could buzz around the island up & down the hills sightseeing. Also, great service to be picked up from the ferry on arrival & taken back on departure. We had taken food with us as advised by other travellers as island prices were expensive although everything was available at the shop on the waterfront
The weather was quite cold & stormy however & so not conducive to swimming in the pool on the property or at the beach.We were unlucky with the weather
The property was modern & clean but the drier was not working and the BBQ was rusty & dirty & not fit to cook on which was a pity. A blind in the bathroom was broken & if it had been a busier time of year we would have in the sights of the next door guests - luckily that property was empty. Otherwise there was everything we expected for a relaxing break with a reasonable quantity of glasses & cutlery & china even though it was a 1 bedroom unit. We would be happy to return in the warmer weather but quite an expensive rental considering the additional cost of getting there & back.

After alot of searching, I finally decided on booking anchorage 10 for my Mum and I.
We were greeted at the airport by a very friendly staff member who provided us with our buggy and gave us a quick tour of the island before escorting us to our apartment. I have never had such a smooth check-in service before. We were provided with an emergency contact number and then left about our business.
The apartment itself was clean and very nicely presented. It is located on the top of the hill so we were very grateful to have the buggy at hand. I must say we had so much fun with the buggy.
I could focus on all the amazing positives of this apartment but when I read reviews I prefer to hear a few negatives to make my decision more definite before booking so here it goes.
I was hoping to self cater, but after two nights of cooking I threw in the towel. The kitchen was lacking alot of utensils. I had only a small almost blunt knife to work with and it did not have a conventional oven. To be fair their was a microwave/oven but I didn't have the patience to figure out how to use it and there is also a bbq provided.
If I'm being really picky the worn couch, few balcony chairs and television could really do with being replaced.
These are my only negatives about anchorage 10.
If I was to visit the Hamilton Islands again I would stay here and would highly recommend it to my friends.
The staff made this place even more special. They couldn't be more helpful. A staff member called us the night before departure to arrange pick up the next morning to the airport. They made the holiday so relaxing and most importantly stress free. Big thanks to you all and hope to return soon.
Comfortable and Cosy

On arrival we were warmly welcomed. The staff member was very helpful and courteous on both arrival and departure. Unit was well located and central. The buggy was a bonus to get around and explore the island. Unit 10 was very comfortable with everything you needed. The Bedroom and bathroom was spacious with a spa bath. Had a fully equipped kitchen. Veranda overlooked the pool. A very friendly cockatoo would visit very evening at happy hour. A very small negative would be that the furniture is out dated but still very functional. We enjoyed our stay at anchorage.Thank you

Very relaxing stay
Left on 05/17/2012 for a stay in April 2012 | Louise Mahar
The service was impeccable. It was great being picked up and dropped off at the airport...we were even given a late check-out without even asking which was fantastic. The service and food at all the eating places was great (and yummy). The accomodation was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The location was lovely...impeccable gardens and greenery...handy to have a buggy to get around so we didnt have to walk up the hill! We found our stay very very relaxing...4 days felt like 8. We found the pools at the resort a must. We had such a fun time that we will definitely be back. Only 1 negative - for the price of the accommodation I would have thought a full oven would have been supplied in the kitchen. Read more
Thank you for your feedback.
I am so pleased to hear you had such a great time.
With the smaller one bedroom properties the kitchens do tend to have the convectional style ovens, in place of the full oven, due to size and layout design.
We hope to welcome you back in the future.

There were a few problems when we arrived, no toilet paper, no plug for the spa, however, these were rectified quickly after a phone call. The apartment was overall quite good but it desperately needed a thorough spring clean.

The property was clean upon entry and very well presented. It was in a private and quiet location and the whole complex was very well maintained. The accomodation was very comfortable and we had no problems with anything at all. It was a great place to stay and I would recommend the anchorage apartments to anyone travelling to Hamilton Island. They are situated at the top of a big hill but a buggy was included so it did not matter at all that it was not an easy walk to town.
it was very relaxing

would recommend anchorage 10 to everyone did find the lounge very uncomfortable and maybe a flat screen tele would have topped it all off not that we had much time to use it. The pool and balcony fews were awsome and Kyle was excellant when the buggy broke down all in all an excellant holiday home away from home.

We had a wonderful time from the moment we were picked up at the airport by the very friendly staff till the moment we left. Accomodation was a lovely, very peacful and quiet spot. The appartment had everything we needed and was very comfortable with a spectacular view. We enjoyed our nightly walks up to watch the sunset and have a cocktail. It was a lot of fun having our own buggy to move around the island and we did a lot of exploring. All in all a wonderful holiday experience on Hamilton Island.

Service was fantastic. Our flight was canceled the night before we were due to leave but they allowed us to have the use of the buggy for the day and stored our luggage for us, despite having new guests arriving that afternoon. They were very accommodating to our needs!
The apartment was amazing, very clean and comfortable. I loved the roaming peacock too.
Was fairly expensive overall, but once taking into consideration the location, inclusion of the golf buggy, and the great staff that are there to help, it was worth every cent!

We were met at the airport and buggied to lovely spacious accommodation. Use of private buggy made it great to get around this Fabulous Island. Highlight of our stay was a beautiful evening Sail., Waiting at the overcrowded Jetstar terminal for our departure was very tiresome.

Lovely apartment, poor House-Keeping prior to stay
Left on 04/07/2011 for a stay in December 2010 | Mel
I could not fault the apartment itself. Lovely location and great apartment. The main problems were due to the room not being ready for us when we arrived and the lack of cleanliness. We could not check in until after 4pm (at least they did allow us to check out late as an apology). Once checked in, the room was not cleaned very well (the towels were still in the dryer, which was still on). The fridge did smell of fish, however I could not blame the cleaner for this, we just had to air it out! The rubbish from the apartment (left by the previous occupants and collected by the cleaner) was left outside and we had to make a phone call to have it collected the following day (by which time it smelt awful) We did also have problems with a neighbour parking in our buggy bay but, once again, there was nothing that could be done with this issue. Our apartment contact was lovely in this instance and drove out to help us with the 'problem buggy'. Good apartment but unfortunately there were a few cleanliness issues which could have been avoided.

We had a fantastic stay! Spacious unit with large balcony, large kitchen and living. Great spa and outdoor pool. It was wonderful having our own golf buggie for the duration of our stay so we could explore the island in our own time and leisure. Airport pickup by friendly locals was great. Recommend to all!

We had problems with our buggy and power. It took nearly a full day for the power problem to be resolved, and as there were no matches we couldn't even boil water for a cuppa. The response was almost like bad luck and no compensation was offered until I complained on arriving home which is a bit late. This place is given 5 stars, but on arrival there was nothing on offer, not even a tea bag!!!

Also, das war das Beste was man haben kann: Sofort w?rden wir in diesem appartment f?r immer wohnen wollen: modern und grosszuegig ausgestattet, traumhafter Blick, australisch unkompliziert und pragmatisch der Service. One-Tree-Hill, Whithaven Beach, Hill Inlet als Ziele um die Ecke oder als Tagesausflug, oder einfach so mitschwingen auf der unglaublich relaxten Wellenl?nge. Einfach eine art von Urlaub wie man es nicht besser haben kann! Dazu der Buggy - es war/ist unbeschreiblich schoen. Und btw: wir sparen jetzt schon fuer das naechste Mal!!

This was the most amasing place to visit. The accomodation was awesome and everyone on the island was so friendly. I highly recommend Hamiltond Island and the anchorage the place to go for that special holiday. Every view was breath taking and the food over the island was like no other. I totally rec going snorkling on the reef. Will blow you away. We will be back
