Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Townsville and the unit was in a great location with no "dangerous animals in sight"! It was very well appointed and we (especially the dog) loved the proximity of an I cream parlour. Would love to stay here again ...

Perfect position and apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent six nights in this apartment and thoroughly enjoyed it. Excellent position. Very short stroll to flagged swimming area or rock pool. Lovely walking along the Strand. The apartment itself was spacious,clean and had everything we required for an enjoyable stay. The manager Kylie was quick to respond to all correspondence regarding our stay.

Highly recommend.

Handy courtyard area. Had everything we needed. Safe and secure with electric gate and keypad pedestrian access. Would definitely recommend Hambeluna. Comfy beds and clean.

Just loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hambeluna the location is great the unit was fastidiously clean and with everything you would need for a holiday even beach towels.

Loungeroom is now air conditioned and didn't I need it for a few days.

I can understand how doggies would love it here as I loved watching the doggies walk along the strand in the afternoon...doggie heaven.

Kylie is a pleasure to deal with and thanks Kylie.

Fantastic Location

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hambeluna over the New Year period. The apartment has a magnificent view overlooking The Strand and Magnetic Island. Our children enjoyed splashing about in the pool everyday. It was great that our puppy was able to enjoy a holiday too. The manager, Kylie was quick to assist when a problem arose, for which we are grateful. The only downfall of the apartment is no air conditioning in the lounge room. I look forward to visiting Hambeluna again in the future.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

It was a safe and secure place to stay and the other residents where quiet and always polite. The place itself was fantastic, it had everything you needed and so very clean. The location and view was amazing and you really do not want to go back to reality. Kylie was really good and always got back to you in great time.

Really good place, highly recommend it to anyone. Could use a air conditioner in the lounge but get that you would want to open the doors for the view.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carol, we enjoyed having you as guests. We do get a great ocean breeze though for the times when it's missing, the owners have now installed an air-conditioner to the lounge. We look forward to welcoming you for your next stay.
