THE Luxury Yacht Club Villas on Hamilton Island have attracted a lot of attention from investors and homebuyers since the development was completed in January this year.

Twenty-nine of the villas have been sold in the past eight months which gives property general manager Noel Lucas-Martinez an impressive strike-rate.

Mr Lucas-Martinez said that he was pleased with the rate of sales so far, as the remaining six were on the market for both sale and holiday-letting. “I'm very pleased especially when the market is definitely not as active as it has been in previous years,” he said.

The multi-million dollar villas range in size and layout with 22 of the total 35 on the waterfront over looking the Coral Sea.

The villas also come with priority access to Hamilton Island Championship Golf Course, marina berth and concierge.

Owners also get VIP passes to annual events that feature on Hamilton Island.

Mr Lucas-Martinez believes that the success of the villas lay simply in the location and positioning the villas take on the island.

“It's easy to see why people come here and their jaws drop,” he said.

“It's about the best lifestyle in the Great Barrier Reef or Whitsundays.

“Great views are in abundance in the Whitsundays, but to be on the waterfront and on Hamilton Island, that's everything,” he said.
