About the Team at Hamilton Island Luxury Homes

Our team at Hamilton Island Luxury Homes has an in depth knowledge and a passion for the Whitsundays and specifically, Hamilton island – this makes us stand out from the crowd. We have all lived and worked in the stunning Whitsundays. We have viewed every single Hamilton Island property on the website. Many we have even spent a bit of extra time, sat on the balcony with a glass of wine and taken in the stunning Whitsunday water views. It has all been in the name of research!

Our team travel regularly to Hamilton Island to view and and experience all of our listed Hamilton Island accommodation options. It’s a tough job, but it is all so we can give our valued customers our first hand knowledge of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays…

Kristie Kaighin

img-kristieDirector. Creator. Hamilton Island Enthusiast.
Kristie worked in the Melbourne corporate world in Project Management before seeing the light. A passion for travel and a change in lifestyle led her to focus on holidaying and then making the most of the information she gathered! She fell in love with Hamilton Island and decided to make the Whitsundays her new home.

Thus the beginning of Whitsunday Holidays and Hamilton Island Luxury Homes. Kristie and her husband Leigh founded Whitsunday Holidays in 2003. Their reputation quickly grew – that of ‘committed to first class customer service’ and offering a ‘unique luxury product’ in the Whitsundays and in particular, Hamilton Island accommodation.
