Vacation Rental Summary
We love the unit. Lots of stairs so not for everyone. But we loved it
All of the villas at Hamilton Cove are awesome and all view the wonderful pacific ocean and you can see the distant Ca mainland coast on clear days :) This is a smaller villa which is fine but I like the larger one bedrooms that have a washer/dryer inside the unit and a separate tub/shower set up. All of that was just fine but one thing is worth sharing with travelers. The bathroom is fairly dark. I mean you can see but the lighting for the vanity mirror is extremely dim. I couldn't see well enough so put on light make-up and my husband could not see well enough to shave closely. Additional or brighter lighting would be a great improvement for the vanity mirror in the bathroom. Note: 70 stairs from the golf cart parking spot to the villa - no elevator. Other than that they gave us tons of towels, the golf cart was nice and quick, the champion 18 hole putting course was awesome as usual. We will be staying at Hamilton Cove again and again but not at this villa again.
We spent another great July 4th at Hamilton Cove. You don't have to deal with the crowds and you get a golf cart and pool. This time our unit had a grill, so we didn't even have to pay for the overpriced food in town, except for a lunch at the fabulous Bluewater Grill. We also got to see the fireworks from one of the best spots at the top of the hill over Hamilton Cove!
From the time we arrived it was perfect! My husband and I were celebrating our 24th wedding anniversary and had never been to Catalina. We arrived early, no problem, they had the villa ready. The gal at the front desk called us a cab to get us to the villa from the rental office, as well as called in dinner reservations for us with window seats at Steve's Steakhouse. Denni, the manager, greeted us as we were returning from having lunch on our first day there, wishing us a Happy anniversary and made sure everything was to our liking. Very personal touch! Beautiful ocean view from the master bedroom and living area. The patio, overlooking the ocean and pool, was wonderful to sit and relax, play board games and have cocktails. There was a full kitchen and grill on the patio. The use of the golf cart was the greatest, we truly saw everything there was to see in avalon via the golf cart! The market had everything we needed for our stay, but we mostly ate out. Along with Steve's steakhouse, we went to the Pancake Cottage and antonio's Pizzeria and they were all fabulous! We were surprised that everything pretty much cost the same as it did at home. We had a wonderful 2 day getaway! Thank you Civr! Definitely have recommended you to all of our friends!
The place was very tastefully decorated and well appointed. The view and ocean sounds from our room was unparalleled. We never shut the doors to the patio until we went home. We made use of the pool and spa, just below us, and found tennis rackets should we want to go to the courts. We ate breakfast every morning at the patio table in the picture and watched the cruise ships come to port. There are a few flights of stairs, but they get you to one of the best views in Hamilton Cove. Brush up on golf cart driving before you go, that takes a little getting used to.
We have stayed in this wonderful villa on our 2 trips to Catalina in October for JazzTrax festival, scuba diving and sea kayaking. The only reason I say "Probably recommend", it that the villa is now for sale by the owner. They have wonderful artwork and decor, adding tasteful character to their villa. There is all the cooking implements we needed and a gas grill. Hamilton Cove is meticulously maintained. We enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi, tennis and mini golf were fun. Our "neighbor" was catching fish off the dock below! I wish the recycling was more obvious at Hamilton Cove--never found it.
The gorgeous view overlooking the water is definitely the highlight of this villa. We also lived having the complimentary golf cart, so we were able to explore much of the island. The TV and furniture aren't the most modern, but that didn't matter to us. Everything was clean and looked like a nice beach home. We would definitely come back!
We spent a weekend here for our 6th anniversary and loved it! The view of the ocean was great, and it was quiet and peaceful. The pool and hot tub were right below us with great view of the ocean as well. We also enjoyed having the golf cart to zip around town, which was only a short drive away. The rooms were clean and functional, although some things were a little outdated. The only downside was we shared a deck with others. Even though there were "dividers", a chair strategically placed and a small wire fence, there wasn't a lot of privacy. That being said, we didn't mind that much because there weren't many people out there and the neighbors we did meet were nice to chat with, but also let us alone to enjoy our anniversary.
The room was amazing ! The location was beautiful as well. I always stay in avalon and was hesitant to stay in H.C , but I am very satisfied and happy that I tried it. The room was clean, bright and new. The view was stunning. I will be back !
Cudo's to Denni and Phil, Managers at Hamilton Cove. We had a little snaffu with the cleaning crew, after we checked in, but Denni and Phil jumped on it and made sure our issues were resolved before we could get unpacked. The unit was in a perfect location and neatly decorated. We were lucky during our stay to have perfect weather and very little overcast. I was able to watch the sun rise on 3 of our 4 night stay. Having access to the golf cart made the cost of the unit worth every penny. It was fun riding into town and around the island with no added cost. The only problem I can complain about is the added cost of the cab ride from the port. When we arrived on Catalina Island, we had the taxi take us to the downtown office to pick up keys for the condo. The taxi fare doubled because the taxi driver had to wait five minutes for me to run into the office and pick up the keys. I thought I was being gouged by the only cab ride in town. I later complained to the cab company and received a refund for my short wait time at the rental office. No one should have to go through a complaint for this service. I can understand a taxi having a customer on the meter for a long wait, but a simple in and out of 2-5 mins wait should not double the cab fare.
My grand daughter and I escaped to my favorite place in the world for her high school graduation present. The condo was beautiful, the amenities of hot tub, pool, miniature golf and tennis courts were excellent entertainment for us. We were surrounded by so much beauty that the sporadic cell phone connection was hardly noticed. The added Zip Line adventure just down the road was another plus. 4 days was hardly enough to enjoy the ambiance and all the activities. It was an excellent girls get away!
Really enjoyed our stay for two nights! The apartment was super clean and everything was in tip top shape. We really enjoyed running around all over on the golf cart! Considering that the nightly rate included unlimited use of the cart, the pricing was great!
The view from our villa was absolutely breathtaking. It was extremely well equipped with facilities that made you feel completely at home. It was conviniently located near great spots such as Descanso Beach and the amazing avalon bay area. The whole experience was so awesome that we did not want to leave at all!
