Vacation Rental Summary
The condo is in the first block of buildings which is great and you have around 3 flights of stairs to go down. The condo has a wonderful view and deck area but the day bed needs a new mattress and there isn't ANY wi-fi. Ok I know some people want to go and go off the grid and I get that but cell service is also very limited on that part of the island so none of my party had cell service at all. The other issue I had is that in order to call out of the area code we had to have an calling card to input the access number into the condo land line because you can't call long distance. All we were trying to do was to call our children in the LA area and give them the condo phone number being that none of had access to our cell phones or data through wi-fi. It's a nice condo but I probably would stay in town as it's a hassle with getting a cab then the connectivity issues.
Hamilton Cove Villa 1-68 can expect us to return to take in the views. The whole front wall is 3 sets of french doors, and a huge view window in the dining area. If you don't want to stare out at the spectacular ocean, then you can glance down to the little rocky cove below you. The condo is awesome: clean, fun, and nicely laid out for sleeping space. As we used it for an inexpensive quick get away we were happy w/the ability to sleep four in a one bedroom unit, and our daughters still each had their own space. There is the twin daybed (which is a trundle if you need it) tucked away in an alcove. And there's also a futon/sofa. The kitchen had everything needed, and more. Downsides: You must carry your suitcases down & back up several flights of stairs, somebody "borrowed ALL the hangers) and left cigarette butts in a potted patio plant. Serious drawback: the Internet and cell phone service was nearly non existent for us At&T users. My husband occasionally got a weak signal, but not I. Our college age daughters were horrified and ended up spending much more time in the charming town of Avalon so as to be connected to the world. I was ok with it, we went there to relax and snorkel, after all. But even the girls were impressed with the condo and the views. It was wonderful to have that cart, couldn't really have stayed there without it. But it also made the villas superior to the hotels. The villas are more attractive, quiet, and as they're gated, more secure than in town. The ride to and from was always enlivened by seeing the shyer Avalon residents, a herd of deer. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling in that lovely private cove. Yes, waters are a little chilly. The trick is to go in waist deep, get out for a few minutes. When you get back in, the part of you that got wet is now just fine with the temp. Works every time. And the snorkeling is lovely. Other than Garibaldi, California's state fish the fish are not as brightly colored as Hawaii's, but the flora and fauna are much more so, and create a magnificent experience. The sheer numbers of fish delighted us. This little cove is a nursery to schools and schools of various fish. Even spotted eagle rays, bat rays, sting rays, a shy leopard shark (harmless w/just sandpapery nubs of teeth to eat small clams). Watched a senorita fish and a small calico bass harass an octopus. Snorkeling brought us to Catalina's Hamilton Cove Villas, and will bring us back.
I stayed here at Hamilton Cove for about 6 months. Its been a good experience. They have the best amenities on the island and all the rental units have carts. Its always quiet and clean. I would encourage anyone staying to call Civr and have Ms. Chay Bailey assist you she is great. Jamie one of their managers is great also. Enjoy!
