Vacation Rental Summary
Always great views from Hamilton Cove! This place is small, WIFI needs some help, filled with mirrors on about every wall, about everywhere. The view is panoramic! The golf cart that comes with it is cool. Oh, important to mention that the bed there is not a queen sized bed, its smaller like a full size and being on the main road into HC gets noisy (the only thumbs down on this place). Plus is only two steps! Right outside in the back is a stacked washer & dryer in the villa storage/laundry room (use key to unlock and only for H177). They have a cool IPod/IPhone docking station in there and when the WIFI is going you can dock it and stream 91X (SD Alternative FM station since forever!! YAY :) or you can stream from Rhapsody or other streamers or play music off your device - that was very cool! FYI - Only three people can be comfortable sleeping in this villa. Two on the bed (cramped) and one on the larger couch.
My experience staying in Hamilton Cove Unit 1-77 was an amazing experience! Several friends rented 4 other units within Hamilton Cove and our unit by far was the best in location (no stairs!), floorplan and furnishings! Loved having the golfcart at our disposal 24/7. Had several disappointing experiences w/hotels and restaurants as far as customer service (very poor). However everyone that works for Civr was just 110% when it came to customer service. I am highly recommending to anyone traveling to Catalina whether for 1 night or 7 to skip the hotels and stay at Hamilton Cove! Great Memories made for the weekend of my daughter's wedding!!!
The place was really clean, and well kept up. Everything was as pictured. There was one step to the unit, many other units had several stairs. The complex was close to avalon, but far enough away to have quiet. The pool was far away making that difficult to get to. The golf cart needs some upgrading.
Have stayed at various units over the years. While all have great views some are in better condition than others. This unit was exceptional. Clean and fresh and nicely decorated. Some units are a little cluttered with owners decor, 1-77 was top notch. Streamline and classy! The rates are expensive. I used to stay for weeks at a time, but it has become so costly I was only able to afford 4 nights this trip (7/13). The only complaint was the bed was way too soft, but won't take any stars away since I had no problem sleeping with all the swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, etc ... Also, he stairs in some units can be many, over the years that's not been a problem since I'm fit and athletic. However, if that's a problem for you, one plus for this unit is that there are no stairs from the street. It is in building 1 so if you wanted to walk to the beach or pool you may skip the stairs down and drive golf cart and you're there! Thank you owners for making your unit so beautiful! The one comment I have for Civr (who over all were very friendly) is that the check in time (3pm) and check out time (10 am) were a little tough considering the price. In the past I've been able to check out at noon and in some cases 1pm, even in summer. If the cleaning service was able to function within these hours in the past, don't see why they can't now. Will return, but sadly not as often, due to cost. One note to other old timers to the island. Corporations are taking over the island! Making it more a high end tourist destination rather than the quaint, cozy island I knew. Next thing you know they'll dismantle the miniature golf course and move in a Gelson's. They're also taking over the entire Landing, making it an exclusive, expensive day spa. Let's see how that works out for their economy over all and if we can still afford to go over, or if in the end it will only be for the 1%.
The accommodations were exactly as advertised and absolutely luxurious. The people at Civr went out of their way to be helpful. I cannot overstate how happy we were with the condo.
The unit was clean, equipped and nicely furnished. The view was gorgeous and the service was excellent. I could not have asked for a better experience.
Simply wonderful. This place was a local paradise. The personal beach and fishing dock was clean and not crowded like the center of town was. The personal golf cart made all the difference .The staff was super friendly and very attentive. Our first night we wanted a few more blankets and this guy named Kevin drove out to our villa at 11pm to bring us extra blankets . The manager Denny was also super nice and helpful. My family can't wait to go back.
Staying at Hamilton Cove was great! The Civr's team made my stay easy and wonderful with excellent advice for my time on the island. I arrived on the island, picked up my keys and was taxi'd to my condo. Once inside the views were spectacular and the condo very welcoming. Being a bit outside of downtown avalon was great for me but may be a downside for some. Having a golf cart was a must! The golf cart was a bit older but did the job well. I would have liked a basket or something to put groceries in but it worked out ok. I really enjoyed everything the unit had to offer, it worked out great for my wants and needs. My only complaint was the internet would go out at midnight, everynight and needed to be reset. Could not have been happier with my stay and will definitely be back.
Only a couple of steps, private laundry, incredible views, well maintained. Cart was very convenient to have. Will stay here again. Wireless Internet, dvd, and blu ray players as well. Cable tv.
This unit is well appointed with all the luxuries of home. The views are great. The bed was not good at all, but I understand a brand new queen mattress was on it`S way and should be there as I write this. That would make this unit a 4 1/2 star. A king bed would make this a 5 star.
This was our first stay in Hamilton Cove. The Villa was ready when we arrived in avalon. The vista was a big part of the vacation. The size was perfect for two people,and the unit was well decorated equiped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The only negative I could think of was the golf Cart needs a little work to reduce the emmissions. All in all the unit reflected the pride of ownership you look for in a vacation rental. A big plus was the easy access in and out of Hamilton Cove. We would stay there again when we return to avalon.
The unit was clean and had evrything you will need except a cheese grater. The staff from Catalina Island vacation rentals were great and answered all questions right away. This unit is nicely decorated and has a great view, my wife is still talking about it. The bed is a little firm we perfer a softer type. having a golf cart was great and made getting around easy. It was nice to have washer and dryer the only thing was the cleaning people using it when we wanted to. the weather and water was great. we will be back for sure.
