Vacation Rental Summary
The apartment 1882 was really beautiful and the view was amazing. It was very easy and we loved the golf cart. The toaster situation was a little frustrating. Neither toaster worked. The location and the beautiful deck were wonderful.
The rental was excellent. The view was great - the swimming pool was refreshing, two Tv's - first class in every respect, but the icing on the cake was the free use of the golf cart. I can't imagine a vacation without the use of a golf cart on Catalina. My only complaint is the extensive use of 30 minute and one hour parking limits. It smacks of a fund raising tourist trap and was extremely irritating, almost to the point of vowing to never return for another Catalina vacation. All of the tours we went on were at least an hour or more in duration, plus they want you to check in 15-30 minutes early, plus the 15 minutes or so to walk from the parking spot to the departure point. As a result, you are in violation of the parking limit the minute you park the cart. My wife and I are both handicapped, but we could not use the very few handicap spaces because we had no proof with us of our handicap status (we have California handicap plates on our car at home). Fortunately, our rental agency agree to take care of the unreasonable $38.00 citation, which really eased the pain. If Catalina officals really want to improve the tourists impression of the 'Catalina Experience', eliminate those bandit parking limits - or at least, make them a reasonable 2 hours or more. I overheard numerous complaints about this during the 5 days we were there. Driving the golf cart around town was the most fun that we and the kids had, so why would you want to just park it for an extended period of time? There is no justification for a parking limit on Catalina except to raise money for the city, which every tourist recognizes. It really dimishes your image as the 'go to' vacation place. And if you really, absolutely require this revenue source, make it a reasonable $5 or $10 - not a vacation spoiling $38!
While planning a visit with our daughter and her fiance in la we decided to include a long holiday weekend at Catalina Island. The rental process was a breeze. Everything was done on-line. Once we arrived, we walked a few blocks from the ferry and picked up the keys to the property. It took less time than registering at a hotel. We rented a 1 bedroom 2 bath condo at Hamilton Coves. This worked well as there was a bedroom/bath on a lower level. The upper level had the kitchen,living area w/sofa bed, bathroom, and terrace with bbq. Each floor had a separate entrance adding privacy for both couples. The location was perfect...walking distance to the pool, spa, beach and sporting activities such as tennis, croquet, and an 18 hole putting green. A golf cart was included which provided transportation to avalon and Descano Beach - 1-2 miles from the condo. Beautiful area with many deer. I would have given a 5 star rating but the couple on the main floor said the sofa bed was so uncomfortable that they ended up sleeping on the floor. We definately plan on returning.
Thanks for your response. We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. The comments regarding the sofa bed were shared with the owner and they have replaced the mattress.
Please come back and see us soon.
The couch bed was horrible, it was like laying on metal springs. There should be a game to for kids/teens such as pool or ping ping commissioners how off path this site is. On a positive, great view. ohh lastly workea should work after 8 a.m. and not earlier for a vacation they were too loud for the guests.
Thanks for your response. The owners have replaced the sofa sleeper mattress with one that is thicker and much more comfortable.
Regarding the work being done that he scheduled thru the association. And we have been in contact with them to discuss when they do need to do any repairs to communicate this with us. Doing this will hopefully minimize any disruption of your time with us.
This is a very clean rental unit with gorgeous views and a great location. The stairs are a bit of a hindrance but all units in Hamilton Cove have stairs, plenty of them. The golf cart was a pretty stripped down model and I didn't really appreciate having to fill it up at a station a half hour away. This unit is listed as sleeping four comfortably and that is actually a half-lie: the pull out bed was extremely uncomfortable and our guests ended up sleeping on the floor instead. If they're going to say it sleeps four they need to upgrade the mattress!
The comment regarding the sofa sleeper were shared with the owner and they have replaced the mattress. Also not all of our units have as many exterior stairs. We have put the number of stairs at the bottom of the property page.
It is our hope that they main road to the gas station will be open soon so you will not have to drive as far to fill up your golf cart.
Please come back for a visit soon.
The unit was nice; could use a few upgrades. The fold out couch mattress definately needs to be replaced...not great for one; extremely uncomfortable for two. Good location and view.
Well maintained condo - having a golf cart included is a real plus. Easy check in and check out.
