Vacation Rental Summary
We stayed here during the JazzTrax smooth jazz festival. The villa is in a large development of owner occupied and rental condos. It looks and feels just like a Mediterranean village. It is about 1.5 miles from town. But i wouldn't think of walking, the hills between Avalon and Hamilton Cove would not be a pleasant hike with or without luggage. Once you are there, the stairs can be a challenge if you are not in good physical shape. The unit is fairly well maintained. A few minor problems may have gone un-repaired in recent months. A couple of switches were loose in the electrical boxes. One plug plate was broken but was immediately replaced when I contacted the property management company, Catalina Island Vacation Rentals (CIVR).The pocket door between the bedroom and closet was not on the track, and couldn't be closed. This also separates the bathroom from the bedroom. The maintenance person looked at it, but it could not be easily repaired during our stay. The unit has an abundance of appliances, cookware and dishes. We stayed a week and did a lot of cooking while on the island. We never needed anything that wasn't' already in the kitchen. The owner was very helpful and truly concerned when I could not open the small safe that held my wallet and a few pieces of jewelry. The only down side to the week was dealing with CIVR. During the booking process and up to actually getting to Catalina, CIVR was great. They answered phone calls on weekends and helped me make decisions on things to do while not enjoying the concerts. Then when I got there I felt as if I was a bother to them. Granted they must have been slammed for the week because most days, the concert was sold out. But even if you are slammed with things to do, when a guest walks through the front door or calls on the phone, they should leave feeling as if they just intruded on your day. But hey everyone has a few bad days once in a while. And being resourceful, I can work around just about anything. I would go again, but would avoid CIVR if I had the option.
Thank you for sharing your experience. I remember the safe issue. I believe the problem was solved with a simple battery replacement. Yes, we are busy during Jazztrax, but that's no excuse for you feeling like you were a bother to us. I will share your concerns with our staff. We DO love helping our guests, and get far more kudos than complaints with regards to our customer service. I do hope you give us another try.
this place is just like it looks in the pics… the view is perfection. Its clean and spacious for a 1 bedroom… a golf cart is a must so its nice that it comes with one.. i would definitely stay here again . we had a great relaxing trip.
The pool at Hamilton Cove was rather sad. 3 old and yellowed umbrellas...for multiple tables. The area hasn't been refurbished in forever. The unit itself was definitely dated and the bathroom fixtures etc., old and shower doors crusty; a closet was overflowing. We love Hamilton Cove - but for the price - the facilities are not up to par. The beach area could also be made more inviting.
Thanks for you comments. The Hamilton Cove Homeowners Association has invested in some updated amenities in the pool area.
Do come back and give us another try.
My husband and two teenage boys visited Catalina Island for the first time and the experience was wonderful! From the time we arrived we were treated very kind from the cab driver which helped us check in and take us to our beautiful villa and everyone on the island. We stayed in Hamilton Cover Villa 2-32 and the room was clean and comfortable expect for the pull out couch sleeper. The view from the balcony was to die for and the weather was beautiful. The washing machine and dryer was very conveniently located right out our front door. The place was well stocked with kitchen utensils to a ipod dock, tv's, fans and towels. Catalina Island is a beautiful and relaxing place to visit I would definitely visit again and stay in Villa 2-32. Hamilton Cove is the place to stay on the Island because of its beauty, serenity, view of the Island and the well kept grounds. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
Thanks for the review. Glad you had a nice time. Sofa sleepers are a difficulty in this business, but we keep trying to keep them operational and comfortable.
The condo was fabulous and OMG what a view! We had everything we needed. It we great to have a golf cart to cruise around with the kids and the property grounds were beautiful! Highly recommended
This unit was a great place to stay for us. It has a terrific view and all the amenities you would expect. My only gripe was the quality of the mattress on the fold-out sofa, but the kids didn't seem to mind. Having a golf cart was very nice to explore places that may be too far on foot. Being a little outside avalon was also very nice -- it can get pretty noisy on the weekends. Hamilton Cove has a pretty strict no-noise policy, and many of the people there have small children that go to bed early. I really enjoyed the peace. Important to note that this is not a good place for anyone who can't hike up several flights of stairs. I would gladly stay here again.
Thanks for your review of your stay.
We'll have maintenance check on the sofa sleeper mattress.
It could be as simple as needing new springs.
Easily the best deal on the island! We had an amazing weekend, the staff was so helpful and friendly. The villa was gorgeous and all the amenities were perfect!
clean, comfortable, well maintained, easy access to pool, gym, road, beach. most of all--away from the "tourist" crowd. quiet
