Vacation Rental Summary
A very nice property and well furnished. However, to pay $400.00 per night and not be able to use the wash Machine was ridiculous. Yes there is a water shortage but you would never know it by the increase business at the local laundry mat.
We've stayed in several villas at Hamilton Cove over the years - all very nice - but this one was special. So open and airy, with fabulous views from both terraces (one with a BBQ), and from the bedroom as well. It was clean, comfortable, and decorated so cute, with lots of beachy accents and pictures. The location is perfect too - only a few steps to the front door and a short walk to the pool and fitness center. We can't wait to go back! Just be aware that, even though there's WiFi available, texting and phone calls via cell phones are nearly impossible. Not entirely a bad thing if you're looking for an escape from the "real world," but Santa Catalina Island Company should consider putting up some more cell phone towers on the island.
This trip goes down as one of our best yet. We went for 3 nights for my 30th birthday and it was both my husband's and my first time in Catalina. Staying in Hamilton Cove, in my opinion, is the best because you get out of busy Avalon and have more peace and quiet. Not to mention access to a swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, fitness room, BBQ's, tennis courts, putting green, dock, private pebble beach, and small park areas throughout. Our unit came with a golf cart which made the trip extra fun. We could head into town in the golf cart for a morning coffee at Catalina Coffee & Cookie Co., dinner at Steve's Steakhouse, or laying out at Descanso Beach Club. This condo is nicely decorate and has minimal stairs up to the door. It has 1 private patio with a barbecue and another patio that is shared (but there are plants for more privacy). The unobstructed view is exceptional. Hamilton Cove also feels very safe as you have to go through security to enter. This place is great for families and couples. The only downside is the wireless phone access is minimal to non-existent. However, this could be considered a plus for someone that is wanting to unplug from social media and truly relax. The kitchen is fully stocked. There are also books and games in the unit. Lastly, we highly recommend booking a fishing charter while you are there. We went out for 4 hours with Scotty of Scotty's Sport Fishing and had the time of our lives! Caught 11 yellowtail! My husband is vacuum sealing the meat as I write this. Yum!
The facilities have an Eastern exposure so the sun awakens you to the beautiful ocean sights and sounds. This was a true vacation. No travel - once there. Just relaxation and total connection with nature surrounding you. The site is airy and light with private BBQ, balcony and comfy furniture and bed to luxuriate in. We did nothing but lay about, read books and enjoy the sounds of the surf.
Great location but furnishings not very nice. Really small tv and shower head bad. For what they charge really should upgrade. Much nicer units for same price.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I've shared your thoughts on living room TV size with the owners of the villa. In an effort to conserve our valuable water, we have installed low-flow shower heads, provided by our local water company.
We loved our Hamilton Cove Villa! Great location out of the avalon madness, amazing views from all the rooms, nicely decorated and a golf cart to boot.
