Our condo is located in the exclusive, gated Hamilton Cove community. You'll enjoy palm trees and an expansive view of the Pacific Ocean from any room in our condo.

The community also offers a playground, sand volleyball court, 18-hole putting green, tennis courts, croquet lawn, basketball hoop and picnic area for your enjoyment.

We continuously update our place and recently installed flat screen TVs. The balcony is a delightful spot to have breakfast and watch the sunrise. And while the sun sets on the other side of the island, it is still incredible to enjoy the beauty of dusk. Our villa is accessed via five flights of stairs.

Keywords: You'll enjoy a beautifully decorated one bedroom villa with views of the Pacific from every room and the spacious balcony.

About the Owner

We have been enjoying the serene, calmness that is 'Catalina' for several years. We visit as often as is possible when work and life don't get in the way! Beginning at the time we arrive at the boat dock, we feel like we have travelled to a distant island and we shift into island mentality, relaxation and fun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing 236 Hamilton Cove. The property amenities attracted me more than anything compared to hotels in Avalon but I was concerned if it was worth the price. I had no idea the place was so beautiful. Also, the golf cart is a luxury item there and now I know why all the owners have one. Your recommendations were spot on as well.

Again, thank you for sharing this beautiful place.

The price is right!

First off, there are a lot of stairs, no joke. Not for those with trouble with stairs. Secondly, WOW, what a view! If my wife and I can never get to Santorini, at least we have this condo in Hamilton Cove. Even if this condo was in town, I still say the golf cart is nearly a must. Great to really explore the island! Karen was prompt, accommodating, and kept her side of the bargain, no shenanigans. Karen: you might include how you handle the security deposit. Don't remember seeing any info about you holding it. Wasn't a big deal, just did not expect it. A great time, and my wife is already thinking about when we can go back!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! As is customary among most private owners on Catalina Island, the deposit is held for 30 days to ensure there are no unpaid parking tickets that were issued during the stay for parking the golf cart illegally. It does happen. The contract does state the deposit will be held for 30 days.

A lovely condo

Far from the crowds of downtown. Peaceful.
Loved the location. Very comfortable bed and nice golf cart.
It could use a little updating for the price but over all very nice.

Amazing view!

Great unit and the view cannot be beat! Lots of steps to and from unit from the golf cart or pool area but we love working out so this was not a problem. Pool area, jacuzzi, gym and grounds are all very well maintained. Owner Karen is a pleasure to work with and easy to contact. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! We don't mind the stairs either as it affords a fantastic view as well as quietness away from any traffic.

My family decided on a last minute trip to Catalina. We haven't been to Catalina in 24 years so we didn't know what we would encounter. With a lot of research, we decided to stay at the villas. My family arrived, and all we could say was, "WOW!!". Absolutely, Beautiful! The villa and the views were exactly how it was described.

The owner was wonderful! She gave us great information to help guide us around the island. The golf cart is a MUST in getting around the island. The stairs wasn't a big item because most of our family was always walking down the stairs. You'll do more walking around Catalina than doing the stairs so don't let the stairs deter you. If you want the view, you'll need to do some stairs. My recommendation though, is to have the luggage carried to\from the villa. There is a porter service at the pier.
I will absolutely recommend staying here, again and again!

We had a fabulous time on the Island. Staying in this condo was one of the reasons why. The spectacular view from every room took my breath away. Really, it was amazing. The condo had everything we needed to be comfortable and worry free. I was a little bummed at first that there was no wifi, but after the first day, I was able to relax and spend more time enjoying the heated pool, the gym, and most of all, the ocean. The use of the golf cart was great. We loved exploring Catalina from a different vantage point. Thank you so much! We hope to return soon...

Amazing family mini-vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a great way to end our kids' summer vacation! Hamilton Cove was so beautiful and peaceful and relaxing. Our condo was clean and nice and had everything we needed- even toys and pool toys and golf clubs that we didn't even discover until our second day! The kids (7 and 5) slept on the sofa bed, which was comfy due to the nice thick additional foam mattress topper. We swam, played miniature golf, zipped around in our golf cart, walked around the town center, and I even took a nap in our bedroom with the lovely ocean breeze wafting in. What an amazing view. My only (minor) complaint was the cooking utensils and some of the cookware was old and should probably be replaced. Overall, we all had an amazing time. When we left, our 7-year-old daughter begged for us to come back every summer, which I'm happy to do, so I'm about to book our second trip this August!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you and your family had a great time! I'm sorry that you feel the cooking utensils are old. We are constantly upgrading items in the unit. I just bought new pots and pans last Fall. I will look at the other kitchen items.
