We booked two condos near the pool. Condos were very nice and views were beautiful. Definitely pay attention to the number of stairs to your condo as there are no elevators. It can become exhausting, especially with luggage and small children. We were there for our wedding and has several other guests staying there as well. Everyone enjoyed their stay....

I'll start with the positive part of my review: Gated community with friendly guards, second story above the waves with a panoramic view of the water, boats, and sports. The two bathrooms with double sinks in both and decent showers helped. The drive from town was short and part of the fun. The weather was ideal. The hillside, Mediterranean-type architecture...

Most units in this property are awesome. We stayed in 1-59 and it was the perfect location. Great views, close to beach, pool, fitness room. I played miniature golf with the kids. It was a bunch of putting greens, no obstacles, but still fun. The tennis courts and croquet court were close by, although we did not partake. We had...

BEWARE – Hamilton Cove Real Estate, the agency rents out and manages the properties in Hamilton Cove is without a doubt the rudest, most unhelpful rental agency I’ve ever dealt with. My parents rented a 4-bedroom home in Hamilton Cove for their 50th Anniversary celebration, an event family members flew in for from around the country. The most expensive rental...

These condos are nestled and stacked into the mountainside. The bright white stucco and natural wood accents with terra cotta- just beautiful! Great amenities also: pool, beach, sand volleyball, gym (with an unbelievable view!) and security. Our only complaint was that the condo we rented wasn't clean enough. I rewashed everything (including all the silverware, dishes, towels) before I felt...

Wonderful views and looks like a Mediterranean villa. Its a strange feeling coming from LA on a boat to such a peaceful place. The cool thing is that all the Villas have golf carts so you can drive into town and see the sights of Avalon, which include zip lining, Kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, eating at numerous good restaurants...

Our one bedroom unit was very well furnished and had a balcony with patio furniture. I was able to watch the sunrise each morning while I had my coffee.This development which broke ground in the 80"s and sold its first units in the 90's is located outside the main city area. It is quiet. Our unit came with a golf...

The Hamilton Cove Villas are a beautifully maintained condo complex just a short ride from downtown Avalon. The villas sit perched on the hillside, and honestly remind me of a Mediterranean resort. I'm pretty sure that every unit has some sort of an ocean view, and some are ocean front, where you can actually hear the waves. There are 1,...

I was very pleased with the unit and the grounds around Hamilton Cove. The guard house is a nice touch and the club house, fitness center, pool and hot tub were all well cared for. If you like tennis 2 lighted courts and a mini golf course but on real grass. We will be back. Note: they were doing construction...
