We had a wonderful time on the island. The town home was nice and spacious. It was wonderful to watch the sun rise over the ocean. It is unique to drive around the island on the golf carts assigned to each unit, however our unit was gas powered and rather slow. It would be a great improvement to have electric...

So no doubt this place is amazing. Look up Santorini and it reminds of that place. The view was excellent. I got up every morning to watch the sunrise before my jog. It was perfect. The downfalls: not kept up well, window handles were falling off, the sheets smelled of mildew, half filled golf cart, etc. So while the locations...

Hello, thank you for your review. There are several companies that rent villas out in Hamilton Cove and since you didn't specify the villa number, we cannot identify if you rented through us, Catalina Island Vacation Rentals. Nonetheless, we hope you will give Catalina Island Vacation Rentals an opportunity the next time you decide to visit the Island again.

My 3rd visit to Hamilton cove we stayed in unit 17-79. The only 3 bedroom w/ 3 bathrooms. The views are amazing from all units but this unit is not well cared for. We had a broken toilet, ants everywhere, dirty kitchen, poorly stocked kitchen - one wine glass (seriously?!) And only 3 coffee cups. I expect more at $650...

We went to Avalon for a wedding and we stayed in condo 1343. This is a 3 bedroom 2 bath condo with a big deck and a front door that is tucked away from the main steps. This is a private secure facility with a 24 hour manned gate access. We felt very comfortable during our stay. It is also...

Thank you for your review of Hamilton Cove Villas. It sounds like you did not rent your villa through Catalina Island Vacation Rentals (CIVR). All of Hamilton Cove is spectacular and most properties have amazing views as you've described. The difference with CIVR is that we DO accept credit cards and you will not have to wait for your deposit...

I am a frequent visitor of Catalina Island. It is one of my favorite places to get away for a couple days. This was the first time we stayed at Hamilton Cove - building 1-68. First, make sure you read the list of amenities very closely! I just skimmed them and when I saw "internet access" I kept going down...

Catalina reminds me of old Hawaii. They have made a conscious effort to limit development, therefore the town is quaint and not overly crowded. Hamilton Cove is a large group of condos that remind you of houses on Santorini. They are all white with red tile roofs. Cars (in general) are not allowed on the island, everyone uses golf carts....

Hello and thank you for your review. We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay in Hamilton Cove. The Hamilton Cove community does have many stairs. Our reservation specialists at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals (CIVR) make it a point to inform guests of the number of stairs for each villa and this information is always listed on our website at...

Our stay at the Hamilton Cove Villas was amazing. The views were just awesome. The only negative was no internet and virtually no cell phone coverage. Beware, there are a lot of stairs. Only a few of the villa's had an elevator. l would definitely go back.
