Our family of four (2 adults; 2 teens) had a remarkable vacation on Catalina, and the foundation of that vacation was our picturesque, serene and well-equipped condo in Hamilton Cove. We absolutely loved our stay! This condo offered spectacular views, a peaceful environment and all the amenities we needed: a heated pool, hot tub, sauna, beach and snorkeling area, tennis and basketball courts, workout facilities, and most importantly, a golf cart to get around and tour the island. We ran out of time to do any barbecuing, but there are grills by the beach too. We took advantage of the many wonderful restaurants in the area; we went to nearly every one that the owners recommended and enjoyed them all! We also went zip lining and parasailing at their recommendation and loved those activities too. We hiked, snorkeled, walked around downtown Avalon, listened to bands, people watched, and golf-carted to different points around the island. There is a comprehensive notebook of information prepared by the owners with so many different activities to consider.
The condo itself was very clean, modern and beautifully accessorized; well organized; equipped with everything we needed (golf cart, tennis rackets, beach towels, coffee, tea, all kitchen items necessary to cook breakfast each morning, bedding, towels, cards, board games and puzzles); and had impeccable instructions on getting around and accessing everything in Hamilton Cove, including the very reliable and strong Wifi (critical as we have two teenagers). Cellular service wasn't available for us at the condo (ATT) so we relied on Wifi, which was no trouble at all. The sleeping arrangements for 4 worked out well by using the pull out couch/bed in the living room in addition to the master bedroom. Oh, and did I mention the spectacular views? We LOVED sitting on the patio enjoying our morning breakfast! There is a newly refurbished Vons very close by with ample parking for the golf carts, so it's easy to do a combo of eating in (breakfast & snacks) and eating out (lunch & dinner).
I can not say enough wonderful things about the condo owners, who provided so much information about what to do and see in Catalina! They were incredibly responsive to our questions. It was evident that they wanted us to fall in love with Catalina and Hamilton Cove the way they have. We all agreed the vacation was wonderful and this unit in Hamilton Cove was absolutely the right place to stay! LOVED IT!
After searching for days for place to stay at Catalina Island, we were ecstatic to come across this condo in Hamilton Cove. The view was spectacular and breath taking. We loved that the condo was just a set of stairs from the street so we did not have to climb or go down a lot of stairs. Further, the furniture were updated including the decors of the unit. The kitchen was equipped with just the right amount of supplies to allow us to cook breakfast and dinner since we wanted to enjoy the view and condo in the evening. Our kids loved the game boards and private beach. There were beach towels, sand toys, and pool toys for our kids to use when they went swimming at the beach and pool. We wished we had more time to enjoy the clubhouse and other amenities of Hamilton Cove such as the tennis courts. We also liked that the unit had a four passenger golf cart for us to use which allowed for us to drive to around Catalina Island and to the beach and pool. A plus is that the condo is close to Descanso Beach Club, Catalina Aerial Adventure Park, and Catalina Zip Line Eco Tour with activities to keep you busy for the entire day. We would recommend this condo and book it again on our next visit to Catalina Island.
