About the property

Are you ready to step into an island paradise located in Los Angeles county? If so, whether you arrive by air or sea, be prepared to enjoy what has been called “The most charming island get-away in all of North America.”

Mike, the Buffalo overlooks this enchanting home completely renovated to capture the “island vibe.” This home is a spacious 1275 square foot treasure with stunning 180-degree direct ocean views. In the day, you can watch the dolphins, seals, birds and boats while the evening brings the unapparelled view of the southern California coast alit from twenty-three miles across the pacific. Inside the home, vaulted ceilings and open floor plan offer an expansive living space with Ocean Views from three sets of French patio doors. Relax on the 150-inch Sectional Sofa while selecting one of 10,000 movies on hand from Netflix on the massive 65-inch Plasma TV. Read a book from our 'All Things Catalina' library, stream your own music or play what is provided through the blue tooth enabled stereo system. Many choose to BBQ or cook with the ocean breeze while enjoying the professionally decorated unit which incorporates brand top shelf furnishings with rare, antique and indigenous items such as original Catalina Pottery and tiled table.

We have taken great strides to make the home comfortable and hope you enjoy the 500-thread count bedding and Designer Towels. Stainless Steel Appliances accompany fine Marble and updated Faucets and Lighting fixtures throughout the kitchen and both bathrooms. Enjoy the blue Pacific from the game room a game table which has a full selection of board games and Murphy bed. Furnishings and bar-b-que sit under tiled deck on the patio. Washer and Dryer are present inside the unit. This unit along with unit next door unit take up the entire top of building four so you can rent both units for extended family and friends. In exchange for steps up to building four, these units both have elevated vaulted ceilings and amazing sprawling ocean views making the walk up well worth it! Please reference VRBO ID 497962 to view the neighboring unit.

This home is located in exclusive Hamilton Cove which boasts of a beach area, tennis, croquette, putting and tennis courts. Yet, if you are visiting Catalina, we recommend you get take our superior Brand New 2015 Yamaha Limo Cart into town and explore. You will be just minutes from the Descanso Beach Club where you can rent a Cabana or simply enjoy this fully wonderful beach club which offers beach lounge chairs as well as a bar and food. Many folks will hit the beach club after an exciting zip line experience or to simply enjoy an afternoon. We could go on and on about Catalina Island, but we think the Chamber of Commerce said it best in describing our beloved Island, “Catalina Island is a picture-perfect paradise and a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the mainland just 22 miles away. The air is refreshing, the water is clear, the community is casual and friendly, and there’s not one traffic light on the whole Island. From the city of Avalon to the rustic village of Two Harbors, experience the Island for yourself - explore the rugged back country where the buffalo roam, enjoy the most stylish in dining experiences, conquer the rush of thrilling adventures, and relax on the sand with the gentle rhythm of the ocean. When you’re on Island Time, you’re always having the time of your life.”

About Jenny Blaylock

This stunning home is managed by Simplicity Vacation Property Management, but the owners love to come to Catalina Island and partake in the island activities such as snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, etc. BUT they also love to eat! Catalina has some of the best food - be sure to try Big Olaf's ice cream and the Cheese Bread! Enjoy!

Jenny Blaylock purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jenny Blaylock chose Los Angeles area

This unit has been completely remolded and all the furnishings have been purchased very carefully for this home....it shows like a designer model. Our home is very open and comfortable...the way a vacation home should feel. Because it is 1275 square feet, unlike most other two bedrooms that are below 1000 square feet, you have room to unwind when staying with a family.

What makes this condo unique

While staying in Hamilton Cove many guests love to snorkel off our private beach as a family. Father and son can play basketball while Mother and daughter enjoy the play ground or look for sea glass at the beach. Please enjoy the pool and spa and mini golfing as a family. Also, feel free to take advantage of the work-out facilities or just relax on the patio while enjoying the spectacular view. If you want to leave, this unit comes with a really nice golf cart that will take you anywhere you need to go on the island.

Very nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is very nice- better in person than in the photos. There's also a very big walk-in closet off the master bedroom, which we used as a place for our toddler to sleep. Would definitely stay there again.

There are, however, a couple issues with the listing. First, it's nowhere near where the map shows it on VRBO- it's actually on Camino de flores. It also lists a grill/smoker as an amenity- it's definitely not a smoker, in reality a worn out bottom-end gas grill.

Like Santorini, but everyone speaks English

  • 5 of 5

Hamilton Cove is a beautiful complex, and sitting in the middle of it is awe inspiring. The facilities are great, the condo was just what we needed, and the name is accurate: Rancho Relaxo had us super rested and relaxed by the end of our stay.

Beautiful Condo in Avalon

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this beautiful condo in Avalon. The property was gorgeous and the view was amazing. They had everything we needed in the condo, and a golf cart included too! A nice pool and Jacuzzi overlooking the ocean were right down the steps and in walking distance. We went for our son's 9th birthday and he loved the condo too, especially the big buffalo head. :) Thanks for a great stay! Hope to be back soon!
