About Catalina Island Vacation Rentals/www.civr.com

Mel Dinkel and Leslie Baer Dinkel met on non-other than Catalina Island! A few years later, we were married at Descanso Beach (highly recommended!). Catalina holds so many memories for us, and since we are not on the Island all the time, we wanted to create an 'affordable luxury' accommodation where people could make their own memories! Since lots of families come to Catalina, it had to be fun -- thus, 'La Casa Sirena' (The Mermaid House) which includes both Catalina and Mermaid themes. And now, we have too locations: This one at Hamilton Cove which accommodates up to 4, AND La Casa Sirena at Bahia Vista A-05 which accommodates 6!

Our properties had to be romantic for couples, and so, we added a super-comfortable bed, and a barbecue and lighting to take full advantage of the patio where while dining you will enjoy sweeping ocean views. In short, we wanted our properties to be comfortable enough to be our home away from home, and yours too!

Great Anniversary Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary in unit 2-40. It was exactly as represented in the pictures. It is clean, well maintained, bright and cherry, well equiped, and oh the view from the living and bedroom! The golf cart was a great addition, but there is good access to the pool or a romantic stroll down to Avalon if you don't mind walking. The owners are very engaged in the rental process, which makes is a personable experience. Pack light and the stairs won't be a problem.

We Didn't Want to Leave!

  • 5 of 5

I can not express how great of a time my fiancé and I had here. The view is spectacular, and the newly renovated apartment was very comfortable to stay in.

When you first walk into the apartment the first thing you notice is the amazing view overlooking the ocean on the balcony. The bedroom also has a large sliding window which overlooks the ocean so we could watch the sun rise and sun set from our bed. Each morning we would eat breakfast on the patio and watch the sun rise.

My fiancé and I are fairly adventurous, so the island was a great place to be. We went kayaking one day where we were paddling right next to sea lions, and the next day we signed up to go biking. The bike rental company takes you up to the Airport in the sky and they let you bike back down to Avalon, which makes for an easy ride because most of the route is down hill.

Overall, the apartment was clean and spacious. The room had everything we needed. As far as restaurants, we enjoyed the lobster trap and the blue water grill. The lobster trap is more of a sports bar, and the blue water grill is more of a casual dining experience.

Overall, our trip was fantastic and my fiancé and I kept commenting how we wish we didn't have to leave.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! My husband and I, too, were sold on the view and love staying at the property. Sounds like you both are adventurers, and the trip up and bike ride back from Airport in the Sky is a wonderful experience. Lunch there at DC-3 Gifts and Grille is a lot of fun, and if you didn't on this visit, next time try a buffalo burger or one of their famous "Killer Cookies"--a lunch in and of itself! Hope you'll come back for more kayaking and biking, and if you haven't before, maybe try hiking a leg of the TransCatalina Trail. There's LOTS to do on Catalina! Thank you, again, for sharing your experience at La Casa Sirena Hamilton Cove. We appreciate it!

The most visited tourist destination on Catalina Island is the city of Avalon, and La Casa Sirena Hamilton Cove 2-40 is a luxury villa located in a quite, gated community. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the “mainland”, Hamilton Cove is the perfect place to take a break from the demands of daily life. With so many activities to choose from, your visit to Catalina can be adventure-packed or filled with rest and relaxation. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, it’s the ideal place to enjoy ocean air and sunshine.

While in Avalon just a stroll or short drive in your included golf cart from Hamilton Cove, visitors enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, golfing, hiking, biking, shopping, strolling the museum and art galleries, a day at a spa, guided sightseeing tours or renting golf carts to explore the city on their own. You can also zip line, 'SNUBA,' tube, stand-up paddleboard -- or, just lay on the beach!

Avalon’s beachfront is lined with South Beach, Middle Beach and Step Beach—all are conveniently located in the center of town and within easy walking distance of hotels, restaurants, shopping, and land activities.

The Descanso Beach Club, located on your way to Avalon, is another place to enjoy the sun, lounge on the beach, snorkel, kayak, cruise around on stand up paddle board, or swim in the crystal clear water. With new Cabanas and lounge chairs available you get the ultimate in beach relaxation. Restrooms, outdoor showers, dressing rooms and chair/umbrella rentals are available. This private beach also offers a seaside bar and restaurant in Avalon, so you can dine and enjoy your beverage with your feet in the sand. Or, enjoy the private beach at Hamilton Cove!

Another activity is to head outside the city gate to the beautiful interior of Catalina Island. One of the unique guided tours will provide you with history and amazing views of the undeveloped outback of the Island. Or explore the isolated coves, secluded beaches, miles of hiking trails, beautiful plants and native animals that abound just outside of Avalon.
