An exquisite retreat for guests, with the essence of the Italian Riviera and the Amalfi Coast, this condo is uniquely located on the bluff beneath the blue sky and overlooking the tranquil Pacific Ocean of Catalina Island.
Why rent VILLA SUL MAR? We are on the water, only three steps to front door (not common with other condos), 2 minute walk to beach (whoops! I forgot my sunblock), 3 bedrooms, (two with balconies and view), an additional 400 sq. ft. of patio with lounge chairs, table and umbrella, BBQ, and all of this overlooking the Pacific.
Artist, writer, poet, or vacationer, VILLA SUL MAR offers many amenities to make your stay memorable. Custom furnishings, white carpets and flooring, fully equipped kitchen and laundry room, indoor formal dining area, large kitchen counter for informal snacks, outside patios, and especially - moonlight over the water with the twinkle of the mainland lights in the distance.
Located in a guarded gate community, Hamilton Cove offers the beach, pier, pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, putting green, tennis courts, sand BBQ pits and volleyball. A 10 minute walk (or 5 minute cart ride) to Descanso Beach offers more fun— kayaking, Catalina climbing wall, zip lining, restaurants, shopping, cabanas, and all water sports rentals.
This VILLA was purchased for, and is still used by the owners, as a year round home, so everything is maintained at the highest levels.
With over 2000 sq. ft. of spacious accommodations, a new 6 passenger cart is included in rental with an option to rent another 4 passenger cart from the owner for an additional fee.
So sorry, sweet pets and smokers not allowed. Please note that there is a $150 or $200 cleaning fee based upon total occupancy that is due upon check out and payable directly to the housekeeper by cash or check. Check in is 3PM and check out is 11AM.

The unit is huge and has unparalleled views. It needs some TLC. There were several missing light bulbs, the blinds needed restringing. Our towels were found in the washer and some in the dryer. Several had blue stains on them. The chintz chairs and couch need to be updated. I spoke with the maid and she said she had had an emergency and her cousin stepped in at the last minute. The kitchen had only 4 wine glasses for our group of 7 seventy year olds. However the condo was spacious and had beautiful furnishings. We had a great time. They need to have an itemized list of what is in the unit like so many other VRBO places we have stayed.
Better than the pictures for sure! It was a perfect stay for my family of 4 and my sisters family of 4. Came here for a 50th birthday and we'll definitely be back! Kids ranged from 11 years old to 16 and there was plenty of room for all to escape. While my sister was in the kitchen she was still part of the activity because it's such a nice open floor plan! Some watched TV, others played board games, others relaxed in their room after a hot tub dip with French Doors opening up to the veranda! Best thing...4 living spaces have French doors. Golf cart was great....but only seated 6. Worked out because we brought bikes! Went to Vons to get groceries! They had tennis rackets so played that as well! Relaxing Stay!
This unit is large and spacious, and it's in a beautiful spot. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
For various reasons, we had had to postpone our trip twice, but the owners showed us the utmost in flexibility and let us change our dates. We very much appreciate both the process and the outcome of our discussions by email with them.
A couple of suggestions: First, it would be helpful to have information in the unit about the location of the gasoline station to refill the golf cart. Also it would be helpful to include the station's hours. This would allow guests to better plan when and how they'd go to buy gas.
Second, a couple of extra items would have helped us: a few more drinking glasses, other than wine glasses, and some light bulbs bright enough for reading. At night we're readers, not TV watchers.
But the bottom line is that this unit is beautiful, comfortable, and managed in a super helpful way to accommodate the needs of guests. Many thanks for a great time.
The whole group loved our stay here
Nearly perfect in every way. As another traveler noted, there are a few minor issues, but nothing that takes away from the overall comfort and location. The views from every room, priceless!!
