Overview

About the property

Best Ocean View! Left,Right and Straight! Beautiful 1 bdrm Villa

Say "Aaaaahhhhhhh" as you drop your bags and realize you've arrived in Paradise! Open the Balcony doors and say, "WOW!" as you look down upon Hamilton Cove Beach and the Crystalline Blue Pacific ocean. You are at your Villa, So close, but so much like a Greek Isle(see the pictures).

That is how we felt the first time we came here. being so close to our home,yet feeling so far from it is the unique reason we decided to buy here and share it with others.

At the private,secure Ham Cove villas, you'll feel the comforts of home and you get to use the Golf Cart!!! A huge bonus that offsets some expense of renting one($40/hr in town).And the Kitchen allows you to make your own meals if you choose and makes staying here more enjoyable and affordable in relation to a hotel. You make what you wish of this vacation spot. Relax in the serenity of true beauty or get out,dine, use the Fitness gym, mini golf(putters and balls in condo), play tennis, swim in the pool, take a power walk around the hills or head down to the ocean for all that has to offer. Jump in the cart(or even a short walk) to Descanso Beach for kayaking, SUP, Spa services and Zipline!!! Great bar/restaurant there too!!!

About RICHARD GENTILE

We are a family of 4 with 2 boys( 10 and 12 to date). Live across the Pacific in Long Beach. Born and raised here but never went to Catalina until later in life. Each time I went there, I became more and more entranced by the beauty, relaxation and serenity that IS an Island. And for me, with my folks getting older and MANY responsibilities at home, I'm able to exhale even more with the knowledge that if need-be, I can get home quickly. The ferry is really a No-brainer(just an hour) or get wild and take a 15min. helicopter ride! If you've never been here, you'll realize what I mean the first time you come and want to return. Also, for us, and if you have a pet(s), it's difficult to leave them behind. We pay Petco to care for our dog(expensive) on the rare longer trips we take. That is why we decided to Allow Pets( additional expense) because our Dog is part of our family and this way we don't have to worry.

RICHARD GENTILE purchased this villa in 2014

It's Santa Catalina, Live it up!

  • 4 of 5

Richard is accommodating and accessible, both of which I consider #1 important as a veteran VRBOer. Nothing worse to ruin a vacation than to be "stranded" with no one to call about issues or questions. In fact, Richard also has someone on the island who was also accessible. The view from the balcony can't be beat. There were no other renters on the shared balcony, where each unit has its own space but no partition. Spend a lot of time out there just kickin' it with the scenery. The pads for the chairs seemed a little funky, but comfortable and it would have been nice to have higher chairs and table height to see above the railing, as does a neighbor unit that is seen in the photo to the left of the balcony.The unit comes with its own golf cart to get around, both essential and fun! Would not have rented without it. We were unable to find the passenger seat belt and it is a little beat up but works! The bathroom is a Jack and Jill type in case you have people sleeping on the couch. We were unable to connect our computer or tablet to the internet. A disappointment but our phones connected. How odd. The computer has connected on wifi's all over the US and abroad. There is a modem/router in the unit.The fan in the bedroom is wobbly and noisy but I am not sure you will ever need it there. Look, it is not perfect (the development started 30 years ago) but at the end of the day, it is a winner unit and if you focus on island fun, there are just minor observations about it .That is the only reason could not give it 5 stars. We would return to this unit.

BEAUTIFUL views, Great amenities, Delightful Stay.

  • 4 of 5

Hamilton Cove is delightful, clean and the perfect place to stay while in Catalina. The views are amazing and Richard's unit is conveniently located and the golf cart ROCKED! The amenities of the property were exactly as pictured. Bring your tennis racquets & balls. The pool was delightful, we even walked down to the shoreline and took a polar dive into the ocean! We saw deer each evening as we drove into town for dinner. One evening, we took advantage of the sunset and units outside architecture and had a family photo shoot. The staff at the property were very cordial and the property had security systems in place. Richard is a great host: prompt with his communication, welcoming and accommodating. This is definitely a great host, unit and property to work with.

Hamilton Cove is the best and Rich has an amazing condo there!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time ever and Richard truly was a perfect host. He made us feel welcomed and allowed us to check right in when we arrived on the island, it seriously couldn't have gone any better!!! We loved the bed it was very comfortable and the view you get when you wake up is spectacular. The golf cart worked perfect and was very nice to have included with the rental. All in all we gave it a 10 out of 10 for the experience. Only thing I would say is to remodel the bathtub/shower could use a new tub! But all in all absolutely fantastic.

Thanks again for everything we truly enjoyed ourselves.

Scott and Alyssa

Beautiful, amazing views, perfect for weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the absolute perfect place for our anniversary weekend getaway. It had everything we needed! The views from the balcony were gorgeous, it was the perfect way to wake up each morning. And having the golf cart included was so convenient and made our weekend seamless. We had such a perfect weekend and Catalina is such a beautiful place. We would come back again in a heartbeat!
