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). This Condo has Air Conditioning! Only 2 others in Ham Cove do. It gets HOT in summer, fans don't cut it!

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!!!

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.

We had a great time! I was completely happy with everything except the barbeque. It is a single burner on a propane tank. Other than that I have only good things to say about the property...

The view was the best part of the rental. We had many issues with this unit and considering the cost of the rental , I guess we expected too much.

First, if you have issues with STAIRS stay away from Hamilton Cove. (Unless you rent a unit on the top of the resort.) Every building (except the newest one) does not have an elevator and you can only get to the unit by stairs. And since we had never been there, and I have issues with my feet, it made our stay extremely difficult. I think there were about 70 stairs to the unit. And dragging luggage up and down was difficult.

The unit itself is extremely dated. There are no dressers to put your clothes in. There is no A/C ( which we did not need), the casement windows were broken, the cabinet doors in the kitchen beneath the kitchen sink were hanging off the hinges. The ceiling fan in the bedroom did not work. There was hair all over the floor in the bedroom and the bathroom. The white bathroom rugs were actually black. The bathtub was black as well and needed to be replaced or reglazed. We feel the golf cart that is pictured in the ad is not the golf cart we were given.

Though the owner, Richard, was quick to answer our questions, when we got there and had issues he pawned us off on his assistant. Veronica tried to help us and did come the following day to fix the washer / dryer and to change the tires and the oil on the golf cart. We felt very unsafe with the golf cart on day one and what she did helped .

We discussed our issues with Veronica and she said she would talk to Richard and we never heard back from her.

If we were to ever go back we would go through HAMILTON COVE RENTALS . They will find you the unit that works best for you.

THE VIEW was great. Not crazy about the balcony which was a communal balcony . There was no privacy at all.

This was our first experience using VRBO and sad to say were extremely disappointed. We know many people that have had a great experience, but not us. Not sure we are ready to try this again.

Owner's Response: My first response in3 years. This guest told me early on that he had diabetic foot pain. I have a brother that died from diabetes complications. I would never deceive him or anybody.but apparently it was too uncomfortable. He then decided to Go Off on any little matter that bothered him. For one, the luggage he carried, even though he stayed 2 nights was for a 2 week vaca and very heavy as a result. The cart is more than fine and the one pictured. He felt "Unsafe" because the tread on one of the tires was low...My asst changed the tire to accommodate him. The Ceiling fan was working, He couldn't find the switch...I labeled it for future guests just in case... There is a Brand New 55" 4K TV, Brand New Eurolounge sofa sleeper. There was a cabinet that loosened in Kitchen, I fixed it. Also in May, the bathtub was reglazed. There were NO "black" rugs! I encourage you to view all the other reviews. We do pay attention and improve legitimate concerns...Even though no AC was advertised before, I decided to put a portable AC in villa for this summer. Only 1 other unit in Ham cove has AC. Also, the steps are necessary for the view. A condo with no or few steps faces AWAY from the ocean! True though that if you have mobility issues, maybe Ham Cove is not for you. And Ham cove real estate he recommended, I've used, the rental cart broke down, I was left with nothing, no help and they withheld my deposit for 3 months as if it was my fault and found wiring to the cart battery was fried Do NOT use them...No early checkin, no late checkout, No flexibility.....Sorry for the pain this guest experienced, but he shouldn't take it out on our villa.It is 46 halfsteps to the Villa NOT 70 by the way...

Incredible view and easy access

  • 4 of 5

What a remarkable condo in Hamilton Cove. Our host has stocked the home with many items you may have forgotten or could not pack! The view is spectacular. While the condo is not new, you can tell it has been well LOVED! Clean and comfortable, we enjoyed our meals overlooking the cove. The fact that this condo comes complete with a Golf Cart to use was the icing on the cake! We were able to explore the island without rushing, and also upon our departure, our host urged us to relax and take our time. Seriously friendly and accommodating hosts!!

clean, neat, kitchen was stocked, views were amazing, and the bed pulls you in. Great place!

  • 5 of 5

It’s was a great trip! The only thing I could say that might have made it better was if we weren’t woken every morning by people hammering upstairs. Everyday of our trip we were woken up at 8:30am by construction/ hammering upstairs. That was the only thing I can think of that would of made it more enjoyable, besides that...the trip was extremely relaxing and memorable.
