About Steve Conrad
My name is Jeremy Conrad, my wife, Jessica and I are the owners of this condo. We fell in love with Catalina many years ago when I used to come with my family as a child. So we decided to buy in 2017 to enjoy with our children/family and renters year round.

Jazz Trax weekend getaway
This is a beautiful property with great views and amenities. It is comfortable and beds slept well. Two downfalls. 1. Too many step, but that is what it is. 2. And most important, the property is very rundown. The carpet is old, stained and dirty, the blinds are all bent up, drapes and valances dirty and stained, and kitchen is very greasy and cabinets outdated. Needs a complete paintjob and the property manager needs to learn how to do her job, and the cleaners need to learn how to clean. I would never rent my condo to someone with a broken shelf in the living room, light bulbs out all over and unsafe extension cords and wall plugs. We loved our time in Catalina and the property and location, minus all its deficiencies.
This is a very difficult review for me to leave. I have been visiting Avalon since I was 5 years old and have stayed in numerous units in Hamilton Cove, This unit was extremely disappointing. The carpet was absolutely filthy. In fact, our entire first day of vacation was filled with trying to communicate and solve a disgusting carpet, a patio table that was falling apart and spider webs all over the patio (to the extent that we could not enjoy the limited view!) . The property manager was responsive and did as much as she could, given the condition of the unit. Bottom line, this was the worst unit we have ever rented at Hamilton Cove!
This is a very different review then we usually receive. 17 out the 18 reviews on VRBO gave us either 4 stars or 5 stars, before this ‘unique’ 1 star review. We too have grown up on the island and have stayed at most every hotel and a dozen other condos in the community, and this would be considered well above a standard rental unit on the island. Kitchen and bathrooms have been remodeled, and all furniture, appliances, and 3 TV’s are only 2 years old, along with the golf cart. I know the carpet in the living room and bedrooms is ready for replacement which will be done after the summer rental season. The patio table has been replaced and the views are great from the patio.
Perfect family getaway
Had a great time with my parents and two 5-year old twin girls. Very comfortable condo and nicely decorated. The kids loved swimming and the golf cart. We brought our own equipment and did some snorkeling on the rocky beach in front of Hamilton Cove. Played some tennis with the kids, got lots of rest, and cooked some amazing food on the grill. The queen bed was a little squishy and probably in need of replacement soon. We had all we need in this really nice place. Would love to come back again.
The villa was everything we wanted and more. Highly recommend!
First time to Avalon. Lived in California my whole life and finally came for a visit. The property was wonderful, beds extra comfortable and very clean and new! Already recommended to friends. Also the locals were very friendly and inviting.
We loved staying here! The condo was spacious and comfortable for 5 of us!
