Avalon Condo Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This is one of the few condos in Hamilton Cove that has a view in every room!

With all the essence of the Italian Rivera, the condo offers majestic yet cozy accommodations. From every room an ocean view awaits. This gorgeous vista can be enjoyed as well from the balcony, a perfect place for you to sit back and relax during any time of your stay.

The villa's living area is comfortable with its clean, open space design and fireplace. The kitchen with plentiful counter space is more than suitable for socializing while preparing meals. The bedrooms are stylish with functional furniture to provide comfort and relaxation and the spacious bathrooms include ample storage space.

Amenities feature a golf course, putting green, heated pool, jacuzzi, exercise room, sauna, dock, music room, clubhouse, and tennis courts.

The condo is a mere 20 steps from the street and a few minute golf cart drive to shops, casino movie theater, zipline tours, scuba diving, kayaking, boating, and fishing.

5 Star View but Lacking Luxury Inside

  • 4 of 5

The view was so incredible, it takes your breath away! Access to the balcony from both bedrooms and living area with nice high top tables and chairs and sitting chairs. Plenty of seating for more than 4. We selected this condo based on reviews so renter beware! It is not what I would consider luxury. I get banged up furniture in a rental, but the chairs in the living room are very uncomfortable, the kitchen lighting is poor and it is not well supplied and the hall bathroom is the only one with a shower (this is mentioned in the description but easily overlooked). There were many other minor inconveniences and a terrible smell in the kitchen from the garbage disposal, but the location, wonderful beds, large flat screens in both bedroom and living area, coupled with the view made those things tolerable. I would definitely recommend this area (Hamilton Cove) but unless I knew for sure the owner had taken care of some of the problems I would not rent this unit again. Having a golf cart there is a wonderful amenity ( we went into town daily and cab fare would have really added up) as we found out they rented for $40 an hour! They are very fun to get around in, and golf carts are the main transportation for the island. Hamilton Cove has a small pool and hot tub and tennis courts, even a small beach area. We loved Catalina Island and will go back.

Perfect family vacation spot with my husband and three teens

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect family vacation in Catalina staying at this condo. We have three teenagers and the condo was roomy and comfortable for all of us. Spectacular ocean views from every room and awesome deck to hang out on. The golf cart was awesome and we were so close to everything. We enjoyed Descano Beach Club, ziplining, skyline bus tour, kayaking and ocean runner tour. Also enjoyed the pool, fitness center and beach at condo. We had some great dinners out but enjoyed cooking breakfast and snacks in evening at condo. Also appreciated being able to do a few loads of laundry during visit. We can't wait to come back. Thank you!

You couldn't ask for a better location and the views are among the best in the island.

  • 4 of 5

Hamilton Cove is a spectacular private community. Once you enter the forums you feel like you're in Greece. It's truly one of the most beautiful places on the island. The condo was clean and had all the basics. Needs a little updating and some more kitchen dishes and cups would have been nice. No beach towels or chairs so be sure to bring your own. Overall it's been a perfect trip.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very comfortable for six people. The views are extraordinary! Bathrooms were fine and the shower better than most for Catalina. Kitchen works fine for everyday cooking. I have yet to find a rental in the last six years that will satisfy a gourmet cook. Owner is responsive and helpful. I will definitely be back!

Great spot for a family!

  • 5 of 5

Second time staying at this condo. It's clean and cozy and had everything we needed to make our stay a good one. Minimal stairs to the front door makes it nice. Hamilton Cove is a great spot for families. The patio view was amazing and if you stay here, take advantage of all the amenities like the tennis courts, pool, playground and gym. I was completely satisfied with my stay here and my family all agreed.

Beautiful views!

  • 3 of 5

Our party of 4 couldn't have had better weather or more beautiful views! The views from the deck of this condo are amazing!

The interior of the unit has a few flaws that shouldn't deter you from enjoying your stay but should be known in advance. The master bath doesn't have a shower, only a tub. The only shower is in the hall bathroom. We found the kitchen not to be cleaned (the cabinet drawers were awful and sticky) and the pots, pans and utensils were old and worn out. This unit wasn't cheap and we expected better.

The use of the golf cart is a must because of the distance from town but the golf cart runs great and parking is close to the unit. (beware of the hours of the only gas station to ensure you can fill up before you leave!)

All said, we had a great vacation. We may not stay there again because of the shower situation but if that doesn't bother you then this is your place!
