Los Angeles County 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.

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!

Good location for visiting Avalon

  • 4 of 5

The property was generally in good condition with the exception of under counter lighting in the Kitchen. As this was written up before by previous renters it should have been taken care of long ago. The writer recommends 100 % replacement of the fluorescent under counter lighting with LED. This will eliminate lighting problems for years to come.

It is an incredible location with the best ocean views.

  • 4 of 5

The condo is in excellent condition and very roomy with great ocean views. The patio is awesome and a great place to relax and enjoy the views being outdoors. The location is outside of Avalon and a lot of fun to drive down the hill on the golf cart to enjoy the town but then come back to a quiet place and relax. If you like to walk, the condo community offers stairs or road options that provide some elevation and lead down to the water and a beach area.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Catalina Island very much. The views were beautiful. It was a little frustrating when we got there and went to the gate and they didn't have our reservation. They had to call the owner to verify and we had to wait in the cab until she called them back to confirm our reservation. She was nice enough to let us check out late though because there was nobody coming in the day that we left and we really appreciated that. The dishwasher didn't work very well and we had to wash the dishes by hand but couldn't find something to plug the sink with. The pool was very nice. It would be very helpful to have beach towels for 6 since it sleeps 6. Zip lining was great. Overall we had a great time!

Stay was nice, but for the price the condo is neglected and outdated

  • 2 of 5

There are a lot of good things to say about this place but anyone who gives it 5 stars must be getting paid to do so. The views from the deck are incredible and the condo is spacious. Beds were comfortable. TVs in each room make it nice to separate if you so desire. I don't recommend this place if you like to cook. There was one fry pan and the lighting in the kitchen was terrible. The lighting installed under the cabinets only worked randomly and then most of the bulbs were either missing or burnt out. There were no food storage containers available. There is no shower in the master bath so expect to share it, which is not much of an inconvenience since it is close to the master. The wicker chairs in the living room are not comfortable. One of the sinks in the master was clogged. My biggest issue is that I contacted the owner about the fry pan and the lighting not working and initially she told me that she would have someone bring another pan over and check on the lights. Then she responded later saying that there were two pans and the lights worked but we just didn't know how to use them. I'm 54 years old and I know how to turn lights on. I woke up one morning and noticed that a couple of the lights were on. I checked the rest and most of the bulbs were either missing or burnt out. White carpeting is probably not the best choice for a rental. There is no pride of ownership here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to comment and express your concerns regarding your recent stay at the property.We do take great pride of ownership in our home. We really can't believe that because you didn't get a frying pan in a timely manner, and we said you didn't know how to work the lights,you were offended enough to say the price for the condo was not commensurate with the condition,it was neglected and outdated,and we must have paid someone to give us a 5 star rating,even after you said that there were a lot of good things about the place and you had a nice stay! We've had the same amount of pots & pans for over a year and haven't had any negative comments regarding them,however, we are sending over a new set. This is the first we've heard that the under kitchen cabinet lights were faulty. They have now been repaired.This is also the first complaint we've received concerning storage containers. Guests have bought disposable storage containers for a few dollars at Von's and then can take them home if they choose. We will purchase and provide a set of permanent containers to solve this issue. The large tub is a favorite for families with children; however, since the island continues to experience a water shortage, we are installing a shower soon.We had a "back to back" booking when you arrived, and previous guests did not mention a clogged drain. This, most definitely, has been remedied. We appreciated your comments,and have addressed them.In the grand scheme some of this home's top amenities are: amazing views from every room-some of the best in the entire resort,unit is only 20 STEPS from the street,newer kept up golf cart, freshly painted interiors,(3) pairs of super-comfortable high top balcony patio tables to overlook the incredible views,new SMART Samsung flat screen TVs in every room,top of the line Kitchen Aide double-door refrigerator, electric stove, trash compactor, and dishwasher.All these recent upgrades cost over $20,000! We do take great offense to your comment about the home being outdated, neglected, and no pride of ownership,and your statement that we may have paid someone to do a five star rating,even after having said "your stay was nice and there are a lot of good things to say about this place" We listen to our guest comments,and always strive to accommodate them, making their vacation experience a very enjoyable one.We did average 4.4stars out of 17 reviews.

Absolutely Gorgeous Rental

  • 4 of 5

The rental was absolutely gorgeous with a view of the water and access to the complex hot tub and pool was a plus. When we arrived the coffee machine and wifi access were both not working. The host was very responsive and worked to get us a new coffee machine and figure out the wifi connectivity issue. She even gave us a bit of money back for the inconvenience. The beds are amazing and comfortable, house was spotless and view was incredible. The memories from our stay are timeless. Thank you!
