About Karen Shusterman

We have been enjoying the serene, calmness that is 'Catalina' for several years. We visit as often as is possible when work and life don't get in the way! Beginning at the time we arrive at the boat dock, we feel like we have travelled to a distant island and we shift into island mentality, relaxation and fun.

Karen Shusterman purchased this condo in 2001

Why Karen Shusterman chose Los Angeles County

There are several excellent restaurants and boutique shops in the quaint town of Avalon. There are also numerous activities to enjoy or you may simply choose to relax.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing 236 Hamilton Cove. The property amenities attracted me more than anything compared to hotels in Avalon but I was concerned if it was worth the price. I had no idea the place was so beautiful. Also, the golf cart is a luxury item there and now I know why all the owners have one. Your recommendations were spot on as well.

Again, thank you for sharing this beautiful place.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

It really is as beautiful as it looks. The condo is great inside as it has everything you may need, but that outside balcony can't be beat! It is in the middle of a condo cluster so there are about 100 steps to go up and about 100 steps to go down. Must be in good shape to live here. The golf cart is a must and is worth renting this condo alone.

Host is quick to respond and willing to work with you on check in and check out if she can.

Beautiful property situated just far enough away

  • 4 of 5

The property is amazing- especially if you have kids who enjoy the pool and other activities. The owner was very accommodating and thought of most things a family would need. One thing I thought of that would have been nice to have would be some beach towels. If you go to Descanso (which I highly recommend, you will get beach towels there). The golf cart made getting around really easy. The balcony is shared and for the most part, that wasn't an issue, except if you are early to bed and you have neighbors who like to sit out on veranda and contemplate life during the wee hours. Everything else worked out really well. Highly recommend!

Great stay for Memorial Day with the kids...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay during Memorial Day. We stayed for 3 days and had a great time. Very nice property with a GREAT view! We had a great time in Catalina with the kids. Spent a whole day at the pool and spa swimming and enjoying the view from the pool. The property included a few tennis rackets and tennis balls for the tennis courts as well as a few putters and golf balls for the 18 hole putting greens. My 2 year old loved chasing the golf balls and dropping them into the cup for me. The included golf cart was an awesome bonus to the rental. We drove it every where.

One warning, there are a lot of steps. We counted 88 steps from the golf cart parking up to the rental. We didn't mind too much. It was an easy way to work off our meals. But if you have any issues with steps, be warned. For us, the steps were completely worth the view.

Contact with the owner was easy and quick. We contacted her a couple times by email and twice by phone. She responded quickly each time via email and answered both times by phone. She was very easy to deal with.

The cleaning crew did a great job cleaning up before our stay. The only complaint I had was one that had nothing to do with property or with the owner. Although it is a non-smoking property, the idiot tenants that rented before us, stayed past their check out time and decided to smoke a ton of weed as they were leaving and as we were checking in with our 4 year old and our 2 year old. We could smell it from a 100 yards away. Needless to say, I was very irritated. I just hope they lost their cleaning deposit. The cleaning crew did an awesome job getting rid of the smell as best they could. Only a faint lingering smell remained for the first night and was gone by the next morning.

Other than idiots that preceded us, we had a great stay. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it in a heart beat. We are looking forward to our next opportunity to jump out to Catalina and we'll stay here again for sure.
