Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our condo is located in the exclusive, gated Hamilton Cove community. You'll enjoy palm trees and an expansive view of the Pacific Ocean from any room in our condo. At the horizon, you can see Los Angeles and in the foreground is a private beach. A pool, hot tub and fitness center are just steps away. The community also offers a playground, sand volleyball court, 18-hole putting green, tennis courts, croquet lawn, basketball hoop and picnic area for your enjoyment.

We continuously update our place and recently purchased a king bed. The balcony is a delightful spot to have breakfast and watch the sunrise. And while the sun sets on the other side of the island, it is still incredible to enjoy the beauty of dusk. Our villa is accessed via five flights of stairs.

Keywords: You'll enjoy a beautifully decorated one bedroom villa with views of the Pacific from every room and the spacious balcony.

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 villa in 2001

Why Karen Shusterman chose Avalon

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.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was very nice at this condo except the stairs up when we went down to the pool or the beach or the play area with our 20 month old son as we had to carry him up on our way back. It was not bad when we went out of hamilton cove to other parts of the island as on our way back one of us used to get out of the golf cart at the top of the building with our son and then take the stairs down to the unit. We all had a wonderful time on the island and loved our stay at this condo.

Beautiful Location!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Catalina Island and what a visit was! This Condo was perfect. It had absolutely beautiful views and close to Descanso Beach . Use of the golf cart made getting around the island a plus. The Condo was beautiful and had everything you can possibly need for your stay. The stairs were a bit to handle but a small price to pay. I would recommend this spot for your next visit to Catalina Island. We will be back!

Beautiful, but sleeps 2

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Hamilton Cove Villa. The views are truly lovely, and of course the golf cart is fun to have. The kitchen was well equipped. The pool and hot tub were great. However, please be aware this should not be billed as a "sleeps four" condo. The sofa bed in the living room is not realistically usable as a bed. Our teenagers, who could sleep anywhere (probably standing upright, if necessary) could not sleep on it. The second night, they slept on the tile floor rather than get back into it. Less problematic but still an issue, the patio furniture is worn out. The tall chairs can't be used because metal bars and screws poke through the seat material. The shade umbrella is broken and cannot be opened. Time for a furniture upgrade!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay completely. The outdoor bar stools and bar were given to us a few years ago and had become quite worn. Since your stay, I have disposed of them. The table and chairs will remain for outside seating. We do not own an umbrella, so I'm puzzled about your comment about it not opening. I assume that someone else's broken umbrella was deposited on our patio. We do not wish to take the risk of having an umbrella take flight as they often do at Hamilton Cove when the wind sweeps up off the ocean. As for the sofa bed, I took your comment to heart and doubled the depth of the mattress to make it much more comfortable.
