About Jenny Blaylock

This stunning home is managed by Simplicity Vacation Property Management, but the owners love to come to Catalina Island and partake in the island activities such as snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, etc. BUT they also love to eat! Catalina has some of the best food - be sure to try Big Olaf's ice cream and the Cheese Bread! Enjoy!

Jenny Blaylock purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jenny Blaylock chose Los Angeles County

This unit has been completely remolded and all the furnishings have been purchased very carefully for this shows like a designer model. Our home is very open and comfortable...the way a vacation home should feel. Because it is 1275 square feet, unlike most other two bedrooms that are below 1000 square feet, you have room to unwind when staying with a family.

What makes this condo unique

While staying in Hamilton Cove many guests love to snorkel off our private beach as a family. Father and son can play basketball while Mother and daughter enjoy the play ground or look for sea glass at the beach. Please enjoy the pool and spa and mini golfing as a family. Also, feel free to take advantage of the work-out facilities or just relax on the patio while enjoying the spectacular view. If you want to leave, this unit comes with a really nice golf cart that will take you anywhere you need to go on the island.

Beautiful Hamilton Cove

  • 5 of 5

Really a beautiful island. I would definitely recommend Hamilton Cove for its beauty as well as the use of a Golf Cart. We enjoyed our very comfortable unit, our beautiful views and the versatility to move about the island with the golf cart. Jenny was awesome and always available! Our ferry was unexpectedly cancelled and she graciously moved our rental back one day to accommodate our changed schedule. Our only complaint was it was much chillier than I had expected on the island, expecially at night. I would definitely recommend this unit! Our favorite restaurant was The Lobster Trap!

Catalina Island Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! It was clean and beautifully decorated. The view was amazing! The only problem we had was the internet access did not seem to be working during our stay. The 6 person golf cart was so much fun. What a great perk! We had an incredible time and hated to leave. I would highly recommend this property. There are a lot of steps to climb to get to the condo, so if you have any limiting physical issues it might not be right for you.

Graduation and 10 year vow renewal

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of renting this beautiful condo in Hamilton Cove. The pictures are exactly what it looks like. We didn't have any issues with anything. There were a lot of stairs to climb each time we left and came back but I took it as a little more exercise. (73 steps to be exact.) But other then that I would highly recommend it. We will defiantly stay here again.

Growing up, I went to Catalina almost every summer and I've never seen a home more beautiful, updated, and well stocked than this! Gorgeous views, clean, and easy. Can't wait to return! Thank you!

60th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our family, including our 2 grandsons ages 4 and 6, spent a long weekend in Hamilton Cove to celebrate my 60th birthday. We cannot express how special it was. The condo was very clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The views from the veranda were absolutely gorgeous and we felt like we had traveled to Italy instead of Catalina. Aleta, the owner, and her staff were very quick to respond: very courteous. We hope to go back soon and would definitely book this same condo again. Be prepared to walk up some stairs each time as the condo is on top floor. We did not mind this, however, as it was great exercise!

Wow, just Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my son and I had the most amazing experience staying in this condo! It felt like Greece with the blue water against the white stucco of the buildings. It was mesmerizing. The condo itself was beautiful, and QUIET! We had wished for a place that was close to Avalon, but far enough away to have our own downtime. It was exactly what we needed and all of the amenities of the condo community were ideal! We are excited to return and grateful to Aleta for helping us really enjoy our vacation to the fullest!
