About Lamont

Since visiting Catalina Island over 20 years ago, I've always dreamt of owning anything on the Catalina Island. Allow me to share my dream with.

Lamont purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lamont chose Los Angeles County

This building is the closet to the beach you can get. With zero steps to climb to get to the front door, its convenient and comfy for people from 2 to 8. With two PRIVATE (non shared) balconies, you can truly enjoy your privacy.

What makes this condo unique

Two entries into the unit, one from the Kitchen/Livingroom and another from the master suite, so mom and dad can respark the romance in complete privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lamont I just wanted to thank you again for your beautiful place and the whole family and friends had a time of our lives. Weather was a perfect 10!


Yes! It's was a five out of five!!

a few days before the fourth of ??July

  • 4 of 5

Crowds were down, but picked up Sat bas we left. So that was nice. plenty of activities. The conservancy jeep trip was fun. We saw b son, eagles and other birds, and foxes. /

The apartment was nice, but a terrible fold out couch. So we used the cushions. If there were only 4 of you, it couldn't be better. The golf cart could use some seat belts. The pool, sauna, hot tub and fitness room were all good. As was the playground and picnic area,

The chinese restaurant was closed Wed and Thursday. 2 days! unheard of. In my experience they never have a closed days. This is kind of worldwide.

Nice place...a few issues

  • 3 of 5

Over all, this was a nice location. Please understand, there are limited things to outfit a rental on Catalina, unless you purchase what is already in the island (limited), have it delivered, or bring it yourself.

Pros: Nice secluded location away from the tourist mass. There is a gas powered 6 seater golf cart, and the total fuel used for 4 days was under $11. Great value. The unit was comfortable, though there were a few issues, but nothing that was a deal breaker. The pool was a nice place for a swim after my ocean swims. The condo was very spacious. There are steps to the unit, however an elevator was available. Nearby zip-line was fun. Food on island rated from a 6-9, with 'M' having a very reasonable very nice Mother's Day brunch.

Cons: Again, not deal breakers, but you should be aware...1. Ocean views from condo are very limited. For the most part, you look across a street to other condo's, and when the bars closed, it got noisy. I am an early riser, but other's on vacation would have had a hard time sleeping in due to a VERY loud family across the street. 2. The 2nd bathroom toilet wouldn't flush without lifting the tank lid and actuating the handle, and the door wouldn't latch. No big deal for our family, but for you???. 3. The condo was a far cry from clean when we arrived. We had to clean prior to feeling comfortable, but we didn't do anything about the lipstick and spilled drink on the wall by the TV. We left the condo how we would have liked to see it for the next person. 4. We rent a lot of private homes in and outside of the US. We ALWAYS find the basics: Salt, pepper, condiments and prior visitor's non perishables. When we arrived, the refrigerator and freezer were completely empty. No ketchup, mustard, etc. The freezer was filthy. There were no paper plates or cups, and only a few trash bags. On our 4 day stay, we needed to purchase toilet paper and trash bags. I have NEVER provided those things in the past. 5. The golf cart was really nice, however it needs tires BADLY. Almost all tread was gone. 6. My refund was not refunded until I asked for it. 7. This unit is nice, but tired. Basic paint and new hinges on non closing kitchen cabinet doors would go a long way, but, again, it's not my place.

Would I stay here again? Yes, but I would want to know that the issues above were taken care of, or I would have brought my own TP. :-) Not something you can hop into the golf cart and return with in under 20 minutes.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 3 days in Hamilton Cove and we really enjoyed amenities such as tennis courts, mini golf, private beach, and pool. It was a Memorial Day weekend and the location wasn't crowded at all. Very private. Golf cart was a definite plus.

The apartment was clean and nicely appointed, close to all the attractions.

We will definitely stay here one more time. Thank you!

Unbelievably beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to take my girlfriend and her family to Catalina for their first time. It was my girlfriends birthday present. Not only did they love the island but when entering the condo, their jaws dropped with how beautiful everything was. I would definitely rent again. Oh and with the golf cart provided makes for an easy-going comfortable weekend with accessablit all over the island
