Tom purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Tom chose Avalon
We've enjoyed all our guests and listened to what they want from a VACATION: spacious, clean and fun place to visit with someone trusted on the Island to help with any requests.
What makes this Condo unique
Only a five minute golf cart ride (INCLUDED) from downtown AVALON but far enough to feel like a getaway with views and peace that rivals SANTORINI and CAPRI. Island living!

We had a great stay! The place was clean, the beds and sheets were comfortable, the views were incredible and we loved the 6 seater golf cart! The only negative I can think of is the shower with the bath tub is very hard to get into (deep step up and down). Otherwise excellent stay and would stay again!
Great ocean view and private golf cart was great
The views were as described, in fact, better I'm person han described. Having a private golf cart for our use was fantastic. We had a few questions for Veronica throughout our stay and she always answered her phone and even came by within minutes to show us a few things. We would definitely reserve this condo again.
This place was absolutely perfect for a long weekend birthday celebration. Beds were super comfortable and we had everything we needed. Hated leaving to go into Avalon as views from deck were awesome. Veronica couldn't be nicer or more responsive to our questions or needs. Highly recommend staying here.
Spacious & comfortable
Great fun at Hamilton Cove! The condo was spacious and quiet.
Even better the second stay.....
This was our second stay at this gorgeous condo. We love it so much that we hope it's always available when we travel to Catalina Island! The condo is very clean, the beds are very plush and it has everything you need to stay comfortably. The golf cart is a HUGE bonus! The owner and contact on the Island were helpful and friendly. We had a perfect vacation and a large part of it was because our family was so happy with this condo.
Enjoyed out stay very much
The condo was perfect for us. I would encourage the owner to attend to a few things to make it easier for visitors. The one shower needs to have the handle pulled toward you while turning it or it just dribbles out a bit of water. Took some time to figure that out. Also information how to use the DVD in the first bedroom. Many outlets only work on one of the two plug in options so it limited the use of any one outlet. All in all we enjoyed the unit very much. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was clean and everything was nice an clean. The contact lady on the island was very helpful and always willing to answer any questions we hade.
The Santa Catalina Island is only 22 miles out to sea from Los Angeles but oddly retaining an island charm. Lots of guests come just to relax but some come for the adventure. Here are some of the local attractions worth considering, both on LAND and at SEA:

Beginning at the Hog's Back gate, high in the hills near Avalon and descending through Descanso Canyon, you will pause at several eco-stations along the way before continuing on your journey. At each station, your hosts will give you a presentation on some of the unique and interesting aspects of Catalina Island, its wildlife, history, and the areas you are passing through. Eventually exiting at Descanso Beach your journey will last approximately 2 hours and your memories will last a lifetime. Night Zip will be back in Spring 2015! Experience zipping under the cover of darkness, under the aided light of the stars and moon. Listen for the sounds of the variety of creatures that come out at night including bats, foxes and owls. There's minimal lighting on the course for this thrilling adventure, so participants are outfitted with reflective strips and head lamps.
