Decor and comfort of furniture not good. Plumbing fixtures in bathroom sinks and kitchen sink need work. Golf cart very nice but we only used one gallon of gas and had to drive a long way to fill it up.
We really enjoyed this location. I highly recommend it!
PERFECT STAY FOR MY INLAWS!!
This location leaves you wanting for nothing! the view alone is amazing and this is definitely a perfect "home away from home". The check in and check out process was seamless, and the owner Richard was always just a message away for any questions we had. I love that they had a large smart tv in both the bedroom and the living room allowing my family to watch movies in the evening. Small things like that truly make a difference to make you feel at home. Other properties in hamilton cove look nice but are run down and electronics are not up to date so we were pleasantly surprised. The place was beautiful and just as described. There is a "public" balcony meaning you share a large balcony with your neighbors. But they put up some plants in order to give you more privacy. There were some small kids who would pass through but not too much foot traffic. The golf cart was well kept and appears to be newer model which is a nice touch. Honestly I can only say good things about this place and definitely will be back to stay again!
HAMILTON COVE BUILDING 8, UNIT 85
Booking this unit through VRBO was quick and easy. Owner, Richard Gentile, gave us some great information and what to expect and do while on Catalina. He kept in contact with us during our stay, through text and email. Upon entry of unit, could not believe the cleanliness and open concept of the unit. Master suite was rather cozy and loved the French doors to deck area, to which we awoke to beautiful sunrises and relaxing sounds of waves lapping the shoreline.... sounded just like our wave CD that puts us to sleep every night. Slept most nights with door cracked open, gentle breeze flowing through master. We cooked nice breakfasts every morning and snacks, and tried a different restaurant each night. Fish and Chips and Poki on the pier made a nice lunch. Blue Marlin was overall the favorite, but Steve's Steakhouse was fabulous too. The blackened Ahi was so good, we took a to go order with us on our last day before departure. The arrival to island by IEX Helicopters was a quick 12 minute commute to paradise, a bit pricey cab ride, but beats walking with luggage. All establishments on Island were quite warm and friendly, and willing to help with what to do and see. The golf cart was very much appreciated and needed. Zip line, Ariel Adventures, and Parasailing were rather fun.....However; my wife and daughter, did not care for all the steps after the obstacle course, as they were both rather sore for a couple days . " Toughen up, Buttercup !" Both said would do again though. For myself, I get enough of that at work. Could not figure how to get TV or Stereo working in master... not a big deal. We dipped in the ocean a few times, and enjoyed the pool and hot tub everyday. We drove around Ham Cove grounds and took some killer pictures of Avalon Bay. The tour of the Casino, was great and very informative. We drove up to the Wrigley mansion and explored the windy roads, only to appreciate the view even more. Our 5 and a half days on Paradise Island was over too soon, and would love to stay again. We're so glad we didn't book in town, as it looked and sounded a bit too busy and small units. We will be back again. Thank you... Darren Stutz.
Beautiful view and awesome host!
We really enjoyed our stay. Richard was very responsive and helpful. We will definitely be back.
Good times at the Cove in Catalina
The property was just what we had hoped for. We had a great time there. We ate out on the porch and really enjoyed going places on the golf cart. The condo was very clean and well stocked. I highly recommend it, and would gladly stay there again.
This is an Island that can be as relaxing a vacation as EVER or as Active as you wish! Everything from hiking 22 miles across island to laying on a beach sipping your favorite drink. And sightseeing, etc with a free golfcart makes it truly Unique!
