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.

Fantastic Time

  • 5 of 5

The unit was everything we expected it to be and more. Beautiful setting and fabulous views. The included golf cart was very useful and necessary to get around the island. While we spent most of our time on the balcony, the unit was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped.

All in all a great stay in a great place.

Hamilton Cove Condo was so fun!

  • 4 of 5

The condo does have everything needed to cook or host friends. Perfect for a romantic get away. The view from the balcony is incredible. The use of the golf cart which is provided makes it easy to get anywhere in Avalon in minutes. We felt like a local from the time we arrived. I highly recommend this great condo on Catalina.

perfect place to stay in the island

  • 5 of 5

beautiful views, clean space, full furnished and with all the details. Golf cart is a plus, (required to stay in this property) The only con is the stairs if you are not in shape to go up and down. Be ready to walk around 5 floors up and down all the time. But even with this, the place is perfect. Easy to deal with owner.

Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this condo (November 2016) which should tell you how much we enjoy it. It is very well appointed with everything needed from the kitchen to the patio. The cleanness of the unit and Karen’s responsiveness and attention to detail was obvious. The golf cart was a great plus. We would recommend this place to any of our friends who might be looking for a great getaway.

Needs improvements

  • 3 of 5

This property needs some TLC! The sofa bed is very dilapidated and uncomfortable even with the addition of a Memory Foam pad. The dishwasher is distractingly loud, and the oven and microwave are pretty antiquated. I also did not enjoy the cracked tile, hard water deposits, and older fixtures. That being said, the owner was prompt in responding to our inquiries, and the views from the balcony were beautiful! And the bed in the master bedroom was quite comfortable.
