About Marian

Catalina has been a part of my life, and held a special place in my heart since I came on vacations with my parents, as a child; I met my husband here after I graduated from college. We brought our children to my parents family cottage every summer, and as they grew to adulthood we were blessed to be able to acquire our own house. Here, we all now vacation with the fourth generation in our family, our grandchildren.

Marian purchased this house in 2004

Why Marian chose Catalina Island

We chose to buy this home because it was the perfect place to remember the cherished times my parents made possible and to pass on the legacy to those we love and those who would follow.

What makes this house unique

We love this home because it is full of light and had wonderful views, as well as plenty of space to relax, prepare and share meals,and enjoy family and friends.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable and perfect if you plan to hang out at Descanso and the dive park. Super close to town too! Even though it's a busy street, the house is quiet. Great ocean breeze flows through to keep you cool. Comfortable beds and nice bathrooms!! We will be staying here again for sure!

Perfect location for everything!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this beautiful house for the weekend. The weather was perfect. The house has some beautiful views and wonderful breezes. Short walk to the boats, the beach, restaurants and shops plus the spa is at the end of the street! Both the owner and property manager are sweet and helpful. Cannot wait to come back soon!

Nice house and great view!

  • 5 of 5

It's a great house! Very nice neighbors and close to the shore. We were all out of shape so 4 houses uphill was a challenging walk if you have a lot of luggage. We like cooking so they had all the supplies we needed to cook up a family meal!

Fabulous Location!

  • 4 of 5

What a great location. Just a block from the water and close to everything including recommended restaurants, grocery store and hikes. Realize that the place is old and not particularly soundproof for all of the golf carts that will go right by the house. But, everything worked (heat was tricky because the place has 3 floors and the top floor has tons of sun...hence the terrific views from up there). The morning temperature on the main floor was 64 degrees...despite a setting of 77 degrees! However, we just solved the problem the second night by shutting off the heat on the top floor. Don't let it scare you away, however. Location is worth it!

Owner's Response: I appreciate this thoughtful review, especially because I hadn't realized the house temperature could be a challenge, previously. But then, we rarely have a winter that has cold temperatures as this one did! I'm thankful the guests were resourceful and found a solution. We are hoping to replace windows in the near future, to somewhat mute the golf cart noises from the street.

Beautiful house and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house for 3 days. The house is more beautiful then on the pictures. The views are amazing. What a smart idea to have a living room on the top floor! Marian, the owner, was so kind and nice, and she let us check in early and check out late, since it did not affect other guests. We had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable, kitchen spacious. No complaints. Would stay here again!

Great location with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We have always rented at Hamilton Cove in the past but we are so glad we stayed at this wonderful home so close to everything and comfortable and what a view. The owner, Marian, was so kind and flexible with check in and check out time. She was very responsive to our questions and needs. The property manager was also quick to respond to my text messages with a few questions I had. We will definitely stay here in the future. It's a gem!
