About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Mike, the Buffalo overlooks this enchanting home completely renovated to capture the “island vibe.” This home is a spacious 1275 square foot treasure with stunning 180-degree direct ocean views. In the day, you can watch the dolphins, seals, birds and boats while the evening brings the unapparelled view of the southern California coast alit from twenty-three miles across the pacific. Inside the home, vaulted ceilings and open floor plan offer an expansive living space with Ocean Views from three sets of French patio doors. Relax on the 150-inch Sectional Sofa while selecting one of 10,000 movies on hand from Netflix on the massive 65-inch Plasma TV. Read a book from our 'All Things Catalina' library, stream your own music or play what is provided through the blue tooth enabled stereo system. Many choose to BBQ or cook with the ocean breeze while enjoying the professionally decorated unit which incorporates brand top shelf furnishings with rare, antique and indigenous items such as original Catalina Pottery and tiled table.
We have taken great strides to make the home comfortable and hope you enjoy the 500-thread count bedding and Designer Towels. Stainless Steel Appliances accompany fine Marble and updated Faucets and Lighting fixtures throughout the kitchen and both bathrooms. Enjoy the blue Pacific from the game room a game table which has a full selection of board games and Murphy bed. Furnishings and bar-b-que sit under tiled deck on the patio. Washer and Dryer are present inside the unit. This unit along with unit next door unit take up the entire top of building four so you can rent both units for extended family and friends. In exchange for steps up to building four, these units both have elevated vaulted ceilings and amazing sprawling ocean views making the walk up well worth it! Please reference VRBO ID 497962 to view the neighboring unit.
This home is located in exclusive Hamilton Cove which boasts of a beach area, tennis, croquette, putting and tennis courts. Yet, if you are visiting Catalina, we recommend you get take our superior Brand New 2015 Yamaha Limo Cart into town and explore. You will be just minutes from the Descanso Beach Club where you can rent a Cabana or simply enjoy this fully wonderful beach club which offers beach lounge chairs as well as a bar and food. Many folks will hit the beach club after an exciting zip line experience or to simply enjoy an afternoon. We could go on and on about Catalina Island, but we think the Chamber of Commerce said it best in describing our beloved Island, “Catalina Island is a picture-perfect paradise and a world apart from the hustle and bustle of the mainland just 22 miles away. The air is refreshing, the water is clear, the community is casual and friendly, and there’s not one traffic light on the whole Island. From the city of Avalon to the rustic village of Two Harbors, experience the Island for yourself - explore the rugged back country where the buffalo roam, enjoy the most stylish in dining experiences, conquer the rush of thrilling adventures, and relax on the sand with the gentle rhythm of the ocean. When you’re on Island Time, you’re always having the time of your life.”

This unit has been completely remolded and all the furnishings have been purchased very carefully for this home....it shows like a designer model. Our home is very open and comfortable...the way a vacation home should feel. Because it is 1275 square feet, unlike most other two bedrooms that are below 1000 square feet, you have room to unwind when staying with a family.
