About Jenny Blaylock
This stunning home is managed by Simplicity Vacation Property Management, but the owners love to come to Catalina Island and partake in the island activities such as snorkeling, zip lining, hiking, etc. BUT they also love to eat! Catalina has some of the best food - be sure to try Big Olaf's ice cream and the Cheese Bread! Enjoy!
Jenny Blaylock purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Jenny Blaylock chose Avalon
This unit has been completely remolded and all the furnishings have been purchased very carefully for this home....it shows like a designer model. The 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.
What makes this Condo unique
While staying in Hamilton Cove many guests love to snorkel off our private beach as a family. Father and son can play basketball while Mother and daughter enjoy the play ground or look for sea glass at the beach. Please enjoy the pool and spa and mini golfing as a family. Also, feel free to take advantage of the work-out facilities or just relax on the patio while enjoying the spectacular view. If you want to leave, this unit comes with a really nice golf cart that will take you anywhere you need to go on the island.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful property we really enjoyed the time they’re
Easy rental with amazing views on a really great property we enjoyed our stay only a couple of very small hiccups which were a lot of the dishes were dirty and had to be re-washed before we used them and two of the golf cart tires had slow leaks and had to be refilled.
Rented out both units for our families. We had the best vacation here on Catalina. Everything was exactly as advertised and we could not have been more happy with how we were able to be next door neighbors. Will rent this place again if we come back.
This property's location and views will mesmorize you until you come down to reality and see how dirty it really is. Inept house keeping and maintenance. Olivia told me all things were fixed from complaints since January. Absolutely not true as not one was addressed. Dryer not working properly and dishwasher falls out of opening when loading lower rack cause it's not installed properly. Bed is broken down in master bedroom( sink holes) dining table slopes at a radical angle to wall.all light fixtures have miss matched and missing bulbs which I did my best to remedy. At least 10 remotes for T. V. Stuff. Latch on shower missing. Closets and cabinets full of broken items and disguarded things. Seems new things come in and old ones do not get removed. Electronic candles have no batteries as well as dead batteries in remotes and clocks. Ceiling fan remote missing back and batteries. We went in on maid at 2:00 when she was about to leave. She had a few rags and a broom. No cleaners and no mop. No fresh smell from any chemical cleaners whatsoever . The floors were dirty and by the end of the first day our feet were black! once laying down or seated you could see crumbs and dust bunnies under furniture and beds. Toilets and sinks were clean but mold in the shower corner six inches each way. Bathroom fans dusty dirty. Missing moldings and baseboards. Couch needs a desperate cleaning, pillows filthy. Mismatched and worn ,cheap linens.mismatched dishes. These properties owners have neglected this property.
Too many stairs
Too much money for what you get only saving grace was having the golf cart. Was not a true two bedroom suite, one room was a converted den, only place to hang cloths was on a pipe hanging on the wall with 6 hangers very tacky. Did have great views. Master bedroom closet is almost bigger than the second bedroom.
Great but checkout some review details
Overall you should have a great time in this unit. Property Management's local contact, Chella, was prompt and responsive. The chairs on the balcony are the high seat height type needed the enjoy the view over the wall. There are six of them. Not every unit we have ever been in gave that enough thought. Their policy to allow check in before 3pm when the unit was vacant was very appreciated.
The master bedroom does not have a shower
AT&T phone service did not work at this location but Verizon did. WIFI works great.
There was insufficient written advise about the TV. It turned out that you must press the STB button before you can change channels.
The refrigerator has a water leak that drips from the overflow tray on to the floor unless you set it on ice cubes instead of water.
Only a 4 cup capacity coffee maker was on the counter, and only 4 coffee mugs were found in the unit.
Dishwasher not bolted to the counter top. So, it tips towards you if opened with heavy dishware in the top tray.
Golf cart does seem to need warming up at first, as indicated by property management. However the golf cart instructions are to use the choke in certain such circumstances. No choke was located in this golf cart.
Parking for more than 1 hour at a time is a challenge. Unlimited daytime parking spaces (uncolored curbs) can be located within a few blocks of the main street.
We loved our stay at Hamilton Cove! The condo is charming and comfortable with incredible views! The master bedroom is very spacious with plenty of extra room for our little boy. The second bedroom is very small and the mattress moves out from the headboard since they aren’t connected. Some of the appliances could use an upgrade but overall we had a wonderful stay and would recommend!
