No hot water
We checked in ... no hot water. Next day still no hot water. Day three finally hot water. We stayed in contact with the property owner and his options were to hike to the clubhouse (which we did) or he would rent us another unit for an additional $150 per day. (Which we didn’t do). So we felt we deserved a partial refund which he refused. No hot water? No refund? What do you think? I would not recommend renting from this property owner based on that interaction.
BACK TO THEE ISLAND Aug. 8 & 9 2018
The condo was very comfortable with all the amenities of home...and....the view was amazing! Quite fun to have the golf cart to cruise around the island on......Thanks for a great stay!
Great View but....
Yes the view was exceptional as most all properties at Hamilton Cove are. However, i felt that the size and amenities were somewhat overstated in the property description. It states up to 6 people, having two couples was actually a stretch. The two rooms were extremely small with the beds taking up about 90% of the area and windows between the rooms eliminated any type of privacy. Aside from the utility closet in the entry way, there were no closets in either of the rooms. The furnishings were also outdated. We were out for New Years with 10 other couples who occupied 5 other properties at Hamilton Cove (all within $50/night in cost) and ours was by far the smallest and least comfortable. We love Hamilton Cove and this was our 5th time staying at a property here. We were unfortunately disappointed this time.
The view is priceless!
Everything was as described. Tom was very helpful. Chela was also very communicative and a great resource. The golf cart was a much appreciated and utilitized element of our stay. The expansive and unobstructed ocean views are gorgeous. The location is perfect. I would love to stay here again soon!
A beautiful n memorable vacation at this private condo
The place was beautiful and has a spectacular view, having the golf cart for getting to n from town was very convenient . Nice little gym, nice tennis courts, pool is perfect temp n nice little private beach with picnic areas. Only 5 minutes from Zipline
Make sure you have all questions answered by your host before your arrival. There is no signal for your phone for calling or texting once you are in Hamilton cove
Tom was very responsive n helpful
A very memorable vacation
Great view...uncomfortable unit. :(
The view from this unit is absolutely awesome, but other than that I'm sorry to say I can't give it a more positive review. Technically it has two bedrooms, but it was obviously originally one bedroom. The two bedrooms are so tiny there is only room for the beds, and there are no closets. The only storage is underbed drawers that are somewhat hard to access because the rooms are so small. The listing states that there is a queen bed in each room but one of the beds is only a full size bed. For four adults it was very uncomfortable. There are many many other inadequacies that were disappointing during our stay. But did I mention the great view? We won't be staying here again.
Thank you for the review. We appreciate all feedback. Unfortunately, many guests do not read the disclaimer for our listing that states the unit is "quaint" for several adults. We are currently working on a fix for the storage situation and hopefully it will be resolved quickly for future guests. As for the beds, one might seem smaller than the other but they are both queen sized mattress. Either way, we will be replacing the mattress.
Once again, Thank you very much for choosing our listing.
The Santa Catalina Island is only 22 miles out to sea from Los Angeles but oddly retaining an island charm. Lots of guests come just to relax but some come for the adventure. Here are some of the local attractions worth considering, both on LAND and at SEA:
