On water's bluff - minutes walk to the beach - minutes cart ride to downtown
An exquisite retreat for guests, with the essence of the Italian Riviera and the Amalfi Coast, this condo is uniquely located on the bluff beneath the blue sky and overlooking the tranquil Pacific Ocean of Catalina Island.
Why rent VILLA SUL MAR? We are on the water, only three steps to front door (not common with other condos), 2 minute walk to beach (whoops! I forgot my sunblock), 3 bedrooms, (two with balconies and view), an additional 400 sq. ft. of patio with lounge chairs, table and umbrella, BBQ, and all of this overlooking the Pacific.
Artist, writer, poet, or vacationer, VILLA SUL MAR offers many amenities to make your stay memorable. Custom furnishings, white carpets and flooring, fully equipped kitchen and laundry room, indoor formal dining area, large kitchen counter for informal snacks, outside patios, and especially - moonlight over the water with the twinkle of the mainland lights in the distance.
Located in a guarded gate community, Hamilton Cove offers the beach, pier, pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, putting green, tennis courts, sand BBQ pits and volleyball. A 10 minute walk (or 5 minute cart ride) to Descanso Beach offers more fun— kayaking, Catalina climbing wall, zip lining, restaurants, shopping, cabanas, and all water sports rentals.
This VILLA was purchased for, and is still used by the owners, as a year round home, so everything is maintained at the highest levels.
With over 2000 sq. ft. of spacious accommodations, a new 6 passenger cart is included in rental with an option to rent another 4 passenger cart from the owner for an additional fee.
So sorry, sweet pets and smokers not allowed. Please note that there is a $200 cleaning fee based upon total occupancy that is due upon check out and payable directly to the housekeeper by cash or check. Check in is 3PM and check out is 11AM.

This place besides the views has nothing.
It’s old, it’s messy. I paid top dollars for this place, it was the worst experience. Oven burner not working, dish washer broken, fridge drawer not closing properly, bbq dirty, broken glass on the patio, utensils missing barely enough for 4 people, WiFi terrible, light bulbs missing or not working, bathroom towels barely for 6 people who are spending 3 days in the place ( we had to wash them and reuse them) blinds that won’t come down or up because of tangeled strings.The place is very old and not at all maintained. I wouldn’t suggest this place unless they do a major remodeling. I have stayed in this complex for the past 8 years and rented units in the past but this is by far the worst unit in probably the complex. It’s a joke and an insult to rent this type of places.
The views most certainly are lovely, but it sounds like many other items offset that for you. We did speak with you during your stay and thought that these items had been addressed. Often times people don't realize lights are on 3-way switches so they think they don't work, when indeed its a matter of flipping the right switch. We've never had a complaint about lack of utensils, nor did the guest that followed you indicate the supply was lacking so we aren't sure what happened there. We've also never heard of a fridge drawer not working or we would have adjusted that right away. As you were told prior to your trip, a wind storm broke the glass table top outside, and unfortunately the manufacturer sent the wrong size glass as a replacement. Being on an island it is not easy to get things on and off, and this shipment error was beyond our control. Lastly on towels, had you asked housekeeping for additional towels she would not have hesitated to get them for you. It sounds like lots of miscommunication, but in all, it equaled a less than stellar stay for you, and for that we apologize. As you will see from previous reviews, we do work hard to make our guests happy and we have a solid track record of doing so. We are sorry that experience wasn't the same for you. Best wishes for you on future travels.
We had a delightful stay! Al was perfect with the exception of our upstairs neighbors footsteps over the master bedroom...just a part of stacked condos. The views are simply stunning and the condo is spacious and beautiful!
Best location and views
The pros of this home outweigh the cons. The unit is dated and had a lot of repair issues. Management was responsive to our calls on some of the problems.
The unit is in such a gorgeous location and affords such privacy that it's hard to critique negatively.
My advice is to not expect too much from the interior and kitchen and enjoy the beauty that is right outside of the French doors of almost every room!
Beautiful location and view
Beautiful location and view! Plenty of room for 6-8 people. Nice decor and amenities
Great place to stay!
The place was lovely with beautiful view. Having access to golf carts made our time on Catalina so enjoyable.
Spectacular ocean views!
We loved this beautiful home in Hamilton Cove. There were eight of us traveling from all over for a Girl's Weekend to celebrate 40+ years of friendship and this home did not disappoint. It was large enough to stretch out, but cozy too. We spent most of our time on the expansive terrace just taking in the views. I would HIGHLY recommend and hope to return soon with my family!!
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
There is a $200 cleaning fee that is due upon check out and payable directly to the housekeeper by cash or check. This fee is not shown in your pricing break down for your stay as it gets paid directly, not through the VRBO system. Please figure it in to your budget for your trip. Check in is 3PM and check out is 11AM. Full names of all guests staying at or visiting during the traveler's stay must be provided in order to ensure access to the rental property. If your boat or helicopter arrives prior to check in time, we recommend you stay in town and grab a bite to eat as there are no restaurants or shops in Hamilton Cove and it is a 1/2 mile hike to town from the villa. As there is a water shortage on the island please be responsible with use. Similarly be courteous with lights and power usage during your stay. We look forward to hosting you!
