Overview

About the property

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.

* PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A STAGE 3 WATER SHORTAGE AND RESTRICTION OF USE IN EFFECT ON THE ISLAND. PLEASE BE CONSERVATIVE IN USE *

Best location in Hamilton Cove!

  • 4 of 5

PROS:

We were blown away by the location of this unit... best location in the Cove in my opinion! Panoramic unobstructed view of the water. And one of the few units with a spacious deck to enjoy... we sat outside on lounge chairs, ate dinner outside, etc. Our first thought was it felt like we were on a Greek island with gorgeous views of the mediterranean. Bonus: If you get out on the deck betweek 6:00-6:45AM you can see big sand sharks roaming the coast below.

The unit was spacious, with 5 beds plus a sofabed, comfortably accomodating our group of 8. The layout is great too and condo is well furnished.

The owners were wonderful to deal with, making everything so easy. I can't rate them high enough on quality of service. Just terrific.

The unit includes a large golf cart, which was fantastic to have. You can pay extra for a 2nd cart if you have a large party which really helped us out.

CONS:

Pretty sure this is an island wide problem, but ants... we found these little critters roaming around every room of the place. Never en masse, which was good (the traps around the house probably keep them at bay), but we did have them in a few of the beds. My husband woke up one night with several crawling on him.

In the summer, be prepared that you may have some annoying outside noise at night. The Cove is filled with renters in the summer, many of whom I'm sure are considerate of their neighbors. We were unlucky and had some incredibly loud people next door for one night of our stay, as well as loud families yelling in the streets that same night around 11pm. 2 nights of quiet, then a loud Saturday night.

A few of the home features are starting to show their age: deadbolts that don't actually lock, blinds that won't close or turn, broken lamp in one room, some windows difficult to close, etc. The bones of the home are great, but could use just a little bit of updating.

OVERALL:

The ants in the beds were a problem for us, but every other issue could be overlooked because of the fantastic location, the spacious deck and the comfortable home. If we knew a more aggressive solution was in place for the ants we would ABSOLUTELY book another stay at Villa Sur Mar.

Beautiful location, helpful staff!

  • 4 of 5

The owner and staff made planning and departing easy with their friendly flexible attitude. The location was gorgeous. The golf cart was fun. My parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary and we will all remember this trip. Thanks!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved keeping the door open at night and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves. Hamilton Cove is away from the bustle of Avalon which was nice. We would rent this place again!

Additional information about rental rates

Damage Deposit $300

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!
