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.

Best location and views

  • 4 of 5

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!

The place was lovely with beautiful view. Having access to golf carts made our time on Catalina so enjoyable.

Spectacular ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Fabulous views from this home! Enjoyed being in Hamilton Cove community, Descano Beach Club is great! Pool is close by and it's fun to watch people on the zip line and obstacle courses. We had a great time.

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!
