Overview

About the property

Best Ocean View! Left,Right and Straight! Beautiful 1 bdrm Villa

Say "Aaaaahhhhhhh" as you drop your bags and realize you've arrived in Paradise! Open the Balcony doors and say, "WOW!" as you look down upon Hamilton Cove Beach and the Crystalline Blue Pacific ocean. You are at your Villa, So close, but so much like a Greek Isle(see the pictures).

That is how we felt the first time we came here. being so close to our home,yet feeling so far from it is the unique reason we decided to buy here and share it with others.

At the private,secure Ham Cove villas, you'll feel the comforts of home and you get to use the Golf Cart!!! A huge bonus that offsets some expense of renting one($40/hr in town).And the Kitchen allows you to make your own meals if you choose and makes staying here more enjoyable and affordable in relation to a hotel. You make what you wish of this vacation spot. Relax in the serenity of true beauty or get out,dine, use the Fitness gym, mini golf(putters and balls in condo), play tennis, swim in the pool, take a power walk around the hills or head down to the ocean for all that has to offer. Jump in the cart(or even a short walk) to Descanso Beach for kayaking, SUP, Spa services and Zipline!!! Great bar/restaurant there too!!!

About RICHARD GENTILE

We are a family of 4 with 2 boys( 10 and 12 to date). Live across the Pacific in Long Beach. Born and raised here but never went to Catalina until later in life. Each time I went there, I became more and more entranced by the beauty, relaxation and serenity that IS an Island. And for me, with my folks getting older and MANY responsibilities at home, I'm able to exhale even more with the knowledge that if need-be, I can get home quickly. The ferry is really a No-brainer(just an hour) or get wild and take a 15min. helicopter ride! If you've never been here, you'll realize what I mean the first time you come and want to return. Also, for us, and if you have a pet(s), it's difficult to leave them behind. We pay Petco to care for our dog(expensive) on the rare longer trips we take. That is why we decided to Allow Pets( additional expense) because our Dog is part of our family and this way we don't have to worry.

RICHARD GENTILE purchased this villa in 2014

The condo was in a great location, beautiful view.

  • 3 of 5

Hamilton cove is the best place to stay in Catalina Island. The facilities are great and must of the condo have a great view. My oveall experience in the unit was nice but I have to rate 3 stars because the whole furniture was outdated and old. We were disappointed at first .However, we had a nice sunny day and the view was amazing. We spent must of the time outside. Overall we have a very nice time.

Wonderful weekend in Catalina

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time during our weekend in Catalina. Rich's condo was perfect for our needs and the view was breathtaking. He was very easy to communicate with and provided us with all the necessary information prior to and during our stay. The use of the golf cart was a definite highlight. We will definitely stay at the place again when we visit Catalina again. Many thanks!

Beautiful view, golf cart included!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this spot.

Richard was extremely accommodating for my family, even including some pool toys for my son!

If you think you need something, be absolutely sure to ask.

If you've never been to Avalon, the included golf cart is a HUGE bonus. Lets you get all around the town, and renting one while you're there is quite expensive!

Be sure to wake up early at least once to catch the sunrise!

It's Santa Catalina, Live it up!

  • 4 of 5

Richard is accommodating and accessible, both of which I consider #1 important as a veteran VRBOer. Nothing worse to ruin a vacation than to be "stranded" with no one to call about issues or questions. In fact, Richard also has someone on the island who was also accessible. The view from the balcony can't be beat. There were no other renters on the shared balcony, where each unit has its own space but no partition. Spend a lot of time out there just kickin' it with the scenery. The pads for the chairs seemed a little funky, but comfortable and it would have been nice to have higher chairs and table height to see above the railing, as does a neighbor unit that is seen in the photo to the left of the balcony.The unit comes with its own golf cart to get around, both essential and fun! Would not have rented without it. We were unable to find the passenger seat belt and it is a little beat up but works! The bathroom is a Jack and Jill type in case you have people sleeping on the couch. We were unable to connect our computer or tablet to the internet. A disappointment but our phones connected. How odd. The computer has connected on wifi's all over the US and abroad. There is a modem/router in the unit.The fan in the bedroom is wobbly and noisy but I am not sure you will ever need it there. Look, it is not perfect (the development started 30 years ago) but at the end of the day, it is a winner unit and if you focus on island fun, there are just minor observations about it .That is the only reason could not give it 5 stars. We would return to this unit.
