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!!!

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

It's all about that view!

  • 5 of 5

I had seen the photos on VRBO and I felt pretty sure about what to expect. What impressed me was Rich's communication and willingness to be flexible with our travel itinerary. The view was just spectacular and, with the golf cart, we could do whatever we wanted the whole weekend. Awesome!

Island Epic Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

My family and I very much enjoyed this Hamilton Cove Unit. The kitchen was well stocked and the views from both the living and bedroom...epic! Having a golf cart on Catalina Island is also a huge plus. We enjoyed some of the amenities in the Hamilton Cove community as well. Catalina Island holds a very special place in our hearts and the Hamilton Cove community makes already a great destination, even better. The bed was comfortable and we enjoyed bringing our own DVD movies after a great day of R&R. Host is very easy going too. All around A+!
