  • 5 Star View but Lacking Luxury Inside

    "The view was so incredible, it takes your breath away! Access to the balcony from both bedrooms and living area with nice high top tables and chairs and sitting chairs. Plenty of seating for more than 4. We selected this condo based on reviews so renter beware! It is not what I would consider luxury. I get banged up furniture in a rental, but the chairs in the living room are very uncomfortable, the kitchen lighting is poor and it is not well supplied and the hall bathroom is the only one with a shower (this is mentioned in the description but easily overlooked). There were many other minor inconveniences and a terrible smell in the kitchen from the garbage disposal, but the location, wonderful beds, large flat screens in both bedroom and living area, coupled with the view made those things tolerable. I would definitely recommend this area (Hamilton Cove) but unless I knew for sure the owner had taken care of some of the problems I would not rent this unit again. Having a golf cart there is a wonderful amenity ( we went into town daily and cab fare would have really added up) as we found out they rented for $40 an hour! They are very fun to get around in, and golf carts are the main transportation for the island. Hamilton Cove has a small pool and hot tub and tennis courts, even a small beach area. We loved Catalina Island and will go back."

  • Perfect Summer Home

    "We loved our week at the Summer Love Cottage! The home is very well stocked and the decor is perfect for a beach home. The set up is very spacious for an Avalon home. We had a fun and relaxing family vacation at the Summer Love Cottage!"

  • What a great house!!

    "This was our family's first trip to Avalon, and we loved it. A critical part of our wonderful experience was staying at this house. SO highly recommended! The house is incredibly charming (built in 1924, with many original features) home looking over the harbor and the iconic Avalon casino. It is very spacious and comfortable. We were 9 adults, and had plenty of room to be together while also having privacy in the bedrooms. The kitchen and dining room and living room flow together very easily. The views are AMAZING. Location: The house could not have a better location, right above the harbor yet very private, and only 1/2 mile from the Avalon Casino. In between is the very special town that is Avalon, with shops and restaurants, ice cream and bakeries, and a feeling of stepping back in time to a gentler place. Everything is easy walking distance from the house. The House: The view from three sides of the house is spectacular, day and night. It was wonderful to wake up and watch the harbor come alive sitting in the living room with a cup of coffee and to enjoy the twinkling lights in Avalon in the evening. The kitchen is fully stocked, clean, and everything works well. The five bedrooms are all VERY comfortable. The three bathrooms had no issues with our large group, and the owner thoughtfully included soaps and extra toilet paper. The stairs: This is really not an issue. I was worried before booking, given past reviews and that my husband and I are nearing 60. Do not worry about these stairs, they are not challenging at all. Finally, the cost per night may seem daunting (it was to me), but it is actually a bargain. I did a lot of research into the options for hotels and B&Bs for our family trip. This house was economical in comparison, sight unseen. Now that we have been there, I can only say this: Lucky you if you have the opportunity to rent this house, as the experience is priceless."

  • Great Roof Deck and Location

    "Had a fun weekend with friends on Eucalyputs. The roof deck was such a great place to hang out and plan the day on Catalina and using the dumbwaiter is fun. Close to town so you can walk to dinner and all the fun stuff in town. Also close enough to walk up to the hiking trails, so take advantage of that. Plenty of space for sleeping, not the ideal place to cook, but we weren't interested in cooking anyways. Would definitely return to this place! Thanks!"
