  • 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."

  • Summer Vacation with the Family

    "This was a beautiful place, with a great view, great for a family. My family and I had a great time on vacation. The only down side was, there was no phone reception, no WIFI and no cable."

  • Perfect little paradise

    "We had such a great time in Marty's charming, well equipped house. The bed and couches were all very comfortable. It is conveniently located a block from the beach, shops and restaurants. His toy closet full of bikes, kayaks, chairs, floaties etc. was amazing and can't wait to use them next time. Marty was prompt in returning my texts too. Definitely booking for next year!"

  • Great Place! Great Time!

    "Four of us stayed to celebrate my oldest son's graduation from UCLA. My two son's 22 and 21, myself and my husband's sister (unfortunately my husband could only stay for the graduation). That gives me a perfect excuse to come back with my husband! Location, location, location! There is not a house with a better location. You can easily walk every where. We rented golf carts one afternoon just to see more of the island. It was really fun. Now to the house. It is exactly as promoted. It's old and well loved. It was like staying at a friend's beach house. Not a rental property. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the bathrooms seemed somewhat updated. We were caught a little off guard that the door into the house leads into a bedroom but had no problem with that. We did not take advantage of the kitchen (too many good restaurants to try) but it had everything you need. Spent a lot of time on the deck, people watching and playing games. The deck was my favorite part of the house. There were people staying in the apartment above and did not even notice they were there. No problem with privacy if that is a concern. Huntington Beach has been my favorite beach to visit in Southern California not anymore. Wish we would have visited Avalon and the Grisham House sooner. This was our middle stop on our southern California vacation and everyone's favorite. It was a perfect way to spend great time with my son before he moves to India for the next step in his life. Thank you Randy! We'll be back"
