  • 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."

  • Ideal home from home in great location!

    "My husband and I visited from Scotland for 3 weeks and chose this apartment as it was close to relatives in Santa Monica and also provided a stable base for us to explore other parts of California without having to pack and unpack constantly on our travels. We were a bit nervous before arriving as hadn't been in Santa Monica before and were worried about the location and how we would get about without hiring a car as neither of us wanted to drive during our holiday. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect place to stay! The apartment is 5 mins walk to a quiet part of the beach, 2 mins walk to Main St with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants and 15 mins walk either direction to Santa Monica main town or Venice Beach. There was a local, cheap bus service 2 mins from the apartment taking us to different areas of Santa Monica and surrounding areas which made it easy for us to link in with family and friends while there. The apartment itself is on a quiet residential street with lovely neighbours and it felt really safe, even when walking home at night. There is a nautical theme throughout the apartment which made it really quirky and there was everything we could want, including comfortable furnishings, a cooking area and outside seating area which is ideal for leisurely breakfasts before setting out for the day. There is also an easy to use washer dryer which is ideal for anyone staying more than a few weeks who is restricted by airline baggage weights. Devon, the landlady, also took the time to check in with us during our stay to make sure we were ok and gave tips on how to find out more about the area. I will be highly recommending this apartment to anyone planning to visit the area and will definitely be looking to book again when we return to Santa Monica in the future. Can;t praise it highly enough."

  • Wonderful views and a house full of light and good energy.

    "Just arrived home from a wonderful month in this super house. We will so miss our time in LA and our stay in this lovely house. We enjoyed everything about it. We arrived in the dark and thought the sight of the twinkling lights of the city below us from our windows were fantastic enough, but waking up to the sight of the Hollywood sign and the Observatory took our breath away. We even enjoyed our food shopping trips to Gelson's and Trader Joes. Everything is so convenient here, all the usual LA tourist spots, places to eat and shop (great shopping Malls). Wish we stayed longer. Felt like home from home. So want to come back next year. You wont be disappointed!"

  • Very Happy Visit. We would definitely stay at Rick's Home Again

    "My wife thought it was a man's home. Brilliant large very comfortable King Size bed. Took a while to discover and operate the Dimmer Switches. No plug for the main bath. Good connection between garage and kitchen. Jacuzzi in garden no operation. Several of the rooms in the house we did not use. Our deposit was repaid very quickly. Yes a good experience and happy memories John Ratcliff England"
