Beautiful, Stunning, Gorgeous, Spectacular, I could go on and on. I do not normally take the time to write a review but this condo deserved one. My husband and I had the best vacation at this well appointed condo. The view right as you opened the front door was amazing. If you needed something this condo already had it. Keep... More

We checked out many of the villas online and chose 1-76 based on reviews and pictures. The reviews were spot on, the pictures did not do any justice to the view you get, spectacular! This unit has not been remodeled, looks early 70's, lots of wood in the bathroom, a little strange. But very clean and well layer out for... More

We love visiting Catalina and we love staying at Hamilton Cove. However, we had some issues when we arrived at unit 2/48. When we first arrived, we noticed hair on the bathroom floor and shower. I then went and pulled a bowl out of the cupboard and noticed it still had food on it. I then pulled out some more... More

Dear Guest, You are correct in that, had you called CIVR, we would have sent housekeeping to take care of the dish ware. Unfortunately, the hard water in Avalon can cause some dishwasher issues. Our housekeepers are generally good at catching these things, but apparently missed it this time. It sounds as though the previous renters used the dish washer... More

We reserved # 245. It was filthy, stained furniture , broken window treatments, TV on floor, and no cell service. The rental company was worse! Hamilton Cove Real Estate is awful!!

The unit was beautiful and previous reviews complained of stairs but I didn't think there were that many. Right in the heart of the complex it was a perfect location. The amount you pay for a vacation rental, I expect some necessities in the kitchen. Pots and pans were stainless and the average renter is not likely an expert in... More

The reason for a very good rating and not a excellent rating all due to dirty silverware and wine glasses with lipstick remaining in the cupboards and in the drawer. The rules are very specific that when you leave the condo you are to leave it clean with all the silverware etc put away. Obviously the cleaning service was there... More

We stayed 4 nights/5 days at Hamilton Cove in late June. The property itself is very nice and very well maintained. Every day the maintenance people were out painting, cutting the lawn, raking, etc….very clean place. Onsite there is a pool, beach access, tennis courts, workout room and put-put golf course. Security guards were very perceptive, which made us feel... More
