After spending last week in Hamilton Cove, I can see why there are so many mixed reviews on this site. Your experience will depend entirely on your unit. Building number 18 is brand new and gorgeous from top to bottom. If you do your research, look at the photos, and pay a reasonable price, you will not be disappointed. Our... More

Delayed review, but better late than never. We stayed at Hamilton Cove September 2013. The trip was perfect. Our stay was right when all the big crowds have left for the summer. The unit was beyond beautiful. Newly renovated and beautifully decorated. Traveling with 5 adults and a 1 1/2 year old. Once we set up some chairs to keep... More

I had heard this was the place to stay, but after spending a long weekend on Catalina, I have to say that Hamilton Cove is the LAST place you want to stay. We were two families in 2-33, which was a trip back into the late 70s/early 80s. Decor was very dingy and outdated. I've actually never seen a micro... More

Dear Guest, We were concerned after reading your comments, so we paid a visit to Villa 233 at Hamilton cove. I have to admit that the microwave is an older model, but works fine. You did fail to mention that these owners have recently purchased a new dining set, the L-shaped sofa/sofa sleeper is fairly new, the extra living room... More

The condo was not as clean as one would expect (in this price range). -Dishes were dirty -Hairs in kitchen and bedroom linens -Bay windows were not cleaned (this is your ocean view) The kitchen was not stocked with ANY basics, except for pots/pans/dirty...

The view is good, but so are many other units, for the same price, that provide so many more amenities than Unit 11-52. The golf cart has no enclosure, there is only one television in the living room and none in either bedrooms, there is no internet, and although the management company will suggest using Wi-Fi from units close by,...

We rented two condos next to each other this summer. There were 7 grandchildren and three adults. This was grandma's time to have all her kids together at the same time since half live in California and the other half in Illinois. The condos were clean and perfect for the family. Grandma got to cook for her grandkids, play at... More

We booked several condos for my daughters wedding and simply loved each one! Being the mother of the bride I scored the best one with spectacular views of the condos below as well as the beach and ocean. I wish we had more time to spend in the condo but I was busy with activities. The golf cart is a... More

So if you are looking for a perfect vacation in california, you've found it!!! Nothing can beat Hamilton Cove for accommodations on Catalina. Check in was very simple. When you get off the boat go directly to the office. Don't call to ask if it's ready, just show up there. We stored our luggage for 6 bucks a bag and... More

I have rented at Hamilton Cove for the past 15 years. This condo is a great location on the top floor of building 10. I have rented twice before in this same building. Unfortunately the inside of this condo needs a serious cleaning, the linens were stained, the pullout sofa in the living room was filthy, stained and the bed... More

After saving all my mad money we finally made it here. And my first thoughts when we arrived were no way but its exactly like the pictures and even better if possible. This place had everything that you needed but a potatoe peeler. Which became a our joke. The view was amazing the bed super comfortable. The kitchen completely remodeled... More
