What Past Guests Are Saying
As soon as our taxi dropped us off, we knew we would enjoy this location.
Then when you open the front door...all I can say is spectacular views! They don't get any better than this unit 3-19. There are views from every room. I loved waking up with the view of the sunrise right from the bed. We very much enjoyed morning coffe on the outdoor lani and also having our evening wine there. The only thing we wished for was a BBQ. We love to cook, but we did fine. The added plus was having the golf cart to go all over, what fun that was! Although it did need some maintenance.
We are definatly looking forward to returning sometime in the future.
beautiful & relaxing
We stayed here for my 40th birthday and fell in love with the place! The views are excellent from every room and the kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. We loved our weekend here and would love to come again!
We have been traveling to Catalina for the past 12 years every February. For the last 6 we have stayed in Hamilton Cove. This is the second year we have stayed at 3-19! Although all condo's are awesome (view, stay, golf cart, activities, etc.) this Condo is By-far our Favorite!!! I highly recommend as a a week/end away with a loved one, or a girls weekend out! The place sleeps 4 comfortably and is extremely peaceful but stocked for entertaining as well! We will continue to visit this condo for this years to come!
stayed 4 days while attending the 2012 Jazz Festival and loved the accomodations. This is our 4th unit rented in Hamilton Cove and thought this location was one of the bests. The kitchen was stocked with everything we need, nice having the laundry facility right in the unit and loved the privated balcony although would have liked access to the balcony from the bedroom. The golf cart was ok but definately could have used a little upkeep.
Awesome!! We loved it here.
I must first highly commend and thank Civr for providing great customer service. Our ferry was cancelled the day we were scheduled to check in, but Civr understood and let us move our reservation back a day. We were so appreciative that they were willing to work with us. A huge thanks to the great staff there!!!
Now, this villa was excellent! The Hamilton Cove location was great because it was so quiet and very private. The views from every window were phenomenal!! It was a cute property that was well cleaned and a perfect size for our romantic getaway. Only about 20 steps to the front door, and the golf cart that came with the property was fun and made getting to town easy. I would go back here in a jiff!
Excellent Villa With amazing Views
Let me start off by saying my husband and I had an amazing get away at the villa. We stayed at the villa for 3 night. The view was amazing, the villa was immaculate and comfy. It was the perfect vacation to get some R&R.; Waking up in bed to see the sunrise over the ocean each morning was breathtaking.We can't wait to go back.
Joe M. and family
My wife and I, and our two kids arrived Catalina Island with hopes of having a great vacation. Once we walked into our villa, we knew we would have memories of a lifetime! First of all, the view could not get any better. To start our day on the balcony with a cup of coffee was paradise! The villa was well furnished and amenities in the kitchen and throughout the home was plenty. The golf cart that was provided with our villa was great and without it, the trip would not have been fun. Not to mention the money we saved using it instead of a taxi. Our trip to Catalina was better than we expected and we will definitely be back!
The best vacation experience ever. Check-in was a breeze, the condo was bigger and better than we expected. The private balcony was wonderful, although I was told that people are generally very respectful of each others space on the shared balconies, we didn't want to take the chance on that, as we were looking for a quiet time. One stop at Von's for a few items and we were good for the week. We used the coffee maker, the microwave and the George Foreman grill and all worked perfectly. At first I thought the blinds would not be to our liking, but as it turned out, we loved being awakened by the gorgeous sunrise each morning. The condo had every amenity except laundry detergent- but who would want to spend any of their time on Catalina washing clothes? On this trip, we played golf, took the Blanche W to Two Harbors for sunset, saw the flying fish, took the bus tour of the interior and saw lots of buffalo. Would recommend armstrong's catch of the day (they are closing in October), the bacon at Jack's, and the tacos and margaritas at the Sand Trap. We have already booked for next year and only wish we could come back sooner!

What a View
Loved being in a Villa with a great view of the Ocean.
Golf Cart is a Plus
Very helpful staff at check in and check out
Awesome getaway ! We watched the moon rise over the water from the bedroom. Very romantic. We have recommended to several friends.
Ask for Phil @ Civr. Great Customer Service. He even gave us a lift to HC and saved us the co$t of a taxi ride. When is the last time you had great customer service ? It's rare these days.
Huntington Beach, CA
My wife and i stayed in Hamilton Cover Villa 3-19 for our mini-moon! We couldnt have asked for a nicer place. Much better than a hotel. It was like we were at our vacation house. The views were spectacular and the weather was just as good. Stay in this unit!
Tony & Rose
St Louis & Bristol, R.I.
Island paradise so close & a world away!
Unbelievable views,luxurious comfortable condo home. Civr staff went above & beyond & every detail was easily handled. My girlfriend was involved in a real estate transaction on the east coast while we were there and Civr staff helped with fax & email to her realtor. We are so grateful for all their help and will be contacting them for a return visit soon!!!
We stayed at Hamilton Cove and Dove & snorkled right at the private beach there, enjoyed the pool & spa and felt very much "at home". The best was the night sky view from the balcony, so many stars!! Can't wait to return.
Omg. My bf and I came for a weekend of relaxation. We couldn't have picked a better place. First of all, I can't say enough good things about Catalina Vacation Rentals (CVR). They were beyond nice accomodating for both an early check in and late check out. This place was so much bigger than I had imagined. The pictures really don't do this place justice. We spent most of our time in 3-19. Just a few stops at Vons and we were set! Thank you sooo much! We can't wait to return!!
Inspired by our 3 day stay!
Our Villa had a beautiful view ,was quiet and we loved every miniute of our stay. We felt renewed and completly relaxed and plan on returning next month for more of this paradise!!
Live jazz, 3-19 and an unobstructed view of the Ocean! Great!
My husband and I have been going to Catalina Island for jazz for 5 years now and this was our first year staying at Hamilton Cove! We will not stay anywhere else from now on.
First off I must say that the folks at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals make it sooo easy. Check in and out are a breeze. Oh I'd say it takes all of 1-2 minutes to check in and about the same to check out, if that! They are very friendly, quick to respond to needs etc.
Now about our unit. Well, a view from every room including the bathroom is a good place to start! A private outdoor living room was just about my favorite place. Every night after the concert my husband and I sat there, had a glass of wine and just reflected...sooo nice! Not all of the units have a private balcony. Everything you need is in the unit! All kinds of modern cooking gadgets, flat screen televisions with blue ray, energy efficient washer/dryer. I just can't put everything here but trust me (we've been to plenty of nice places), this is a great place to just relax and take a load off. Very romantic too of course! We have to get tour the lovely grounds next year but we were so pleased with the unit itself that we didn't get out very much!
Lovely decor and you can tell the owners take pride in their place.
Unit spacious and comfortable. No problems encountered
Relaxing and very accomodating.
Beautiful unit. Great amenities! Love the use of the golf cart. Will probably never stay in avalon again. Quiet, peaceful. Only negative was the TV system was a little difficult to figure out - simplify or leave detailed instructions. Staff was very attentive. My daughter left her beloved teddy bear behind. The staff quickly found it and sent it to us!!! Thank you!!! We loved our stay @ Hamiliton Cove and the unit was beautiful!
Blue Springs, MO
We found heaven - it's 24 miles off the SoCal coast.
Wife and I stayed with our daughters (9 and 5) at 3-19. The place had a view too grand for words. The condo had every amenity we needed and then some. Coffee on the patio overlooking the blue Pacific. Cooked a meal and had a family dinner overlooking the blue Pacific. Snorkeling on Descanso beach. Zip-line tour. Fresh seafood. Sunrise from the mountanous mainland over the water. The golfcart that comes with the rental was so cool. Grocery shopping at Vons. Taking pictures of an island in the sun. Swimming in the heated pool (it gets cool at night and early day). Truely, unbelievable! Not bad for a fireman and his wife from Missouri.
Would stay in this unit again
3-19 is very well furnished especially when compared to units that other family members were staying in. Nice patio, great view, inside laundry, and only one flight of stairs to the front door. Golf cart was one of the largest and appeared to be new.
Only negative was that it did not have a BBQ on the patio, but that aside this unit is a '10'
The view was so breathtaking and 3-19 was beautifully decorated.
My husband and I were very impressed with 3-19. When we walked in, we both were amazed at the spectacular view. It was better than I had expected. Every room was beautiful. The outdoor furniture was perfect for relaxing
and enjoying the view. It was quiet, peaceful and very romantic. I have shared the pictures of 3-19 to all our family and friends, and now they can't wait to go!
Orange County, California
Great place for the summer
A wonderful vacation spot for a few days with family!
Las Vegas, Nevada
Our stay at Hamilton Cove & on Catalina Island was simply perfect! Checking in was very easy. Catalina Island Vacation Rentals had everything ready! Checking out was also simple. Our cab driver picked us up promptly & returned our keys for us!
Saying that we were blown away when we walked into Villa 3-19 is an understatement. It was breathtaking...the views are amazing & the villa was spotless & very tastefully decorated. We loved the furniture! The kitchen was well stocked with everyday needs & utensils. The ipod player was also really handy.
We thoroughly enjoyed walking & driving the golf cart around Hamilton Cove. Taking advantage of the clubhouse gym, pool, & putting green was also a highlight.
The thing we liked the most about Hamilton Cove & Catalina was the laid back atmosphere. You truly feel like your in another country. It's nice to escape the hustle & bustle of city life. The golf cart was also a blast!!
The only recommendation that we had is to possibly add a second light blocking shade in the bedroom. The shades provided are lovely but block very little sunlight. And for those of us with little ones at home...it's nice to sleep in an extra hour while on a "mommy & daddy only" vacation! ;-)
Great place for a relaxed vacation
3-19 was terrific, fantastic views, awesome amenities.
space heaters tripped the fuse, CIVR was very responsive.
Redondo Beach, CA
We'd recommend and plan to return again
The recent remodel transformed 3-19 into a perfect pick for a weekend getaway. Everything is new, from bedding and towels, to brand new Sony 1080P big screen LCD TVs, free DSL wireless and a LG blu-ray player (which is setup on the wireless so you can watch YouTube videos), with local digital cable. All the complaints about the unit prior on the reviews have been completely fixed.
3-19 would be a bit of challenge for families with toddlers because of the owners items in the unit, the deep bathtub, etc. So just be mindful that the unit isn't the best for kids under 2 unless you want to spend all your time hovering over them.
Spectacular views and great hospitality
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in 3-19. The remodeling and renovations were a lot of fun - love that bed and those appliances in the kitchen. We've sampled several of the Hamilton Cove units, but I can't remember one with better views.
Those TV's were great, too, and we go great personal service to help us when we had trouble with a TV. I would suggest some instruction/information sheets to help out future visitors.
South Pasadena, CA
We picked 3-19 at Hamilton cove for our vacation rental in catalina, is because that our family stayed at the same unit before (2005) with very good impressions, but now it seemed that the house needs a lot of TLC,I read the review before i rented this time, but still chose it, and of course, we all wish that we were not that stubborn and better take other reviewer's opionion seriously.The major problem is the smell coming from either dirty rugs or old mattress, or aging linens, it smells mildrew, and we felt very uncomfortable; Non functioning items including broken patio chairs, golf cart, dryer etc, but the management service is still excellent, which makes up a lot...... Hamilton Cove is the best choice when vacationing in Catalina, but better choose unit carefully,in regards to their recent renovation and upgrades.
Needs some TLC
Hamilton Cove is a beautiful place. It offered our family everything we wanted and more. We will certainly be calling to book again next year for a longer time period (our kids had a hard time leaving). We did have several issues with the house. The dryer did not work, the light in the kitchen and out side front door area did not work, one of the patio chairs was broken, the bedroom had a terrible odor (musty) and the sofabed was hardly a bed...one of our kids had to sleep on the floor because is completely worn out. We loved the location of the unit (and the golf cart). If we knew for sure there will be new improvements we would definely ask for the same unit next year. These problems were very disappointing considering we look forward to our vacation wanting no problems, not to mention we also spent good money on staying there. We want to know that we still left Catalina with wonderful memories and the desire to return every year! We appreicate your offices help. Thank You!
We had a wonderful time in spite of the condo
We have stayed at Hamilton Cove many times and always have a wonderful time. This is the first time we had issues with the condo we stayed in, but it was not enough to stop us from returning or using Catalina Island Vacation Rentals again. The condition of the condo was not ideal, the patio furniture was broken and needed an umbrella, the refrigerator was disgusting, there was no cable TV and we missed the Dodgers!, the bed was very uncomfortable, the dishwasher leaked, the bathroom needs some major work. On the plus side, the view was fantastic, the staff was more than helpful when we had problems, the condo is in a quiet location, the pool area and surrounding areas are kept immaculate and the weather was great! We will definately be back and have recommended your company to many of our friends. We will watch for this condo to get updated and then we will try again!!!!
Great Ocean view villa
This vacation house was very nice. The Ocean views were spectaulr. Would highly recommend this villa. Use of privat golf cart was great. The live Jazz was outstanding, and second to none. Beautiful Island, best vacation we've ever had!!!
visitors from Santa Barbara
Santa Barbara, CA
Great view but .....
This unit could use upgrading. The bathroom needs considerable
repairs, the cothes dryer was not properly vented and dried very
slowly, there were no hangers in the closets for clothes, and there
was an inadequate supply of cooking utensils (pots, pans, etc.). In
additon, the golf cart did not have instructions for use and was in
need of minor repairs.
The positive things were: number of steps to unit, view from all
rooms was fantastic, clean, quiet.
Los Angeles CA
Beautiful Weather and Location
This home is perfect for a couple to get away for a weekend. Not
only do you get to use the amenities of Hamilton Cove, there is a
golf cart that goes with the property (a coveted item for anyone
going to Catalina!)
We loved the home we stayed in and suggest it for anyone looking
for a place to stay on Catalina. Hamilton Cove is a perfect spot
because you can go into town for dinner or nightlife yet escape the
party attitude and go back to your gated-community. For anyone
with a boat, there are also moorings right off of Hamilton Cove,
allowing you to dock your tender at the Hamilton Cove dock and
have your boat right outside your doorstep (depending upon the
time of year)
THe only downside to Hamilton Cove is that the Catalina Island
Rental office is located in-town. Make sure you go there before
paying a taxi to take you up the hill. There is no office on-site to
help you once you are up there.
Overall, the property AND the surrounding area is beautiful. You
will not be disappointed with the combination of serenity and
ability to go on expeditions from Hamilton Cove.
Long Beach, Ca
This was our first time staying at Hamilton Cove. Everyone had a great
time. We loved the views, the pool and Jacuzzi were great, and so was
the golf cart.
The condo we stayed in was large and clean however it had a lot of
stuff (knick knacks) in it. We were worried the kids might break
We will definately come back again, but look for a place that is more
I love Hamilton Cove....
Woodland Hills CA
I looove staying at Hamilton Cove. It makes your stay in Catalina much more enjoyable.
I do wish that the prices of the condos are a little less....
Nice view--unit could use a little work
We had a nice time staying in this unit. The view was wonderful and the unit was very spacious. However, there is no heat in the unit and in November, it can get pretty chilly at night. There was one small space heater that worked for only one day. The telephone also did not work during our stay and we had to call maintenance the second day to get hot water in the unit.
The decor is okay but a little over the top for a rental. I would recommend cleaning out the bathroom drawers a bit--we opened them and there were old brushes and used toothbrushes in them. This was very unpleasant.
I would recommend the Hamilton Villas property to a friend. I'm not sure if I would recommend this unit--if small things were done to the unit and it was a warmer time of year, it could be a very desirable unit.
A veiw of the Ocean from every room
We live in LA, so Catalina is easily accessable. We had been trying to get away from our busy schedules to just relax and enjoy, somewhere close that felt like an actual vacation. We had just that. Catalina is beautiful, peaceful, and the locals are freindly. Last time we visited was during the summer and stayed in a hotel. What a refreshing change this time was. Off season,and staying up in Hamilton Cove was wonderful. A large beautifully tiled apartment, where every window had an ocean view. We cooked and ate on the balcony in the ocean breeze. The villa has a jungle theme, nice but, a little overkill on the decorating, stuffed wild cats and all. Hamilton Cove is beautifully landscaped and cared for. We had fun hiking around the area. My husband and I were extemely pleased. We promised to do this more often, and are highly recommending this to freinds. Great getaway for fellow Californians.
Loved this Villa
Loved the size and location of this particular villa. Have stayed at Hamilton Cove Villa's before at a different smaller unit and preferred this one. The views were spectacular and the villa was nicely furnished and very comfortable. My only complaint would be the complimentary golf cart that came with this unit. It was very small and extremely finicky and slow - to the point of being dangerous at times. I know a golf cart is considered complimentary, but it really is a necessity if you stay at Hamilton Cove, otherwise you would be stuck at the resort unable to enjoy Avalon. Also, the cab fare to get from the boat to Hamilton Cove was around $25.00 - highway robbery!! I think that a complimentary shuttle should be provided for the guests of Hamilton Cove to get from the boat at arrival and back to the boat for departure. The cost to stay here is quite expensive compared to other locations and it is worth it, but a complimentary shuttle would make me more likely to return in the future as visitors should not have to pay so much just to get to the resort.
We will definately go back sometime in the future and would probably request this same villa if they have a new golf cart by then.
