We will always do our very best to ensure your stay at Hamilton Cove is comfortable and memorable.
Here's what some of our happy guests have to say:

“This may be the most beautiful spot on the Pacific Coast in the U.S. Wow! Hamilton Cove is unsurpassed. A little outside of town with all the benefits. Quiet. Secluded. Peaceful. I loved it. The local museum and Buffalo Tour are a must. I love everything nautical so pick your poison. All good. Quality home in a special place.”

– Geoffrey, Villa 97

“By far the best customer service around. Hands down. We will be referring all of our friends. It was an amazing trip. Amber and her team which appeared to be the entire island really make that place special the entire island works together to ensure customer services is at the highest level.”

– Dan, Villa 33

“Worth every penny! Our stay in Catalina Island was made extra special in this beautiful home with a million dollar view. The go cart made our stay so easy and smooth to go wherever we need to be. The heated pool and jacuzzi was the perfect night cap. We stayed at Amber’s place for 4 days and 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer!”

– Jennifer, Villa 33

“This villa is the place to stay. It is incredibly clean, close to town, and offers some of the best views on the island. The complimentary golf cart is extremely helpful, and the service wouldn’t be matched. If you want the best experience on the island, stay here.”

– Michael, Villa 97

“This is the best rental in Hamilton Cove. We loved the two decks, high ceilings, ocean themed decor, and quick access to the pool and jacuzzi. The bed was very comfortable and had a great view. The bathroom was huge and had a terrific shower. The kitchen was well stocked. And you don’t have to climb steps to get to the unit. We loved our stay here and highly recommend it.”

– Cathryn, Villa 97

“We had a wonderful stay at this spectacular condo. The views were amazing and the expansive terrace let us spread out and enjoy different views of the bay, harbor and ocean. The condo is extremely well supplied with everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Amber, our host, responded quickly to questions and was extremely helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend staying here for a rewarding experience.”

“Great stay. Comfortable home with incredible views from living area, bedroom and balcony. Safe and quiet neighborhood with lovely views all around. 10 min ride to all the shops and restaurants was a scenic drive with provided golf cart. Super convenient to Descanso beach club and its activities.”

“This 2-bedroom was so nicely decorated and had all the amenities we could want. A lovely stovetop/oven, dishwasher, barbecue, french-door refrigerator, and a great view to boot!

We entered no problem with clear instructions to access the wi-fi and were quickly able to watch television complete with Netfix, Hulu and all the cable channels.

Thank you for a great stay for our daughter’s wedding!”

“I will absolutely 💯 recommend this property! Amber was such an awesome host, quickly responds to any questions or requests, the villa was very clean fully stocked and the views are amazing, also loved the decor .I went with my family, we enjoyed playing tennis, the playground, private beach and just walking around Hamilton Cove was refreshing. We had so much fun, we just wanted to extend our stay.

“We loved Catalina and these accommodations were perfect for us! So clean, well decorated and the views are stunning. We had a pod of dolphins swim by in the morning. We just loved it and cannot wait to return.”

“We really enjoyed our week here. Communication with Amber and Veronica prior to check in was excellent and found our way into the property easily. The view is insane, Hamilton Cove is a slice of paradise and the unit was beautiful. We had everything we needed including clubs/golf balls for the mini course, rackets/balls for tennis, plus everything else to make meals. We ran into a few minor issues that Veronica went above and beyond to resolve for us, things happen and how she dealt with it is well appreciated! We are already missing afternoons on the balcony.

Thank you for allowing us into your home 🤙🤙”

– Ed S., Villa 15

“Catalina was such an amazing place to vacation. The weather was beautiful, the trip over was so easy, and it was very relaxing. Staying in Hamilton Cove made it even better. You are just far enough way from town to feel like you are in a secluded resort, but conveniently close to go in for dinners and shopping. The condo was beautiful, had amazing views from every room, and was so accommodating for the whole family. They have everything you need to enjoy all the fantastic amenities. This was our first trip, but we will definitely be back!

– Megan C., Villa 15

Reviewer Comments:

You will not be disappointed… Within 15 mins upon arrival I tried to extend my stay, however the next next few nights were already reserved. I could wake up to this view everyday for the rest of my life.. This will likely turn into a yearly family vacation.

– Jaques C., Villa 33

“This was a cozy beautiful and safe place to spend time as a family. Private and quiet, yet a short drive to downtown for the full experience. A great host and a great place!”

– Carlos, Villa 33

“Amber was very good at communication. She made the whole process easy and enjoyable, we will be booking again soon.

– Justin C., Villa 97

“What an amazing island, little town and condo in Hamilton Cove!

The condo had everything we needed. Plus all the comforts of home. I asked the property manager to pick up some things at the grocery store for our arrival to surprise everyone, and she didn’t even hesitate before saying no problem!

Highly highly recommend this condo!!
