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!! I would NEVER deal with them again. Bart is rude, arrogant and hard to deal with. Thankfully we were able to get all of our money back. I was...

I'm sorry to hear your experiences at Hamilton Cove did not exceed your expectations. Catalina Island Vacation Rentals represents several dozen properties in Hamilton Cove, although we do not manage the property you stayed in. We hope that you will give the Villas at Hamilton Cove another chance and give us a call the next time you come to Catalina...

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...

Thanks for taking the time to write about your stay. We're sorry that you found the cooking set up difficult. I don't believe we've run into this issue in the past. It sounds like you did have fun, regardless. Please do come and stay with us again, CIVR Management

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...

Dear Julia, I read your review and am not sure if you stayed in one of our properties, or not. Catalina Island Vacation Rentals (CIVR) manages a large number of Vacation Home Villas in Hamilton Cove. CIVR is open 7 days a week and we do have a 24 hour emergency line. You are correct, in that we do ask...

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...

ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!! Of course Catalina, but 2-27 was AMAZING!!! (I've stayed in Hamilton Cove many times before and let's just say, some units REALLY need to updated !!! and some should even be fumigated) >>>THIS PLACE has been beautifully remodeled....the kitchen & bathrooms were like something in a magazine!

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.

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.

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...

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...

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,...
