Where to Stay | Santa Catalina Island, California

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

Santa Catalina Island is a small island off the coast of Southern California. The only incorporated city on the island is Avalon, which is where I stayed during my visit. Avalon is a very small but charming community.

Since Avalon is a huge tourist destination, there are many options for places to stay including hotels and vacation rentals. The vacation rentals include small cottage style homes in Avalon or villas in Hamilton Cove. I chose to stay in a villa at Hamilton Cove, which is a short golf-cart drive out of the main part of Avalon.

Hamilton Cove is a private, gated community that includes a pool, tennis courts, beach volleyball courts, bbq's and picnic tables, and a small golf course. The villas range from 1 to 3 bedrooms and include the use of a golf-cart to get around town.

We stayed in villa 4-12, which I highly recommend if you head to Catalina. Our villa had 2 nice sized bedrooms with king sized beds and 2 full bathrooms, including a huge soaking tub and amazing shower heads!
