WOW !! Great Location
I would give this place 6 stars if I could. Was there for the weekend, great views, and great accommodations. We had the 2 bedroom 2 bath unit, with a great view. Modern appliances, well stocked kitchen, golf cart.
John and I have stayed at Hamilton Cove over ten times and have had a great time, with a fantastic view, and superior amenities. I highly recommend! --- Terry Hamilton.
