First of all let me say that Avalon is very hit or miss in the hotel department. You can stay in a broken down dump for the same price as a nice place, so research carefully. Everyone will also tell you that Hamilton Cove is the place to stay because it is clean and nice and your condo comes with a golf cart. Well, you need that golf cart because it is out in the boonies. Also, Hamilton Cove is not air conditioned, which may not be an issue most of the year but it was when I was there.

This Edgewater was very nice. Clean, air conditioned and you can't beat the location. Our particular room had an amazing view, was relatively quiet considering it faced the walking street and was the weekend, and had a charming bathroom with original tile work and a built in vanity that made you think you might have been transported back to the 20s. The only recommendations I would make are that brown and beige are not very beachy colors for carpet and furniture...and having curtains or blinds to shut the light out would be better.

The staff were awesome! I left a USB cable and they made the effort to call to see if I wanted it back, which is above and beyond in my opinion. They offer beach chairs if you want them and they have a tiny continental breakfast service in the morning and cookies in the evening. It is very homey and nice.

Room tip: The garden suites have the best views!

Greetings from The Edgewater!
Thank you for your kind words! We are very happy that you had a great time on the island and apologize in the delay for responding to your review! Thank you for your interior decor recommendation. We went the lighter route but unfortunately furniture, curtains and carpeting did not have as long of a lifespan! The look is trying to remain in keeping with an Art Deco feel.

Thank you again for choosing The Edgewater and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

All our best,
The Edgewater Team

Went to the Island of Romance where I met my husband and enjoy our 45th Wedding Anniversary. The room was decorated congratulating us for that many years. They took very good care of us and always wanted to know if we needed anything. Enjoyed a cup of coffee and a roll or muffin each morning of our stay. The room was clean and the bed very comfortable. We plan on going back!

A great get away. The room was very nice with a view of the harbor. The staff were excellent. Very helpful and informative about things to do around the island. Will be returning in about a month for another week-end visit. Would recommend it to anyone.
