Avalon house description

Catalina Island known as the island of romance is the perfect choice for visitors looking to escape and experience the warmth of a small-town in a fun island destination. Catalina has a year-round Mediterranean climate with warm sunny days and cool evening breezes. Fun activities include scuba, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, golf, parasailing, shopping, or just relaxing on the beach.

Our Catalina home is a wonderfully warm and sunny cottage just 2 blocks from the beach, shops, boating, and other entertainment. It is located on “the flats” in the center of town for an easy walk to all destinations. It has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and sleeps up to 4 people. The home is decorated with a cheerful Catalina/beach theme. The home is available for a two night quick get-away for an extended rejuvenation stay.

                        I stayed here with my 2 kids, and it worked out perfectly. The owner let me check in early, when my boat came in , due to the house being empty that day. Previous renter left the day before. The house was an easy walk to the pier, shops, and restaurants. Towels, bedding, and the house itself was clean and equipped to cook easy meals. We were out on the water everyday until dark, so we just had a small breakfast there, and came back to sleep. Quiet street, and an accommodating owner make this a great choice for staying on Catalina. I will definitely stay there again.

                        This cottage is perfectly located a few blocks up from the beach, shops and restaurants. A brief walk into town, but far enough away from the noise and hustle and bustle. It is a quaint cottage, and the photographs accurately depict the cottage and what it has to offer. The cottage is clean and well-maintained. We loved our stay in Catalina and this cottage contributed a lot to our overall positive experience. We want to rent it again and will recommend this property to anyone we know who is planning a trip to Catalina.

                        The inside pictures of this cottage are accurate. There are no longer any plants outside in front of the cottage, but there are blinds on the windows. We had a very pleasant stay and were able to bring our small dog. There are not a lot of rentals in Avalon that allow pets. This was also probably the best rate in Avalon (VRBO and CIVR). It was comfortable and clean. The only negative was no internet. Internet access inside rentals on Catalina is not standard. Internet is available at some local coffee shops, but dogs are not allowed at most eating establishments, even outdoors.

                        We stayed there for two days, this was my fourth time staying here. The location is great, the house is cute, typical cottage by the beach. We did have ONE problem when we arrived, and that was getting the previous people which had stayed there to leave!! or rather come and get their items out of the house....But it was no fault of the owner, and she tried to be helpful in fixing the problem, The place is comfortable and in the perfect location, I love this place wich is why we keep coming back.

                        Perfect location for walking to the beach, restaurants, grocery, and shops. The house had more than enough room for the 4 of us with 2 queen beds and bunk beds. The house was clean and neat with fresh linens and towels. The neighbors were quiet but friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back.

                        I have to admit I was kinda scared to stay here after reading the previous reviews, but it turned out to be a nice surprise. It was a close walk to all activities. A little Von's Express was just down the street, great for buying bottled waters and stuff. Everything was very clean... Fresh sheets, plenty of clean towels. The beds were very comfortable. I suppose it would be a pain if you were going to do lots of cooking, because there is no dishwasher and the stove is smallish, but who likes to cook on vacation right? There is also a bunk bed set in a very small room, but this came in handy for my kids who prefer to have their own beds. I didn't see any stains on the furniture, and the couch and love seat were comfy. All in all it was a great stay, and I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

                        The house is great, it has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Avalon. If you are looking for 5 star luxury and big tv's and modern appliances to cook your own meals this is not the place for you, but if you want a cozy base to explore the island this house is great! It's not at all dirty or filthy as previous reviewers said. The linens and towels were clean and everything worked perfectly well. The location is really good and Debora was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Unfortunately it rained almost our entire stay, so we will definitely go back and stay here again!

                        I did not realize anyone would rent a "home" that was so nasty. It had dirty floors, carpets were filthy, couch coverings were filthy, bedding had stains all over, bathrooms fixtures leaked non stop, gaps in doors, windows would not close all the way, nor lock, cat hair everywhere. Dishes were dirty, I would not recomend this place to anyone. It was just plain discusting!! I would give this zero stars, but VRBO does not give you that option. This is absolutely that worst rental I have EVER seen.

                        Owner response: I stayed at the house one week before and neither I nor my guest were aware of any cat hair.
