Avalon house description

Our 'Summer Love Cottage', as we call it, offers the perfect seaside vacation for your family anytime of the year. Ideally located in the heart of Avalon on Claressa Avenue - just 3 flat blocks to the beach, restaurants and shops. In Summer, Winter, Fall or Spring, this vacation home is definitely all about location, rest and relaxation. Enjoy breakfast or a family barbeque on the huge deck while enjoying the ocean breeze. This is the place to get away from it all!

An off-season visit to Catalina Island will remind you of the way vacations used to be, long sunny days and cool evenings. Plenty of time to do as little or as much as you please. This is a perfect time to relax over-worked minds and bodies. Relax with a good book by the fireplace, stroll along the boardwalk, take a tour into the interior of the island or simply do nothing at all.

You will be walking distance from great restaurants, live music and shops in the heart of Avalon. If you're looking for activities, there is plenty to choose from-walking along the ocean, biking, renting a boat, fishing, shopping, zipline, renting a golf cart or seeing a movie in the historic Casino. Don't miss our famous Catalina Island chocolate covered banana!

The interior and exterior was completely remodeled with loving care in 2009 and 2010. All new distressed wood flooring and new living room furniture added in 2012 and a new 50' flat screen in the living room plus washer and dryer added in 2013 (washer/dryer available to guests staying 1 week or more). Our home features Stainless steel appliances and is beautifully decorated in a warm beach theme with colorful artwork and accessories throughout. You'll feel right at home with comfortable furniture and a kitchen that is well stocked with all the conveniences of home-you won't need a thing.

The first bedroom has a queen-sized bed with Tommy Bahama bedding and a memory foam mattress, the second bedroom has a twin bed with a trundle underneath which pops up, the third bedroom has a double bed with a memory foam mattress. There is also a queen sofa sleeper in the living room. Summer Love Cottage is completely furnished, including all linens.

Immaculate, cheery and bright with all the amenities and comforts of home to ensure that your vacation is extraordinary. To make it the perfect vacation, we just built a private and spacious deck which has a new Weber propane BBQ and Martha Stewart furniture to watch the amazing Catalina sunsets. Enjoy sunbathing on the chaise lounge or soak in the wonderful Southern California sunshine. There is seating for at least 12. The stairs are also gated at the top to protect the little ones. We thought of everything!

You'll enjoy the 50-inch flat screen TV HDTV/HDMI DVR w/Netflix capability (another flat screen tv is in the master bedroom, also with DVD/VCR), ceiling fans, cozy fireplace, IPOD music system, DVD, VCR, DSL high speed wireless internet (also available with a modem for Ethernet connection), 2 sets of older golf clubs and brand new full size washer/dryer (available for guests staying 1 week or more). There is a large selection of CDs from Buffett to Pavarotti and lots of DVD's and VCR movies, too.

We have the kids set with a Graco portacrib including bedding, rocker infant seat and plenty of toys, books and games to please every age.

Everything you need for the beach is here, too - 6 chairs, umbrella with unique sand grabber, sand toys for the kids and large towels-just bring sunscreen. Ready to get your toes sandy and make some special memories? Summer Love is waiting just for you. Come to Catalina and relax-you're on island time!

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Summer Love Cottage is the realization of a family dream to own a vacation home on Catalina Island. We all grew up coming here on family boats and even owned a mooring at one time but now are landlubbers! A mother-daughter team manages the home. The photo above is our winning entry in the 2013 July 4 golf cart parade!

                          Why the Owner Chose Avalon:
                          We loved the cottage look, the spacious front room for family gatherings and those big windows. They had been painted shut for decades and after much work, we were able to get them to slide open again!
