Avalon house description

The GRISHAM HOUSE: AVALON'S ONLY WATERFRONT BEACH HOUSE!

You can throw a stone into the water from our fantastic 60 foot wrap around balcony deck with spectacular and sweeping 270 degree views overlooking the beach, the town, the harbor and the ocean! There is no finer spot to sit and people watch or relax with a glass of wine. 2 night minimum. (3 nt minimum in summer)
PLEASE CHECK THE CALENDAR FOR AVAILABILITY BEFORE SUBMITTING AN INQUIRY. Also we will not be booking new reservations for summer 2015 until after Labor Day.
This family owned vacation home offers you the BEST location in town; only steps away from the sand and swimming, shopping, restaurants and bars and all the recreational activities and sightseeing tours. We are also a very short, 2 minute level stroll from where the ferry docks.

Our property is 3 stories (sorry, no elevator) and is a classic, older but comfortable beach house. On the ground floor are a couple retail clothing shops, a jet ski rental, an ocean rafting company and a psychic. The middle floor (14 steps up) is our larger vacation rental (vrbo #65480) and this unit is on the top (3rd) floor 14 additional steps up from the middle unit.

During the day we are right in the middle of all Avalon has to offer; hustling and bustling with activity. And virtually everyone who takes the ferry walks right past our property, so if you are a people watcher or enjoy seeing all the activity in the harbor; you'll be in heaven. At night however, after the 'day trippers' go home and the businesses close, everything calms down around us.

This unit is like a small 1 bedroom apartment and offers a separate bedroom with queen bed, a bathroom w/ stall shower and a small living room. This unit is ideal for a romantic couple getaway or a couple with 1 child. There is a fully contained kitchen with newer appliances. In the living room is a TV with cable; DVD/VCR player and iPod player. 2 sets of sliding glass doors open onto the LARGE WRAPAROUND DECK WITH SPECTACULAR 270 DEGREE VIEWS. For eating there are 3 bar stools at the breakfast counter plus a table on the front deck. There is a gas BBQ on the side deck. BBQ and dine on the deck while you enjoy spectacular views. We also have free wireless internet access for your laptop computer.

WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE? Our property may be older, but it offers you the BEST location; the BEST beachfront view decks in town; and the very BEST vacation rental value for your money. We get many repeat guests year after year; you'll see why!

NOTE: The middle floor offers four bedrooms and three baths and sleeps 8. (See vrbo #65480). Book both units for an extended family vacation or 4-5 couple getaway.

NO PETS and NO SMOKING. 3 Night MINIMUM in Summer (and 2 nt minimum all other times). Sorry, we do NOT have a golf cart. Minimum age limits apply and young adults renting on their own must be 23 years of age.
