"oh my geepers! PERFECTION! seriously, we could not have had a better vacation!
we've rented on sumner for years, so we were just a bit hesitant about changing our catalina "home."
first, and almost foremost....LOCATION!
in the past, we have trudged through town, carrying all of our week long belongings, from the forever far, catalina express, to our rental on sumner. NOT THIS TIME!
i know it is stupid, but it was SO NICE, to only walk 3 minutes from ferry to home! entrance is "hidden" between two shops, but randy's email/directions were spot on, and we found it just fine.
CUTE little house! instant relaxation, as soon as we opened the door. new wood floors, CLEAN, INCREDIBLE wrap around deck/balcony!
fabulous breeze, throughout the house, when you open the front slider, and side slider.
you can see ALL of avalon, from basically any spot in the house.
we sat out on front balcony/deck for the majority of our stay; watching the MANY people arrive, the boats bobbing in the harbor, the incredible weather, the gorgeous sunsets, and we're amazed by how many people touched, kissed, and took pictures with, the bronze seal! :)
bedroom is small but for whatever reason (layout?) it was completely comfortable, and did not feel closed in.
i was concerned the golf cart/pedestrian traffic noise, from out front, would disturb our sleeping in....not a problem, at all! (we were bums, and slept in 'til 930 -10, every morning!)
kitchen had all we needed, although we ate out most every meal. (pancake cottage has the BEST breakfast!
good service, yummy food, portions are large so we shared...they close at 1:30 so don't miss out.)
plenty of towels & bedding, good water pressure, close to all!
we can't wait to go back to this house!
*even though the house is smack in the middle of hub bub, we had plenty of quiet and privacy.
AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!
thanks, randy and fam! <3"
