About the Property

ENJOY SPRINGTIME ON THE ISLAND!

This is your opportunity to experience why we love our vacation home and our little island paradise of Avalon. We are only an hour by boat from Los Angeles, but guests often comment it seems like another world. This special home, in our family since 1956, has every amenity to make your stay in Avalon comfortable and relaxing. Our lovely deck is the perfect place to read a book, enjoy friends, or enjoy a warm summer evening with a perfect meal from the barbeque.

Experience why we love our home and our little island paradise of Avalon. Your accommodations are the upper level which is the entryway of our large home. Deck surrounds the house. We have every amenity to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. For those inclined, there are walking trails throughout the island for hiking. There is a zip-line and climbing wall, bicycles and segways to tour the town. Visit the Botanical Gardens, Wrigley Memorial and play a round at the nine-hole golf course. Most tantalizing are the crystal clear waters of Avalon Bay where our state fish, the bright orange garibaldi, abound and delight visitors. You can rent paddle boats, paddle boards, scuba equipment, kayaks, snorkels, masks and more to enjoy the best part of Avalon. Snorkeling Lover’s Cove, our own Marine Reserve, is an experience not to be missed! You can rent a boat, replete with tackle and fishing poles, from Joe’s Rent-a-Boat on the pier and try your hand at fishing the island coast.
Avalon is a wonderful place for our young visitors as well. Did you know that we are the home to the oldest miniature golf course west of the Rockies? Besides all the fun the beach and ocean affords, there is also an arcade with a small bowling alley and the latest arcade games. Generations of children have marveled at the taffy machine in the window at Lloyd’s of Avalon, churning out the delicious taffy that made Lloyd’s famous.
After a busy day, return to your beautifully appointed oasis, above the hub-bub of the town, and enjoy the quiet environment of your beautiful surroundings. There are upstairs and downstairs living rooms affording guests the option to choose what vacation means to you, with a 3D/Blue Ray flat screen downstairs, wi-fi, a variety of games and game table, and another small deck. Upstairs is the kitchen, laundry room, master bedroom with a brand new walk –in stone shower. This level also has an expansive living area to read, relax or nap as you desire.
There are a variety of dining experiences in Avalon and we would be happy to help you choose the spot that is right for your taste. Our on-site host is happy to help point you in the direction of those activities you choose to pursue, from a spa experience at our beautiful new Island Spa to the best place for breakfast. We look forward to sharing our island home with you!
