Great Location on Catalina Island

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's 70th birthday and our 50 anniversary is this terrific duplex. Five of us staying in the upstairs unit and seven stayed in the main downstairs unit (it was great having two kitchens). The very clean home was ready for us when we arrived. We picked up the golf cart to shuttle our luggage from the boat landing and family members took a very short walk to the Piper House. The were many amenities that made us feel at home. The large deck has umbrella tables, lounging chairs and a BBQ we put to good use. The owner, Angela Piper, is efficient with the paperwork and responsive to our reservation needs. If we have the opportunity to return to this beautiful island we would love to stay at the Piper House again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We were very lucky to find a house with 5 bedrooms and three updated bathrooms for our family get together. The location was perfect for walking around and enjoying the town of Avalon.

Super convenient & comfortable for large groups to enjoy Avalon

  • 4 of 5

This house is great for large groups, even though the top and bottom are not connected internally. We had no complaints about the furnishings, the amenities, cleanliness, or space. We had a great stay and would consider returning with a large group. The location of this home is great to get to all the local attractions, but being on the main thoroughfare could be uncomfortable, especially in warmer months. We may be hyper-sensitive, but we didn't open any windows or use the terrace because of the golf cart traffic and the related fumes... but we weren't at the house much anyway as we were in Avalon for a wedding, which had a lot of planned activities. The included golf cart was the greatest benefit and we can't thank the owner enough for providing it during our stay.

At ball at the Ball

  • 5 of 5

Finding the right location in Avalon to host a large group (or small for that matter) can be challenging. Situated close to one of my favorite coffee shops (CC Gallagher's), a stones throw from the beach and board walk, easy walk to the Mole (boat terminal), and generally right dab in the middle of everything this house is a perfect place to host. With its great deck for entertaining, separate and spacious upstairs and downstairs (two kitchens) with enough wiggle room so that you can escape from the group to read or nap this home is the perfect destination in and of itself. Having a need for room to prepare for the Conservancy's Annual Ball we also needed plenty of space to "dress to the nines"... we were not late this year, phew! Thanks for a great space.

Great rental on Catalina

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for 10 adults during the Jazz Festival. Had a marvelous time! The location is perfect, golf cart an added bonus, kitchens are well stocked with dishes, etc., beds are very comfortable, plenty of towels. Basically everything you need for a wonderful get away. Would definitely return to this home and recommend it to others. The ONLY downfall, our vacation was not long enough!!!
