Catalina Island known as the island of romance is the perfect choice for visitors looking to escape and experience the warmth of a small-town in a fun island destination.

Fun activities include scuba, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, golf, parasailing, shopping, or just relaxing on the beach.

Our Catalina home is a wonderfully warm and sunny cottage just 2 blocks from the beach, shops, boating, and other entertainment. It is located on “the flats” in the center of town for an easy walk to all destinations. It has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and sleeps up to 4 people. The home is decorated with a cheerful Catalina/beach theme. The home is available for a two night quick get-away for an extended rejuvenation stay.

great location, but...

  • 2 of 5

Before I start, I'd like to say that I had never been to Catalina before. I was a little surprised at how dilapidated it is, considering how expensive the island is, in general. The cottage I would describe as more of a camping adventure, not a true house. The first thing I noticed was that you have to walk through one bedroom to get into the other. Now that I've gone through the pictures, I could see it but never would have thought to ask otherwise. It's something that should be explicitly mentioned because the only shower is in the bathroom that's in the back bedroom. Make sure you travel with people you know well when you stay here! There is only a dilapidated tri-fold door that separates the two bedrooms, full of gaps.

As mentioned in other reviews, the place was clean-ish. For example, the comforter on the bed and the decorative pillows were VERY stained and nasty, I tossed them in the corner. Whether they were washed was irrelevant given their age and condition. However, the sheets were white and clean, along with 2 other pillows on the bed. The carpet is just plain gross...it's in serious need of replacing. The beds were LOUD...every movement is a creak that could be heard throughout the house. Not an exaggeration.

The half bath was "clean" but in a state of disrepair with a broken toilet seat and no towel racks (the ends were there, like there had been a full towel rack at some point). The towels were clean, but a bit dingy.

The worst part was the lack of heat...it was in the 40's in the evening and my husband and I FROZE. The back bedroom has a small built-in thing on the wall, but our room did not. There was some type of grill/grate on the wall near the kitchen sink but it looked like a fire hazard and had obviously not been cleaned in a while. We ended up finding a portable heater which buzzed like an electric razor and didn't heat the room. It didn't help that there was no door between our room and the kitchen, so the air was just sucked out.

In conclusion, I'd like to say that this cottage has potential but it's just not up to par. The location is really the best thing about it but I would not stay here again.

The Little House on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I loved this place other than heat inside and the old school electronic equipment (stero,DVD players,) and no real tv choices. But I mean the convience of being on the same street as the beach, the pier, and Vons, this was awesome, also I BBQ steaks, burgers, and dogs. We did not have to eat at a restaurant once in 3 days. It makes for nice little get away.

Great location for the price

  • 4 of 5

Location was great and price was right. It was fun sitting on the stoop watching the golf carts and foot traffic going by. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. No AC so it was hot for our July vacation, especially in the back bedroom.
