About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps maximum of 6 guests

This is a beautifully furnished, newer townhome in the heart of Avalon that offers ocean views and is just a short walk to the beach, shopping and activities. With two master bedroom suites upstairs, it's perfect for two couples or a family. Each of the master suites' have a king size bed, custom treatments, an attached bathroom, flat screen TV and a balcony with a beautiful view of the harbor and ocean beyond.

This unit can definitely be your home away from home, with the in unit washer (water allotment permitting) and dryer, comfortable leather furniture, fully equipment gourmet kitchen, and separate dining area with a flat screen TV that seats 6 with views to the harbor. The welcoming living room with a queen size sofa sleeper comes complete with a flat screen TV, DVD, CD and iPod input system. All that is missing is you! Make your reservations TODAY.

Why the Owner Chose Catalina Island, Avalon: We have been visiting Catalina Island for years. We would sail to Avalon, and stay on our boat moored in the harbor. We had such a wonderful time in the Summer we decided to visit Avalon in the Winter. Again, we had a wonderful time, but it was too chilly (for us) to stay on the boat. So when a new development of 8 townhomes in the heart of Avalon neared completion we decided to buy so we could enjoy the Island year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome: As a family of 4 it is important to me to be able to do things together such as mini golf, regular 9 holes of golf, hiking, biking, touring the Island, kayaking in harbor, scuba diving, going to the beach, family movie night watching DVDs and riding the new zip line as well as a multitude of other family oriented activities. But I can also enjoy special time with my husband as well; an evening movie at the Casino Theater, stroll to dinner, enjoy an evening night cap and stroll home, golf and lunch with friends and sleeping in. Individually I can relax and catch up on my reading, explore the shops, take a peaceful early morning walk along the harbor past the Casino to Descanso Beach and take time to cook a fun meal for my family.

Why Jan chose Catalina Island

We have been visiting Catalina Island for years. We would sail to Avalon, and stay on our boat moored in the harbor. We had such a wonderful time in the Summer we decided to visit Avalon in the Winter. Again, we had a wonderful time, but it was too chilly (for us) to stay on the boat. So when a new development of 8 townhomes in the heart of Avalon neared completion we decided to buy so we could enjoy the Island year round.

What makes this townhome unique

As a family of 4 it is important to me to be able to do things together such as mini golf, regular 9 holes of golf, hiking, biking, touring the Island, kayaking in harbor, scuba diving, going to the beach, family movie night watching DVDs and riding the new zip line as well as a multitude of other family oriented activities. But I can also enjoy special time with my husband as well; an evening movie at the Casino Theater, stroll to dinner, enjoy an evening night cap and stroll home, golf and lunch with friends and sleeping in. Individually I can relax and catch up on my reading, explore the shops, take a peaceful early morning walk along the harbor past the Casino to Descanso Beach and take time to cook a fun meal for my family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for your note, and your help and advice prior to our trip to the island! We had a wonderful time at your place and will definitely stay there again if we visit Catalina Island in the future! We'll also be sure to pass along your information to friends.



One thing we did while we were there that was really wonderful was to take a hike with Catalina Backcountry. They provide a great, educational opportunity to hike with a guide and learn about the island's natural and human history, I know they would appreciate being recommended to future guests.



We also did some fabulous snorkeling in the marine preserve right by the harbor. Our son, who has dived all over the world, said it was one of the best spots for visibility he's ever seen.

A real vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to have a home on the island, not a hotel room. Our group of 6 loved this place. Watching the fireworks from the balcony was awesome. yes the last half-block is a steep hill but it's so worth it!

great location, fantastic views, comfortable place

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this beautiful townhome. The place is great and an easy walk to all the main attractions/restaurants/shops - but on a side street so street noise is not a problem. The place is also conveniently located half a block from the main grocery store on the island. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, plates, bowls, etc. And lastly, the owner Jan is quick to respond, helpful and very accommodative - a real pleasure to work with.

Super nice home! Our family spent 3 days at the island. Our two young kids and my 76 yr old mother. The home was great. The beds were the best we have seen on the island. Large king size beds, nice mattresses, covers, sheets, pillows, all very comfortable! We slept great. The pull out couch in the living room was fine too. Towels were nicer than standard and nice soap and shampoo in the bathrooms. Big shower in the master room and tub in the other bath. TVs are all smart tvs with NFLX, etc, so bring you log ins. Four TVs where nice for everyone to watch different shows. TV in kitchen was great for kids breakfast time. Neighbor has free wifi you can access too.

Rental company and owner had many snacks in the kitchen and water bottles in the refrig when we arrived. Perfect after the trek over from the ferry boat and the walk up the hill. Also, they have a Keurig coffee maker and you can bring your favorite coffee to put in the cup.

Views from top floor, where the bedrooms are located, are great, but only two high stools can fit on the narrow decks. We weren't all able to sit out on a deck to enjoy the weather together and have morning coffee. Lots of windows made for a nice breeze in the house and ceiling fans were nice too.

Location is good. Right up the street from Vons, so if you buy food, just walk right up the street a long block and hill and you are home. Also, straight up from the fountain on the main walk way, Antonio's pizza, and the golf cart rental shop on the corner. Recommend you get a golf cart ($45/hr) and run over to Descanso Beach Club past the Casino and spend the day there. They have great food, music, swimming, ziplining, and a large grass area to relax.

There is a hill to walk up from the beach to the house and it get's steeper the last 100 yards, then some steps to the front door of the house. You can take the city bus for $2 and get dropped at the corner close to the house or use the island taxi for $10 to get to the door if you get tired of walking up the hill. Going down is a breeze.

We would stay here again. It was nice to be in an "updated" newer home with nice furnishings. Thanks Jan!
