About Kim Chamberlain
We are a family always looking for that 'perfect' vacation experience', and we believe --although perfect can be evasive--the Catalina experience comes close. From your harbor arrival in this quaint little village of Avalon, the endless charm and activity, becomes enchanting! Come experience the Catalina for yourselves: You will be happy you did!
Kim Chamberlain purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Kim Chamberlain chose Avalon
Growing up in Southern California and Sailing to Catalina as a child on numerous occasions attracted us to Catalina in the early days, and our memories have brought us back. Many times our fathers would sail over, and we kids would come across the channel on the old 'Steamship'. I will never forget the local kids (some younger) swimming out to meet the Steamer and then diving deep for coins/money tossed from the upper decks from the visiting passengers. Those days are past, but a new adventure is always just a step or thought away in this island paradise.
What makes this Condo unique
In addition to gorgeous harbor views, we are also uniquely situated above and away from the 'sounds' of busy little golf-cart traffic that sometimes can disturb a peaceful evening.

Clean, quiet, island-time, thoughtful, easy
The unit we stayed in was beautiful with even better views of Avalon and the ocean. We were able to obtain the full island-life feel. We felt very welcome because of how homey the house was, the little personal touches, and the resources available. The golf-cart was handy for trips with luggage, groceries, or to get to the other side of the town for the wedding. The pool and Jacuzzi looked great, but we didn't use it because of our full schedule. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
So much better than a hotel
We really appreciated having the golf cart available. The owner was prompt with answering questions and there was plenty of space for six of us.
Great place but..
The place is beautiful looks exactly like the pictures. But be prepared to walk. They do have a golf cart but it's parked in town so you might as well walk everywhere. Which wasn't too bad, but was pointless to have the cart. There are also stairs like no other getting to the condo and inside that I don't remember seeing online beforehand. We had a minor issue with the toliet in one of the bathrooms and the property manager Chela, was a great help and even cleaned up the place while we were out. Overall if I could give a 4.5 star rating I would. Great views, comfy beds, roomy, and nice tenants. I would definitely recommend.
I'm so puzzled...For the entry into the complex there are no more than 3 stairs at a time, and as i can tell there are no areas where their are more than 4 stairs.
Did you not see the elevator?
We did have a conversation about it being a tri-level. It has about 7 stairs when you enter, 7 to the bathroom and 7 to the bedrooms.
So sorry for the inconvenience. What i suggest to all guests is on your way to town which is 2 blocks away, pick up the golf cart at breakfast. You may park in front of the unit all day , at night when going to dinner, drop off the cart and leisurely stroll back home. Believe me, i wish i were able to have guests park in the underground garage, I have been arguing with my association for years.
Perfect in every way!
This property has a fabulous location and it was exceptionally clean and comfortable. Kim, our host, went above and beyond to help us when we had a travel issue due to weather. If we could give a 10 star review, we would!
Lovely home with a great view
Overall it was great! Beautiful view. The only thing was the cleanliness. 2nd bedroom sheets did not look changed and hair was found in bed sheets. I found other sheets and changed but other than that, it was awesome. Walking around was great and plenty of room in place and great community. Very lovely.
I am so sorry that you had that problem. Please understand from an owners perspective it would always be nice to hear about these complaints as the Island manager usually takes 15 minutes to get to the condo. We work so hard to make the experience as perfect as possible, there is always the possibilty of a mess up. In the future please always give the owner the opportunity to fix or correct anything that is in need of correction. Thanks again.
Absolutely perfect weekend! Everything was AMAZING!
This property was well represented and we are so appreciative of our time spent here! I cannot wait to return to one of my new favorite places on the planet! Thank you for making this perfect vacation possible!
