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.

Better than expected. Didn't want to leave. Golf cart was really useful and fun.
nice and quiet
Older property but the remodel was well done. The view is impressive. The condo could be closer but once you get the golf cart that fixes everything. The golf cart is a real bonus. Would definitely stay there again.
My family and I had an amazing time. The rental was wonderful... close to everything and the golf cart was a bonus. Kim was very accomodating and provided unrivaled hospitality. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks Kim
Clean, comfortable condo near town
My family and I made last minute plans to go to Catalina for my birthday and we were so lucky to be able to nab this place for our quick trip. Kim was so accommodating and was able to let us check in a little early before check on time. We arrived and went immediately to the balcony. The view is spectacular! We could see the town from there as well as the gorgeous casino (which is no longer a casino but a movie theater that shows current movies). There are two balconies too. One on the first floor of the condo and the other upstairs outside the master bedroom. The full size kitchen was nice though we didn’t use it during our short trip. Each bedroom had a TV with access to cable and Netflix and other movie streaming services. It was a little hard to figure out how to get the regular channels but we then figured out we had to have the TV source set to AV to get regular cable. We didn’t watch much TV but it was nice to have that ability especially when little ones come along and want to watch their cartoons. Beds were very comfortable as well and the shower in the master was very nice! The second bedroom has it’s own full bath but it’s located at the landing between the first and second floor, which was a little inconvenient especially if you bring little children or an elderly person who would have to navigate the stairs during the night to get to their bathroom. It’s designed this way to give access to visitors as it is the only other bathroom in the condo. The location of the condo was perfect, it’s about a 5 minute walk to town and since there was little traffic at this time of the year, there were not many cars or golf carts. Most people drive golf carts or ride bicycles on the island so it felt very safe crossing streets as we made our way to town. We had the convenience of having a golf cart with our condo and after a little confusion as to where it was and whether we had to check in, we were able to locate it and go on our way. The golf cart is parked in a small parking lot on another street and has a lock box code you have to enter it to get the key. We made the mistake of thinking we had to check in with someone but then I remembered Kim had gotten my information (drivers license, etc...) over the phone. The condo community was quiet and we had no trouble at all sleeping with our windows open at night. There were lots of families with little ones enjoying the swimming pool during the day so families will feel very welcomed here.
we loved it.
the property is well maintained and decorated very nicely also very spacious with wonderful views of Avalon.
Home away from home
It was a girls weekend getaway and we wanted place where we can wind down after a long day of sight seeing, a place with beautiful views where we can sit back and relax. This apartment had everything we were looking for...the views, the space and so many amenities that we weren't able to enjoy everything because of our limited time on the Island.
It was a walking distance to get to the location where the golf cart was but I still enjoyed the fact that the apartment came with a golf cart. It provided transportation around the town and made us feel like we were locals!
