Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

THIS HOME IS FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED. This home does not come with a golf cart, it is against city policy as to not compete with local rental companies. There are 2 and 3 night minimums for winter and summer, we do not rent for single nights. Also there is a 6 person limit per our rental agreement that we have with the association, if you bring more than 6 people you will jeopardize our agreement and you will forfeit your security deposit. PLEASE NOTE that the Pool is not heated during the winter months and the Jacuzzi is only heated on weekends during this time per the Condo Association. Both Pool & Jacuzzi are both heated during the summer months. We also just removed all the upstairs carpet so now the entire unit is hardwood floors! We also just added a portable wagon at the front door for your use to and from the market or the beach. While rarely needed this condo does not have air conditioning as is the norm on Catalina.

Located above of Santa Catalina's Quaint European Style City of Avalon this Split-Level Penthouse Suite is within a 5-10 minute walking distance from the Crescent Street Beach Walk and White Sandy Beaches; fine dining, fast food, street musicians, entertainment, SHOPPING and just plain fun! The Bahia Vista Condo development offers one of the few Pools and Spas on Catalina Island.

Panorama Views of the Ocean, Avalon Harbor, the City, and Hillside Canyons from All of the rooms and both Balconies.

Catalina is All About Island Lifestyle!

Try out the new Catalina Zipline and EcoTour Excursion, as well as the NEW Undersea Adventure…coming Spring of 2011! Take a bus or van ride up to the Airport in the Sky and have lunch and maybe…..see the California Bison (Buffalo) grazing in the fields below. Hike, walk, bike or obtain transportation to the center of the Island or to the far end development of Two Harbors.

Learn about Catalina’s history by visiting the Casino museum, and the Country Club Restaurant adjacent to the golf course, which features the original Chicago Cubs Clubhouse and locker rooms, as well as, numerous photographs of prior year Cubs baseball stars. It’s the only place in town to get a “great” cigar.

Find out which Movie Stars, dignitaries, Presidents and “lesser luminaries” walked the streets of Avalon and haunted the Catalina landscape in the early days of film making. The Museum will show you movies of the way Stars were born during the hayday of the movie studios…and where the “bodies” are buried…so to speak.

Why Dean and Tina Chrispen chose Catalina Island

We have been vacationing in Avalon for a number of years and found just the right luxury condominium to eventually become our retirement home. We love Avalon and know you will come to love it too.

What makes this condo unique

This is an Upscale Condominium located in a beach community, just a short two block walk from the ocean and night life. There is a Pool and Spa on the premises and elevators to assist you for ingress and egress. Catalina Island is the ultimate West Coast Island vacation destination. Remember, it's just 26 miles across the sea...

Perfect island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Catalina. This place is in a perfect location, close enough to walk to town, but away from the crowds & noise. Very clean & relaxing & we felt at home. The views are spectacular, which we enjoyed from the fabulous balconies, and the pool & jacuzzi were a great bonus as well.

Enjoyable & Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4, really enjoyed our stay here, we all had plenty of room to move around, was not cramped at all, our beds were comfortable as well. Although we didn't use the kitchen for much other than coffee, and fridge, everything was there, had we cooked.

Aside from our non-sunny days, the view from both the living room and decks were beautiful and the walk was a very nice walk to the main strip.

Thank you, and we hope to be back soon.

Wonderful Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend here and it was awesome. The island was beautiful and so was the apartment. It was literally a 10 minute walk from the Catalina Express with NO hills. We just pulled our suitcases along and followed the route given and it was so easy. The apartment was so convenient and clean. We bought groceries and cooked and it was really nice to have all the utensils we needed. We didn't need a golf cart because everything was walking distance and it was fun looking at all the different and unique buildings. Looking out from the balcony you can see the casino which is less than a mile away. We also downloaded an Avalon Scavenger hunt which was a blast! Dean and Tina were very accommodating and easy to communicate with making the stay that much better. I highly recommend. Oh and the Jacuzzi and pool - Awesome!

Postcard views of Avalon

  • 5 of 5

What a view! It's a perfect location to see the incredible views, within walking distance to everything but still very quiet. While at the condo, we spent much of our time on the 2 private decks enjoying the great weather. The unit and the complex were well maintained and had everything we needed. There was more than enough room for our party of 4. On the day we checked in, the onsite manager stopped by to introduce herself and to let us know to contact her if there were any problems. There was no need as we had no problems. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive. We love visiting Catalina and hope to stay at this condo on our future visits.
