If you want to be in the heart of town and walk anywhere this is it. It is on the first block, steps to the sand and steps to any restaurant or bar. Right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so easy if you want a tour or event. Two nice decks, you can have a drink and enjoy the views or people watch. All newly redone, nice everything. Sound throughout along with flatscreen bluray and mp3 dock. It technically is a one bedroom but it is 1100 sq ft with two euroloungers that fold out and all bedding/towels included. This is a fun place to go and you will love it, we do.

NEW POLICY, NO REFUND DUE TO CANCELLATION. Sorry, it was getting to be a pain in the neck. VRBO does offer travel insurance.

                                                            • This property is located on the first block in Avalon, you can walk anywhere. The 4th of July parade goes right in front of the place. There are two nice decks with views of the harbor and the ocean and look directly across to the Wrigley Mansion. City lights at night and a short walk to your favorite Bars and Restaurants. This place was recently totally remodeled and has not been rented until now. We are right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so very convenient for tours.

                                                              The house was spacious and very clean. It was close to the ocean and restaurants. Perfect for us!

                                                              We loved the place and Catalina. Everything was clean, close, and a lot of fun. Marty is a great host and very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                              Gem of Catalina

                                                              Jade C.San Jose

                                                              Our stay in Catalina was made even better by this gem of a rental! The property owner, Marty, was extremely helpful and easily reached via email or phone. He did his best to accommodate our requests i.e. early check-in, late check-out, storing our belongings. *Be sure to provide him your ferry times so that he can coordinate with his house-keeper and next guests. The unit is a stones throw from the ferry landing, approx. a 5min walk and is located on the first street as you approach town. It is furbished with up-to-date appliances and furniture and a really nice sound system. It is an ideal stay for couples looking for a nice romantic respite. The "toy room" if filled with anything and everything needed for a nice beach day or romp around the island. Definitely planning our next stay!

                                                              Amazing location. Clean and roomy place. Bikes and kayaks are an added bonus!

                                                              Really pleased with the place. The walk is so short to the place from the ferry. Balconies are great. Plenty of room.

                                                              Loved everything about his place.

                                                              Clean, perfect location, 2 full bathrooms, fully stocked, toys to use including bikes made our trip perfect. Loved having the balconies to chill on. Will definitely be back!!! Thank you Marty

                                                              Wonderful place to stay. I am a repeat customer.

                                                              Denise S.

                                                              This is a great place. Bonuses are all the play stuff that comes with it. Bike, Kayaks, Paddle Boards, beach chairs, golf clubs, basketball and lots of other stuff. The owner is great. It is a short 5 minute walk from where the boat lets you off. Another plus is a full sized kitchen and two large balconies for people watching.

                                                              The property was quite amazing, at the most unbeatable price. Marty is great.

                                                              This property was spotless, quite large, in walking distance to everything, and Marty was an excellent host. He responded to all of our questions (even the silly ones) quickly and with so much positivity. We loved using the deck as a place to drink coffee in the morning, it was just wonderful. The available bikes and kayaks were a huge bonus as well. If we ever return, we would definitely stay here again... you just can’t beat the price for this excellent property.

                                                              Included with the rental is two single man Kayaks, 4 bikes and two stand up paddleboards. You have to carry them to the beach which is less than a block. You have to be responsible to know how to use them, I am not offering any instruction. There are life vests but no helmets. Nice new stuff, and also includes beach chairs and an umbrella, two sets of golf clubs.

                                                              Tax Rate

                                                              I am negotiable on the payment structure but if you don't ask I'll request 1/2 then the other 1/2 whenever VRBO sends out the request which is probably 30 days prior to travel. If its a month or less then just one payment. Please use the eCheck option or let me know so I can ad 3% for the credit card choice.
