Overview

About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.

Notes:
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.

Awesome Yellow House!

  • 5 of 5

3 women friends stayed here for an island wedding. The house was very nice and well maintained. And very clean too! It was close to everything without being noisy or a hike in. Marty was super great and kept in contact with us. Glad we didn't need him, but nice to know he was there. And we could see our place from all the view points! We will certainly be returning to this house in future trips.

Fabulous Place for an Island Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and well appointed, including lots of "toys" to use to explore and enjoy the water, too. Super clean and comfy. It is located steps from the main drag, but it is on a busy street (for Catalina). This can be a little noisy over the weekend, but if you close the windows and patio doors in the evening it shouldn't disturb you. Marty, the host, was great with communication. Our group of three had a fabulous time and loved the Yellow House.

Perfect Location, Great Views

  • 5 of 5

Marty was an exceptional host! The property was very clean and made you feel like you were home! We stayed for a week and had a hard time saying goodbye as we were only steps from the beach and practically all of the restaurants. Cant wait to visit again!

Beautiful home, nice location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay on the island. The house is very nice and spacious for a couple. The kitchen is well stocked, with nice appliances. The balconies were nice to sit and watch people. The bed is comfortable and the bathrooms nice and clean. Because the bedroom is open, I don't think I would want to come with a family - no privacy for mom and dad. My only reservation is that it is on the main street coming from the docks, so there is a lot of vehicle traffic during the day, which makes it a little noisy on the balcony. The noise is outweighed by the fact that you are right in the middle of town - so convenient to walk everywhere!

Wonderful location - Close to everything

  • 5 of 5

Marty was very helpful and responsive to all of our questions. The home was clean and comfortable with all we needed for our stay. We really enjoyed the extra perks of bicycles, beach chairs, and kayaks! It was great to sit out on the balcony and watch the happenings of the town as the ocean breeze cooled the evenings.

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.
