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.

Great deal for great location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first VRBO experience. This was a great stay. Marty’s place was well-located, very clean, and perfect for our family of four. He kept in touch with us from beginning to end. We can’t wait to come back.

The location and amenities are everything! The owner is an amazing communicator. We will stay again.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience trying a VRBO instead of a hotel. This is the only way I will stay on Catalina again! My husband was running the Avalon 50k, so having space for our kids (ages 6 & 2.5) to roam and being at a location that was easy to walk to the beach, arcade, and mini golf was essential.

I love that the house had a keyless entry and that the ‘toy room’ is a kid’s and adult’s playground (literally do not bring anything except helmets & beach towels. The fridge was full of condiments and there is a filtered drinking water system (a definite cost saver if you bring your own bottle).

The balconies have a peek-a-boo View of the ocean and are great for people watching. Our family did have a little adventure and got locked out on the first balcony. Thank goodness we had our phones with us. We called Marty and he had a handyman there very quick to let us in. If you are not an early riser, be aware that the street does have quite a bit of noise starting around 7am.

The house was clean, well organized, beautiful and serene. While my family of four is young we will try to call the Yellow House our home away from home as much as possible. Thank you Marty for sharing this gem of a home with us!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great find on Catalina Island. Location couldn't be beat, within walking distance to everything. Top two floors of the yellow house, enter at street level and ascend one flight to the kitchen/full bathroom and lower deck, and then go up another flight to the bedroom/living area, which is all one open space. Super clean and well equipped, including bikes and kayaks. Amazing responsiveness from the host, who checked in with us along the way to make sure all was well. Five stars, for sure.

Nice

Clean place, comfortable bed and fantastic to have toys available. Marty is attentive to details and responds quickly. Street noise is abundant, but quieted well when the doors are closed.

Perfect - just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We have a toddler and enjoyed a great stay at the yellow house. Marty is extremely helpful and the stay was exactly what we were looking for - a relaxing get-away-from-it-all.

Perfect stay in Avalon

  • 5 of 5

It had been exactly 4 years since the last time my husband and I stayed here. And everything was just as perfect this time as last time. Marty is a wonderful to work with during the whole process of renting, making sure all questions are answered and needs met. The house is great and has everything for a comfortable stay. I liked having a bike available to use. It's close to everything. Dave and I enjoyed sitting on the balconies in the evening. The storage at checkout for luggage is a real bonus, allowing us to easily wander around Avalon while waiting for the boat.

Why Marty Heim chose Avalon

Always loved the Island, the best memories are here.

Did a total remodel very recent. Everything is in great shape, read the reviews. Everybody loves this place.

What makes this villa unique

Includes 2 Kayaks, 2 SUPs, 4 Bikes, two sets of golf clubs, umbrella, cart to carry stuff to beach or market, 4 beach chairs and kid sand toys.

Map

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.

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning $100
Tax Rate 12.0%

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.
