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.

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.

The Yellow House by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd year my husband & I have stayed at the yellow house. Always a pleasure. It is conveniently located near the main street of Avalon with a peak-a-boo view of the water from either of the two balconies. The kitchen is always stocked with coffee beans, and since we enjoy cooking, we are always able to find enough spices, herbs, olive oil and vinegar to whip up a marinade for chicken! The owner, Marty, is a great communicator who always checks via text to make sure you settled in ok. Would highly recommend.

The yellow house is amazing! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay in the yellow house, and I cannot think of a better place to be on the Island. It has everything you need, perfect location, very cute inside and out and Marty is the best. My husband and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary with a 4 night stay, and we have had an absolute blast. Thank you for everything Marty! Can't wait to plan next years trip!

Fantastic trip, no hassle check in and check out

  • 5 of 5

My mom and two sisters and I absolutely had a blast at Marty's place. We never met, but Marty's super easy to communicate with by text. There is a keypad on the door so you don't have to go pick up or drop off some lame key somewhere. The place was clean, bright, perfect for our needs. Nice to have the two bathrooms on separate levels. We loved spending time on the balconies and people watching! It's a busy little street, so expect some road traffic noises starting in the morning, but overall not too bad at all. Thank you Marty!

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Marty's Yellow House was perfect for our family of four for our first Catalina weekend. Great location, well appointed, fully equipped with beach equipment and bikes. Marty is an exceptionally good communicator and can assist with anything house or Catalina related.

Highly recommended.

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.

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.
