About Martie Etheridge
We bought this 'cottage' in 1972 and then tore it down and rebuilt it in 1993. My husband and I built for our own family. We love Catalina Island! I love the water in Catalina and my husband is an avid fisherman!
Martie Etheridge purchased this Condo in 1972
Why Martie Etheridge chose Avalon
We love going to Catalina and especially are thrilled to be close to downtown where all the action is! (three blocks to beach - maybe 1/2 mi.)
What makes this Condo unique
My children & Grandchildren love Mini golf and pizza at Antonios....We love the quaint theatre with flashes of the past.

Natural light filled, home away from home!
The home has a couple of sky lights that fill it with natural light. It is situated in the middle of everything. The beach is just two blocks away. The botanical gardens, nature center, as well as great hiking trails are a short bike ride away. The home is also located in a residential area that is closed to vehicles, allowing open space to eat outside or to have kids play without worrying about vehicles.
The house has a well-stocked kitchen, and two good sized bedrooms. Over-all, the living space is very functional.
There is WI-FI available, but it's very slow. Be aware that the homes in Avalon are very close together, so you will hear your neighbors and they will hear you!
We had a couple of issues with the house while we were visiting, but Martie took care of it ASAP.
In summary, you get a comfortable home base for all the activities Avalon has to offer!
Enjoyable stay on a quiet pedestrian only street
We enjoyed our stay in early August 2016. We love the quiet pedestrian only street. Very clean and well appointed unit. It is upstairs, which is good, but also can get very warm in the late afternoons. We kept all of the windows open, and there were two fans in the unit that we used at all times to keep the air flowing. The kitchen was very well stocked. Overall, it was a very nice unit, and we would definitely return.
Thanks for reviewing the property. Most folks don't take the time to do that and when I am shopping for a place to stay, they really help me make a decision. Thanks!
A very pleasant stay
We loved the location of this property. It is on a quiet street but very close to down town Avalon. The owner was very helpful and answered all our questions in a timely manner. The house was comfortable and suited us very well. We would recommend this property to friends.
Great Property in a Beautiful Place!
This beautiful second-story property is located on the only pedestrian-only street in Avalon. Just two blocks up from the town's pier and a short walk from all the must-see locations in town from the stunning classic Casino to the beautiful town-front beaches plus all the fine dining and shopping, to say it is perfectly located is an understatement. The unit is clean, bright and cheery with tasteful ocean themed decoration throughout and complete in every way. From birthday candles to Wi-Fi to DVDs for the flat screen and player, really we only needed to buy our food (from the nearby market) or opt to dine out and we were totally set. Sightseeing in and around town as well as scuba diving in the underwater park, this property made for a perfect getaway. It really was a dream (mini) vacation and we are definitely planning to return for a longer stay. We highly recommend this property.

loud Hispanic neighborhood with lots of crying children
The house was nice and clean but LOUD - especially in the evenings. In the rental below, as with many others on the street, it seemed to be locals with lots of children. Listened to a lot of crying and angry people yelling at their kids. Made us uncomfortable - and we had our children with us. Tried to stay away at bedtime. Seemed like more of a local renter street than a weekly vacation rental.
You can walk everywhere in Avalon - cars are not necessary and are not available. You can rent a golf cart, but they are very expensive. If you are a senior, you can go to the taxi head quarters and they will give you discount tickets so you can call a taxi if you get tired.
