Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This Great home is located in the heart of Avalon just 1/2 a block from the beach, shops, restaurants, and the green pier! It's a really short walk from the boat dock too! The home is comfortable, clean and well maintained.

My family has had a great trip and we will definitely be back again!

Love the View - Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a wonderful week stay at this great Catalina home! We have been lucky enough to stay here for the last two years and it definitely does not disappoint. The location is unbeatable (just a few steps from the beach) and the home is spacious and comfortable. I would highly recommend this location!

Spacious with perfect accessibility to everything.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing time. It was so close to everything. The bedrooms were large with great balconies. Thank you for allowing us to slip in between two other bookings. We were able to put our suitcases in earlier than the 3:00pm check in. The leaving occupants left their suitcases in the front room, but removed them by the 3:00 check in. The house keepers were friendly and the washer and dryer access came in handy. We would definitely rent this property in the future.
