Overview

About the property

Spacious villa located just steps away from the ocean, in a building that is the closest to the water, that one can be, in the Cove.

About Lamont

Since visiting Catalina Island over 20 years ago, I've always dreamt of owning anything on the Catalina Island. Allow me to share my dream with.

Lamont purchased this condo in 2012

Why Lamont chose Avalon

This building is the closet to the beach you can get. With zero steps to climb to get to the front door, its convenient and comfy for people from 2 to 8. With two PRIVATE (non shared) balconies, you can truly enjoy your privacy.

What makes this condo unique

Two entries into the unit, one from the Kitchen/Livingroom and another from the master suite, so mom and dad can respark the romance in complete privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lamont I just wanted to thank you again for your beautiful place and the whole family and friends had a time of our lives. Weather was a perfect 10!

Great

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Condo was nice. Only downfall was how uncomfortable all the beds were. The sheets were scratchy too, and we had ants (no food). Overall place was nice, we had a great time!

Not worth the money!

  • 1 of 5

Outdated. No air conditioning. Our family stayed across the hall and paid the same amount of money for a totally remodeled full ocean view. Advice: do research!

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

It's a beautiful condo !!! Location is beautiful. We had so much fun ! Golf cart was very helpful to go around, BBQ grill was a plus . I wish the condo has an ocean view. Few items we noticed : Toilet bowls were not flushing properly ( need new plumbing system ) old and rundown sofas , the bed I slept on was not comfortable . I was looking for AC the first day because it's hot during the day . No AC.

Overall , it's a good experience for all of us .

Thank you !

26 miles across the sea...

  • 5 of 5

Landlord was great and Rosie let us use the golf cart to drop our luggage early. Very nice unit. The only problem was the inflatable bed has a slow leak and the sofa bed is all springs... but the bedroom beds are fine a king and a queen.

Subpar Unit

  • 1 of 5

We were so uncomfortable and displeased that we left early and cut our vacation short after staying just one night. And I mean staying (not sleeping - because we could not rest since the beds were so old feeling/painfully hard/springy). Even though we were there for our son's second birthday, and we had other family with us in another unit, we couldn't enjoy ourselves with the sub par conditions. The pillows were also old feeling/poor quality and uncomfortable. The unit has no AC and no breeze from the ocean the way it is situated. What little air can come in, was not enough to cool it, and there were loud guests causing ruckus outside all night long.

There are no safety/security latches on the tops of the doors and balcony access doors. The owner knew we were traveling with toddlers, and failed to mention this. we had to jimmy safety barricades on 4 separate doors.

The unit is dated and run down (grimy soiled and worn out rug, weathered sofas, walls in need of paint, rusty balcony furniture, etc). It didn’t look nice, and felt very icky.

We wrote to the owner Lamont to discuss and remedy, but he was unprofessional, rude and dismissive. He only commented on one aspect noting how other guests thought his couches were comfortable (when that issue was not even our complaint...we said they are dingy and gross).

We made the mistake of not reading the poor rating reviews before booking. We have however confirmed after the fact, that other people had the same lousy experience with this yucky unit and the careless owner. Beware!
