Car: Not Necessary

The most visited tourist destination on Catalina Island is the city of Avalon. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the “mainland”, Avalon is the perfect place to take a break from the demands of daily life. With so many activities to choose from, your visit to Avalon can be adventure-packed or filled with rest and relaxation. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, it’s the ideal place to enjoy ocean air and sunshine.

While in Avalon, visitors enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, golfing, hiking, biking, shopping, strolling the museum and art galleries, a day at a spa, guided sightseeing tours or renting golf carts to explore the city on their own. You can also zip line, 'SNUBA,' tube, stand-up paddleboard -- or, just lay on the beach!

Avalon’s beachfront is lined with South Beach, Middle Beach and Step Beach—all are conveniently located in the center of town and within easy walking distance of hotels, restaurants, shopping, and land activities.

If you venture a little further through town you will come to The Descanso Beach Club, located just beyond the Casino Building. It is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, lounge on the beach, snorkel, kayak, cruise around on stand up paddle board, or swim in the crystal clear water. With new Cabanas and lounge chairs available you get the ultimate in beach relaxation. Restrooms, outdoor showers, dressing rooms and chair/umbrella rentals are available. This private beach also offers a seaside bar and restaurant in Avalon, so you can dine and enjoy your beverage with your feet in the sand.

Another activity that is not to be missed is heading outside the city gate to the beautiful interior of Catalina Island. One of the unique guided tours will provide you with history and amazing views of the undeveloped outback of the Island. Or explore the isolated coves, secluded beaches, miles of hiking trails, beautiful plants and native animals that abound just outside of Avalon.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Mel Dinkel and Leslie Baer Dinkel met on non-other than Catalina Island! A few years later, we were married at Descanso Beach (highly recommended!). Catalina holds so many memories for us, and since we are not on the Island all the time, we wanted to create an 'affordable luxury' accommodation where people could make their own memories! Since lots of families come to Catalina, it had to be fun -- thus, 'La Casa Sirena' (The Mermaid House) which includes both Catalina and Mermaid themes, bright-colored and interesting tiles and aesthetic, along with a closet just for beach accessories! It also had to be romantic for couples, and so, the lush natural woods, leathers and stone, Cal King bed, fun master shower for two and extra-wide jacuzzi! In short, we wanted it to be comfortable enough to be our home away from home, and yours too!

Why Avalon, CA, USA:
Extremely comfortable and conveniently located, our 3 for 2 February Fun special also makes the property and excellent value. We are pleased to be able to make this offer! When you book, just tell them you read it on VRBO! (You will book through Catalina Island Vacation Rentals: (888) 965-7031.)

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Multiple condos in this complex make it perfect for family reunions or gatherings of friends. Lower cost than many accommodations on Catalina, without sacrificing a bit of comfort!
