About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

*** WE ARE TRAVELING THRU JUNE 6 AND WILL BE UNABLE TO REPLY TO ANY INQUIRIES DURING THAT TIME **


The GRISHAM HOUSE: AVALON'S ONLY WATERFRONT BEACH HOUSE!

You can throw a stone into the water from our spacious 65 FOOT WIDE wrap around deck with SPECTACULAR, sweeping views across the harbor, the town, the beach and the ocean. This is the ideal place for dining, drinks, entertaining, sunbathing, playing cards or simply watching the world go by. You'll never want to leave!

** WE ARE TRAVELING THRU JUNE 6 AND WILL BE UNABLE TO REPLY TO ANY INQUIRIES DURING THAT TIME **

We are superbly located just steps away from the beaches, shopping, restaurants, bars and all the recreational activities like swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, parasailing, basketball, volleyball and the many great sightseeing tours which are available. We are also a very short, 2 minute level walk from the boat dock.

Durng the day, we are right in the middle of all the activity Avalon has to offer; full of hustle and bustle. And nearly everyone who takes the ferry walks right past our property, so if you enjoy people watching, you'll be in heaven. At night however, after the 'day trippers' go home and the businesses below us close, it is pretty calm and quiet.

We are Avalon's #1 Vacation Rental home and we get numerous repeat guests and sell out every year. Our superior location and wonderful, relaxing and spectacular view decks is what attracts guests to us year after year. Several of our regulars have been coming for more than 20 years. THERE IS NO FINER SPOT FOR A FAMILY VACATION OR A COUPLES GETAWAY.

This unit is located on the middle floor of a 3 story property. On the ground floor are 2 clothing/gift shops, a jet ski rental, an ocean rafting company and a psychic. The top floor contains our separate 1 bedroom vacation rental. Our Middle Floor Unit (14 steps up - No elevator) sleeps 8. It consists of:
- Bedroom with Queen bed, TV & private 3/4 bath
- Bedroom with Double (full) bed & private 3/4 bath
- Bedroom with Queen bed and great harbor view
- Bedroom with Queen bed & TV
- There is a 3rd Full Bathroom off the living room
- 3 TV's, Stereo, DVD Player
- Wireless Internet Access
- Gas BBQ
- Updated Kitchen

- NO SMOKING and NO PETS ALLOWED.

WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE? Our property offers you the BEST location; the BEST beachfront viewing decks in town; and the BEST vacation rental value for your money. We get repeat guests year after year; you'll see why!

This property is best suited for 2 families; 1 large extended family or 3-4 couples. NOTE: Our Top (3rd) floor rental unit is a 1 bedroom 1 bath that sleeps 3 and has decks with great 270 degree views. See vrbo #66587 . These units can be rented together or separately. There is no air conditioning, although it's not needed very often at the beach. We do have portable fans. Lastly, we do NOT have a golf cart.

Sorry, but this is our family vacation home and it is not our policy to rent out to groups such as bachelor/bachlorette parties; fraternity/sorority parties, 21st birthdays, college spring break, etc. ALSO, if you are part of an even larger group or family reunion, we have restrictions on the number of visitors you are allowed. Minimum age limits apply and young adults renting on their own must be 24 years of age. 2 NIGHT MINIMUM at all times and 3 Night Minimum in High Summer Season. Higher rates apply around special events and major holidays.

**BOOKING IN ADVANCE** We have many regulars that come year after year and we always give them first opportunity to re-book for the following year. Therefore we do NOT book more than about 11 months in advance.**
