Property description

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

You can throw a stone into the water from our fantastic 60 foot wrap around balcony deck with spectacular and sweeping 270 degree views overlooking the beach, the town, the harbor and the ocean! There is no finer spot to sit and people watch or relax with a glass of wine. 2 night minimum. (3 nt minimum in summer)

You want waterfront with fantastic views; the best location; a great deck and the best value? This is it - look no further! Compare us to ANY other rental (house, condo or hotel) that claims to be waterfront or have an ocean view.

This family owned vacation home offers you the BEST location in town; only steps away from the sand and swimming, shopping, restaurants and bars and all the recreational activities and sightseeing tours. We are also a very short, 2 minute level stroll from where the ferry docks.

Our property is 3 stories (sorry, no elevator) and is a classic, comfortable beach house. On the ground floor are a couple retail clothing shops, a jet ski rental, an ocean rafting company and a psychic. The middle floor (14 steps up) is our larger vacation rental (vrbo #65480) and this unit is on the top (3rd) floor 14 additional steps up from the middle unit.

During the day we are right in the middle of all Avalon has to offer; hustling and bustling with activity. And virtually everyone who takes the ferry walks right past our property, so if you are a people watcher or enjoy seeing all the activity in the harbor; you'll be in heaven. At night however, after the 'day trippers' go home and the businesses close, everything calms down around us.

This unit is like a small 1 bedroom apartment and offers a large separate bedroom with queen bed, a newly remodeled bathroom with stall shower, a brand new fully stocked kitchen and a small living room. This unit is ideal for a romantic couple getaway or a couple with 1 child. In the living room is a TV with cable; DVD player and iPod player. 2 sets of sliding glass doors open onto the LARGE WRAPAROUND DECK WITH SPECTACULAR 270 DEGREE VIEWS. For eating there are 3 bar stools at the breakfast counter plus a table on the front deck. There is a gas BBQ on the side deck. BBQ and dine on the deck while you enjoy spectacular views. We also have free wireless internet access for your laptop computer.

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

RATES ARE BASED ON 2 PEOPLE. ADD $25/nt FOR A 3RD PERSON.
Also, the middle floor offers four bedrooms and three baths and sleeps 8. (See vrbo #65480). Book both units for an extended family vacation or 4-5 couple getaway.

NO PETS and NO SMOKING. 3 Night MINIMUM in Summer (and 2 nt minimum all other times). Sorry, we do NOT have a golf cart. Minimum age limits apply and young adults renting on their own must be 24 years of age.

**BOOKING IN ADVANCE** We have many regulars that come back 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.**
