Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed here with our 4 children (ages 2-12), and we absolutely loved it! The place is perfect for a weekend getaway. The location is great. It's a very short walk to the boat, pier, beach, restaurants, and shops. The owner, Susan, was a wonderful host, and very accommodating. We made good use of the beach chairs and sand toys, along with a handy wagon to take it all down to the beach. There is also a nice selection of movies available that the kids really enjoyed. I'll definitely be recommending this place to friends, and hope to stay here again next time we visit the island.

Great weekend getaway for a small group!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a weekend trip for a friend's birthday! It is in a great central location. We walked with our luggage to and from the boat, easy access to all the shops, restaurants and bars. We didn't do any beach time but if you do they have lots of fun beach toys and beach and towels. We rented two houses since our group was so large and ended up cooking at the other house but we did use the fridge and cups in the kitchen.

Spring Break Special!!!

  • 4 of 5

Definitely recommend and would rent again when visiting Catalina.

The manager Susan was very accommodating and helpful with request on reservations, pricing was perfect and very affordable for a 4days/3nights stay. I booked the house for my daughter and her girlfriends to celebrate both her birthday and enjoy their spring break mini getaway. It turned out to be just about perfect for them and Susan was so helpful and even gave the girls a spring break special an extra night stay at no additional charge. Location was very easy for them to find and was walking distance from everything they wanted to do.

The house was clean, cozy and just the right size with the comforts of home. Thank you so much for accommodating them I know it’s hard to really know if you should rent to unsupervised teens…they really enjoyed their stay on the island.

Honestly, I would have given a five star rating but they mentioned that there was no toilet paper and had to go out and purchase a package for their stay, they also thought the lighting throughout the house was too dim and felt spooked at night (maybe the light bulbs should be changed to slightly higher wattage) other than that they said it was AMAZING!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Maria. The girls were delightful. I had no idea my cleaning crew was being stingy with toilet paper. I have plenty on hand. That is now another item that I check before guests arrive. I look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Homey, convenient & no hills!

  • 4 of 5

This was clean & cozy home incredibly to everything, didn't require mountaineering gear to get there! It's on the opposite end of the Casino which is actually a nice short walk. We didn't need a cart and I felt it was secure enough to let kids explore the beach by themselves. We tried a new café every day but were able to cook anything. It also had a big oven and full fridge. It is clean, & comfy home but if you expect a stark, cookie cutter hotel/condo with turn-down service and a mint, this isn't for you. Von's grocery is related to safeway. You can just use your phone number to get your discounts. If you don't have that, maybe Sue has a phone # you can use that will work. The express didn't have much & nothing fresh. Sue was great, letting us know what activities were possible. We had a long varied trip and Catalina was the favorite of my young teens...over LEGOLAND! Thank you very much !

Wonderful vacation home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for our Thanksgiving holiday. Susan was very accommodating letting us check in early and check out late. She also made sure we had everything we needed. We really enjoyed the movies and the games that were provided as well! My husband and I stayed with our two kids and we all really enjoyed ourselves. Great location. Thanks Susan!
