Why rent a one-room hotel room, when you can spread out in 1218 square feet (not including the two balconies). This condo is clean and comfortable with many amenities, but also very family friendly with no 'breakable' feel to it. Condo has been remodeled, including new flooring in kitchen and bathrooms; Totally refurbished master bathroom. Flat screen TV's downstairs and Master Bedroom, as well as TV in second bedroom. We are located in an end unit with plenty of light. The master bedroom has a King and the second bedroom has 2 twins. There is also a Queen sofa-couch downstairs as well as two floor mat type futons if you prefer.
This large comfortable fully furnished condo is located in the heart of Avalon. It's in town tucked into the hills on flat ground so it is easy to walk everywhere. Its just a short level 3 block walk to the beach (these are Avalon blocks so they are short). Unlike many of Avalon's hotels, this condo is located in a quiet neighborhood. Also within easy walking distance to:
* the 'green' pier
* the glass bottom boat
* miniature golf (highly recommend by my two boys - one of the best we've ever played)
* scuba diving
* paddle-boarding, kayaks, peddle boats
* botanical gardens (up by Wrigley's memorial)
* historic Casino w/ nightly first run movie (a bit further walking distance)
* Catalina museum (located out at the Casino)
* Now Open: Catalina's newest tour - Catalina Zipline eco-tour.
* and the list goes on.
We are located out of the hustle and bustle but conveniently close by. There is a Von's and Von's express (smaller, but closer by) within a short walk to pick up necessities.
Of course you could choose to do nothing at all. With two large balconies (one with a partial ocean view), relaxing at your new home away from home couldn't be better.
When you are not busy swimming at Avalon's beach (Descanso beach club is also a nice alternative and has crystal clear water), you can enjoy swimming in one of the few pool/spa's on the Island. I believe there are only 6 pools on the island and the one at Bahia Vista is excellent. It also has a spa that is heated year round for your enjoyment. None of the hotels in town have a pool.
If you choose not to cook, Avalon has many fantastic restaurants to choose from. If you are dining with kids, I highly recommend Antonio's (you can throw your peanut shells on the floor). If it's breakfast you crave, Original Jack's is always reliable. For a more upscale dining experience, try the new Avalon Grille or Steve's Steakhouse. And brand new waterside restaurant, Avalon Bluewater.
Other activities on the island include:
This is one of the best vacation values for your money. When you factor in the free meal, a large condo that sleeps 6 (in beds) - one of the best values in Avalon.

Our family has been visiting Catalina since the 1960's. We rented many properties over the years including one at Bahia Vista. We loved the pool at the complex as well as being walking distance to the beach. When we decided to purchase, we chose a place in Bahia Vista.
For those on a budget this year, Catalina will give you that tropical island feel for much less money.
Great location! It's an easy walk into town, but far enough that you're not bothered by the noise and crowds. Speaking of noise, due to the layout of the building and location of the condo (near the stairs and the elevator) you can hear everyone that walks in the hallways, so our first night we were woken up many times with people laughing and talking, and coming and going at all times (even with all the windows closed). There is a small pool and hot tub, very nice after a day of hiking and exercising!
The condo itself is very spacious, with plenty of room to spread out. It's a two-story condo, with the living room and kitchen on the lower level, and master bedroom and bathroom, and second bedroom (two twin beds) on the upper level. There is a second bathroom on the mid-level. There are two balconies, and the upper one offers a partial view to the ocean. Overall, the condo could use a little updating, especially some of the furniture and kitchen appliances, especially because it's such a great place otherwise. Some of the chairs and patio furniture are looking a little old and worn and could use a little TLC. But the condo was clean and definitely enjoyable, and all kitchen appliances worked. The only other downside was that there is no wifi. We were aware of that before renting, but still wish they offered wifi.
Overall good condo and we recommend this condo and would stay there again.
This condo is perfectly located with great ocean views, short walk into town, and large living space. Thank you Mr. Hunt for making our stay so special!!!
***only suggestion would be to have a larger bbq.
Felt just like home, we felt very comfortable and really enjoyed the view. It was a close walk to town, and everything was close by enjoyed walking. We went with a group of 10, and 6 of the 10 rented a room at a resort. Needless to say they were green with envy to see where we were. We plan to return and next time and stay longer, and next time we plan to bring the kids. :)
The condo itself is huge, with plenty of space to spread out. Condo was clean. It was nice to have beach chairs and toys. Convenient location to the heart of Avalon and the beaches. Though, the walk from the terminal was tough with three bags and a double stroller. I would recommend a taxi or bag service if you have a lot of stuff (I have two very small children). the unit is also up a lot of stairs with no elevator so it is not wheelchair accessible. The condo itself has four levels and thus would not be good for people with mobility issues. The appliances in the kitchen could use updating, but they are functional. The washer and dryer are ancient and need to be replaced. The washer doesnt work. The master bedroom was very comfortable and spacious. The kids room has a very dangerous dresser in there. It is narrow and tall with an old school huge box tv on top of it. The dresser and tv are not secured to the wall and the entire structure was very wobbly. I had to watch my two year old carefully in that room to make sure it she didn't try to climb it. I would recommend the owner fix this hazard. Other than this (and all the stairs) the condo is very family friendly. The property manager was very nice and easy to reach in case of emergency. Overall a wonderful few days in Catalina.
* Catalina zip line eco-tour * Glass bottom boat tours * Tours to the interior * Botanical garden * Golf Cart rental to tour the town.
