Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

THIS HOME IS FAMILY OWNED & OPERATED. This home does not come with a golf cart, it is against city policy as to not compete with local rental companies. There are 2 and 3 night minimums for winter and summer, we do not rent for single nights. Also there is a 6 person limit per our rental agreement that we have with the association, if you bring more than 6 people you will jeopardize our agreement and you will forfeit your security deposit. PLEASE NOTE that the Pool is not heated during the winter months and the Jacuzzi is only heated on weekends during this time per the Condo Association. Both Pool & Jacuzzi are both heated during the summer months. We also just removed all the upstairs carpet so now the entire unit is hardwood floors! We also just added a portable wagon at the front door for your use to and from the market or the beach. While rarely needed this condo does not have air conditioning as is the norm on Catalina.

Located above of Santa Catalina's Quaint European Style City of Avalon this Split-Level Penthouse Suite is within a 5-10 minute walking distance from the Crescent Street Beach Walk and White Sandy Beaches; fine dining, fast food, street musicians, entertainment, SHOPPING and just plain fun! The Bahia Vista Condo development offers one of the few Pools and Spas on Catalina Island.

Panorama Views of the Ocean, Avalon Harbor, the City, and Hillside Canyons from All of the rooms and both Balconies.

Catalina is All About Island Lifestyle!

Try out the new Catalina Zipline and EcoTour Excursion, as well as the NEW Undersea Adventure…coming Spring of 2011! Take a bus or van ride up to the Airport in the Sky and have lunch and maybe…..see the California Bison (Buffalo) grazing in the fields below. Hike, walk, bike or obtain transportation to the center of the Island or to the far end development of Two Harbors.

Yes, this is a VACATION and the 'Island' awaits you with numerous activities such as Segway Tours of the City, swimming, boating, golfing, tennis, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, para-sailing, miniature golfing, glass-bottom boat rides, dinner cruises, shopping, fine restaurants, mountain biking and electric bike tours, Haunted Catalina Tours and so much more.

In the 1940s, 1950's and 1960's the Chicago Cubs used to hold 'Spring Training' in Avalon. Learn about Catalina’s history by visiting the Casino museum, and the Country Club Restaurant adjacent to the golf course, which features the original Chicago Cubs Clubhouse and locker rooms, as well as, numerous photographs of prior year Cubs baseball stars. It’s the only place in town to get a “great” cigar.

Find out which Movie Stars, dignitaries, Presidents and “lesser luminaries” walked the streets of Avalon and haunted the Catalina landscape in the early days of film making. The Museum will show you movies of the way Stars were born during the hayday of the movie studios…and where the “bodies” are buried…so to speak.

26 Miles Across the Sea…Santa Catalina Island is just a short 1-hour ferry boat cruise from Long Beach, San Pedro, Newport Beach and Dana Point. You’ll enjoy your stay and the memories you make.

Why Dean and Tina Chrispen chose Los Angeles area

We have been vacationing in Avalon for a number of years and found just the right luxury condominium to eventually become our retirement home. We love Avalon and know you will come to love it too.

What makes this condo unique

This is an Upscale Condominium located in a beach community, just a short two block walk from the ocean and night life. There is a Pool and Spa on the premises and elevators to assist you for ingress and egress. Catalina Island is the ultimate West Coast Island vacation destination. Remember, it's just 26 miles across the sea...

Postcard views of Avalon

  • 5 of 5

What a view! It's a perfect location to see the incredible views, within walking distance to everything but still very quiet. While at the condo, we spent much of our time on the 2 private decks enjoying the great weather. The unit and the complex were well maintained and had everything we needed. There was more than enough room for our party of 4. On the day we checked in, the onsite manager stopped by to introduce herself and to let us know to contact her if there were any problems. There was no need as we had no problems. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive. We love visiting Catalina and hope to stay at this condo on our future visits.

Great family stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was convenient walking distance to everything in town and has beautiful views. The spa and pool were nice to use and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided and it was a great stay. The only improvement could be the fold out bed in the living room but it was ok for just one person.

Great getaway in Avalon!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect fit for our group of four adults due to the two bedrooms and two full baths. Communication with the owners was great and they went above and beyond by providing us with information about the community and area. We're very physically fit so we had no difficulty climbing the stairs to reach the elevator, but the climb could be challenging for some.

Positive for sure

  • 5 of 5

Super clean, well maintained and anything you could ask for! Would use again.

Easy to work with the owners. Very responsive on email. The HOA of the building, however, needs to redo the carpets in the hallways to the condo. VERY dirty and gives a bad first impression. The views are stunning!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a review! We totally agree about the carpet in the hallways to the units an have been asking for this frequently, finally they are starting to do some of them and hopefully ours will be next. Dean and Tina

Wonderful home away from home. Stunning aerial views of the island. You can see the casino and the ocean all from the balcony of this perfect gem. Absolutely loved our stay! Would recommend in a heartbeat.
