Overview

About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

If you want to be in the heart of town and walk anywhere this is it. It is on the first block, steps to the sand and steps to any restaurant or bar. Right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so easy if you want a tour or event. Two nice decks, you can have a drink and enjoy the views or people watch. All newly redone, nice everything. Sound throughout along with flatscreen bluray and mp3 dock. It technically is a one bedroom but it is 1100 sq ft with two euroloungers that fold out and all bedding/towels included. This is a fun place to go and you will love it, we do.

NEW POLICY, NO REFUND DUE TO CANCELLATION. Sorry, it was getting to be a pain in the neck. VRBO does offer travel insurance.

Notes:
This property is located on the first block in Avalon, you can walk anywhere. The 4th of July parade goes right in front of the place. There are two nice decks with views of the harbor and the ocean and look directly across to the Wrigley Mansion. City lights at night and a short walk to your favorite Bars and Restaurants. This place was recently totally remodeled and has not been rented until now. We are right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so very convenient for tours.

Perfect for a family a four.

  • 5 of 5

The yellow house exceeded our expectations. Was clean and fully stocked with kitchen supplies. The toy room which included beach necessities and water sporting good was a great touch. The location was perfect and walking distance from everything. Golf cart only needed if wanted to do a big tour up the mountain. Marty was more than accommodating and very accessible. We would for sure come back to the yellow house.

Convenient, excellent retreat for two

  • 5 of 5

As per previous reviews, this apartment is conveniently located a block away from the waterfront, an easy walk from the ferry landing. Located on the second and third floors, the apartment includes a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom on the second floor. The third floor is a large bedroom with queen-sized bed and full bath.

On the first floor is a toy room with bikes, stand up paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling equipment and golf clubs. Very convenient for taking advantage of the myriad of adventures on Catalina.

Finally no review would be complete without mentioning the great communication and information provided by Marty. We never met Marty in person, but all communications were prompt and very helpful. Truly a caring host.

Clean & Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the yellow house. It was my first visit to the island. The house is close to everything. Check out the behind the scenes tour of the Wrigley Casino and a movie at the Avalon Theatre. We found it difficult to find good restaurants, so, I'd stick to Marty's list. Would recommend...

Clean, relaxing, fully stocked and perfectly located. Youre going to save a ton of $$ staying here

  • 5 of 5

Marty is great, so much better than dealing with some rigid, impersonal management company! Professional and easygoing, he is flexible and quick to respond, I cannot say enough about how well he manages his property. The property itself is as oasis with a well stocked kitchen and toys that are going to save you a boatload of cash on rentals if you plan on spending any time on the water. He got smart with the code pad on the door so you don't ever lose the key while out and about. For my fellow drinkers: the house is stumbling distance from nearly every bar in town, I highly recommend the lobster trap less than a block away. This is the perfect place, I know where I'm staying next time I'm in Catalina!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little getaway place to stay in Catalina. The house is very nice inside - upscale! Appliances are new. The bed is very comfy. Short easy walking access to everything in town. And a view of the harbor from the balconies. A storage locker for your luggage before and after check in & checkout. Toys, like bikes, kayaks, & beach chairs also provided. The owner is really nice too!

Location

Included with the rental is two single man Kayaks, 4 bikes and two stand up paddleboards. You have to carry them to the beach which is less than a block. You have to be responsible to know how to use them, I am not offering any instruction. There are life vests but no helmets. Nice new stuff, and also includes beach chairs and an umbrella, two sets of golf clubs.
