Perfect home for your vacation. Our home has two bedrooms one with King size bed and the second one with two twins. In the living room we have a Queen size Futon bed that two more people can sleep in. We welcome families and individuals who enjoy the activities of Catalina Island including bike riding, hiking, boating, beach activities and diving. Our rustic cottage was built in 1912 and retains the charm of early Avalon. Come stay in our home and enjoy the ambiance of a genuine historical setting. Amenities include cable TV, Wi Fi, air conditioning, completely equipped kitchen and washer & dryer.
My wife and I stayed here for a cozy Saturday evening with our 20lb terrier. The house was easy to find, simple to check into, and a great home base for our Catalina overnighter. I found myself lost in the house's character, so many cool antiques (most of which we're in working condition) and decorations. You know that good times have been had in this spot! The location relative to town is just simply awesome. It's less than a 2 minute walk to the beach and the main street of Avalon. It's definitely an older house, so just know that going in and don't have an unrealistic expectation.
Things to know:
Heat/AC units. It was either WAY to hot or freezing cold (due to user/operator error),
The pilot light on the gas heater went out after about 15 mins of use,
The house is on a "main road" of Catalina so it can be noisy with the golf carts and people walking by.
The island is in severe drought conditions, so bring your own water (or pay $0.50 for cheap water bottles at restaurants)
There's 1 bathroom, which served our needs more than fine
All in all, the house was fantastic and we would certainly stay again. Definitely was enough room for 2 adults and a dog... would have been even nicer with another couple to maximize the house's space.
Booking the home was super easy. Michael Ponce (the property manager) was super responsive, adaptive and flexible to our schedule change. Total pro. Would be glad to work (and rent from) with him again. Thanks Michael!
Wonderful beach cottage built in 1908 and then added onto, filled with antiques. Absolutely charming. The only drawback is one bathroom for six people just doesn't cut it. Otherwise we'd easily return.
This was a perfect house for our ladies' night in Avalon. It's incredibly close to where the ferry comes in and all of the businesses in Avalon - restaurants, Vons, cafes, bars, and golf cart rental. The hosts are great and right next door and very responsive! The house is clean and adorable. Great little getaway. Would definitely return, and recommend to friends.
Four of us (2 generation family trip) stayed one night at this cute cottage with a great location. The property is located in the heart of Catalina, one block away from main strip. Given the location, it was surprisingly quiet. The cottage was decorated in a fun vintage manner and was surprisingly roomy given the location. Beds were comfortable, yet rooms abutted to each other with thin walls diminishing privacy. Carpets showed obvious wear and tear but manager told us that the plan was to remove the stained carpets in the near future for wood floors. We would definitely return!
Photos on VRBO accurately reflect this home. A bit rustic and quirky. You can see home was added on to over time built in the early 1900's. I understand in Catalina this is typical according to a local. You can't beat the location close to water and dock. Manager very helpful and responsive.
Location, management and charm! My first impression online was that this property would be a place to stick my college-aged kids. It indeed was a perfect location for us and younger children.
Yes it's older and charming and has evolved over the decades, but it's exactly what we needed. We had fun with the decor, plenty of sleeping areas, and the location really is absolutely unbelievable. It was not noisy; it was comfortable, air-conditioned and we had everything we needed.
The owner and management representative were gracious.
I own two luxury vacation homes and have some experience. These people did it right. Would absolutely come back
