Perfectly quirky !

6 of us gals stayed here for 2 nights and loved every second of it. The house is right in town, awesome location, and oozing with quirky charm. Very comfy. Very easy. Fits into the Catalina vibe perfectly. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The home was very old, but clean, quaint and spacious for us - 4 adults and one child. While it only had one bathroom, we made it work and it was fine for us. We are family. We loved the location, just a short 2 blocks from the beach which was great since we had a 3 year old with us, but the adults also loved the short walk. In fact, we could walk to every place we went. Michael is friendly and easy to work with. There were a few things that needed attention and I mentioned it to him and I am sure he will take care of it so no need to say more.

We were very pleased that we chose a home with air conditioning since it was in the 80s.

We would definitely choose this home again when we come back..........hopefully soon!

Perfect funky Catalina cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The close-to-the-Beach location is the best thing about this place! It was built in 1912, the walls are thin and uninsulated, the decor is eclectic and random, and all of that makes it perfect for this area. The 6 of us stayed comfortably, the washer and dryer were a plus, the air conditioning was really helpful for the specific week we were there! Check/in and out were easy, everyone was nice, we made great memories.

Fantastic Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for a family or group getaway to Catalina Island. The home is just a block away from the beach and all the activities in Avalon. The home has all necessary amenities and is extraordinarily comfortable across the board. The photos of the home don't give it quiet justice--the decor is on point and perfect as a beach home.
