About Catalina Island Vacation Rentals/www.civr.com

Mel Dinkel and Leslie Baer Dinkel met on non-other than Catalina Island! A few years later, we were married at Descanso Beach (highly recommended!). Catalina holds so many memories for us, and since we are not on the Island all the time, we wanted to create an 'affordable luxury' accommodation where people could make their own memories! Since lots of families come to Catalina, it had to be fun -- thus, 'La Casa Sirena' (The Mermaid House) which includes both Catalina and Mermaid themes, bright-colored and interesting tiles and aesthetic, along with a closet just for beach accessories! It also had to be romantic for couples, and so, the lush natural woods, leathers and stone, Cal King bed, fun master shower for two and extra-wide jacuzzi! In short, we wanted it to be comfortable enough to be our home away from home, and yours too!

Catalina Island Vacation Rentals/www.civr.com purchased this condo in 2009

Amazing vacation getaway rental - even better than we expected!!!!!! A++++

  • 5 of 5

When my fiancé and I first booked this unit, we were impressed by the online photos, but always expect those to look nicer than the actual unit when we go there. Not only is was this not the case, but we felt as if we rented the wrong place because of how nice (and Huge) the layout was for the price! We wanted a 2 bedroom because we had a couple join us on that Saturday night during the weekend, but we honestly felt like we rented a home big enough for a family of 5-6 people... Beautifully decorated, homey, and perfectly clean... We wish we got the unit for the entire week on Catalina instead of just the weekend! The facilities in the building have a pool area that you would expect from a hotel, but the charming layout of all the units makes you feel as if you're living in a community, not a rental unit. The kitchen and large wooden dining room table also gave us the chance to entertain our guests with a gourmet dinner and bottle of wine that ended up feeling, again, as if we were entertaining at our home. When we did venture out to restaurants, hikes, and nighttime fun, it felt as if everything was within walking distance from all downtown Avalon has to offer... We expected a nice place at a great rate... We expected enough room to feel relaxed and and could invite some friends to join us at without feeling cramped... We didn't expect to rent a home with enough space and decor to feel as we were still at our home on the mainland, while still soaking in the island feel and mermaid themed surroundings... Thank you for more than we expected!!! It's not all the time we stay in a rental property where we can feel the owners actually care about who's staying there vs. who they can just rent it to!! We found our new home away from home when we visit your beautiful island!!! Ron & Xiomara

Good Just Got Great! Long Time Renters Looking Forward to Upgrades Like Shower for 2 & Jacuzzi Tub

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I have been staying here each summer for that past seven years and we are sold on the Bahia Vista complex. We were sold on unit ("La Casa Sirena") even before it was remodeled. It's close to the entrance, ground floor, close to the pool. Complex has a large pool and a hot tub that are open until 10 (good rule, keeps after hours noise down) and it is an overall quiet location in a perfect place to walk to about everything. We stay with my brother's family, all renting separate units. On the remodel, we are anticipating the goodies like the new, big kitchen and walk in shower for two in the master bath. My wife is especially looking forward to the jacuzzi tub IN the unit! I don't usually care about decorations but I know our daughter is going to be crazy for the mermaids. I would have recommended this unit to anyone prior to their (what looks like extensive) remodeling as a comfortable place, exceptional value.

The most visited tourist destination on Catalina Island is the city of Avalon. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the “mainland”, Avalon is the perfect place to take a break from the demands of daily life. With so many activities to choose from, your visit to Avalon can be adventure-packed or filled with rest and relaxation. With its year-round Mediterranean climate, it’s the ideal place to enjoy ocean air and sunshine.

While in Avalon, visitors enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, golfing, hiking, biking, shopping, strolling the museum and art galleries, a day at a spa, guided sightseeing tours or renting golf carts to explore the city on their own. You can also zip line, 'SNUBA,' tube, stand-up paddleboard -- or, just lay on the beach!

Avalon’s beachfront is lined with South Beach, Middle Beach and Step Beach—all are conveniently located in the center of town and within easy walking distance of hotels, restaurants, shopping, and land activities.

If you venture a little further through town you will come to The Descanso Beach Club, located just beyond the Casino Building. It is the perfect place to enjoy the sun, lounge on the beach, snorkel, kayak, cruise around on stand up paddle board, or swim in the crystal clear water. With new Cabanas and lounge chairs available you get the ultimate in beach relaxation. Restrooms, outdoor showers, dressing rooms and chair/umbrella rentals are available. This private beach also offers a seaside bar and restaurant in Avalon, so you can dine and enjoy your beverage with your feet in the sand.

Another activity that is not to be missed is heading outside the city gate to the beautiful interior of Catalina Island. One of the unique guided tours will provide you with history and amazing views of the undeveloped outback of the Island. Or explore the isolated coves, secluded beaches, miles of hiking trails, beautiful plants and native animals that abound just outside of Avalon.
