About Karin Erickson

We grew up in the frozen tundra of Minnesota and relocated to southern California for our careers. Over the years, we've spent time on Catalina and have always enjoyed the low-key, relaxing life-style. To us, Catalina has a Mediterranean flair, similar to Capri, Italy, with it's charming restaurants and shops, beautiful little harbor and undulating hillsides. We are fortunate to own a piece of paradise and want to share it with others!

Lovely place to stay - amazing view, nice unit, and convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This was a very, very nice rental - we could not have found a place or location we liked better and the view was amazing. We were three couples and two generations and I think the young couples liked it just as much as we did...this is my 5th time renting a home through VRBO and every one in every location has been great. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Helpful host, beautifully finished, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 days at Karin's property for a friend's wedding. There were 3 couples, and we all had plenty of space for ourselves. The condo was completely upgraded, clean and comfortable. The location was perfect, a block from the church the wedding was in, a couple blocks to the central area and a very short, manageable walk from the ferry landing. Karin was extremely helpful from the time we booked the house, to the day we left. The view was incredible from the bedrooms and living room, the pool area was clean and not too crowded. I have already recommended this listing to a few friends, and we plan on contacting Karin during our next stay on the island!

Wonderful weekend in a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this condo with several family members, ranging in age from 2 to 68. The condo itself was very nice and very comfortable for our group of 8 (using all beds and provided air mattresses), and the views from the balconies were to-die-for. It was an easy walk from the ferry and close to everything in town, yet a bit quieter than other areas, which we liked. Karin was very easy to communicate with, quickly responding to emails and texts. And she went out of her way to accommodate us, not only by allowing early and late check-in/out, but also by ordering a pack 'n play to arrive before we got there! Our only disappointment was that the pool wasn't heated on the weekend like we expected (though the hot tub was). If I have one recommendation for the owners, it would be to consider adding a large pot that could accommodate cooking something like pasta or chili for a group of 8 (which I believe is max occupancy), and a large frying pan. Although the rest of the kitchen was well equipped, the pots and pans didn't seem quite up to the task of cooking for 8. That said, it made us change plans from making pasta to grilling burgers on the balcony, which was nothing to cry about! All-in-all, a great condo and a great experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review, Heather! I appreciate your feedback on the pots & pans, and really strive to ensure we have the necessary tools! Your suggestions will help to outfit the kitchen as best we can! I'm glad you were happy with the Pack N Play, as I've been wanting to add one, and your stay prompted that!! Thanks for trusting us with your stay and we hope you'll contact us next time you're in Avalon!

Spacious, quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends chose this apartment instead of multiple hotel rooms so we could enjoy the experience of having a common area to visit, while having the privacy of separate bedrooms and private baths. The location had a beautiful deck to view Avalon and the ocean, top kitchen equipment and clean, updated furnishings in all rooms. It was a bit of a hike with our luggage from the ferry, and all uphill, but we got away from the noise of the cars, trucks and golf carts which continually navigate the downtown streets. We would stay here again! A request to the owner to offer alternative pillows (we all felt they were too dense), some coffee pods for the Keurig(maybe just one per person to get started), and we couldn't find the ironing board... Thank you for all the attention to details in your beautiful unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review, Kathy! Yes! We are a bit of a walk from the ferry, especially with luggage, but then again, I believe you'd have this with most accommodations on the Island! I apologize for not having an ironing board, and I'm not sure what happened to it, but I guess we'll need to replace it!! Thank you for staying with us!

Great condo, great location, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Karin's condo for a low-key bachelorette weekend. Karin was amazing at promptly returning emails and texts, and answered all questions that I had. The condo was close to town, easy to access (lots of stairs - although there is also an elevator!), and had amazing views! The condo was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. It was very spacious with 3 full bedrooms and bathrooms. We had a fantastic trip and would definitely rent again!! Thank you, Karin!
