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!

This house is perfect for a family group. Plenty of room to socialize and sleep (good beds).

  • 5 of 5

This property has a great view of the Avalon harbor and town. It is well equipped for cooking - we made Xmas dinner and enjoyed family time for the holiday. Having 2 master bedrooms with king size beds was important to us - prevented a fight over who gets the king bed!! The bathrooms are excellent and beds comfortable. It was very clean and well kept. Owner is very responsive. The weather wasn't quite warm enough to enjoy the 2 outdoor decks as much as we would have liked but the view is fabulous. Our best VRBO experience.

Nice unit, exceptionally nice owner

  • 5 of 5

This unit is nice and met expectations. The ad describes it well; tastefully decorated, nice furnishings, comfortable beds with pretty newer linens. The housekeeper does a good job, it was very clean. Only bummer was that the pool and hot tub are not scheduled to be heated during the week in winter. Turned out that the hot tub was heated while we were there, probably because it was a holiday, but don't expect it if you're traveling during the off season.

A few things surpassed expectations. The owner Karin was extremely helpful. She was willing to accommodate an early check in which helped a ton due to our morning ferry, and she had extra kitchen tools delivered in case we wanted to cook a Thanksgiving feast. We were also pleased by how easy it was to add a bed for our 7th guest- the aero bed was very high quality and there was an abundance of extra bed linens.

Overall if you're looking to house 6+ guests on Catalina you probably won't find better accommodations than this, we enjoyed our stay.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place with a view. Tucked up in the hill, not too far from town. Nice decorations and comfortable beds.

My family had a great time as we were there for a triathlon. We counted 100 stair steps to get from the sidewalk to the front door of the condo. There is also an elevator if you are not the walking type. Karin was also a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for a lovely weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Darcy! Yes! There are lots of stairs, but we like to think of them as an added health benefit ;-)

Updated condo

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Condo was clean, updated, and accommodated our group of 7 adults easily (one adult on an air mattress). There are a lot of stairs but the pay off is worth it!! Our only suggestion would be a better equipped kitchen with good knives, casserole dishes, olive oil, etc. As far as activities we'd commend Bike Catalina with Randy (very informative), snorkeling off the casino, and diving. Would definitely return again....

Amazing stay in Avalon

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here I was just amazing a great view of Avalon and the ocean we will try to stay here again in the future

what would have made it even more amazing would have been to find a massage therapist and do a treatment on the top deck over looking Avalon

Absolutely amazing. The view was gorgeous and Karin was so great to work with. We highly recommend .

  • 4 of 5

Loved every minute of it. Just wish it was pool season time because the one day we could swim the grandkids loved it.Karin was so good to work with. Very kind and thoughtful .We would recommend anyone wanting a beautiful home and amazing view to consider her home on Catalina Island. Yummy restaurants . The weather was perfect. If you have tons of luggage and people it was a little harder with steps to get to her unit. There was the elevator that helped somewhat. We stayed a week with a very large family so that was a little harder for us. But it was still very worth it once we got settled. For sure don't let that stop you.
