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!

Beautiful property. Perfect location.

The condo was perfect for our college reunion weekend. It's completely updated and beautifully decorated. Super spacious. Great deck. Catalina Island was such a pleasant surprise.

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....
