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!

Great family friendly condo.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a family spring break vacation. This three bedroom unit was perfect for our 5 adults and two young children. Everything we needed was there.

The location was perfect! Beautiful view of town from this third story condo, walking distance to everything but tucked up behind all of the busy downtown.

Would recommend this unit to anyone visiting Catalina.

Beautiful, well appointed home with a gorgeous view of Avalon.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property. Loved the island. Would stay here again in two seconds. The main attraction for our family of six adults was the three bedrooms/three bathrooms but we ended up loving everything about this property. There are a lot of stairs on this property but they are worth it because they are what give you the amazing view. Karin is an excellent communicator and sent reminders about check in/check out procedures which was very helpful. Thank you!

Nice, modern condo with great views and comfortable beds.

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed staying at this condo. The views of Avalon were beautiful, especially from the two outdoor decks. The bedrooms, bathrooms, living area, and kitchen were all modern and spacious which was quite nice. The beds were very comfortable. A few things around the house were broken but nothing major. To get more exercise we would take the 100 stairs to the condo instead of the elevator. The hot tub was a nice bonus in December. The pool was too cold to get in (I think 60 degrees). We would definitely recommend this place to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review, Jodi! We are happy you enjoyed your stay at our Avalon home. I really appreciate you pointing out the items that need repair, as we don't always hear about these things until it's too late... We like to think of the numerous stairs as our workout, as well, that is once we get our luggage to the unit!! Unfortunately, the heating of the pool & spa is up to the complex manager's discretion, but we are working on this. Thank you again for trusting us with your Catalina escape and we hope to have you back soon!

Great location, views and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with a few couples to celebrate a birthday. Karin was really thoughtful and provided all the necessary instructions to find and access the condo. It’s located a short and easy walk from everything. The views from the balconies are gorgeous. Everything you could need is provided and the decor is modern and lovely. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space to lounge around together. Highly recommend.

Great property with great landlord!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly how it appeared in the pictures and was perfect for our family for the weekend as a place to relax between a friend's wedding activities. Ocean views from the balconies are beautiful. Karin is really nice, helpful and responsive.
