Overview

Catalina Island Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This Home is privately owned and family operated. This home does not come with a golf cart, it is against city policy as to not compete with local rental companies. There are 2 and 3 night minimums for winter and summer, we do not rent for single nights. Please note that the association only heats the spa on the weekends during the winter months. We also just removed all the upstairs carpet so now the entire unit is hardwood floors! We also just added a portable wagon at the front door for your use to and from the market or the beach.

Located above of Santa Catalina's Quaint European Style City of Avalon this Split-Level Penthouse Suite is about a block or two from the Crescent Street Beach Walk and White Sandy Beaches; fine dining, fast food, street musicians, entertainment, SHOPPING and just plain fun! The Bahia Vista Condo development offers one of the few Pools and Spas on Catalina Island.

Panorama Views of the Ocean, Avalon Harbor, the City, and Hillside Canyons from All of the rooms and both Balconies.

Catalina is All About Island Lifestyle!

Try out the new Catalina Zipline and EcoTour Excursion, as well as the NEW Undersea Adventure…coming Spring of 2011! Take a bus or van ride up to the Airport in the Sky and have lunch and maybe…..see the California Bison (Buffalo) grazing in the fields below. Hike, walk, bike or obtain transportation to the center of the Island or to the far end development of Two Harbors.

Yes, this is a VACATION and the 'Island' awaits you with numerous activities such as Segway Tours of the City, swimming, boating, golfing, tennis, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, para-sailing, miniature golfing, glass-bottom boat rides, dinner cruises, shopping, fine restaurants, mountain biking and electric bike tours, Haunted Catalina Tours and so much more.

In the 1940s, 1950's and 1960's the Chicago Cubs used to hold 'Spring Training' in Avalon. Learn about Catalina’s history by visiting the Casino museum, and the Country Club Restaurant adjacent to the golf course, which features the original Chicago Cubs Clubhouse and locker rooms, as well as, numerous photographs of prior year Cubs baseball stars. It’s the only place in town to get a “great” cigar.

Find out which Movie Stars, dignitaries, Presidents and “lesser luminaries” walked the streets of Avalon and haunted the Catalina landscape in the early days of film making. The Museum will show you movies of the way Stars were born during the hayday of the movie studios…and where the “bodies” are buried…so to speak.

26 Miles Across the Sea…Santa Catalina Island is just a short 1-hour ferry boat cruise from Long Beach, San Pedro, Newport Beach and Dana Point. You’ll enjoy your stay and the memories you make.

Why Dean and Tina Chrispen chose Catalina Island

We have been vacationing in Avalon for a number of years and found just the right luxury condominium to eventually become our retirement home. We love Avalon and know you will come to love it too.

What makes this condo unique

This is an Upscale Condominium located in a beach community, just a short two block walk from the ocean and night life. There is a Pool and Spa on the premises and elevators to assist you for ingress and egress. Catalina Island is the ultimate West Coast Island vacation destination. Remember, it's just 26 miles across the sea...

The view!!!

  • 4 of 5

We felt like we were on top of the world. Spent a lot of time out on both balconies.

Very comfortable and convenient rental. 5 minute walk to town. Enjoyed the Jacuzzi and (unheated) pool. Beds were very comfortable. We would definitely stay again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Cindy, Thank you so much for taking the time to review, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, believe me for what the association charges per month that pool and spa should be heated all year long, We hope you can stay with us again! Sincerely, Dean and Tina

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this condo! It was extremely clean, has an incredible view of Avalon from the multiple balconies, and it's just a short walk from all the action in Avalon. The free WiFi was also a bonus since we had a hard time getting 4G reception on the island. We would absolutely stay here again!

Time well spent in this condo

  • 5 of 5

I had a chance to look at this property while I was searching for vacation rental places in catalinavacations website. I did not find anything that was this good in terms of description and pictures. I emailed the property owners thru vrbo and they responded quickly. The price for the spring season was reasonable. We called up to checkout late and checkin also a little early due to our ferry timings and it was all well accommodated since there were other check-in on the day we were leaving. The location is awesome and its not that far from the shore. It takes about 5min if you are a fast walker like me. We enjoyed the morning breakfast and used the grill couple of times. Swimming pool was very good too. The home had some board games and 3 TVs and a blu ray player. Even had sand toys and floats for our 3 year old. I recommend taking the golf cart ride, semi-submarine tour of fish for kids and zipline tour for adults. Enjoy!! Our next trip to catalina will be in this home for sure. Very happy with our choice and the owners and the housekeeping.

Met expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this rental to anyone wanting to stay in Avalon. It was clean upon arrival, spacious, kid friendly, and a great location. We walked everywhere for the 4 days we stayed. The pool was heated and perfect for the kids. Stay here!

SPECTACULAR FAMILY EASTER AT PARADISE PENTHOUSE

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a magic weekend on the beautiful Catalina Island. Three days with our 14, 11 and 7 year old kids.

A 10 minute walk from the ferry and a few sharp flights of stairs (don't worry there is an elevator as well) we arrived to amazing views from two balconies, roomy unit over several levels, very clean, comfortable beds, incredibly quiet at night, clean pool and Jacuzzi. PERFECT for our family needs. Felt like a little slice of Europe. The kitchen was well stocked even though we ate out every day.

Walking everywhere we zip-lined, snorkelled Lover's Cove, hung out at the Descanso Beach Club, watched Furious Seven at the fabulous Avalon Theatre with half of the town on Saturday night, took the golf cart out for a spin and decadently ate out at The Lobster Trap (fabulous, noisy, local feel), The Avalon Grille (amazing seafood and cheesecake to die for), Bluewater Avalon Seafood Restaurant (more amazing seafood) and happily waited 20 minutes each morning for a fabulous breakfast at Original Jack's Country Kitchen. We shopped the shops and the markets and had a great Easter hunt with the locals.

With school and sporting commitments we booked last minute and Dean was able to cater to our last minute needs of a family friendly place, pool, extra night added on and late checkout. Nothing was too much.

This goes down as one of our best family holidays ever. We will be back!
