Overview

Catalina Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

If you want to be in the heart of town and walk anywhere this is it. It is on the first block, steps to the sand and steps to any restaurant or bar. Right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so easy if you want a tour or event. Two nice decks, you can have a drink and enjoy the views or people watch. All newly redone, nice everything. Sound throughout along with flatscreen bluray and mp3 dock. It technically is a one bedroom but it is 1100 sq ft with two euroloungers that fold out and all bedding/towels included. This is a fun place to go and you will love it, we do.

Turnkey Perfect.

  • 5 of 5
Marty's yellow house is flexible for whatever you want to do. Romantic getaway; it is clean and cozy. Very comfortable and accommodating with recent remodeling. Adventure base; the bikes, paddle boards and kayak are terrific for exploring the island. Diving is close and charters are easy to arrange. Getting away; just chill on the balcony and watch the sun pass on over. Shopping and groceries are around the corner. Walk down to the Casino and catch a movie. The yellow house is perfect for whatever you want to do on your vacation. Another bonus is Marty's communication. He'll text you to see that everything works and if you need something, he'll do his best to help you out. He's a good dude.

Perfect pied-a-terre in Avalon!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the yellow house. Perfect for our family of four with school-age kids. It's bigger than it looks on the pictures, but it's on two floors, so not good for very little kids (stairs inside the unit and stairs to get up to unit). Location is literally 1/2 block from the beach, but no noise at night. Spent lots of time on the balconies looking out at the harbor and people-watching. The 'toys' were great and saved us a ton on rental fees (bikes, kayak for two with lifevests, stand-up paddleboards, etc. . . ). Bring bike helmets if you want them - we tried to rent them and they were $10 each for the day! Marty the owner was very responsive - even sent me a text about the weather the morning we were due to arrive. Thank you for a really lovely and memorable Thanksgiving.

Catalina living!

We had a great time and staying at this awesome place made it even better!! Our boat arrived early and Marty allowed us to check in early... It was such a relief to know we could instantly relax upon arrival. The bikes were a great bonus; they make exploring around the island fun. Marty gave the freedom to feel like the place was ours...it was a cute safe upstairs downstairs unit with... Nice decks and big windows

Fabulous rental - so much so that I hate to share because I am afraid we might not get it next time!

  • 5 of 5
My review title sums it up. Fabulous vacation rental but I don't want to get the word out for fear it will become too busy and we cannot get it again! :/ We had a great stay (2 adults; 2 kids - 10 & 8 yrs). Perfect location. Great amount of space for a lovely weekend away. Everything was in excellent condition (tv got a little tricky when the kids wanted to watch it as they fell asleep). We will definitely be back! Thank you.

Love the YELLOW HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent location - close (steps) to everything, but private enough not to hear all the noise from the main street.
Beautiful, well-appointed, comfortable, casual interior - lovely stone floors and baths, new kitchen, and an awesome bed.
Toys!! - several very good bikes, two paddle boards that were easy to carry to the water, basketball, kayak, golf clubs, movies...
Exceptional Owner - He went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed to know to have a fabulous weekend. When I had a question, he responded immediately. Owner is cool and laid back, and takes pride in making his home a fun, chic, clean, place to spend time on Catalina Island.
I highly recommend the Yellow House!

Awesome place right near everything!

  • 5 of 5
This place is awesome! Great location, less than a block from the beach. You can practically walk everywhere in Catalina regardless, but this place made it so much easier. Stores, restaurants, pier, water, boat dock. Everything is super close. The cost was better than other comparable places we had found, however...
...this place provides adult bikes, 2 SUP's (Stand up paddleboards), a 2 person kayak (heavy, but 2 grownups can walk it down to beach), and other beach amenities. Most other places dont have this, and if you want to have any fun on the water, youll need to rent all this at ridiculously overpriced fees.
The house was clean, neatly appointed, and has a brand new stove!
Marty (the owner) was super easy to work with. He was in constant contact with me from the beginning (which was important because I actually inquired about 2015 by mistake!), simple things were very easily taken care of. We didnt have a broom, but we had a messy kid, he had the housecleaners deliver a broom within the hour.
We traveled as a family of four, with a 7 year old, and a 4 year old. I wouldnt say the house is "kid friendly", as there are 2 flights of tiled stairs. however, there is a cool storage chest on both floors which holds the bedding for the convertible beds. We just picked those up and moved them a few feet in front of the stairwell at night, so we didnt worry about the kids falling down if they had to find the bathroom in the middle of the night.
My only "gripe", is the noise on the street. I am not sure how noisy it is on other parts of the island, but being close to the waterfront means you have the trash trucks coming by early in the am, delivery trucks for restaurants, and then the normal hustle and bustle of the Catalina with all of its visitors constantly wandering around. Closing all the balcony doors remedied that, but it would have been nice to have the fresh air blowing in at night.
Perhaps add a rolling cart for the kayak to make it easier?
I feel like I am looking for things to complain about.
Ill definitley be in touch the next time we go back. it really was a great place. Thanks Marty!

Map

Included with the rental is a tandem Kayak, 4 bikes and two stand up paddleboards. You have to carry them to the beach which is less than a block. You have to be responsible to know how to use them, I am not offering any instruction. There are life vests but no helmets. Nice new stuff, and also includes beach chairs and an umbrella, two sets of golf clubs.

Notes:
This property is located on the first block in Avalon, you can walk anywhere. The 4th of July parade goes right in front of the place. There are two nice decks with views of the harbor and the ocean and look directly across to the Wrigley Mansion. City lights at night and a short walk to your favorite Bars and Restaurants. This place was recently totally remodeled and has not been rented until now. We are right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so very convenient for tours.
