Perfect Catalina Cottage Experience!

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to the island for 30 years, mostly staying on the water. But boats don't grow with families, so to the land we went. You can find plenty of nice cookie cutter places to stay at in Avalon, but you will never find an original cottage like this one! This cottage is a classic evolution of island architecture with half a century of memorabilia. There is plenty of space, lots of windows, great water pressure, well stocked kitchen, even a sewing kit. The living room (once a porch) has plenty of seating and feels like home. The cottage is right in town and it is easy to get to everything. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks Ed and Bee for sharing your treasure!

Me and my husband took our two boys 11 and 13. It was a trip of a lifetime for all of us. There is so much to do which I found to be a surprise. I love that you can walk anywhere you want to go. Just a relaxing, slower paced, easy going community. The water was warm (72), clear, and clean. Kids were asleep every night by 7:30 due to just having fun all day. We rented a golf cart for an hour and followed the scenic route to see as much of the island as possible. The views were just like the postcards. Just breathtaking. The locals were all so nice and helpful with our many questions. We have started saving for next year already!!!!!! Our cottage had so much island character. Skylight in the kids room, every cooking utensil you can think of so you can save some money by cooking at home. Bathroom was huge. No need for air conditioning because the island breezes kept everything nice and cool. Night life was filled with tiny white lights everywhere with lots of live music going on all around and a walk to Olafs for a waffle cone.

Exceptional Stay on Catalina Island

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on July 6th and departed on July 27th. During this time frame, we did everything we wanted to do on the island. Most importantly rested from a busy business schedule. Denise is a joy!! We had a concern with the cottage and it was fixed within 1 hour. Laundry was a blessing as we didn't bring lots of clothing. WiFi would have been great but we really weren't there to work. This was a vintage beach cottage, and everything in it was perfect. Walk to everything. Beach as close as you can get. Only concern was the "other" people who rented. Not to many people are quite. But after 21 days we understood the rhythm of Catalina Island. It's the best vintage beach cottage. You truly can not go wrong!!

Decent bargain

  • 4 of 5
Location was excellent and the nightly rate was affordable compared to other Avalon options for the same # of guests. Be sure to go only with close friends or family though, as the walls are thin and spaced with windows too, so you hear it all. Beds were firm/comfortable, but the sofabed really only holds one adult, not two (2 kids would fit though). Amenities were good, although wi-fi would be a great addition. BIGGEST PEEVE: for $125, we didn't enjoy doing all the sheets and towels used on fairly slow W/D to make the 10 am departure time - it really reduced the value of the departure day to have to set a 7 am alarm and get cleaning... But, our cleaning deposit was returned quickly, and relations with the Property Manager were easy and positive, so that was great.

Great location, easy access.

All 5 of us really enjoyed our stay. Everything we needed was in the house or very near by so we felt at home. Nice and clean! Loved the original cottage feel of the place.
