About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Catalina Island known as the island of romance is the perfect choice for visitors looking to escape and experience the warmth of a small-town in a fun island destination. Catalina has a year-round Mediterranean climate with warm sunny days and cool evening breezes. Fun activities include scuba, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, golf, parasailing, shopping, or just relaxing on the beach.

Our Catalina home is a wonderfully warm and sunny cottage just 2 blocks from the beach, shops, boating, and other entertainment. It is located on “the flats” in the center of town for an easy walk to all destinations. It has 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths and sleeps up to 4 people. The home is decorated with a cheerful Catalina/beach theme. The home is available for a two night quick get-away for an extended rejuvenation stay.

This was a complete misrepresentation. It is not a beach house. It's 3 blocks away.

  • 1 of 5

The house is run down. Furniture should have been replaced 20 years ago.

No insulation of any kind. Hot all day. Cold at night. You can hear every word from the house next door at normal conversation level.

Carpet is stained bathroom is disgusting.

I'm warning you off. Unless you are homeless this is not a nice place to stay.

Convenient, clean and cozy. Not for the pickiest people expecting modern, private or large lodging

  • 3 of 5

It was dark when we arrived and it took us about 5 minutes to locate lights. There aren't any light switches on the walls due to the age of this cottage. We ate out for every meal so don't have much info on kitchen supplies. Beds are old and squeaky. Doors and floors are extremely squeaky and walls are thin. Once someone is up and moving about the house (even the neighbors) you'll know it. Bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

There are tvs, movies, books, Catalina visitor pamphlets and plenty of clean linens for a comfortable/fun stay. Carpet is in desperate need of replacement and there are some uneven floors to watch out for. The windows that do open have no way of being held open so it got a little stuffy during a mid 70s afternoon. The wall heaters are small and not too effective, but better than nothing. The neighborhood felt safe and the location was close to shopping and restaurants. We are easy going so this property suited our needs.

It is a 20 minutes walk to Zipline Eco Tours which was absolutely fun and worth the price. I'll look for other rental options if I return, however, I'd stay here again if it still beat the price of other properties significantly.

Cute and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

I had to give this place 5 stars. The price afforded us to vacation without stress. This little house was built in the early 1900's I believe. It was very small, but really clean. No one has air conditioning in Catalina, so during the day it can get hot, once you open the windows, cools right down. So convenient, the lil house is just a quick walk down the street to all the little shops (the lil Vons grocery is on the same street) It has two small bathrooms but only one with a shower. We loved it because it was perfect price for the perfect time that I had and maybe if I needed to cook, that might be inconvenient, as it is quite small. Deborah, the owner, was very easy to reach. Never had a problem getting a question answered. If you are looking for high end/ fancy, this isn't the place for you. But quaint, clean, cozy, I would do it again.

Poor, good location, good if you want cheap, go in the fall or spring and do not want to cook.

  • 1 of 5

We were there in August for 5 days and the house was so hot inside that you could not stay in it for any time during the day or early evening, even with the two ceiling fans and a portable one (no air conditioning). Part of the reason is the stove is very old and the heat from the pilot light is so hot it heats up the kitchen area. The refrigerator took 3 days to cool down enough for food to be stored in it, the counter space to prep food is 2 feet by 2 feet, the utensils were limited (no spatula, 2 steak knives, etc..) as well as glasses ( although there were plenty of wine glasses and coffee cups). The house looked clean but when I spilled on the kitchen floor and wiped it up the rag was black!
