Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Classic Catalina cottage with big, sliding windows and plenty of room to relax in the spacious living room and awesome deck! Beautifully decorated in a warm beach theme with colorful artwork, accessories and comfortable furniture throughout. Perfect for a couples getaway or extended family trip - 2 flat screen tvs, wi-fi, dining table and game table, fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, and ideally located in the heart of Avalon on Claressa Avenue - just 3 flat blocks to the beach, restaurants and shops. This is the place to get away from it all!

The first bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the second bedroom has a sturdy bunk bed with a full bed on the bottom and twin bed on top, the third bedroom has a queen bed and there is a queen sofa sleeper in the living room (with a new memory foam mattress). Summer Love Cottage is completely furnished, including all linens and towels.

You'll enjoy the 50-inch flat screen TV HDTV/HDMI DVR w/Netflix capability (another flat screen tv is in the master bedroom, also with DVD/VCR), ceiling fans, cozy fireplace, IPOD music system, DSL high speed wireless internet (also available with a modem for Ethernet connection). We also have some toys and books for the kids. Everything you need for the beach is here, too - chairs, umbrella, sand toys, floats and large towels. **Condition and number of beach items not guaranteed.

An off-season visit to Catalina Island will remind you of the way vacations used to be, long sunny days and cool evenings. Plenty of time to do as little or as much as you please. This is a perfect time to relax over-worked minds and bodies. Relax with a good book by the fireplace, stroll along the boardwalk, take a tour into the interior of the island or simply do nothing at all.

About Kathy Arman and Linda Hayes

Summer Love Cottage is the realization of a family dream to own a vacation home on Catalina Island. We all grew up coming here on family boats and even owned a mooring at one time but now are landlubbers! A mother-daughter team manages the home.

Kathy Arman and Linda Hayes purchased this house in 2009

Why Kathy Arman and Linda Hayes chose Avalon

We loved the cottage look, the spacious front room for family gatherings and those big windows. They had been painted shut for decades and after much work, we were able to get them to slide open again!

What makes this house unique

Eight people fit easily in the living room and there are two tables so one can be used for playing games or doing a puzzle. Large kitchen makes it easy to cook for the family and the deck is a perfect place for an outdoor meal. The dining room table seats 6, the game table 4 and the deck table 8.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hanging out on the upper patio and bbqing.....2 minute walk to the beach. Big enough home to allow for family relaxation. Amazing. A wonderful home away from home. The whole family had a chance to relax and enjoy each other. Such an amazing trip. Thank you!

Perfect Catalina House!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to Avalon for 40 years and this house is ideal! The owners' are so thoughtful, they provide beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. The open living room is perfect for family time and the roof top deck is incredible! Looking forward to another trip to the Summer Love Cottage!

Girls getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home for our girls weekend! The entrance was easy access and walking distance to Cresent Street was only two blocks with a 5 minute walk. The place was clean, well-supplied. Host available & attentive via phone call and text. Thank you! WiFi is fast. The deck was awesome and provided another fun gathering spot. A couple suggestions 1) provide three rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom instead of two 2) the couch cushions are flat and should be replaced. Just some thoughts. We would still rent this home again!

This is a very charming, lovingly restored 20s home with an open living area and fantastic rooftop deck. It has everything you need, is well kept, clean, private, and located near the heart of town. Highly recommend. Responsive owners. Had a great time.

Best House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time! The Summer Love Cottage is the perfect accommodations for a stay in Avalon. There were 3 couples and it this house had everything you could need for a fun weekend. We especially loved the rooftop patio which was so gorgeous at night. The house is beautiful, clean, and well taken care of. The location is ideal for getting to the beach. The owners are very kind and accommodating - we are grateful to have had such a nice place to stay for our weekend getaway. Thank you Linda and Katie - xoxo
