About Marian

Catalina has been a part of my life, and held a special place in my heart since I came on vacations with my parents, as a child; I met my husband here after I graduated from college. We brought our children to my parents family cottage every summer, and as they grew to adulthood we were blessed to be able to acquire our own house. Here, we all now vacation with the fourth generation in our family, our grandchildren.

Marian purchased this house in 2004

Why Marian chose Avalon

We chose to buy this home because it was the perfect place to remember the cherished times my parents made possible and to pass on the legacy to those we love and those who would follow.

What makes this house unique

We love this home because it is full of light and had wonderful views, as well as plenty of space to relax, prepare and share meals,and enjoy family and friends.

Great location and so much potential

  • 3 of 5

I wish I could give 3.5 stars. This house is the great for the price. The location is good, just a steep one block up from the round-about. Granted we were at the end of the season, but the house could use some major TLC. The shape of the furniture, paint, & kitchen cabinets was a little disappointing. The biggest issue for us was the noise from the street. It was hot so windows (those that could be opened) were open. Loud golf carts and trucks at all hours.

That being said, the owner was a joy to work with. Very responsive and easy to reach. Even though we gave 3 stars, we would stay again just because it is reasonably priced, the location delivers, and the view from the very top floor is to die for.

Owner's Response: Now that the summer season has closed, we have begun some refurbishing of the house, beginning with new flooring and carpet, which was just completed. New windows are also in the plans, to help reduce street noise, and while present at the house, we will assess any other needs that have developed. I appreciate being made aware of all conditions that guests find need attention, and we will do our best to to address them.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

After all the positive reviews, we were excited to rent this home for a long weekend in Avalon. We were quite disappointed . It is very outdated, but I can deal with that. It was dirty, and many things in the home were broken. Window shades, closet door, curtain rod... all broken. One of the two TV's did not work. Dirty carpet. I did communicate these things with the owner, as she assured me that she will be giving these things attention. She is a very nice lady, and I enjoyed communicating with her prior to our stay. I would not stay here again. It is however in a good location, the beds were comfortable enough, and there is a view.

Owner's Response: In my previous email apologizing to our guest, I explained that this July was our busiest month of the year, and with groups staying literally back-to-back, it made assessing maintenance needs especially challenging. Cleanliness has always been a first priority, so we are addressing this complaint with serious attention. I mentioned, that the carpet has been cleaned regularly, but was a poor choice when installed several years ago, and never looks clean, so we have been planning to replace it, as well as the outdated windows in our house, when the season permits, and of course, blinds and curtain rods, at that time. We have a new t.v. now, the closet door has been put back on its runner, and the carpet cleaned, as of this date.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable and perfect if you plan to hang out at Descanso and the dive park. Super close to town too! Even though it's a busy street, the house is quiet. Great ocean breeze flows through to keep you cool. Comfortable beds and nice bathrooms!! We will be staying here again for sure!

Perfect location for everything!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at this beautiful house for the weekend. The weather was perfect. The house has some beautiful views and wonderful breezes. Short walk to the boats, the beach, restaurants and shops plus the spa is at the end of the street! Both the owner and property manager are sweet and helpful. Cannot wait to come back soon!

Nice house and great view!

  • 5 of 5

It's a great house! Very nice neighbors and close to the shore. We were all out of shape so 4 houses uphill was a challenging walk if you have a lot of luggage. We like cooking so they had all the supplies we needed to cook up a family meal!
