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.

Majestic Views, large house right in town
Wonderful house with great views around. Three levels, with the bedrooms on the first and second floor. The house sits a five minute walk up a hill from the beach ( which can be a little tough Pushing a double stroller :) ).
The grocery store is a 5 minute walk. People mentioned traffic noises in their reviews before but this didn’t bother us. By 8am when the golf carts started buzzing outside, we’re already up.
Hopefully the street noises will soon be reduced, also, as we are in the process of replacing our windows.
Great place, spacious and nice views from the third floor. Can't beat the location, it's a short walk from the Main Street. Marian was wonderful and accommodated all of our needs! Would stay again!
Lovely property and fit our family perfectly.
We were able to bring our extended family out to the island and all stay together! The kitchen was well prepared for cooking, and the table was big enough to play card on at night with 6. The beds were comfortable, and clean. Over all we are very pleased with the property and would recommend it to friends.
I would give this 5 stars, however there was a lot of cart noise from the street. The windows all slightly don’t close, and it made blocking the sound challenging. Lastly for the downside was the stairs. We are an active family so stairs are ok, but there is a finishing lip on every stair that narrows the step length, and make it impossible to get a normal sized foot comfortably on them.
Over all it was a great house, and quarks and all we would stay there again. Bonus, the owner was extremely nice and helpful.
I appreciated this kind and thoughtful review. As mentioned previously, we are aware that the windows are a problem, and are now in the process of arranging to have them all replaced. If possible, this will be completed before the summer season.
Catalina ladies weekend
Spent Sept 14-18 in the amazing setting of Catalina! I am glad to read the house is getting some renovations as that was the only negative thing I would remark about. The house is in a great location, is a great value, the morning sunrises are incredible and we were quite comfortable. I would definitely like to return one day!
Great location and so much potential
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.
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.
Great place to stay & enjoy the island.
Plenty of room. Great view of the harbor. Comfy beds & good showers. Location if a little noisy in the mornings from traffic. Over all great stay, we will be back again.
Zip Line, glass bottom boat tour viewing beautiful undersea gardens and many varieties of protected fish, flying fish tour, inland tour of the island and visit to the Wrigley horse ranch, to name a few.
