About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Avalon*Oceanview* Split-level* Penthouse* *Pool and Jacuzzi*. Just above the Rooftops of Santa Catalina's Quaint Little City of Avalon is 'nestled' this Tri-Level Penthouse Suite just steps (about a half-city block) from the Boardwalk and Sandy beaches. Upon your return from a fun-filled day a Refreshing Swim awaits you, as we are pleased to offer one of the few Pools and Spas on Catalina... Back up at the Suite .. Breathtakinig Harbor, City, and Hillside Views from All rooms and Balconies keep reminding one of Santa Catalina's beauty and the state-of-mind revealed in the 'Island' lifestyle.

Yes, this is a vacation, and the 'Island' awaits one with activities such as horseback riding, golfing, tennis, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, para-sailing, miniature golfing, glass-bottom boat rides, dinner cruises, shopping, fine restaurants, and so much more.

The Chicago Cubs used to have 'Spring Training' in Avalon back in the 50's and 60's; and one can learn and read much of this treasured history by visiting the Casino museum, and the Country Club Restaurant adjacent to the golf course, which features numerous photographs of prior year 'boys of summer'.

Read also of the storied Movie Stars who graced the Catalina landscape in the early days of film making, while filming numerous movies. And other dignitaries...

And finally, make some beautiful history of your own in the little island paradise here on Santa Catalina Island just a short 1-hour boat cruise from the coast of California's Long Beach, San Pedro, and Dana Point. It's your call. Thank you.

NOTE: There is a two-night minimum stay for weekends due to a high volume of inquiries. We appreciate your understanding!

About Kim Chamberlain

We are a family always looking for that 'perfect' vacation experience', and we believe --although perfect can be evasive--the Catalina experience comes close. From your harbor arrival in this quaint little village of Avalon, the endless charm and activity, becomes enchanting! Come experience the Catalina for yourselves: You will be happy you did!

Kim Chamberlain purchased this condo in 2004

Why Kim Chamberlain chose Avalon

Growing up in Southern California and Sailing to Catalina as a child on numerous occasions attracted us to Catalina in the early days, and our memories have brought us back. Many times our fathers would sail over, and we kids would come across the channel on the old 'Steamship'. I will never forget the local kids (some younger) swimming out to meet the Steamer and then diving deep for coins/money tossed from the upper decks from the visiting passengers. Those days are past, but a new adventure is always just a step or thought away in this island paradise.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to gorgeous harbor views, we are also uniquely situated above and away from the 'sounds' of busy little golf-cart traffic that sometimes can disturb a peaceful evening.

Very nice and clean condo

  • 5 of 5

The whole condo was very nice and clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, knives, anything you need to cook a meal with. We had one plumbing issue but they were quick to fix it that day with no hassle. All the staff we interacted with were super friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay again.

A Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Once you get off the boat, the condo is a short walk (about 10 minutes). It was raining during our stay so we didn't venture off on the golf cart but walked to the village ... spending our day shopping and eating! At night we sat on one of the balconies and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Kim's communication is excellent and the condo is darling ... if I could live there I would!

Thank you for the stay!

The condo was comfortable and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

When we travel with our friends from Alaska, the view is everything! This condo has the most beautiful view of Avalon harbor and the casino. We loved the location, as well as the luxury touches the condo offered. This place was just what we were looking for, and would be happy to recommend it to our friends.

Even Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic location with a gorgeous, well-appointed condo, pool, hot tub, and a golf cart! Kim's directions and communications were clear and helpful. Getting to the condo was a quick walk from the Catalina Express and our group of middle school teachers felt relaxed the second we walked through the door. The condo is warm, comfortable, and spacious. The beds were super cozy and the balconies were the perfect outdoor space. Having access to a golf made for easy exploring of the island, getting us to hiking trails, the botanical garden, pebbly beach, and more. We had 5 in our group and there was plenty of space. We all agreed we'd love to stay in Kim's condo anytime we were planning a trip to Catalina. Much better than any hotel...highly recommended!

All the comforts of home with a great view.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Avalon after a 14 year hiatus. We loved it then and we loved it even more after this visit. The weather was gorgeous and the accommodations could not be nicer. It has a great view of the valley and the Casino. The penthouse unit is spacious for all 5 of us including an active toddler. We appreciated the clean and well equipped kitchen. We had a nice breakfast to start each morning. The beds were comfortable and cozy under the lite down comforter. Everything was in good working order except for one of the bathroom sinks (which has a minor problem with drainage) in the large room with two beds.

The location is a short walk to shopping and activities. Although, it was convenient using the golf cart one evening going to dinner after a busy day of walking and carrying a tired tot. We need to bring a stroller next time. It was our first time using a golf cart. What fun!

There are the stairs walking into the complex and within the condo. It can be a little challenging with luggage and wheeling in our car seat. The outdoor and hot tub looked clean and inviting but it was not heated. A most unfortunate incident occurred during my son's morning run. He wanted to take a picture of the golf cart but he discovered it missing from it's designated parking spot. We reported this to Chela, their manager, who said she would call the police and Kim. We hope their golf cart had been recovered.

If given another opportunity to come to Avalon, we would love to stay here again. We highly recommend this place to our family and friends. Kim kept in touch to assist with any needs we may have. Thank you so much, Kim and Craig, for a lovely stay in your condo.
