|Minimum Stay||2 - 3 nights|
This Home is privately owned and family operated. This home does not come with a golf cart, it is against city policy as to not compete with local rental companies. There are 2 and 3 night minimums for winter and summer, we do not rent for single nights. Also there is a 6 person limit per our rental license rules that we had to sign with the island, if you bring more than 6 people you will jeopardize our license and you will forfeit your security deposit, Please note that the association only heats the spa on the weekends during the winter months. We also just removed all the upstairs carpet so now the entire unit is hardwood floors! We also just added a portable wagon at the front door for your use to and from the market or the beach. While rarely needed this condo does not have air conditioning as is the norm on Catalina.
Located above of Santa Catalina's Quaint European Style City of Avalon this Split-Level Penthouse Suite is about a block or two from the Crescent Street Beach Walk and White Sandy Beaches; fine dining, fast food, street musicians, entertainment, SHOPPING and just plain fun! The Bahia Vista Condo development offers one of the few Pools and Spas on Catalina Island.
Panorama Views of the Ocean, Avalon Harbor, the City, and Hillside Canyons from All of the rooms and both Balconies.

We have been vacationing in Avalon for a number of years and found just the right luxury condominium to eventually become our retirement home. We love Avalon and know you will come to love it too.
This is an Upscale Condominium located in a beach community, just a short two block walk from the ocean and night life. There is a Pool and Spa on the premises and elevators to assist you for ingress and egress. Catalina Island is the ultimate West Coast Island vacation destination. Remember, it's just 26 miles across the sea...
The condo was a perfect fit for our group of four adults due to the two bedrooms and two full baths. Communication with the owners was great and they went above and beyond by providing us with information about the community and area. We're very physically fit so we had no difficulty climbing the stairs to reach the elevator, but the climb could be challenging for some.
Super clean, well maintained and anything you could ask for! Would use again.
Easy to work with the owners. Very responsive on email. The HOA of the building, however, needs to redo the carpets in the hallways to the condo. VERY dirty and gives a bad first impression. The views are stunning!!!
Wonderful home away from home. Stunning aerial views of the island. You can see the casino and the ocean all from the balcony of this perfect gem. Absolutely loved our stay! Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Perfect place to enjoy Catalina island. The condo is close enough to everything to walk but far enough away from the noise . Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our only issue was an uncomfortable hide-a-bed. Would probably work for kids but not adults. The wagon was a wonderful extra for toting groceries , kids and stuff to the beach. Pool and spa were enjoyed multiple times by all 6 of us. Tina and Dean are very quick to respond to concerns and questions. Would stay there again . If stairs are a problem for you, this is probably not a good choice - you have to climb the front entry steps and one other set of at least 8 to get to the elevator.
Thank you for the stay in your home. For the most part it was fine. A little dated in some respects. Master shower seems to have a crack in the floor. I was surprised that we did not have access to a washer/dryer within the condo. I didn't use the ones downstairs. The view was the most spectacular, the weather was outstanding! We love coming to the island every year. I was born there so for me it is always a home coming. The stairs are starting to be too much for us so we might look at the flats next year. Thanks again!
The property was in overall excellent condition and in an excellent location. The rooms were clean and spacious. We really enjoyed the view of Avalon and the harbor. The only minor drawback was that the beach chairs located on the balcony area were in poor condition and not really usable to take to the beach. Otherwise a very nice experience and we would certainly look to come back.
