Overview

Avalon Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

Catalina is All About Island Lifestyle!

Try out the new Catalina Zipline and EcoTour Excursion, as well as the NEW Undersea Adventure…coming Spring of 2011! Take a bus or van ride up to the Airport in the Sky and have lunch and maybe…..see the California Bison (Buffalo) grazing in the fields below. Hike, walk, bike or obtain transportation to the center of the Island or to the far end development of Two Harbors.

Yes, this is a VACATION and the 'Island' awaits you with numerous activities such as Segway Tours of the City, swimming, boating, golfing, tennis, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, para-sailing, miniature golfing, glass-bottom boat rides, dinner cruises, shopping, fine restaurants, mountain biking and electric bike tours, Haunted Catalina Tours and so much more.

In the 1940s, 1950's and 1960's the Chicago Cubs used to hold 'Spring Training' in Avalon. Learn about Catalina’s history by visiting the Casino museum, and the Country Club Restaurant adjacent to the golf course, which features the original Chicago Cubs Clubhouse and locker rooms, as well as, numerous photographs of prior year Cubs baseball stars. It’s the only place in town to get a “great” cigar.

Find out which Movie Stars, dignitaries, Presidents and “lesser luminaries” walked the streets of Avalon and haunted the Catalina landscape in the early days of film making. The Museum will show you movies of the way Stars were born during the hayday of the movie studios…and where the “bodies” are buried…so to speak.

26 Miles Across the Sea…Santa Catalina Island is just a short 1-hour ferry boat cruise from Long Beach, San Pedro, Newport Beach and Dana Point. You’ll enjoy your stay and the memories you make.

Why Dean and Tina Chrispen chose Los Angeles County

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.

What makes this condo unique

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...

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

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.

Okay

  • 3 of 5

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!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

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.

Excellent rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with this vacation rental. The unit was very clean and well maintained. It had an open spacious feel and the perfect balcony to enjoy an evening glass of wine. We will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend it.

I recently stayed in this condo with 3 girlfriends. It is the perfect size for 4 people! Very nice, clean and comfortable. The view from the balcony is spectacular! I would highly recommend staying here. I just wish we could have stayed longer!

Paradise in the Sky

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great location and beautiful penthouse. The views outside our balconies were amazing and Tina was such a great host. The town is quaint and fun with so many things to do like parasailing, zip lining, and touring the island in a golf cart. It did rain a little on Saturday, but it did not detour our fun. We spent the evening in the condo cooking and relaxing as well as soaking in the warm Jacuzzi.

We will definitely be back! Thank you Tina and Dean for allowing us to absorb the beauty of Catalina in your Paradise Penthouse!
