If you want to be in the heart of town and walk anywhere this is it. It is on the first block, steps to the sand and steps to any restaurant or bar. Right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so easy if you want a tour or event. Two nice decks, you can have a drink and enjoy the views or people watch. All newly redone, nice everything. Sound throughout along with flatscreen bluray and mp3 dock. It technically is a one bedroom but it is 1100 sq ft with two euroloungers that fold out and all bedding/towels included. This is a fun place to go and you will love it, we do.

A little GEM!
My two sisters rented Marty's condo for a "girls" weekend and birthday celebration. We couldn't have been more pleased. It is a half block from the beach/harbor and you can literally walk to almost anything. The condo is comfortably furnished and we utilized the queen bed and two futons. It wasn't quite warm enough to take advantage of Marty's closet of toys (paddle boards, kayaks, bicycles, water toys, etc.) but these seriously add to the value of the place. Marty made the booking extremely easy and was available to quickly answer all our questions. We had a snafu with the coffee pot which he quickly arranged to have a replacement delivered. This is a great little condo with great balconies and views and will leave you longing for more days there.
Wonderful place, awesome experience!
From the beginning, Marty was quick to respond and was very thorough with details about the house and communication in general.. And the house...perfect! We are a family of four, with our "kids" being young adults. It never felt cramped and the two floors meant we could spend together or there was room enough to have our own space. This was our first trip to the island and staying here meant we were close to the beach yet far enough away from the noise. Marty was very helpful with information about the island (things to do, where to eat, etc) and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Thank you Marty for helping us make some great memories!
Perfect location for a fun-filled weekend - walkable, charming, and clean!
We stayed at Yellow House to celebrate a birthday and could not have been more pleased. The location is great, the house is spotless, and you couldn’t ask for a better evening sitting outside on either of the two balconies. Marty was super accommodating and we hope to return to Yellow House soon!
The house was spacious and very clean. It was close to the ocean and restaurants. Perfect for us!
We loved the place and Catalina. Everything was clean, close, and a lot of fun. Marty is a great host and very responsive. We would definitely stay here again.
Gem of Catalina
Our stay in Catalina was made even better by this gem of a rental! The property owner, Marty, was extremely helpful and easily reached via email or phone. He did his best to accommodate our requests i.e. early check-in, late check-out, storing our belongings. *Be sure to provide him your ferry times so that he can coordinate with his house-keeper and next guests. The unit is a stones throw from the ferry landing, approx. a 5min walk and is located on the first street as you approach town. It is furbished with up-to-date appliances and furniture and a really nice sound system. It is an ideal stay for couples looking for a nice romantic respite. The "toy room" if filled with anything and everything needed for a nice beach day or romp around the island. Definitely planning our next stay!
Amazing location. Clean and roomy place. Bikes and kayaks are an added bonus!
Really pleased with the place. The walk is so short to the place from the ferry. Balconies are great. Plenty of room.
Included with the rental is two single man Kayaks, 4 bikes and two stand up paddleboards. You have to carry them to the beach which is less than a block. You have to be responsible to know how to use them, I am not offering any instruction. There are life vests but no helmets. Nice new stuff, and also includes beach chairs and an umbrella, two sets of golf clubs.

Additional information about rental rates
I am negotiable on the payment structure but if you don't ask I'll request 1/2 then the other 1/2 whenever VRBO sends out the request which is probably 30 days prior to travel. If its a month or less then just one payment. Please use the eCheck option or let me know so I can ad 3% for the credit card choice.
