Overview

About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

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.

NEW POLICY, NO REFUND DUE TO CANCELLATION. Sorry, it was getting to be a pain in the neck. VRBO does offer travel insurance.

Notes:
This property is located on the first block in Avalon, you can walk anywhere. The 4th of July parade goes right in front of the place. There are two nice decks with views of the harbor and the ocean and look directly across to the Wrigley Mansion. City lights at night and a short walk to your favorite Bars and Restaurants. This place was recently totally remodeled and has not been rented until now. We are right next door to the Catalina Island Conservancy so very convenient for tours.

Great location and attention to details!

  • 5 of 5

The place had everything we needed (and more). The view from the top balcony was fantastic. We were able to walk wherever we needed to go, and Marty was very accommodating.

Great Catalina Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo is the perfect vacation for 3-4 people. My son and I had the opportunity to enjoy the island. It all started at Marty's place. Centrally located, functionable, quaint, and a lot of outside toys to use. Marty even texted to see if everything was alright. Impressive! We love this vacation and place.

Wonderful stay in a BEAUTIFUL place! Can I move in now :)?

  • 5 of 5

We had such an awesome time a Marty's house! The house is cozy and adorable...filled with sun and light! All the comforts of home. Just steps from the water and the fun of Avalon. Beautiful views from the decks. Marty is super responsive if you need anything. Such a nice retreat from the LA hustle and bustle. Thank you Marty...can't wait to come back :)!

Super cozy relaxing place less than 1 block from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property is fantastic to deal with. Marty was very accommodating with both an early check in and a late check out for us due to the ferry schedule we arrived and departed on. He responded within minutes via text messaging about every question we had. We have used VRBO many times in the past and have always found the private owners to be the best people to rent from and Marty was no exception. Now, about the house. This is a can't miss property that we could see as soon as we turned onto the street. It is bright yellow and adds to its character. Inside it was nicely decorated and finished with modern appliances and a comfortable bed (s), futons were even easy to sleep on. The owner has taken good care of this property and it shows it. The major plus for my family was having 2 full bathrooms. For a 1 bedroom to have 2 full baths was unusual but necessary with 3 girls in our house. The beach toys, the bikes and the grocery cart were all a bonus. All in all we were very happy and satisfied with everything this property and it's owner Marty had to offer. There are a ton of dining options and even Putt Putt golf within just 2 blocks of the yellow house. We.would definitely book this place again on our next trip to Catalina.

Perfect place for a get away

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Yellow House 2 times and plan on staying there again. Catalina is a great place for a vacation and the Yellow House is a perfect beach house. Close to town, stores and the boat harbor. Bikes, kayaks, paddle boards, beach chairs and lots of misc toys included in this rental. Love it.

Map

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.
