Great vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous place to stay for our family reunion including a 5 year old. The house is very roomy and clean, close to the beach. We loved the upstairs balconies for reading and relaxing. The dining room table was nice and big for our meals and playing cards. We enjoyed the living room with plenty of places to sit and visit. A perfect place for a family getaway!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us, the pictures don't do it justice, the location is awesome, close to everything, the balcony in the master suite was great for sitting and relaxing, enjoyed the view of the ocean, the convenience of being across the street from a nice restaurant, we had a wonderful stay,, will definitely recommend this house to friends, and will be renting it again,

Owner's Response: Thank you for your praise of our Catalina house. We love it too. Just so there is not a misunderstanding for the reader, the restaurant is down the street from us, close to the beach front, not right across from us. I look forward to your return visit with us.

Great family rental

  • 5 of 5

Less than a block from the beach ! This house is set up for a great family rental. Rental unit was clean and well kept. Little extras such as beach chairs, buckets and shovels, etc made the stay so homey !! Downstairs bedroom great for the older folks in our group. Flexible seating and sleeping arrangements in the living room as well.

While the kitchen is small and older, it served our purpose as our family prefers simple breakfasts and lunches in and eating dinner out.

House is situated close to everything !

After our first day there, we wanted to book for next year !!
