Great little spot in Avalon

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a cozy Saturday evening with our 20lb terrier. The house was easy to find, simple to check into, and a great home base for our Catalina overnighter. I found myself lost in the house's character, so many cool antiques (most of which we're in working condition) and decorations. You know that good times have been had in this spot! The location relative to town is just simply awesome. It's less than a 2 minute walk to the beach and the main street of Avalon. It's definitely an older house, so just know that going in and don't have an unrealistic expectation.

Things to know:

Heat/AC units. It was either WAY to hot or freezing cold (due to user/operator error),

The pilot light on the gas heater went out after about 15 mins of use,

The house is on a "main road" of Catalina so it can be noisy with the golf carts and people walking by.

The island is in severe drought conditions, so bring your own water (or pay $0.50 for cheap water bottles at restaurants)

There's 1 bathroom, which served our needs more than fine

All in all, the house was fantastic and we would certainly stay again. Definitely was enough room for 2 adults and a dog... would have been even nicer with another couple to maximize the house's space.

Booking the home was super easy. Michael Ponce (the property manager) was super responsive, adaptive and flexible to our schedule change. Total pro. Would be glad to work (and rent from) with him again. Thanks Michael!

Charming Catalina Island Cottage with loads of history.

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful beach cottage built in 1908 and then added onto, filled with antiques. Absolutely charming. The only drawback is one bathroom for six people just doesn't cut it. Otherwise we'd easily return.

Perfect Avalon getaway cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our ladies' night in Avalon. It's incredibly close to where the ferry comes in and all of the businesses in Avalon - restaurants, Vons, cafes, bars, and golf cart rental. The hosts are great and right next door and very responsive! The house is clean and adorable. Great little getaway. Would definitely return, and recommend to friends.
