The GRISHAM HOUSE: AVALON'S ONLY WATERFRONT BEACH HOUSE!
You can throw a stone into the water from our fantastic 60 foot wrap around balcony deck with spectacular and sweeping 270 degree views overlooking the beach, the town, the harbor and the ocean! There is no finer spot to sit and people watch or relax with a glass of wine. 2 night minimum. (3 nt minimum in summer)
You want waterfront with fantastic views; the best location; a great deck and the best value? This is it - look no further! Compare us to ANY other rental (house, condo or hotel) that claims to be waterfront or have an ocean view.
This family owned vacation home offers you the BEST location in town; only steps away from the sand and swimming, shopping, restaurants and bars and all the recreational activities and sightseeing tours. We are also a very short, 2 minute level stroll from where the ferry docks.
Our property is 3 stories (sorry, no elevator) and is a classic, comfortable beach house. On the ground floor are a couple retail clothing shops, a jet ski rental, an ocean rafting company and a psychic. The middle floor (14 steps up) is our larger vacation rental (vrbo #65480) and this unit is on the top (3rd) floor 14 additional steps up from the middle unit.
During the day we are right in the middle of all Avalon has to offer; hustling and bustling with activity. And virtually everyone who takes the ferry walks right past our property, so if you are a people watcher or enjoy seeing all the activity in the harbor; you'll be in heaven. At night however, after the 'day trippers' go home and the businesses close, everything calms down around us.
This unit is like a small 1 bedroom apartment and offers a large separate bedroom with queen bed, a newly remodeled bathroom with stall shower, a brand new fully stocked kitchen and a small living room. This unit is ideal for a romantic couple getaway or a couple with 1 child. In the living room is a TV with cable; DVD player and iPod player. 2 sets of sliding glass doors open onto the LARGE WRAPAROUND DECK WITH SPECTACULAR 270 DEGREE VIEWS. For eating there are 3 bar stools at the breakfast counter plus a table on the front deck. There is a gas BBQ on the side deck. BBQ and dine on the deck while you enjoy spectacular views. We also have free wireless internet access for your laptop computer.
WHY STAY ANYWHERE ELSE? This property offers you the BEST location; the BEST beachfront view decks in town; and the very BEST vacation rental value for your money. We get many repeat guests year after year; you'll see why!
RATES ARE BASED ON 2 PEOPLE. ADD $25/nt FOR A 3RD PERSON.
Also, the MIDDLE floor offers four bedrooms and three baths and sleeps 8. (See vrbo #65480). Book both units for a perfect extended family vacation or 4-5 couple getaway.
We also have a GORGEOUS unit 2.5 blocks inland. It's not waterfront with the views, but it's newer, lovely and less expensive. See vrbo #289226. It can be booked as either a 1 or 2 bedroom.
NO PETS and NO SMOKING. 3 Night MINIMUM in Summer (and 2 nt minimum all other times). Sorry, we do NOT have a golf cart. Minimum age limits apply and young adults renting on their own must be 24 years of age.
**BOOKING IN ADVANCE** We have many regulars that come back year after year and we always give them first opportunity to re-book for the following year. Therefore, we do NOT book more than about 11 months in advance.**

Gorgeous View and Cozy Digs!
If you want to be in the heart of Avalon with a never ending view of the harbor, the Casino, the parasails, the jet skiers and the amazing city lights look no further. Perfect for a weekend getaway with a huge deck and as you can see from the photo an even larger view. It was perfect for the two of us and we loved it -- one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in hands down. Would love to stay there again.
Hi Rob and thank you for your gracious review! Just like our guests, we also never tire of the views and of just being there. We hope to have you stay with us again soon. Best regards, Randy
Perfect location and great view!
Best location on the island.
I cannot tell you how great the views are from this awesome place. Everything was there that you would need. Easy access to everything, clean, and just a great great place to stay. Randy was very responsive and really a good person to work with. I will definitely recommend this place any time, even for myself again.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed here for our anniversary and it was great! The perfect size for a couple. Sitting out on the balcony, looking, and just relaxing with a cocktail set the tone for the whole trip. We will definitely be staying here again.
The location was fabulous, the loft was clean and our family would stay again!
Our whole family loved the loft. It was comfortable, the kitchen provided everything needed to make dinner and eat in. The location was close to everything. We would return!
Perfect for my needs.
The top floor of The Grisham house was the perfect spot to celebrate my dtr's 32nd birthday. We have been going to Catalina her whole life, it's one of our favorite spots. She is married now, so this time we got to share with her new husband. This property was like being in a tree house with the most spectacular view. The owner, Randy was easy to work with, always responding very timely and so accommodating. 5 star's for me.
