Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

It is a quick 10-minute walk (no hills) from the Avalon Harbor to this cute and very spacious home in Avalon. The place was super clean, the bedrooms big, and backyard perfect for our family of four. The kitchen provides all the basics in new appliances such as microwave, coffee machine, oven, gas stove and large refrigerator. We were happy to see a brand new BBQ in the backyard filled with propane and ready for us to use. We highly recommend this place for its convenience to the Avalon waterfront, museum, shops, restaurants, and super great price!

Cute property decorated in the theme of the island. Perfect space for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place to relax and unwind. This vacation home was very conveniently located to everything. 5 minute walk to the boat and less time to shopping and restaurants. This home is perfectly sized, it’s very clean and inviting. Home away from home. We had a wonderful time exploring the island and it’s history. The locals are all very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here at Mark’s home, we had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Mark for sharing your home with us.

Perfect property for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Property is perfect for a weekend getaway! We had 5 girls staying here for the weekend, and we never once felt cramped. Two bathrooms, one downstairs with full shower, makes it easy to get ready with multiple people. Super close to all of the shops and restaurants, less than a 5 minute walk.

Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

The house had pretty much everything you need and having a yard and grill was a big plus! We were able to have BBQ dinners at home and then go out on the town. It had a brand new stove and refrigerator. I slept downstairs on the couch/futon that was pretty comfortable. We had enough room for everyone. The feel of the home was a bit outdated but when you are in Catalina your not home very much anyway!

Perfect get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 3 weeks. It was perfect for me and my family. Plenty of sleeping room, a great backyard area with a beautiful view of the mountain side and a nice breeze. We BBQed regularly and it was close to town. There was a washer and dryer, and everything we needed to feel right at home. The property manager was very friendly and helpful and was sure to make sure we had everything we needed. Looking forward to booking again next summer.

A perfect location and stay for our family, met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Very reasonably priced for the weeks stay, and so close to everything. Really enjoyed the backyard and BBQ. Could have used two working beach chairs. There was only one and it was rotted and torn. Plenty of extra beach towels, blankets, pillows, etc. They even had a new pack & play crib for the baby & an extra air bed if needed in the closet. The Vons on the island is a 5 minute walk, extra grocery bags left in the kitchen for shopping use. Kitchen is well stocked with spices, cooking oil, coffee filters, etc. I wish there was a non stick pan for cooking eggs in the morning; kinda messy clean up.

The jeep tour of the interior is a must. Saw two heard of Bison, fox, eagles, ranches, etc.

Glass bottom boat tour is fun for those that do not snorkel. We did both at lovers cove.

Catch an evening movie at the casino it's worth looking at this beautifully preserved 1929 theater. On Friday & Saturday nights, 30 minutes before the show starts there is a live organist performing. The evening stroll is so lovely. We had a flying fish boat tour booked, but it got cancelled, darn! I guess that means we will have to come back again.

I hope to book this property for our family next year. Thank You Mark for a great family memory.
