I loved it!
We had a wonderful stay in the property. It was clean, decorated very nice, and provided a relaxing environment.
Perfect little beach house
This was a perfect little beach house. Great location, just a short walk to the pier and shops/restaurants. The street is blocked off so the kids can run around and play outside. Will definitely be staying here again.
Cozy little sea shanty!
This place was perfect for our needs! It's a quaint, comfortable little spot located within walking distance of the pier! You don't need to walk up any of those monster hills! We were going for a weekend fishing trip, and this place was a perfect little spot to come home to; to shower, eat and sleep. I wanted to address some of the previous reviews talking about the price...you know what you're paying when you book the place, so it doesn't really feel right to complain about that. Is it overpriced for what you get? Yes, but, there are also VERY limited places to stay in Catalina, which makes it an owners market, and this one's location can not be beat! The place was clean and cozy, and the location was perfect. We briefly met the owner because we checked in a little early. He was super friendly, and very nice, making sure everything was ready for our arrival which I really appreciated.
Now, as for the rental company. BE PREPARED. The contract they send over is very strongly worded. They will add little ticky-tack fines for every little thing. Maybe I've just gotten too used to the customer oriented service of Airbnb, but, i was not ready for the TINY check-in window (you have a two hour window otherwise there are, you guessed it, additional fees!), the strongly worded contract, the fact that you need to clean up the place, otherwise you could incur additional fees, on top of the cleaning fee, etc. The people that I actually dealt with at the rental office were very nice, and we didn't have any issues with the place or the rental company. I just was not fully prepared to deal with a dinosaur in the new age of customer service oriented rental businesses.
Overall, great stay at a home in a great location.
P.s. - The WiFi didn't work while we were there which some other reviews have mentioned.
The distance to the beach and downtown was as expected, just a few blocks. But the rest was unexpected. On arrival, the place looked nothing like it's pictures. It was cluttered with stuff everywhere. Barely any space to bring in your luggage. Smelled bad. Ants crawling all over kitchen. Spider webs in bathroom. The shower is SO small, you can't lift up your arms to wash hair. The toilet was broken from day one. The futon bed was broken. States it sleeps 6, but really only sleeps 3-4 comfortably (which sucks b/c we had 5 people). There was no internet access, although they claim there is. Very disappointing. From pictures, appears to be cute and quaint. In reality, tight and dirty. Wanna cook? Forget about it, the kitchen is unpleasant to look out let alone want to cook in. I complained twice to management, got no response.
Hi, Hanna. We're so sorry that you had these issues during your stay. It's very helpful for us to know these things so we can make improvements for future guests.
