What Past Guests Are Saying
San Diego, California
Three families stayed at 316 1/2 upper level Catalina avenue with four teenagers. The home is old but very nicely appointed with everything one could need. There is a washer dryer and a clothes line and 3 blow dryers, a beach cooler, and two red wagons for carting groceries or beach gear, and two small, beach chairs to use. There is a small BBQ on the main floor that both units can use in the street for fire safety. All the appliances are new. The kitchen is equipped with nice dishes, glasses, bowls, and cooking pots and pans. They could use a few more cutting knives when cooking or sharpen the ones there. There is lots of extra bedding although we could have used more pillows in each room. The flat screen TV has lots of great channels. The home is located in the middle of town near everything. It is very bright and sunny. All the windows open up - no screens if you have small children. Cool evenings mean no air conditioning is needed. They did have two nice fans that we used during the day to keep cool. The table fits 10 and we ate big brunches there everyday after our morning walk and before heading to the beach. We would love to rent here again. Compared to other prices for weekly rentals on Catalina this one was the best for the money. The internet did not work and the rental agency repair man is so nice and fixed it quickly. The washing machine door did not shut properly and the repair came back and fixed that quickly. He deserved an extra tip for his prompt response and nice attitude. And he fixed both items the first time he came.
A great stay!
We really enjoyed the wonderful charm of this home. There was plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed a nice Spaghetti dinner at the large dining table along with playing plenty of games. Everything was within walking distance and the location was perfect.
We loved how we could open the windows and sleep with the ocean breeze coming through.
We would absolutely stay here again and again with our family.

My family and my sister's family rented this house for our vacation just this last week. This house was way beyond out expetations. The beds are amazingly comfy and wish I could have taken it home with me! There's a nice little collection of groceries that it seems the previous tenants keeps leaving for the next. That was wonderful when we went looking for some cinnimon before the local grocery stores opened. Its nice having a washer and dryer on property, expecially after showers! The hot water gets hot so no worries there and we even found 2 little desk fans since there is no aC. With the windows open and the little fans on it was right as rain. Would definatly come back if I am ever in avalon again and need a place to stay.

FUN, BEAUTIFUL NON -STOP EXCITEMENT!!
We took a family trip for my Mom,s 60th birthday. Eight of us went, we stayed in the 4 bedroom house and it worked out better than expected. We can't wait to do it again. We will probably start planning for 2010 Summer Vacation. We enjoy fishing, eating, drinking and just hanging out. EVERYONE had an awesome time!!!!
Nice house, but bring your rubber gloves
The home had everything we needed to enjoy our stay, but it was in need of a thorough cleaning. The ledges in the shower and the shower curtain had lots of mold spots which could have been taken care of with a little bleach and a tumble through the washing machine. The walls in every bedroom had foot and handprints, nothing that a little 409 couldn't take care of. We felt a bit like we were camping. The cleaning crews should be better supervised by the rental company. The beds were comfortable and the proximity to downtown was perfect. The home is in nice shape for its age, and the price was right. We would consider staying here again, expecially if we knew the cleaning crew had stepped up its game.

Great for extended family
The house was very convenient to have multiple people staying and close to all of the activities in Avalon. There were two problems. We had two toddler children with us and the carpets apparently had not been cleaned as far as we could tell in several years. The other problem is that if you have the front windows open (which you do want to do) the Avalon golf carts that people use to get around the island tend to be quite noisy because the house is on a fairly main thoroughfare. We did really enjoy our stay there though and a plumbing problem was taken care of immediately. We are considering renting the place again next summer.
