What Past Guests Are Saying
Very good place for family group
We liked the place, which is spacious enough for 6 adults. It was clean when we got there. The only thing that I would suggest adding to the unit is an electric fan in the living room, and perhaps a complimentary golf cart which is the popular form of transport in the island added to the rental package. Definitely, this is a place we would stay in again when we go back to Catalina Island.
Palos Verdes, CA
Still loving Catalina after all these years
We enjoyed our stay @ 331 Descanso. We hadn't been to the island in over 20 years, but it was just as we remembered it. As far as the house, all the amenities we needed were there, it was clean and the location was great. Even though we had to walk through one bedroom to get to the next, it was ok because it added to the charm of the property. (Although if you're sharing the house with people other than family, this might not be the property for you.) Overall, we had a great week here!
Good house for a family. Nothing fancy
Nice, quiet location. The house had plenty of room for everyone to sleep. The kitchen was well equipped. There was a dining table for 4 people, so our family of 5 could not all sit down together. This was not convenient for a family dinner, but it was fine for coffee and cereal in the morning and sandwiches for lunch. This house does not have a washer and dryer and it was difficult to find places to hang wet bathing suits and towels.
Checking in was easy. The ladies in the office were friendly and knowledgeable. We would definitely stay here again.
Santa Maria, CA
We had a wonderful time being all together.
We made the best of it even though it was very inconveniet not having a hallway. Having to disturb individuals by walking through the rooms to get to the front of the house was not enjoyable. It should have been disclosed prior to renting the property.
Response from Catalina Island Vacation Rentals - 08/26/2011
Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. Our website does refelect that the cottage does have "tandem" bedrooms. Please call/email us in the future and we can ensure that we find the right property for you.
It was anouther great year on the island been going for 30+ years. This is a great house had plenty of room. It did need a few things, towels for the kitchen, possibly a hose out front to rinse after returning from the beach but other than that great house. Thank you for anouther year!
Response from Catalina Island Vacation Rentals - 02/27/2012
Thanks for your response. All of our kitchens should be set up with two hand towels and two dish towels. Also we provide starter supply of paper towels and toilet paper. Regarding the hose in the front of the house our town sometimes is put on water restrictions so we do have to limit outside H20 access.

A good time on the island
Once again CIVR helped make the JazzTrax weekend a success. When I missed the boat, the agency had everything ready to pick up for our group. Checkout was hassle free. The house was unique and the compact bedrooms had plenty of storage space. Thank you for the great service. KBA
Very nice. Close to town and golf course.
Has all the basics and more.
We had a wonderful time and have reflected many times about the great place we stayed. My youngest son just got married and went back to show his new wife where we stayed in hopes of future times. They were at Catalina for a day trip. Thanks again!

I wanted to take my wife somewhere special, for her birthday. So I looked for hotels in catalina and I couldn't find one at our price that I could afford to take some our friend with us. I was looking on-line and ran accross this home rental at a price I could take some of our friends and not empty my pockets. Of coures this place is Catalina Vaction rentals, We had a great time with our friends. We went on a site seeing trip by ourself renting an golf kart and stopped at one or maybe it was two local taverns. Everyone said they had a great time and next time they where going to pick-up the bill. I really do reconmend this house, all 8 of us slept comfortable and we ate well too. we Bar-B-Q steaks and hotlinks and made our own mix drinks while we played mexican train[domino game] aimost aii night. Oh yea the neighbers where out of this world!!! Nice people!!!! And yes my wife had a great time on her B-Day and wants to return sometime this year. AND WE WILL, so untel then will be writting ya-ll after our next vacation. YOURS TRULY RAY NUNEZ
Great Place for a Big Family Weekend
Close to the action, but not too close. We had exactly 8 people staying in the house. It was a bit cozy and the bedrooms are located 3 in a row so you walk thru one bedroom to get to the other. However, with grandparents, parents and kids staying there, it was just fine. The house was clean and the kitchen was fully stocked w/the essentials. Would rent this house again.
Nicely decorated, but the fact that you had to walk through one bedroom to get to another bedroom made it very disruptive. Only recommend if you are not sharing the house with another family.
We had an absolutely delightful time in Catalina. My friends and I
were celebrating my recent retirement. It was a cozy house and just
right for the 4 of us.
I would definitely rent this house again.
