I was really excited about renting this property especially because it came with a golf cart. I was so disappointed. It seems like they are trying to fix it up but it is so dirty. When I went to use the pans to cook they were really dirty. One was so dirty it had mold growing in it and still some liquid that looked like butter. There isn't a dishwasher so I had to clean all the dishes and pans before I could use them and wash them again when I was finish. The coffee table had old food stuck to it and I had to scrub it clean. It isn't stocked with cleaning supplies so I had to use the old dish sponge and soap. Not something I really want to do when I am on vacation. The garbage disposal was broke and the smell coming from it was so gross it smelled the entire house up. I finally just stuck a rag in the drain. The Direct TV doesn't work properly. When you are watching a show an error will come up and stop the program. This will happen every 5-10 minutes you are watching a show. The televisions in the bedrooms are on the same remote code. So what one person is watching in one room the other person has to watch in the other bedroom. The bed spread had makeup on it from whoever was there before me.Checkout is at 10:00 and I received a call saying I needed to checkout, it was 10:01. It's not like they are going to clean it anyway...I would not recommend this property.
Fantastic, fun, and full of vacation pleasure!!

We have never had a bad time in Catalina. We look forward to our time there every year. Hope to continue going.
Great deal! Great location!

We loved our stay at Catalina. We were walking distance to everyday and the golf cart was a plus to take the kids sight seeing of the island. We had access to the washer and dryer which was great so I didn't bring sand home with me in our luggage. My only complaint is the bedding didn't smell clean I had to wash everything first which was time consuming and took some time away from just being able to relax. Other than that it was very clean and we enjoyed our stay there.

Great house, had everything you would need. Golf cart was a big plus! Loved the decor and location, very close to everything.
My only complaint would be that because it was a downstairs,unit and had a upstairs, try and make sure you don't have loud people. Research to see if there are people renting the top out. Half the time we were there it was very nice and quiet, but once people occipied the top part of the cottage it sounded like they were bowling upstairs the whole time. Very noisy.
Other than that it was a very nice house and great loction.
Best girls trip to date!!!
Left on 05/30/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Kim
This was a girls trip and the first time most of us had ever been to Catalina. It was amazing!!! The house was adorable and aside from a slight mildew smell it was perfect. We were within walking distance to all the bars and the main downtown area.
The golf cart was so much fun!! We can't wait to come back and we would definitely stay here again. The rental office was easy to find and the people were very helpful. We drove the golf cart everywhere and when it was time to re fill it with gas it only ended up costing 6 bucks!!!
Home away from home

Great house with everything you need and clean.
Close to the beach, stores and restaurants.
Golf cart was a blessing to have.
Left on 08/17/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Catalina First-timers
We loved our first trip to Catalina. Here are some specifics about this house:
This house was the perfect size for our family of four. The location was great. It was an easy walk to shops, restaurants and the beach. It came with a golf cart, which was a true plus. We were able to really explore and get a feel for the island.
The house needs a lot of TLC! The floors were filthy. This is no understatement. We had to wash our kids' feet before bed every night, not from playing at the beach, but from walking barefoot in the house. We called and asked that housekeeping come and clean the floors. They came by while we were out one afternoon, but alas the floors, still dirty. Oh and by the way, I hope your kids aren't light sleepers. The floor squeaks loudly with every step you take. The couch could use a good cleaning too. Our older son plopped onto the couch and a cloud of dust flew up.
I can't tell if the home owners are in the middle of fixing the place up or just lousy painters. The linen closet with extra bedding had no shelves, so everything was just tossed inside. There are many unfinished projects.
For the price we paid for this place, I would have expected something in better condition.

This is a great cottage very close to the town and all of the happenings! It was perfect for our family of 6! The golf cart is a plus and we had so much fun cruising the island with it. The bathrooms were clean and nice. The only downfall was that the pull out couch was not comfortable at all and the double bed was also not comfortable, the owner of this property needs to take care of this issue or they will have problems. All in all we survived the sleeping issue and had a ball and enjoyed the property very much1 also the kitchen was equipped very well.

It was awesome!

The house was a perfect size for our family. Plus, the use of a golf cart was such an added pleasure. Even though we were close enough to walk to everything in town, it was fun to ride around and view the beautiful scenery.
Catalina cottage was the perfect home base for island adventures
Left on 07/26/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Mary
Our cottage, located within minutes of the beach, provided us with the comforts of home and some: wide-screen tv's, kitchen appliances, a living room surrounded with windows in true Catalina style, washer/dryer and, thanks to the rental management agency, Catalina Vacation Rentals, plenty of towels, and clean as a whistle.

We have rented this property a couple of times, and it is perfect for our 6 person family. It was nice. The cart is a nice option to have. We have been to Catalina many times, and this house being centrally located, works nicely. We will definitely rent again.

We rented this adorable cottage with another couple, it was perfect! Close to everything and it came with a personal golf cart!! The only disappointing part was the back door didn't lock. Other than that everything was clean and very well kept. We will rent this rental again.
The stay was excellent.

The property was an excellent rental. Perfectly located. Beautiful property!
We plan to stay here again.
great place and great rental company
Left on 03/25/2011 for a stay in March 2011 | joe
We were very suprised when we found out that we would have to stay an extra night on the island as a storm had caused the ferries to stop operating. The rental company had to inform us and let us use their computers so we could adjust our monday business schedule. Above and beyond customer service. the place was great, close to everything and the golf cart is key (especially with the kids). Would recommend to anyone.
un - clean house

NIce home but had some annoyances
Left on 04/28/2010 for a stay in April 2010 | Vishal
Rented 336 Sumner (lower) for 2 nights. Loved the Golf cart. Nice little cozy cottage. Wonderful location ~ 1 block from the main street.
Strong odor in the house - present when we came and when we left the unit. We kept windows open while we were inside but didn't help. Definitely needs to be looked at.
Squeaky master bed - Unable to turn on bed without waking up the partner. This was a major concern.
Squeaky floorboards - made lots of sound when walking. Minor inconvenience and probably because the flooring was new.
Bath Towels - Looked very old. Should be replaced.
Wouldn't stay again in the same unit but a different one and must be better than this one.

Great for small family
Left on 04/07/2010 for a stay in April 2010 | Jamie T
We usually rent larger properties in Avalon, but this was a trip for just our family of five (three small kids 6,4,1). The house was very nice, and the remodeling is nice too. This is not a critique, but would like to let people know that there were not games and books in this house like we're used to enjoying in Avalon homes. The golf cart was nice to have, but not needed for most stomping around Avalon. New TV's with HD and Satellite is a nice perk, but there were no DVD players. These may be coming as we don't think the remodeling is complete.
New Year's get-a-way
Left on 01/21/2010 for a stay in December 2009 | PastcommanderJan
We rented the little house at 326 Sumner for New Year's Eve 2009. There were two couples and it worked out perfectly for the 4 of us. We especially enjoyed and appreciated having the golf cart as part of the rental. We used it to drive to the Casino for the New Year's Eve ball. Walking that distance in high heels would have been a pain. (literally) Everything was clean and decorated nicely. The place did smell musty when first entered. It would have been nice to have a rug in the living room to make it seem a little warmer. Everything worked well and we cooked a small dinner using the stove and the oven with no problem. Sharing a house was the perfect choice for the four of us. It was a pleasant experience. We would definitely rent from Catalina Island Rentals in the future.

The people at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals were there if you ask them a question but not very friendly or helpful. It was a challenge to just get them out of their chair. The prices were ok, a little high considering how nice of a condo you can rent around the corner for a little more money. The house has a very unsafe gas leak that I have heard it has had for a long time. It needs cleaning, paint very badly and the pillows are beyond throw away. Don't get me wrong, it was a place to sleep and the golf cart was a wonderful bonus. I am used to much nicer accommodations even in Mexico but Catalina is a wonderful place and I will be back next year. I may rent the same house again but I will bring pillows.
well furnished first class rental
Left on 10/09/2009 for a stay in September 2009 | Richard
well appointed and supplied kitchen and living spaces. tvs in every room, stereo, fresh linen
I would return to Catalina Island vacation Rentals and stay at 336 Sumner though it might be refreshing to change to rental trusting that all the properties are as well managed and provisioned as 336.
Loved the golf cart and used it all over. Especially when compared to the $40.00 per hour standard rental rate. It was an important reason for choosing a duplex over a hotel. We were a group of four. a married couple and a father and his adult daughter.
Not up to our expectations
Left on 10/08/2009 for a stay in October 2009 | KM
We could tell they were trying to update the house, but it still needs work. There was a door out the back room that went into a hall and upstairs. We thought for the price it would be a nicer home.
It was clean, but had a musty smell when we first went in. We had to open the windows to air it out. It was nice having the golf cart and it came in handy.

A+ on everything! We liked the rooms and the kitchen. We liked the fact there was a tv in every room. The kitchen even had all the pots & pans we needed. It even had two couches. The Golf Cart WAS very much used. The location was far enough away but close enough to get to the things in case you didn't have a cart. We will definately stay there again!
336 Sumner House Experience
Left on 07/23/2009 for a stay in June 2009 | brink619
I enjoyed Catalina Island and will definitely go again soon. It was great to have the use of a Golf cart which was on our "must have" list, and we were glad we didn't go without it. The house on the other hand had a terrible odor. The smell was even worse with the combination of air freshners and no air condition. The chairs in the dining room were broken and the bed linens were terribly itchy and unattractive. I think with some improvments this house would be perfect, but definitely not worth spending almost $300 per night on.
Left on 03/18/2009 for a stay in March 2009 | gbeshai
Overall, the place was nice. There were a couple of minor inconveniences, specifically no remotes for the TV's in the bedrooms and no DVD remote. We had a power outage in the kitchen while trying to cook breakfast, but other than that, the place was nice.

Had a great time, would recommend this house.
Came with a golf cart, but it wasn't necessary because house is within walking distance to most things.

We spent two nights and three days, post Christmas, at Catalina Island: four seniors and one adult. 336 Sumner (lower) is conveniently located down Sumner, the middle street to Everything in Catalina: eating places, beach and piers, casino/movie, and ticket sales for bus trips.
We selected this particular bungalow for several reasons: TWO bathrooms, 52" TV in main room (plus other TVs), and accompanying golf cart parked in front. The bungalow was clean and inviting with a "woman's touch."
A suggestion is that ALL lightbulbs be in operation throughout and ALL clocks be working before guests arrive. Nightlights in the bathrooms would be very much appreciated.
This residence will always be our FIRST CHOICE when we visit Catalina!

Very Relaxing "Getaway"
Left on 01/09/2009 for a stay in November 2008 | Danny and Kathy Parrott
My husband was very reluctant to spend our "getaway" in Catalina, thinking it was an "adult vacation". Being that I lived there 20 years ago, I knew it was a very special place - even for families. The Sumner home absolutely made our trip!!! We were blocks from town, accomodated our family very comfortably and the golf cart was an extra special bonus!! My husband wants to stay in the same home again soon!!
