Vacation Rental Summary
This place is a little run down. The sink in the upstairs bathroom did not work. The place really just needed a little TLC. My biggest complaint would be that the place is advertised as a 4 bedroom. The "4th" bedroom is hardly a room and shouldn't be called one. It is a converted office or maybe a pantry that they are claiming to be a bedroom. It barely fits a bunkbed. We had 4 couples planning to stay in each of the bedrooms. one of the couples chose to stay elsewhere because the room was so small. It totally changed our experience and made trip more expensive.
Our staff was so excited about the idea of a trip to Catalina, husbands and babies included as a game. We got our statistic and we indeed took our staff to Catalina. Our 3 day trip was perfect in every way! There were 10 of us and 2 infants we all fit perfectly and had plenty of room especially since we had a lovely patio on which to hang out, barbaque and watch the sun go down. The house is quiet, being on the hill, and perfect for a good nights sleep :) We will be coming back and requesting this exact house!
We always spend Labor Day week in Catalina and have stayed at many place and this place was by far our favorite. Positives-Great Kitchen opens to Back Patio with BBQ,Table with umbrella and lots of Chairs. Washer and Dryer also off the back porch. Living area had great sitting and had a new Flat screen TV abd DVD player. The neighborhhod is very quiet, no golf carts ripping up and down the streets in the early am or late pm like on the flats. Unit is up a hill which allows for great breeze and lots of windows can be opened. 3 of the bedrooms were nice with comfortable beds. The 4th room with 2 bunks is really not a bedroom, is probably a small office. I understand they are trying to maximize beds in the unit but our teeneagers slept on the floor as the felt to cramped in the room.The driveway to park the Golf Cart is a challenge but not terrible and it has a golf cart which is a big plus for us. We hope to return to this very house next year and highly recommend it. Civr office was courteous and nice when dealing with them. Had 1 issue on check in. Broken blender, they brought us a new one in 30 minutes !!!
I loved the house with all the space for sleeping. The kitchen was a nice size. I would recommend a shower go into the downstairs bathroom, as with a total of 10 people, the only shower with teenagers and adults was hard. I would also recommend a better place to park the golf cart as it was very hard to get in and out of that small driveway. Otherwise, the view was amazing and very quiet. I usually stay in town and the noise is bad at times, so I enjoyed being higher with less traffic.
