Vacation Rental Summary
While the home is located on a hill (walking shoes a must in Catalina) and the front door took some getting use to when locking it, my family and I had a great time. The open common area and the deck were so lovely and the kitchen had all the necessities to cook up a solid meal. The beds in each bedroom were super comfy and there were extra blankets and heaters/fans if you should need them. And 2 bathrooms in a 3-bedroom home are so necessary. please note that the bedroom flat screen TV is pretty small but you shouldn't be indoors while in Catalina anyway :) But the icing on the cake was having Civr offer us a early check in and a late check out. It was very thoughtful and when traveling with your parents the accommodations were very valuable.
We just vacationed on the island and had a wonderful experience. We almost had to cancel our trip due to a sudden death in the family, but Catalina Island Vacation Rentals was sympathetic to the situation and managed to shift our rental date by a few days. The house itself is priced right. It could stand a little updating, but it was clean. I think the house may need a new hot water heater as it took a good five minutes before it would get hot enough to shower. We did notice every evening around the same time a smell of gas/propane. It didn't last long, but was kind of strange. The balcony is a huge plus! It accommodated all of us, plus enough room to dry out our dive gear. I would definitely stay at this rental again.
We just got back from a perfect weekend in Catalina full of golf carts, kayaking, massages, and fun. We had a girls weekend just hanging at the beach and Bbqing at the house. This house fit the 8 of us ladies perfectly with tons of room so we didn't feel like sardines. The beds are comfortable but the couch pull out not so much. It's a quiet little place super close to town and I would probably rent it again if we went back. I liked that it was in the middle between Descanso and town. We brought an aerobed (we had room to inflate a queen size one) so the girls didn't have to sleep on the pull out but there were two blow up ones there. Highly recommend it! It's a little older but clean, comfortable, and roomy!!!
The price was right for three bedrooms. The apartment smelled a little funny (gas leak was discovered later), the bathroom ceiling was moldy, and the toilet backed up twice. Only one of the rooms had a tv. Other than the smell, the place was clean and tidy. We were allowed to check in early and the staff helped us with our issues. Not the greatest first impression, but we would go back and give them another chance.
