Vacation Rental Summary
We really enjoyed our stay and it was great for a family. It does not have two separate private rooms as advertised and might not work well for two couples but worked great for us. Needed a little updating. Upstairs sofa bed is worn out (mattress, etc) and a few other things were falling apart or low quality. Otherwise the size and location were great and we would stay there again. Fantastic view!
We stayed in the place for 2 nights - 6 people, 2 families. The house have a great location - literally - 3 steps to the beach/ restaurants/ shops. Very nice a cozy place. The patio on the roof is amazing - we spent evenings there - chatting, watching boats in the bay and deer on the streets (yes, deer come at night and casually walking on the streets - we had to wake up kids so they can see it). One of the bedrooms is not actually a bedroom, but a part of the family room and it can be an issue for 2 families. Also the trash removing is a little bit confusing - where to put it at the end. For the cleaning price I'd prefer not to worry about it at all. Kitchen is great and pretty well supplied - go get a fresh fish and grill it on the balcony - it is worth it. We are definitely coming back again.
Listen, this place is set up with one private bedroom and one large room with a futon and queen size bed right when you walk in the door. However, the private bedroom has a nice shower in it and there is a nice size bathroom downstairs. Then you go up the stairs and there is half bath,a huge kitchen, dining space and living room (fold out couch)that opens up to a nice size balcony all with the most incredible view of the harbor, boats, lights and palm trees. One more flight up from the balcony and you now are at the top on a private roof deck area with the most comfortable chairs ever with a major view! We have stayed all over the Island and this is now our perfect rental! It is not the most gorgeous decorated rental however you are one block from the beach, two blocks from the ice cream and in the best area for peace on the Island! I am really happy our family calls this place home for even one week. If they bought new couches, it would be perfect.
The Marilla house is beautiful and we had a wonderful time. We didn't even feel like we were in California. 114 Marilla was a very nice home, comfortable, and very clean. We are hoping to make Catalina our annual family vacation spot and Civr will be our rental go-to company. We were well informed on activities & what to do during our stay. Catalina is a wonderful beach vacation getaway. The locals are super friendly. It's a tough place to leave.
It was very convenient being right in town. No need for a golf cart. The second "bedroom" is created by pulling two partitions to enclose an area of the living room. This provided plenty of privacy so I wouldn't consider this a problem. Great view from both the balcony and upper deck. I would have liked having Wi-Fi though.
I've been visiting the island my entire life and have stayed in hotels, houses and condos. This is my favorite rental and my fourth summer having rented this unit. The location is perfect and the view is to die for. We would sit on the spacious patio Bbqing or tanning on the rooftop deck all day without leaving and still feel like we have been in the middle of town all day. My favorite part of the view is being able to read the boat names from the balcony. The rental is stocked with the bare kitchen essentials but there are plenty of utensils provided. There are a couple beach chairs in the cubby under the stairs plus an extra shower in the master bedroom, which is a great convenience when sharing with a teenager. Might I add great water pressure! And I also get to pack light thanks to the in unit washer/dryer. I love this place and will be staying here again...I can guarantee you that!
Great place to stay for a couple or a small family. The second bedroom is not a room but partition doors put up in the living room. We were not pleased about it as we booked it for two couples. It would work great for kids. We were as close to the beach as possible without being in the main street. It is a very clean place and you will not find a roof top deck to entertain on like this! We will stay at this rental again.
We had a great time at our vacation rental. The house was perfect for our needs, it had an amazing view and we were in-and-out at the office during check in and check out. If we come back we will definitely use this service again. Good job Catalina Island Vacation Rentals.
