Vacation Rental Summary
We recently got married and decided to go to Catalina Island for our honeymoon. We loved it!!! Choosing a house to stay in during our week long adventure was perfect. Although the house is older, it worked just fine. Besides, in all actuality we basically slept there. The kitchen was fully equipped to cook a fantastic meal or two like we did. The view was amazing. It could use some upgrades, but lets face it, everything still works and that is just fine by me. I sat on the porch reading my books every morning and evening. The only downside that I could possibly complain about would be the hill that it is located on. Thankfully we took a cab there and then used the baggage pickup service and storage when we departed. I looked at it this way, "I was working off some of that great food we ate while we were there". We would rent this location again in the future. Totally worth it!
This rental was more than what we expected. It was private, quiet, and with a gorgeous view of the ocean. This place was very clean and neat. The grocery store is located very conveniently about a 3- 5 minute walk from this house.We will definitely consider staying here the next time we come to visit Catalina Island. Thank you for making our stay more comfortable and memorable!
The location was about 2 blocks up from the shopping and restaurants.. The hill getting to this place was a little steep when hauling luggage or groceries. The stairs from the street to the property were steep. If you have a physical challenge, this is not the place for you. The noise from the golf carts drowned out the TV. There is sleeping space for 4 people but that would be pushing it. This was a small place better suited for 2 people. It's good we didn't plan to cook. The knives were very dull and there was no sharpener. The free wi-f/internet access was a nice bonus.
We have been renting this unit annually for the past 12 years. For the most part, the unit is still very nice. But it is suffered more from neglect this year than in any past years that we have been there. Here are some of the problems that we encountered upon arrival this year. - No drinking glasses - Very dirty dishes (each tenant is supposed to leave the dishes clean for the next tenant) - A bed cover with a large smelly urine stain. - The satellite tv was not working and had to call a technician in for the repair. - Another renter in upper unit wrongly accused us and our immediate neighbor (who also has been renting their unit for the past 12 years)of using the laundry room which is not permitted under our contracts. Both families responded to Civr that the accusation was untrue. Therefore, renters should be advised that issues of territoriality can arise with the use of this triplex depending on who is inhabiting the upper unit. A side note: the lower unit is subject to the noise of those walking around in upper unit. This can be very noisy and disconcerting at times even though the upper unit occupants are not doing anything out of the ordinary - just normal activities. That being said, the staff at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals did their best to promptly and pleasantly rectify the situation once they were informed. I wish they did a better job of inspecting the condition of the unit, cleaning of the unit (more than just a cursory vacuum job), and ensuring that the kitchen was stocked with the necessary plates, silverware, pots, pans, etc.. We will continue to rent this unit because we like it. It is a walk up a hill which can be daunting when tired after a day at the beach or carrying groceries. But there is a view and a nice breeze once you arrive.
