Vacation Rental Summary
We loved this rental! The full view of the harbor from the kitchen/living room and the roof deck is fabulous and it is two blocks from the water! All the windows open for a nice breeze. The unit is spacious, has wifi and washer/dryer which made our stay even better. It was clean, the bathrooms are nice,the kitchen is fully equipped, outside shower nice, and closet with beach chairs and rolling cart was convenient. Rental company easy to deal. We would love to come here again. Notes: décor/furniture somewhat outdated but clean and comfy, golf carts on the street a little noisy at night but earplugs work for sleeping, window coverings do not block much light in the bedrooms, roof deck accessible by exterior staircase, house located two blocks uphill and a couple somewhat steep stair flights up but worth it for the view!!
My family had a blast. The home was so cute and has an awesome view of Catalina. The rooftop barbecue and chairs is such a hit...for some reason it was blocked off to be able to access through the house... that would add so much to the pleasantness of the stay.
Our family had a lovely stay in 216 Whittley C. We appreciated the convenient location -- central to all but a block off the main drag so as to avoid noise and late night revelers. We found the walk from the ferry terminal easy with our roller bags and the hill not too difficult (even with 2 kids). We really enjoyed the expansive view from the front windows in the house and delighted in seeing parasailers and cruise ships come in and out. The rooftop deck is phenomonal and we had several meals up top just staring out to sea and star gazing. The beds were quite comfortable -- even the Murphy Bed. The kitchen was well-stocked. Our criticism is mainly about the furniture in the house. Two ancient couches, neither comfortable and one a very strange size (blue). While I appreciate the historic significance of vintage wicker furniture, it simply isn't comfortable to sit on. It's poky and creaky and unstable. I would advise tossing all of these items and investing in a couple of new sofas and maybe an occasional chair or two. Furniture aside, we enjoyed this property and would like to visit again in the future.
Loved our house, felt like home. think we could live there.fantastic views, everything we needed was in kitchen, comfy beds.can't wait to return.
We have been staying at 216 Whittley a couple of times every year since 1991. It feels like a second home to us and we look forward all year to coming. The McNeils are always making nice changes to the place and it is maintained vary nicely. The folks at Civr are wonderful to deal with and very professional. We hope it will always be available to us as we cannot imagine staying elsewhere when we visit the island
We love this place, was inmaculate, we will loce to stay there again our kids love it the only thing it was noice bacause of the little cars going up snd down and some coffea mugs where chipt but had a great view fron the condo and the deck, i do recoment this place
This is our second time renting this house and we love it. It has a great view from the kitchen/living room and the deck on top is an even better view. This house is loaded with everything you need for a great time, you only have to bring your personal items and stop off at Von's and pick up a few groceries. Another great thing available in this home, is the use of the washer/dryer which comes in very handy when you have been away from home for over a week. This house is just like being at home...thanks!!! We'll be back!!!
We had an amazing week on Catalina and this rental was a huge part of having a wonderful time. It's spacious, well-stocked, comfortable and the view is beautiful. It truly made it relaxing. So whether we were out hiking, biking or sightseeing, we had a beautiful place to return to or if we wanted to remain at the house, we could enjoy the view. The check in and out was also very convient, pleasant and accomodating. My only complaint is that the regular check-out is 10 am, which I think is quite early for a vacation rental. 11 am or noon seems more reasonable. However, we did go off-season and they were accomodating if it was workable. Due to scheduling, we actually stayed in one of the downstairs units for the first two days. It was nice, but given a choice, I'd always stay upstairs! It's actually great for several families if you needed to rent all 3 units. I've already recommended it to friends and would return again. Thank you for your home!
My family and I absolutely enjoyed this home. It had everything we needed; this home is fully contained and I love the thought the owners put into making it feel like your home; The home was nice and clean, including the deck and outdoors; especially providing toys for children, and providing books and oh, everything in the kitchen is pretty much labeled so you know where things should go; great ideal! Although a steep street and stairwell, the ambiance, panoramic majestic ocean views and sunsets made this hike so well worth it. My daughters were in aW! Everything was pretty much prefect except a little glitch of no hot water in the Kitchen. But I appreciate your fast response in attending to this little inconvenience immediately. Our stay there was just so comfy and cozy. I would rent this home again in a heart beat. Thank you Catalina Vacation Rentals for the ease in using your web site, helping to finalize my plans and an easy check in and out. I've used your service in the past and I believe your professionalism is outstanding. Once again, this is a fantastic home and I can see why the owners love it! We are also thinking of using this home for annual family reunions, so do I hope the owners continue to extend their generosity by continuing to make their home available for my family to enjoy in the future. Thank you so very much.
We love 216 Whittley #c. I'm not sure how many years we've stayed but this past (2012) was our 16th jazz festival and this rental is our favorite, the deck, great views. Our joke is how long can we climb the hill plus the stairs, we're in our 60's, but we hope many more. The staff at the rental agency is great plus the cleaning crew does a wonderful job. Can't wait for the 2013 date. Jenny McGinnis
Perfect weekend getaway. Roof terrace was amazing and we virtually lived there for the weekend.
This is a charming place. The unit was clean and the kitchen well-appointed. The shower-curtain rod needed replacement. We called and a maintenance man came over right away and installed a new rod. We also had problems with the TV remote but someone came over to help. The only draw-back is that the unit is at the top of three flights of very narrow stairs, so this is not the right place for anyone with knee problems or mobility issues or who cannot carry their luggage up the steps. The views of avalon are gorgeous and the rooftop deck comes equipped with two recliners and a table for 4 under an umbrella. Just bring a citronella candle as the bees were a bother. We had a wonderful time and would happily return.
