Vacation Rental Summary
I liked the condo but we did have some issues. The carpet was a mess, the blinds were falling off, the dishwasher didn't work and the ice maker also didn't work. Also there was a broken chair. I did call about the dishwasher and the manager came within 10 minutes but was unable to fix it. I did enjoy the bathrooms and the bedrooms and the view was very nice. You could see the harbor from the balconies. Note the condo is up a very steep hill so be prepared!! All in all the condo was comfortable but really needs some updating!!
Thank you for your review. We addressed the issues you mentioned. The dishwasher could not be repaired and has been replaced. The blinds and chair were repaired, and the carpet was cleaned, and continues to be cleaned when needed.
This was our first time visiting Catalina and now can not wait to return. Our rental home was gorgeous, fully stocked and so cozy. The view from the 2 upstairs bedrooms is breath taking and the sounds of the boats coming in is something wonderful to wake up to. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the decor of the home was relaxing. My only suggestion would be to have the carpets cleaned. They are fairly dirty, which is something we noticed, but is not a negative reflection on the overall feel. Also, the home is located on a very steep hill and the rental does not come with a golf cart, so being able to walk with ease is important. The location of the house is perfect. We walked everywhere our entire stay. The Vons (grocery store) is conveniently located down the hill as well as all of the shops, restaurants, and activities. Our experience with Catalina Island Vacation Rentals was exceptional from start to finish. Every thing was made so simple; from the initial inquiry about a rental to the time we checked out. The staff was great about communicating via email and sending me all of the information and forms I needed in a very prompt manner. We will be back and we will be using Civr!
This 3-level condo is really nice. It has the newer updated feeling. The kitchen is nice and spacious with granite countertops and the decor is fun and current. There's a nice view of the ocean and it's really a nice place to relax, once you get there. However, the location of this condo can be seen as a negative. It's at the top of a hill up a really steep driveway. We walked everywhere so by the time we got there we were definitely sweating like we just worked out. It would have been nice to have air conditioning at that point but it doesn't. There are only ceiling fans and lots of windows you can open but that didn't help with the humidity. So I would recommend the owners consider putting in air conditioning. Othere than that it's a really nice place that accomdates 8 people comfortably.
House was immaculate, rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff at Civr were friendly and easy to work with. Overall we had a wonderful time.
Excellent home with great view and brand new kitchen. Excellent location. Property had great large comfy beds that all enjoyed. The condo was clean and well kept. The only issue was a lack of beach chairs/towels in the house for use and the dishwasher did not work very. Cleaned all dishes by hand. Would definatly use again though.
I was very impressed by the quality of the bedding, amenities and view. The morning sunrise was my favorite.
Key pickup and return was simple. The condo was roomy, in great shape, w/ good kitchen and laundry facilities. Great views from both balconies. It is on fairly steep hill, so be prepared for that.
Really enjoyed the space, got a lot of exercise going up and down the stairs. Location, Location 217a Beacon condo was fabulous. Definetely, will return to a Vacation Rental property next Oct. My only discomfort was no stocking of face towels.
