Vacation Rental Summary
The rental was less than a 5 minute walk to the main strip where the shops and water are. Plus, the house was much bigger than we expected, considering all of the places on Catalina are so small. Would definitely consider this place in the future. Lastly, it was easy to work with Civr and the maid came as we were leaving and she was friendly too.
This was our family's first trip to Catalina and 243 Claressa was just what the pictures show. We had 2 little kids and 5 adults in this house and it wasn't crowded. The dining/living area is big and spacious so the kids could play and we all could just hang out. The property is well kept, close to the water and all the restaurants. The team at Civr was great. We had to pick up keys after hours and it all went like clockwork. Really happy with our experience
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Catalina, and 243 Claressa was the perfect place for our extended family get-togethers! Would recommend it in a heartbeat!!
The condo is relatively new with good accommodation. The trouble is Clarssa is the main route through town and noisy all day. The condo up-stairs may be a day care or a bowling alley. There is no sound barrier between floors.
This was a Thanksgiving vaca with my 2 sons, their girlfriends and my granddaughter. My parents moved to Catalina in 1974 and I lived on the island myself for a couple of years so I'd past by these cute condo/townhouses since my parents move. It is as adorable inside as it is on the outside, very quaint and cozy. There has been some attempt to moderize the inside, though spotty. The remodel looks as though every dollar spent was 'pinched'. We actually made a complete Thanksgiving meal in the semi-equipped kitchen and only needed to purchase a couple of disposable pans. However, the kitchen cabinets were disorganized and somewhat grungy. There was plenty of clean towels (and a washer/dryer) and clean linens. The place was tidy but in need of a thorough deep cleaning. Other than that, there is plenty of comfy sitting space for 6-8 people. The location is great (though located on a busy thoroughfare and noisy at times). We all loved staying at 243 Claressa but we were in unison about how relatively inexpensive it would be to take the place up a couple of notches.
We stayed at 243 Claressa for my birthday in late September. We were there for 5 days. The unit is clean, and has a very open layout. We has three couples, and an infant. The unit was big enough that we were not on top of eachother. The toaster broke, and management had a new over within the hour. I would stay there again.
our family loved Catalina!! the house we rented at 243 Claressa was perfect for us!! it was very spacious, comfy & close to the beach. The house was stocked with the stuff we needed to get started...the only thing I would suggest that the house needed is an updated radio with an aux. outlet to plug in our ipod. & a new TV stand, it was about to fall apart...thanks & we look forward to coming back to Catalina & staying again!!!
Nice spacious house. Good location for walking to the beach and town.
It was a very special weekend for my 98yr old father and family. We rented 243 Claressa, a lower 3bdrm, 2bath home on Catalina Island. The house was immaculate, warm and welcoming. I loved the fact that a washer/dryer was provided for our 3 day stay. Loved the big bathroom off the kitchen, however, we thought we were getting two full baths and I would say it was a 11/2 bath. The staff was very helpful, management, Janet was extraordiarily gracious and helpful. I would definitely rent it again and absolutely recommend Catalina Island Vacation Rentals and this house to my friends and family. Thank you again, for a wonderful stay.
Location was excellent-house was spacious for being a beach/island property. Hardwood floors, two full bathrooms & a decent size kitchen. Golf carts going up & down the street made it a bit noisy at times and you can definitely hear the tenants upstairs, but overall, we would rent this place again in a heart beat!
We had a 3 day stay here, with extended family from Wyoming. It was spacious and clean. The kitchen was stocked well, and the bathrooms were large and spacious. This home does need some repainting and ceiling work done in the bathrooms,but its mostly just cosmetic. There are several fans to keep the home cool. Easy walking distance to all in avalon.
The place actually has 2 full bathrooms with a sink in one of the three rooms. We stayed 2nights and 3 days. Pros: clean... (clean enough), working and free washer and dryer, full service kitchen with all the utensils you need included, fridge, microwave, stove; dish soap provided, therefore no automatic dishwasher, everything was near by... but avalon is not that big of a town in the first place; linen and towels clean and sufficient, plenty of storage and drawer space in each room; easy and early check in if available. Cons: unable to access WiFi, no cable T.V. in the living room, small (less than 32" TV) in one room and the living room; occassional stomping and loud thuds above from the second floor; it's off the street so you can hear carts and cars passing by. Tips for the beach: unless you plan to go outside of avalon... don't bother taking more than 1 or 2 pair of swimming gears... there is not much of a beach around the area; just a block of sand and rocky shoreline (bring water shoes). Ate at avalon Grille (all right but pricey, pot roast a bit chewy and dry, halibut a bit overseasoned-but moist nonetheless; Buffalo Burger "good" according to my sister, mac & cheese a little dry and bland); service great. Ate at Lobster Trap (luv their fish sandwiches and sweet potato fries) and had to eat there twice; everybody enjoyed their meals from this place, from shrimp to tacos; service great. Ate at Steve's Steakhouse: another pricey restau but worth more than avalon Grille; steaks of different kind were great-moist flavored just right; baby back ribs delectable-fell right off the bone; my only complaint---portion size quite small and clam chowder a bit runny-not much content; excellent service ate at the only Chinese Restau Mr. Nings: affordable food, but not at all comparable to the Chinese food in Los angeles, Alhambra, Monterey Park, Temple, area. But if you want to save a little, it's an okay place to get some food; hot and sour soup pretty good, fried rice okay...
Great great. My daughters and myself chose this property to spend our annual girls trip at. We enjoyed the house so much. Very roomy and comfortable. We were all very plesantly surprised. I would definately recommend it to anyone.
