Vacation Rental Summary
Three families stayed at 316 1/2 upper level Catalina avenue with four teenagers. The home is old but very nicely appointed with everything one could need. There is a washer dryer and a clothes line and 3 blow dryers, a beach cooler, and two red wagons for carting groceries or beach gear, and two small, beach chairs to use. There is a small BBQ on the main floor that both units can use in the street for fire safety. All the appliances are new. The kitchen is equipped with nice dishes, glasses, bowls, and cooking pots and pans. They could use a few more cutting knives when cooking or sharpen the ones there. There is lots of extra bedding although we could have used more pillows in each room. The flat screen TV has lots of great channels. The home is located in the middle of town near everything. It is very bright and sunny. All the windows open up - no screens if you have small children. Cool evenings mean no air conditioning is needed. They did have two nice fans that we used during the day to keep cool. The table fits 10 and we ate big brunches there everyday after our morning walk and before heading to the beach. We would love to rent here again. Compared to other prices for weekly rentals on Catalina this one was the best for the money. The internet did not work and the rental agency repair man is so nice and fixed it quickly. The washing machine door did not shut properly and the repair came back and fixed that quickly. He deserved an extra tip for his prompt response and nice attitude. And he fixed both items the first time he came.
We really enjoyed the wonderful charm of this home. There was plenty of room for everyone. We enjoyed a nice Spaghetti dinner at the large dining table along with playing plenty of games. Everything was within walking distance and the location was perfect. We loved how we could open the windows and sleep with the ocean breeze coming through. We would absolutely stay here again and again with our family. Christine, Chuck and Family
