Vacation Rental Summary
This house was perfect for our stay. We arrived early and were able to check-in early without any problem. Someone offered to show us the location of the house in the case we might get lost. Fortunately, it wasn't necessary and was very easy to find. The door was a little tricky to open after locking but we were able to get fast assistance with getting back in. Our group had an amazing time in Catalina. The house was spacious, clean upon arrival, and gave a very homely feel. We all felt like it was our home away from home despite it being our first time there. We always talk about going back. We're constantly reflecting on how nice the house was and what a great time it was staying there.
This was our second time staying at 358 Descanso. This is a wondeful place to stay. We have a large family and we had plenty of room! I only gave 4 stars for the location because it is a little ways from the beach. We like to walk so it was no big deal. Everything else was great! They even found my Mother-in-laws battery charger she left behind and they are going to mail it to us!
We all felt like we were at our own home enjoying avalon. Very homey, comfortable but still felt like we were on vacation.
My family of 10 stayed in this wonderful house for one week during august, 2012. The house fit us perfectly. The kitchen was large, making it very easy to cook dinner for a crowd. The BBQ on the deck was a bonus, and we found a wagon on the side yard which was great for hauling groceries and the smaller kids. Everything was within walking distance, the location was perfect. Had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to others.
"The Mermaid" is a large yet cozy house located at the top of Descanso avenue. It is perfect for a large family or for two families to share. The downstairs is decorated with beautiful Catalina decor. There are two remodeled bathrooms and a large kitchen and eating area. Our family loves this house. We have stayed here twice, a week at a time and just loved it. Very relaxing, nice view of the mountains. The decorations in the upstairs bedrooms are a bit funky but can be overlooked because the house is so wonderful. A bit of a walk to the beach but you get used to that as well. Would definately recommend!
We have always appreciated the feeling we get when we come into this home. Our family has been priveledged to visit this home that sleeps 10 for several years now. Our family visits include 4 generations and everyone from greatgrandma to the youngest grandchild feel at home. We treat the home with respect because the owners truly want their guests to feel like we are part of their family, taking pride in each new upgrade. The washer and dryer make packing light. The interesting decor with every imaginable mermaid picture plus other decor make it unique. The downside -- a little bit of a trek to the beach and grocery shopping-
Stayed here with my in-laws and associated family in June 11. The Mermaid, as it's known, is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath vacation house rental. Accomodations are comfortable and quaint. The house is ideal for families and comes with a selection of water and other toys to keep the kids busy. Kitchen is well set up and the charcoal BBQ comes in extremely handy. The proximity to the golf course was nice and walks into town are quick and enjoyable. There is also a playground/park just around the corner to take the kids to. All in all it was a great stay with one exception, that being the noise late at night. I'm not sure if there is a bad element in a nearby house or if it's just a nightly route for the drunks to stumble home, but every night/early morning I was awakened by someone out in the street talking loudly or otherwise just being a nuisance. In all fairness this is not a reason to avoid this place as everything else was great.
