Vacation Rental Summary
A wonderful spacious home, with a very nice kitchen, well supplied with amenities. There are a couple of negatives. The noise from Tremont Street, golf carts, trucks, loud talking, was very distracting to sleep for our three generation group (location, location!). The carpets are so dirty that our feet and socks turned black. One toilet backed up a couple of times.
From the front desk of Civr to the nice owners who allow us to share one week a year of paradise, we have nothing but great things to say. The home continually is upgraded . Although the location is on the top end of Descanso st. (my 4 yr old grandson asks " why does catalina have to be the last house") it really is a comfortable location The 3rd upstairs bedroom could use a new bigger bed if possible but we sleep cozy in that room .
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!
