Vacation Rental Summary
We stayed over Easter 2013 and had a wonderful time. The kitchen is fully loaded, great washing facilities, nice gas BBQ and wonderful side yard. Plenty of dishes, towels, etc. Two full baths (one tub only) and an outside shower. The beds need replacing. The location is close to the golf course which is a plus if you are transporting your clubs. Cannot give a 4 star for comfort due to the beds and a little traffic noise. It is a nice corner lot but little on the noisy side with the traffic. I would definitely recommend Catalina convert golf carts from gas to electric.
We can't say enough good things about Civr and this property in particular. When water damage closed the house we rented, Civr moved us here. Best place ever for three generations of family to relax and have fun together. We found absolutely everything we needed from kitchen tools to whip up a pasta dinner for seven to a well stocked game cupboard -- enough to keep three kids(and four adults) happily entertained while stranded an extra day by high winds. Civr gave us a super break on the extra night--which would have been a serious budget buster for us--and kept us up to date on ferry cancellations and schedules via email. The home also has all the info you need in little notes and signs plus the 'book about the house'. Best part for an OCD grandma: the kitchen cabinets are all labelled making it easy to find everything (and there's a lot to find!) and to get things back where they belong. Lots of comfortable safe to play, relax, eat and sleep. Best vacation rental ever!
We had a wonderful weekend with 2 families in this very cozy cottage - there were plenty of beds for our group of 8, lots of fun family history inside and its location was very convenient for exploring avalon. Catalina Vacation Rentals was also very helpful and accomodating. By the way, the highlight of our trip was our 3 hour Jeep Eco-Tour with the Catalina Conservancy if you're looking for a fun activity.
The house is very well maintained, spacious for Catalina, well appointed. the bedrooms are comfortable and for Scuba divers, there is adequate space for washing and hanging dive gear. The BBQ on the patio was a welcome addition.
