Vacation Rental Summary
Our family of four stayed over a long weekend in this condo. It's stylishly decorated and very comfortable. The sleeper sofa is the newer style that slides out, and was more comfortable than the traditional style in the kids' opinions. No A/C, but the unit has fans. Some things are a little worn or broken (e.g., carpet stains), and the washing of some of the kitchen utensils was questionable (which is really the fault of previous renters, not the condo), but overall we found the cleanliness perfectly satisfactory. Best of all was the view, and eating out on the patio and looking out over the town and harbor. That was so pleasant. The jacuzzi and pool are pretty typical for a condo complex, and fine. Location: while it's a couple blocks from the waterfront, we nevertheless didn't have a problem walking in our bathing suits and flip flops to go snorkeling. Avalon is that small. A caution: there are *a lot* of stairs. There's a (slow) elevator, but even so, expect to be climbing a lot of stairs. I must say, the rental agency (Catalina Island Vacation Rentals) has to be the best we've ever used. I've never gotten so many reminder emails, instructions, etc.
We were able to check in much earlier and check out later, the office was extraordinarily friendly and the apartment was clean and equipped beyond our expectations. Clean, comfortable with great view, no complaints ,highly recommend it
The Condo was great. It had two minor issues though. Issue 1 the phone didn't work. We tried to make a local call out and the phone wouldn't work. The second issue was that the bathtub wouldn't drain properly. When I checked out the associate at the rental agency said she would have her matanice guy check it out. It had a lot of stairs to get to it, but since we are young it was get excerise for us. We used the jacuzzi and it was nice. We loved the TV. I have tv channel envy. It had channels I don't have and wish I had. I gave it 3 stars for cleaniness because who ever rent this place before us didn't wash many dishes so we had to wash some stuff before we could eat.
Such a beautiful place! I planned on staying for two nights, but due to bad weather my boat was cancelled. Mgmt refunded the night that I couldnt make it. I was amazed at how nice and accomadating they were! Beautiful house decorated and pleasent and walking distance from everything! Amazing all around!
Our condo was very nice with a beautiful view of the harbor. However it was on the 3rd level and we had to carry our luggage up two short sets of stairs just to get to the elevator and then down another long stairway to get from the hallway door down into the condo. We were exhausted by the time we walked from the ferry into the room. We chose this condo because the ad said there was a swimming pool; the ad did not say that the pool is not heated after Labor Day, so we couldn't use it!
Thanks for your response. Catalina Island Vacation Rentals manages over 180 home, villas, and condos. To get the views desired some of our properties do have more steps. In the future when booking a property with us let us know if steps are an issue or concern we will share with you properties that may be more to your liking.
The pool and hot tub are managed by the association. We can on your check with them to see if it open. We have Villas at Hamilton Cove that has a pool and hot tub available year round.
Kinda had to laugh at 'that 70's show' style bathroom and the kitchen appliances (I took pictures and told friends i was in an appliance museum)! :-) Everything was super clean, worked perfectly, and the booking, check in, and check out process were a snap. Perfect getaway. Thanks for delivering everything as promised. We will definitely be back.
The staff was kind but that's where it ends. The building elevator was out of order the entire time we were there. The unit is several flights high. With luggage it was a difficult climb. Our toilet overflowed three times. Although housekeeping replenished our towels, the soiled towels sat in a pile in the hallway for 3 days. The unit was clean and the view is pretty, but our experience was ok at best.
Thanks for your response. We apoligize for the elevator not working we were told by the association that is should have been fixed quicker then it was, living on an island it is not always easy to get things fixed as quickly. The housekeeping staff should have removed the towels in a more timely manner also. This was addressed with them. In the future always call our office if you have any issues and will work as quickly as possible to address.
