11 Lower Terrace-lower | Avalon Vacation Rental


No residence in Avalon can rival this lovely property that affords 180 degree panorama views of the harbor and canyons from almost every room, yet is only a minute’s walk to the water’s edge. Maintaining the privacy of a Tuscany hilltop home, each bedroom is tastefully appointed and newly furnished. One bedroom, which opens onto a separate balcony, has a king bed and an accompanying bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen bed and single bed with an adjoining bathroom. There is a large kitchen with an ample island for eating and visiting and sliding doors that open onto a lovely deck. There are 2 living rooms, one with a new queen size pullout sofa. This home has 2 large decks with comfortable patio furniture on each with areas for relaxing, barbecuing, and eating while enjoying the spectacular views. New gas appliances, adorable bathrooms, hardwood floors, and walkways with Catalina tiles will make your stay in Catalina the most memorable vacation you could ever have!(It's absolutely worth every one of the 48 steps up to the property.) Bedroom floors have carpet, bathroom floors are tile, remaining floors are hardwood with area rugs. TV in each bedroom; a small 13".


Avalon Blue Line Baggage offers delivery and pick up service for a small fee, just ask our vacation planners when booking your reservation.

This property is truly amazing! We rented both the upper and lower sections and I highly recommend doing this if you are able to! The amount of steps sounds intimidating at first, however the views are incredible and you are less than a few minutes walk right into town. We are already planning our trip back and are definitely staying HERE!
Location, view and comfortable

Wow. This place is wow. The location of the house is right on the side of the mountain, with the most beautiful views. Even though you are on the mountain You can be at the waters edge in a two minute walk. The amenities that come with renting the house makes you feel like you are home. You name it's there. From coffee filters to plenty of towels, books, board games, tv's, patio furniture and a washing machine and dryer. A kitchen with pots, pans and silverware. I felt right at home. I will be back year after year. 11 lower terrace- lower level is my home away from home. A place where memories are made!!!!

My aunt and I stayed here and we were beyond impressed with this home. The views are spectacular and the wall of windows and amazing patio allow you to enjoy the view throughout the day. Everything you could think of needing from laundry detergent to band aids was there on hand. The homeyness of this well decorated home made our stay great. we couldn't have asked for a better home base for our trip to Catalina. My aunt is still taking about how nice the "chef's kitchen" was. We both would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is traveling to Catalina Island. Pictures don't do this place justice. You have to see it to truly soak in and appreciate views and serenity.
Perfect Stay

I stayed here with my 2 grown sons for 4 days and it was amazing!! Right in town within walking distance to everything, gorgeous views of the harbor and city lights. We cooked evening meals and ate on the terrace together with friends, it was amazing. Watched old movies in the living room overlooking the fantastic views! Bedrooms are on opposite ends so it's private and comfy, would definitely stay here again!!

I do a girls trip every year and we use to stay in hotels until we realized renting a house is way cheaper and more fun. I have stayed here for the last 3 years. The views are amazing from the deck, every morning we would get up and relax on the beautiful deck with our coffee. I have stayed at other homes but nothing compares to this beautiful and very reasonable home, also very private and quiet. It is also an easy quick walk to town. This year the lower unit was booked for our travel dates,but we were able to stay in the upper unit OMG the views were even more amazing and the price was not that much more. I highly recommend both of these units you will not be disappointed.
Spectacular View!

We really enjoyed our stay in this modern and well laid out rental! The two rooms were large enough for both my wife and I and our daughter, her husband and baby. The kitchen separated the two rooms/living areas so that we could both enjoy privacy when we wanted. The three small TVs kept us in touch with the world and the WiFi worked seamlessly! There were a few challenges. One was the lack of ventilation in the western most room. The sun hits this room very hard in the afternoons and AC would help tremendously. The bedding, towels and linens were adequate but the bed in the eastern most room needs to be replaced. I will say that the response to our concerns - the shattered window and the refrigerator going out were gracious and timely. CIVR does a great job! We understand that the property has been recently sold and that the price will increase as much as 100%. If this is the case, I could not recommend it. However, if the price is slightly increased and there is a replacement of at least the one bed, the addition of AC in the western most bedroom, I would gladly rent again.

This was the second year we booked 11 Lower Terrace. We love this place. The deck is amazing. We have decided that the distance from town and the stairs are going to change our direction to another house next year. If we could use their golf cart or the vehicular we would definitely book again. We will miss the view!
Exceptional view!

We stayed at 11 lower terrace for a week in June. This property has an exceptional view! You do have to climb 45 stairs but there are landings to rest. Our family was just thrilled with this property, very clean and updated, we can't wait to return. Only thing missing was some hangers (I purchased 12 plastic hangers and left in the unit).

4 of us rented this house. It is a little tricky to find but then everything is easy (unless you can't climb stairs). Large central kitchen with eating areas, then two sort of living rooms on either side of the eating area. Sort of meaning a sofa against a wall and a TV in front of it, so not a big deep living room at all, but two separate seating areas. Great patio and great BBQ setup. I would definitely return here again.

We rented this condo over the internet and were pleasantly surprised that it was everything as advertised. It was a short walk from the center of town and grocery store, had a great view of the harbor, had just been redone and was well equipped. The two bedrooms were separated by the living area and had separate bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed. It would not work for people with problems with stairs, but otherwise was perfect. We would rent it again if in Avalon.

We enjoyed our stay so much. Our family have been "Summer people" for like 90 years and so it was a pleasure to have our family here enjoying the view and wow a great BBQ deck! Everything in this home is perfect! We will be back next year.
Perfect stay!

We absolutely loved staying in this gorgeous home! Location is perfect, walking distance to everything, yet far enough away for privacy and peace. Will definitely be back!
Gorgeous views, great for 2 couples

We were two couples on a weekend vacation and the layout of this place was perfect. Your own bedroom, bathroom, and even living space. We used the kitchen island to play boardgames at night and the fully supplied kitchen let us cook a wonderful meal together. Catalina Island Vacation rental was an absolute joy to rent with. They are on point answering any questions you have, very organized with the paperwork for reservations, and checkin/checkout was a breeze. We would rent them again, and most definitely rent this place as well. Reading the other reviews, stairs seemed to be an issue. If it helps, it's not a continuous 48 steps up. There are several landing to break it up. We used them to do a work out. =). The location is amazing and walking distance to everything. Thanks for a wonderful time!
