Houses in Avalon - 153 Crescent Ave. - 3 bedrooms - 2.50 baths


You'll walk in, look at the view and go WOW! This charming, spacious (2400 SF) 3 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is a wonderful combination of classic Catalina charm and incredible ocean views. Located above the Tuna Club at the corner of Crescent and Maiden Lane, you're close to everything you need...including the ocean. New carpet, paint, and appliances in 2012 and new living room furniture in 2013. The master bedroom with king bed and bath and the 2nd bedroom with twin beds and half bath are on the upper/living level. The 2nd master suite with king bed and bath are on the lower level and has its own private entry. There are two 42-inch flat panel TVs with Blu Ray DVD players, as well as WIFI, but who needs technology when you should just kick back and enjoy the view!

Beautiful view and great location. A little dated, but comfortable.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The house is located conveniently above the harbor and has a terrific view. The available golf cart was a real bonus. My daughters and I we able to explore Avalon and the environs easily. The property was a bit dated inside, but fully functional. The front door lock was a bit finicky. The drapes/curtains in the master bedroom were jammed half open and could not be moved. Otherwise, everything seemed in working order. When we arrived at the rental office, the staff handed me an envelop with the keys and said to empty the garbage, fill up the tank on the golf cart and return the keys when done. I wasn't given any guidance as to anything else at the property. It wasn't that they were unfriendly. It was as though I knew exactly what to do and that everything had been checked out in advance and was fine. I had the sense they were very busy and didn't have time to focus on me. When I returned the key, the man there was very friendly. Overall, a great experience.
What a View!

We loved staying in this house. It's in a great location, has very spacious bedrooms and living room. Excellent for family gatherings. The view of Avalon Bay is amazing. The outside bedroom (downstairs) didn't bother us, but I do agree that the mirror/door blocking the entrance to the upstairs bathroom should be removed so that you don't have to walk through the bedroom to use the restroom. Other than that, the house is a great stay!
GREAT VIEW but...Beware of MAJOR construction project across street

Other reviewers have posted the limitations of the rental, with which I concur. Rented till June 15, 2015. Be aware that there is a SIGNIFICANT long-term remodel project going on on the other side of the street during the week. Expect a cacophony of sounds, smells, hub-bub and debris. Saws, nail-guns, routers and sanders. It also appears that at least some of the construction workers live on the property during the week (think cases of beer, noise and BBQ action after work). Such a lovely way to relax and enjoy your vacation! I was told by the "on-site" construction manager that CIVR was aware of the construction project, as previous renters had complained to him about the noise. When I brought it up with CIVR it was "Oh, really? I wasn't aware!"
Great View but needs some remodelinh

Just got back from staying in this home. The home is far enough away from town to make it nice and quiet at night. The view is fantastic and the roominess of the living room area made it very comfortable. What I don't understand is why the owners won't do what most of the commenters are asking and remove the mirror in the hall so that the bathroom can be accessed from the hall and not only through the bedroom. The amount of money this place is for the night should warrant a bathroom re-do or reconfiguration. There is only one shower upstairs so be warned. The other powder room off the other bedroom is smaller than an airplane bathroom...I'm seriously not exaggerating. I had to straddle the toilet to shut the bathroom door. There also needs to be access to the downstairs bedroom. The view is worth the hassle but the owners either need to be very clear about the bathroom situation or lower the nightly price.

This was our family's 2nd time and not being able to go directly to the bathroom is very frustrating for those sleeping in the living room. Also the carpet seemed very dirty. We love the view and location
Best place to have a family vacation without hassel.

We have been coming for over 50 years and this time we stayed in a house w/great view. House could use some upgrades, need another access to bathroom(take down mirror). Location was perfect.
What a View

The house is very nice. I think we must have been the first guests to rent with the new furniture. The kitchen was well stocked and we needed that because we had 12 people for dinner. All of us would specifically want to stay here again. The only "look-out" to the owners would be the plumbing system needs to be replaced. The pipes are old and the water pressure is being affected. I am speaking from experience here.
+The View was fantastic!!!

When we arrived we were so excited to see the best view ever! We spent most of our time on the patio. It was nice to be near town. The downstairs bedroom was Ok but having to go outside to get to it was strange but worked out. The mirror in the hallway that covers the door to the bathroom needs to be removed so that the bathroom can be used without going through the bedroom.
All about that view!!

I rented this house to celebrate my son's graduation from college. Boy it was amazing! First the view is so breath taking you never want to leave. The house had everything we needed to be very comfortable. The size of the house was perfect as well. I would definitely refer this house to everyone! The location was ideal, just a short walk to the store and shops and restaurants. There are a couple of things that would have been nice to have available, a golf cart for sure! Walking up that hill a couple times a day can really wear you out. Beach chairs would be a nice touch as well. Other than that, it was nothing short of perfection. I will definitely be back!!
