Houses in Avalon - 227 Descanso - 3 bedrooms - 2.50 baths


This is a great two story vacation home located only a block from the beach, and it only has three steps up to the front Dutch door on the side of the home. The first floor offers a spacious open floor plan with a living room area, dining table for six, a breakfast bar with stools facing the kitchen, as well as a half bath and laundry area near the back entrance. You will also find a 46-inch flat panel TV with Blu-Ray DVD player and a gas fireplace for those cool island evenings. All three bedrooms are on the second floor. The master bedroom suite, with a king bed and ¾ bath, also has a 42-inch flat panel TV and Blu-Ray DVD player, as well as French doors that open to an outdoor deck offering hillside views. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and 31-inch flat panel TV, the third bedroom has bunk beds, a single bed with a trundle and a 31-inch flat panel TV, plus there is a ¾ bath in the hall. Since there is carpet on the steps and the second floor of the home, please leave your shoes just inside the front or back entrance upon entering. FREE wireless internet! (There is a studio apartment attached to the rear of the house that has a year-round resident.)

Eight of us stayed here. The dishwasher was nice to have. Master bedroom was large with a private bath and access to the upstairs deck. This recently remodeled home is a short walk to all Avalon has to offer.
Great for 6, crowded for 8

Great house: clean, updated, with just about everything we needed for a Thanksgiving week stay. The listing is a bit misleading, however, if you want everyone who sleeps there to be able to eat at the same time. It is advertised as sleeping 8, but nobody tells you it only seats 6 at the table. The room which is supposed to sleep four in bunk beds actually has one sent of bunks and a twin with a trundle… which makes it almost impossible to maneuver in the room when all beds are in use. Best parts: the table out on the balcony by the master bedroom, which was sunny and a refreshing place to hang out, the proximity to everything in downtown Avalon, and even the polite and friendly neighbor who lives in the back apartment. The updated kitchen is also a plus, particularly for me, the cook. The office was very accommodating. Whoever decorated the place had hung a very heavy poster into wallboard with simple nails, and it fell, though fortunately it neither broke nor injured anyone. The leg on one of the dining table chairs broke when someone tried to scoot away from the table. In both cases, there was both sympathy and accommodation, but it does speak to the fact that this loveliness may be more a case of hiring a "stager" than of someone outfitting the place to really be lived in.
This house was amazing

We totally loved staying in this house. It was clean (!), and had all the amenities that we wanted. It slept 6 comfortably, and even had a deck off of the master bedroom that was great for relaxing on. It's located a couple blocks from Avalon Bay, so it was very convenient. The team at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals were great in getting all the arrangements put together, and were able to accommodate an early check-in and a late check-out. I highly recommend this rental property, Catalina Island Vacation Rentals, and visiting Catalina Island!

This duplex is a great place to stay for a week visit or a weekend. It has a small rental unit on the back that you do not even know is there. The master has a balcony with views of the canyon and a peek a boo view of the water. It is near the Von's express, the Plaza (where the tours leave) and a short block to the beach. It is definitely not beach shack. There are beach chairs and an umbrella. We didn't use the little BBQ which you appear to use in the 3' side yard between the houses. We were composed of 1 60+ couple, 2 17 y olds & a 19 y old couple.

Stolen ipod!

The house was wonderful. The amenities were very nice. My communication with the office was decent up until checkout. My son's ipod was stolen and after many calls to the office to get help, I was never called back. I finally got the number to the manager, who was kind enough to help look for the ipod, but there was zero accountability with looking for who stole it to begin with! I have called no less than a half dozen times, to no avail. I will not stay with this company again.

I'm sorry that your son's i-pod was lost. I'm not sure why you are blaming our company, as no one associated with CIVR misplaced, or took the i-pod. When you called about the i-pod and gave me a gps location, I personally went to the address you zeroed in on and looked through the vacant property, around the yard, and in the empty lot behind the identified property...none of which were related to our company.
