This place had everything you need to cook relax enjoy and play card on the very nice porch and my little dog loved the back yard and we bbq.. This owner takes great care the property and does not miss a single touch. Just need the lines for the pull out couch. When we went to bed late found that out. Maybe store it in closet so we dotn have to call office at 11pm.

This house is so cute. The master bath is absolutely luxurious .The front porch is phenomenal. The backyard has a laundry line perfect for hanging wet swimsuits. Unfortunately there is no air-conditioning & I felt the second bathroom was not up to Pare. Other than that I had a great day
Just like coming home

We love this place. We found it through family about 15 years ago and have been coming about once a year in the spring. Very cozy, character-filled cottage. It's older but the owner has lovingly appointed it so it feels very warm and welcoming. In 2015, the small main bathroom was completely renovated and is not only gorgeous (river stone concrete floors, beautiful tiled shower) but is also fully accessible. The kitchen is full stocked with everything you'd need for a family stay. 2 bathrooms, two bedrooms including a pullout couch and small fouton perfect for grandkids. Laundry closet just out the back door. Also in 2015, the old front porch which was starting to feel its age was completely removed and a new one built. The porch is a wonderful place to sit for meals with a convenient picnic table and benches and comfortable wicker furniture. Our favourite spot in the evenings with a glass of wine as the lights come on up the hillside. There's a flatscreen TV, and wireless Internet. The back yard also has a table and chairs, toys and wagons for the kids, and a small barbeque. Handy walking distance to everything, including the grocery store, the beach, very centrally located. We have recommended this place to friends and family, even after meeting tourists in town who say they plan to return to Catalina Island. We love the upgrades the owner has done, and we love the character and how she's kept that quaint cottage feel.
We loved our home away from home

This darling two bedroom home with a great covered porch in front made us want to stay even longer. We ate breakfast and had evening appetizers on the front porch every day. It was very comfortable and clean and also had a newly constructed bathroom. It took us a while to get used to the large amount of golf carts going up and down the street but that soon became part of the ambiance of Catalina Island along with all the friendly people who we met while enjoying our front porch. We walked easily to the beach, took tours of the island, and ate at the waterfront restaurants which were all walking distance close. Shopping was super close too along with the two Vons stores where we purchased lots of our food so we could enjoy the comforts of this cute house. CIVR personnel were very friendly and helpful. I think this house is well loved by the owner.

The cottage has a nice location. A quick walk to the market and beach, and restaurants. The cottage itself was quaint. Nicely decorated. Secure backyard. Comfortable beds. Kitchen well stocked. We had a wedding reception with 20 people and the covered porch and backyard was perfect to find room to gather. Neighbors are friendly!

First time renting a home in Catalina and second time renting a home ever. My experience was not what I expected. The photos make the place look cute and fresh but this home lacked pride of ownership. The front porch was dirty and in need of fresh paint for the past 5 years from what it looked like. The rear patio needed cleaning and clutter removal if you wanted to enjoy a BBQ. I'm not sure who's responsibility it is for the areas outside the home but if I owned the place I would make sure it was spotless for my guests. The front door mat was disgusting and looked like it was from a frat house and the deck underneath it and filthy railing was just as bad. The cute kids play kitchen needed cleaning and that what we had to do for our 1 year old to enjoy it. The place was smaller than expected but that didn't bother me as much as the dated and for the most part over sized furniture. Yes, it's old and cute but it lacked TLC. The house has settled quite a bit over the years so you'll have to get used to the uneven floors. What I liked best was the kitchen and local neighbor watching from the porch. This street is extremely busy with noisy golf carts whizzing by but this is where the locals live so you'll have to get used to that as well. We had 4 adults and one infant. Do not try to have any more than that! It was tough enough with what we had. And if you have a toddler beware of the lower plate glass on the doors, I don't believe they are tempered. I'll bump it up to a 2 rating because I don't really have anything recent to compare to.

Actually, the owners of 330 Sumner are very involved. It appears that the exterior did NOT get freshened up prior to your arrival. My apologies. A call to our office would have resulted in house keeping coming back to take care of the overlooked items.

This house has a wonderful, warm, homey feel to it and we absoutely loved it. We had 4 adults and never felt crowded. It is nicely decorated and has quality kitchen ware, furnishings, bedding, towels, etc. It is centrally located which is convenient although it is on a very busy street so was noisy when sitting on the porch trying to relax. Civr provided excellent service as usual.
Took twin grandsons to Catalina for first time!!

What a great property. A little noisy with a couple of houses being remodeled near by but still enjoyed the porch after 5. Totally furnished including games. Would go back in a heartbeat!!

We just returned to Texas from our Girl's Getaway in Catalina. My sister, 2 aunts, a friend and I, spent 4 wonderful days at this very cute cottage. Check in/out process was seamless. The house was spotless, well stocked and only a short walk from everything; we only used taxis to the concerts and from ferry. The kitchen was so well equipped and liked by everyone. I wouldn't call this a negative, but just wouldn't recommend the craw foot tub for anyone with bad knees (like mind) :-), but would highly recommend this property for anyone planning a trip to Catalina. I will definitely use CIVR for a rental next year. Thank you Chay.

We have been staying in Catalina one to two weeks a summer for many years. This year we stayed at 330 Sumner and it was wonderful. The cottage was comfortable, clean, some updating, easy access. I loved the porch where I could sit and read or just watch the people go by. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a washer and dryer that we could use...since we stay for two weeks, it was nice to have that amenity instead of having to take laundry downtown. Because Sumner is a main road, there is some noise from cars and golf carts, but certainly manageable and because of the traffic there are more people to watch!! It was nice having the screen doors on both front and back doors so we could open up the doors and get a nice breeze flowing through the cottage. The kitchen was compact and very easy to use. We do a lot of our own cooking, so really enjoyed the ease of it. We have reuped for next year, so I guess that says a lot...The other thing that was really nice, is we got to Catalina earlier than we had anticipated and the cottage was ready, so we were able to get the keys and start out vacation immediately upon arriving. thanks so much.
Better than home.

Beautifully decorated with numerous personal touches, we definitely recommend this rental. Minutes from the ocean, shopping, and restaurants, the location is also perfect. Catalina Island Vacation Rentals was a pleasure to deal with. Check in took minutes and all that was promised was delivered.

This was a very clean cottage, all the kitchen items one needs and well organized. Location is very central, can walk anywhere. We loved the front porch! and back private patio with charcoal BBQ! The only complaint is they only supplied 1 roll of paper towels and 2 rolls of toilet paper, plus 2 mini bars of soap for the shower. This was for 4 nights and 4 adults. Thought that was cheap. We had to go buy our own.

We’ve been going to a little beach cottage on “The Flats” in the quaint town of Avalon, Catalina Island, California, for at least 10 years. We like to break the back of a long Saskatchewan winter, and get a jump on spring. 330 Sumner, managed by Catalina Island Vacation Rentals, is a much-anticipated destination for us. We have traveled extensively worldwide, and this little hideaway is one of our top five favourites. Two weeks at a time means we’ve developed affection for the place as if it were our own. The cottage is an oasis of peaceful relaxation and a constant sanctuary for us. If you’re not familiar with Catalina Island, and the little city of Avalon, think a quaint seaside village, built Mediterranean style up the hills overlooking Half Moon Bay. The island is 22 miles off the coast of California, accessible by several ferries and even a 15-minute helicopter ride if you simply can’t wait the hour or so boat trip (though you’ll miss the dolphins). The Avalon harbour’s most famous sentinel is the iconic Casino (not a gambling casino, but ‘casino’ as in the Spanish ‘meeting place’) with its breathtaking movie theatre and 1930’s ballroom that is still used for movie premieres, galas and various events throughout the year. You can buy tickets for a host of activities and events while you’re here. Just Google Catalina Island in advance and you’ll soon realize you’ll have more than enough to do and see, including guided walking tours around town and to various points of interest including the Casino itself. But back to 330 Sumner. The cottage a classic beach house centrally located within an easy stroll of shops, the beach. Almost anything is within walking distance here, so if you’re moderately fit and can hoist your backpack, you can make the walk home from the Catalina Express boat terminal with maybe a short rest at the halfway point. The 2-bedroom (there’s also a pullout couch so it sleeps 6 comfortably), 1 and 3/4-bathroom cottage is older, but lovingly well maintained. The master bedroom has a huge king sized bed, a flat panel TV and a ¾ bath. Second bedroom has twin beds and a pullout futon, great for the grandchild. The main living area has a 26-inch flat panel TV with cable, DVD/VCR and a big selection of DVD movies, many kid friendly. The community library is just down the street; you can get a membership card with a California proof of residency. There’s also a shop down on the habourfront at the end of Sumner where you can secure DVD rentals with a credit card. But for goodness sake, don’t spend all your time inside watching movies! If you must have a theatre experience, none surpasses the Casino theatre so put that on your ‘must do’ list. The cottage has been attentively upgraded and renovated over the years, painted this year and you are welcomed with colourful flowers in the boxes along the front porch. The place is full of special memories for the owner, who continues to use it periodically and it looms large in the childhoods of her family who in turn bring their own kids here. The house is outfitted with anything you’d need and a fully equipped kitchen for your own cooking, baking and barbequing. You’ll be pleasantly surprised that there are always some non-perishables left in the pantry by previous guests, so take stock before you pop over to the grocery. Just pay forward that favour when you leave. Get yourself a Vons membership card; the grocery store is just a couple of blocks away and a card will mean substantial savings. Perhaps it’s true what they say about island life; people are smiling and friendly, always willing to provide you with information, and happy to hear about where you’re from. Even the Vons staff are cultishly friendly. There are games and beach toys for the kids, wagons to take pails and shovels down to the beach for sand castle making. There’s a barbeque in the little back yard. A washer-dryer. Towels and bedding are all supplied. There’s a front porch with a table and comfy chairs so a morning cup of coffee is all you need to watch the golf carts go by as people head to work or take their children up the hill to school. The porch borders the sidewalk so you have ample opportunity to greet the neighbours and visitors, and even get some neighbourhood lore from the old timers. If there is anything you feel you’re lacking, you’re probably not in holiday mode. We think of 330 Sumner as our little piece of home in paradise. We relax, we hike, we write. We go visit Lolo the barber who, at 83, still has a steady hand for straight razor shaves and is possibly the sweetest man alive. It’s been our island retreat for a decade and we look forward to coming back here for years to come. We know you’ll enjoy it as much as we do. You can find “our cottage” at Catalina Island Vacation Rentals (CatalinaVacations.com) or call 855-678-CIVR. For a visitor’s guide, go to www.CatalinaChamber.com.

I know it sounds cliche, but this rental was truly a home away from home. We weren't missing anything other than food for the weekend. The house itself was in very good shape, since it was built in the early 20s or so, and so charming! The location was perfect; it was only three blocks to the beach and the pier and the area was beautiful and quiet. I can't wait to go back to Catalina Island and hopefully stay here in this house.

My husband,(daughter, son-in-law) and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary over New Year's weekend. We had our honeymoon in avalon! The cottage was less expensive than two hotel rooms and the atmosphere (cute and cozy) was perfect for our family. We are accustomed to camping, so we brought sleeping bags and sleeping hats and we were glad that we did. This cottage is quite old (quaint) and not well insulated. It has a good heater, but we didn't want the noise all night, so we turned it off. It was freezing! So was the bathroom down the hall. So I'd recommend this cabin mostly for summer use or for hearty camper-types! Personally, we loved it...the décor is cute and nautically inspired. The kitchen is well appointed so we enjoyed cooking dinners at home. To celebrate our anniversary, we ate breakfast at Mount ada (reservations required). We are a frugal family and felt that we really got our money's worth! The management came right away when we had a little problem with a lamp...they are very nice, too. When we return to avalon, we'll try to rent this cottage again.
