  • Perfect beach cottage


    We could not have asked for a more perfect beach cottage getaway! As described, it was all that we needed to relax and easily get to town and back. You won't be disappointed staying here, it has everything you need, and you can't beat the location in the flats. Thank you!

    This was our first time booking a home for our stay. We've been traveling to Catalina for off and on since 2015.

    Initial booking was non refundable, which was fine but i do usually like to book something that gives me a deadline to cancel without fees or book now pay later option.

    Communication was a tad spotty as i couldn't get ahold of the property manager until morning of arrival when i got an email from verbo/evolve with more detailed contact info.

    Unfortunately we weren't able to check in early like at a hotel however they did let us leave our luggage but not till 11am and we had arrived on the island at around 9am.

    This home was very beach themed perfect decor for the location. It felt very homey. Since we booked downstairs we were able to use the golfcart which was awesome to utilize.

    The real only downside was the wifi and TV options were extremely slow or even not working which with two little ones if we relied on that we would have had a hard time. thankfully i had planned ahead just in case since the island tends to have bad reception we were prepared.

    The upstairs tenants who were booked our first night were quite but night two there was a louder croud and in the room my daughter slept in, caused her to wake up so the noise in the back room is very loud.

    Other than that i still would stay here again, the location was perfect not too far and not too close just right. It was nice to say good morning to all the local neighbors too.

  • Close to EVERYTHING!


    We couldn’t have chosen a better VRBO for our sisters trip!This home was a close walking distance to EVERYTHING. Vons Grocery Store is only 1 block away. We never even used the provided golf cart. The kitchen had all the needed pots, pans, and dishes needed to cook. The property manager was easy to contact and respond quickly.

  • Good location with golf cart


    Having a golf cart in Avalon is quite a treat. This house however could use a deep cleaning.

  • Perfect location


    Two things we loved about this place were that it was walking distance to the main strip of stores and beach and it included a golf cart. It was a nice and cozy place.
