I will rent the house again
Arrived on the express and easily found the cottage and was able to enter following easy instructions. The cottage was very clean, appliances were mostly new. Everything we needed was at hand.
The cottage was comfortable, warm and cozy. Very much enjoyed my visit.
Loved this little cottage right in the middle of Avalon!
This was our second stay here and we enjoyed it once again. It's a great laid back cottage in a convenient location. We look forward to coming back again :)
There is nothing modern about this place
There is a lot wrong with this place. There are very few electrical plugs in the house. To plug in your computer, phone or fans you have to unplug something else. There is no garbage disposal. The place slopes so bad from front to back you have to prop books under the doors to keep them open. The latch mechanism on the front door is not there so the door will not stay closed unless it is locked with the deadbolt. By far the worst aspect is the floor plan. To get from the back bedroom to the front of the house you have to go through the front bedroom. Not a good thing to do if the people are still asleep. What we did was squeeze past the washer and dryer to go out the back door then walk through the alley to get back on the street and go in the front door. The problem now is there is no door on the front bedroom so you have to be quiet in the kitchen as to not disturb your guests. Only one shower is an inconvenience for 4 people. The place was only 'broom clean' upon arrival. The wood floors were so dirty you couldn't walk around bare foot or they were black with dirt. The neighborhood can be noisy, with several nights the neighbors carrying on a conversation in the back alley into the midnight hours. On the positive side, the place is on the flats with easy access to the beach. There is ample water pressure and hot water. The bed did creak a bit but was ok on comfort. Our family has been coming to Catalina for nearly 60 years and with most of the places we have stayed our first reaction upon arriving is 'this place is nice'. This was not the case with this place.
