The Edgewater is our hotel of choice on Catalina Island. We visited with family and enjoyed staying in both front suites. I enjoy people watching and sitting in our suite's front porch reading a Vanity Fair. It's a groovy time for all! Also go to Steve's for dinner and Maggie's for lunch! See you next month Edgewater! Fight On!

I stayed at The Edgewater for my second time over the Fourth of July. The staff were all amazing, helpful, and kind, again. Our room was perfect, again. I learned this trip that they have beach towels and chairs you can borrow, which helps lighten the load we have to carry from the boat. We plan to stay here every... More

The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. In our rush to take an earlier ferry out, I inadvertently left my clothes hanging in the 2nd bedroom closet. Thanks to Esperanza, she discovered the clothes before our ferry disembarked & notified Barbara, the owner. Since we had not met Barbara, she asked Yuri to walk with her down... More

I stayed at the Edgewater and had the best rest of my life. It's in the perfect location to see the beach. I left the windows open and slept to the sounds of the ocean. The decor is the cutest thing ever. I would defiantly recommend staying here for a Catalina visit.

The Edgewater has been my families favorite place to stay for years. The staff is fun and committed to making your stay memorable. The rooms are clean and the views are incredible. I would recommend this place to anyone. Weather it's your first time on the island, or your fiftieth! It's Avalon's best kept secret.
