This place was rather far from the beach/pier than we expected. And it was on top of a hill practically, so I had to take off my heels and walk barefoot because the incline. BUT the room was EXCELLENT! IT had a fully loaded kitchen with pans, utensils, big fridge, glasses, and granite counter tops! They really made it seem like we were in our own little studio apartment on Catalina Island. We found this place through yelp and so glad we decided to stay in our own little studio with a full kitchen AND dining room. The office staff was pretty friendly as well. And the maids made our beds and maintained our rooms pretty well. The only thing I didn't like was that the restroom didn't have ventilation, so there was a lot of steam and extra smells lingered for quite a while. So to solve this, I turned on the kitchen stove fan and it was okay.
Our view of the ocean was pretty good, if we opened the door and blinds. It was kind of far and up on a hill so we were limited of the FULL ocean view. But that was okay because just a few minutes walk down the (rather steep) hill, brought us to the main street.
They even had a nice BBQ and patio set right in front of our room and we got to BBQ our fresh catch of the day! It was lovely. You could even see the farthest stars above from where our room was.
I will definitely consider coming here again.
