Although the rooms were were a little on the small side, they were clean and very comfortable. We especially enjoyed the courtyard with the Koi pond and the numerous hummingbirds zipping around. Sitting around he fire pit in the evening was very relaxing. The staff, Lori and Carlos very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Had a great time in Catalina, very relaxing. The hotel was great we paid extra for an "ocean view" which if you look down the road you can see the harbour. The room was comfortable, well appointed and the staff was great. My only complaint was with a balcony on the road side I was ok with the idea of...

It sounds like you may have had one of our Balcony View Rooms, with a partial ocean view from the balcony. I am glad you enjoyed the balcony but sorry the golf cart noise proved unrelaxing. I hope you made it up to our roof deck for a bit and I am glad you enjoyed our other amenities. I am...

This is a great spot to stay at while enjoying a trip to Catalina Island. The bed is comfy and clean. The tile work in the bathroom is pretty. The koi pond is neat.

Great stay with the B&B offering a few nice surprises to make the stay even better. Cozy (and, PBA, lots of stairs) but in exchange you can get some very nice rooftop views of the water.

Hubby and I were in room 205 (or 207?) opting for the cheaper garden view room with a king versus water view room with a queen for 3x the price. A good choice for us.
