I write this as I am sitting in Ocean View Suite Two! I just couldn't wait to share with others the exceptional views and service that we continue to receive at The Edgewater! We visit several times a year and this time brought our daughter and son-in-law to experience the Island. We went with an Ocean View Suite and a...

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...

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...

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.

My family and I vacationed on Catalina for a mini family reunion.

Called to inquire about staying for two nights. I was quickly informed that they don't have portable cribs or pack and play type cribs for babies. Hmmmm. Guess they don't want families. We were hoping to stay there but will have to look elsewhere.
