Casa Santa Cruz and Casa Santa Rosa, named for two other islands in the Channel Islands chain, offer a dramatically different way to stay at the Isthmus, which is known for camping and boating.
"These two homes represent a level of luxury and convenience that has not been available to Two Harbors visitors in the past," said Kevin Strege, president of Catalina Island Vacation Rentals, which is now managing the two properties. "Both homes have amazing views, luxurious linens and all the comforts of home."
Casa Santa Cruz and Casa Santa Rosa are the only vacation rentals available at the isthmus of Catalina, the popular Southern California island's narrowest point and home to the small community of Two Harbors.
These new accommodations are a result of a partnership between CIVR and the Santa Catalina Island Company, which owns most of the island's visitor services and privately held real estate.
"Catalina Island Vacation Rentals has always had excellent synergy with the Santa Catalina Island Company," Strege said. "This new partnership builds on that relationship and the desire of the two companies to bring new experiences to Catalina Island's visitors."
CIVR has long been a leader in providing a vacation rental option to visitors to Avalon. Two Harbors, located about 20 miles from the island's only city, provides a vacation alternative for visitors looking for a unique vacation destination.
With a wealth of adventure opportunities, Two Harbors is an adrenaline seekers dream, but its simple pace of life also make it an ideal spot for relaxation. "Two Harbors offers a vacation experience unlike anything else," Strege said. "It's an ideal destination for anyone hoping to get off the beaten path."
One of Southern California's top yachting destinations, Two Harbors has been luring boaters for a century. "I think that many Two Harbors boaters will appreciate the opportunity to experience the isthmus while staying on shore," Strege said. "These two homes are ideal for a family or group of friends."
Casa Santa Cruz has three bedrooms and accommodates up to eight guests. Casa Santa Rosa has four bedrooms and accommodates up to 10 guests. Both properties have full kitchens, outdoor decks with barbeque grills and views of the ocean and surrounding hillsides. Complimentary transportation from the pier to the Casas and daily housekeeping and butler services are also available upon request at an additional charge.
