When planning a relaxing escape, many of us are faced with the dilemma of seeking the ideal combination of intimacy and professionalism. Bland, characterless hotels offer reliability but little in the way of uniqueness and warmth seen in small, family-run guesthouses.
Casa Mariquita strikes a perfect balance: excellent amenities while also staying loyal to the island’s wonderfully special atmosphere. Only those who’ve visited before will truly know, but Catalina Island makes for the perfect escape from hectic daily life! Close enough to touch, but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.
Of course, it isn’t just business travelers that demand and require excellent amenities and reliable staff. Whether you’re celebrating a special event, or here just to relax, you need an experienced in-house team to ensure every part of your trip flows perfectly smooth.
One reason so many guests place their faith in Casa Mariquita is that the whole team is totally dedicated to making each stay a perfect one.
Be In Touch
The hotel team is courteous and prompt in communication. Reach out if you have any questions, are planning something special, or would like to receive more information regarding a stay.
No request is too specific or too large! The management team is also aware that each guest has slightly different requirements regarding a stay. Again, please reach out if you’re seeking advice or a helping hand.
A Little More…
Your Spanish-style Escape…
Built in 1990, Casa Mariquita Hotel is modern but certainly not lacking in quaintness and character. Although a Catalina hotel that is conveniently located in Avalon town, the accommodation is still a short walk from the beach. It’s also conveniently located close to some of the island’s finest dining establishments and stores.
At the same time, the building is sufficiently ‘set-back’ from the hustle and bustle to offer calm and tranquility. This means the property is generally less crowded and noisy than other island hotels. The team also runs packages tailored to specific guest’s needs.
Casa Mariquita has a fantastic range of diverse room types — ranging from grand suites to family-friendly rooms with two queen size beds. In addition to suites, the hotel has wonderful king rooms with equally superb views. Several rooms also adjoin, making the hotel ideal for families. For the ultimate in luxury, why not try the perfect penthouse, featuring a full kitchen and a fireplace!
As Avalon is the beating heart of Santa Catalina Island, there is no better place to base yourself during a trip than the centrally located Casa Mariquita. Many guests enjoy getting around by foot, but golf cart/electric bike rentals are available, as are many taxis. The office for renting electric bikes is situated just next to the hotel itself.
There are endless ways to entertain yourself in the sunshine paradise. Beach and water activities are timelessly popular, and shopping/dining facilities on the island are simply excellent. The nearby golf course is also well-loved by locals and visitors alike.
For the more adventurous traveler, you’ll find tours organized by local companies that will whisk you around some of the more interesting local sights.
Rooms located on the hotel’s upper floors offer many exquisite views of the harbor area and some rooms also offer private patios. The range of room options means that there’s something for everyone, from families to couples. There are also accessible rooms on the ground floor.
Avalon’s enduring popularity stems from many things. A taste of old-world paradise, a relaxed way of life, and a pleasant climate are all big factors. Plus, the proximity to the mainland means that the hotel is just a short ferry ride from some of California’s most populous areas. Most of all, however, the island is loved for the hospitality and friendliness of locals, who help shape the unique positivity for which the island remains famous.
