Our weekend could not have been better--thanks to the amazing views, beautiful decor, comfortable beds and the warm hospitality that the Brisacher family provided. We discovered the family has owned and operated The Edgewater for four generations since 1922. The Edgewater recently was remodeled and all furnishings are topnotch. A nice bonus is that a continental breakfast is included and the kitchen is also handy for making coffee or tea in the evening. Barbara and Brittani couldn't have been nicer and was quick to recommend island activities and restaurants. We can't wait to go back soon and highly recommend The Edgewater!

Our family loved the convenient acccess to the Edgewater Hotel, as it was only a short walk from the Catalina Flyer, and is located in a terrific, central location right on the main street of Avalon. We enjoyed walking and hiking from the hotel, with no need for other transportation. We were right in the center of shopping, restaurants, the beach, pier and harbor as soon as we came down the stairway from the Hotel to the boardwalk. The famous Casino was only a short walk, and the Botanic Gardens and Wrigley Memorial were a beautiful, easy hike from the Hotel. It was fun to be in the center of the action, and then go up the stairs to a serene and extremely comfortable environment. The view of the stunnng Harbor from the front rooms of the Hotel is magnificent. The retreat areas, elegant decor, and fountains outside some of the rooms added to the pleasant and relaxing feel. I especially loved the stunning photographs, by the talented Brittani Brisacher, that grace the hallway, showing different scenes of the Island. The continental breakfast and kitchen area certainly added to our convenience and comfort, as we had access to them during the whole stay. The friendly staff were available to give us suggestions and answer questions about activities on the Island, and their pride in their Hotel and the Island were evident. What a great place to be in an Island paradise so close to the mainland!

I have stayed at many beachfront hotels, but none capture the beauty, relaxed atmosphere, and convenience that this hotel offers. The hotel is family owned and operated, and they are all very friendly and helpful. There is a magnificent view of the harbor, and you are in walking to distance to all the bars, restaurants, and leisure activities that you desire. It has recently been remodeled, and the place is beautiful. The room was exceptionally clean and quiet. We can't wait to go back!

If you want a GREAT vacation with the island feel, head over to Catalina--we took the boat from Marina del Rey--easy access, fee for parking and takes under 2 hours. Good option for those not wanting to drive to Long Beach. The Edgewater is a charming, small B&B with fantastic ocean views. It was completely remodeled and reopened in the summer of 2009--the Brisacher family has owned and operated the hotel since the 1920's and treat you as family. Beverly, Barbara and Brittani are the perfect hosts and can answer any question you have and make sure that you have a wonderful vacation. Brittani is a talented graphic designer and many of her photos are displayed in the hotel--showing the beauty of Catalina and the historical buildings on the island. We can't wait to go back and will definitely return to the Edgewater time and time again. The Edgewater is the perfect hotel with the best location and views!
