About Mark Rhodes

A family man, loving husband and a New Mexico attorney. I enjoy traveling and seeing the world.

Mark Rhodes purchased this house in 1988

Why Mark Rhodes chose Avalon

I bought this property for me and my family to relax, get time away from my busy law practice and to create new memories for us all. This property is quiet and my family and I have made many memories here. Now that my children are adults, it is time for my grand children to start building their memories here too!

What makes this house unique

This home is a full functioning home with a grill and backyard that adults can relax and children can play.

Lovely 31 year anniversary getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a charming,, beautiful, and peaceful place to stay. Mark's home had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. We cooked delicious meals and especially enjoyed the fresh herb garden. The home is well cared-for and within easy walking distance of everything. We plan on returning to Avalon in the future and would definitely want to stay at Mark's place again.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

It is a quick 10-minute walk (no hills) from the Avalon Harbor to this cute and very spacious home in Avalon. The place was super clean, the bedrooms big, and backyard perfect for our family of four. The kitchen provides all the basics in new appliances such as microwave, coffee machine, oven, gas stove and large refrigerator. We were happy to see a brand new BBQ in the backyard filled with propane and ready for us to use. We highly recommend this place for its convenience to the Avalon waterfront, museum, shops, restaurants, and super great price!

Cute property decorated in the theme of the island. Perfect space for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful place to relax and unwind. This vacation home was very conveniently located to everything. 5 minute walk to the boat and less time to shopping and restaurants. This home is perfectly sized, it’s very clean and inviting. Home away from home. We had a wonderful time exploring the island and it’s history. The locals are all very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here at Mark’s home, we had a wonderful vacation. Thank you Mark for sharing your home with us.

Perfect property for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Property is perfect for a weekend getaway! We had 5 girls staying here for the weekend, and we never once felt cramped. Two bathrooms, one downstairs with full shower, makes it easy to get ready with multiple people. Super close to all of the shops and restaurants, less than a 5 minute walk.

Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5

The house had pretty much everything you need and having a yard and grill was a big plus! We were able to have BBQ dinners at home and then go out on the town. It had a brand new stove and refrigerator. I slept downstairs on the couch/futon that was pretty comfortable. We had enough room for everyone. The feel of the home was a bit outdated but when you are in Catalina your not home very much anyway!

Perfect get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house for 3 weeks. It was perfect for me and my family. Plenty of sleeping room, a great backyard area with a beautiful view of the mountain side and a nice breeze. We BBQed regularly and it was close to town. There was a washer and dryer, and everything we needed to feel right at home. The property manager was very friendly and helpful and was sure to make sure we had everything we needed. Looking forward to booking again next summer.
