About The Owner

We love meeting people and care about making their vacation a relaxing and enjoyable one.

This is our 19 summer season, we have gotten to know many family while being hosts to our new friends, it's always a pleasure to see the kids grow up & face a new challenge, swimming out to the platforms, fishing, rock climbing, and even parasailing!!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 1998

Why The Owner chose Los Angeles area

We are ready for your visit, can we meet the boat? then bring you up to the room. If your celebrating a birthday, be sure to tell us! We will put a birthday cake in the room for that special touch. Maybe it is a anniversary, fresh flower would be a beautiful addition to the room. You are our number one priority!

When departing ask us to take you to the boat, check out is at 10 a.m. but we'll store the luggage for you, then deliver those bags to the dock, so you can explore more of the island without braking your back!

What makes this townhome unique

Coffee & all the fixing are in the room. Bottle water is cold in the refrigerator along with bagels & cream cheese, for a simple breakfast. We take good care of our visitors! That's why they return again & again. Hope you will too.

We felt at home

The property was walking distance to everything. It was very clean and warm and surprised us by having many food staples available in the room. I would recommend this place to anyone and definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Every excellent review before mine is true! Jeanie was so wonderful and provided, in my opinion, the best place to stay in Avalon. We felt special, cared for and welcome. She picked us up and dropped us off at the ship at the start and end of our trip. She gave excellent insight into what to do and where to go on the island. The place was more well-stocked than I could have imagined, including some food items, any toiletry you might need, games, maps, and more. Everything was super clean and beautiful. The bed was amazingly comfy. Everything there is fresh and clean. I can tell she puts her heart into what she does. And thank you, Jeanie, for giving my daughter some shells. She will cherish them. We can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: We loved meeting Sonya and her family. It's always fun to watch a first time visitor to the island! It brings back a flood of memories for me! Thank you for being careful with our home Catalina! Please come back for many visits whenever your parents will bring you!

Incredible experiance on Catalina Island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to visit Avalon for the first time and couldn't have been happier with choosing the Shelton's as our place to stay. Jeannie is very accommodating; from the first moment we met at the docks, where she takes us and our bags to her house, to her great knowledge of the island and activities that must be done. This was the first time we have ever done a VRBO and the benchmark is now set. Things like beer and wine in the fridge, or almost any toiletry you could need, (or forgot), is at your disposal. The only thing we regret is not staying longer. We stayed in the Mermaid room which is a perfect size for a couple.We cannot wait to return to Catalina Island and stay at the Shelton's.

Had a wonderful experience here!

  • 5 of 5

Being VRBO owners/operators ourselves, we can honestly say that Jeanie is a model host. We stayed here for our anniversary with my mother and our 2-year old son. The space is exactly what we needed for a base-camp where we could prepare meals and rest between activities. The location is completely central to everything in Avalon - we literally walked everywhere from here! This is truly a home away from home with all the toiletries and sundries you could ever need - so much better than a hotel! As other reviewers have stated, Jeanie is very accommodating and understanding about shuttling luggage to and from the rental and boat dock and storing it for her guests on arrival and departure days. That was most helpful and made us feel like VIP guests! Thank you Jeanie, we'll be back!
