                                From the first phone call to make the reservation to the final Bon voyage at Float 4, the Shelton's hospitality knows no bounds! Staying with the Shelton's is like staying at your favorite aunt and uncle's place. The apartment is so clean and has everything you'll need and more: Band-aids? Check! Great coffee, creamer and a variety of sweeteners? Check! Great toiletries? Check! Games and beach toys for the kid(s)? Check! The list goes on and on... The location of the apartment is great, too. Close enough to everything to be convenient, but far enough off the beaten path to be quiet and serene with a lovely view of the mountains. We do not hesitate to recommend Shelton's as a great place to stay when visiting Catalina Island!

                                My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay in the Mermaid suite. It was just the size we needed to crash after long walks around Avalon, our snorkeling excursion, and our drive up into the interior of Catalina! Jeanie even helped us out by showing us where to find different activities we were interested in, and recommended one of my favorite eateries, the Sandbar! The bathroom was stocked with all the essentials and more, and the fridge had plenty of bottled water. Everything was very clean, and she collected our towels when needed. An amazing stay, we will surely be back! Thanks!

                                My husband and I came to the island for our wedding anniversary. Jeanie picked us up at the boat dock in her little golf cart and transported us to their rental on the island. Our temporary Catalina home was even prettier than it had appeared in the VRBO photos. The Captain's unit was spotless, bright & fresh. We had a great view and even had a little porch to sit out on. The linens were super fresh & clean and Jeanie has the place well stocked with high end items that a traveler could easily forget. The first night I asked her where the grocery store was as I needed to buy some eye makeup remover. She told me there was no need because there was some in our medicine chest; I opened the door and found Sephora gel makeup remover! She has the kitchen equipped with anything you might need, the refrigerator is stocked with drinking water, olive oil, creamer etc. and she even provided some snacks. There is a radio in the unit and we had the choice of watching TV or videos provided. This rental is in the best location ~ it's on a little quiet, private side street which makes you feel like you are well out of the way. However, you are in minutes' walking distance to the Avalon Shops, pier, restaurants and beach. In addition to the personal attention to detail in her vacation units, Jeanie was always available, making sure we got to see & do everything we wanted to during our stay. She assisted us with getting a tour of the island interior, showed us where the Botanical Gardens were and steered us to an unforgettable parasailing adventure! We will be back ~ this is the only place to stay on Catalina! I'm going to post this on Facebook for all of my friends to see, too. Thanks, Doug & Jeanie

                                We love the island-and this place was perfect. 2 blocks from downtown. Easy walk to downtown and is close to shopping. The Mermaid room was perfect for us. The listing description was right on. Photos of the room very accurate. Jeannie the owner was helpful with questions and info about the island.She recommended good restaurants.The property was very clean! Thank You Jeannie for the birthday cake for my husband .Hope to come back to the island with girlfriends! Thanks for meeting us at the pier. We highly recommend this place.

                                I am a local here in Avalon and needed a nice place for my parents to stay on a rare visit with me. I wanted it to be very special for them. Shelton's was that special place. The property is an easy walk from town and very clean and convenient. We were able to pop in mid-day for naps and popsicles and then head out to the beach again for more fun. It was a hot August week but the suite was very comfortable and cool. Jeanie really goes out of her way to make guests feel like they are home away from home. Staying at Shelton's made our family get-together memorable and easy. Thank you Jeanie!

                                My wife and I were so impressed with Jeannie, Doug and their property, we were beside ourselves! Such a well kept place with so many extras...like bottled water, so many DVD's and VHS tapes (although we didn't watch even one), more than just average toiletries, beach towels (which mysteriously disappeared from our railing and showed up clean), plenty of keys, snacks, and extra chairs, and so much more. Jeannie baked me a birthday cake...unbelievable! And recommended the best places to go and eat in town. We snorkeled every day and ate seafood at night. Such a relaxing trip. And such a relaxing atmosphere at their place. Thanks guys for a great vacation! And while you're there, talk to Doug about a parasailing excursion!!! He runs the best one there :)

                                Jeanie took fabulous care of us!! Not only did she pick us up (and dropped us back off) at the Catalina Express but made my hubby a birthday cake with balloons, candy and a candle. We had the BEST time and will be going back ASAP. I highly recommend this wonderful, well taken care of place! Everything you need is there so leave your "stuff" at home. Towels (including beach) hair products, body wash, colognes and perfumes, first aid kit, hair dryer, I can't even think of everything THEY thought of when furnishing this place. Oh, bring your toothbrush/toothpaste, LOL! YOU'LL LOVE IT!! a block walk to town and to all the festivities with a local flair in their neighborhood. Clean, comfy, well cared for....IMMACULATELY CLEAN!!

                                Even after reading the glowing reviews...I was completely blown away by the Shelton's hospitality and their town home. Our trip was perfect in every way from the moment Jeanie picked us up from the dock until we said goodbye. This was a very special vacation for me and my three kids ages:12, 10 and 8 - it was our first family vacation as a nuclear family. We have wonderful vacation memories and Jeanie played an integral role in our Catalina experience. She interacted with my children on a very personal level. She educated them on Catalina history, indigenous species, directed them to the best places on the island to see deer, and shared where to hunt for shells. There is no price for genuine kindness. Thank you Jeanie. The property is wonderful... clean ( in spite of my 10 year old who tracked tar into the house from the beach), bright, and very functional. I was able to cook meals in the kitchen with ease. The extra touches were great from the shampoo and conditioner to the beach towels... I agree with the reviewer who would have given a 10+++. This is the first review that I have ever written for a vacation, and I am not sure I did it justice.

Take a vote and we hope to see all of you next summer, even the armadillo & raffles, for another Catalina experience.
