About Jeanie Shelton

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!!

Jeanie Shelton purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Jeanie Shelton chose Catalina Island

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.

Outstanding service and many lovely surprises!

  • 5 of 5

Jeanie goes beyond expectations when staying in her property. Transportation to and from the Catalina Express including meeting us at the dock with our luggage after storing it for the day! That was REALLY a great service! The unit is small but as described. Very clean and bright. So many toiletries, hair dryer, snacks, including chilled water, English muffins, coffee, tea and more! Right in the heart of town and up the street from the new Catalina Island Museum. Thanks you for a wonderful stay and we'll be back!

The apartment was perfect in every way. Located in a quiet side street just a short walk from the center of town, the apartment was fresh, bright and clean. The refrigerator was stocked with plenty of bottled water and a much appreciated bottle of champagne!

Great Long Weekend with the Family

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I could not have more pleased with our stay at the Shelton's in Avalon. There is indeed Truth in Advertising as what you see in the pictures and descriptions is exactly what you get. No, the place is not palatial in size, but every inch is well thought out, well curated and designed for comfort. Starting with the personal dockside pickup by the owner in her golf cart, to the cold beverages in the fridge, to the fresh white towels in the bathroom it was all welcoming and comfortable. The location is only a couple blocks from town - close enough for a quick walk - far enough from any late night nonsense. Very happy with our choice and would stay again any time!

cozy and beachy place

  • 4 of 5

This small apartment is perfect for 2 adults or 2 adults with small kids. The location is perfect. We had a wonderful time. We would stay again here.

It´s near the little center but on a quiet street. Jeannie, the owner, is very nice and kind. She picked us up form the ferry and gave us a lot of good advice.

I would suggest hanging some darker shades in the room and living room so the light does not wake you up early in the morning.

Also, be aware there´s no stove nor oven in case you were planning on cooking a meal but , there´s a microwave and a fridge with some tasty food and lots of bottled water.

There are plenty of towels (but no beach towels) and very nice toileteries

I wouldn´t recommend this place for overweight or tall people.

The museum is round the corner and it´s very interesting. There´s a small supermarket just on block away.

Go snorkerling early in the morning. The tiny beach would be empty and the visibility is better.

if you can avoid weekends, it´s too crowded.

We stay in Catalina several times a year and this place is just

perfect ! It's nice to walk in and see how clean, and cozy it is

for guest. In case you forgot something, Jeanie really goes the

extra mile to assure her guest are comfortable and have what

they need.
