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.

Better than the best luxury hotel/spa/resort!

  • 5 of 5

First of all not only did Jeanie pick us up in her golf cart at the ferry dock, helping to transport our numerous (and I mean numerous) bags, but she was beyond sweet when it came to helping my two little girls feel at ease in her rental. She had toys waiting for them and a mother's day cake waiting for me! I also left my flat iron in the bathroom and she came running back to the ferry and had the captain hand deliver it to me. Honestly, it felt like being a A celebrity while also being able to have the nice home amenities of a local. The rental was immaculate, the bed was comfortable, and all the linens were very nice. We hope to make staying here a yearly trip, we just hope we won't have to be on a long waiting list, once everyone discovers this awesome secret getaway! Thanks Jeanie!

Not very comfortable

  • 1 of 5

The property is advertised as a townhome accommodating up to four people. It is actually a small 1 BR space that only comfortably accommodates 2 people. We overpaid for the property.

Owner's Response: We value ALL feedback and I'm glad to hear that you did enjoy the island for the downhill skateboard racers event. We have only ever received positive feedback in the 19 years of being an "Inn Keeper". Most unfortunately the guests didn't express their concerns to me directly & I was unaware of their unhappiness. As I remember walking pass the room & seeing the team ( 7 teenage boys) eating lunch. No you all did not fit. I did feel your pain as the home owner. Everyone wet from the rain that was falling all weekend long. Let me take a look at my front page & revamp it for the next traveler. Thanks for the heads up.

Cute and clean Avalon rental with hillside view

  • 5 of 5

This small one bedroom unit is ideal for a couple and is located in Avalon, blocks from the waterfront. Situated on a slight incline, the front porch bench provides a nice outdoor spot to enjoy the hillside view. The interior of the unit is spotless and includes a kitchenette, sitting room, and flat screen T.V.. What takes this property from good to outstanding is the exceptional service the Sheltons offer. From snacks in the cupboard to shuttle service to and from the dock, Jeannie made a point to ensure our stay was as enjoyable as possible.

Nice property, well located

  • 4 of 5

Very nice and helpful hosts. The property is walkable to everything. Very cute cottage. We booked based on the $125/night rate but ended up paying $439 for the two nights. This may be a VRBO fee or a cleaning fee, but it is not spelled out anywhere. Just be aware when you are comparing to a hotel nightly cost. You may actually end up paying more. Again, maybe there is something that I missed on the website, but when I booked the place I was thinking the balance may be a deposit in case you destroy the cottage, but it appears to be nonrefundable. Just be aware. Overall though, a good experience and if you want to rent a cottage instead of a hotel, this is a good choice.
