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 Los Angeles County

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!

Cute, Clean, Comfortable & Super Convenient Location!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further - Super cute, clean and comfortable. We could easily walk to everything, the beach, restaurants, shops, even the boat dock from here. This place is a gem and Jeanie is committed to making each guest experience the best! She picked us up from the dock in her golf cart and transported our family and luggage to the rental, telling us about the area and fun things to do on our way. My husband and I booked a long weekend here with our 2 teenage kids and we were perfectly comfortable in the space; we were out having fun most of the day. Plenty of fluffy white bath towels, pillows from soft to firm, upscale linens, cold drinks (including ice cold beer) in the fridge. Jeanie even had a delicious chocolate cake waiting for us knowing that we were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. The sleeper sofa mattress is super comfortable and so is the bed. Nicely decorated with a beach and mermaid theme and the furniture placement is just right to maximize the space. WiFi and Air Conditioning! We packed lightly and didn't bring beach towels with us so we asked Jeanie if she might have some we could borrow. She quickly (within minutes) came to our door with beach towels and beach chairs. She goes the extra step in anticipating guest needs. We had a wonderful time and we definitely would recommend staying here.

The Quaint Box

  • 4 of 5

Place is very small. Very clean and tight quarters. Just enough for two. Having 4 of us was too cramped. Lots of snacks, clean towels an tidying up daily. Quiet street. Nicely decorated, very homey. Owner provided rides to and from the boats which was a plus. Thanks again!!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about staying at the Sheltons! This was the perfect place. My sister and I spent five days on Catalina for our cousin's wedding. This was the perfect size for two people. It felt like we were right at home. It is even better than the pictures. Jeanie had the fridge stocked with bagels and cream cheese, applesauce, coffee and creamer and even beer! If you are going to Catalina, you must stay here - it is way better than any hotel on the Island! Jeanie even picked us up from the dock, offered to drive us to our cousin's wedding and took us back to the dock on our last day. If I come back to Catalina, I will be staying here!

Every detail was well thought out and taken care of

  • 5 of 5

As an owner of two vacation rentals, I found this quaint cottage a great learning experience. The small things can make the difference! Jeanne should teach other vacation home owners how to provide a wonderful experience for there guests.

Thank for a great get away trip!

Superb Avalon getaway with so much attention to detail!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at The Shelton's! The Mermaid room is updated, clean with so many added details! Jeannie, the owner, met our ferry at the dock and transported us to the rental. Once there she gave a quick tour of the place and let us know the refrigerator was stocked for our stay. OJ, bagels, coffee and so much more! To top the entire stay off, Jeannie met us with our luggage back at the ferry dock so we could spend the day enjoying the island without totting our bags with us.

We would love to stay there again if we can find a time it's available. Thanks for the excellent hospitality, Sheltons!
