Island Ventures offers subsidized housing opportunities for seasonal employees. All housing units are located a short 5 minute walk to the beach or work location and some offer spectacular views of Avalon Bay.



All housing is shared and rooms have two, three or four beds. All units have living rooms and kitchens, and at least 1 1/2 bathrooms. Rent is charged at $125.00 per week which is deducted from your paycheck. This includes utilities. A $200.00 refundable security deposit, conditional upon the housing unit being clean and undamaged. A $60.00 non-refundable deposit is required for annual painting, cleaning, replenishing bedding and dishware and other maintenance at the end of each season.

All tenants must abide by the rules and regulations of the housing units and may only work for Island Ventures while living in the company housing units; no outside employment is permitted due to the subsidized housing.


Catalina Island is located 22 miles across the ocean, 1 hour from mainland Los Angeles (15 minutes by helicopter). The island boasts many great beaches, including a private beach and bar offering food and drinks throughout the day during the Summer season (May – September).

Avalon is a small town, therefore evening activities can be extremely limited. Some of the housing units are equipped with DirecTV, including movie channels.

Descanso Beach

Although a gym and other exercise facilities aren’t hugely accessible, the island has some great hiking opportunities; perfect for any exercise enthusiast or budding photographer, as the views really are exceptional!
