This is a clean and very pleasant place to stay within a stone's throw of a fairly private beach. We go there nearly every year even though we live in Florida. The management and staff are very friendly and eager to please. I highly recommend it.

We spent a week here recently and found it to be conveniently located and homey. The staff is pleasant and helpful and the beach is lovely. It was a treat to fall asleep each night to the sound of the surf.

I almost don't want to review this place, because then more people will know about it and we may not get to come back when we want. Who knew Oxnard could be soooo relaxing, beautiful and a great vacation getaway. I love the beach that is 1/2 block from the big condo with a great jacuzzi! The beach is beautiful...

Great location on the beach, and quick access to attractions, highways, etc. Quiet location so don't expect a lot of site sponsored activities. No pool, but each unit has a outside hot tub which was great.

Love Channel Island shores, only a half block from the beach and many things to see in the area. Great restaurants nearby and good food. Be sure to try Milano's in Ventura harbor for Wednesday night lobster. Also if you like lobster try Capriccio Italian Restaurant in Ventura, 298 E.

Great location to access the Ventura county beaches. The sand is just a short stroll down the walkway. Unit #5114 is well stocked but the couch is worn and needs to be replaced.

This property is located a stone's throw from the beach. Overall it is a lovely apartment with not far to drive to Ventura, Oxnard and Santa Barbara. It is a great location to see some of the beaches of California. There were some issues with late check in, but that should be sorted out so that it doesn't happen again....
