My girlfriend and I stayed a weekend to celebrate our anniversary.

We had a great time at Channel Island Shores. Well appointed, helpful and responsive staff, clean and spacious units. It's a great place to explore the area from. Bike rentals just up the beach at the Embassy Suites! Most units have private hot-tubs.

We always enjoy the great places to eat in Ventura, Dargan's Irish Pub & Capricco's. In Ventura harbor you need to try Milano's for $18 lobster on Wednesday night. Golf at River Ridge is always great!

We were a party of two couples in a very clean 2 bedroom unit. We had everything we needed in the unit even 4 TV sets and DVD players. We were close enough to the beach, that we had sand filling the curb. No problem in getting to and from the unit by car to Santa Barbara and LA. One...

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.

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.
