Overall a very nice place for 2 couples and 2 small children. The unit was very clean, efficiently stocked with all supplies, good TV and cable. Only having one full bathroom and toilet was a little difficult and the unit was a little dated, but all-in-all proximity to beach and a very quiet area was the real benefit.

We had a fabulous 2 bedroom condo complete with hot tub in our own backyard. The place was clean and well equipped. It is a one minute walk to the ocean. The staff were friendly and helpful. It's a 10 minute drive to Ventura harbour. I'd go stay there again if I had the opportunity.

The opportunity came up for us to visit Oxnard for a week. Hadn't ever stayed in that area before so we thought we would go there and explore. The condos were nicely situated between the Ventura Harbor and the Oxnard Harbor. It is just a block up from the beach which was expansive and not crowded. The condo was 2...

Spent the weekend & had a great stay. Friendly staff, clean rooms with nice new seating. The activity for the day was wine tasting and cheese. The beach is super close to the resort, less than a block and is easy to walk to. The beach is very large with very few visitors making it ideal for families with kids....

This place is my families secret oasis. We have been going here for years and we are never disappointed. Surrounded around multi million dollar beach front homes and the most secluded Beach front no matter what time of year we go. We always feel so special when we go. The wine and cheese night was fun hosted in the lobby....

I decided to book a little getaway, for my significant other and myself, and this location was amazing! We got to enjoy the beach, and the close proximity to both Ventura and Oxnard!

I really don't understand why anyone would stay at a hotel when they can stay at their very own beach house with a hottub and bbq on the porch for a lot cheaper. This place is amazing no doubt i will be returning soon!
