Interaction with Guests
Certainly available for any help or directions guests may need. We're a very friendly family and so guests are welcome to chat, relax and enjoy our company. Otherwise we respect their privacy.
We love the red tailed hawks that are constantly circling overhead, the soft hooting of owls in the early morning and occasionally the howl of kyotes in the hills behind the house.
There is no local public transport available to our house. One guest used a bicycle, but it's quite a hill, he was very fit, car rental is easier.
Quiet between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.
From arrival to departure, our stay at Glen's lovely home was a delight. She greeted us warmly and showed us to our room which was decorated beautifully. The view off the balcony is one to be treasured. We enjoyed our coffee and bagels sitting on the balcony in the mornings and looked forward to coming back in the evening with a bottle of wine to enjoy the beautiful lights.
Glen made our stay flawless. The only problem we encountered was leaving an iPad behind, and she was helpful in arranging for our son to pick it up for us.
We would welcome the opportunity to return in the future. If you have the opportunity to share this lovely home, you won't regret it!
Glen waited up for us and helped us in with our luggage. This was an exceptional location allowing us to live like millionaires for 6 days. The view is spectacular, although the private road up the house was a challenge to us, flat landers from Dallas. The fridge was stocked with bagels and cream cheese and coffee to get us through the first days.
The bed was amazingly comfortable!
Glen is wonderful, so interesting and hospitable. We enjoyed our visit with her and would love to come again.
You do need to be prepared for a rather hefty set of stairs as the room/suite is 3 floors down when you enter, but the charming bedroom with sitting room was built with such care and quality that if you can climb it, it's well worth it.
We felt very welcome and loved the accommodations and the fabulous view! The bagels and cream cheese in the fridge and the coffeemaker in the room was a special, much appreciated touch. We highly recommend staying in Glen's home. Very peaceful and private.
That always happens in summer, the marine layer causes the wood to buckle, as soon as the fog is over they settle flat again.
The solution is not to open the door onto the deck, BUT we rather have the buckled floor for the few months the night and morning air is so damp.
Ocean Views in Camarillo is an amazing place, it looks even better than in the pictures and the views are stunning. It is such a quiet and relaxing place it was hard to leave, Glen was a great host, great communication and we only saw her upon our arrival. We had a different entrance from the main house so we truly felt like we had our own little place away from home. The place is a hidden gem and the beaches around the area are only a short drive away. The bed was supper comfortable and Glen was gracious to accept hosting our little one and providing an extra mattress for him, if you are planing to be around Ventura or Oxnard this is a great place to rest after and have a glass of wine while enjoying the sunset and the beautiful views. Thank you!
I love staying at Ocean Views in Camarillo; I've stayed here several times (so many now I'm losing count) and I can always rely on Glen and Duncan to greet me with a heartfelt welcome and offer to get my luggage in and situated. It is nice as a repeat guest to welcomed and made to feel at home. The space is just perfect and I look forward to that view each and every time.
We just returned from staying at Glen and Duncan's home and it was a very pleasant stay. We were accommodated in our late arrival and greeted warmly by Glen. We were there on a baseball tournament and this location was perfect only 5 mins from the field. We didn't see much of our hosts, we were gone all day and only came back to shower and sleep. The room is very comfortable with a king size bed and was very clean, the bathroom was also very clean which I appreciated. There weres bagels, cream cheese, half and half for our coffee and waters provided for us.
The view was amazing, you are on the bottom level of a 3 story home, like other reviews it is truly amazing. The breeze was very nice and they have a nice strong fan. Unforturnately, we weren't there much to enjoy it. I must say, if you aren't able to climb stairs this isn't the place for you.
I would definetly, go back if we were in the area again.
I really enjoy staying at Ocean Views in Camarillo with Glen and Duncan. The room feels like my home away from home, and Glen and Duncan are great hosts. I come to Camarillo monthly for work and this past trip I stayed over the weekend. It was a relaxing treat. I so enjoy the view!
