The Space

Just about 20 steps to the sand! The 'Glad' House is 5 Bedrooms. 2.5 baths and sleeps 10 people comfortably. It's called the GLAD HOUSE because you are always glad to get there!

The house is freshly renovated - with renovation just complete in May 2013. It is designed and set up for comfort, entertaining and complete relaxation. Everything you need from beach chairs, towels, cooking supplies, bar supplies are ready to go. You just need to bring your bathing suit and some groceries!

The house is decorated in a modern, yet cozy beach style. The kitchen is gourmet, 'foodie approved' and fully equipped with high-end appliances, spices, wine fridge and espresso coffee bar.

During your stay, you can expect to find everything you could possibly want or need. On top of the fully appointed kitchen, we have an amazing library of music, books, CDs, board games and children's toys for your enjoyment. Although the house is not beach front, you can enjoy an ocean view from the backyard, or roof deck, as the house is just across the street from the beach.

4 small or 3 large cars will fit comfortably in driveway. Garage and laundry is not available for guests, however laundry is located at the end of the block.

Neighbors are very close by and they are super-lovely. Movie industry people, artists and professionals are all around and are very dear friends. So quiet is appreciated after 10 and no loud music or voices, as we all love our peaceful enjoyment of the sound of the waves. Smoking is not allowed anywhere near the house and neither are pets, so you can enjoy a super-clean environment for the relaxing time you need!

  • Wonderful time at a great house. Stay was even better with all the great tips on places to go and eat from Kerri.

    July 2014
  • We had an absolutely fantastic experience at the Glad House! There was plenty of room for all 10 of us and we enjoyed all of the amenities (hot tub, beach across the street, movies, games, foosball, full kitchen, etc etc) that it had to offer!

    But the best part of the stay was working with Kerri and how easy and seamless she made the entire experience! If we ever go back to California we will definitely look no further than staying at the Glad House again!

  • The Glad House is fantastic. Kerri is such a thoughtful and generous host -- she really set the tone for a wonderful stay. Thank you! Hope to come back someday soon...

  • The Glad House made our annual family reunion and holiday celebration the most wonderful success! We spent 5 glorious days over Thanksgiving on the beach, riding bikes (provided by the Glad House!), flying kites, cooking fabulous meals and making memories that will last a lifetime. Kerri was wonderful to us - so thoughtful in preparing the house for us. She paid attention to those details that make a vacation just that much more fabulous and was in regular contact in the days before our arrival and during our stay by text. She loves her house, loves that others can enjoy it, and does her best to make sure they do! This house has everything to make a 45 minute drive from LA (and several flights from Ohio and Chicago for my family) feel like a real beach vacation. Thanks Kerri. Hope we can come back soon. Is it too early to book for next year? Thank you! Thank you!

  • We LOVED our time in the Glad House. It's a beautiful home and Kerri is so wonderful to work with. This was my second time staying here, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Ventura/Oxnard area - I wouldn't stay anywhere else now that I know this place! Gorgeous space, great neighborhood, steps from the beach, and Kerri is kind and attentive to her guests. Highly, highly recommend!!

  • We had a fantastic time at the "glad house". The place was exactly as described and much more! The kitchen was our gathering spot and had everything and more to make cooking an easy process. The bedrooms were comfortable and roomy excluding the master which is downright massive!! I can honestly say we used every inch of this house from the amazing rooftop terrace to the very nice jacuzzi... We miss our pretty beach house already and will be back soon. And last but not least ...Kerri. She was amazing from the very beginning of this process. Meeting having her take care of our every need we had was awesome as well. She made this trip for our family one to remember! Thank you so much for your hospitality Kerry we will see you again!

  • Hi Kerri,
    We had a fabulous time at your Glad House! It was not very sunny this week but we all agreed that we have plenty of sun in Arcadia! The cool was refreshing and it fostered a really relaxed low key week. Playing with our little grandson, fishing, crafting, games, and our kids are all get cooks! Your kitchen was well used! Chile verde, roast chicken, hamburgers, shishkabob, enchilladas, and chicken parmesan! Fabulous meals! We loved being together! This was a great house for 4 couples snd provided plenty of space if you wanted to get away for some quiet time! The rooftop deck was great too! My kids want to come back next year! We do too!

    August 2013
  • This place is even better than it looks! The rooms are spacious & afford plenty of privacy. The house was immaculate with nice details, but the best part of all was Kerri! She was gracious, welcoming, thoughtful, and so generous! We hope to go back again and again and again! We love the Glad house and we love Kerri!

    August 2013
  • Terrific property and Kerri is the hostess with the mostest. Will be going back - hopefully soon. Very nice home, huge master BD and great sun deck and spa with a short walk to the beach. This is why we Love California.

    Thanks Kerri...

Welcome to the 'Glad House!" Our house is called the Glad House because you are always GLAD to get there. Our house was named that long before we bought it according to our neighbors. We kept the name because of the wonderful vibe it has -- so restful and calm. Many people say they have never slept better than in our house! About us: we love the outdoors--surfing, hiking, biking, good food and wine. We travel for our work in the fashion industry, so our greatest luxury is to stay home and enjoy the beautiful place we have created. We love to entertain friends, listen to music and enjoy all that California has to offer. We know a lot about the area, as we have hiked the local mountains, biked the local trails, enjoyed the local wine trips and know the best surf breaks. We have a concierge for the house, so we can arrange amazing activities for you during your stay. We have done this for years for our friends and family, so we know all of the good stuff! We enjoy entertaining and making sure our guests are blown away by all of the wonderful activities in our area that are only suggested after our own personal test. Our approach to life is very zen and we believe you should appreciate every moment and every important person in your life. Take a moment to breathe, watch the sunset and take a bike ride. Leave your stress behind and enjoy the Glad House.
