About this listing
Quiet neighborhood retreat minutes from the ocean, biking and hiking trails, Amgen, Cal Lutheran University, the Reagan library, Malibu, and a quick drive to Santa Barbara. Only one mile from the 101 freeway, close to Camarillo and Oxnard. Here on business? Closing escrow? Visiting a student? Comfort of home awaits.
We have stayed in B&B's all over Europe, and loved it. Such a great way to meet new people, and get to know the community. This room has a full size bed that comfortably suits a single person. In addition, a small writing desk will accommodate your laptop or iPad, and wifi is available. We have just added a beverage/snack station as well, with a kettle and tea/coffee and snacks. Although the house has air conditioning, there is a ceiling fan in the room if you choose to use it.
If you want a personal TV, there is one you can use to access Netflix.
Hardwood floors, large closet with shelves, and window with lots of natural light. Room darkening shades make for better sleep. In the evening, guests are welcome to use the 42" flatscreen TV in the open country kitchen/family room.
Because we live with two quiet dogs and cats, we can provide an air cleaner for those with allergies, or a sensitivity to dust, or animal hair. If you are very sensitive, you might be more comfortable in a controlled, hotel environment.
We try to offer low rates and ask for early notice of cancellation for a full refund. Happy travels!

Interaction with Guests
We look forward to greeting guests and making sure they are comfortable. If you are staying less than a week, we provide a continental breakfast. We eat a plant-based diet, so you will need to let us know if you require cream, butter or milk for your breakfast. We usually have almond or soy milk, and vegan margarine. We ask that you NOT bring meat or fish that needs cooking into the kitchen. If you want to heat up something in the microwave, you are welcome to do that.
We can direct you to local restaurants, retail and grocery stores close by, movie theaters (even bargain ones) and interesting places tourists usually don't see. We have coupons for restaurants, hiking books, and directions to local attractions. We like to maintain a quiet friendly atmosphere meeting your needs.
The best way to see SoCal is by car. There are taxis you can get, and buses in Thousand Oaks. The closest bus stop is a few blocks walk. If you don't have a car, there is an Enterprise rental car service in Thousand Oaks.
Other Things to Note
Hopefully you won't mind being greeted by our furry friends, as they are quiet most of the time otherwise.
We ask for quiet from our guests after 10pm. If you are a night owl, who needs to prowl the house, our home may not a good fit for you.
The neighborhood is quiet, and there is a great park within two blocks of the house, where we walk the dogs, and just get exercise. Going the other direction, there is access to two restaurants, drug store, and Trader Joe's within a mile. Another couple of miles is a library, a bike shop, and Italian food.
The best way to see any of SoCal is by car. If you don't have one, there is an Enterprise rental car service in Thousand Oaks.
If you want a comfortable place to stay, especially if it is for more than just an overnight, you will be much happier here than at any of the local motels. We aim to under promise and over deliver, and welcome any suggestions from our guests to ensure that happens.
We have provided your own kettle with coffee or tea, and snacks in the room, so you are comfortable. Continental Breakfast of bagels, breads, or muffins with an assortment of spreads along with coffee or tea is available from 6:30 to 8:30am for guests staying less than a week.. We usually have fruit or juice as well.
For longer stay guests (a week or more), we discount the room and although we do not provide the Continental breakfast, we do have room for your food needs in the refrigerator and a kitchen cupboard. Please do not bring in meat or fish to cook; if you have something to heat up in the microwave you are welcome to do that.
Our house is drug free; please keep it that way. You may enjoy your beer or wine if you choose.
