About This Listing
My elegant and spacious two bedroom two bath is footsteps from hiking trails with views looking onto the mountains and overlooking the Pacific. With swimming pool, jacuzzi, and barbecue on the patio, breathe in calm 30 mn from iconic Malibu beach.
I have and elegant and spacious condo with spa-like amenities, and a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances. The second bedroom is set up as an office but has a great futon.
Guests have full access to the space including office, copier, wifi, and flat screen Cable TV with French Language programming. Guests must however provide their own computer but may certainly use the speakers currently hooked up to my desktop. Please feel free to take advantage of the barbecue on the patio and the swimming pool and jacuzzi in the common area.
Interaction with Guests
Interaction with guests is minimal. Guests will be provided keys and left alone to enjoy their stay. Keys must be returned prior to leaving.
The neighborhood is peaceful and is graced by afternoon breezes coming up over the mountains rendering this corner of the Conejo Valley about 10 degrees cooler on average than the rest of Thousand Oaks and the surrounding neighborhoods of Westlake, Agoura, and Calabasas. I am right across the street from a larger public swimming pool on the Cal Lutheran campus that offers swimming lessons and is open for lap swimming into the evening. A 15 minute stroll will take you to the top of Mountclef Ridge with spectacular views of the Santa Rosa Valley and the Pacific Ocean. If you're lucky (and I'm often lucky!) you will get to see hawks and owls soaring over the hillsides commencing their evening hunt. And if you're up late enough, you just may hear the yip of coyotes as well.
For those of you who are gluten free, fear not! Whole Foods is just down the street. If French pastry is more to your liking, Trader Joe's is right around the corner. Break the bread or spin the smoothy of your choice before heading off to one of the many wonderful area golf courses, superb shopping centers (Camarillo Outlets are 20mn away!), or numerous cinemas.
Thousand Oaks public transport is located right at the corner of Mountclef Blvd. and Olson Rd.

Dogs are welcome (Unfortunately I'm allergic to cat dander and thus must say no to felines.) and I ask that if you are a smoker, you smoke outside.
We enjoyed staying at John's place very much. It is a spacious, modern, and comfortable apartment. John is a wonderful host who took care of all our needs. He is an intelligent and a very friendly person. I certainly recommend this place if you want to stay in Thousand Oaks.
John was a great host. We were traveling with two small children and it was no problem for him. He even had a bottle of wine and a gallon of milk waiting in the refrigerator for us.
My family & I had a lovely stay at John's home. The kitchen is nicely appointed with small appliances and cookware that made preparing food convenient and pleasurable. The rest of the home was comfortable and inviting. The unit itself is conveniently located near parking which was always available. The price was reasonable. There was a Trader Joe's nearby. John's home lived up to its description of elegant, warm & modern.
John was a wonderful and thoughtful host! The house was incredibly clean with everything that we needed for a lovely stay. The house keys, wireless code, garage opener, parking passes and pool keys were readily accessible for us. The kitchen was set up quite well (with really nice kitchenware) and everything was quite modern and intuitive. There was plenty of space for our stuff and John was generous with things like laundry detergent, paper towels, shampoo & conditioner and cooking staples that you don't always find when staying at Airbnb's.
John's place is also very close to a big shopping center that has Trader Joe's, Rite Aid and even a party shop shops which we found very convenient. We even enjoyed a trip to the jacuzzi and swimming pool which are just a stone's throw from John's condo. We really couldn't have asked for anything more!
The rooms are comfortable and clean.the traffic is (website hidden) is a amazing trip.
