The space

Welcome to our little beach haven! Our place is situated close to the beautiful Mandalay Beach. Our quiet neighborhood is full of beach vacation homes so expect to have a peaceful stay and what feels like true coastal living.

We have two beautifully appointed bedrooms with queen beds in each. Our place is ideal for a couple's weekend or a family get away. We have a full bathroom upstairs and a half bath downstairs. There is also a queen sized futon downstairs, which is really comfy, and can easily facilitate 2 extra adults.

You enter into a small living room with a brick-gas fireplace, perfect for those cozy nights on the coast! The living room is open to the kitchen, which is the most spacious room in the condo! Beautiful Mediterranean tile, fully equipped and a table for 4. Outside the kitchen is a little courtyard with lots of greenery and a BBQ.

Bridging the living room and the kitchen is a high breakfast bar. Pots, pans, plates, silverware and glasses etc... are provided. Tucked away in a closet is a stackable washer/dryer.

The bedrooms and the full bathroom are located upstairs. The main bedroom also has a queen size bed and has a little sliding glass door onto a small balcony overlooking the patio.

Hi Speed WiFi wireless internet. 42 inch Plasma TV with Blu Ray player, Roku, and Netflix. Please note we do not have cable TV.

The house will be professionally cleaned before check-in, and you will be provided with crisp, clean linens & towels upon arrival.

This area will most likely come up on your map as Oxnard, but the local like to refer to this area as Mandalay Beach. This desirable location is still pretty off the radar to most southern Californians and we try to keep it that way!

Enjoy the channel islands harbor, only a bike ride (or short drive) away complete with local fare and seafood. On Sundays the harbor holds the cutest little farmers market. Since you are walking distance from the beach let me tell you it is shockingly empty most of the time for such a beautiful beach.
There is occasionally some decent surf, but we are not too far away from Silverstrand, which is the local favorite. Grocery stores and coffee are only a couple minute's drive away and our local convenience shop is walking distance.
We have plenty of recommendations for places to eat and things to do so please do not hesitate to ask!
There are also tons of great places near by! We are:
13 minutes from Ventura
35 minutes from Ojai
45 minutes from Santa Barbara
and 30 minutes from Malibu

Guest access

Guests will have access to our entire condo.

Interaction with guests

If we are in town we love to pop around and say hi! We are also aware of some guest's need for privacy and space and are happy to have whatever level of interaction the guests are comfortable with.

The neighborhood

I love that I can walk to the beach in a minute and that most of the time it is peaceful and calm.

Getting around

Public transit is not awesome. I would highly suggest having your own car. If possible, bring your bike! You will be glad you did!

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 3PM

We want you to make yourself at home! The whole point is for you to enjoy yourself and your stay. Our neighbors are very cool, but please be aware of your noise level outside after 10 pm.

No smoking anywhere in the house, please!!! Outside on the patio is fine.

Please leave all dirty dishes in the dishwasher, used towels on the upstairs bathroom floor, and all trash in respective bins. If during your stay you need to empty the trash, there are trash and recycling dumpsters out back on Channel Way (The alley street behind the condos).
Starter kit: We will provide you with paper towels, toilet paper, a sponge, dish detergent (under the sink), laundry detergent, and coffee (in the cupboard above the dishwasher). Please provide your own after these are used up.
*We have also included some baby oil and a washcloth for your feet. Our beach is beautiful but does has some tar. Please check your feet before coming in from the beach. The baby oil takes the tar off quickly and easily.

Food: You may use anything you find! Condiments are in the fridge, cooking oils are above the stove, herbs and spices are on the wall and there are some baking supplies in the bottom basket of the storage unit.

We live here, so please treat our things with respect--and enjoy yourself!

We have 3 remotes. The biggest (LG) turns the tv on and controls volume. At the top of the remote is an input button. This should be on HDMI1/DVI in order to work the Roku and HDMI2 to work the DVD player.

HDMI1/DVI: once it's on this setting, you can turn on the Roku with the Roku remote by pressing the home button. This will give you access to Netflix, HuluPlus, Pandora, and more.
HDMI2: The third remote (sharp) will power on the DVD player.

The fire place is gas powered and can be turned on by turning the key and lighting the gas. Be careful not to have it up to high when you first light it. You might lose an eyebrow! :) You can always turn it up higher after it is lit.

Please take a minute to explore the kitchen. Convenient cabinet space is limited and so we had to get creative. We don't have a pantry so I have cleared the top 4 baskets in the case to the right of the back door. To the right of the fridge is a door that houses our washer and dryer. The washing machine is on the bottom and dryer is on the top.

You can park anywhere on Driftwood, just please be aware of which side you are parked on Monday nights! Tuesday is street cleaning day and if your car is on the wrong side you will get a ticket! Each side of the street has a sign designating which Tuesday morning you can park there (one side is 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, other side is 2nd and 4th).

Up the stairs to your left is bedroom #1. This room does not get heat :( We have provided a space heater and extra blankets so you can stay warm. The Queen bed in this room is a little firmer and gets the most natural light of any room in the house. There is storage available in the mirrored closet. **Also, please note that our neighbor has access to the roof above our bedrooms so if you happen to hear footsteps (or a dog), do not be alarmed.

The bedroom straight ahead from the stairs, bedroom #2, does get heat and can be quite toasty (you can adjust the heat downstairs to the left of the bathroom door). The Queen bed in this room has a foam mattress topper for those who prefer a comfier bed. Also, this room has darker curtains and is better for those who are light sensitive. There is closet space on the right side and the left, although the door can get stuck when opening the left side so I suggest just using the right. The dresser is all yours! Fill it up! Lastly, the sliding glass door does open but needs a little muscle to open.

The closest grocery store is Vons on Wooley. Drive down Driftwood to Harbor blvd and head south (right if you're facing away from the beach). Left at the light (Wooley) and Vons will be on your right shortly along with a Coffee Bean, a nail salon, Round Table Pizza, Chase Bank and Fisherman's Catch (one of our favorite spots!) and buttercups frozen yogurt yumminess. If you want to walk somewhere, the Bottle Shop is a convenient store 1/2 mile from our place. Head down Driftwood towards Harbor and take a right on Harbor Service Blvd (right before the main road). half a mile down on your right you will find a bakery, pizza shop, subway and the Bottle Shop where you can get some milk/beer/wine or other "essentials" :) There's also a restaurant there called The Shores, but we've actually never been there, so if you end up trying it, let us know how it is!

Please enjoy your time and let us know if there's anything that will make your stay more enjoyable!

We went for a girls weekend get-away for a little R&R and it was exactly what we were looking for. Breakfasts at home, a short walk to the beach, spa day in town and dining out at night. Then home for popcorn and movie night on Netflix and the DVD. We had a great weekend and may return over the summer!

Amber's place was the complete package. Just a minute from the beach, this is a great place for a little escape from reality. We will definitely be staying again soon sometime this summer!

We (2 adults and 1 4-year-old) had a great time at Amber's place. It was clean and well-equipped and close to the beach. Amber was very responsive to all communications.

A very pleasant stay at Amber's place. The online description is accurate. Only complaint was the soft sagging mattress on double bed

Response from Amber:
Hi Jonathan! Thank you for bringing the mattress to my attention. I believe you are referring to the mattress topper because the mattress under it is quite firm. I will check it out and see if might need to be replaced. For future reference, hosts love to know what we might be able to do to make your stay more enjoyable. If you had mentioned it, we might have been able to switch out the topper or take it off completely so you could have had a better night sleep! I appreciate the feedback and thank you for being a terrific guest!

Amber quickly responded to all my questions. She was very accommodating and I was very gratefully when she offered the second bedroom when I told her that my 4 years old son would be with us. I didn't have to request it. This unit is everything we were looking for. Half a block to the beach, 1/4 mile walk to the Rabbi's house and just under 2 miles from the bet kinnesit. There is a park with a big playground about a mile away. My son was kept entertained. I loved that he had a toddler bed to sleep. It didn't take him long to fall asleep because it was familiar to him. We will definitely be requesting to stay at Amber's condo again. We had a perfect weekend getaway.

Me and my husband have traveled and lived all over the world but have recently grown a few roots in southern California. We love the outdoors! Biking, running, hiking, kayaking and rock climbing are some of our favorite things to do. We love good food, wine and Paul brews some delicious beer. If you're interested we'll leave you a bottle. We've recently added to our numbers by having a little girl, which has put a little bit of a damper on our international travel, but we LOVE the idea of living vicariously through you and helping you have an amazing local experience at our southern californian beach condo! Come visit us!
