The Space

Welcome to our little beach haven! Our 2BD/1.5BTH 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.

You enter into a small living room with a brick-gas fireplace, perfect for those cozy nights the coastal nights bring on! 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. Please note there is no microwave. We also have a water ionizer filter because we're water snobs and our area has rather hard water.

The bedrooms and the full bathroom are located upstairs. The first bedroom has a queen futon. Despite the bad rap of the futon, we purchased a higher end one that is pretty comfy and so far have not any complaints! This room comes with a little closet space.

The second 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.

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

  • Amber was super nice and accommodating.

  • This was a great first experience with Airbnb. Amber was a great host! The condo was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. Thank you!

  • We spent a week in this lovely little condo just a quick jaunt from a beautiful ocean beach. The place was aesthetic yet comfortable and very adequate for our needs. The kitchen was fully equipped but compact and we appreciated that it had a purification system for drinking water. The neighborhood was quiet and picturesque and included enclosed alleys with sidewalks adorned with flowers and greenery where we walked in the mornings. Thoughtful touches like a care package and
    information about the area helped to make our stay enjoyable and well worth it.

  • Amber was a great host. Made the experience so easy for a newbie like me.

    The condo is clean and really comfortable. I felt right at home. Such a great deal, would recommend it in a second.

  • This was a perfectly wonderful location, just 1/2 block from the ocean and an uncrowded beach. The building and neighborhood are quiet and seemed friendly and safe. The accommodations were just as described. There is plenty of room for a family to have together-time and private space. Amber's starter kit of a few 'necessities' is very thoughtful. With this being their full time residence, it is impressive they have so little clutter and that they can "clear out" so efficiently for a temporary guest. It was clean, but one should (email hidden)d-in condition, after all, they do live there! Amber was a gracious hostess, timely with information & follow-up. I'm happy to recommend.

  • Our stay at the beach house was perfect. It was better than advertised. Clean, with good facilities. Amber and Paul were charming hosts. We will definitely be back!

  • Our first experience with Airbnb was a huge success thanks to Amber. Her home was very cozy and well stocked with all the necessities. There was plenty of hot water for our family of 4 and the water pressure was great! Not knowing what to expect out of the neighborhood, we were pleasantly surprised. Very quiet, safe and the neighbors were all very friendly. Parking was no problem either. The best part? A 2 minute walk to the beach!! :D
    The communication with Amber was A+. Our time in Oxnard was so fabulous that we are considering retiring in the area.
    We had a wonderful time in Amber's home and if ever visiting Oxnard again, I would definitely wish to stay in her home.
    Two thumbs up! :)

  • Our stay at Ambers house was great. The house was very nice, clean and comfortable. We found everything we needed an the conversation with Amber was very easy. She helped us immediately, when we had a question.

  • We stayed at Amber's house for 5 days and we had a really good time there. It's perfectly located next to the beautiful beach (1 min walk). Everything was clean and quiet. The contact to Amber was easy and she gave us a lot of helpful information about Oxnard and St. Barbara.
    I would definitely stay at Ambers house again!

  • the home is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. The first night we got there we could see the beach but we could hear the waves from the front door. It was very homey and Amber was extremely helpful when ever we needed something. I definitely recommend this location to anyone interested in the area.

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!
