Oxnard house description

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!

Before reading on please note that has a much better description, photos and is WAY easier to use for viewing and booking. WE HAVE HAD MANY PROBLEMS WITH VRBO, but list here because it is more visable. Just go to and look for THE GLAD HOUSE - OXNARD, CA.

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. A sparkling white quartz counter top and white cabinets, make the kitchen bright with light and filled with good energy.

The beds include memory foam pads, nice linens and cozy duvets. Chairs that fold to extra beds are in every room for children or extra guests. Tasteful decor with original surf or ocean themed art is featured throughout that we enjoyed collecting in our travels or have received as special gifts.

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!

No public transit is around, however we have a car / concierge service which is priced by trip. They can take you anywhere or can arrange amazing adventures for you such as wine tasting, hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing, golf, spas, shopping, site seeing -- whatever you like to do! We can arrange it. A menu of activities will be waiting for you in the house to give you a few ideas.

We are one hour or less from the following fun things to do and our concierge will arrange:
-wine tasting
-Santa Barbara
-Designer outlet mall
-Deep Sea Fishing (ten minutes away)
-Scuba Diving, Kayaking, Sailing (ten mins away)
-Horse back riding
-Golf (5 mins away)
-Mountain biking
-Disneyland (2hours away)
-Big Sur and Carmel - 4 hours
-Catalina, Queen Mary - 2 hours
-Much more, tell is what YOU like to do xxoo

Our house is unique because of the beautiful, peaceful, vibe that everyone reports who have stayed there. Total relaxation, peace and love fills our house. We feel it and know you will too!

The max in the house is 10 - 12. No little ones from
2 - 6 are allowed at any time - no exceptions, sorry! The occupancy is due to noise levels and nearby neighbors. The little kids rule - too many fun things to climb and get into -- we love them but ages 2- 6 are the TERMINATOR years, we know we had them too!
