At Christmas you can watch the Christmas light boat parade in the harbor - just 4 blocks from the house. The local restaurant serves a wonderful New Years Eve dinner-just 3 blocks from the house. The kiddy beach is in a quiet cove that is roped off. Main street Ventura is 20 mins. away with fine restaurants and antique stores. Across from the harbor on every Sunday is the Farmers Market with entertainment and wonderful produce and baked goods. There are quiet residential streets next to the beach where you can ride your bikes and feel safe. You can sit on the beach and watch large sailing vessels leave the Point Hueneme Naval base right next to Silver Stand. The weather during the summer is from 75 degrees to 85 degrees and during September & October the tide goes way out and the weather is about the same and very clear. This is a charming and friendly beach community. I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

About the owner: Hi I am Johanne and I own this home with my husband Larry. We are now retired and have decided to rent our place part time for the year of 2014. If all goes well we will open it up for the entire year in 2015. We look forward to speaking with you to see if our home fits your vacation needs. Before you book with us please e-mail me or call me on my cell and I will be glad to answer all your question. I would want to make sure that Rose Cottage is a fit for you and your family. Talk with you soon.
Why the Owner Chose Oxnard: This is a very bright and cheery home. We are far enough from the beach that we are not always sweeping sand and yet close enough to hear the waves at night. We take great pride in providing you with a very clean house with all the comforts of home. We replace all the linens after each vacationer, including the duvet covers and blankets. Our sheets are 700 count sateen wrinkle free cotton on all the beds. All beds and pillows are covered in zipperd plastic covers for your health protection.
There is a lot to do in this neighborhood - quiet walks on the beach, bike rides, boating, fishing, wind surfing, kayaking and more. We will leave you brochures of the events that are happening on the kitchen counter, also address and menus of the local restaurants that are close by.
The kitchen is set up for convenient cooking. All the pots, pans, dishes, bowls, cutlery, and glasses, etc. etc. are here. There is a small cold frame in the patio with potted fresh herbs that you may pick for your meals. Please give them a drink if they look needy. I will leave a contact number in case you require anything during your stay.
The Unique Benefits at this House: What is unique about Rose Cottage is that it will feel like home. We would like for you to think of it as your personal beach cottage that you can reserve for your family next year.
