I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was spotless.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The home at 117 Ventura was perfect. Exactly as presented online. Super clean, well appointed, and totally comfy. Loved every minute of our stay. We had super nice neighbors and a place to park three vehicles (although we didn't not need the extra spaces.)
We had planned to do some day trips, but ended up seldom leaving the beach. I can't say enough great things about 117 Ventura. My husband and I will definitely be back."

"We had 11 guests for our week at Silverstrand. The 6 bedroom layout worked well for us... we rented both the first floor "lock-out" 2BR/1BA unit and the top two floor 4BR/2BA.
The top floor is a nearly fully enclosed loft space with a large queen bedroom and a smaller 2-twin area with a bath separating the two sleeping areas. Up top is also a good sized, ocean-facing deck with picnic table.
The main floor of the upper unit has 2BR/1BA, larger living/dining space and open kitchen with small ocean-facing deck, stairs to beach and a larger street-facing deck with two picnic tables.
The first floor lock-out unit has 2BR/1BA and a roomy living-dining-kitchen space with a small ocean-side patio. The view from inside and patio of the first floor unit is limited by sand dunes, but also private for the same reason.
We easily parked 3 vehicles in front of the garage.
The design and accommodations are not as glamorous or as glitzy as some other rentals but the place has a beach house vibe that we all found to be charming, and comfortable. The owners have a decorative wooden plaque at the foyer stating "Keep it Simple" and our whole stay was made better by their approach.
We all enjoyed the beachfront location from early morning coffee on the deck, to runs and walks, to wine sipping during just glorious sunsets over the ocean and beaches. The weather during our 1st week of May rental was cool, foggy mornings, and breezy days.... in other words, just perfect. The beach was just about deserted except for a few jogger/walkers, horizon-gazers, and fishermen.
The Silverstrand location worked well for us. We were celebrating a graduation at Pepperdine University at Malibu and made that 35 minute drive along the PCH a few times and 45 minutes to the Getty Villa and about an hour to Santa Monica. I drove to LAX 3 times during the week - allow about 2 hours for that drive in case of traffic - all three times we made it in about 90 minutes each way. We also spent some time in Ventura (try Brophy Bros. for fish & chips and Steven's Market and Grill for excellent Greek on Main St., Ventura) a 10 minute drive. And Santa Barbara, a 35 minute drive.
For those without cars there are a few dining places within a walk. The house had many beach chairs, beach towels, bath towels, and good quality cookware.
We had a nice time helped greatly by having a good place to stay, responsive owners and Realtor."

"We had the best week at your lovely home. We are hoping to make it a family tradition for spring break and book every year! We loved it so much that we are trying to see when we can get back before the end of summer!! Our kids enjoyed the toys and we all enjoyed the game room. The sunsets were absolutely stunning and the beach is clean and very safe. The locals were also very friendly and we felt right at home.
We were lucky enough to see whales and dolphins as we watched from the hot tub one afternoon!
Thanks again for creating such a beautiful space!"

"What a lovely, well setup , beautifully decorated home. Short walk to the gorgeous Silver strand beach. Had fun watching dolphins frolic off shore while looking for beach glass , starfish and enjoying the sand between my toes. Biking around the area is a big plus, too. Sitting out on the back deck enjoying a nice meal or a good book is beyond terrific. I would recommend this beach house to anyone who loves the beach and ocean. If you don't have a great time it is your own fault!"
