"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."

"Loved, loved, LOVED this cozy, cute and comfortable rental home on the beach. This little cottage pleased us in a big way. We traveled to Oxnard to attend our son’s wedding on November 2nd. We rented this home for a week with Grandma. Grandpa, Mom, Dad and 2 adult children, who brought one friend each, for a total of 8 people. It amazed us how much room we had for 8 people in this quaint cottage. The house is laid out well for families and the décor was well thought out, relaxing and fun. It was great to have 2.5 baths and we all LOVED the couch. Most anything extra we wanted was there; beach toys, bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas, board games, large screen TV and stereo system, plenty of blankets, sheets, pillows and towels, more than enough dishes and cookware, 2 coffee makers (Keurig and drip), large fridge, microwave… I could go on and on. We especially enjoyed the hot tub, a definite requirement when we plan on renting a place. We are already planning a return trip next year.
Thanks, Zack for allowing others to enjoy your wonderful place on the beach!"

"Absolutely nothing but good things to say about our stay here. The home was great, the beds were all comfortable, the hot tub on the deck and sunsets were great. The home had everything we needed. The beach is beautiful, nice sand was kept very clean. It is perfect for the kids to play in or for playing beach games, sunbathing, etc. The fishing from shore was pretty good too, especially early morning with a lot of Halibut, Croaker and Smelt caught! The beach was always full of people with dogs, very rarely were they on a leash, but they didn't bother us at all and we didn't see any dog fights at all. 99% of the people were picking up after their dogs which was good to see. However, we had to be careful as not everyone was doing that so there were some occasional landmines from time to time we had to cover over. However, that's the only minor negative and this home is highly recommended for anyone wanting a relaxing beach stay or fishing getaway."

"This beach rental met our family's needs perfectly! Four lovely bedrooms, great bathrooms and a kitchen neatly arranged to maximize all space available. We Loved that it's a very short walk to the beach, and a very low traffic area as well. Houses here are pretty close together, so having courteous neighbors was really nice too. Our two little dogs loved the fenced in yard running all around the house for play. Having a code on the entry doors made keeping track of keys a no brainer-it's great! Keep in mind that like other houses in this area, there is no air conditioning. So opening the windows/sliding doors and utilizing screen doors and fans provided made cooling the house a real cinch. At night you can hear the waves from the ocean and it makes for a splendid nights sleep. Would definately rent this house again!"
