About Mark

Ten years ago we first opened our beachfront vacation villa in Zihuatanejo, Mexico to invited guests and have since traded that paradisical home for our beach house at Silver Strand, California! We love it there ... we think you will too.

Mark purchased this house in 2009

Why Mark chose Silver Strand Beach

I grew up in Oxnard ... my family enjoys 4 generations in Ventura County. Joyce and I currently live in beautiful Northern California but we thoroughly enjoy every vacation at Silver Strand and we are happy to share our special home with vacationing guests from all over the world.

Fantastic Beach House!

Great house! Awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to be able to stay a week at Mark's @ Silver Strand Beach while working at Point Mugu. We loved the entertainment area upstairs along with the outdoor kitchen. Will definitely try to book this house again when I go back to Oxnard in the future.

Phenominal vacation home and owners

  • 5 of 5

In the midst of graduation weekend chaos, this amazing beach haven was indeed more than a home away from home; so much more. We enjoyed ourselves immensely; felt peace and relaxation. Our guests loved the Silverstrand Beach House and two have asked for specific web information so that they may also return at a later date.

The house is equipped far and beyond the average vacation rental. Not only were the kitchen cupboards stocked with many conceivable appliances, dishes, knives, and abundant and quality cookware, but the warmth of the owners' policy, take a little, leave a little (non-perishable ingredients, spices, etc.), was truly inviting and hospitable.

The furniture is very comfortable; the beds allowing for a wonderful night's sleep; the linens quality and plush. I felt as if I were a family member and things were specially prepared for my arrival.

In addition, the communications, both prior to arrival, and the easy to read expectations and how-to instructions left upon the counter, were clear and concise. Everything was clearly communicated.

We thank you so much for sharing your home. It was a weekend to remember.

Owner's Response: Gee Ronda, sure nice to hear from a veteran vacation home renter! However, like I've said before, we have never considered ourselves 'Landlords' and as such, we don't refer to you as our 'renters'. You are 'Guests' in our home. I'm glad you felt you were treated that way! Your Hosts, Mark & Joyce

great stay

  • 5 of 5

This 3 bdrm / 3 bath upper duplex is grand in every way. From the awesome decorations to its meticulously tidy upkeep and great decorations it surpassed our expectations. It has two gas fireplaces which in March gave the living areas a coziness you seldom find. Upstairs was a sky-lighted covered porch open to the sun but protected from the sea breezes. The porch featured a state of the art grill. You were a two minute walk to a mile long wide beach.

I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Dear John, Joyce and I are delighted you had a happy visit to our beach house. We're glad you got to got to enjoy our cozy fireplaces. Alas, they rarely get used due to Silver Strand's year round pleasant weather. No matter the time of year, our home always seems to be about 68 - 74 degrees - without the need of A/C or heat. Your Hosts, Mark & Joyce

Always a pleasure.

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed this home a few times. Being able to do meals and relax with family and then head to the beach is always a pleasure. If the weather is foggy there is plenty to keep us busy indoors. The home is well kept, comfortable and very functional. It is a quiet location with the occasional seals and waves in the distance. Sunsets each evening start the wind down if we've gone out to walk about and sight see. Thank you Mark for opening your home to us. It has blessed us and it is much appreciated.

Another wonderful stay at Marks @ Silverstrand Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This place seems to just get better with each visit. We have stayed here in the past and truly appreciate the care Mark & Joyce take to make you feel right at home. Everything is so clean and fresh, from top to bottom! Having the beautiful beach just up the street is so amazing and it seems like we always have it to ourselves, truly unusual for Southern California. Being close to nice restaurants is a great plus, we also enjoy cooking in the well stocked kitchen for good family time. Whether we are playing pool, barbecuing on the covered patio or reading a book the home feels so comfortable. We look forward to coming back again and again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Owner's Response: Hello Again Russ. I suppose having you as a repeat guest is the highest compliment you could pay to Joyce and I. Actually, I guess you're paying a compliment to our home ... which is rewarding in itself. SilverStrand Beach is quite a unique experience - it's not like LA beaches nor like it's chilly neighbors to the north. Just about right for us. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. See you next time. Mark & Joyce

From its breathtaking shores to its diverse cultural activities, Oxnard beaches are a welcome retreat. Whether kicking off your shoes and running along the shore or swinging your hips during the annual Oxnard Salsa Festival, the city is alive with activities and events.

Just one hour north of Los Angeles, Oxnard stands as the entrance to the Central Coast and represents all that California's pacific playground has to offer.

Perhaps Oxnard's best asset is its seven miles of uncrowded, white sandy beaches that offer surfers and sun lovers a real haven. Oxnard is also a departure point for the Channel Islands National Park and Marine Sanctuary. Only 11 miles offt he coast, this remote park comprised of five of the 8 island archipelago, has been called 'America's Galapagos'.

Less than a mile from our home is the Channel Islands Harbor. Kayaking, jet skis, electric boat rentals, private yacht and sailing charters, sportfishing, Segway rentals, scuba diving and more are all there.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Parasailing, Shelling, Glass Picking, Beach Cruising, Channel Island Excursions

Golf: River Ridge Golf Club. Located 7.3 miles away from our home. Opened in 2008, the fairways are Greg Norman (GNI) hybrid bermuda. Open to the public.
