FABULOUS Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was truly a home away from home for me and my Mom for Oct/Nov ('14) and then again for me the first week in December. It was such a wonderful experience, from start to finish, I don't even know where to begin. Ok, I'll start with the fact that Gary & Maxine are FANTASTIC...a dream to do business with. I felt as though I was communicating with dear friends.

The beach house is spacious, it was more than enough room for my needs and yet somehow managed to still feel cozy. The balconies/terraces off of the master bedroom and the living room were delightful to enjoy breakfast, late afternoon coffee/tea, or a glass of wine from, and the view of the ocean and sunsets was FABULOUS. I wish I could post even one of my photos of the magnificent sunsets we were treated to. The beds were SUPER comfortable and please know that I am very picky about my sleep comfort. Even the daybed in the entertainment/rec room downstairs is luxurious and had my mom sleeping like a baby. The kitchen is wonderful and provided plenty of counter space, and was stocked with plenty of dishes, flat wear, pots & pans, spices, etc...The fireplace in the spacious loft-like living room/kitchen area was a real treat.

The neighborhood is wonderful, upscale, safe, and quiet, with great dining options nearby. I HIGHLY recommend Mrs. Olsen's Coffee Shop...I can still smell the divine plate of steak & eggs I had on my last morning there. Bike rentals at the Marina are a short 2 minute drive away and there's plenty to do if your so inclined or you can relax and enjoy watching the surfers, frolicking dogs on the beach, kids at play, people flying kites & remote controlled air get the idea.

The neighborhood has a relaxed, friendly, inviting feel to it that is truly welcoming and wonderful. I hope to be back soon.

Many thanks Gary & Maxine

A Little Peace of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Gary and his lovely wife may have to evict us from their stellar beach townhouse. Believe all the great reviews and know that your dream vacation has been ensured by the love of detail by this couple. Their desire to provide a stress- free get away for all is inexplicably illuminated by their cozy, private and shabby-chic (with elegance) home-away from home. I have enjoyed an entire month here and am looking forward to another month now. The first two weeks was a ‘ladies yearly vacation’ with one friend traveling from as far away as Bermuda. The following two weeks I chose to listen to the needs of my body and mind so as not to burn out and therefore obtained a new perspective on life by devoting time with myself and all the new friends I have made here. The change in routine and the ambience of this house has given me permission to read all the novels and biographies I normally would not slow down enough to enjoy. My 84 year old mother, my 38 year old daughter and my 31 year old son arrived last night from Virginia so that we may enjoy some quality time in a designated stress- free home.

You may be a bit uncomfortable renting a home sight unseen as I was initially. However listen to your “gut” feeling and take the leap as I did. Gary supplies everything needed to ensure a stress-free, relaxing and revitalizing vacation…except the groceries or vouchers for all the wonderful restaurants and wineries nearby….darn! Believe me when I say, “Everything!” Lovely stoneware, stemware, numerous utensils, towels, shampoos, cleaning supplies (don’t worry… can hire Juanita to clean for you at a very reasonable price and she even left a coffee filter in the pot for my next cup of coffee.), books, toys, beach chairs and too many other amenities (and necessities i.e. toilet tissue, paper towels, etc.) have been stored and arranged not only for convenience but for aesthetic purposes. He has gone way beyond the call of duty to ensure all of us feel like a guest in his home. He makes you feel as if you have a ‘butler’ on call but he is never intrusive. (I have only seen butlers on TV but he epitome of one.)

Gary installed glass partitions which flank the front and sides of the two spacious patios facing the ocean. On chilly nights you can relax on a comfy Adirondack chair w/o the cool breezes forcing you inside. But if you wish to miss the magnificent sunsets and stay indoors, he has provided a beautiful fireplace in the dining area which opens into a newly updated

Solid Beach House

  • 3 of 5

The location was perfect and the house was a great size - we all fit comfortably and slept really well. Check-in/out was very easy.

There seemed to be some renovating happening or recently happened because some parts of the house felt unfinished. Also, the toilet in the bathroom on the main floor didn't work (we had a plumber in our group who knew it was a sealing issue) so we knew it would be a hard fix and just decided to use the upstairs bathroom for the weekend. But I didn't hear back after notifying of the issue. There also wasn't hand soap in the upstairs bathroom or the kitchen so we had to buy some. And there was laundry in the dryer when we checked in.

As I said, great location, mostly comfortable stay and fine for what we needed but not a totally seamless experience.

If I could make a minus star I would!!!!!!

A friend and I rented this house for one night (thank God that was all), for a boys getaway. Had our wives come I'm sure we would have left in less than 10 minutes. The photos are deceitful, the house is dinged up inside and out, and although it has a good proximity to the beach it is dysfunctional in its layout and is the most poorly stocked rental I have ever stayed in...and I have rented a lot of houses.

The following is my list of the deficiencies I sent to the owner asking for him to reimburse us for the excessive cleaning fee (obviously a scam) which he never responded.

We arrived to overflowing trash cans with trash on the driveway.

Toilet continuously running in upstairs bath

Little gnats in all the rooms

The most poorly furnished kitchen in any home I've ever rented-only two plates and 1 coffee cup, no spatula etc.

No remote for tv in upstairs bedroom

Not one roll of toilet paper in either bathroom, or paper towels or napkins when we arrived

Windows on balconies not clean

No tv or stereo in main living area

This is a 100% accurate review of this home.

Do not stay here - dirty

  • 1 of 5

We have rented several beach homes in Faria and Oxnard without issue. This home was very dirty, bedding had not been clean food on deck. Boogie boards were all broken, only one beach chair worked. We lasted <1 hour and moved to a hotel where we paid for 2 rooms. Even after sending pics 2x owner refused refund. We will only now rent from those we know. Very poor experience for put of town guests.
