About J P

Our family love's Oxnard's beaches! I grew up here and love running on the beach in the mornings with our dogs. I absolutely LOVE providing memorable experiences for others to enjoy this beautiful Channel Islands area.

J P purchased this house in 2002

Why J P chose Oxnard Dunes

Oxnard is an ideal location due to its close proximity to Los Angeles' attractions to the south and Santa Barbara's offerings to the north. There is something here for everyone!

What makes this house unique

The Channel Islands offers uncrowded beaches galore! Visitors can dine at local fresh fish markets, explore antique stores, and shop at local farmers' markets. Santa Barbara is a scenic 25-mile drive north and Los Angeles is a 1-hour drive south.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Delightful spot which worked well for us. Small group here for various trainings. We spent most of our time in Ventura, hanging aournd Cafe Nuevo and Mary's Secret Garden Restaurant.

Perfect locations for my family!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the roomy house and the multiple levels that provided quiet and privacy for those looking for it. The home was supplied with all the amenities that we needed. Janna was gracious and availabilt when we had questions. The short walk to the beach make it very accessible. The kids loved riding the bikes up and own the street; and we felt safe letting the kids play alone in the enclosed backyard. Great locations....close to Santa Barbara and not too far from LA. Would definitely use this location again. Linda

Clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We were very comfortable. Everything we needed was there, and lots more. It was just over a block to the beach so we enjoyed the sunsets and walking to and from the beach. All shopping and restaurants were close. Loved it!

Thanks JP, I hope to return!
