Why Jackie Larson chose Channel Islands Harbor

We wanted somewhere that wasn't crowded with tourists and Mandalay Bay is still a 'secret'

What makes this house unique

We feel like we've stepped into another world when we come down here. The views are so relaxing.

Quiet and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Three couples stayed here for 10 days. We appreciated the size of the house. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom. The place is very quiet in the evenings and being on the ocean it cooled off in the evening which was good for sleeping. The house was clean and was well provisioned with dishes, cutlery, paper products, etc. We enjoyed using the kayaks and electric boat. The location is convenient to shopping, restaurants, beaches etc. We enjoyed our visit, and would visit again if we were to return.

February Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a week with seven adults. The location was great for our daily adventures and it was great coming back to this cozy home each evening to relax and get a good night's sleep. It had a fully furnished kitchen and laundry with plenty of supplies. We didn't use the bikes or the water toys provided because of the rainy weather. The owner was very responsive to any of our questions and we would definitely stay here again.
