About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 12)
We've just updated our enchanted property, steeped in both charm & comfort. This 2 story home right on the beach offers direct access to a wide, white stretch of sand and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.
Hollywood Beach is a safe, quiet community of 'locals' & regular renters. There's plenty of room on the sand for family fun, long walks, romantic dinners or star-gazing after some of the best sunsets on the California coast. Our two-story summer house can be your writer's retreat or—with beds for up to 12, plus a few comfy couches—can be your family's favorite year-round get-away.
The warm living room and family room feature cozy fireplaces. The formal dining area & breakfast nook open right onto the deck for beach/ocean views at every meal. Our newly updated kitchen is located just off the family room for spectacular views (& an eye on the kids) while cooking. Hardwood & marble floors, cable TV & Wi-fi throughout. A master suite with ocean-facing balcony on the 2nd floor will let you sleep to the sound and fresh breeze off the Pacific Ocean.
Walking: Only a couple of blocks to Mrs. Olsen's for breakfast or lunch, shops in the Harbor Village, paddle boarding & kayaking, and a local Farmers' Market every Sunday. A short drive to charter boats & tours of the Channel Islands (known as 'the Galapagos of the California Coast').
Activities include kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, sailing, surfing, mountain biking & hiking on the islands, beach cruising our tiny town or along the beach paths, or just sitting by the hotel pool (up the coast a short distance) with a chilled drink in hand.
Once you're here, get great sushi, fish n' chips, pizza or BBQ within 1-2 miles; other restaurants, stores, and amenities of Oxnard & Victoria; shop the outlet malls of Camarillo; enjoy the movies, tacos & sports bars in communities nearby.
Less than an hour: The restaurants & shopping & beaches of Malibu, Santa Monica & Santa Barbara. You can be back in Los Angeles in an hour.

VRBO Bear stayed here:
This winter, the VRBO Bear & family decided to forgo hibernation in favor of the stunning Windy Gables and its incredible beachfront location. All of the family agrees: it was the best decision ever!
Upon entering the property, we were welcomed with a note and a crate of locally grown strawberries left by the owners, Jay & Ceci. Their thoughtful gesture, coupled with the cozy, yet beautiful decor of the house, made my family feel right at home. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals, the rooms were spacious enough to sleep our group of 15, and the views of the California coast from the kitchen, living room, and dining room were absolutely breathtaking.
Santa Barbara is less than an hour away, but Oxnard's beautiful weather (65°F and sunny in December!) and Hollywood Beach makes it hard to leave. It's hard to stick to planned activities when the beach is your back yard. The seemingly private beach allowed my family and I to enjoy a variety of simple, but fun, activities (wave watching, beach volleyball, etc) together. We dined at a local restaurant down the street, Moqueca Brazilian Cuisine, which we highly recommend to anyone who has an appetite for generous portions of traditional Brazilian food.
Windy Gables is the ideal beach getaway for families. The VRBO Bear & family thanks Jay & Ceci for having us in their home, responding to all of our questions in a timely manner, and providing us with an opportunity to share a wonderful experience that will forever be cemented in our memories.

About the owner: Our family has worked in the film industry for generations and our jobs require us to travel a lot. We've seen a lot of great sets in stunning locations around the world, but Hollywood Beach, for us, is our own little sanctuary. We love to bring our kids out for a mini-vacation or long weekend -- they play and explore while we just relax. We like cooking dinner as the sun goes down; the kids play on our wide, safe stretch of beach. We're usually sipping wine on the deck while the sun sets -- and it sure beats round trip flights to Hawaii for the very same views!
Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Beach (Oxnard, CA, USA):
We found this house when looking for a place 'near enough' to LA to enjoy often, but 'far enough' from our busy lives to allow our families to really enjoy 'getting away.' Hollywood Beach is the perfect spot. Imagine our surprise when we found that our great-grandmother's 'little get-away' from the Hollywood scene of the 1920's was this very same beach! (She was an actress & dancer when silent films were transitioning to sound.) Hollywood Beach was the vacation spot of the celebrities from that era. And, while it's now only 45 minutes to LA, Malibu or Santa Barbera, this tiny ocean community is still quiet and remote enough to seem like our own private beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views! The quiet & solitude -- coupled with the many, many activities nearby. The charm of this still very-original property. The wide beach and safe streets. Sea lions in the harbor. Dolphins in the surf. Boat rides to Channel Islands. Sunsets &, did we mention, the views! You'll love it, too.
