About the property

Walk to the Beach! - 2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath with Loft + Den

The Palms at Mandalay Shores has 2 Bedrooms and 1.5 baths. Beautifully updated, this beach home is located in the Mandalay Shores neighborhood and offers an ideal location for travelers! Guests can enjoy walks on the beach, nearby golf courses, Channel Islands Harbor & Maritime Museum, Ventura Harbor Village, plus local shops and seafood restaurants. The more adventurous can take the bikes on a ride to the beach, the local farmers' market, or visit the shops at the Marina.

This home offers a tri-level floor plan, vaulted ceilings with gorgeous beams, and many windows--all which make for a very open and airy design. On the third level, the Front bedroom has a unique built-in Queen bed, giving one the feeling of climbing into a tree house. The Back bedroom has a lovely Queen bed where, on a clear day, you can almost see the ocean through the large windows. A den sleeps 2 more with a full-sized futon and a cozy cot, and an inflatable air-mattress stowed away sleeps another 2 people, for a total of 8 guests accommodated at The Palms at Mandalay Shores.

A full bath is shared by the two bedrooms upstairs, and a powder room is conveniently located on the first floor, near the Laundry room. There is a covered carport for your vehicle and plenty of off-street parking.

Activities abound! Take an excursion boat to the Channel Islands National Park, where there are unique species of plants and wildlife, as well as spectacular scuba diving and snorkeling.

Drive 10 min to enjoy the shopping on Main Street in Ventura, or 20 min to the charming & artistic town of Ojai. Don’t forget the scenic 25-mile drive to gorgeous Santa Barbara or a little farther to the Danish town of Solvang!

After a day of exploring, guests can grill steaks on the back patio, play board games, surf the Web via Wi-Fi, take in the sunset, or relax in front of a movie. The open floor plan makes for easy entertaining, and gourmets can cook to their heart’s content in the fully equipped kitchen.

Let The Palms at Mandalay Shores be your place to enjoy the ocean breezes!

About J P

We LOVE the cool ocean breezes of Mandalay Shores in Oxnard. I grew up in Oxnard and Love the area's natural beauty, the easy going nature of the residents here walking their dogs. We love to go running on the uncrowded beaches, while spotting dolphins and whales from the shore. Sports activities, travel, family, dance and our many pets keep us happily busy the rest of the time.

J P purchased this house in 2001

Why J P chose Oxnard

We have always loved the uniqueness of this home, with its huge windows, tons of light, and open floor plan. There are always plenty of things to do in the area if you choose, or you can do nothing at all and still enjoy yourself. The weather is never too hot or too cold. 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 home has many interesting features. Originally, the bedrooms were loft-style, completely open to the rest of the home, including an elevated loft high above the bedrooms. Since then, we have enclosed the bedrooms for privacy, but have kept some features, such as the elevated loft, the very high built-in bed, and the rustic wood features throughout the home. 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.

More and less

  • 3 of 5

We found the owner very nice. However, the house does not have air conditioning which made our stay uncomfortable. Also, the nearby beach is not very pretty. You should also know that the sea is filled with oil that stain clothes. We made the decision to enjoy the beaches of Los Angels despite a long daily commute.

For the rest, the house is well equipped.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback Francois. I'm so glad that you found the home well-equipped . However, I'm so sorry about the heat wave during your stay. It is very uncommon to have air conditioning so close to the beach as it is so rare to have days warmer than 70degrees! Normally all one needs to do is open the west facing windows and allow the ocean breezes to enter... again,I'm so sorry it was uncomfortably warm during your stay. Unfortunately all Southern California beaches have some tar from the oil rigs out at sea that washes ashore. However, the beaches are very uncrowded, vast and peaceful when compared to LA beaches in my opinion.

Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and centrally located to the things we wanted to do. The Channel Islands, The Ventura Botanical Garden, Lake Casitas. It can get a little noisy from the cars out on Harbor.

This stretch of beach is Magical!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to many beaches up and down the California Coast and I must say that there is something absolutely unique and special about this place. You just know from the moment that you arrive that it is unlike no other place. It is extremely clean, uninhabited and magical. I love this place. I cannot wait to go back.

Family vaca

We attended a wedding at Ventura Harbor and it was just a quick 5-7 minute drive. Golf close by and quick access to several beaches. The condo was well equipped for our family!

Fall Break

  • 5 of 5

Janna was amazing - from the welcome basket that was waiting for me, to any help that was required during my stay, Janna was warmly responsive! The Palms at Mandalay Shores was everything that was advertised and more. I had a wonderful time and the home made a great base for exploring nearby Santa Barbara, Solvang and Ojai. Then of course, there were all the walks along the beach, which is what, two blocks from the Palms - absolutely gorgeous! Thank you Janna!
