About the property

Come kick back and relax at our beach getaway lovingly named 'Chateau Relaxo'. We are Located just steps from the sand in the laid-back beach community of Silver Strand Beach, California.

Wake up each morning to a beautiful sunrise from any of our decks, then walk just across the street and put your toes in the sand while you check the surf.

Our home has a magnificent open floor plan and many fabulous amenities. The property has three large bedrooms; the master bedroom has a king bed with an in-suite bathroom and a fabulous glass enclosed shower with 3 shower heads. The second bedroom or 'San Lucia' room will make you feel like you're on a Caribbean island and has both a queen and twin bed, with an in-suite bathroom and glass enclosed steam shower. The third bedroom, called the 'Crew's Quarters', has a full bed and bunk bed and also includes another in-suite bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The fourth room is called the greenroom and has a day bed.

'Chateau Relaxo' features two large, luxurious decks with fabulous views. The front, beach facing deck, is situated just off the kitchen and has a table and lounge chairs making it perfect for enjoying a meal or morning coffee. On the roof, you will find another large deck complete with palapa roof for shade from the midday sun and a jacuzzi for late night soaking and stargazing. From the roof you can take in gorgeous views of the beach, Channel Islands, and nearby mountains.

If you love cooking, you will be in heaven in both of our kitchens which come fully equipped and ready for use. On the second floor we have a gourmet chef's kitchen fully stocked with all the appliances, utensils and spices you will need to cook up a fancy feast. Amenities include: a 48-inch, 6-burner, 2-oven Viking stove with a built-in griddle; dishwasher, microwave drawer, prep sink and an island to wow your guests from. Downstairs you will find another kitchen and bar along with a 72-inch home theater system, complete with surround sound and plush leather couches to relax on.

The house has all the toys and games needed to entertain the whole family including: boogie boards, stand up paddle (SUP) boards, surf boards, bikes, Roku 2, wireless internet, Blu ray player and board games.

Why spend an extra $1000 to stay on the sand when paradise is just across the street?!

* Must be 25 yrs. old to rent

About Lauren Finan

We have lived on Silver Strand Beach for the last 26 years and have loved every minute of it. The weather is always nice and being so close to the beach makes all the stresses in life just float away. We raised our kids in this house and spent years making it the perfect home for fun and relaxation.

Lauren Finan purchased this house in 1987

Why Lauren Finan chose Silver Strand Beach

This house is full of love and life, and we know that once you arrive you will be so happy that you decided to stay here. Over the years we have hosted many family, friends and travelers. We have spent years making sure this home was an oasis from the stress of the outside world.

What makes this house unique

This house feels like you are stepping into a magazine with all of the attention to detail, decoration, and care that went into every room. Yet at the same time, it feels very liveable and cozy. We know you will love Chateau Relaxo as much as we do. Make sure to check out our suggestions for local restaurants, bars and things to do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were lucky enough to book Chateau Relaxo for a week during the first week of July. We got to celebrate Independence day in this lovely community and it was so much fun and great weather. There were fireworks and live music about every other block! The house itself was beautiful and we really enjoyed how close to the beach we were. The kids spent almost every waking hour at the beach swimming and building sand castles. Another nice feature was the lifeguard tower is right out in front of the house so it made us feel better about the kids in the water.

The adults of our group really loved the roof deck and the jacuzzi. There is a great palapa that has a nice sitting area next to the jacuzzi. The speaker system in the house allowed us to play a bit of music on the roof which I thought was really fancy! The house had a great theme for every room and all of the beds were comfortable. We had a mix of ages in our group from 5- 70 and everyone had a great stay. This was our first trip to Silver Strand Beach and we will definitely be back to stay at Chateau Relaxo.

False advertising!!!

  • 2 of 5

We chose this place because of the promise of a rooftop jacuzzi. But no, after we got there, the owner told us that the jacuzzi was broken. She said that the repairs were not able to be done in time for our stay, but the jacuzzi looked like it had been broken for a long time.

Similarly, the BBQ was broken

The owner offered us a free night. We asked for two (long drive for one night and no days) and never heard from her again. Beware.

Beautiful stay

  • 3 of 5

We loved the home. It was a bot warm with no AC and they could have provided more fans and had screens on the windows to prevent bugs. There is a perfect chefs kitchen and plenty of kitchen ware. We did have a small ant problem. It is so close to the beach and no one is on the beach. We used all the bikes and loved it. The main issue we had wad the Jacuzzi did not work. They sent someone over and he took a gift my son had bought for me and hid upstairs . He said he would be back and never came back and the Jacuzzi nerve worked.

I was very disappointed in that.

They did allow us you have a late check out due to the inconvenience but I rented that house for the Jacuzzi specifically.

I do recommend this house but be sure to bring a fan and make sure the Jacuzzi is operable.

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

VERY spacious home with a peek-a-boo ocean view and easy walk to the beach. The downstairs apartment was perfect for the four teen girls to have their own space. Beautifully remodeled kitchen would be perfect if the dishwasher had been working. (Downstairs fridge was also out of order, and a couple of blinds were broken. These were the reasons for the rating.) We were promptly supplied with dishwashing detergent and made do. (There were 12 of us.) The kids enjoyed the beach toys and the games in the closet. We had a wonderful, relaxing time at Chateau Relaxo.

We did relax

The house is very comfortable for eight people. We were 11 people. The front balcony is wonderful for relaxing and reading a book or two. The beach is truly across the street.

Celebration of Life family trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I lost our daughter Christmas Day 2015. We didn't want to be home for Christmas this year, so we had our other children and our (9) grandchildren all together for Christmas 2016. This was a fantastic home for our group. We were able to be together and celebrate the life of our daughter, sister and Aunt. The home was very comfortable and just steps from the beach. It felt like walking into a well-loved home of a friend. Fun books to read and great knick-knacks to look at. Lots of closet space, two sets of washer and dryer combos. Bikes, surfboards, sand toys and chairs to take to the beach. I could not be happier with the home. We made lovely memories.
