About the property

3,300 Sq. Ft. 4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom-30 Seconds To The Sand. Mountain/dunes View

SECONDS TO THE SAND! SPACIOUS LUXURIOUS BEACH HOME is GORGEOUS! Read our perfect 5 Star reviews! Our Mandalay Shores Beach house is located in the beautiful community of Mandalay Beach. Ours is a unique and peaceful ocean community. The large sandy beach is 350 steps out of the front door, where you can surf, boogie board & enjoy long walks on the beach-it's NEVER crowded so it is like you have your own private beach YEAR-ROUND! This house is great for families with children of all ages. There is plenty to do for everyone & lots of space to spread out. The private backyard, leads right out to the private walkway/entrance to the beach, which is also lit at night for a safe & romantic nighttime walk to the ocean. In both the lower patio and upper decks, there are chaise lounges for sunning and tables for all your outdoor meals.

Just one block from the house, you can walk to the large community park with a wonderful Pirate themed Park for the kids. This huge play center is sure to keep the kids busy and is right by Neptune Park, which is 2 blocks the other direction & is a great little park right on the sandy beach. There are swings, slide, basketball court and volleyball nets too! Walk to a variety of nearby restaurants. There are miles of bicycle paths for fun family friendly bicycle rides. Don't forget the Harbor Island Marina which is also within walking distance which offers day trips to the Channel Islands, Whale Watching, Kayaking, Duffy Boat Rentals, Fishing Excursions, and so much more! Great shopping is near by too! There are so many great new shopping centers with movie theaters, and a variety of restaurants walking and driving distance from the house. If shopping is your thing, then the popular Camarillo outlets with Designer discounts, or the ever popular antique and thrift shops on Main Street in downtown Ventura, will keep you busy all day long!

Our beach has a reputation for being a very peaceful beach side community with incredible beachfront mansions. 'The Amalfi' is on the unique street which ends right at the sand and provides 'extra' parking if you decide to drive up to sand instead of using your 'private beach walkway access, from the house. Our house offers a 2 minute ocean access without the high rental prices of the ocean front super mansions in the area. The beach and dunes are usually totally empty making it feel like your own private beach.

HUGE REMODELED House: 4 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 4 Bathrooms, 3 fireplaces!

Ours is a 3,300 square foot, 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath, 3 Fireplace stunning beach house which is @ 350 steps to the sand! We also have Mountain & Sand dune views too!

This room boasts two comfortable twin beds w/ new comfort mattresses (or can be converted to a King) & a new 40 inch flat screen television! It is what vacationing right by the beach is all about, when you can wake up & step out of bed to be welcomed by the fresh, beautiful breezes of the ocean air right at the feet of your bed.

BEDROOM #2: Next to the "Sea Room," is the pretty "Mermaid Room." Light, bright yellows & soft pink tones, will remind you of the sand, the beach & immediately put you, as the vacationer, in a low-stress momentum.

BATHROOMS #3 & #4: The upstairs has two gorgeous bathrooms with showers encased with floor to ceiling travertine stone and trim, which creates an ambiance of a natural, calming beach home retreat.

So, you are sure to feel pampered & living in quality while on vacation. Nothing has been compromised!

MASTER BEDROOM EN SUITE #3: As you make your way into the HUGE "Master Suite," called the "Atlantis Suite," you will immediately remark about how spacious & comfortable the room is & LOVE that you have your own fireplace to relax by or to keep you warm on chilly nights after your day at the beach, shopping for antiques off at main street in downtown Ventura or just because it feels so nice after being by the water all day. The En-Suite Master bathroom is simply amazing! It took THREE SLABS of floor to ceiling honed travertine, to cover the shower with custom mosaic flooring & a honed travertine slab for the bathtub area. The bathroom is light, bright & accented with a custom stained glass window. There are double vanities, a large bathtub, separate shower & private toilet room.

About Heather and Armen Moloian

My name is Heather and my husband and I own this beautiful beach house. I am a part-time College Professor, but my passion for design, aesthetics and travel fuels my creative passion for inspiring others to live in the moment and to create a fabulous future. We live in Ventura County and we take pride in "The Amalfi" property. No expense has been spared to create an oasis for your vacation retreat and experience. As owners we will greet you and personally deliver your keys and garage door opener to you. We have been property owners and managers for over 28 years, so we bring to you our experience and the utmost attention to every detail of your visit with us at "The Amalfi."

Heather and Armen Moloian purchased this house in 2013

Why Heather and Armen Moloian chose Oxnard

This new remodeled luxurious beach home is one of a kind in this area. At "The Amalfi," you will receive amazing value: The exact same luxury of the ocean front Mansions (18 houses from the sand) at a fraction of the cost and you do not have to compromise or give anything up for a luxury vacation. You are one block from the beach, gorgeous park, outdoor morning yoga classes, beautiful bike and walk-ways and a safe, desirable beach neighborhood. If you like yoga, you can participate in a 9:30 a.m. exercise program either by the ocean at the park or on the sand. What a fabulous experience!

Additionally, Heather has a catering, event/wedding planning and design background and is networked in the Tri-beach city area (Mandalay Shores, Hollywood Beach & Silverstrand) to create an event at any destination in the world for you. Heather is also known as The Blue Ribbon Baker and Chef and in 2010 won the America's next Food TV Star, where her TV pilot was filmed. Her culinary team is top notch and always leaves her clients with a memorable experience and memory. You will see this same attention to detail at "The Amalfi" beach house.

From the moment that you arrive at our new beach house, you will feel special and notice the attention to detail. We call it "Blue Ribbon service!" We will provide you with personal concierge service for ideas on what to do and where to go during your stay. We bought this house because the area is so relaxing, beautiful and the hottest place to vacation for Los Angeles resident who want space, but within an hour of the ocean, mountains, city, town and country and city life. What a hidden gem this house and area are for you!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with 'The Amalfi' because it is actually a spacious home, not a small beach house. The openness and flow of the house, and the spacious kitchen with TWO islands, lends itself to a truly relaxing and refreshing vacation experience. The house you will stay in is a very short walk (one block) to the ocean and in one of the most desirable areas in Ventura and in the beach communities. Mandalay Shores (also known as Oxnard Beach or Oxnard Dunes) is beautiful! In addition, you will get complimentary use of our golf cart, so that you can be on the sand in seconds. Feel the ocean breezes and experience the relaxing beach life as you cruise down the street.

The beach is so quiet and spacious, you literally feel that most everyday of the year, that you are on your OWN private beach. You are close to Malibu, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, the mountains, ocean, and desert. Our home is also larger than many of the beach homes from neighboring communities like Hollywood or Silverstrand Beach. So, there is no down side; only tremendous value and opportunity for a fabulous and memorable vacation experience by renting our beach house.

The residents and vacationers of Mandalay Shores are quiet, respectful and appreciative of their lifestyle and further, you will receive gourmet chocolate in each bedroom, along with other 'high-end' amenities for your appreciation and comfort. There is nothing extra that you need to bring for your vacation! We supply high quality Egyptian cotton towels, hair dryers, DVD's, a fully stocked supply of kitchen equipment and dish towels. Your vacation stay is 'move in ready!'

Our goal, is for 'The Amalfi' to be your preferred choice of a beach house vacation.

From May 26th to May 30th the Amalfi was home to my family. We were 8 adults and four children. We had a marvelous experience at Oxnard Shores and our base at the Amalfi.

Beautiful Weekend in Oxnard

  • 5 of 5

We took a weekend trip to Oxnard to visit some friends for the Strawberry Festival. I picked this house because it was spacious and nicely decorated. Heather was readily available for any questions. We felt very comfortable contacting her (I actually forgot my cell phone and she mailed it back promptly). She really cared about making our stay comfortable. She also was very thorough explaining the house upon our arrival.

The grill on the patio was a cool experience BBQ'ing. You literally just put meat on it and walk away. I found my friend sitting on his phone and asked if was still manning the grill, he was. My girlfriend and I took the golf cart out around the neighborhood in the morning. It was nice to have the beach air in our faces and look at the nice houses. The rooms were immaculate. The master bedrm is huge. The kitchen is fully stocked. I really loved the 2 stove tops (one was on the kitchen island).

The only drawback: technically this is a 3 bdrm. The bunkroom is attached to the master. (it wasn't a problem for us because one person from my group cancelled). That said, you can easily make one of the living spaces downstairs into sleeping accommodations.

Overall, our stay was perfect. I only wish we could've stayed longer.

Thanks Heather!

Owner's Response: Dear Jennett: I am so pleased that you were able to enjoy some of the very popular and interesting activities in the area, such as the annual Strawberry Festival. I am glad that you found our beach home to be spacious and nicely decorated. I am always happy and passionate about helping my guests and for you to know that I am readily available to answer all of your questions. Additionally, I am thrilled that you loved the Traeger Electric smoker grill and the golf cart! The architects of the home designed the fourth bedroom to be privately off of the Master Atlantis Suite, which families love, because children, teenagers or other adults are on the other side of the house and it gives people privacy, yet a close proximity to parents, siblings or friends staying in the Master /suite bedroom. Many thanks again for being perfect guests! See you in the future! Sincerely, Heather Moloian (Owner)

Wonderful Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent several nights at the Amalfi Beach House and it met all of our needs for a family of ten! Heather spent time showing everyone all the details of the house including how to use the golf cart to take the boogie boards and other beach toys to the beach. It was a blast!

The beach is sublime and only a short stroll from the house. There's also a lovely park steps away where some of us took a yoga class. It was great. There are yoga classes at the park almost every day.

The Amalfi Beach House has every amenity you could want. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we were even greeted with fresh strawberries on the counter. The outside space on both levels is large and inviting. We sat outside by the fire pit, cooked on the barbeque, and enjoyed many hours of family conversations. Upstairs we sunned ourselves on the luxurious deck and reclined in the many lounge chairs.

If you're looking for a place to relax with friends and family this is the place! Heather cared deeply about our comfort and we are grateful for the opportunity to stay in this lovely home. You will be too!

Hopefully, you will be back in the future and I will surely have more freshly picked, organic, locally sourced strawberries for you! Best regards, Heather and Armen Moloian

Heavenly Haven!!

  • 5 of 5

The moment we arrived we knew this home would be our Heavenly Haven. Heather, the owner, greeted us and was very gracious and made us feel so welcomed and very much at home!

Every room was decorated so beautifully, and yet still made us feel cozy and comfy. The Moroccan room was my favorite and so nice to sit and visit in there with the fireplace going. The beds were extremely comfortable, which you don't always find, and decorated in such a cute way. The master bedroom was huge and gorgeous and even had a fireplace. The kitchen was fantastic and had everything we needed. We had lots of fun on the rooftop balcony, laying out on the comfortable lounge chairs, eating, enjoying the sun and view.

Of course I loved walking along the private walkway leading right to the beach. They have everything at the home you need for a fun day at the beach, including a golf cart to load everything on and drive just over a block, and park right next to the sand. Beach chairs and toys are readily available. Another fun thing are bicycles for the family to use, and and after a fun ride, come back to enjoy a great BBQ in the backyard and end with sitting around the fire pit.

We had the BEST time at the Amalfi Beach Home. I would give it a 10 star rating if that was an option!! Can't wait to go back again!!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at The Amalfi in May 2016. We chose to celebrate here for many reasons...the cleanliness of the home, the amenities and most importantly, the beach. We really didn't have to bring much of anything aside from clothes. We made our traditional stop at the grocery store on our way in to grab a few food items and drink. Very convenient. There's no better place to get away from all the stress of daily life. We sincerely love the fact that the beach is always free of large crowds, quiet and extremely clean. The sound of ocean waves and views of marine life are truly relaxing and peaceful. Everything about the property and location is so welcoming and warm. We truly feel at home. Our closest friends and immediate family and children joined us for a memorable and fun day at the beach. The golf cart to/from the beach is a hit for both the adults (we don't have to carry anything) and the children (it's like a ride at Disneyland). This time we took time away from the beach in the late evening and enjoyed the sunset from the back patio. It's so nice to know that all the yard furniture is clean and ready to go. The fire pit worked without any problems and really set the mood as the sun set. The kitchen has every amenity you can think of. The house is very spacious, which works well when you have two little ones running around. Though my wife had to 'work from home' that weekend, I don't think she minded especially since she got to sit and work next to one of a few fireplaces. Many thanks to Heather and Armen. We appreciate all the hard work it takes to keep this beautiful home ready to go at the turn of a key!

Outstanding Beach Resort - A Must Stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. A short walk to the beach and the home is loaded with beach towels, beach chairs and even a golf cart for the short walk/ride to the beach. Very private and quite neighborhood with a fire pit, barbecue and a huge state of the art kitchen.

I will stay again in the future. Heather is the owner and takes great pride in making sure she has prepared everything you need for a super stay. Love all the coffee including whole bean, grinder and a French Press. Heather thought of everything. The Master Suite is beautiful with a warm fireplace and huge flatscreen TV.

This is a great place and you will enjoy your entire stay.

Channel Islands Harbor, which is across the street, has many exciting events going on year round from the Christmas boat parade, to the Whale Festival, the Ventura County Fairgrounds and many, many more exciting events. The annual Oxnard Strawberry Festival in May is very nearby and a free shuttle has a pick up across the street. The community consists of only a few streets between the Harbor and ocean. It is a very relaxed and friendly community. There are public golf courses nearby as well as miniature golf. There is a public dock to launch boats very near by. There are also several play grounds within a 1 minute drive.
