About Daniel Packman

My wife Hollie, two daughters Sydney and Maxine, Lola (our black lab), and I travel a lot between our houses in Portland Or. and Thousand Oaks, Ca. We are both entrepreneurs, Hollie a Communication consultant and I an architectural designer We homeschool our children and consider it a privilege with to have them in our lives all the time. We also co-founded and oversee an outreach to the homeless and those in transition in the Santa Monica and Malibu area for the last 15 years (www.sosmalibu.org). As a family we love adventure and life. Snow skiing almost weekly during the winter between Mt. Hood, Or. and Snow Valley,Utah. Mountain biking in the Santa Monica mountains and Bend, Or. I am an avid marathon runner, trail runner, and hiker. We love food from all parts of the world and get to experience it often when we are in Portland visiting the famous food carts.

Daniel Packman purchased this house in 2004

Why Daniel Packman chose Casa Conejo

Though the neighborhood is an older subdivision of small homes and lots, our ONE ACRE property sits atop of a hill above a cul de sac with stunning views. There are no houses behind us that give total privacy for the outdoor shower. Every afternoon we get breezes from the coast that is only 8 miles away

What makes this house unique

Great entertaining space. The 12' wide bi-folding doors open up to the front patio with features a 12' long table for large gathers, fire pit, bbq. and hammock overlooking the Santa Monica mountains. Equipped with outdoors speakers that can be hook up your laptop or smartphone for music listening.

Quiet, restful with scenic view

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our recent 10-night stay at the Modern Rustic Retreat! My parents came with us and enjoyed the master bedroom and large master bath. All of us were impressed with the great kitchen area and the many seating areas available in the home, both inside and outside! My parents spent most mornings outside reading on the patio. We also had family members come for a birthday party for our three year old granddaughter and we all ate outside at the picnic tables with the lights in the overhead tree on. Lovely setting! I had a question for Daniel during our stay and he responded promptly to my text. Thank you for making your home available to us!

Okay

  • 3 of 5

I stayed at the house for 2 nights to have a girls weekend getaway with two other friends. After reading all the other reviews and the pictures depicting a beautiful space, we booked our stay for this rustic retreat away from home. The house was big and has a lot of potential, however, it was left unkept (dishes left in the dishwasher, cigarettes in the backyard, and pine needles EVERYWHERE, broken chairs in the back patio, all the curtains were pulled down so it was very dark and unwelcoming when we checked in, several spiders and webs inside the house, and random chalk drawings from a previous tenant) so we had to clean when we first arrived so we could relax and enjoy our weekend there. We went to the store to buy food and was looking forward to grilling chicken, however the grill was covered in cobwebs.

It wasn't all bad, we did use the strobe light in the art room and danced to music our first night! And the owner responded to emails promptly. Overall, thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Tara, Thank for your candid and constructive feedback. Sincere apologizes about the condition of the yard that week. Highly unusual! You caught us in the process of changing gardeners and clearly they had not done the work that we had expected (part of their job is to remove cobwebs as well) Regarding the dishes in the dishwasher, every guest is instructed to load and run the dishwasher upon check out. I hope the dishes were indeed clean. Botton line, I really pride myself on a PERFECT house and yard experience. Obviously this was not the case for you. Again, so sorry. Happy to give you and your girlfriends a reduced rate if you would like to give us another chance. Best, Daniel

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I met our grown kids in Thousand Oaks for a family wedding and stayed at this darling rustic home. There was enough room for us all and we loved all the amenities. This house was in a perfect quiet location. It was very relaxing just to sit outside. We loved all the modern updates to this home. Thank you so much for being so accommodating!!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in this beautifully secluded yet conveniently located home. You are hidden by neighbors, surrounded by nature and still only five minutes from Trader Joe's! We woke up every morning and opened all of the large doors to perfect weather and California breeze. We spent our days at the beach, strolling Santa Barbara or visiting friends in Malibu, but honestly, it was hard to leave this modern, yet cozy, home. We have three high schoolers and they were just as happy lounging, hiking the backyard or using the putting green as surfing the coast - it is a perfect place for an adult escape or a family vacation. We rent houses for all of our vacations. We are picky - we love good design and we are clean freaks. This home was a favorite. Thank you, Daniel, for your hospitality and willingness to share.

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Modern Rustic Retreat was the perfect meet up spot for our extended family attending a Batmitzvah in Agoura. My partner, my son and I drove from Montana, my mom drove up from Santa Barbara, and my uncle and aunt drove in from Colorado. Though we only had one brunch in the home, it was a perfect spot to gather and hang out together in between the celebratory events and activities of the weekend. Since most of us are not big city people, it was great to escape to this retreat out of the hustle and bustle of the more urban areas nearby. The home was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed!
