About Sandra Best
I grew up in California and fell in love with Silver Strand Beach as it is still unspoiled and uncrowded. Everyone who lives in this small community is very mellow and welcoming. Its like Mayberry by the ocean. We remodeled this house without the intention of renting but are happy to share our beach retreat with others.
Sandra Best purchased this House in 2008
Why Sandra Best chose Channel Islands Beach
This beach house is tastefully decorated and has been totally remodeled with travertine and hardwood floors, thick crown molding, curved walls, skylights, granite countertops in bathrooms and kitchen, stainless steel appliances, walk in doorless travertine shower . All three bedrooms and two bathrooms are on the ground floor and the kitchen, living room and 3rd bathroom are on the top floor along with a wrap around deck. All rooms on the top floor have ocean views which is perfect for relaxing or entertaining while only being steps from the beach.
What makes this House unique
The best part of this house is the view of the beach from deck, kitchen and living room as well as being able to walk steps to the wonderfully uncrowded Silverstrand Beach. This house is so far from a public parking lot it is like a private beach just for you. We have very comfortable outdoor furniture for resting outside, listening to the waves and breathing the ocean air.

What a beautiful home!
Had a great time staying in your home. We had a blast staying there. Even though it was cold and we didn’t get to enjoy the beach, the house was fabulous and we enjoyed it very much. We will definitely be back this summer 😊
Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I work hard replenishing and changing the decor, sheets, plates etc to make the house as welcoming and new as possible. I am happy when someone appreciates the house as much as I do. Please come back soon.
Perfect location, great value, loved our stay!
Everything was exactly as advertised and as represented in the pictures of the property. We had a large family group with grandparents, parents, teenagers and kids and had waited until very late in the season to find a rental property for a beach visit. We were SO lucky to get this house. I live in LA, but my family was visiting from out of state, so they really wanted a beach experience, and this house, while not right on the beach itself, is perfectly situated and equipped for a fantastic beach vacation, and much less expensive to rent than houses less than 100 yards away.
My wife hates going to the beach in Southern California. The parking is awful, the beaches are crowded, and you have to drag all your beach stuff through a mile of deep sand to get to a spot by the water. Silver Strand Beach will be our new go-to beach destination. It's clean. It's quiet. Not crowded at all. Renting this house saved us the miserable trek to the water as it's just a straight shot right down the street to the beach, and the water is very close to the beach entrance. Everyone commented how convenient it was to everything. With elderly grandparents with us, this was a big plus. If you're not from CA, and are unfamiliar with the Pacific, please note that the water can be ice cold and the weather cold and overcast for much of the year, save late July and August. We lucked out with nearly perfect beach weather for early June. A little bit cold in the AM, but clear and sunny in the PM.
The house is super well equipped. There wasn't anything we needed that wasn't already there. In fact, we probably could have saved ourselves the trouble of packing so much beach stuff on our own, because in the garage is pretty much everything you need: Boogie boards, bikes, umbrellas, chairs, sand buckets, even kites, much to the delight of my 9 year old son! We even took the kayaks out to the marina just down the street one morning. The teens loved going for bike rides. Next time we come, we will leave most of our stuff at home and save the hassle. The upper deck was a great place to hang out. Everything was spotlessly clean and functioning. As others have noted, make sure not to park too close to the swinging garage door.
A lot of these places have pictures that don't really tell the whole story and it's can be a surprise when you arrive. Not here. It was just what we expected and exactly what we needed. We will definitely come back!
We loved this spot! Perfect for our weekend getaway for a friend’s wedding.
Exactly as described and photographed! So close to the beach. Great location!
Very nice home and close to the beach.
We had a great time with the family from out of state. The house is very close to the beach. We had two concerns. The first one is that we did not see any smoke alarms. And the second is that the master bathroom shower had not been cleaned thoroughly, due to seeing long black hair in it. Otherwise it was a wonderful home.
I am glad you found the house wonderful and close to the beach. There are fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in the house. I am sorry about your shower. I have brought this to the attention of the maid to make sure this is rectified in the future. Overall I am happy your family had a good time.
Loved our stay at Silver Strand Beach
The house and location fit our family and function perfectly. The bedrooms and bathrooms were great. Upstairs kitchen was large and functional. Living room area was small and could use a new couch. But the deck more than made up for any lack of seating inside. View and closeness to the beach was great. We also enjoyed the back patio with fire pit. We did have to fill the propane tank as it was left empty but not a problem. We would highly recommend staying at this property and would use it again ourselves.
Thank you so much for writing such an informative review. I am glad you read the house instructions and were able to use the fire pit by filing it with propane. Thank you for recommending the house. You are welcome back anytime.
Great location and House was clean and well stocked. Very small living room space, but enjoyed the deck space when it was warm enough. We were disappointed not to be able to use the grill as it was extremely dirty and the fire pit was not working.
I am happy you liked the house and the deck space. I am sorry you did not get to enjoy the fire table. The house instruction book says that the fire table and bbq each have a propane tank which needs to be refilled by the guests using them. The fire table is not broken it was only out of propane. It is also the responsibility of the guest using the BbQ to clean the BBQ after use. I am sorry someone did not do this adequately. Glad you liked the house overall.
Silverstrand Beach is a hidden gem in Southern California with beautiful white sand and rolling waves.. The location of my house is ideal as the small public parking lot is far away so you will feel like you have your own private beach. See dolphins, sea lions, sand pipers, pelican's and sandcrabs as you stroll along the beach. Sunset is magical as the sun dips behind the Channel Islands. I have beach cruisers and 5 boogie boards for your use as well as a fenced in backyard. There are many good local restaurants within walking distance to the house or it is a short distance to Channel Islands Harbor where there are many fine restruants on the water with entertainment. Try fish tacos at Sea Fresh. Bike ride to Channel Island"s Harbor on Sunday mornings for a great farmers market where there is live music, good food and you can buy fish right off the boat.. You can rent paddle boards, kayaks, jet skis or book a fishing or Channel Islands excursion from Channel Island Harbor or from Ventura Harbor, which is also close by and is home to Channel Islands National Park, a great place to take kids. They have a tide pool exhibit and kids can become a Junior Park Ranger. So there is plenty to do or you can just listen to the waves and watch the boats go by from the comfort of the outdoor couches on the wrap around deck.
