The whole staff was very welcoming and very friendly! Beach is walking distance, and the service is outstanding! There's always someone there when you need it! An easy/relaxing experience to say the least. Definitely will stay again!

My family and I have stayed here a couple of weekends so far. Great place to stay in! Great service, friendly staff, great location, various shopping plazas and restaurants close by, not to mention just a few steps to the beach! If you live in a noisy city like I do, the beach resort is such a nice vacation getaway.

This a great resort in a perfect location. Beach is a very short walk. This location works as a great base if you are sightseeing L.A., Hollywood, Ventura, Santa Barbara, Solvang or any of the cute quaint towns in this area. The units are large, updated & most important clean. Staff is very friendly & professional. You won't be disappointed.

The unit DOES NOT HAVE air conditioning; so you open the windows and being a street over from the ocean, leaves everything damp. The smoke detectors work really well though - my husband made toast on the first morning and set it off. He made his toast in the half bath on the main floor not for the rest of...

The area is really dirty, the beach is quiet but there's a reason. It was so windy we couldn't even spend longer than 10 minutes down there. There really was nothing to do if you couldn't go to the beach so we left early even though we had paid for two nights. I will never go back. It was a...

I never knew this area existed! What a great alternative to the highly commercial, crowded and expensive areas in Ventura and Santa Barbara. It doesn't have the hills to hike in, but if you're here for the beach it's perfect. The condo we stayed in was a 1 bedroom with a full kitchen, dining area, living room and big bedroom....

Lodging in California is expensive so we felt lucky to find the condo at such an affordable price for so much. It is so close to the beach which is very nice and not crowded.
