“Very nice vacation!”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Great Customer Service! The 2 ladies at the front desk Jennifer and Tina. Very helpful. Thank you! Keep up the good work. The location is nice, clean and quiet neighborhood. Very close to the beach. Rooms are big and clean. Washer and dryer was great to have. Kitchen is clean. Living room furniture are a bit old. Close to shopping centers. All these things made our family vacation great. We had a great time. Thank you!!

Great room very close to a nice beach. The beach was big clean and had a small park. A little hard to find since Google maps didn't quite get me there. The room was big and clean. It had a cozy kitchen with dishes, pots, pans, and utensils. It had a large immaculate bathroom. Room came with a washer/dryer unit and a jacuzzi on the outside deck. The bed was comfortable and clean and I had no problems sleeping. Nice little vacation home for a week, a weekend with your friends, family or just by yourself.

my husband and I and my brother and his wife enjoyed our week together this year. it would have been more helpful if we could have had two full baths instead of one to share! otherwise we had a great time and loved the proximity of the beach - beautiful and quiet!

Room Tip: the east bedroom picked up the noise from the neighboring unit and was very disruptive for sleeping...

Great Service, and such a Gorgeous view of the beach from our room. The surroundings made this trip worth while! Really enjoyed having your own jacuzzi to ourselves. Talked to the Manager, Jennifer, and she was just great. Very helpful, and made me feel in paradise.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view make you feel you're in paradise!

I love the area and the resort was just the best place for me to stay. Close to the beach and everything else I could want. The staff was very helpful and friendly, place very clean and well kept. Will definitely stay here again, looking forward to it.

Room Tip: there isn't a pool but most rooms have a hot tub to enjoy. Never saw a fitness center.

We traveled from Oceanside to Oxnard on Amtrak to join the rest of our family for a mini-getaway. I was pleasantly surprised! I felt like I was transported to the eastern seaboard. The sand dunes and tall grass was something I’d never seen along the west coast. The beach was the largest and most vast beach I've seen in a long time. We live just 4 miles from the beach in the Carlsbad and our beaches didn't compare to the size or cleanliness of Oxnard Shores. Our children range from 3-7 and they loved the public play structure on the beach sand. Our first morning there we witnessed a baby seal being released back into the ocean while my brother-in-law surfed. The resort is 150 steps to the beach sand nestled among amazing multi-million dollar homes. The resort was set back just enough to allow you to disconnect from our busy lives. Just a few blocks away, on the beach, we had a picnic at the best public park. Our spacious accommodations felt like home, with our own Jacuzzi and BBQ grill on our back patio! We can’t wait to go back!

We stayed at this property in March and had an amazing time. The resort itself is small, but the rooms are spacious and have everything you could need. The beach is amazing and right outside the gate- the kids loved the playground on the beach and the huge park down the street. They also had a great time climbing the sand dunes while we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The individual jacuzzis are a nice touch! The resort is in a gorgeous neighborhood and its fun to just walk around and look at the beach houses. We will be back for sure.
