This 4000 square foot Victorian style home has 100 feet of beach front with panoramic views of the ocean from all three units. There is a wrap around deck fronting the beach with a patio that features a natural gas barbecue and fire pit.

The house is divided into three units that can be rented separately or together. We have 6 bedrooms with 9 private sleeping areas that can accommodate up to 22 people. There are three full kitchens with granite counter tops, seven flat screen TVs with DVD players and Netflix in each unit, five bathrooms (three with jetted tubs), two gas fireplaces, and two electric fireplaces. The A unit is a 1 bedroom that sleeps 4; the B unit is a 2 bedroom that sleeps 10; and the Penthouse(PH) unit is a 3 bedroom that sleeps 8.

The one bedroom unit is on the first floor and has a magnificent view of the beach and ocean from the bedroom, kitchen, and dining area. Reclining leather couches surround the fireplace and large screen TV. The dining table is next to the kitchen island. A queen bed is in the bedroom and a double Murphy bed is in the den area.

The two bedroom is also on the first floor and has a beach and ocean view from the master bedroom which has a queen bed. The second bedroom has a double bunk bed and twin trundle with a roll away twin in the closet. The den has couches around the large screen TV, a queen Murphy bed, a dining table, and a full kitchen.

An oak spiral staircase leads upstairs to the penthouse suite which has panoramic views of the beach and ocean from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. There is a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, informal and formal dining areas, and a large living room with a large screen TV, gas fireplace, and multiple sitting areas. Across from the kitchen is a den with a queen Murphy bed. Between the kitchen and living room, French doors open to the balcony which has seating fronting the ocean and a built in gas barbeque.

The master bedroom suite features a spacious sitting area with a gas fireplace, TV, and a stained glass window. The futon couch flattens into a double bed.

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our family at this lovely beach house. Everyone--from 6 to 70--had a wonderful time. Thanks so much!

Amazing Venue

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay and we love it! 20 women stayed over the weekend and had an amazing time! The second floor is spacious and the kitchen is the favorite place to hang out! It is a pleasure to do business with the owner. He's great and responds quickly to any and all communication. We will definitely come back again!

decent

  • 2 of 5

The over-all stay was pleasant, we enjoyed having the whole family being together. That being said, for the rate paid I do believe the house could use some TLC. The ice maker up stairs didn't work, nor did the toaster or microwave. Some of the handles on doors and cabinetry are loose or would fall off. One of the curtains in the main room fell off and hit my sister in the head when she was sitting on the couch. Also for those unaware, you will be charged excessively per bowl or plate broken, we had one bowl that was cracked while in the dishwasher and It was removed from my deposit. Location is nice, if you are looking to stay in Oxnard. Ill be looking elsewhere next time

Owner's Response: If this guest had a problem with an appliance and had informed us, it would have been dealt with immediately. As I never heard that any of these appliances were not working from this guest or since, I suspect that the GFI in the plug was tripped. This is corrected by simply the press of a button. In actuality, since we have three fully equipped kitchens, if an appliance was not working in one kitchen it could have been replaced with one from another kitchen. We recently had a guest who reported that one of the dishwashers was not working. A new dishwasher was installed the following day. This is how we deal with maintenance issues. The window coverings in the house are of high quality. In any case, if someone pulls down hard on a shade, there is a possibility that it may come off of the wall. After these guests left, we had to replace the brackets on the shade. Upon their departure, housekeeping reported to me that a serving dish was missing. When I confronted this guest, he first denied but then later admitted that his party had broken it. The cost of the dish was approximately $17. I had to have it shipped to maintenance who I then had to pay to bring it to the house. I did not think of a charge of $25 for this item was excessive. He claimed to have seen the item for much less online, but I pointed out to him that he was looking at the regular size bowls and not the serving bowl which had to be replaced. We have maintenance available at Mandalay Beach House 24/7 for anything requiring repair or for any other issues. The phone number of our superintendent is given to all of our guests and is written on our contract.

Executive Board raves over Weekend Retreat accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

I sent my company's Executive Board there for the weekend with their families, and I have heard only rave reviews over the whole experience. They LOVED the sense of privacy, floor to floor, and the large common areas where everyone could gather to meet , socialize, conduct business or relax together. A highlight, especially for the kids and besides the proximity to the beach, was the firepit outside on the deck. Only the smores of Saturday evening were sweeter than the whole experience at the Mandalay Victorian palace in Oxnard!

Great location; house needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this house for ten nights with a large, multi-generational family group, and had a great time. The pros were: great location-right across from the sand; kitchen/family room entertaining area with great views and plenty of room to accommodate us comfortably; the patio with fire pit which was great for evening. The cons: only two of the six bedrooms had adequate ventilation for our hot summer evenings; the house is a little “tired” – it needs some deep cleaning (i.e., the window ledge in the master bedroom) and sprucing up; the windows were so fogged with salt we could barely see the beautiful view of the ocean; and, although other reviewers stated it was easy to reach the caretaker, that was not our experience – he had a voice mail message in Spanish that said his voice mail had not been activated – it took multiple times to reach him about a garden hose that could not be turned off (this in the middle of a serious drought). The owner withheld $150 from our security deposit for a large wicker basket that may or may not have been damaged by us. As I could not say definitely that it was not damaged by one of us, I did not protest. I strongly suggest anyone renting there in the future do a careful inventory of the complete unit(s) and furniture to be sure you are not charged for someone else’s carelessness.

Owner's Response: In her comment, our guest states that she had a great time and enjoyed being right on the sand. Her main complaint was that the house was a little "tired" citing the fact that a windowsill was dirty as well as some of the windows. She also was not happy with the ventilation in the bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have windows and most have ceiling fans. The weather is very comfortable at our beach, and evening temperatures are rarely above 70 F. In maintaining the beach house, we go to great lengths to ensure that the house is not in fact tired. We have a maintenance man that is available at all times for emergencies and other issues. In addition, the windows are cleaned weekly but still get dirty due to our close proximity to the ocean. Our maintenance department reports after each cleaning on any damaged or missing items. These must be replaced or repaired in order to keep the property fresh. Since our complete remodel of the house two years ago, feedback from our guests has been very positive. In fact we have many groups that return every year.

This Mandalay Beach Estate is located in a residential area with ample street parking just minutes from beach parks, shopping areas, and restaurants. A beach park steps from the house has a volleyball court, basketball court, and swings/slides.

We are located between Ventura Harbor and Oxnard's Channel Islands Harbor. Nearby is downtown Oxnard and Ventura. All of these areas feature quaint shops and a variety of dining experiences.

Boat excursions are available in the harbor and to the Channel Islands National Park for whale watching, sight seeing, and fishing. Other water activities include surfing,kayaking,and scuba diving. The nearby dunes and park make for a wonderful biking and hiking experience. The Camarillo Factory Outlets are only minutes away off of the 101 freeway.
