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.

Good Times on Mandalay Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion included four married children, ten grandchildren and great-grandma, and this home fit us perfectly! The place is nicely appointed with furniture and appliances, and features a large kitchen, dining room and family room upstairs that are designed to accommodate gatherings like ours. We enjoy spending time together, without feeling like we are climbing all over each other, and this place spaced us out while bringing us together. Nice combination! Even with 12 adults and 10 children, there are places to escape for a little privacy when desired. And being right on the sand with a great view of the beach is such a bonus! We found the owner to be responsive and helpful, and the property was in good shape and on time for our arrival. We hope to be back soon!

Great family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely family reunion at this beach house this past summer.

The good:

The house is spacious, convenient, and has a great location.

The bad:

There were many items missing that the guest instruction book said should be there ~ like hangars, dishes, silverware, brooms, etc. One of the units had next to nothing but the book said we would be charged for mixing them up / re sorting. Not such a big deal unless you think you are going to be blamed/charged for them.

Owner ended up keeping one fourth of our deposit, claiming we did damage that we did not do. Owner gave the impression that he was on a fishing expedition to keep our deposit, almost as if it was a game to him, including accusing us of having pets (which we did not), and too many people (which we did not) Made ridiculous claims regarding damage, including the lining of the underside of a couch! Would have kept more or all of the deposit if we did not protest vociferously and settle for less.

All in all ~ a nice house in a great location, but buyer beware regarding deposit.

Owner's Response: Once again a critical review from a guest who had a portion of their security deposit withheld. In fact, their entire security deposit could have been forfeited for breaking the terms of our contract. Up to 22 guests are permitted to sleep in the house and up to 26 guests may be at the house at any time without incurring an event fee. Members of this group confided to my housekeeping staff that they had 25 children with them as well as two dogs. Although some of them stayed at a nearby resort, they joined their friends during the day at the house which was verified by reviewing footage from our outdoor security cameras. With so many people and children,it was almost inevitable that there would be damage to the property. Walls had to be repainted, a table re-sanded and stained, furniture repaired, and linen replaced. Pictures of these items were forwarded to the guests when they were informed that $250 of their security deposit would be withheld. I did not hear back from them and so I assumed that they were appreciative that such a small amount was held back to repair so many items. As I told these guests in our earlier correspondence "I am in the business of having happy and satisfied renters and not making people upset. On the other hand, we have certain rules for the house and expect that our rules and property be respected."

Marvelous Mandalay Beach House Experience for Big Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

From July 24th until July 31st, our family of eighteen enjoyed the beautiful, clean, comfortable environment of the Mandalay Beach House. My youngest daughter arrived first with her family of five and texted the rest of us, “Be prepared to be amazed! This place is ridiculously awesome!” And we were amazed! Not only were we right at the beach, but we were able to gather in a lovely, large room with plenty of comfortable seating for family stories and games, cook together or privately as needed, barbeque, roast marshmallows over a fire pit, have privacy in our own areas of the house (babies could have their own quiet bedrooms while adults and teens played games upstairs). If we ever needed assistance, a friendly, very helpful and accessible handyman came to take care of us. The owner was wonderful to work with, and we plan on making this a regular vacation for our family. We absolutely LOVED it!!!

Amazing location, spacious for groups.

  • 5 of 5

For our Family reunion and group of 22 this was an Amazing find. You can enjoy the beach just steps away. There are two great parks for kids with in walking distance and so many awesome activities near by. This was our favorite reunion so far. We rented paddle boards from Momentum Skate Shop and cruised the Harbor. It was so cool at sunset. We found other great beaches near by to teach the kids to surf and cruised up to Santa Barbara for some more great activities. The Drive in Movie, The Santa Barbara Mission, State Street and the Zoo were all great fun.

The house shoes normal wear on the outside from the elements, but is gorgeous on the inside. The cleaning staff and , Casamiro, the caretaker of the unit did an outstanding job. It had just about everything you could want in a rental with a few bonuses thrown in. The Fire Pit, Basketball and Football were nice surprises. The view from the roof each night made it hard to go back inside.

My only hang up ,and it is just my hang up is that the owner or manager is very trusting and does not do a walk through before and after the rental with you. Check out procedures and the Wi-fi instructions written in the red folder would be helpful. We just made sure to clean as much as we would hope for if we were owners.

I give this property a 9.5 out of 10. If they upgraded to Direct TV I would go the whole 10. Thanks again for allowing us to create some wonderful memories in your home.

Owner's Response: I just wanted to add that we have Time Warner Cable including HBO. Housekeeping takes an inventory and notes any missing or broken items following our guests'departure and our new guests' arrival. Missing items are replaced and noted. There is a complete inventory list in each of our three suites.

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.
