About Nancy Caldwell

I'm a native Californian and have resided in Ventura County since the 1980s and have been a RE/MAX affiliate since 2002. During my affiliation with RE/MAX, I had the privilege of managing one of the top teams for 10+ years gaining a wealth of knowledge in all aspects of real estate while also acquiring my broker’s license. Understanding my clients needs is my main concern. Purchasing or selling a home is a life-changing decision and I want each of my clients to feel nothing but confident and ecstatic with their decision. I'd be honored if you put your trust in me and allowed me to help you sell your current home or purchase your dream home!

What makes this house unique

This beautiful beach house has been our family vacation home for many years. We recently remodeled the kitchen and both bathrooms, and updated most of the furnishing. The views and access to the beach can't be beat. In fact, we are fortunate enough to have one of the largest beach fronts in the entire Ventura County Costal Area.

Amazing House Directly on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a wonderful week at this lovely house, situated in the cozy beach community of Mussel Shoals. I chose one of the bedrooms facing the beach, and so I was lulled to sleep every night by the sound of crashing waves.

The house has everything you need for a perfect beach vacation, including an outdoor grill and a fire pit, which we took full advantage of. Although naturally the weather was cool during our January stay, it was ideal for collecting shells during long walks on the beach - usually without another person in sight. (Winter beach vacations are so underrated.)

We are seriously tempted to make staying at this house an annual family event.

Everything was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay was truly wonderful. The property owner was super responsive prior to the trip, gave clear/easy directions for entering the property, and everything we could possibly need was supplied in the house! The most amazing part was the breathtaking view.

Truly a wonderful place and a wonderful stay. It's worth every penny :)

After years of planning and construction, the new coastal bike path is now open with access just a few yards away! Bring your bikes and enjoy the beautiful California Coast!

A fun all-day excursion is to take a ferry from Ventura to the Channel Islands National Park on Santa Cruz Island, which can be seen just west of the beach house. Contact http://islandpackers.com for more information.
