Overview

Hollywood Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 12)

Known to locals & historians as The Windy Gables. (Clark Gable is known to have lived here.)

We've just updated our enchanted property, steeped in both charm & comfort. This 2 story home right on the beach offers direct access to a wide, white stretch of sand and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean.

Hollywood Beach is a safe, quiet community of 'locals' & regular renters. There's plenty of room on the sand for family fun, long walks, romantic dinners or star-gazing after some of the best sunsets on the California coast. Our two-story summer house can be your writer's retreat or—with beds for up to 12, plus a few comfy couches—can be your family's favorite year-round get-away.

The warm living room and family room feature cozy fireplaces. The formal dining area & breakfast nook open right onto the deck for beach/ocean views at every meal. Our newly updated kitchen is located just off the family room for spectacular views (& an eye on the kids) while cooking. Hardwood & marble floors, cable TV & Wi-fi throughout. A master suite with ocean-facing balcony on the 2nd floor will let you sleep to the sound and fresh breeze off the Pacific Ocean.

Walking: Only a couple of blocks to Mrs. Olsen's for breakfast or lunch, shops in the Harbor Village, paddle boarding & kayaking, and a local Farmers' Market every Sunday. A short drive to charter boats & tours of the Channel Islands (known as 'the Galapagos of the California Coast').

Activities include kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, sailing, surfing, mountain biking & hiking on the islands, beach cruising our tiny town or along the beach paths, or just sitting by the hotel pool (up the coast a short distance) with a chilled drink in hand.

Once you're here, get great sushi, fish n' chips, pizza or BBQ within 1-2 miles; other restaurants, stores, and amenities of Oxnard & Victoria; shop the outlet malls of Camarillo; enjoy the movies, tacos & sports bars in communities nearby.

Less than an hour: The restaurants & shopping & beaches of Malibu, Santa Monica & Santa Barbara. You can be back in Los Angeles in an hour.

About Manager: Windy Gables beach house

Our family has worked in the film industry for generations and our jobs require us to travel a lot. We've seen a lot of great sets in stunning locations around the world, but Hollywood Beach, for us, is our own little sanctuary.

We love to bring our kids out for a mini-vacation or long weekend -- they play and explore while we just relax. We like cooking dinner as the sun goes down; the kids play on our wide, safe stretch of beach.

We're usually sipping wine on the deck while the sun sets -- and it sure beats round trip flights to Hawaii for the very same views!

Why Manager: Windy Gables beach house chose Oxnard

We found this house when looking for a place 'near enough' to LA to enjoy often, but 'far enough' from our busy lives to allow our families to really enjoy 'getting away.' Hollywood Beach is the perfect spot.

Imagine our surprise when we found that our great-grandmother's 'little get-away' from the Hollywood scene of the 1920's was this very same beach! (She was an actress & dancer when silent films were transitioning to sound.)

Hollywood Beach was the vacation spot of the celebrities from that era. And, while it's now only 45 minutes to LA, Malibu or Santa Barbera, this tiny ocean community is still quiet and remote enough to seem like our own private beach.

What makes this house unique

The views!

The quiet & solitude -- coupled with the many, many activities nearby.

The charm of this still very-original property.

The wide beach and safe streets.

Sea lions in the harbor. Dolphins in the surf. Boat rides to Channel Islands. Sunsets &, did we mention, the views! You'll love it, too.

Charming house

  • 3 of 5

The house is roomy and clean with lots of sleeping options. I've made a pros and cons list.

Pros:

right on the beach!

Nice living room, den, well stocked kitchen

Two nice bedrooms with comfortable beds

Two nice bathrooms

Outdoor shower

Well stocked kitchen

Hollywood Beach cafe is delicious and a block and a half away!

Lifeguards at beach

Lots and lots of towels!

Cons:

half bath is in a closet, hard to get in

Third bedroom is small and one bed looks rather temporary

It's an old house and as these things go some doors don't close all the way etc.

The water is really rough here and you can't surf or boogie board

Not a lot of local places to get ice cream, dinner etc.

Wonderful Week at Windy Gables

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at Windy Gables. The property was very welcoming and relaxing. The ocean view and access amazing! The property owners were in contact to welcome us, check on the storm reports and offer assistance if needed, which we didn't as storms were not as bad as predicted. While we had a day or two of rain, it worked out great as there were no crowds. Folks we met on the beach were very friendly. We enjoyed the local maritime museum and we had great time on an Channel Islands Sportsfishing Whale Watch tour and Toppers pizza has yummy pies. I've already recommended the property to friends and look forward to returning for another vacation in the future.

Family home right on the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice house, homey; needs a little TLC. If you're looking for a place for family games and meals together, this is a great choice. It's not fancy but very comfortable. A wonderful location for peace and quiet right on a beautiful and uncrowded beach. Within walking distance of a marina (weekend Farmer's market while we were there), a yummy restaurant or two and grocery store (nearby area.)

beach house

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and in an excellent location on Hollywood beach. It is quiet, not crowded even in the middle of summer and quite comfortable. The owners offer a nice place with many great amenities including apple TV, cable, TV's in the bedrooms and fans which is greatly appreciated. I would have very much appreciated a gas BBQ instead of charcoal. Also, some of the screens on the doors were ripped and off the track (couldn't put back on). The upstairs bedroom with the two queen beds was warm even with the fan going. Finally, the house wasn't as clean as it could have been which I chalk up to it being on the beach.

My daughters graduation @ Windy Gables

  • 5 of 5

What a great weekend we had @ Windy Gables. Ceci and Jay are great hosts and were available to answer question whenever needed. We had friends who stayed @ other places a few homes down......many folks from the graduation party commented our place was the most homey.
