Silver Strand Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bed/3 Bath (sleeps 10-12), Gourmet Chef's Kitchen, + Bar, Living Room Theater

Come kick back and relax at our beach getaway lovingly named 'Chateau Relaxo'. We are Located just steps from the sand in the laid-back beach community of Silver Strand Beach, California.

Wake up each morning to a beautiful sunrise from any of our decks, then walk just across the street and put your toes in the sand while you check the surf.

Our home has a magnificent open floor plan and many fabulous amenities. The property has three large bedrooms; the master bedroom has a king bed with an in-suite bathroom and a fabulous glass enclosed shower with 3 shower heads. The second bedroom or 'San Lucia' room will make you feel like you're on a Caribbean island and has both a full and twin bed, with an in-suite bathroom and glass enclosed steam shower. The third bedroom, called the 'Crew's Quarters', has a full bed and bunk bed and also includes another in-suite bathroom with a shower/tub combo. The fourth room is called the greenroom and has a day bed.

'Chateau Relaxo' features two large, luxurious decks with fabulous views. The front, beach facing deck, is situated just off the kitchen and has a table and lounge chairs making it perfect for enjoying a meal or morning coffee. On the roof, you will find another large deck complete with palapa roof for shade from the midday sun and a jacuzzi for late night soaking and stargazing. From the roof you can take in gorgeous views of the beach, Channel Islands, and nearby mountains.

If you love cooking, you will be in heaven in both of our kitchens which come fully equipped and ready for use. On the second floor we have a gourmet chef's kitchen fully stocked with all the appliances, utensils and spices you will need to cook up a fancy feast. Amenities include: a 48-inch, 6-burner, 2-oven Viking stove with a built-in griddle; dishwasher, microwave drawer, prep sink and an island to wow your guests from. Downstairs you will find another kitchen and bar along with a 72-inch home theater system, complete with surround sound and plush leather couches to relax on.

The house has all the toys and games needed to entertain the whole family including: boogie boards, stand up paddle (SUP) boards, surf boards, bikes, Roku 2, wireless internet, Blu ray player and board games.

Why spend an extra $1000 to stay on the sand when paradise is just across the street?!

* Must be 25 yrs. old to rent

About Lauren Finan

We have lived on Silver Strand Beach for the last 26 years and have loved every minute of it. The weather is always nice and being so close to the beach makes all the stresses in life just float away. We raised our kids in this house and spent years making it the perfect home for fun and relaxation.

Lauren Finan purchased this house in 1987

Why Lauren Finan chose Oxnard

This house is full of love and life, and we know that once you arrive you will be so happy that you decided to stay here. Over the years we have hosted many family, friends and travelers. We have spent years making sure this home was an oasis from the stress of the outside world.

What makes this house unique

This house feels like you are stepping into a magazine with all of the attention to detail, decoration, and care that went into every room. Yet at the same time, it feels very liveable and cozy. We know you will love Chateau Relaxo as much as we do. Make sure to check out our suggestions for local restaurants, bars and things to do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I were lucky enough to book Chateau Relaxo for a week during the first week of July. We got to celebrate Independence day in this lovely community and it was so much fun and great weather. There were fireworks and live music about every other block! The house itself was beautiful and we really enjoyed how close to the beach we were. The kids spent almost every waking hour at the beach swimming and building sand castles. Another nice feature was the lifeguard tower is right out in front of the house so it made us feel better about the kids in the water.

The adults of our group really loved the roof deck and the jacuzzi. There is a great palapa that has a nice sitting area next to the jacuzzi. The speaker system in the house allowed us to play a bit of music on the roof which I thought was really fancy! The house had a great theme for every room and all of the beds were comfortable. We had a mix of ages in our group from 5- 70 and everyone had a great stay. This was our first trip to Silver Strand Beach and we will definitely be back to stay at Chateau Relaxo.

Comfortable, clean and well suited for vacations and group get togethers.

  • 5 of 5

My family of four plus my wives brother and his family plus her sister joined us for this adventure. The house is very well set up with a great kitchen/living area that brings everyone together to cook and visit. The beds are all comfortable and the beach toys are lots of fun for the kids. We will definitely come back to this quiet little beach town and stay here again. Lauren was very accommodating for us and made our trip that much better. Be sure to figure out and use the pizza oven. It might take a couple of attempts, but the end result is well worth it!

Great Family House with Awesome Kitchen!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 2 nights to celebrate my brothers graduation as a family. It was so nice to get the family together in such a nice setting. The awesome kitchen allowed my aunts and I to make an incredible feast and we were able to enjoy it with a view of the ocean. The home was clean, beautifully decorated, great decks and had awesome bathrooms! We spent most of our time on the front deck and top deck to take in the view and enjoy the ocean breeze. House was large enough to accommodate our family comfortably. I wish we could have had more time at the house but home to back in the future sometime.

Quirky house, strange decor, great kitchen, great location, nasty neighbor, needs thorough cleaning.

  • 3 of 5

This house had a very strange floor plan in which one bedroom lead to another, which led up to the roof. So, in order to get to the jacuzzi, you had to go through 2 bedrooms. So, if you want privacy, this is probably not the house for you. On the same level of those 2 bedrooms, was another self contained bedroom with a bathroom which was accessed by that bedroom and also had a door from the hallway. In this bedroom is a television, but it does not have cable and can only get Netflix.

The kitchen, also on the 2nd floor, was amazing with lots of room and things to cook with. My sister is a bit of a chef and enjoyed the stove/oven a great deal. Also on this floor, was a balcony that looked out onto the street and you could actually see the ocean if you looked in between the houses across the street. It was a great place to eat and hang out. There is also a washer/dryer on this floor, a small living room, and a small table where 4-6 people could fit and eat comfortably.

The pizza oven, which was down one level, near the entrance of the home, was great, once we figured it out. Our last pizza (after 8 attempts) was perfect. We just didn't get it hot enough...use a LOT of wood!! The pizza amenities were very helpful. The barbecue was also on the first floor, but at the very back (away from the pizza oven and a floor below the kitchen). This was very inconvenient for the person who is stuck back there to barbecue, because it is hard to communicate with the people in the kitchen if you need something.

The bottom floor also had a bathroom (which is smaller and not as impressive as the other 2 bathrooms), a large tv, a bar, a small fridge and freezer, cupboards with cups, glasses, mugs, etc. and another washer/dryer. I don't think the cleaners get to this level because the dishes were all very dusty, and had to be washed if you wanted to use them. Also, the bathroom sink had a nasty mark in the middle of it and no way to plug it (which is scary for a contact wearer). Also, there were remnants of video game "stuff" (guitar and drum set for guitar hero or rock band), a mic, but it didn't have the wii system to play it with. This was very disappointing, especially since they had listed this as part of the house. Also, there were a bunch of towels left in the dryer on this floor.

All in all, the house was generally messy, as if the cleaners gave up part way through. Stuff in the garage also filthy. Beware of the neighbor. She's a witch

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear of your issues I wish you had contacted us during your stay and we would have taken care of everything ASAP! We take great pride in this house and so does our staff! This is the first I am hearing about a mean neighbor I wonder if they are new. Regardless sorry they weren't nice to you!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The house was better than expected and we got in early. We have surfed Silverstrand many times before and it did not disappoint - A great place for winter swells.

The kitchen was awesome and we ate all of our meals at the house. There was plenty of room to stretch out, do our work and relax. It was a great trip with great memories. Thank you château relaxo!

The most amazing vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We went to this house for my friends 50th birthday. There was nothing about the House that didn't blow our minds. From the rooftop Jacuzzi to the steam shower this house felt like luxury. The kitchens are to die for. The decor (with the exception of the slave worker art, scary) was fabulous. It's technically two suites upstairs and downstairs so two family's would be great. The beach was just across a small street and we just couldn't be happier. I will recommend that u open all the windows etc right away. The rooms were kinda warm. But being Oxnard it's probably not like that all year round. All and all, the birthday boy felt like a king and everyone had the best time! We didn't have a party but the neighbors did yell at us a lot, so if ur loud it may not be ideal.

We celebrated my daughter's 16th birthday and had an awesome weekend. The house was great. The kitchen wonderful. The pizza oven the hit of the night. Plenty of room for all the girls to sleep and close to the beach. We got lucky and had the best weather. Thank you very much.
