Hilltop estate with views 240 degrees

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Villa, 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, 12 Sleeps

Hilltop, gated 6500 sq. ft. retreat, atop avacado orchards, with views of mountains in two directions and the Channel Islands in the other. Located one hour from Santa Moncia / LA, 45 minutes to Santa Barbara and 30 minutes from Ventura. The house is an east coast type, with big wrap around porch. Many spots ideal for curling up with a book inside or outside. We are not in Westlake Village, but 20-25 minutes away. There was no closer listing for exactly where we are, which is between Ventura and LA. Camarillo/Somis is the actual area. The temperature is generally ten degrees cooler than Westlake and LA due to sea breezes and location with summer days generally 75-80 and cooling to 55 at night.

  • Sleeps 12

Great stay, would highly recommend staying here

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 10 from aged 4 months to 63 years and we stayed here for 2 weeks in August. We had a fantastic time and the house and pool are beautiful, even better than they look in the pictures. The whole house is spacious, clean and comfortable and easily accommodated all of us. The pool was large and the hot tub was our favourite spot. The house is high up with lovely mountain views at any time of the day, we enjoyed watching the sun set most evenings. Hollywood, Los Angeles and beaches were all about 1 hour drive away. David and Annie's communication was excellent from start to finish. We would highly recommend staying here if you want a relaxing holiday with beautiful accommodation in a lovely setting. We had a great time and would stay here again. Thank you David and Annie.

Stunning Hilltop Property

  • 5 of 5
I just want to say thanks to the owners Annie & David for opening their home to us. We rented their home for a week for my daughter's college graduation in the Thousand Oaks area. Being there made the trip for the entire family. It was a great location for a launching site for many day trips in the area. Reagan library, beach, Malibu, Santa Barbara and more! Then to return to this beautiful estate at the end of the day was such a treat. The grounds are incredible and the house is exquiste. There is so much space everyone was able to have some alone time with so many nooks around the house, and then of course gather together and enjoy everyone's company. The pool and hot tub where wonderful, the grounds are beautiful with fresh oranges,lemons, and avocados, and the spacious well-equipped kitchen was perfect for a large group. We felt like we were in Tuscany sitting atop the hillside. Hope we can stay there again!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
David and Anne's home is truly a beautiful and warm place to spend a getaway with friends and family. The house had everything and more that we hoped for when looking for a place. We stayed for a long weekend with a group of friends (5 couples and 1 infant). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - cooking in the gorgeous kitchen, sipping coffee on the porch in the morning, relaxing by the pool and hot tub, walking the hills and taking in the views. We also had an event in nearby Moorpark which made the location of the house ideal.

David was a pleasure to work with from the beginning and ensured that our stay was without any issue. Our only complaint was that we had to leave so soon. We hope to return and enjoy this lovely home once again.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do justice to this amazing property. Those were my thoughts when I walked in the door. It has been almost a year since we were there, and the impression of our visit to David and Anne's home is still imbedded in my mind. After living in Thousand Oaks for 23 years, my family and I recently moved to another state. We needed to come back for my son's weekend wedding and I needed a place to house a lot of family. This was the perfect location and the perfect home. We felt so blessed to find such gracious people like David and Anne, who were willing to share their home with us. The kitchen was very well equipped with many conveniences. The home was clean and very comfortable. Very spacious, intimate and relaxed. My favorite part was the view. Sitting outside watching the sun rise was a great way to start the day.

Thank you, again, David and Anne for letting us stay in your home.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at David and Annie's house was absolutely amazing. The house is clean, inviting and extremely user friendly. We were stunned by it's warmth and beauty yet felt at home the second we walked in the front door. We've stayed in a number of vacation rentals over the years and this was BY FAR the best experience we've ever had. Our family of seven had plenty of room and enjoyed our days at home as much as we did our site seeing adventures. The grounds are immaculate and the pool is awesome!! When we plan our next visit to California, this will be the first place we call. THANK YOU David and Annie!

  • This is our primary home. We have a blended family so sometimes 3-4 nights per week can be made to work creatively in our schedule for a long weekend, etc. We would likely be just using it as a reason for a small getaway of our own if schedules matched. In the summer, week long or longer rentals may be available if matching with our own vacation. A single night or two does not work due to the challenges of moving out and cleaning such a large home before and after.
