Very Disappointed!

Review submitted: July 11, 2013   Date of arrival: June 21, 2013

Do not recommend this place. I have stayed in other beach rentals, but nothing as worn down as this place. We stayed at the Montauk Ln. place, street side. It was nothing like the pictures! The wood cabinets, trim and dinette table were so worn, dry splintery. The veneer was peeled off in places and on the back of doors. Bunks smelled like urine. Towels and sheets old and ratty. No kitchen towels, just a dirty ragged sponge. The refrigerator wouldn't stay closed unless you slammed it. Ice maker not connected, no ice trays. Bird mess all over windows. Stainless steel sinks not cleaned, tub just ok. Toilets and small sinks clean. Manager was helpful and brought us things, but doubt if he fixed anything after we left. We complained so they moved us next door after a few days which was much better, but only fair. Didn't smell. Bird mess all over big window so I again had to go out and clean. Found out they don't connect any of the ice makers. Got new towels, but they were the smallest I have ever seen and thin. Bistro table for 2 was dinette, no chair bottoms, only an uncomfortable misfitting pillow over slats. No beach access, so you have to go out to street. This unit was open to unfinished messy courtyard. This meant anyone could walk up to your window or onto the balconey. Couldn't sleep with door or windows open. Do not recommend it until they gut and remodel. Beautiful view though!

Owners response: Dear Guest,
We regret to hear that your expectations were not met to the fullest and you feel that the pictures are incorrect. We would however like to address some of the items you listed and to inform you that the items have been taken seriously as well as taken care of. The linens were purchased within the last month. They are not 1000 thread count, however they are new new sheets and comforter sets. Upon finding out that the quality of towels did not meet your expectations, new towels were brought to you. I looked at the refrigerator and there was no sign of it not closing. We do not install the ice makers, since a water line breakage would result in a much larger problem, but have ice trays instead. We would recommend to future guests, that picking up a bag of ice while at the store would insure plenty of ice. The dining chairs have been repaired/replaced in all units and the pillows on them make your tush a lil more comfy, we apologize for them not being the same design. As for the missing kitchen towels, they were located in a drawers below the silverware. The units are cleaned upon all checkouts, this includes the stainless sinks. Unfortunately after many uses the stainless is not scuff free. The few spots where the veneer has been chipped on the cabinets will require a kitchen remodel/resurface to have all the doors chip free. If these few cabinet door chips are a concern with any future guest, we will gladly take a few pictures of the cabinet doors and allow you to see them before renting. Lastly, these dang angry birds always know when the windows are clean and seem to aim for them.

Sincerely, Property Management

~ Right On The Beach ~

Review submitted: March 21, 2013   Date of arrival: December 7, 2012

Great accomodations! Our group included six adults. We ran the Santa to the Sea 5k in Oxnard. Very convenient, clean and right on the beach. Kitchen is small but has everything you need to cook. We opted to eat out, as restaurants were in walking distance. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great Time

Review submitted: October 19, 2011   Date of arrival: October 7, 2011

We stayed here as a 16th birthday present for my daughter. We had an amazing time. The house is right on the sand, and convenient to everything. I cannot recommend this house strongly enough. The people are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant. We will definitely stay here again!

Fantastic views

Review submitted: September 16, 2011   Date of arrival: September 6, 2011

The property has fantastic views and the manager met us with a bottle of wine to enjoy during our stay. Family loved being right on the beach. The property was clean and well laid out. Ventura is a cute town where everything you need is close by. The only issue that we had was that there was no place to hose off the sand before going into the property.

Under construction, dangerous and dirty

Review submitted: April 16, 2010   Date of arrival: April 5, 2010

The property exterior is currently under construction with scaffolding, roofing waste / discards, dry rot, wood splinters and construction debris scattered about the grounds.

The advertised fire pit is surrounded by construction debris and is essentially unusable and no place I would let my children roam due to the danger of nails.

The interior of the house was dirty and not well maintained. Broken chairs, bent screens on the windows and tattered curtains seem to be the norm.

The location is as advertised - on the beach with nice views.
