About Allen Kroger

We love to travel, hike and bike in the outdoors. We also love to stay in nicely remodeled homes when we travel. It makes us feel at home and we hope you will feel at home at our Retreat.

Allen Kroger purchased this house in 2000

Why Allen Kroger chose California

We originally purchased this property for storage and rental purposes. But over the years we have come to regard it as our second home. Which is why we decided to create the Retreat. So we can enjoy the tranquil beauty of the property and so other travelers can enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that the Retreat is nestled up against the Santa Monica mountains in a quiet, secluded section of Conejo Valley, But is still just minutes from shopping, dining, hiking and biking. Not to mention that it's only 20 miles from the beach and 45 miles for Santa Barbara or LA.

Quiet, clean getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat was the perfect place for me, my wife and two small children to stay while visiting family in Westlake Village. It was quiet and clean, and the owner was very responsive.

Perfect charming cottage.

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage was perfect for my husband and I. We wanted our own space while visiting our friends in Newbury Park and Simi Valley. This cottage fit the bill. Close to all essential food shopping (Walmart, Ralph's, Albertsons) and most important to me, less than a mile from Starbucks! (Of course, there was a coffee maker at the cottage, but sometimes you need a caramel macchiato!)

It was appointed with all necessities. (Flat screen tv, wifi, cable), full kitchen, bathroom off the bedroom, washer/dryer and outdoor space with use of a Weber gas barbecue.

We loved our two weeks here. I'm sure you will, too!

Fabulous 2 weeks at the Retreat- Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Newbury Park, CA. The Retreat was clean,quiet and comfortable. We were within walking distance to my daughter's home and took trips to Malibu, SanDiego, Ventura and Santa Barbara and the Retreat was conveniently located for us. Allen was marvelous, checking in to see how our stay was going and immediately answering any questions we had, thanks again Allen!!

Cozy, comfortable, and met our expectations.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here, clean, quite and comfortable. The description and pictures were accurate no real surprises. Backyard was nice feature, but was unable to enjoy it as much because it rained during our stay, however we did manage to use the BQ. Would have liked another TV in dinning area as we enjoy cooking and watching TV.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "retreat"

It truly became our home away from home. Very comfortable and cozy :)

The mountain view from the patio was a beautiful way to greet each morning!

We have nothing negative to say about our experience.

We would love to stay there again in the future.
