The Beach Lodge is a newly remodeled 1971 modified A-frame house in Hollywood Beach, a community nestled between Malibu and Santa Barbara. The designer home offers numerous amenities, unobstructed views of the Pacific and Channel Islands, and is steps away from the sand.
The Beach Lodge has a 2 car garage with laundry facilities at street level. The driveway provides 2 additional parking spots...a rare commodity in this beach community.
The sleeping quarters on the second level consist of 3 bedrooms that sleep six and 1 bathroom with a soaking tub. Two of the bedrooms have peek-a-boo views of the ocean and access to their own private balcony.
The third level living quarters features a light-filled open floor plan made up of the kitchen, dining room, living room and second bathroom. The living room sofa has a queen size pull out bed that provides additional sleeping for up to 2 people. A large balcony in the back provides outdoor space for relaxing, while the balcony in the front provides an unobstructed view of the ocean that will leave you speechless. The beach-facing balcony has a built-in table that offers a place for you to enjoy a meal or have your morning coffee, or just relax and get some sun, while taking in the scenic view. The kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, and all necessary dinnerware, silverware, stemware, and cookware are provided.
The backyard provides an additional gathering space, with an outdoor living room to lounge in, a grill for some BBQing, a picnic table to dine on, and a sand area to hang out around and unwind.
If you just want to chill out on the couch or in bed, the Beach Lodge has 3 TVs with AppleTV and 1 smart TV, as well as internet connection with WiFi access. We also have some classic board games in case you need a break from electronics. And if you just want to engross yourself in a book, then we have some of those as well. Ocean breezes usually provide constant coolness to the house, but if not, each of the rooms has it's own remote-controlled fan, and the upstairs living area has 2 of its own ceiling fans.
The Beach Lodge occupies one of the best in-board locations on Ocean Drive, with direct access to a very private beach just a few steps away. Sink your toes in the sand and relax, using the beach chairs, umbrella, sunbathing mats, cooler, and sandcastle kit that we provide. Feeling a little more energetic? Then our paddle balls, boogie boards, or volleyball can help with that. If you want to explore the neighborhood and don't feel like walking, we've got four bikes at your disposal.
Hollywood Beach is a very laid back beach community that's walking and biking distance to a number of local favorite restaurants/cafés like Mrs. Olsen's (voted "One of the Best 59 Breakfast Places in America" by Esquire Magazine), Sea Fresh, Topper's Pizza, and Honey Cup. The Channel Islands Harbor, which is also walking/biking distance, offers rentals for kayaks, paddle boards, jet skis, boats, and specialty bikes. Every Sunday, it is also home to a Farmers Market where you can enjoy music and food, and buy fresh produce and seafood. There are even opportunities to visit 5 of the islands that make up the Channel Islands for some hiking, kayaking, whale watching, and more. If you want to venture outside of our neighborhood, we are in close proximity to Ventura, Carpenteria, Santa Barbara, Malibu, and Santa Monica...other beach communities that have their own unique offerings. For shopping opportunities, the Camarillo Outlet Mall and The Collection provide a large array of shops, restaurants and also movie theaters. Because public parking is very limited, Hollywood Beach offers a feeling of privacy and exclusivity that is rarely seen in beach communities.
