Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home With Unobstructed Views Of The Ocean And Channel Islands

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.

About Tiffany Caliva & George Talledo

Hi, my name is Tiffany. My husband, George, and I are the owners of The Beach Lodge. We still pinch ourselves every time we open our sliding doors and take in the unobstructed views of the Pacific and the Channel Islands. Hollywood Beach is a magical place, and The Beach Lodge a perfect compliment to escape the everyday grind of work, school, soccer practice, etc. We wanted a place where our kids can be "kids", where they can do the things we did growing up, like ride a bike, go skateboarding, just be outside and enjoy their surroundings...we wanted them to realize that there are activities that don't require electronics. HaHa! For us, we wanted a chance to relax and be a couple, to enjoy each others company as well as our kids. We hope the Beach Lodge provides you with the type of escape you're looking for, just as it's done for us.

Dream house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (4 kids) stayed at the house for four days over spring break. It was the perfect set up for us with bedrooms and space. Boys had a room, girls had a room.

I LOVED the decor and the vibe--bohemian, beachy, but modern. I spent a lot of time admiring rugs and shelves!

My favorite spot was the upstairs deck and dining room table, with the view of the ocean. Had coffee watching the waves in morning, beers at sunset. Very relaxing.

We used the house as a home base while traveling throughout the LA area. Activities were about 1hr away... Universal Studios, friends in Calabasas, Santa Barbara were our day trips. And, coincidentally a family member had navy reserve duty at the base nearby.

The beach itself is wide, sandy, quiet, but very windy the days we were there. Our kids had fun jumping in and out of the waves and weren't bothered by it. However, it was chilly to lay out and watch. All beach things were supplied- towels, chairs, toys, etc.

My one regret would be not exploring more of Oxnard and Ventura, as it has cute harbor area and some restaurants that probably would have been great for us, and there were bikes at the house we could have utilized to cruise around and check out local scene.

We also didn't take day trip to Channel Islands that we had considered, b/c of wind and some parts of the islands being closed off. I think a boat trip/whale watching excursion might have been better than other things we opted to do, which resulted in a lot more time in car... just FYI to those considering the area.

Tiffany was easy to work with, the check-in/out process was smooth, we had no concerns or worries at the house. I highly recommend it. It's truly a fun home to spend time in!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review Carrie! A trip to the Islands is definitely recommended, so hopefully we see you for a return getaway. There's still so much to see in our neighboring sites. We have plans to improve the house even more, so please, please, please come back!

Everything about The Beach Lodge is truly amazing! From the decor to the location, I could not have picked a better place to stay. Moreover, Tiffany is so incredibly nice and helpful. She offered some great suggestions for restaurants and things to do in the area. I am so grateful to her for renting out this property! I am hoping to stay at The Beach Lodge again in the future.

Lovely beach house

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and stayed at the beach lodge for a long weekend on our trip in California. The house is nicely decorated and very well located steps from the beach. We visited Santa Barbara and Ventura and we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere of the beach house. We had a great time. Thanks Tiffany for sharing your house!

What can I say, We absolutely loved staying at this amazing beach getaway. All the little details, games to play, chairs outside on the porch, backyard with sand to put your feet in. This place is an absolute gem! We would absolutely stay here again in a heart beat. Thank you again Tiffany! We will always remember our stay here at the Beach Lodge.

Adorable beach cottage with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

We are local to Ventura County and familiar with Hollywood Beach, so we were pleasantly surprised by this beach cottage and felt at home instantly. Every detail was carefully thought out for the most perfect stay a family could want. The views were amazing and the cozy outdoor furniture was the cherry on top! The floors were squeaky, but totally over looked due to the 5 star experience! This one is a winner!

perfect SoCal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 (2 adults, 5 kids ranging in ages from 15-9), was looking for an authentic way to experience the southern California vibe. We feel so lucky to have found the Beach Lodge in Oxnard! Aside from the little paradise we found the house and Hollywood Beach to be, it was a fantastic jumping off point to explore many areas. We did day trips to the Channel Islands for some sea kayaking, horseback riding in the Santa Barbara area, as well as day trips to West Hollywood, Beverly hills, and Ventura. All were easily accessible from Oxnard so we felt like we could enjoy some low key beach days at the house and see a lot of the surrounding area without spending too much time in the car. The Beach Lodge accommodations were perfect in every way and Tiffany was so helpful and thoughtful checking in on us and offering great suggestions for dining and activities. This area really has so much to offer! It was truly a great week!!
