About Karen Veloz
My husband and I were born and raised in California with a 10 year stint in Texas. We have 4 children who have loved having this house as part of their childhood and now adulthood. We both went to school in San Diego and feel that the accessibility of the ocean and beaches in Ventura County are similar to those in SD.
Karen Veloz purchased this House in 1994
Why Karen Veloz chose Hollywood Beach
We are second generation owners of this wonderful home and have enjoyed many shared memories with our family and friends. We only live a little over an hour away so we can escape up here at a moment's notice. Even though beaches are mainly known for summer, because of the temperant SoCal weather, this home is viable year round.
What makes this House unique
What makes this 2,582 square foot house unique is that every square foot is useful: with the loft it essentially has 5 bedrooms, each sleeping 2 people, 2 separate family room areas, a vaulted main floor that has a real wow factor (the original owner was the architect/builder), and a very usable roof-top deck that has views coming and going. The neighborhood of Hollywood Beach is a handful of streets with a wonderful community feel. And to be one block from the Channel Islands Harbor (with its accompanying restaurants, shops, services,and boat rentals) you feel like you have a little of everything at your fingertips.

House provided ample room for 7 guests and 3 generations for Christmas. Great location for day trips
Comfortable living space with large open kitchen upstairs allowed for multiple people to congregate during meal preps and see what was going on in the living room. Owners were very helpful making suggestions for area sights and also provided a high chair and pack and play. Good location for easy day trips to Santa Barbara or Ojai. Great Oxnard Beach Park for kids. Rooftop sunsets were awesome. Everyone had a great time.
Perfect location, a lovely host and all the details of a great vacation home fulfilled!
My family’s reunion at Karen’s home was absolutely perfect! She made sure that we had everything we needed down to the Thanksgiving decorations! Check in was easy and everything was just as described...extras like bikes, beach towels, toys were there for our use. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook our favorite dishes. Karen was such a pleasure to work with and was quick to answer any questions we had. The home is literally across the street from the beach and was perfect for our large family. Thank you again Karen for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. You helped us create such lovely memories!
amazing home-fabulous vacation
Wow..I dont even know where to start. This home is the epitome of a beach house. Karen left flowers and a lovely card upon arrival. Everything was so easy, from check in to check out. Clear instructions, easy to get in and THE LITTLE THINGS-OMG!! I have rented alot of beach houses in the Ventura area and NONE have compared to this one. Every little thing has been thought out and put in this house. From shampoo and conditioner and make-up remover wipes all the way down to cajun spices and salt and pepper. Aside from buying some groceries for the week, we literally wanted for NOTHING!! Many nights on the rooftop drinking wine and laughing with family. Everyday at the beach with boogie boards and sand toys plus a never ending supply of beach towels. This place is A++ and Karen was a the hostess with the mostess!! Thank you so much, Karen. Top notch vacation- definitely one for the books!!You WON, Karen!! This is the house we will come back to year after year...
A great rental with everything you need!!
We have stayed at Hollywood Beach many times. And though this house is not directly on the beach you can still feel the breeze. But what makes it particularly nice is that it was clean and well equipped not only with the basics but above and beyond with extras such as bicycles, beach toys, beach towels, and a well appointed kitchen with plenty of martini and wine glasses as well as an espresso machine ! The house was quite comfortable, and had plentiful fans, although it was cool enough. The owner, Karen, graciously left us fresh flowers, a lovely note, and some divine chocolates. She is also available at a moments notice, and seems to really care about your comfort. Just having everything we needed and having no issues or needs with the house made our stay that much more pleasant. The extra living room/kitchen area also came in handy. I would definitely stay here again !!
I stayed here with my family and a couple friendsover super bowl weekend. This house was perfect for us. It was very clean great layout and the owners were a pleasure to work with! We were also celebrating my daughters 23rd birthday and Karen left birthday decorations for us.... so sweet! We also had perfect weather so that was a plus! Hope to come back soon!
We have stayed in many VRBO locations and this one tops them all! We were greeted with a card, flowers, and goodies upon arrival. Karen also sent us a text shortly after check-in time to make sure all was well... She was a pleasure to work with. The Beach house was beautiful and looks exactly as shown in the pictures. We were amazed at how well stocked the kitchen was with basic essentials... everything from items to cook/bake with to foil and zip-lock bags. This shows great detail and how much the owners care to help make it a great stay. The location is perfect, right across the street for easy beach access. It is a little bit of a walk through the sand to reach the water but at least we got out exercise in each day. We're already making plans for a return trip next summer.
Hollywood Beach is a community within Oxnard, CA, directly across from Channel Islands Harbor. Even though it is only an hour's drive from Los Angeles, the quiet, almost-empty beaches signal that you have indeed gotten away from it all. A quick 10 minute drive to the Ventura Harbor, gets you to the Island Packers' boats that take you an hour across the ocean to the Channel Islands National Park where there are kayaks to take you into sea caves and around the islands. A 5 minute walk from the house and you have places to rent kayaks (for the harbor), jet skis, or a variety of guided tours on boats (dinner cruise, Tall Ship tours, etc.). There are many restaurants within walking distance of the house and every Sunday from 10am - 2pm there is a Farmer's Market, selling local produce (Oxnard is a top agriculture producer), and delicious food from local vendors.
