We purchased this home new and will retire here. We love living at Silverstand where many neighbors are dear friends, the weather is fabulous the beach is perfection and the surf is fabulous! Our children and grandchildren have grown up water babies, playing in this surf.

While work has taken us away, we fondly remember the local bars and food, shopping at the Best Farmer's Market, fishing and diving locally. We now open our slice of paradise for you to enjoy and care for in our time of absence, while we dream of coming home to retire.

NILA VENTRESS purchased this house in 1988

Why NILA VENTRESS chose World

As we prepared our home for your visit we thought of our travels and the amenities that give us comfort while away from home. We have provided a clean space for you, crisp all white linens that provide you with freshness. We love the water and all sports in and around the water, so we have provided you with the best information about our water activities, and about our island adventures. We enjoy good food and entertainment, so we have also provided you with the best of our local eaters and bars, and food tours. When the festivals are here that information is also within our welcome binder. Don't miss our Sunday Farmer's Market, it is a delightful taste of our local produce and wears.

What makes this house unique

Our home sits 4 feet higher on a slop up, this offers us a unique viewing advantage at the strand. Our neighbors are great people, this beach has the best surf and beautiful wide white sand beach. The strand is a quirky piece of paradise that you just can't miss.

A wonderful home for all ages!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been vacationing at Silverstrand Beach for 30 years. Our children & now our grandchildren are discovering this magical place and all it’s beauty. We’ve always stayed on Ocean Ave., but as our family grows, we’ve needed to find an affordable larger home, with big family spaces. This home was all that and more! This year we celebrated Christmas & New Year Eve, all in one week! We arrived to find the perfect combination of both. Small Christmas trees & New Years poppers. Nila and her staff even had left some sparkling cider so our grandchildren could celebrate with us! These ‘over the top’ acts of kindness make this rental a home away from home! Here’s a few 5* things to know. Awesome roof decks, multiple boogie bds. well equipped kitchen, dining table that seats 15! High chairs, pack n plays and so much more!! Thank you Nila! We will come again!

Wonderful vacation beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We reserved this beach house for family and friends to come together to celebrate a birthday milestone! We all enjoy the beach/ocean and this house was in the perfect location and large enough to comfortably accommodate 10 people. Besides the 10 people we also had several more people join us for dinner each evening and the large dining room table and living room gave us plenty of room to eat, visit and play games. The driveway in front of the house provided plenty of room for 4 vehicles and there were other parking areas close by when more parking spaces were needed. There is a shed behind the house with a variety of items to use at the beach - beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, etc. which we used often. The outdoor shower made it easy for people to rinse off after time at the beach. The beach was only a short walk away from the house which made it easy to go back and forth as needed.

The owner, Nila, is a wonderful woman to work with and answered my texts/emails quickly and efficiently. She even had a birthday cake waiting for us when we arrived at the house! We all loved our stay and would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Lovely, welcoming home near beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

The home was absolutely perfect for our family time together! We returned home and were ready to immediately turn around and head back!

Loved using the new boogie boards, and appreciated the additional sunshade. The home was very convenient to the Silver Strand Beach, which has now become my favorite beach.

The main living space and table and chairs accommodated everyone! Hours were spent visiting, eating and playing games on the long table. It was perfect. (I recommend bringing a stack of board games and puzzles from home.) Lots of fun movies were watched on various flat screen TVs.

Sleeping arrangements were excellent, from comfortable beds, to couches that easily transitioned to beds. There are lovely spaces throughout the home to find personal quiet time. Kitchen is well appointed, and there was even a high chair for my granddaughter who joined us!

Everything was really lovely, and owner was so attentive to immediately rectify any issues.

Use CAUTION when renting!

  • 2 of 5

This is a comfortable home for relaxing. The city of Oxnard, especially the beach area is quiet, restaurants and shops are not in walking distance. The area is slightly cooler than neighboring beaches (Ventura & Santa Barbara). The most important thing to keep

in mind when renting this home specifically is to request a walk through upon arrival. After renting we were accused of damaging 2 sofas and a dining table. It never occurred to us to check the furnishings for knicks and scratches as the overall condition of the home showed visible wear and tear. Unfortunately the owner does not seem to be in the area and is using a management company for the property. Our group included 2 grown adults and 6 tween/teen girls who entertained themselves in the house with board games and enjoying the upstairs patio. We were honest with the owner in regards to a coffee spill that happened on the king bedroom sheets (not comforter). Although this is not something that would be considered damage at a hotel, it is damage in this VRBO. In hindsight, it would have been a better decision to wash the bedding myself while at the home as I have never had trouble washing coffee out of fabric. Instead I chose to launder all the towels before our departure. I also had to spray and wipe down the kitchen area with ant spray through out our visit as ants were constantly present. Again, I did not contact the owner as we only stayed a week and I generally don’t want to spend my vacation calling in complaints. The owner is most likely aware as the ant spray was was located in the laundry room. The owner did inform me that she has never had to file an insurance claim in the 2 years of renting the home. I would like to convey that I have never been accused of damaging a property in all my years of traveling. Even though we payed for the mandatory insurance to stay at the property, the homeowner is still holding our deposit. Let our experience save you a headache and request a walk through before your stay!

Best Family Vacation EVER

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from June 1 through June 10. The house was nice. We had 5 adults and 8 children (4 teenagers). The bedding was comfortable, ample towels, beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, beach towels, kitchen supplies. There is no AC but surprisingly enough it wasn't needed! There is a cool ocean breeze at all times, and there are NO BUGS! The only complaint that I would have is that you would have to sleep 6 people on couches to sleep 15 people as the property states. Not a big deal, but there isn't really enough bedding for that many people. Luckily 2 of our guests were under 3, and the property had 2 nice pack and play cribs and 2 nice high chairs (both got a ton of use). The area that the house is located is an area of mainly full time residents who were all very friendly. This house truly has everything you need for an amazing vacation. It is a one block easy walk right to the sand, and I HIGHLY recommend taking a whale watching tour to the channel islands. We saw 3 blue whales very up close. We saw many sea lions and dolphins on the beach, and there are constantly surfers to watch. We would walk to the beach early in the morning with our coffee and almost daily see dolphins. One other thing was that we could not get any of the TV's in the house to work, so we signed into our own netflix and hulu accounts in the main living room to watch TV.. could be a big deal if you do not have those, but really, in this beautiful area, you should not be watching TV. We would definitely stay again at this property in a heart beat. The weather was a lot colder than we thought it would be because of the ocean breeze, so make sure that you are prepared.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your stay was fabulous! We travel the world with our work and with all of the beautiful places we have been blessed to see. SILVERSTRAND BEACH and Ventura County Coast are the most fabulous of all! The local surfers are great fun to watch, and the dolphin love the Silverstrand surf. I agree about the Channel Islands whale watching. Other great fun is the Island Outfitters kayaking or hiking day. The televisions are smart TVs so the input button is magic. If anyone else has this problem there is an instructuntion greeting card on how to use the smart TVs ... or just call me, my number is in the Welcome Book.😎 We want your stay to be delightful, so don’t hesitate to call.

It was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This home and location was perfect for our large family of 15. It was wonderful to wake up and take a short stroll to the beach and then we were able to go back and forth to the house with ease for various needs throughout the day. The owners, Nila and John were so easy to work with and they responded quickly with any questions or concerns we might have. We even enjoyed getting to know some of the neighbors, they were welcoming and friendly. If we come back to this area again we wouldn’t hesitate to book with them again if they will take us! We had a fabulous week making many new memories with our kids and grandkids!

Silverstrand Beach
Car: recommended

Silver Strand Beach is an unincorporated beach neighborhood located within the census-designated place Channel Islands Beach in Ventura County, California, United States. It is known for it's wide white sand beach, excellent surf conditions and kiddie beach. Lying between the mouth of Channel Islands Harbor on the north and the ocean entrance to the Port of Hueneme on the south, the eastern side of the beach community lies along the boundary of the Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme. The harbors and the Naval base almost completely surround Silver Strand, keeping the area relatively separate from the city of Oxnard and making it accessible by only one main road, Victoria Avenue.[1] Because of its location near an open water trench, it is common to see a large array of marine life including dolphins and seals. Silverstrand is also home to the Oxnard Base of the United States Coast Guard. There are many charter operations offering whale watching, deep sea fishing, kayak and island tours also surf board, paddle board and bicycle rentals. See the beautiful Channel Island caves, experience food and wine tours, Sunday's excellent Farmer's Market or simply lounge on the beach.

The home is fully equipped, very clean with crisp white linens throughout.
