my husband and I and my brother and his wife enjoyed our week together this year. it would have been more helpful if we could have had two full baths instead of one to share! otherwise we had a great time and loved the proximity of the beach - beautiful and quiet!

Room Tip: the east bedroom picked up the noise from the neighboring unit and was very disruptive for sleeping...

Great Service, and such a Gorgeous view of the beach from our room. The surroundings made this trip worth while! Really enjoyed having your own jacuzzi to ourselves. Talked to the Manager, Jennifer, and she was just great. Very helpful, and made me feel in paradise.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view make you feel you're in paradise!

I love the area and the resort was just the best place for me to stay. Close to the beach and everything else I could want. The staff was very helpful and friendly, place very clean and well kept. Will definitely stay here again, looking forward to it.

Room Tip: there isn't a pool but most rooms have a hot tub to enjoy. Never saw a fitness center.

We traveled from Oceanside to Oxnard on Amtrak to join the rest of our family for a mini-getaway. I was pleasantly surprised! I felt like I was transported to the eastern seaboard. The sand dunes and tall grass was something I’d never seen along the west coast. The beach was the largest and most vast beach I've seen in a long time. We live just 4 miles from the beach in the Carlsbad and our beaches didn't compare to the size or cleanliness of Oxnard Shores. Our children range from 3-7 and they loved the public play structure on the beach sand. Our first morning there we witnessed a baby seal being released back into the ocean while my brother-in-law surfed. The resort is 150 steps to the beach sand nestled among amazing multi-million dollar homes. The resort was set back just enough to allow you to disconnect from our busy lives. Just a few blocks away, on the beach, we had a picnic at the best public park. Our spacious accommodations felt like home, with our own Jacuzzi and BBQ grill on our back patio! We can’t wait to go back!

We stayed at this property in March and had an amazing time. The resort itself is small, but the rooms are spacious and have everything you could need. The beach is amazing and right outside the gate- the kids loved the playground on the beach and the huge park down the street. They also had a great time climbing the sand dunes while we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. The individual jacuzzis are a nice touch! The resort is in a gorgeous neighborhood and its fun to just walk around and look at the beach houses. We will be back for sure.

This resort has such beautiful views, so close to a quiet, peaceful beach and just minutes from the harbor. I got to enjoy the jacuzzi tub on the balcony of my room while sipping wine and listening to the waves crash under the stars. Doesn't get much better than that. Aside from that, the rooms are spacious, had a washer/dryer and are very clean. The staff is so wonderful and obviously genuinely care about the resort and the guests. I'll be back next month!

My husband, daughter and I spent a delightful weekend recently at your resort. I have relatives in Santa Barbara and Goleta and have driven from San Diego north to visit them many times. Besides a quick exit on Rose for Costco, I had never spent any time in Oxnard. From the minute we pulled up to the Channel Island Shores, we were in love.
The rooms were ridiculously spacious and clean. We had two bedrooms upstairs each with their own ensuite. The kitchen was generously sized and well stocked. The hot tub was a wonderful touch and we did enjoy using it!
The front office staff gave us a tip on a restaurant that we visited for Saturday morning breakfast. The food was delicious with generous portions and excellent service.
The beach was pristine and not at all crowded and parking was painless and well thought out.
All in all, a wonderful experience. You'll be seeing us again!
