Magnificent home exchange on the Channel Islands canal at Oxnard, ...

Barbara from Dominical said

Magnificent home exchange on the Channel Islands canal at Oxnard, CA This beautifully appointed home is on a corner, 100 feet from the water with uninterrupted views out to the Channel Islands. One of the greatest people watching spots ever. Wet suited surfers early in the morning , locals walking their dogs, whale watching boats heading out - never a dull moment. A great location from which to explore this part of California from Ventura to Santa Barbara to Hearst Castle, and south to LA if you absolutely have to! A great area for walking or biking. Cloudless days and cool nights when the fireplace in the living room is really welcome. We could not recommend the home or the location more highly. Warwick & Barbara Lowe

What we said about Barbara's house:

Magnificent way to discover Costa Rica! This is a fabulous modern home in the heart of the jungle with all the sounds, butterflys, birds and pizotes too. You will be so happy here swimming in the warm pool and hot tub, watching the ocean. It was 45min. drive to Manual Antonio National Park and is where we went on many tours. We loved the beaches near the house as well as the golf a 1 hour drive north, at El Sueno Resort. The media room is air conditioned and a wonderful place to see movies and TV at night. I still cannot believe I did not get one bug or mosquito bite the entire trip. You will want to rent a 4/wheel drive for the short bumpy road to the house and for the trip up to Poas Volcano. Our favorite place became the house because it was so easy to live in, with an amazing library and beautiful art. You see the view from every room in the house. The glass wall in the living room slides open for the indoor/outdoor feel, and is a see-through house to the jungle on the other side. Our favorite restaurant was near Manuel Antonio National Park at a hotel Arenas del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort. It had it's own beach with trees shading the restaurant, with great food. You will have the time of your life if you stay in this exceptional home. Good luck on your next exchange, Steve and Priscilla Gauger

Jill from Palm Desert, US said

We over looked the inlet to the Channel Islands Marina and daily we watched bikini clad owners walking a variety of dogs and kayakers in life vests rowing out to sea. The silver sunsets silhouetted the sails of tail ships. Large boats passed us with decks loaded with hikers bound for the pristine Channel Islands where there are no cars, no towns, no permanent residents. All of this we watched from the comfort of our second floor living room surrounded by plate glass windows that gave us a 180 degree vista of the daily parade in the inlet from the Channel Island Marina to the open water of the Pacific Ocean. The house was immaculate, comfortable with modern decor. Only one house away was miles of beach. alas, we were so busy watching the inlet that we only walked along the water early in the morning, but if you love beach, this one is beautiful. It is the Silver Strands Beach near Oxnard, CA. I have seldom had a more relaxing, entertaining and interesting home exchange. This place offeres it all.
