We were pleasantly surprised to find this nice, clean and quiet gem while in town for a wedding. Two story with two master bedrooms upstairs. Kitchen, family room, bathroom, washer & dryer downstairs. Bonus was the hot tub on the patio. We will definitely come back!

Enjoyed my stay at Channel Islands Resort, and hope to go back again. 1 BR condo (upstairs, over the garages) was spacious, clean, comfortable, and well stocked with linens, kitchen supplies, etc. Hot tub on the deck was lovely! Very clean and pleasant to sit out under the stars and listen to the waves hit the shore. This is a...

Our family of 6 stayed here multiple times this year. If you want a home instead of a hotel room (at the same cost as a hotel room!!), with laundry and hot tubs and multiple bathrooms and super clean and quality amenities, this is the place to be. It is also about 30 seconds to walk to the beach. Unbelievable.

Only stayed 1 night, passing through... too short! Smaller complex, all units open up/face interior gated courtyard. Nice quiet neighborhood. My unit 1317, was a 2 bedroom, 2 story unit, very comfortable. ( one comment, not a complaint.. would suggest brighter lights/wattage in the bathrooms!) I look forward to my next, longer stay, when I am in that area again!

Dear BarbB2000, Thank you for your review! We agree that one night is definitely too short of a stay to truly enjoy our beach location and spacious rooms. We are in the process of changing out all our lights to LED lighting so hopefully you will have better lighting in the bathrooms during your next stay. We hope you come...

Agree with many reviews - this is a nice, friendly, clean place practically on the beach. We truly enjoyed our stay here. Even though I wasn't impacted by this, my main concern relates to their website not having any details around a 15% cancellation fee - regardless of when you cancel your reservation. I only learned about it after I...

We love this place! It's actually our home resort in our timeshare, but we never seem to get here. So glad we did this year! The place has been remodeled and there's lots of new stuff, even new furniture. The units have private jacuzzis in each, which is very nice. The kitchens are well appointed and the wifi has been...

We had a wonderful time. The location was perfect, the view of the beach was fabulous, the private hot tub was very well maintained, and every employee we encountered was friendly, courteous, and helpful; they seemed to really like their job.

We so enjoyed our week at Channel Island Shores. The condo was just a short walk to the beach. In fact, we could see the ocean from our bedroom window. Condos are located in a quiet, residential area. The closest hotel is the Embassy Suites. During our morning walks, we discovered were were within a mile of the marina. We...

We spent 9 days here visiting friends living in Oxnard and loved it. The apartment was spacious and very well equipped. TV sets in the bedroom and the (small) living room.
