This 4-bedroom beach property is just steps from the sand and an almost private beach,with its own hot tub on the roof. There are bike paths, a dock and a park nearby. We are driving distance from Ojai, Malibu, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. This is a perfect base for a Southern California traveler. They call Oxnard "North America's Galapagos" because of the unique species on the nearby Channel Islands. Check our Facebk or Instagram @HollywoodBeachRetreat for videos of the property & cool facts.
We are only 2 houses away from the sands of the lovely Hollywood Beach, southern California's best kept secret. It's almost private, expansive and gorgeous. We have a hot tub and lounge on the rooftop deck with 360 degrees of the ocean and the city; 2 fireplaces, BBQ grill, 2 Bikes, a balcony and plenty of space for journaling and quiet time. This is a true retreat. Wood beam ceilings and a wet bar. There is so much Hollywood history here as well. Without paparazzi, Hollywood still comes here to play. Many of our guests have chosen to come for special occasions like anniversaries and birthdays, some for hiking, biking and water sports, some just to relax and renew.
Our motto: Enjoy. Relax. Repeat.

All household amenities: Nespresso machine, Nutribullet blender for shakes and smoothies, Mr. Coffee coffeemaker, cable and 3 smart TVs to connect to your own smart phone, 2 irons/ironing boards, 2 hair dryers, 2 yoga mats, luggage racks throughout.
Beach amenities: beach towels, beach cart, 3 beach chairs, 5 boogie boards, 2 pairs of goggles.
We are the original owners of the Hollywood Beach Retreat. It has brought so much joy, peace and relaxation to our family. We know that it will do the same for our guests.
Please note: unfortunately, we cannot allow parties (city noise ordinance prohibits 9p-7a), drugs, smoking (includes medical marijuana and e-cigarettes) or pets of any kind on the property, inside or outside. We do not recommend The Hollywood Beach Retreat for young children because of the spiral staircase, lack of child proofing and several doors that lead to the outside and the rooftop hot tub.

Limit the maximum guests to 4 people. Please keep noise to a minimum (no parties or special events/photo shoots or filming without approval). Strictly prohibited both inside and outside: smoking (this includes pipes, e-cigarettes and marijuana), drugs or pets. We have an open spiral staircase that is not ideal for young children.
We respectfully request that you do the following to keep the house clean for yourselves and the next guests. Please:
• Rinse off all sand with the side yard shower/hose and dry feet before entering the house.
• Check the bottom of your feet for tar and use the spray (or toothpaste) and paper towels (by the shower) to remove it prior to entering the house or spa area.
• Do not sit on the indoor furnishings with wet swimwear or clothing.
Please cover the hot tub after each use.
• Do not put wet towels on the furniture or floor.
• All perishable foods and recyclables must be thrown out in the appropriate trash bins prior to your departure. If you are there on a Sunday please put trash bins on the street and remove them by Monday afternoon (if you are there on a Monday)
• Upon departure, please lock all windows and doors and clean all dinnerware and cookware used. Please put everything back in its original place whenever possible.
Please let us know immediately if anything is not working or if there is a problem.
NOTE: Although the cleaning fee does pay for the house to be professionally cleaned, we do ask that you clean all the dinnerware/silverware/cookware used, and that everything is in the general location that you found it on arrival. Stripping used beds and putting used towels and bedding by the washing machine is super helpful. *Messes that require more than normal cleaning time will incur extra fees. Smoking (including medical marijuana and e-cigarettes), drugs or pets anywhere on the property will result in a loss of your deposit*
Enjoy your beach retreat!
We are also open to long term guests. Snowbirds, please apply. If you have questions, we have answers. We do have outdoor cameras for our safety and yours. We will do our best to let you know about special events and festivals that happen during your stay (we list as many as possible in the house manual as well).
Other than that, we are not on the property. If you would like to check out our Instagram or Facebk pages for more information we are @HollywoodBeachRetreat. Hotel taxes are included in the nightly rate, so there are no additional fees on our end.
We love to travel, eat well and enjoy the best beach in Southern California. (Shhh it's the best kept secret). Trying new things (food, travel, music, art) is a passion! I just had my first (a great experience) Airbnb and would love to share our beach house with you. Hablo español. Je parle un peu français. Eu falo um pouco de português. I speak a little bit of a few languages, which might be helpful to some of our guests.
