Excellent for a gathering of our extended family (20 people) - we used all three units as one.
We had a great gathering there. The variety of rooms worked well for the various family groups that attended. Everyone thought this was a great choice! We made large meals in the Penthouse and ate in the spacious area there. Some ate breakfast or snacked in the other kitchens. The beach starts about two steps from the front yard and many of our group enjoyed it, especially the kids. Von's, a large grocery store is about 1.5 miles away and has almost everything you might need. Use GPS to get around if you have it - many found it easy to become disoriented while driving local streets. Easy access to Ventura (20 - 30 minutes) and the coast highway. As with any beach front rental, a few things needed maintenance, but overall it was in very good shape and beautifully decorated. If it was any nicer, I might have worried about bringing kids for a 5 day stay. Overall, the experience was 5 star.
