Fishman Review 3/15
April 25, 2015
We loved staying in Oxnard for a month! We found the cottage charming both inside and out and the location special (easy access to beaches, hiking, running, biking, restaurands and other social activities). We found the owner easy to reach and very quick in making arrangements to fix any issues that arose . She was helpful in personally making suggestions for restaurants, etc. Her Guest Book was a great asset and we used it often. David, especially, enjoyed the music collection. Also, we so apprciate that the cottage was pet friendly and we made a special effort to be respectful of that fact.
We would like to suggest, however, that the cottage (inside and out) could use one really deep cleaning (paint splatters on bathroom floor, side of refrigerator door, marks on some walls, planter pots near front door in disarray and shelf dirty) in addition to a more thorough cleaning before tenants arrive especially in the kitchen area (pots and pans with burnt on grease marks, some of the cooking utensils looked like they had not been cleaned after use, spiders and their webs in laundry room which you have to pass through to get to back yard). Also, we felt that the gardener could do a more thorough job (lots of overgrowth on path, roses branches in way of entering front door, leaves and other garden debris on ground, the covered outdoor area was messy and not clean). And, finally, it would really be useful to have some small dresser or even open shelves for clothes storage in the master bedroom.
However, let us stress again that we loved the cottage and grounds and hope to come back next year!!!!
