Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Simi Valley
This exceptional recreational destination will provide you with multiple summer-time activities but also with an outstanding area for everyday living.
There's always a certain amount of fantasy involved in purchasing a beach house, so do your best to bring reality back when it's important.
Realism is critical when you're making a budget for your home as well as many other decisions you're going to be making - it’s imperative you stay focused to avoid any disappointments (but we understand buying a home in such wonderful location may be distracting).
Things you'll love
Where to start ... Besides outstanding views, blue ocean, and wonderful beaches you’ll find countless possibilities when it comes to the hangout spots or workplaces. It’s simply amazing to have so many marvelous cafes and pubs overlooking the ocean. It's also a chance for younger people looking for a first job as there are many businesses offering seasonal employment (and demand for employees is always present considering a number of tourists in the area).
A number of school options will satisfy the most demanding tastes. True heaven to community-engaged families, parents not actively participating in school life are more an exception than a rule. Multiple private and public schools can be found in the usually walkable distance.
The popularization of the ocean area has made it an excellent transport hub, enabling swift and smooth access to the downtown and the city center. Direct bus services permit to travel between different beaches without any inconvenience, allowing to visit every chosen coast in the near proximity.
