    Nice to meet ya!

    You could say that the Menzel Group started in the 1970’s as a result of the early days of Chuck surfing the coast of Santa Barbara, Ventura and beyond. As a Santa Barbara native and longtime Ventura County resident, Chuck grew up blocks from the beach and is a lifelong kayaker, surfer, and diver, with a love for the ocean that runs deep. His passion for the coastline, the beach community and buying and selling homes been a foundation of the Menzel group. Chuck has passed that passion to his daughter Shannon and we are excited to bring our experience, motivation and knowledge to you!

    Chuck and Shannon are here to offer a wide selection of the finest beach homes in Ventura for purchase and vacation rental including ocean front luxury homes, quaint beach cottages and even coastal mountain getaways in the nearby Ojai Valley.

    If you are seeking the ultimate California lifestyle experience, you will appreciate the authentic, personalized experience that we provide. We look forward to creating a truly memorable coastal vacation or finding your new dream home for you and your family!
