KAX: The KIDabra Midyear 2015

OK, So The KAX HQ is kind of swanky digs! Every room is a 2 room suite with 2 bathrooms, and complimentary wireless! Enjoy a cooked to order complimentary breakfast each morning, and a free guest reception each evening with beverages and snacks from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Get lost among the waterfalls, pools, tennis courts, beach, and a great conference too:)
Just minutes from Axtell Expressions, the area is gorgeous, after all Movie Legend Clark Gable lived within walking distance of the hotel:) Charlie Chaplin and John Wayne often escaped the pressures of Hollywod in Oxnard. And keep your eyes peeled if you're fans of the movies Back to The Future, Sideways, and Bridesmaids, film segments were shot here!
