If you are going to be spending most of your time in Thousand Oaks, you should live in TO.

I'd like to find a place with a nice downtown, a pedestrian area with some shops. I'm worried I could get bored staying in a very nice place but isolated.

Thousand Oaks does not have a downtown as you describe. You might take a visit to downtown Ventura. Leave your car in the parking structure at California & Santa Clara streets and explore downtown and the waterfront on foot from there. There's a lot more pedestrian and "new-urbanism" development coming to Ventura in the future.

Downtown Oxnard is coming along quite nicely, as well, but it will be a little bit before it catches up. Big changes coming there, too, though. More walkability in Oxnard, visit Seabridge at Victoria and Wooley. A bit pricey, but very nice pedestrian orientation, mixed use, housing near retail, commercial and right on the harbor. Riverpark and the new Wagon Wheel developments promise more new-urbanism development, but they're only in construction ATM.

Westlake Village is really nice! I would much rather live there than in Santa Monica. Plus the commute from Santa Monica to Thousand Oaks would be pretty brutal.

TO and Westlake Village are indeed safe and have superb schools, but can get brutally hot during the summer, but are only 20 minutes or so from the beach as was previously stated.

I'd much rather live in either TO or Westlake Village as opposed to Santa Monica, and if you'd like to get away for the weekend, San Francisco is only 5 1/2 hours away from TO.
