Westlake Village is a very quiet suburb of the Los Angeles county that borders Ventura Country. With that being said, commute towards the latter county is quiet excellent - it's a whole different story if you are trying to go in the other direction, though.

ENTERTAINMENT, DINING, SOCIAL SCENE IS GREAT IN WESTLAKE VILLAGE. THE COMMUNITY IS SAFE; HOWEVER THE AFFORDABILITY OF HOUSING IS ON THE HIGHER END.
I've lived most of my life in Westlake Village and I've had a great experience. I always felt very safe in my neighborhood and it was a good central location for driving both to LA and to Ventura County. I never had to travel more than 10 miles for the 3 jobs I've had while living here. There are several movie theaters nearby as well as a couple of malls and plenty of restaurants. Overall, Westlake Village is a great place to live if you have the income for it.
