The Space

The wonderful beauty of this waterfront location is only the beginning! We are the gateway to the Channel Islands National Park, a pristine group of islands off of our coast that have incredible diving, hiking, kayaking, whale watching and so much more! You have available to you for a nominal daily charge, 2 Ocean kayaks with paddles, 2 Stand Up paddle boards with his and hers paddles, a soft top longboard, a 7'6" tri fin fun board, harbor tours aboard a Boston Whaler, day sailboat excursions and more!

This space is unique because of all that is available to a waterfront unit. You have access to all water toys and also sail, power, and fishing charters. There is a pool/jacuzzi, exercise room, pool tables, darts, and ping pong table. There is a banquet room that can be rented. The space is tastefully decorated with all modern amenities and your own private balcony.

You are walking distance to all waterfront shops, wine bars, grocery and drug stores, restaurants, and the Maritime Museum

There is a new queen pillowtop bed in the bedroom and a queen aerobed that can be set up in living room to accommodate 4.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to all amenities on the property and everything that is literally steps outside your door. Here we have a pool and jacuzzi, tennis courts,dartboard, and 2 pool tables ( we have 2 rackets, darts, and billiard balls and cue stick ). Our community center can be rented out for a small fee for private parties.
Next door to our property is The Marine Emporium Landing, with restaurants, kayak and SUP rentals, Electric boat rentals, bike rentals, wave runner rentals, day and overnight fishing trips, whale watching ( in season ), and national park island excursions. Lots of local brochures and menus in binder located in night table next to bed.

Interaction with Guests

As much or little as you want really. We always check in by phone once to see if you need anything and you're enjoying your stay, but unless you want a tour guide, a captain, or suggestions on restaurants/things to do, you're on your own. There is no shortage of fun things to do, and its pretty great to just kick back and relax.

The Neighborhood

Out your front door is the water and view of every boat coming in or leaving harbor. Out the back door and half a block away is Hollywood Beach to put your toes in the sand and see the beautiful islands off our coast. Catch a sunset and have a libation at the infamous Rudder Room right on the sand!

Getting Around

You can easily leave your car parked in our gated parking lot the whole time you are here if you wish. Almost everything is within walking distance, and there is also a water taxi that can take you to Supermarket and more restaurants. Besides that, we love Uber!

Other Things to Note

*** Please note that 4 times a year our rates will be slightly higher because of our location and demand:
Memorial Day Weekend
July 4th (we have the best place to sit and watch fireworks from patio, see them in the sky and the reflection in the water! They are launched right across the water from our property.)
Labor Day Weekend
Festival of Lights Holiday Boat Parade Weekend (we are right in front of the parade route, so you see every boat pass by numerous times, and can even get out to docks to get a closer view)

Look up the Ventura County Wine Trail and you'll see we have some world class tasting rooms and wineries all within a 10-15 mile radius of the residence.
There are also 2 great Automobile Museum collections close by: The Mullin Automotive Museum (my fave) and The Murphy Auto Museum.
Downtown Ventura is a great little beach town main street with great shops, cafes, and restaurants.
