"This cottage is like staying in an apartment therapy photoshoot. It is obvious how much love and attention to detail Jamie has poured into making this retreat unforgettable. We flew into LA with a few days to decompress before a slew of family holiday visits - and this cottage did just that. Enjoyed restful sleep, quiet evenings, and access to beach town Ventura as well as LA in under an hour. The cottage is perfect for two and even has it's own patio area (perfect for AM coffee and reading) and private entrance. We didn't want to leave. Jamie is a phenomenal host and extremely responsive - she made sure we felt right at home and is ready with recommendations for anything you can think of. We will definitely be booking with her again!"

Check In
  • Jamie's place is fantastic! It's so peaceful and charming, and Jamie is such a friendly, easygoing host who made sure we had everything we needed. The location is just a short drive to downtown and beaches. Highly recommend!

  • Adorable place!

  • Jamie's light and airy place was an oasis of calm and restfulness for me. After doing some hard traveling by train and foot, staying at hostels and in a monastery, the luxury of having my own space, and having it be so beautiful, was really a gift. Jamie even came to pick me up in front of the mission after my train arrived, so that I could get my bearings before having to take the bus (which really is incredibly close by the house, and easy - if you go to (website hidden), you can find out just when the next bus will be - super convenient even if you have a car, so you don't have to mess with parking downtown). I loved the sitting area outside in the mornings, listening to the fountain, and definitely appreciated the wonderful bed!! I would come back to Casa al Mare in a hot minute! What a great find, and a terrific place to stay while researching the mission, writing, and resting.

  • This space was perfect for what I was looking for - rest and relaxation. Jamie has put a lot of thought and care into the decor and surroundings. She and her husband were very accommodating and friendly. Their dogs were also very welcoming to me and my little pooch. I hope to stay there again sometime.

  • Jamie and her husband were very kind and welcoming hosts. They were communicative and helpful throughout our stay. The cottage is such a wonderfully comfortable and well furnished space. My husband wanted to take the linens home! It was especially nice listening to the tiny pond outside and watching birds hang out in the patio.

    Bonus: Jamie's home is centrally located in Ventura and is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. It is also minutes from 101 and the beach. Because of this, we would very happily return to Casa al Mare!

  • Jamie was a great host and the place was amazing. It is a perfect destination for a little down time.

  • Jamie was a great host, accessible but not intrusive. The space is great and the location couldn't be better. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind every night after exploring the Channel Islands and Ventura.

  • My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this private guest cottage. It was quiet and very private. A nice garden to sit in and watch the lily pond. What more can you ask?

    March 2014
  • The little cottage was welcoming, cozy, and comfortable. I was all stressed out and very much in need of a break and this was perfect. It's quiet, there's wifi, there's Netflix, a little mini kitchen, and a very nice bathroom. I stayed for almost a week and loved every minute. I had all the privacy I needed - Jamie left me alone unless I went to talk to her. And the dogs are adorable - they all came outside to say goodbye to me when I left.
