"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!"

Casa al Mare was the perfect secluded getaway, while still being conveniently located. The neighborhood is so charming and love all the landscaping, including Casa al Mare's private garden. Oh and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud; we definitely enjoyed a good nap or two. We enjoyed being a scenic walk to/from the pier and downtown Venture. Also enjoyed dining at several nearby recommended restaurants. Delicious breakfast at Café Nouveau, a fresh yummy lunch at Beach House Tacos and a great seafood dinner at Lure. Jamie and Billy have carefully thought of every detail.
Jamie made sure that her place was just as welcoming as described: the studio was clean, cozy, furnished with colorful and creative pieces, lovely books, cute kitchenette and very very comfortable bed. Good sleep is hundred per cent guaranteed! The location is ideal, down on Seaward we found good places to eat and awesome spot to watch the sunset and dolphins(!!!!!). Jamie was super nice, she made last minute adjustments to our later arrival and she was attentive to small details such as a French Cider Brut and Belgian kookjes (cookies) that were waiting for us. The doggies were on the other side of a short fence in the garden, they did not come to the seperated area of the guest house. Thank you again for the relaxed time!
My wife and I were in town for a wedding and really enjoyed our stay here! Jamie was a great host, very welcoming but gave us our privacy. We really liked that the space was detached from the main house so it was like our own little cottage. Jamie quickly responded when we had an issue with the water heater which she was able to fix almost immediately. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
Jamie was very welcoming and easy to work with. My flight didn't land until really late, and I didn't arrive to the house until 1:30am-- she had everything ready and all lit up so I wouldn't get lost!
The place is exactly what the photos show, but better. I could have lived in the robe provided! And the bed... SO comfortable.
My only regret is not staying longer and not sleeping more :)
THANK YOU, Jamie!
We were in need for a place to stay while our housing area was being tented for bugs. Casa Al Mare was incredibly relaxing, the hosts very incredibly nice, and our stay was perfect. We had a very nice and relaxing time, and the facilities were fantastic! Included was a nice side area with chairs to relax in, a cozy living room with a comfy bed, and a nicely sized bathroom. It more than suited our needs for the few days we needed somewhere to stay.
Casa al Mare was a perfect retreat for us. We loved how close it was to everything and how peaceful and beautiful it was just to stay in. Jamie and Billy's attention to detail and artistry was visible in everything. We recommend their place to anyone looking for a relaxing and beautiful stay in Ventura.
Such an amazing space with an amazing host. My husband and I were delighted to get away for the weekend in such a sweet, cozy and well kept space. The decor is beautiful - I just can't say enough about how perfect this was for us. We will be back for sure!
