"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!"

Jamie was warm and welcoming! She greeted us with a hug and showed us around the cottage we'd be staying at. It was such a special weekend for us and every detail (i.e. bottle of wine, decor, games and patio) made it that much more enjoyable! The atmosphere that she created was one that allowed us to slow down life and feel comfortable. She gave us our privacy, but was available if we needed her.
Thank you Jamie and if we ever come back to Ventura we sure know where we'll be staying.

Very nice bungalow! Very clean in a quite neighborhood. Stayed for 2 nights, had total privacy. Very clean!
This is a treasure of Ventura - small house in the quiet garden. You have everything you need for the perfect stay - small kitchen, bath, bed and comfortable sofa. And the garden with a lot of places to sit and relax. Flowers and lights. Dogs are not allowed to come to the guest's house, so you won't be bothered by them, but I guess you can play with them if you want - they are 4 adorable furry fluffy creatures) In this place you have a lot of privacy, your own entrance.
Totally recommend you this place!
Jamie was hospitable and gracious for our entire stay. If I needed anything, she got back to me right away. She had wine and snacks waiting for us upon our arrival. The bed is very comfortable, and the cottage is extremely clean and well kept. We found the neighborhood to be quiet, aside from being awoken by the beautiful songs of birds. There are two small dogs that live a Jamie's house, who bark a bit when you first arrive, which I thought was going to be a problem, but they quieted right down and we didn't hear them for the rest of our stay! If you're looking for a relaxing get away, I would recommend staying with Jamie!
Casa al Mare was tucked away in a quiet neighborhood and the small cottage had the flavor of a relaxing retreat. Jamie and Billy were very friendly, kind, and helpful. We appreciated the small extra details, like night lights and delicious snacks, that made our stay enjoyable. Thank you, both!
