"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 a great host and had everything set up to make my stay really easy, relaxing, and the perfect creative retreat I needed. Easy to explore all of Ventura from here. And the bed was incredibly comfortable!
I really enjoyed my stay at Jamie's. It was perfect and she was the best host. Very warm and welcoming. Definitely going to be back!
We had a wonderful 5 night stay at Casa al Mare. Jamie was helpful and answered all of my questions. At the same time, we had privacy and enjoyed our space separate from the main house. The neighborhood was beautiful. We visited different beaches everyday, enjoyed local hole-in-the-wall restaurants. El Jarocho and Bagel Rock Coffee were our favorites! The outdoor area at Casa al Mare was our favorite. Thanks Jamie & Billy!
We had a lovely stay at Casa al Mare. The cottage was well laid out and very functional. I was so impressed by the amenities. The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils and dishware one would need, and there was coffee and creamer and yogurt in the fridge! I really felt like Jamie went above and beyond to provide a welcome space. The proximity to downtown was ideal -- close, but the property was very quiet and serene. The backyard garden was an oasis, and from our room it looked like we were in Hawaii. Jamie was so kind in giving us recommendations and yet we had the space to just do our own thing. Thanks again!
We had a wonderful time staying at Casa al Mare. Jamie was a warm and wonderful host, and we felt supremely welcomed upon our arrival! The little outdoor patio is a lovely area for enjoying a glass of wine or tea in the evening, and the space is cozy without being cramped. We especially enjoyed our proximity to both Ojai and Santa Barbara, as we were able to manage day trips to both places in addition to spending some time in Ventura itself. Thanks for a lovely, relaxing weekend, Jamie! Hope to be back in the near future.
Jamie did an excellent job of getting me settled in...and was easily available if needed. Wonderful location. What a sweet and cozy refuge. A perfect get-away!
Jamie was a great host with a beautiful little studio. Casa al Mare was a quite and well kept paradise for my girlfriend and my newborn baby.
