"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!"

Such an amazing and beautiful oasis we found at Casa al Mare. Jamie and Billy are the sweetest hosts and provided us with peace, comfort, snacks and a bottle of wine upon our arrival. Jamie is warm and kind....met us with big hugs and a smile. Billy even gave us some tips for good hiking close by. We absolutely loved our stay. We were able to relax and spend lots of romantic and quiet time together. Close to the pier.....we were able to catch an amazing sunset. Close to downtown Ventura for a little bit of night life and people watching. Close to Ojai for yes....hiking trails!!!! Right up there with all of those great experiences was being able to come home to our little oasis : ) Thank you Jamie and Billy!!!
Jamie was a very gracious host who welcomed us right away and made us feel comfortable very quick. The cottage was perfect for my friend and I, which included a complimentary bottle of wine! Private entrance with privacy respected at all times. Quiet cozy neoghborhood and beautiful deck in the works. Would definitely stay here again.
This stay has been perfect in any way. Jamie will help you, no matter what concern you might have.
The rooms are very clean and are equipped with everything you need (and even more).
I can not think of any kind of vacation where this would not be the perfect place to stay in Ventura.
My friend and I had a wonderful stay at casa al mare! It's located in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, only minutes from everything Ventura has to offer. The place itself is cozy (the bed is unreal!! So comfy) and perfect for 2. Jamie was the SWEETEST host, and made us comfortable immediately. I will definitely be coming back to visit!
Very nice spot, would stay again. Check in was easy and welcoming and the back yard space was enjoyable. Nice drinks and snacks in the room and sounds like continuous improvement on the property.
My girlfriend and I needed a break from the LA hustle. We found this great little place and it did the trick. Falling asleep to the running fountain in the back yard gave us the most peaceful sleep we have had in awhile. I didn't get to meet the owners officially but anything we needed was handled through txt quickly and with care. The decor of the place is great. Comes with your own porch for great night talks. But hands down the best part is the BED! Makes it hard to leave. If your headed this way, this is a great place to stay!

Jamie's cozy Guest Cottage behind a traditional Ventura Bulgalow in a very quiet neighborhood is about as good as it gets. I booked to stay during the Ventura County Fair Equestrian competition as I wanted a better experience than last year's at a well-known local hotel. Jamie did not disappoint. Casa al Mare is in close proximity to everything! As both Jamie and I were exceptionally busy during my stay, we agreed to make time for coffee the morning of my departure.
It was wonderful knowing that I would return late at night to the comfort of Jamie's cottage, heavenly bed, and the soothing sound of the gurgling fountain which lulled me to sleep. There is no doubt about where I will stay for next year's competition - IF Jamie will have me back. I hope we can schedule more quality time together.
