"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!"

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.
Casa al Mare is a fantastic place for a quiet getaway. Situated between downtown Ventura, the Harbor, and beach/ pier this is the perfect location. The space is updated, comfortable, and perfect for two people!
We had a great experience! They have a very nice little place and it was stocked with plenty of amenities. We were greeted with a hug and even though we are somewhat private, they totally respected that! It was a a great weekend trip. They are in a great location and easy to get to the main area.
What an awesome find! Not just because of the open air bungalow feel, but the hospitality that came with it. It was a business trip to attend the Oxnard Salsa Festival, and it ended up being super pleasant in so many respects.We spent Friday on the beach (which is only a 1.25 mile walk downhill). Jamie had two backpack style beach chairs for us to take. Uber was never more than 5 mins wait all weekend long, making easy to get around and try different restaurants. The main drag is just a few mins down the road from Jamie and Bill's place. Thus, the location is great. As for the unit itself, it is decorated so charmingly. The bed is like a cloud. You have everything you need, and the hosts are super attentive if you are looking for anything extra. We spent a little time hanging in the garden with a cocktail. The fountain is such a nice sound to fall asleep to. The dogs were never an issue. They are quiet and friendly, and even partitioned on the owners' side of the yard. We left the doors open all day and night to experience the cool, fresh air. They had wi-fi and streaming services on a nice sized TV. Plenty of towels, a small kitchen area with sink/microwave/utensils, and a clean bathroom. We thoroughly enjoyed our interaction with Jamie and Bill. They are good people and if we're ever back in Ventura, it would be disappointing not to be able to stay with them. You will be in good hands!!
Jamie made our stay in Ventura perfect. Her place was darling and she offered us terrific tips on enjoying our stay!
Casa al Mare is in a great neighborhood, the host is a sweetheart and we had a great stay.
