*** The studio is attached to our home and we may be present during your stay. We do have two bubbly, small children that you may see or hear rumbling around the property. You may hear muffled, limited noise during the day as we go about our business but noise is limited. Since the studio itself is private the interaction between yourself and us is very limited.
However, we are happy to accommodate you in anyway we can. We've lived in the area for nearly ten years and are happy to share with you all our favorite places and share ideas of things to do and see in Ventura and surrounding areas.
Plenty of free street parking.
It is a very cute place. I gave it a 3 because it wasn't what I had in mind. I thought it would be much closer to downtown because of the pictures. I could have researched it further. Everything is there to meet your needs: water, coffee pot, snacks etc. It is spotlessly clean. It is very private and safe.
It was a pleasure to stay at Anna's mid-town Ventura studio. Parking was great, right outside of our door. We didn't have time to use the patio area; perhaps next time. The studio was nicely furnished and very clean. She included condiments that everyone needs (butter, mustard, oil, etc.) as well as snacks and water from Trader Joes. A generous supply of silverwear, dishes, bowls, etc. were greatly appreciated. We ate about half of our meals in the space. We plan on staying here again as we travel to Ventura several times a year. I would suggest a small table (there are already the two chairs) for a place to sit and eat with a good light above for reading, etc. Also I'm nearly blind without my glasses so it would be nice to have a stand next to the bed for my glass of water, eyeglasses and flashlight. Anna was happy to answer any questions that we had and was very responsive to our requests for towels. Plenty of hot water was also welcomed. We had the opportunity to meet her and her darling boys the morning that we left, We also thought it funny that everything that we wanted was just about one mile away (the beach, Trader Joes, the dog park, the shopping mall). Anna's neighborhood is a great place to call home during your stay in Ventura. Thanks Anna!
Anna was absolutely wonderful. While we didn't get to meet her she was very communicative and welcoming through text. Little touches like fresh flowers, granola bars, candy, bottled water, and a welcome note really made our stay in Ventura fantastic. The studio was very clean and had all the amenities we needed for our two night stay. Would definitely come back!
We had a great time at Anna's studio, it was spotless clean and had everything we needed; easy parking, lots of towels, fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee maker (and coffee), a lot of plates, cups, glasses, utensils etc. Anna left us a kind note and some nice snacks to make us feel very welcome. We didn't get the chance to meet Anna in person but communication was great, we'll definitely try to stay there next time we are in the area and we highly recommend this place.
Great place and great hosts. We has a really nice stay. Much better than any hotel experience would have been. Thank you.
Studio was great! Clean & mellow - just what we needed for a one night stay while we were in town. Actually liked not having a TV - made for a more relaxing night. My wife also loved the decor & the bday note from our host Anna. Very thoughtful. Would definitely stay here again - thanks, Anna!
Two of us stayed in Anna and RJ's studio for 4 nights. The studio was clean, private, quiet, and perfect for our stay in Ventura. Their suggestions for places to eat, visit, and run were excellent. Anna was prompt in her communications by email and text. The little extras like granola bars and Peet's coffee were a pleasant and unexpected surprise. We would highly recommend staying with them if you're in Ventura. We had a great stay!!
Anna was a great host and went out of her way to meet our needs. The place was warm and inviting even with snacks, water and good coffee. It was nice to have our own private entrance into our place and we enjoyed having more space than a hotel. It was a nice quiet place and close to where we needed to go. Thanks again Anna!
The place was perfect. It's very private and quiet. I only wish I had time time to relax on the patio with a beverage....I was in Ventura for a conference at the at the Marriott and I was terribly busy. The bungalow was a wonderful retreat at the end of several long days. Instructions were quite clear for arriving. While I didn't meet Anna in person, she was great to communicate with via text and was super accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.
We had a great 1-night stay in this charming bungalow. Very private setup, and peaceful neighborhood. The bungalow is arranged such that we could be flexible on arrival & departure with a separate entrance. Beautiful space: charming, very clean, bright, and comfortable. We'd certainly come back!
