Interaction with Guests
*** 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.
No Smoking or Drugs please. No pets, though we may make exceptions for small dogs upon approval. No candles, lanterns or open flame of any kind. Please keep outdoor noise levels low. This is a very quiet suburban neighborhood.
Quiet hours (no parties/social events) between the hours of 10:00pm and 7:00am as per the City of Ventura short term rental code .
Please no arriving back to the room after midnight.
I have nothing to add that has not already been previously stated. The studio was exactly as advertised, well appointed and completely comfortable. I enjoyed the private patio and SoCal sunshine while finishing a work project.
Easy location to Ventura attractions and freeways.
Anna was nothing but responsive to my contact and questions.
Restorative and sweet 48-hours
Anna and RJ were responsive and also checked in on us while we were there to make sure that we had a contact while they were out of town over the weekend. The place was extremely private and just a wonderful place to stay. It is clean, quiet, and they left such a sweet message on a notebook together with treats and water. They are in a very quiet neighborhood close to restaurants and the beach. We were there for a friend's wedding and everything just worked out so wonderfully. Definitely recommend staying at Anna and RJ's.
Anna’s studio was private, ultra-clean and well equipped with many thoughtful and charming touches, including a private outdoor patio.
Anna also checked in to make sure that everything was going well once we had settled in.
The neighborhood was quiet and fun to walk around and check out landscaping.
We could walk to the gym, grocery store and a great bakery.
A great base from which to explore Ventura!
Not only was it a beautiful bungalow but it was easy to find and Anna was great to work with. Overall, we had a wonderful time and this place only added to our experience.
Anna was a perfectly pleasant host. we accidentally forgot to read the online house instructions and knocked on her door to check-in. she let us in, showed us around, and let us be shortly after. Not to mention she helped coordinate an engagement surprise for my new fiancè and I! No complaints about the place, it's neat, well stocked, and has the simple amenities we needed. It is not as close to Main Street and shopping as we had hoped so walking was not an option, but that was our fault for not specifically mapping it out before-hand. Easy enough to drive anyways.
Anna's bungalow is our new favorite stopover for our drives from San Diego to the Bay Area. Easy access (though I am too short to reach the gate pull) in a quiet neighborhood. We were greeted with water and Reese's PB cups and in the morning found snack bars and coffee waiting for us, which were much appreciated. The space is very comfortable and cute. It's near enough to downtown to drive out for a quick bite but far from the crowds. Unfortunately we were on a tight schedule and basically snuck in at night and out in the morning, but I could easily see spending a few days there. Definitely recommend a visit to Ventura and Anna's studio!
