Other Things to Note
The mighty Pacific Ocean is only 15 minutes away in nostalgic Ventura, and beautiful Santa Barbara is only a 45 minute scenic ocean drive.
I showed up in the evening, and it was easy to see Toni's beautiful, fanciful front garden. I was greeted at the door and quickly shown to my well appointed, pleasantly breezy upstairs room.
Everything worked great. The room I stayed in had a tub (no shower), but that was fine because it filled up quickly and was as hot as I needed.
The dogs are all well behaved and sociable, and not in the way. I wanted to adopt at least a couple of them.
Tom & Toni where lovely hosts. They welcomed me with open arms, shared their lovely home which was most restful and enjoyable. They were very helpful in sharing information on the area.
Toni and Tom were great to stay with, their house is full of activities and warmth with 6 tiny dogs, pool, jacuzzi, and a game room area.
The room is separated from the rest of the house for privacy and there's great breezes and communication with them was a breeze.
Toni and Tom were an absolute pleasure to stay with. They are within walking distance from the main downtown drag, which meant we could walk to all the restaurants, thrift shops, bars and bakeries we could possibly want. Their house is stunning. There is a beautiful bathtub imported from Mexico in the upstairs unit as well as a private patio, and the entire house is covered in local artwork. It's classy, spunky and artistic- which matches the qualities of the hosts perfectly. Their outdoor space was much larger than I expected, and we spent an entire afternoon lounging by the pool. They have 6 little dogs, (or was it 8?) which is intense when you first meet them all together, but they are all sweet dogs, and none of them were mean. You can watch the mountains turn purple from the window in the bedroom, and you can actually see the stars! Imagine that.
