Ventura's location between the Los Padres National Forest and the Pacific Ocean, coupled with two of California's longest open flowing rivers, make for an ideal escape for outdoor adventure. Just off shore, the Channel Islands National Park is an all-natural playground for those interested in whale watching, hiking, camping, diving, kayaking through sea caves and walks led by naturalists.
The Ventura coast possesses its own vast stretches of beautiful, uncrowded beaches; popular surf spots; harbor cruises; a 13-mile coastal bikeway, as well as Ventura Harbor's festive shops, restaurants, family entertainment and the National Park Visitors Center. Meanwhile, Ventura's Historic Downtown Cultural District offers a mix of pleasing architectural styles in which you will find distinctive inns, boutiques, restaurants and antique shops.
Downtown also features an array of galleries, artisans and stage performances offering big talent in intimate settings. Historical highlights include Mission San Buenaventura, the Albinger Archaeological Museum and the Museum of Ventura County. City walking tours including the ever-popular "ghost hunts" are a popular activity. Discover a relaxed, eclectic and artsy side of California that you will not find elsewhere.
Ojai (OH-hi) is situated in a small, east-west valley about 15 miles from Ventura and the Pacific coast, surrounded by citrus groves, oak trees and the protective Santa Ynez Mountains. The town settles down into its valley like eggs into a bird's nest, giving credence to some people's contention that its name means "nest" in the Chumash Indian language.
If you've only got a day, take a leisurely stroll among the arcade shops and along the streets branching off from Ojai Avenue (which is also Hwy 150). You'll find art galleries, boutique clothing shops, several places to eat and the tasting room for Casa Barranca Winery, the first certified organic winery on the Central Coast.
For a little more active day, go horseback riding with Western Trail Rides or rent a bicycle from Bicycles of Ojai (108 Canada Street) and pedal the 16-mile paved path that runs from Ojai's Libbey Park all the way to the beach in Ventura.
You'll likely be done with Ojai after spending a full day there, so after breakfast on your second day, you'll have time for a leisurely drive home. Highway 150 going northwest toward Santa Barbara is a very scenic drive around Lake Casitas, through pastoral countryside and past avocado groves. From there, you could continue north on Hwy 192, skirting the eastern edge of Santa Barbara, then follow Hwy 154 north through the Santa Ynez Valley, connecting with US 101.
Take Hwy 150 the other direction and you'll climb to some scenic vista points overlooking the valley to Santa Paula, where you can take Hwy 126 back toward Ventura and points south or follow 126 the other way to I-5. Hwy 33 leads through the Los Padres National Forest and toward the Central Valley.
Whatever your passion, there's always something to do in Santa Barbara, which combines big city culture with backwoods outdoor adventures, all set off by a culinary tradition that puts its name and flavors on the lips of food and wine critics across the country.
Love the outdoors? Ride horses, wind or waves! Patron of the arts? Explore our galleries and year-round arts events. Shopping? Food? Wine? Wellness? Family fun? It's all here, to explore on your own or with guided tours, served up in a laid-back elegance that's distinctively Santa Barbara.
Founded by Danish-Americans in 1911, Solvang means Sunny Fields in Danish and has plenty of old-world charm and a definite Northern European feel (no passport required). Surrounded by the vineyards of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country, Solvang is a special gem in the heart of Santa Barbara County and California’s Central Coast.
No visit to Solvang is complete without enjoying a Danish favorite called aebleskiver–light and airy pancake balls (pronounced aye-bell-ski-ver). The name may lead you to believe there are apple slices inside—and in many places of Denmark, that is how they are served; but in Solvang, the tradition is aebleskiver dusted with powdered sugar and served with raspberry jam. Legend has it that when Vikings were roaming up and down the coasts of Europe they used their dented horn helmets and shields to cook their favorite pancakes—which turned out round!
The Chumash Casino Resort is located some 5 miles (8.0 km) to the east of Solvang in the Santa Ynez Indian Reservation near Santa Ynez. Opened in its present form in August 2003, the casino consists of a 94,000-square-feet (8,730 m2) gaming area with slot machines and table games. A 106-room hotel and spa opened in July 2004. In 2006, the Casino estimated that there were (phone number hidden) visitors to the Casino and 34,049 guests in the hotel, nearly all of them from Southern California.

Rex was a great host and was waiting for us when we arrived. He gave us a tour of the house and showed us where towels and sheets/blankets were located. After a few parting words, he left. We didn't have any problems. Beds were comfortable, sheets clean. House was very clean over all. Great AirBNB!
We had a wonderful stay at this place. Nancy was hospitable. She spent time to walk through the entire process. Very safe neighborhood. House was kept very clean. Rex/Nancy almost provided everything, right from drinking water to wine. My only request would be provide more cookware for cooking. They had free wi-fi, Netflix and over above what a gorgeous neighborhood they have. Surrounded by hills, trails but beach is not that close. High recommended.
The hosts met us when we arrived and showed us around the house. We were about a 10 minute drive to the beach.
My friends and I enjoyed our stay at this Ventura home. It was the perfect size for the 3 of us. The home was very close to all of the activities we enjoyed. It's close to downtown where we enjoyed shopping and dining and it was a short drive to Ojai which we enjoyed as well. We also drove into Camarillo and again, it was an easy short drive. Rex (the homeowner) was very courteous and helpful and answered every email I sent him almost immediately. I had some questions while we were there and he replied right after I sent the email every time. Rex was a great host! Also, this home is very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this home.
Comfortable home in a quiet neighborhood. Clean and nicely appointed. Thank you Rex, for making our stay enjoyable.
Rex's place is very close to being a great AirBnB place. I bet that if Rex stayed there with only a travel size piece of luggage for 3-4 days the place would be dialed in. Good location in Ventura, working class neighborhood but not far from anything if you have a car or bike. Not really walkable. The main picture with view is not from Rex's place and it is NOT a Beach House, but a well kept house in an older housing development.
Thank you for the review. Since you're driving, you probably didn't notice that the bus stop is only 5 min walking distance. There is also a hiking and biking place nearby connected to the beach. Try to fit in the walking schedule aside from your all day surfing next time! The main picture is the hill view nearby in our beach house neighborhood. I can point out where to bike/hike/walk if you ask. As advertised, this neighborhood is in the quiet area not the downtown. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I would gladly responding to your question prior to booking -- also please inform any additional guest next time!
Rex did a fantastic job of making us feel at home from the time that we arrived. One little item that I like was that he left sticky notes throughout the entire house, just like an operating manual, on how to get around and use his residence. In addition to the house, the neighborhood was fantastic and the views were beautiful of the surrounding area. I even took advantage of the views on our last night to view the lunar eclipse.

Ventura is the place I call home, I came into that conclusion after traveling to many places. Great place for singles, couples and groups. Short drive to everywhere, beach life, close knitted neighborhood and small town. You also can't beat the sunny and warm weather all year, averaged at 70 F.
Hotel phobia has caused me to decide to rent part of my place out. Clean towels, beds and pillows smell way nicer than the benefit of the doubt. The ability to use kitchen freely without to pay an extra bucks is also something.
I keep a very clean and well appointed home. I'm the kind of Host that always available by phone or email for all my guests. Feel free to send me a message and I'll respond right away.
When I'm not playing Host, I work as a civil engineer and a good family man. I tend to keep busy. I love traveling, and visited many places with my wife.
If this is your first time, or millionth time, visiting Ventura, you can't find a better place to stay.
Looking forward to hosting you on your travels.
