About this listing
Self contained 'granny flat' style apartment on the ground floor of our home. A calm & very tastefully appointed space that's walking distance to the beach, Main St and Ventura's restaurants. Ask us about your small pet. Registered & licensed with the City of Ventura.
Registered & licensed with the City of Ventura, our home is extremely unique and well designed, we have a downstairs 'granny flat' or apartment that's separated from the main house by a barn door. Sensational, soft 100% wool carpets and updated marble fittings in the kitchen and bathroom. Your own entrance opens to the garden, with established fruit trees, grass and patio.
There is a full size BBQ and an outdoor Malm fireplace in a cozy sitting are underneath our sequoia. Bistro lights will help you see to top up your glass of wine.
We're walking distance to ALL of the main attractions. We will point you to all the best restaurants & there is a Redbox / Circle K within 1 minute's walk to rent a DVD for the 32" flatscreen.
We provide fruit, beer, snacks, coffee, tea, milk, orange juice & 1/2 a loaf of bread for your arrival. The kitchenette has a microwave, toaster / toaster oven & kettle - NB: it does not have a full oven.
We have tried to price the space under the standard indicated by AirBNB (including the City's 10% tax) in the hopes that we exceed your expectations. If something is not 5* for your expectations please let us know in advance - we can fix most anything.
You have complete access to your own apartment, via the side pathway & stairs from the street. The apartment includes the bedroom (naturally) a full bathroom and kitchenette. Your own entrance is down a pathway to the side of the house, It is a little rustic so not ideal for the infirm. There are tons of street parking spots.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like. We have a small family, and for the most part it's very quiet - nanny and our toddler are around during the day, and sometimes out in the garden but will leave you to your own devices. Daisy The Dog (see the pictures) may come sniffing around, but will leave you alone. Both Angus and Jenny can point you in the right direction for all Ventura has to offer.
Centrally located downtown, and close to Ventura's amazing restaurants, beaches, nightlife - we're in a very good spot to enjoy all of those things. The sea air is close, but not too 'wet'. We're protected from the winds that can blow along the coast, yet capture the morning and early afternoon sun nicely.
Train (Surfliner) station is within walking distance. We're close to the 101 for easy access.
Other Things to Note
A) The flat is attached to our house, so a certain amount of interaction is inevitable. Ventura's an awesome place to visit the central coast - loads of amazing food, bars, bands etc.
B) The garden service comes on Tuesday afternoons after 2pm PLEASE keep the windows and doors closed to prevent a dust storm in your room.
C) We normally have a couple of cold beers & / or bottle of wine in the fridge for your arrival, if you would like these removed for whatever reason please let me know.
No smoking (of anything) inside the house, though the patio area is OK for medicinals. Please check with us before booking about your pets - they must be OK with our super mellow French Bulldog, Daisy. A cleaning deposit of $100 is required for all pets due to the wool carpets. We hope to refund it!
Your bedroom area - with a sensational mattress, and high quality linens. Plenty of relaxation and cable 32" flat screen.
Our second stay with Angus was as wonderful as our first. A charming studio with separate kitchen and bath, spotless, charming, cozy--a sense that your hosts had made a special effort to make your experience a memorable one. Beautiful patio to enjoy morning coffee or wine at night. Angus is the perfect host--responsive, respectful of our privacy, and knowledgeable about how to find great Thai food or a killer morning muffin. Our highest recommendation
Great place...location is awesome right by cool shops and walkable to the beach! Host was great, he explained everything and had the place with a great stock of snacks and cold drinks! That was much appreciated. The family lives right above this studio in the house. The studio is very comfortable and clean. Parking was easy just outside in front of the house. I really appreciated this place.
The hospitality went above and beyond the listing description. Angus gave us a warm welcome and left a couple of small and thoughtful anniversary gifts for us (as the trip was for our anniversary). This listing is beautiful and well-put-together, roomy enough for two people, quiet despite proximity to a main thoroughfare, and walking distance from everything you might want to do in downtown Ventura. We walked to the beach, Ventura Pier, Grant Park, the county fairgrounds, and restaurants along Main Street and Santa Clara all within ten minutes. We were really happy with our stay.
Angus is a wonderful host - very communicative, thoughtful, helpful with recommendations for dining, etc., and extremely flexible. The property is very comfortable for 2 people and has a great location on a quiet residential street walking distance from downtown Ventura, restaurants and the beach.
Clean and comfy. There are generous amenities provided and Angus is an attentive friendly host. Recommended!
Great location the apartment was beautifully decorated and the kitchen had everything we needed, Angus was a great host, we had a BBQ outside that we used to cook dinner. Daisy the French bulldog was amazing to hang out with definitely will stay here again!
It could not have been better! Our stay in Ventura was just great. The apartment is situated on a very nice and private lot. In the evening you can sit outside and enjoy the BBQ :-)
The apartment was very well equipped. Everything you need was available. The host: Angus and his wife Jenny, were at all times very friendly, helpful and so nice. And we loved the DOG :-) Daisy was so funny and lovely !!!!
We spent one week in Ventura and in the apartment. It was such a great time and we will be back for sure. Beautiful home, great hosts, perfect holiday! We would book again and again......
