Lovely self contained 'granny flat' apartment within our home. A calm, light filled space walking distance to the beach, Main St and Ventura's night life. Perfect for a stop on the central coast. Ask us about your small pet.
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. Brand new 100% wool carpets and updated marble finishings. Your own entrance opens to the garden, with established fruit trees, grass and patio.
Feel free to use our outdoor Malm fireplace, natural gas BBQ and picnic table, which has bistro lighting at night and wonderful candles. 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 - it does not have a full oven.
You have complete access to your own apartment, via the side pathway 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, or through the main house entrance if you wish. There are tons of street parking spots, but if you're on a trip and have loads of stuff in the car, you can park securely behind a gate in our private driveway.
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 for the most part. 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 afternoon sun nicely.
Train (Surfliner) station is within walking distance. We're close to the 101 for easy access.
Other Things to Note
NB: 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.
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!
A total steal. Angus and his family were incredibly warm, welcoming and flexible. My brother and I had the very best time. The location was perfect to downtown Ventura and a day trip to Ojai, the apartment had very recent renovations, exceptional privacy, and everything you would need to feel comfortable for your travels. The bed was very comfortable and we would both definitely return and look forward to staying with Angus again! Also, for dog lovers, should you want to have some puppy cuddle time, Daisy the French bulldog is one of the sweetest, most magnificent companions we have met!
Our weekend was wonderful. Angus was there when we arrived and showed us around the place. He pointed out some "don't miss" spots on a map of Downtown Ventura. What a cozy home-away-from-home for us! It was lovely with a great place to sit under the trees right outside our door. Angus was easy to communicate with. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials and treats. And . . . Ditto on Daisy. She's adorable. Definitely recommend for your trip to Ventura.
Great location, comfortable space, very welcoming host! This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to the beach as well as downtown Ventura.
Beautifully decorated, clean and well appointed flat in a great location. Angus was a very informative and responsive host, we felt very welcome and taken care of. We definitely fell in love with Daisy the dog, she is a character!
Great place!! Clean, comfortable, well kept, and central to so much. Angus and Jenny made us feel at home right from the start. I would recommend this spot to anyone coming to Ventura.
Angus was so welcoming and the apartment was great! He was so kind to check in to see if we needed anything and gave great dinner/evening plan recommendations! The location was perfect as it is walking distance to downtown and also very close to the water. The amenities are great too! I would definitely stay here again. Also, if you're lucky enough to run into Daisy the dog, she is the cutest thing ever. Thanks Angus!
This is such a sweet spot to stay in Ventura! The bedroom, kitchenette, and bathroom are all beautiful and comfortable. And the location is IDEAL. Walk to main street and parks and the beach and street parking was super manageable. It was a lovely experience!
Jenny and I LOVE Ventura - and have travelled extensively around the US and rest of the world. Our small family includes Daisy, our french bulldog & our daughter, growing up fast. Jenny is a pediatrician & Angus runs an ice cream business.
Angus is originally from Bristol, England and Jenny is born and raised in So Cal. We look forward to meeting you and / or welcoming you to your home away from home with us.
