About This Listing
Stay in our cozy 2nd floor cottage with ocean views & breezes & right out to Anacapa Island. This perfect location is the best way to see all of Ventura. A seven minute walk to the beach is just what you need each day & that is just the beginning...
The cottage is a separate self-contained upstairs apartment with a full kitchen, bathroom, Queen bed and couch. This is not anyone's residence; the apartment is set up for YOU our guest! In this upstairs cottage you can relax and drink your morning coffee or sip wine at sunset while looking out at the ocean. There is a private area to sit outside with a table that can be propped up at your leisure. This cottage offers a cozy spot to sleep in or be active and stroll to the beach. All within walking distance you can enjoy the Pacific Ocean, grab some fish tacos on the pier, and shop away in downtown Ventura. You can stop into a local brewery or winery or even shuck oysters right down by the beach just a seven minute walk away if that is your fancy.
The front home is being remodeled so please excuse our dust as you enter the property. We are cognizant of you being on vacation & try our best to do any construction while you are not on property, where possible. However, if there is a major project that will be done during your stay I will reach out in advance. The expected completion date is August. Thank you.
Includes all items of a full kitchen; stove, oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, dishes, pans. All items necessary for cooking, including oil, salt & pepper. Also a coffee pot (including coffee, cream, sugar, tea). I also will provide you with some breakfast items such as pancake mix, fruit, milk, juice, eggs, bagels to make your stay a great one! There are also some stools if you choose to dine in.
Living Area-Includes a Queen bed with quality linens & pillows. A TV with Directv and the platform swivels so you can also watch while on your couch.
To get to know Ventura I've placed local papers, maps, and travel brochures at your fingertips. You can also give me an idea of what you would like to do and I'm happy to give suggestions in advance:)
There is also a heater, ceiling fan, and full length mirror.
Check out my Guidebook for some great local recommendations.
The basics-Shower, Toilet, & Sink area. Providing towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, hair dryer...and of course toilet paper:)
The property is gated & safe and you need a code to enter. The cottage is above the garage with its own separate entrance (all guests use the same main entrance). Your private outside space has chairs & a table to enjoy the weather.
There is a dresser & a nightstand with drawers where your items can be placed. Along with a closet & hangers for your clothes.
Washer/dryer along with detergent (at the bottom of the stairs)
Extra shower & hand towels in dresser
Ice chest with ice packs to take to beach
*Throughout the summer there is a 3 night minimum; however when there are gaps between reservations a 2 night stay will be accepted. Please inquire for all options.
**This listing is not pet friendly, sorry**
What does your cleaning fee cover?
The fee covers 3 hours of cleaning time which includes washing all linen (separate loads for towels vs. bedding), disinfecting the entire bathroom & kitchen. Making sure all bathroom & kitchen items are restocked. All areas are dusted, vacuumed, mopped & rechecked multiple times. We make sure the cleaning is detailed after each guest to prepare for the next & understand how important cleanliness is. We don't contaminate areas for example we would never use the same sponge to clean the sink that we used to clean the toilet. We know that you will notice the attention to detail.
This cottage is setup with everything that you will need to make your stay feel like your home away from home.
You may also use the laundry facilities so when you get home you only have the memories of Ventura and not your dirty laundry!
Interaction with Guests
The main house is also on the property. My Mother and Stepfather live there. You will both use the same front entrance. However, there is a separate and private entrance upstairs to the cottage. Upon booking you will receive the security code to gain access and directions to the apartment key. Let us know if there is anything you need.
My favorite part of the property is the smell of the ocean and waking up and looking out at Mother Nature and knowing that life is short and that we need to make each day count! Ventura has so many options for the very active and for those that just want to relax.
The property is located up on a hill; which is why you have such great views. Amtrak runs behind the property & the location is right off the freeway.
Ventura is conveniently located near the Santa Barbara & Los Angeles Airport. You can also take the Amtrak and the stop is a mile away. If you are driving up the beautiful coast it is right off the 101 freeway & parking is available on the street. There's a local free trolley which stops at the nearby Pier and goes to various areas of interest between the Ventura Harbor and Historic Downtown to many shops and restaurants. There is also a welcome center in downtown that can provide you with highlights of Ventura, whale watching tours, wineries, missions, there is so much to do! Downtown is walkable or you can bike~it's about 1.5 miles from the cottage. Or you can Uber or we may be able to drop you off too, just ask.
Other Things to Note
We have beach towels, bikes, boogy boards, ice chest so you can enjoy your day at the beach! Don't forget your sunscreen! Even though I have been in hospitality for many years this is my first time in this type of venture. So I am trying my best to provide to you a local yet luxury experience. I would appreciate you letting me know what else I should add or fix before you post it in a review. I truly do want your experience to be unforgettable!
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just need some R&R have fun and enjoy what we love about Ventura. Please respect our non-smoking policy. We would like to discourage any sort of open flames such as candles etc. Finally, follow the city's QUIET TIME ordinance which forbids parties and loud social events between 10:00 PM to 7:00 AM per SBMC §(phone number hidden)(i). Just the basics-The Golden Rule.

Queen bed & couch in Living Area. Swivel the TV to either side so you can spread out. Providing local Ventura area information.
We had the pleasure of visiting Sabrina's place. It was more than great, we just got engaged so Sabrina provides vine and another great surprise when we arrived.
On top of that Sabrina is a very warm and welcoming person, a perfect host.
On top of that, we met Sabrina's moms husband who was hugely welcoming and very friendly.
The view from the apartment is great, the room was clean as a hotel room.
Well everything was a great experience
Sabrina made us feel right at home. The cottage was clean, stocked with food and had a beautiful ocean view. She even left us a bottle of wine and flower peddles on the bed as it was our honeymoon. We would definitely stay here again. One of the most enjoyable Airbnb experiences I've had.
Sabrina was very welcoming. The apartment was clean and in good condition. She kindly left us some food to make breakfast and some beach towels. We had a lovely and comfortable time.
We found the location, space, and host to be top-notch. Quiet neighborhood, small-ish cottage. Sabrina made a great effort to make us feel welcome and responded politely and promptly to minor issues we faced with sink maintenance. Great value.
Sabrina was great, reservation was easy to make. She kept in contact the whole time and even asked how our stay was going while we were there. The room was nice and spacious and clean with amenities. We will definitely come back!
Upon arrival we were greeted by a very clean studio, a snack, and a lovely note. The accommodations were just what anyone would need away from home! Nice bathroom, full kitchen, couch, (we used it to put our stuff) cable TV, wonderful view, and a comfy bed. The studio, which sits atop a garage, was conveniently close to the beach and downtown. Thank you!!
The space was great, very private but close to a lot of the dining and activities we used in Ventura. Spacious apartment including even a full kitchen.
Sabrina was very responsive and accommodating and even provided some food in the kitchen which meant we were able to have a nice breakfast at the apartment on Sunday.
We'll definitely be back and would recommend this property to any friends looking to stay in the area, this place made our stay in Ventura that much more enjoyable.

About the Host, Sabrina
Live, Love, Laugh! I love to travel and live like a local anywhere I go! With my 8 years of luxury hospitality experience I want to make your trip to Ventura everything you imagined! I understand that each guest has a unique set of reasons about why they want to explore Ventura and I want to help exceed your expectations.
That could be from a visit where you may be looking for peace or privacy or one seeking adventure at the beach, islands, restaurants, and exporing the California culture. Whatever your reason I will help to make it happen...just ask.
I was born & raised in California so I can give you a native's perspective on how to best enjoy our piece of paradise:)
