Stay in our cozy 2nd floor studio with ocean breezes and an amazing view of 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 studio is a separate self-contained upstairs apartment with a full kitchen, full bathroom, full bed and couch. This is not anyone's residence; the apartment is set up for YOU our guest! In this upstairs studio you can relax and drink your morning coffee or sip wine at sunset while looking at the ocean. This studio 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. And that is just day one!
The studio 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 apartment. Upon booking you will receive the security code to gain access and directions to the apartment key. You will have very little interaction with anyone as we want to respect your time with us. However, we will make sure that you are well taken care of! 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.
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 studio. 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 occassion or just need some R&R have fun and enjoy what we love about Ventura. Please respect our non-smoking policy and smoke outside while you enjoy the view. We would like to discourage any sort of open flames such as candles etc. Just the basics-The Golden Rule.
Had four great nights at Vista Del Mar. The hosts are very welcoming, the studio is clean, comfortable, and in a great location. I felt right at home upon arriving and hope to stay here again when I am back in the area... Fantastic!
We had three great nights in the Vista Del Mar studio. The room was exactly as shown, clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view. Sabrina left goodies for us in the refrigerator, a nice surprise. And every communication before and during was warm and welcoming. Many thanks to Sabrina and family for the hospitality!
We booked this Studio very last minute and could not have been more pleased with the location and Studio itself. Sabrina, Fred and Diane were wonderful and we felt very comfortable and relaxed the entire time we were there. The personalized welcome note and breakfast goodies in the refrigerator were such a nice surprise. The view of the ocean and the nice walks through the neighborhood were wonderful. Thank you very much for our wonderful stay in Ventura.
Sabrina and her parents were so welcoming and friendly and her place was clean and comfy. The view was gorgeous every morning and every evening. We would be glad to come back someday if time permits.
Great place...great view!
Quite neighborhood with easy parking.
Location was central to everything.
Had plenty of privacy, towels and space!
Very comfortable bed.
Will defiantly stay again next time we are in Ventura.
The Vista del Mar studio was wonderful! And even more beautiful in person! The check in process was extremely easy and Sabrina's parents were very friendly and helpful. I also loved that the studio was private but still with a great view! Thanks again!
My experience at the Vista Del Mar Studio was wonderful! Sabrina was very communicative and the check in process was very smooth. The apartment itself is much like a hotel room - but with a great kitchen. It was very roomy for two guests. It was very clean and the host graciously gave us many towels, extra toiletries and coffee. The location was perfect for the wedding we were attending. The apartment has a fantastic view of the sea. I would not hesitate booking this apartment again! Thanks again to Sabrina for the wonderful stay.
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:)
I look forward to your visit to Ventura soon!
