Description

The space

A crisp, calm and comfortable dwelling in what is known as "Mid Town" Ventura. A lovely community of mid century homes nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the rolling hills of Avocado and Citrus trees.

Guests have a PRIVATE ENTRANCE w/keypad lock ( code will be provided on the morning of check in) s via the Queen Beedroom - so no hassle with lost keys! Keys for the front door available with advance notice .

An elderly cat (19 & going strong) - Princess Decadent (DECA) lives at the residence but is not allowed in the guest bedrooms. The resident outdoor cat, Oscar, defender of home and castle may appear on the deck in in the yard. If you have cat allergies Please do not book here - the house and grounds are extremely well maintained but this is Deca's home and Oscars yard.

Due to the presence of Miss Deca - I am unable to host those traveling with other animals - this is non negotiable, so I respectfully ask that you don't ask to bring your pet(s).

My occasional presence (I have a suite and home office upstairs) and house staff are transparent and minimal/unobtrusive. My long term housekeeper is in on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to change sheets, provide fresh towels, tidy as your wishes and length of visit determine. There is a privacy lock between the 'guest wing' and main house and if the lock is engaged no one will disturb you. My landscaping requires weekly maintenance ( Monday's between 9 - 11). Same nice gentleman for over a decade - this is unfortunately non negotiable - and when you see all the rose bushes and lush landscaping you will understand!

Guest are welcome to enjoy their meals ( or set up laptops) at any number of tables, the cozy table in the kitchen, the dining room or several al fresco spots in the yard. Free WI Fi with a fast speed available throughout the house and yard.

On the back deck a large gas BBQ is available if you feel like getting your grill on! ( and there is an AWESOME local butcher shop about 3 minutes drive or 9 - 15 min walk)

A gorgeous built in concrete and glass fire pit provide further ambiance to the back deck.

A professionally maintained 'softub' hot tub is adjacent to the suites patio and is available for guest use. While secluded the hot tub is not completely private - skinny dipping is at your own discretion! ( although the manufacturer lists this unit as a 4 person model its best for just two adults)

Floors are all hardwood or tile for an allergen free environment.

** I offer a separate listing here on airbnb for JUST the guest suite 1 bedroom for those who don't need access to the kitchen and prefer absolute privacy. **

Guest access

There are two separate bedrooms - shared bath between the two bedrooms. All on the lower floor. (no stairs)

Queen bedroom, with its own mini fridge and 42" tv. Nightstands with USB plugs at the ready and of course yummy linens! Also a variable speed ceiling fan for those of you that find it just right. ( There is AC as well!)

The Double bedroom boasts its own 42" tv and of course nightstands and built in Led reading or mood lighting. Also a large mirrored closet. This guest room as an exterior door that leads right on to the beautiful back deck as well as access from the main house.

The living room/formal dining area offers a 70" tv and a classy mix of modern and vintage furnishings, 90" sofa, plenty of seating and large dining table to nosh at or set up your laptop while enjoying the calm oasis of of the backyard flora.

The large and well equipped modern Chef's kitchen is at your disposal ~ sometimes for that late night meal after a long day of traveling or in the morning before your day of sightseeing or event begins. Or to cook a holiday meal - yes - this kitchen has had the pleasure of more than a few airbnb guest making it their 'holiday headquarters'. 6 burner duel fuel stove, granite counter tops - think you get the idea!

There is table for 4 off the kitchen with wonderful lighting for breakfast ( or putting puzzles together!)

The basics for cooking are on hand, butter, oils, salts and spices. (yes mayo and ketchup and mustard too!) There are plates and pots and pans and gadgets galore!

Laundry facilities available for guests staying two or more nights; High Efficiency and require their own brand of fancy detergent which is on hand.

Interaction with guests

Your privacy and comfort are tantamount, I enjoy socializing if it suits you and our mutual schedules; I do love to play tour guide!

Online here at AirBNB I offer some insights into my favorite places in Ventura - just in case I'm not around to greet you personally - I provide maps and brochures and some fun local travel guides including the "Ghosts of the California Missions". ( do a bit of research on Richard Senate, Ventura for one of his fun tours.)

If you are here for an event like a bike or running event please let me know if I can help with logistics - my sister is an ironwoman and I am great at 'support staff'.

Mid Town provides a unique opportunity to sample all the best Ventura offers. 2-5 minutes to a bevy of beaches, yet not a lot of sand in your shoes; Quiet Calm but the nightlife of Main Street and environs beckon! Dining options galore, farmers markets Wed, Sat & Sunday should you be temped to 'eat like a local' .
Around the corner from the house you will discover a fantastic park, dog friendly and with a great children's playground.

A stroll ( or run) through this neighborhood provides not only great exercise but a fun glimpse into the 'small town beach lifestyle' that Venturians enjoy.

Some guests arrive by bicycle, others by train (often I can meet you at the station) most by car, the location is extremely freeway friendly. There are local buses and a free trolley that shuttles between the historical downtown area and the beaches.

!!!! PLEASE send a personal email note when you request a reservation - I appreciate the dialog and also appreciate prompt response to my emails. -

The neighborhood

A stroll ( or run) through this neighborhood provides not only great exercise but a fun glimpse into the 'small town beach lifestyle' that Venturians enjoy.

Within less than half a mile, a nice walk should you choose, you will find a large grocery store (Vons w/ Starbucks) a great donut shop, a Subway, and the plethora of dining and shopping options that abound at the Pacific View Mall. Trader Joe's specialty grocery sits adjacent to the mall.

Community Memorial Hospital is short walk away or a quick 2 minute drive should you have need or business there.

Around the corner from the house you will discover a fantastic park, dog friendly and with a great children's playground.

Within a 5 minute drive you can find yourself enjoying the ‘sand and surf’ at the local ‘Pierpont/ Seaward beach’ , San Buenaventura State Beach or Ventura Marina Beach/Park – which is known for its unique pirate theme children’s beach! ** Beach chairs, Towels and coolers are all available during your stay! **

Old town Main Street Ventura boasts of a cavalcade of antique/vintage shops and riches of live music venues avail themselves on the weekends. You will also find a first rate movie theater and lots of dining options! Main street can be found 5 minutes by car, (free parking in the well maintained city structure) or a rather inexpensive $10 cab/Uber ride (each way) if you choose to imbibe!

Getting around

Some guests arrive by bicycle, others by train (often I can meet you at the station) most by car,the location is extremely freeway friendly. There are local buses and a free trolley that shuttles between the historical downtown area and the beaches. Uber rides are plentiful, reliable and inexpensive!

Other things to note

!!!! PLEASE send a personal email note when you request a reservation - I appreciate the dialog and also appreciate prompt response to my emails. - Good, Clear Communication is very important to me - thanks for understanding! !!!!

PLEASE BOOK FOR THE ACTUAL AMOUNT OF PERSONS IN YOUR PARTY. I don't wish to financially discriminate against the quite business traveler who basically needs a nice place to sleep, or the couple that wishes to use the private entrance to the guest rooms and not be disturbed.

If your a party of four or more persons and are going to be taking over the entire house and wish to entertain other guests as well - I'm open to ideas, but ask that you pay for the privilege.

Water has become a luxury here in Southern California and thus by charging per guest I can better accommodate a wider range of guests. SMILE!

If you have no prior airbnb reviews be prepared for a few Q & A messages before I accept your booking - I know, I know - someone has to host you to get that first review - and often I'm willing to help.

Early check in and late check out are not usually available due to housekeeping time constraints.

One Last note - brought to you by the City of Ventura I am a LEGAL Airbnb hostess STVR #2200.

We loved our stay! The backyard was perfect for our two boys to run around, and there was a great park just around the corner.

Ann's place in Ventura was a dream to find. I was flying into the US and meeting with loved ones for Thanksgiving & had no where to do a Turkey Day. I found Ann's places and it was perfect. The second bedroom was great for family to crash for Thanksgiving night. The patio in the back was perfect for having a few friends over from the area I had not seen in ages and the space over all was great for my son - he loved the huge HD TV. The hot tub was stellar and the kitchen for Turkey Day cooking was perfect. Fully stocked and spacious. Only thing I would change is to lift or shift the table chandelier as I kept hitting my head on it. This may have been a me thing though as no one else did but I must have done it a dozen times. Also, was not sure which outside trash can was for which type of trash. Ann was super communicative and present virtually. For a brother, father & friend flying in from Afghanistan for Thanksgiving I could not have asked for a better place to make my holiday. Thank you Ann!!!

Ann was a wonderful host. She made sure everything went well and was very easy to communicate with. The house was very clean and comfortable. Ms. Deca (cat) was very friendly and an awesome greeter. Ann stocks up plenty of amenities including candy and beverages! Would recommend to anybody staying in Ventura.

Ann's midtown place is perfect with all the amenities you need. Has an elegant modern look with beautiful backyard landscaping. She is very easy to communicate with when needed. She provides you with a welcome manual and all the info about the beautiful city of Ventura upon arrival. Privacy was definitely given and I would recommend this place to anyone. I would definitely stay here again or any of her other Airbnb options just because Ann is a great host that pays attention to detail.

This was my first Airbnb experience and it could not have went any better! I booked this Airbnb last minute on a solo fishing trip in Ventura. The home is beautiful, the cat was super friendly, and the jacuzzi really felt great after fishing all day. I needed a quiet, peaceful place to unwind for a weekend and could not have been happier. Thanks again! :)

This place exceeded my expectations! This was my first Airbnb experience I couldn't have asked for a better place. If you ever decide to go visit SB or any other socal beaches I definitely recommend staying at Ann's. She was a wonderful host and made me feel at home. I will definitely be coming back again :)
