Description

The Space

A crisp, calm and comfortable space with private entrance and full bath 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.

Recently renovated with a nod towards clean lines and gracious living the main Guest Suite features a firm memory foam topped queen bed with Frette Italian linens, pillows to choose from, a 42" flat screen TV with Basic Cable, NetFlix, WiFi and large mini fridge stocked with water and a few extras. (smile)

* The suite is perfect for 2, but if you are traveling with a 3rd or 4th member or simply wish for two bedrooms, a tastefully decorated separate bedroom with clean and comfy REAL full size bed (not a pull out or futon) 36" tv, AND its own private entrance is available in an adjoining room; shared bath with your suite. ( yes extra towels provided! - smile).'

IF YOU WISH TO USE THE SECOND BEDROOM FOR ONLY 2 GUESTS PLEASE BOOK FOR 3 PERSONS - this helps with the costs of additional laundry, etc and only adds $20 to your booking fees - a great value!

( I only host one party at a time and for some silly reason Airbnb won't let me list my space as 2 bedrooms - sigh)

Private entrance with a keypad lock for easy in and out access without the hassle of a key!

A semi private courtyard with outdoor furnishings avails itself as a place to enjoy a bite to eat or simply relax.

Safe street parking and potential garage parking so as to secure surf boards, kayaks etc.

Over the years I have enjoyed many fine hotels and I try and offer a similar experience to my guests. Everything you need, from fluffy white towels to Qtips, is provided.

Of note one very mature outdoor (daytime) indoor nighttime cat is around and about in the shared main living areas but never never in the guest areas; interaction is at your discretion. I don't believe you will ever sense the her presence unless you choose to meet "the princess".

**Please note you are renting a guest suite with private entrance - not an entire house **

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.

On the back patio a large gas BBQ is available if you feel like getting your grill on!

A professionally maintained 'softtub' 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!

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

* Depending on schedules early arrival and late departure may be available and are handled on a case by case basis. *

Guest Access

Guests are welcome anywhere on the main floor of the residence - including the living room with a 70" tv and a classy mix of modern and vintage furnishings, 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.

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

*** BREAKFAST ~ For your enjoyment in the Chef's kitchen you will find a coffee maker & Starbucks coffee, assorted teas (and my fab vintage tea cup collection) a selection of yogurt, cottage cheese, breakfast cereals Oat nut bread, jam ( my fav apricot and Bonne Marie Raspberry) and fresh fruit - For the most part breakfast is DIY (make your own).

But if I am around and our schedules mesh I love to make pancakes!! ( ok and bacon too)

Laundry facilities are available if you are here for a few days or in an emergency - please ask as the machines are crazy High Efficiency and require their own brand of fancy detergent which I have available!

Interaction with Guests

Your privacy and comfort are tantamount, I enjoy socializing when I am en residence if it suits you and our mutual schedules; in my absence my housekeeper will make sure your needs are tended to.

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 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 Joes 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!
