Staycation or Work/Sheltering-in-Place? Walk everywhere as you safely distance in our grand 1892 Victorian, the Arabella, just blocks from the beach and historic downtown Ventura.

Stroll to the pier, local eateries, and watering holes offering distance dining and to-go service.

The Arabella includes 3 bedrooms & 3 baths outfitted with luxury beds, cozy linens, eclectic furnishings, and complimentary WiFi.

The space
Our Main Street location means the bells of City Hall, a distant train and the hum of downtown make up the soundtrack during your stay. It also means an array of delicious eateries, bars, beaches, Patagonia's flagship store and cultural spaces are all truly within walking distance. Enjoy the Ventura Pier, San Buena Ventura Mission, Ventura County Museum, Rubicon Theatre and downtown Ventura.

Come park your car and spend your holiday exploring our seaside town on foot or take a day jaunt to nearby Santa Barbara and Ojai - just a 30minute car ride ... Or ferry out to explore the Channel Islands.

Outfitted with a television, gameboards, books and walking directions to our favorite local spots, we invite you to escape the 24-hour news cycle, unplug and unwind in our Victorian treasure.

Guest access
Two parlors, a dining room, and a simplified service kitchen promise plenty of space for coming together. The kitchen includes an original 1880s stovetop with 4 electric burners and 1 petite electric oven. Affectionately referred to as "the White Whale" the stove and oven have a large footprint but will not accommodate large game birds or large pizzas. There is also a farm sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave along with pots, pans, serving ware, and a few pantry basics.

Finish penning your screenplay in the study. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the front porch or get lost in a novel in the garden.

Off-street parking for two cars per stay in addition to street parking.
Complimentary Wifi and laundry facilities.

Other things to note
Like most historic homes in our breezy town, there is central heat but no air conditioning.

The yard is shared with the SWELL Studio which may or may not be occupied during your stay. For larger groups, the SWELL hosts two guests and may be rented for full reign of the property.

Per City Ordinance, QUIET hours are between 10:00p.m. and 7:00a.m and are strictly enforced.

After spending many years in the Los Angles area, our family discovered Ventura and dropped anchor. Tucked between ocean and mountains, Ventura life offers something for everyone from hiking to surfing to theater and community happenings. Our beautiful weather, laid back but spirited beach community and lively historic downtown all promise a memorable getaway. We look forward to welcoming you!
