Interaction with Guests
I am happy yo meet the guests at the home and give them any information they need about the area or help them arrange any activities. I am also available to provide wine tasting tours to the Santa Ynez Valley if any guests are interested.
This is a quiet residential neighborhood on a hillside overlooking Ventura. The back yard backs up to 80 acres of green space with a view out to the ocean and Channel Islands.
Everything in Ventura is close but a car is convenient or a bike to get to the beach.
Other Things to Note
This is a great area to come explore. There are plenty of beaches, bike trails and hikes. You can take a trip to the Channel Islands or go whale watching. This is a great town for surfing as well. Ojai is cute mountain town worth a day trip and Santa Barbara is a quick ride up the coast. The Santa Ynez wine county is gorgeous and just over an hours drive away.
This is a quiet neighborhood so I ask guests to respect that.
the City of Ventura STVR (Short Term Vacation Rental) noise ordinance that states ..."parties and large social events are forbidden between the hours of 10 p.m. and 7 a.m." I do not allow parties at the house and only the guests accepted on the reservation request are approved to occupy the home.
The City of Ventura levies a 10% bed tax on short term vacation rentals, (anything under 31 days). That has been included in the nightly rate quoted.
I do not have pets but would consider allowing them on a case by case basis. There is no smoking in the house but you are welcome to smoke on the outside patio.
This is a great location. Please come visit and enjoy your stay.
Carmen's house is beautiful, immaculate, and in a very quiet neighborhood in Ventura. The location is convenient to downtown Ventura (5 minutes by car) and Ojai (20 minutes max by car) and is close to beaches, and shopping and dining options. There are also hiking options in the area, and Carmen has provided a binder with information about the house, and maps and brochures about the area.
Her house is gorgeous and peaceful - the cover photo doesn't do it justice! It is filled with lovely artifacts and the patio with wind chimes and a view of the ocean is private and peaceful. The kitchen is fully equipt and the bedrooms with the attached baths are convenient for a number of guests. We were visiting the area with my two adult children to attend a wedding, and we had all of the space we needed to prepare for events and relax from the family chaos. I highly recommend Carmen's home.
Thank you Carmen!
Beautiful house and view, good communication and quick response form Carmen. Well stocked kitchen and appliances. Cozy furniture and beds. My only advice would be that this house is not great for small children as there are LOTS of fragile decorations at low levels. We felt like we had to have eagle eyes on our 2 young boys (crawler and a toddler)
This home was lovely, well equipped and very clean. We loved the back yard with its beautiful view of the ocean off in the distance. Carmen make the booking experience very easy and even allowed us to check-in early on the day of our arrival. We would certainly book this home again when visiting Ventura.
Carmen's house was exactly as described and immaculate when we arrived. Everything we needed was there, including such things as cooking spices, sugar, etc. While we did not have a chance to meet, Carmen was very welcoming in her emails, answering the few questions we had.
My two daughters and I arrived on a Sunday evening and left on Friday; thus, we did not have a chance to experience the neighborhood over a weekend. While we were there, however, it was nicely quiet. We especially loved the patio with its view down the valley to the ocean, water garden and wind chimes. We spent a lot of time there, catching up on each others' lives and thoughts.
This was my first experience with Airbnb and everything went very smoothly. As it turned out, one of my daughters had a major work report to complete which took up most of our first two days. Being in the house was a godsend in this situation (as opposed to a hotel) as she could work in several areas and not be bothered by the activities of the rest of us.
The reservation was canceled 88 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Carmen's house was very comfortable and the view from the backyard was beautiful. It was everything I expected from the ad. I will definitely stay here on any future visit to the Santa Barbara area, if she'll have me.
p.s. - It's very close to Spencer McKenzie's! World's best fish tacos!!!
Sehr schönes, großzügiges Haus, liebevoll eingerichtet. Auch die Außenanlage zeigt die Liebe zum Detail (Springbrunnen, ein leichter Gong im Wind). Sehr ruhig gelegen. Unseren Aufenthalt hier haben wir genossen! Vielen Dank Carmen!
