About this listing
This spacious two story ocean view home has two bedrooms with queen beds and adjoining bathrooms. The third bedroom has a single bed and adjoins a bathroom. The home is fully furnished and has a living room, family room dinning room and modern well equipped kitchen.
The house is spotless with welcoming views from the living room and kitchen to the back patio that looks out on 80 acres of green space with an ocean view to the Channel Islands. The area is quiet and peaceful, The house is close to a bike path that takes you to the beach or more intense ride that will take you to Ojai, a lovely mountain town. It is a five minute drive to downtown Ventura that is filled great shops, restaurants and entertainment. The Ventura Harbor is a 10 minute drive where you can catch a boat to the famous Channel Islands. Santa Barbara is a 35 minute drive north and the Santa Ynez Wine County only 40 minutes from there.
For parents with small children, there is a cactus garden in the back yard so children will need supervision. There are also a few fragile objects in the house that might need to be elevated out of the hands of little ones for safety. Short of that, my home and Ventura is a great place to visit and I know you will find it friendly and welcoming.
Guests have access to the entire house, a two car garage, washer and dryer, a fully furnished kitchen with oven, toaster, toaster oven, microwave, fridge, ice maker, blender, coffee and coffee maker, dinning room, and living space with three TV's, cable and internet. The house has three bedrooms, two with comfy queen beds and one with a twin bed. Fresh linens and towels are provided. The back yard has patio seating with lounge chairs and a BBQ grill perfect for sunset cookouts.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to meet the guests at the home and give them any information they need about the area.
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 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 and carefully dispose of refuse in the green outside garbage bin.
Ventura is a great location on the California coast. Please come visit and enjoy your stay.
