  • Very lovely, small, private cottage. The hubby and I had a lovely time here as well as our two labs. Sandra was able to host us at the very last minute of our trip. The cottage is steps away from the main house, separated by a lovely outdoor garden. There is a tree house guests are welcome to use unfortunately we didn't have the time to enjoy. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was plenty roomy and kitchen was useful (hosts stocks up the fridge with goodies). Extra pet bowels for your pets. Would definitely stay here again. We met Sandra on the first day of check in and didn't see her after that, so if you're worried about privacy, you'll pretty much have it.

  • We had a great time at the lovely Hummingbird Cottage in Ventura. The garden and cottage are private, charming and beautiful and I just loved the treehouse. The garden has lush plants, a swing, fountain and fantastic views of both the ocean and the green mountains. The backyard provided plenty of room for our dogs to play and the fountain creates a serene soundscape. The location is great and there are plenty of shops and restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk of the cottage. Sandra was a fabulous host. Check-in/Check-out was a breeze and she left fresh fruit and snacks in the cottage for our arrival.

  • Sandra's Hummingbird Cottage was perfect! It's a small one bedroom with a good sized bathroom, small living room and kitchen. Her back yard was amazing and complete with a tree house! So cute! The view was breath taking and it was very peaceful. My husband and our two pitbulls had a wonderful time hiking and playing at the beach! It's a very close walk to down town Ventura. There are a lot of great wine bars and other restaurants too! We will definitely be coming back. Thanks Sandra!!

  • This was a pleasant place to stay. It fairly oozes with charm and has all the amenities. Sandra is a good host, who provides goodies, helpful hints and suggestions about things to do. The quarters are tight though. If you have the inside position in the bed next to the wall, you have to crawl over the other person to get out of bed. If you are large or an older person, this might be an issue. Also, on a warm night there is a fair amount of traffic noise from the road below the bluff. A big plus is that downtown Ventura is just a short walk away with restaurants and some live music. Overall, we had a really nice time!

  • Everything was as described but the cottage was smaller than expected.

  • Sandra was really nice and the place was great. Short walk from main street/the beach & there is a nice garden/patio. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

  • We absolutely loved this place. LOVED! We had the whole backyard to ourselves and couldn't have asked for a more lovely host. Sandra greeted us with fruit and cookies and offered bagels for each morning (my boyfriend is gluten-free so we didn't take her up on them). The little house was just perfect and we're still talking about it a month later. And the treehouse - now that's just fun even when you're an adult. The only complaint - we wanted to hang with her little dog Oliver more! :-)

    We want to come back and stay longer. This was the perfect, idyllic location for our quick trip to Ventura and I recommend it to anyone.

  • Sandras little cottage is just the perfect romantic / relaxing hideout.
    Birds were flying around in the little garden and were drinking and bathing in the fountain.
    It was really lovely!

    Sandra herself seemed very busy all the time though, would've been great to have some conversations with her about the place and city.

  • We really enjoyed our time in Sandra's cottage. She was very kind and the cottage was well stocked with fruit and goodies. Everything was very clean.
