Interaction with Guests
When the arrival date is two weeks away we contact our guests to arrange their arrival. We greet them… do a walk through and give them the key. We really enjoy meeting them.
Our neighborhood is old school California Beach…. everyone knows each other. It's a friendly, relaxed vibe. Less than 4 short blocks away you will be in our village. We have a Gastro Pub, Sushi Bar, Coffee House, Italian restaurant, and a fish and chips place…. also a very popular yogurt shop. Our Beach is 1 block from the house and very private. The bike path is right out the front door and can take you to the pier, one mile, and once there to a fabulous seafood restaurant and a taco shack. If you walk off the pier and go straight for 2 blocks you will be in the center of our downtown.
If you wanted to you would be able to park your car in the driveway and not get in it again until your departure date. You can walk or ride a bike to just about any thing you may need. Restaurants are 3 short blocks away. The grocery store is 1/2 mile from us. We have a Trolley that runs Wednesday thru Sunday…. it's free and will take you from down the street to the Harbor and to the Downtown. And our downtown, which is less that 2 miles away has everything from great restaurants to several pubs, boutiques, movie theater, museum, the mission and our Rubicon Theater which is well known for the Plays that are preformed there. The Harbor offers up restaurants, excursions over to the Channel Islands, fishing, a Carousel and Arcade, and a museum which houses a "hands on" tide pool exhibit.

Thank you for your intrest in our home. My husband Tom is a retired LA City Fireman. And I am a professional artist. We have been married almost 44 years and have 5 grown children and 10 grandchildren. Most of our kids live in Ventura and several are in education. Our dream was to own a home at the beach and we were lucky enough to find this house. We have lived here since 1996 and remodled just 6 years ago. We designed our home to be open, airy and comfortable.
Hopefully this gives you a feel for us. Let us know if you have more questions. .
We look forward to having you and your family enjoy our home.
