Mariel has a homey little apartment. Good location near the beach. She was very accommodating regarding check-in and check-out.
Mariel's home is lovely and just as described / photographed. We had a wonderful time staying in Ventura, just a couple of blocks from the sand!
When we arrived, Mariel had welcomed us with fresh flowers, a note, chocolate and a bottle of wine—a great start to our relaxing vacation.
What a cool apartment! Add in the awesome host, location and neighbors and you have a great place to stay. We would have loved to hang out in the courtyard more but the days earlier activities left us wiped out (sunburnt!) Many thanks to the gentleman's recommendation of the locally brewed Dark IPA. Wonderful! If you find yourself in Ventura someday, find yourself here.
Great space, very close to the beach in Ventura. We enjoyed getting to know Mariel prior to the stay via text and her help during the stay was incredible. Would recommend this space to anyone. Mariel works hard to insure her guests are happy and satisfied.
As the description suggests, Mariel's apartment is super cute! Although I didn't get to meet her, Mariel was very communicative and I had no problems finding her place or getting into the apartment.
The apartment itself is clean, cozy, and in a great location right by the water. There is free street parking right outside. Mariel went to great detail to make me feel at home and upon my arrival, found a bottle of wine, bar of chocolate, flowers, and a personal note welcoming me to her home! I was only there for one night, but Mariel was accommodative of my schedule and allowed for a late checkout.
Overall, if you want a peaceful nights sleep and be both right by the water and within a few miles of downtown Ventura, I highly recommend Mariel's apartment.
Super cute. Super cozy. Great location and very clean. Not to mention the bottle of wine and chocolate left for us for our stay!
Good location. Close to the beach and walking distance to restaurants. Place appears just like the pics. Easy check-in and check-out.
Exterior of apartment complex not shown and is a bit rundown.
Overall good experience, although I think it's a bit overpriced.
Enjoyed my stay at this Beach Bungalow - it's a 3-minute walk to the beach and Mariel was responsive and flexible in scheduling the check-in. I appreciated the little touches like flowers and a welcome message. I also liked the surprise visit from Hobbes, the cat!
Mariel was the best host I've stayed with yet. She left us a bottle of wine, fresh flowers and a cute note to welcome us to her place. Her apartment was so close to the beach and she gave us some great recommendations for a casual dinner nearby, which only took us 15 minutes to walk to. I'd recommend her bungalow to anyone!
My wife and I stayed here for a few days, it was amazing. Walks on the beach, close to great food and beautiful downtown Ventura. If you are coming through for the day don't stay in a hotel, stay here.
