Hi dears,

We enjoyed your lovely weather and beautiful sunsets the last few days...and the new remodel seems quite nice in many ways. The doors that open completely are a great asset! Beautiful to have the downstairs one open wide.

Love the kitchen, baths, etc.

And spent a good deal of time in the lovely back outdoor space. That's the first time we have done that. THAT is really, really nice.

Thanks, as always, for your hospitality.

Love the new refrig and stove! And I especially love the wooden bench and wooden table in the dining area. It has a large seating capacity and keeps the theme of minimalism (sp?) that is so welcome throughout the house. We found that the emphasis on simplicity is a great one. It's very calming and enjoyable.

We all spent a lively amount of time discussing all of the new touches, etc. decor, renovations, lighting... designing itself, in fact, with all of its many twists and turns, and being such a creative thing..and so on...and our overall consensus?

Perfect Setting for Friends Reunion

  • 5 of 5
10 Ladies in the 60's had great fun and comfort for our 50 year Junior High School Reunion. The house is comfortable - open for group events but slept 10 women with the privacy and comforts each need. The beach is beautiful, lots of lovely areas to walk and downtown Ventura has shopping, restaurants, also nice area just to walk and catch up. Would love to return with my friends or even my 2 children and their spouses for a family reunion.

Good Times

Seven adults spent six wonderful days in this house. View of the ocean is spectacular. We are in the process of re-booking for next year. We loved the outdoor fire pit. Owners were friendly and the accommodations were first class.

Great value and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a 40th birthday get-together. Mike and Erica were very accommodating and the house was very well equipped. You can't get any closer to the beach! All 8 of us agreed that we wouldn't have changed anything with the house. Ocean Breezes, quiet neighborhood, football on the big screen, and steaks on the grill...

I cannot believe the house is perfect! They say nothing is perfect but trust me this house have everything you need and more...! During our stay I accidentally defrost the fridge and freezer and broke the shower control in the Jack and Jill bath so I called homeowner Erica and she was great at getting back with me and showing me how to get the fridge and freezer working again. With the shower in the Jack and Jill bath it was still working I just couldn't get the switch to switch it to the higher or the lower shower head that's all...but Erica says she'll have it fix after we check out...she was so helpful. Our party of 9 enjoyed every bit of our stay...The beach was private and peaceful, the water was warm, Starbucks, restaurant, and grocery store are just mins away. Our group have to say it was a perfect vaca for us. Thank you so much Mike& Erica. Oh more thing...our full deposit came in the mail with a thank you card from homeowner 9 days after we checked out...isn't that awesome!

Amazing location and home

  • 5 of 5
We feel so lucky we found this amazing house, and had a perfect relaxing week away from hectic LA - boogie boarding in the water, surf lessons and just sitting at the beach. Downtown Ventura has some great restaurants and Seaward avenue is a short walk with a great local feel - nothing was very far. The home which offers everything you can want and more ... thanks Biederbachs for making this an easy process, we can't wait to come back!

Wonderful vacation at an awesome beach house!!!

  • 5 of 5
We would like to thank you for allowing us to rent the wonderful beach house for a week. We had one of the best family vacations ever. The remodel is very nice. The house worked well for our families. We really enjoyed how close everything was to us. It really made things easy for us. The boys were able to have tons of freedom as well. LoL!! The kids enjoyed the beach life. We are very interested in renting the beach house again whether it be in the fall or the same time again next year. Hopefully everything looked ok after we left. Your family has a great beach house and I have recommended it to couple of our friends that have families as well.

Once again thank you for everything that was provided to us and our family thoroughly enjoyed the stay.

Activity and Interests

Local Activities

Four beach volleyball courts 600 feet away at Ventura State Beach. Bike riding. Very nice bike path that starts at the adjacent Ventura State Beach enjoy a nice ride up to the historic Ventura Pier (about one mile) and watch the surfers at the adjacent Surfers Point (premier surf spot for either beginners to experts), or continue on

the bike path for miles riding right along a nice coastal path.

Channel Islands National Park. Right in front of the house are five islands that comprise CINP. Island Packers Cruises, the transportation concessionaire for CINP, operates right out of Ventura Harbor and can take you out to enjoy the islands for day trips, whale watching trips, island kayaking, snorkeling, scuba, hiking, camping, etc. Daily departures from Ventura Harbor (about a 5 minute drive) from the house. CINP has a Visitors Center in the harbor which is also fun to visit and Ventura Harbor has lots of great shops and restaurants as well.

Golf. Two public 18 hole public golf courses within 2-5 miles of the house.

Sportfishing opportunties out of Ventura or Channel Islands Harbor. The islands are a great spot to fish, dive, and visit!

Food and Shopping

Vons Market, Starbucks Coffee and a variety of small retail shops and restaurants are walking/biking distance about 1 mile away at Seaward Avenue and Harbor Boulevard. Banks, gas stations, fast food restaurants, etc are in the same areas. Bike rental and water sports equipment is also nearby.

Downtown Ventura.

Just north of the Ventura Pier and walking or biking distance from the house, you'll find a very robust and revitalized, Historic Downtown Ventura. The Main Street

area of Ventura is filled with great restaurants and bars, shopping and antiquing, a large movie theater, Saturday Farmers Market, etc - all of it located near the San Buenaventura Mission (est. 1782). Lots to do and see in Downtown.

Santa Barbara, CA.

About 25 miles to the north on Highway 101. On your way you'll pass through the beach towns of Carpinteria, Summerland and Montecito each of them are also fun to visit. With a nice little zoo and tons of other recreational, shopping/dining and site seeing options, visiting Santa Barbara make it a really great day trip.

Ojai, CA.

Nice inland drive of about 15 miles away on Highway 33. In the summer, it is not uncommon for Ojai to get into the 90s and even hit 100 on occasion. This is a pretty small town but it is culturally rich with top notch resorts, spas, golf/tennis, shopping,

etc for you to enjoy. Nice hiking further up into the mountains, hot springs and swimming holes can be found right a short drive out of Ojai with a road that will take you up into Los Padres National Forest and more recreational opportunities. Recreational activities at Lake Casitas include great fishing and a water park (open in
