vacation rental description

Beach Front Home, 1045 Waterbury Lane, Ventura, California Right on the Sand!!! 

This home has been a vacation rental for eight years as of 2014.  Rent from the owner who grew up in the house since 1972, and who also lives in Ventura and who will help in every way to make sure your stay in Ventura is the best it can be. Read our 70+ reviews!!!

Entire house remodel just completed this week (end of January 2014) that involved inside and outside work. New kitchen, new bathrooms, new bedrooms, new furnishings, new outside, new garden, etc. Pictures of the remodeled house are forthcoming (the pictures below represent the old house). Everything functions consistent with the descriptions provided below, but the house looks totally different.

As an Beach Front Home, this house is located in the wonderful Pierpont Beach Community in the City of Ventura (60 miles north of Los Angeles).  A year round weekly rental (or possibly monthly), our beach house easily sleeps 10 and is a perfect getaway for families, or a group of friends and it would also make an awesome business retreat.

Email me to book your stay or if you have any questions, need additional information or would like to see additional pictures (including  interior pictures) and I'll respond immediately. We are happy to  arrange for a viewing of the home as well.  Tons of feedback from previous and repeat guests is also available....just ask.

Situated right on a prime large beach, you'll enjoy the comfort and the views of the ocean and offshore Channel Islands which provide a background for spectacular sunsets. Relax on the deck or back patio (with gas fire pit), or curl on the couch along side our gas fireplace. With all the creature comforts of your own home, you will never want to leave our getaway......right on the beach!

Two full stories above the ground level garage, this home has 3  bedrooms and 3 baths, a family room, living room with attached casual or formal dining room, reading/recreational nook, full kitchen in approximately 2400 SF of living in a very open floor plan with lots of windows to show off the beach, ocean and island views.

activities and attractions in Ventura Central Coast

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
summer).

We enjoyed Evenings around the fire pit in the secluded back courtyard, at the outside table/bar overlooking the waves, on the deck.... We found that we didn't want to leave the house!

Repeat renter (1st review after remodel)

Review submitted: March 12, 2014   Date of arrival: March 7, 2014

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?

WE LOVE IT!

Dear Mike and Erica, thanks so much for letting us rent this great house. Mike's 60th was very memorable because we were here. Tons of his friends came by over the course of the week.
