traveler reviews for this ventura house rental

Did the Humans or Dogs have more fun?

Review submitted: July 31, 2013   Date of arrival: July 19, 2013

What a lovely time we had at this home. It was the perfect atmosphere for a family with three college aged boys. Friends came and went during our stay and there was plenty of room for all. It was just perfect being so close to the beach and having the backyard provided us the opportunity to dine outside and enjoy the lovely weather. It was the perfect home for the dogs as well. They loved the backyard, the beach and neighborhood walks. We hope to be able to visit again soon.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Wonderful Summer Beach Vacation

Review submitted: June 20, 2012   Date of arrival: June 8, 2012

We stayed for a week and the owner even let us arrive early (1:00 pm). We were shown the house and all the amenities, and then were left to have a fun and relaxing week. Everything is provided for in the house (fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ grill, and laundry room). There's a fantastic outdoor shower to clean up after a day at the beach (which is literally a one minute walk)! The place is perfect for a family, or even for a larger group considering the outdoor studio. The fireplace outside was a great addition and we loved using it on those cool breezy nights. We loved that it was dog friendly, and that the owner was so welcoming. Highly recommend!

Owners response: Of course I'm delighted to receive such a sterling review of the beach house Jim and I treasure and are so pleased to share with guests. I try to imagine what I would want and need during a special time with family or friends and try my best to provide it: BBQ, outdoor shower, cool, Western style dining room conversion, fireplace, comfy couch and two televisions, grassy outdoors with lovely plants and palms and a special outdoor studio that is usually taken over by the kids. Thank you for your kind remarks! Jane and Jim

I love this beach was close to a dog friendly beach and to the harbor. My teens and friends kayaked in the harbor, swam daily in the ocean, boogie boarded, had the best ice cream at costal cone, amazing fish tacos on Seward, and the best fish and chips at Andrias. We tanned and chilled and read books, and made S'mores at the onsite firepit. Cant recommend it enough!
