About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This ONE OF A KIND beach house is perfect for couples and small families with a desire to spend time on one of the best beaches that Southern California has to offer - Faria Beach - with Mondo's Beach which is famous for our surfing. A winning combination of location, quality and price.

Our Beach house is on the sand is known by locals as the new Malibu, but without the traffic, pollution or crowds! Enjoy the 2 mile sandy beach which is rare for the area, as many of our beaches are rocky and offer very little sand. We are also centrally located 65 miles north of Los Angeles, 20 minutes south of Santa Barbara, and 10 minutes from Ventura and Carpenteria. This location is ideal for enjoying the best that each of these world famous destinations has to offer.

In addition to location, our home is not a typical "cottage" beach house. It's a high quality constructed beach house decorated with an eye for detail and beach life.

The large master suite is an experience in and of itself as it has magnificent views of the ocean which can be enjoyed in our luxurious king size bed, along side a roaring romantic fireplace or on the seaside balcony. The master bath offers a large walk in shower for two and 2 sinks/vanities.

The second bedroom offers a queen bed with accompanying full bathroom. The first floor offers an open floor plan with kitchen and dining table and chairs that flow into the cozy living room.

The living room has a fireplace, high definition 42” TV with doors that open onto the large ocean front patio. There are windows that traverse from the kitchen to the living room providing wonderful ocean views and the symphony of waves. On this floor are also a small third bedroom with full bed and adjacent full bath. On this floor is also a washer and dryer.

The large ocean side deck has a Jacuzzi, table and chairs and two chaise lounges, with stairs that lead down from the seawall to the ocean/sand. Please see a picture of the stairs on the website. The drop from the top of the seawall to the sand ranges 10 to 15 feet. During high tide, and depending on the season, the water can splash against the seawall, which can make entry into the ocean from the stairs impossible. However, Mondo’s beach is several hundred yards to the north and it is sandy and accessible all year around.

The home also offers a single garage and driveway parking with easy access to Hwy 101 Santa Barbara, Carpentaria, Ventura or Los Angeles. The Beach House also has a roof top deck with stunning views.

Toast to the romance of the best of Southern California beach living on the large ocean patio with Jacuzzi, chaise lounges, table and chairs and gas grill. Complimentary champagne is awaiting your arrival. You will not find a comparable vacation rental for the price, especially on the sand!

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT HOST WEDDINGS, EVENTS, DINNERS, PARTIES OR GATHERINGS WITHOUT EXCEPTION. WE ALSO HAVE A 7 PERSON MAXIMUM.

Small, but nice beach front option

  • 4 of 5

The good: beach front location. Great for short walks, sea kayaking, swimming, sunset viewing. Not a lot of sand, but we definitely enjoyed what there was. The smaller beach size means a quiet beachfront pretty much to yourself!

The deck is great. We spent pretty much all our time out there. Nice neighbors (all side are rentals).

Property was clean, adequately supplied. Small details need work (batteries in clock, broken handles), but overall we found the place to be very enjoyable for the weekend.

The OK: Would not recommend the house for the 6-7 as advertised. The master bedroom is nice and large, larger than the kitchen/dining/living room! Then there;s one queen size room, and one double room (converted from half the small garage). Supposedly the couch is usable as a fold out, but we found no bedding available. Kitchen table only sits 4, there are only 5 coffee cups, etc. Location is more aptly described as mid-way between Carpenteria and Ventura. We ventured into both for afternoon outings. Decent food, nice scenery.

The bad: We still don't have our deposit back! We paid in full 9/22;, deposit due back to us within 7 days; we're at day 14 and they say they can't find any of our paperwork?! And we even stripped the beds and started the laundry like they asked us to (despite paying a cleaning fee). Stay tuned on this matter.

I'd recommend this property to a small group (no more than 5) who are happiest sitting on the deck and taking short walks on the beach. Compared to other rentals along this stretch (we were able to check them out), the highlights of this one are the large master bedroom and the deck. Just make sure you get your deposit back!!!

Labor Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful 3 night Labor Day vacation at the Faria Beach house. We had two families and it worked out perfectly to share this beautiful home ON the ocean. The property was well maintained and accurately reflected in the photos on VRBO. This is one of our favorite surf spots, so it was perfect to be able to just walk to the beach! Because we never wanted to leave the ocean, we cooked every dinner there, which was easy between the BBQ and full kitchen. The owners were very communicative, easy to work with, and quick to respond to any questions about the house. I read all the reviews before booking and quickly dismissed the "average for the price" review, since anyone who is insensitive enough to refer to a hardworking housekeeper as "the help" is certainly not an opinion I would value. I will definitely recommend this place to friends, and we'll certainly be back!

Definitely going back

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple spent a week at this beautiful gem. It was everything it was advertised to be. The location was perfect and allowed us to spend the day exploring the incredible sights in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and even Ojai, and still be back in time to enjoy the sunset on the deck (I recommend buying some oysters from the Jolly Oyster in Ventura, open a bottle of wine and watch the sun slip into the Pacific. It doesn't get any better). The house was immaculate and very well appointed. Contrary to the last review, there were no bugs, no problems, and no worries. Of course, we got our full deposit back, so that says something. We have already made reservations to go back this summer.
