Why Christy Weir chose Central Coast California

We fell in love with the beautiful view of the ocean, the custom tile, the convenient location near historic downtown and beaches, and the quiet neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved staying in the cottage and visiting our daughter. Being able to walk to their house and anywhere else in town was great. Staying in the cottage was so much nicer than being in a hotel--love the outdoor spaces that greeted us each night as we came "home." We will definitely be back!

Excellent Getaway Spot in Ventura!

  • 5 of 5

Tim & Christy were FANTASTIC hosts! First, I communicated some needs for flexibility in my travel, which they graciously accommodated. Second, they were very responsive (and proactive) with the few things I asked for when I arrived. I traveled for a crafting conference, and intended to sew in my spare time back at the cottage. Tim was kind enough to find a table and chair for me to sew on and brought it up- MUCH appreciated! The place was cozy, inviting, and very nicely maintained. It's obvious they put a lot of care into their home, and it showed. I'd be happy to visit again if I found myself in Ventura. Thank you!

Cozy retreat

  • 3 of 5

Quiet and private. Small, but very comfortable. Amount of stairs leading to cottage may be an issue for some.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We agree that the steps can be a challenge for some guests, which is why we have mentioned the number of steps on our listing. (Not for individuals with knee problems) We hope the ocean view at the top is worth it!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This precious little bungalow was perfect in every way. We especially loved the unique decor and the Mediterranean feel of this place. The location was also great, as we wanted to explore not only Ventura, but Santa Barbara, Ojai, Oxnard, and of course the Camarillo Premium Outlets. ;) Good shopping! Tim and Christy were also wonderful hosts, giving us a great deal of privacy, but were available to answer any questions that we had. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend this clean and cozy bungalow to anyone visiting the area!

Peacful & Romantic Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A very bright & sunny hillside cottage tucked up behind the main house in a great location close to town & Pete's Breakfast House! Very very quite & peacful for a couples get away. A few more soft comfy updates needed & a soft place for two to sit would add to the experience! We enjoyed our stay!
