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!

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!

Lovely hillside setting!

  • 5 of 5

A very quiet, peaceful bungalow set in a lovely neighborhood, close to everything in Ventura!

The high ceilings and large windows provide plenty of light. You can even watch the sunrise from your bed! We enjoyed the ocean views from the large patio that is out front, and the smaller patio that is close to the cottage doors. Nice touches and extras were: delicious coffee, a completely stocked kitchenette, beautiful decorative tile inside and out, cleanliness of the cottage, the hillside setting, and everything you'd really need!

We especially enjoyed the bungalow's location. There are many great beaches nearby! We were grateful that Tim gave us suggestions and specifics on some really nice spots. Also, we were close enough to explore beautiful Santa Barbara, to shop on Santa Claus Lane in Carpinteria, and to see the wintering monarch butterflies in a local park. We also took an easy, beautiful drive through some of the mountains to Solvang, "Little Denmark". It's a fun town and we caught the best farmer's market there! Finally, don't miss the Reagan Library in Simi Valley! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...we even stayed an extra day! Christy and Tim were helpful with questions & suggestions, available but not intrusive. We would love to return!

Intimate and private Mediterranean-like getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely bungalow! This jewel of a cottage is perfectly decorated with the mexican tile in the kitchen, bathroom, and floor, and the king chair is soooo comfortable! The bougainvillea was abounding and provided privacy. In all, we kinda' felt like we were in the mediterranean with the ocean view in the distance! Close to downtown Main Street and San Buenaventura State Beach. We wished we could have stayed an extra day! Thank you Christy and Tim for sharing such a special place for our anniversary celebration!
