Relaxing beach house. Great neighborhood.
Relaxing beach house. Great neighborhood.
This Minnesota family has stayed at the beach house four different times from 2010 through 2012. Our oldest daughter and her husband moved to the area in 2009, and we were looking for a place to stay when we visit them. We wanted a place near the beach that could accommodate six people. (Myself, my husband, our two school aged children, oldest daughter and her husband.) This beach house has been perfect for us. Christina does a fantastic job maintaining it. Every time we've returned there has been something new. (Carpet, dishwasher, door.) It looks exactly as you see in the photos. Christina provides plenty of towels. I do find that we go through a lot of towels during beach vacations. Fortunately, there is a washer and dryer! The kitchen is well stocked with plates, silverware, glasses, pots, and pans. It also includes a dishwasher! The eat-in area is not large, so we all eat dinner together out on the patio almost every night! It is a very short walk to the beach. The house is on a quiet street. We have always felt very safe there. The neighborhood is fantastic. It is walking distance to a delicious bakery (Be sure to try the cream filled donut holes!) Also, Starbucks, Von's and a Yogurt shop are within walking distance. We also walk or drive to In and Out Burger. For the more adventurous, the Ventura pier is a nice hike. Von's can be a bit spendy when you're feeding six or seven people, so shortly after we arrive we head to Target and stock up on our groceries for the week. There are two Target's within a short drive of the beach house. Our days start and end on the beach. Looking for dolphins in the morning (yes, we've seen many!) and watching the sunset in the evening. We highly recommend this place, and can't wait for our 5th trip back!!

One of the best holidays ever!
One of the best holidays ever!
We enjoyed Christina's beach house for the month of March (2012). This house was possibly the best VRBO rental we've had (of 8) so far. It is bright, clean, tastefully decorated and well furnished. The photographs are accurate views of this charming house. I am a cook and was delighted with the well equipped kitchen. The large backyard is a sunny refuge from the often windy beach ( fabulous sand beach a few houses down the lane). We were impressed by the huge television and the vast number of movie channels provided. The spacious and secure garage was perfect for parking our car and bicycles. Marina Park ( 1 block away) was a nice spot to walk our dog. The peaceful neighbourhood was a perfect backdrop for a relaxing holiday. The location was brilliant for touring around Ventura and environs. We enjoyed numerous bicycle rides to Ojai, Oxnard, Santa Paula and up the coast to Carpinteria and beyond. A terrific bike trail allowed us to enjoy a number of rides off road and away from traffic. Any "settling in glitches" were resolved quickly and efficiently by the owner and our deposit was refunded on the spot, as we reluctantly left this lovely vacation rental. This was one of our best cycling holidays ever!

Nice stay gone bad
Nice stay gone bad
Upon our arrival @ 4pm the cleaning lady was still cleaning. She claimed she was running late because she was being through; however she was not through. She claimed to have moved furniture to clean under, but there was evidence under the furniture (animal toy) that she had not done so. Some of the sheets were put on the bed still damp. Kids beds only had quilts on them no sheets, and the oven was left on self clean so we could not use it for the evening.The rest of our stay was enjoyable...until it was ruined by the owner not giving us our deposit back. She claims we had a cat there four our 5 day 4 night stay. She refuses to believe that we DO NOT own a cat and have not in 20 years! Her lack of finding the real party at fault has left her blaming an innocent family. Its a shame that the owner has chosen to accuse us of lying instead of finding the real truth!I'd recommend this property for...anyone who doesn't care if they don't get their deposit back.

Owner response: I strive to keep my beach house well maintained and very clean as does my housekeeper. I use it too! She works diligently to prepare the house for guests. To that end, and because I am allergic to cats, cats are not allowed. In this case, there was animal hair, a wet chew toy, and neighbor reports, all indicating that a cat had been in the house. The housekeeper spent extra time cleaning. We called the next guests to make sure that there were no allergy issues. Since there were not, I waited until the next guests left before cleaning the carpets and washing every piece of bedding in the house. Given all this, I ONLY HELD BACK $100 OF THEIR SECURITY DEPOSIT. If you have any concerns, I would be happy to share the correspondence and proof of mail delivery with you as well as proof of payment of the remainder of the deposit. When you arrive, you will find a clean house with the king and queen beds made up. Because groups bring different numbers of people, the linens for the bunkbeds are kept in the closet depending on need. I have many happy guests who return every year. It is a wonderful house. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thanks! Christina
