Ventura cottage description

The 'Hummingbird Sunset' Cottage (dubbed by our guests) is a Storybook Property above the Heart of Downtown Ventura, Detached Guest house with private bath and kitchenette on property with owner's main house. Treehouse is also a separate structure and sleeps one.

Private lush flower garden with full mountain views and a peek-a-boo of the ocean with the Channel Islands on clear days, deer grazing at Grant park at sunrise on the hill. Just steps to Historic Main street and it's trendy shops and restaurants,night clubs and galleries, to fresh produce at Farmer's market on Saturday mornings. Take the beach cruisers down miles of boardwalk past Surfer's Point, the Fairgrounds, several campgrounds, the longest pier in California, to the Harbor and beyond. Hiking, Surfing, and nightlife are all walking distance. Ojai and Santa Barbara are quick drives away. The rooms are small but charming, the accommodations are for people who want to explore what the area has to offer. Fire Pit, Fountain, Barbecue, Porch Swing, it is romantic and subtle for the perfect get-away. So close to what you wanna see but feels like the perfect jungle Hide-Away.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: I am a business owner, a mom and a former art director in the film industry. I love Ventura and all it has to offer in the way of daytime adventure and nature, nightlife and art. Forbes magazine lists Ventura as one of the top four places to live in the U.S.! I agree. I have been surprised and pleased with the lovely guests we have had to enjoy the space.

              Why the Owner Chose Ventura:
              Just one hour North of Hollywood, one half hour South of Santa Barbara, and twenty minutes West of Ojai, we have the best of the ocean, the city and the mountains right here and a quick hop away. Pets are also welcome in the cottage. Securely fenced and ready to roam, the large garden and wild lower yard are, as recent guests described it, 'Dog Heaven'.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The treehouse is lovely, completely wired and heated. It is perfect for naps or for foot-sturdy adults/ children to sleep in (steps are steep). Best view on the property of the green, untouched mountains to our North.
