About the owner: 'Nirvana' one of a plethora of homes and rental properties designed and built by Bill Vivatson in the Pierpont Beach area of Ventura. We lived there until 1981 when we moved up to McElrea Heights overlooking the City. With both of us being native New Yorkers, we chose to change the status of our duplex in 2004 (the ocean side) into a vacation rental, mainly to accommodate family and friends who come to visit. 'Nirvana' is not a revolving door vacation rental. It is also our home at the beach and therefore, we take great pride in keeping it a pristine getaway for us and you. I have been dubbed the 'Ambassador' (unofficially) of Ventura and will be more then happy to provide information on what to do, where to dine, just about anything you would want to know about our City. 'Nirvana' is a perfect getaway/retreat in a very quiet, low keyed lane.
Please read the comments posted by guests who have enjoyed their time at our home. Our rates and availability calendar are updated and firm. Being a short term vacation rental, we are bound by the City's ordinance of renting on a weekly basis during high (summer season). No short term renting is permitted.
Mahalo for inquiring - you won't be disappointed. We are registered with the City of Ventura and abide by the good neighbor policy. There is a three night minimum stay.
